PhD Studentships

Department of Bioengineering



The world-class Department of Bioengineering (rated 5* in the Research
Assessment Exercise) has available for October 2006 1 BBSRC-funded
standard studentship, 1 BBSRC-funded CASE studentship, and additional
department-funded studentships. It also wishes to select a candidate to
put forward for a Microsoft PhD scholarship (see
http://www.research.microsoft.com/ero.icd/phd/)



Eligibility

BBSRC studentships are only open to candidates who have been normally
resident in the UK for at least 3 years. Departmental studentships and
Microsoft scholarships are also open to EU nationals. Candidates should
have, or expect to obtain, a good 2.1 or above in a relevant first
degree.



Topics

The Departments research interests lie within the following broad
themes:

* Biological and medical imaging

* Biomechanics and robotics

* Biophysical and physiological modelling

* Medical devices and informatics

* Neuroscience and neural computation

* Physiological fluid mechanics



Candidates should look at the Departmental Website
http://www.imperial.ac.uk/bioengineering to find supervisors and topics
of interest within these themes.



For the BBSRC standard studentship the topic needs to be within the
remit of BBSRC and preferably within areas that BBSRC is trying to
promote (www.bbsrc.ac.uk). For the BBSRC CASE award the topic should lie
within the research interests of Dr. O'Hare or Dr. Bull. For the
Microsoft scholarship the topic should be closely allied with the field
of computing.



Potential applicants should contact the appropriate member of
departmental staff to discuss putting forward a case - see email
addresses on the Departmental Website.



Deadline: 6th March 2006
