PhD opportunity at Edinburgh in Optical Medical Imaging

Developing novel chemistry in the area of organic upconverting materials for optical medical imaging

The EPSRC-funded InLightenUs project brings together a multi-disciplinary team of internationally recognised academics who have world-class track records in chemistry, sensors, optics, machine learning and lasers etc. and aims to deliver transformative technologies and devices within the area of muscular skeletal disease and cancer.

The University of Edinburgh is looking to recruit a high-caliber PhD student to join this dynamic team. In particular, an enthusiastic chemistry/chemical technology student is sought to develop novel chemistry in the area of organic upconverting materials. The project will initially focus on the design, organic synthesis and physical characterisation of small molecule fluorophores, with the aim to extend these into the near-infrared wavelength regime via one- and two-photon excitation.

This project will link organic and polymer chemistry to incorporate these new fluorophores into polymeric materials for applications across the project. This affords the student the opportunity for both organic and polymeric synthesis, as well as using high-throughput technologies of polymer microarrays for combinatorial chemistry.

The project is suitable for graduates with strong chemistry background with a keen interest in organic and polymer chemistry and its application in a biomedical setting. Interest in biology, informatics, image analysis, engineering, or physics would be beneficial.

The deadline for application is 1 May 2021
