Cambridge University PhD Scholarship in Biopharmaceutical development 2020/21

Cambridge University is inviting application for a PhD scholarship in Biopharmaceutical Development in Low-Field NMR/MRI 2020/21

The University of Cambridge is a collegiate research university in Cambridge, United Kingdom. Founded in 1209 and granted a royal charter by King Henry III in 1231, Cambridge is the second-oldest university in the English-speaking world and the world’s fourth-oldest surviving university

Furthermore, the overarching aim of this PhD is to develop NMR diffusion and T1/T2 relaxometry techniques for low-field, benchtop NMR systems ultimately providing a non-invasive NMR tool that can be used in/at the biopharmaceutical production line to monitor critical cell growth and productivity parameters.

In addition, this project will use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) velocimetry to study the flow and shear fields inside the retention filters of a perfusion bioreactor in order to gain a more quantitative understanding of mass transfer during such processes.
