Medical Science Division, John Radcliffe Hospital.


 We are looking for a motivated PhD student with interests in brain cancer nanomedicines, magnetic and plasmonic nanoparticle synthesis, and the patient-derived tumor model development, to join an exciting project here at the University of Limerick from 1st June 2022.
Please email to ( a CV and cover letter with previous research experience to express your interest.  

Project description:
This PhD student position is available in my own group jointly associate with Prof. Tofail Syed and Prof. Christophe Silien. The project addresses brain cancer cells mitochondrial targeting using magneto-plasmonic nanomedicine and further analysis using Raman Spectroscopy/Microscopy.
This PhD position will sit within a well-funded research program of SFI-IRC, Govt of Ireland.
PhD position is funded for 4 years, tuition fee for European Union (EU) candidate or Non EU candidate will be covered, monthly stipend, travel and contingency grant for 4 years.  

Qualification requirements:
In order to meet the general entry requirements, the applicant must have completed a master’s degree, in Physics, Chemistry, Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Nanoscience, or Nanotechnology.

 Required/Desirable Skills:
1. Synthesis of Inorganic nanoparticles and their characterizations
2. cell culture, hands-on 3D cell cultures, if the candidate has experience with working on patient-derived cancer models that will be highly desirable.
3. Familiar with Raman spectroscopy and its clinical applications.
