Innovating biomaterials design for regenerative medicine and biosensing

Vacancies


We welcome applications from excellent and enthusiastic students and postdocs to join the Stevens Group! We receive a very high number of applicants and successful PhD applicants will typically have graduated with a high First class honours degree and have research experience. Successful postdocs will have a strong publication record. Since the group is usually full it is best for prospective applicants to contact a year or so in advance where possible. In both cases we welcome the very best researchers from all over the world and from many different backgrounds - the group hosts chemists, engineers, cell biologists, surgeons, physicists and materials scientists who are looking for an interdisciplinary adventure!

Postdocs and Students


Prospective students and postdocs are invited to directly contact us.

Enterprise DTP Studentship on high throughput and effective transfection of cells


Closing Date: Closing date: 23:59 (GMT) on 17 June 2019


Cell transfection is one of the most powerful techniques within cell therapy, regenerative medicine, cell biology and the life sciences, though there are several drawbacks such as safety concerns and low-throughput, respectively, limiting their range of applicability as well as clinical impact. Within this PhD studentship, we will use a combination of state-of-the-art material technologies available within the Stevens Group and TTP plc to design and optimise transfection assay protocols for cells such as cardiac cells and immune cells, available within Prof Sian Harding's research programme.
Supervised by Profs Stevens and Harding, the student will be trained within a vibrant and multidisciplinary environment in state-of-the-art material designs and engineering, cell biology and nanotechnology. An ambitious and pro-active student will be given top training in these fields towards the goal of creating a high-throughput cell transfection system based on platform technologies available within Imperial College London and TTP plc.
This project, funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC) Doctoral Training Partnership, enable graduates with excellent honours degrees to undertake a 3.5 year training programme, which includes a research project plus training in research methods and transferable key skills, leading to the submission of a doctoral thesis and the award of a PhD. This studentship is tied to a specific Collaborative Award in Science and Engineering (CASE) project in collaboration with our commercial partner TTP plc.

PhD position in the development of new biomaterials for regenerative medicine


Closing Date: The position will be filled as applications are received


This project aims to synthesise polymer-based materials designed according to the requisites in bone or cardiovascular tissue engineering. A major goal will be the elucidation of the physical and chemical properties at the cell-material interface using state of the art materials-based characterisation techniques. The key features of the materials’ properties on the influence of cells in 2D and 3D culture will then be assessed.

Supervisor: Prof Molly M. Stevens
Positions available: 1
Start Date: Optional
Duration: 36 months
Funding: Available to UK/EU applicants only. International applicants must be self-funded.
Deadline to apply: Enquiries can be made at any time

 



PhD position in the development of new biomaterials for biosensing


Closing Date: The position will be filled as applications are received


This project will focus on the development of new nanomaterial-based assays that detect biomarkers specific to cancer and infectious diseases according to relevant biomarker concentrations and cost-amenability. The physical properties of the assay will need to be completely characterised to understand the effects of agglomeration and influence of surrounding proteins. This project includes preclinical tests using patient samples.
