PhD vacancies

PhD Studentship in “Anthropomorphic dosimetry phantom for combined HIFU and radiotherapy”

Closes 15th April 2016

The Department of Medical Physics & Biomedical Engineering is inviting applications for a studentship in the area of High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) and Radiotherapy.

This project would identify or develop materials and design novel phantoms with suitable properties and configurations for combined HIFU/radiotherapy treatment delivery. This combined phantom would be used as a QA tool for MR-guided treatment delivery as well as an end-to-end verification tool: it will need to be MR compatible due to the growing use of MR-guidance in both treatments.

The successful candidate will be based primarily at The Institute of Cancer Research in Sutton, Surrey, but will also spend time at the National Physical Laboratories in Teddington, and at UCL.

PhD studentship in Image Guided Robotic Microsurgery

Closes 30th May 2016

The Department of Medical Physics & Biomedical Engineering is inviting applications for a studentship in the area of image Guided Robotic Microsurgery. The applicant will be part of the vibrant Translational Imaging Group of the Centre for Medical Image Computing, and the EPSRC Doctoral Training Centre in Medical Imaging.

The aim of the PhD will be to develop technology in the area microsurgical robotics, with applications in eye surgery. The successful candidate can have a background on mechanical engineering, thus focusing on robotic system design and control, or computer science, thus expected to design, develop and implement software tools to demonstrate image-guidance algorithms.

This project would suit someone with a background in biomedical engineering, computer science or a numerical discipline. The candidate will be expected to observe and participate in surgical cases and fully understand the complexities of delivering technology into the operating theatre.

PhD studentship in characterization of unusual biomineralization systems: from nano to macro

Closes 30th June 2016

The Department of Medical Physics & Biomedical Engineering is inviting applications for a studentship in the area of Biomineralization.

In this project, we propose to use state-of-the-art electron microscopy techniques to study and characterize the nanostructure of unusual biomineralization systems and compare these with regular mammalian/bird/reptile bones. The new information that will be acquired about these unusual systems will not only improve our understanding of how a wide variety of organisms produce hard tissues, but could also lead to the creation of new bioinspired materials.

The PhD student will actively take part in the development of the project, sample collection and preparation, experimental measurements, analysis of the data and interpretation. This is a project involving experimental research where laboratory experience is a plus. Initially, the project will make extensive use of electron microscopes, with new techniques added as the research work progresses. The PhD candidate will be expected to collect and process animal tissues.

This interdisciplinary project would suit someone with a background in anatomy, zoology, chemistry or materials science.
