PhD: Quantum Sensors for Early Disease Diagnosis

We seek to recruit an outstanding engineer/physical scientist to build a new  generation of quantum sensors for early disease diagnosis at the point of  care. This exciting PhD project is aligned to the i-sense EPSRC IRC, a large  interdisciplinary research collaboration, led by UCL, which aims to detect  infectious diseases much earlier than ever before (Director Prof Rachel  McKendry).

The research will aim to harness the unique properties of quantum materials  to develop an ultra-sensitive diagnostic devices to detect the very early stages of infection. This project will involve the use of novel materials and  optical detection systems.
