About the Project
Two funded PhD studentships are offered as part of the H2020 MSCA Innovative Training Network ‘Aquasense’ coordinated by University of Glasgow (grant agreement number 813680). The overall aim of the Aquasense project is to develop autonomous sensors for improved monitoring of water quality. The ESRs will be based at Tyndall-University College Cork and will further develop sensors based on Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) enabling technology for detection of a range of pesticides (ESR 1) and electrochemical sensors for sensing of heavy metals (ESR2). The successful applicants will join an existing team of PhD students and Post Docs and complement on-going research activities in nanosensor device integration underway within the group. Work will focus on:
The ESRs will have access to state-of-the-art equipment and will be provided with relevant training courses in fields such as new materials, sensors fabrication, wireless communication and system integration, as well as a variety of complementary courses such as IPR, grant writing and exploiting the scientific results. Mobility within the network will ensure exposure to complementary academic and industrial research environments.
Salary will be in line with Marie-Curie terms and conditions.
