CombiDiag (Peripheral Biomarker Based Combinatorial Early Diagnostics for Dementia) is an international doctoral network funded mainly under Horizon Europe Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions to train Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs). It brings together leading academic and industrial experts in Europe and worldwide, and builds a triple-i (interdisciplinary, intersectoral and international) research & training platform with the required multidisciplinary expertise and cutting-edge technologies for the development of peripheral biomarker based combinatorial early diagnostics for dementia.
We are looking for a highly motivated and committed candidate to participate in this innovative research and training programme. The Research Fellow will be funded by UK Research and Innovation and will work alongside the other ESRs in the CombiDiag network. You will be based in the Wolfson Nanomaterials and Devices Laboratory at Plymouth, which is a cleanroom-based lab equipped with state-of-the-art fabrication and characterization facilities. The primary aim of this project is to develop multiplex graphene biosensors for the detection of peripheral AD biomarkers for point of care applications in early-stage AD diagnostics.
You will be working on the development of graphene biosensors alongside with other researchers, having several secondment opportunities with partner institutions and attending a series of training events of the CombiDiag network over the three-year period. You will be expected to register as a staff candidate PhD student at the University of Plymouth on satisfying the enrollment criteria of the Doctoral College.
Requirement & eligibility:
Qualifications First degree with a minimum of 2.1 honors in a relevant field (e.g. biology, biochemistry, electronics, physics, or related discipline). A Master degree or PhD level research experience would be particularly welcome
