PhD UCL 2023


Fully Funded Phd Project Available at University College London

A fully-funded PhD Project is available in the new lab of Dr Bolognesi at University College London – Department of Chemistry. The project will focus on microfluidic strategies – based on interfacial transport mechanisms (e.g., diffusiophoresis/osmosis) and optical manipulation techniques – to control the motion and distribution of micro-/nano-particles within a microfluidic environment. 

Microdevices for particle filtration, pre-concentration, directed delivery and pre-concentration will be developed and exploited for healthcare applications, such as bio-sensing, diagnostics and drug delivery. During the project, the student will engage in collaborations with academic and industrial project partners in UK and overseas.

If you are interested, contact us to discuss your application.

Detailed description of the project and application procedure are available at this link.

The application deadline has been extended until beginning of April.

Project Start date is October 2023.



Post-doc opening in paper-based diagnostics

The group is looking for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position to work at UCL on an exciting and ambitious research on biomarker preconcentration in paper-based analytical devices.

Point-of-care testing devices enable rapid, affordable, and widely accessible diagnosis, but their limited sensitivity makes them inappropriate for the diagnosis of early-stage diseases. To address this ongoing technological challenge, this EPSRC-funded project aims to introduce a radically new concept for biomarker preconcentration by exploiting colloid transport mechanisms based on interfacial and electrokinetic phenomena. 

The research will be run in close collaboration with Global Access Diagnostics – a leading developer of lateral flow assays and rapid diagnostic technologies.

The research associate will join Dr Bolognesi's lab in the Department of Chemistry at University College London. 

Application deadline: 31/01/2023 

Preferred starting date: mid-March 2023 (or soon after) 

Duration: 18 months in the first instance
