Funded projects

This is a full list of the funded research projects available. Note that in the Experimental Particle Physics and Astronomy areas, the projects listed are examples, and the exact project choice can be discussed after you apply. In all other project areas, specific projects have priority for funded scholarships. Across all areas, studentships are normally only available for UK and in some cases EU students. Self-funded students and students with external scholarships are also welcome to apply: our funding page has full details on funding options.

Terahertz imaging for improved skin cancer treatment

Supervisor: Dr Emma MacPhersonlogo2.giflogo1.gif

Group: THz Photonics
Project details: here
Funding: Fully funded PhD studentship (42 months).
Start date: October 2020. Application deadline: ongoing

This project builds on and develops skills relating to optics, signal processing, programming and robotics with a view to developing a new technique (terahertz imaging) for diagnosis and monitoring of skin conditions. No previous experience in medicine or medical physics is required, just an interest to apply knowledge to this area is sufficient. The project will give the student hands on experience and there will be both experimental and theoretical aspects to the project, and a chance to collaborate with industrial partners.

This is a unique opportunity for interdisciplinary research within an established and international team.

Warwick Centre for Doctoral Training in Analytical Sciences

logo1.giflogo2.gifThe Warwick Centre for Doctoral Training in Analytical Sciences is recruiting the next generation of analytical scientists. With the world-leading facilities and expertise in Analytical Science at Warwick and partner external facilities (e.g., Diamond, ILL, ISIS) at their disposal, our students will graduate with a unique combination of skills in exploiting synergies between different experimental methods, e.g., diffraction, electrochemistry, mass spectrometry, microscopy and NMR, and in harnessing the power of combining data collection with experimental design, statistical analysis and simulation. Research and training will be delivered from across physical sciences, engineering and manufacturing, statistics, life and medical sciences in close partnership with industry, with research areas including pharmaceuticals, agro-chemicals and additives, soft matter, biological systems, energy and functional materials.

How to apply: We invite applications from recent graduates with a strong first degree in any related discipline, including Chemistry, Engineering, Life Sciences, Mathematics, Pharmacy, Physics and Statistics. Studentships are available for UK citizens for September 2019 entry (full fees + consumables budget and minimum £14k stipend). EU students can apply for a limited number of stipends covering tuition fees. Applications are invited throughout the year.
