Understanding null tissue effects of nanosecond electroporation (pulsed electric fields)

Location: Bangor University, School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering

Project ID: BUK2E053
Annual Stipend: £11,937
Application Deadline: Monday 12th December 2022

A competitive KESS 2 studentship is available to an excellent student to fund an Research Masters degree in Engineering. The studentship provides a stipend of £11,937 with a fee waiver for BU tuition fees.

The Research Masters degree in Engineering uses a multi-disciplinary, research-based approach to teach postgraduate researchers the skills needed to pursue a research career in academia, industry or research institutes. The research project is an interdisciplinary collaboration between the schools Computer Science and Electronic Engineering and industry partner Creo Medical.

The research is a mix of computer modelling and computer simulations and practical research in the design and development of a concept medical device that harness pulsed electric fields or nanosecond electroporation energy. This bases of this work is electromagnetic theory.

Applicants are expected to hold a BSc degree equivalent to a UK 2.2 in a relevant subject (i.e. Engineering, Computer Science, Physics, Mathematics).

To apply for this studentship, please e-mail a CV, a degree transcript and a covering letter detailing your motivation and experience with research, along with one reference letter to Ilan Davies (eeu25b@bangor.ac.uk or ilan.davies@creomedical.com)  and cc to Penny Dowdney p.j.dowdney@bangor.ac.uk. The closing date for applications is 12/12/2022.

Successful applicants would be able to start the degree on or before December 2022. For enquiries please email eeu25b@bangor.ac.uk or ilan.davies@creomedical.com
