About this project

To celebrate the University's research successes, the University of Hull is offering a full-time UK/EU PhD Scholarship or International Fees Bursary for candidates applying for the following projects, except 3., which is for UK & EU students only and is a four-year project, funded by Smith and Nephew.

Wounds that fail to heal are a worldwide unmet clinical need. Current therapies are often ineffective, largely because not enough is known about how wounds normally heal or what goes wrong in pathological wounds, such as leg ulcers or pressure sores.

To address this problem, the University of Hull, in partnership with the locally-based global leader in Advanced Wound Management, Smith and Nephew, have established the Hull PhD Cluster for Advanced Wound Care. A total of 7 multi-disciplinary PhD studentships are available to start in Sept 2017.

You have the exciting opportunity to join this cohort of PhD students working towards the common goal of applying cutting-edge research techniques to better understand and develop new ways to improve wound repair. The cluster incorporates a pool of experienced supervisors who are experts in wound healing, biomedicine, biomedical engineering and chemistry. All projects also include industry supervisors and provide unique industrial training opportunities

Studentships are available in the following areas: 

Biomedical Engineering

Chemistry

Biological Sciences

If you are interested in one or more of these opportunities, please contact the relevant supervisor at the email address listed above for further information about the individual projects.
