“A Novel Sensing Method for Multi-parametric Soil Analysis for Environmental and Agricultural Applications”
Closing date: May 31, 2023
We are seeking to appoint a funded PhD student in the Research Centre for Biomedical Engineering in collaboration with Delta-T Devices, an expert manufacturer in the agricultural and environmental technology industry and one of the market leaders in soil and plant sensors. The full-time studentship will commence on 1st July 2023.
Soil sensors are increasingly employed in large scale and specialist agricultural and environmental monitoring applications. Accurate soil measurements can be key to increasing crop yield, reducing the use of fertilisers, or preventing environmental disasters. However, the sensors used globally in this sector suffer setbacks that necessitate innovative research. Due to the similarities between sensing technologies for soil and for biological samples, the cross-disciplinary application of biomedical sensor methodologies to soil science promises to be game changing.
This project will feature an innovative cross-disciplinary approach, applying biomedical engineering methodology for the design of innovative, high performing soil sensors. The research spans across three of the fastest developing technological sectors: biomedical engineering, agricultural technology, and environmental sensing. This work will ultimately contribute to addressing the globally emerging environmental and food security needs.
What is offered
All interested applicants are welcome to apply and will be offered an annual stipend of £21,000 plus £4,000 for consumables for three years. The studentship also covers the ‘Home’ fees in full or 50% of international fees for three years.
The studentship will be awarded following a successful interview and on the basis of outstanding academic achievement and the potential to produce cutting edge-research.
