We are interested in receiving applications from talented, motivated graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. Successful postdoctoral candidates are expected to have a strong publication record in relevant fields (engineering, physics, chemistry). Good communication skills and work ethics are required. The projects will involve collaborations with partners at Harvard University, MIT, Stanford University, and the University of Cambridge. To apply, please send a full CV and a cover letter to Dr. Yetisen at a.yetisen@imperial.ac.uk. Reference letters are not required for initial inquiry, but are required for full consideration (should be arranged to be emailed directly to Dr. Yetisen). A number of positions for postdocs and graduate students are currently available for on-going and new projects. Relevant areas include:

1. Holographic sensors for medical diagnostics, 2. Contact lens sensors in ocular diagnostics, 3. Tattoo sensors for metabolic function monitoring, 4. Hydrogel fibre optic devices for implantable diagnostics. For more details, e-mail Dr. Yetisen (a.yetisen@imperial.ac.uk).

PhD Studentships and Scholarships

One PhD studentship in optical sensors by the Department of Chemical Engineering is available, with tuition fees and living stipend fully covered. It is open to all applicants including overseas students. Only applicants with an outstanding academic track record will be considered. Candidates will be considered until the position is filled.

The Yetisen group will support applications for the Imperial Marshall Scholarship Scheme (US citizens only), Imperial College and China Scholarship Council PhD Programme (CSC-Imperial PhD scholarship), CSC PhD scholarships (Chinese applicants can also apply for full PhD scholarships that cover tuition fees via their universities in China, or Chinese embassy in the UK).

Self-funded students are also encouraged to contact by e-mail.

English language requirement

Non-native English speakers should demonstrate adequate academic language skills to study in the Department of Chemical Engineering. IELTS: 7.0 overall (minimum 6.5 in all elements); TOEFL: 100 overall (minimum 22 in all elements). Find out more about the English language requirement.

Postdoctoral Research Associate Position and Fellowships

A postdoctoral research associate position in biophotonics funded by the Department of Chemical Engineering is open. Applications for this position will be considered until the position is filled. Only applicants with an outstanding publication record will be considered. The Yetisen group will support postdoctoral researchers for application for the Wellcome Trust Fellowships, Royal Academy of Engineering Fellowships, Newton International Fellowships, Marie Curie Fellowships and China Scholarship Council (CSC).
