Fully-Funded PhD Studentship in Engineering at Swansea University in UK, 2013/14

Swansea University and the Methodist Hospital Research Institute offers Fully-Funded PhD Studentship in Development of Point of Care Diagnostics for Heart Disease Biomarkers. The studentship is only available to candidates from the UK/EU.  Students should have an interest in micro-fabrication and application of semiconductor processing technology in medical products. The first year of the PhD will be completed at Swansea University. In years 2 and 3, the student will continue their PhD as an employee of The Methodist Hospital Research Institute, Texas and be based in Texas. For the final 12 months of the PhD, the student will return to Swansea University to complete the PhD. The application deadline is May 31st 2013. 

About Scholarship: This is a joint project between Swansea University and The Methodist Hospital Research Institute, Texas. The first year of the PhD will be completed at Swansea University. In years 2 and 3, the student will continue their PhD as an employee of The Methodist Hospital Research Institute, Texas and be based in Texas. For the final 12 months of the PhD, the student will return to Swansea University to complete the PhD. The World Health Organisation (WHO) figures from 2008 determined that ischemic heart disease followed by stroke is responsible for 23.6% of all global mortalities. The diagnosis and management of acute ischemic stroke is limited by the lack of rapid diagnostic assays for use in both an emergency and community-based setting. The ability to correlate blood-based protein biomarkers with stroke would aid in the development of such rapid diagnostics. This proposed programme of research would focus on the development of a point of care (POC) diagnostic system based on a silicon nanowire biosensor chip integrated with a micofluidic flow cell.
