Open Positions

New: fully funded PhD position in the area of artificial skin fabrication: making a stretchable, self-healing sensor-system in the laboratory.

A fully funded Ph.D. position is available (sorry, but funding source allows only UK/EU nationalities) in the area of artificial skin fabrication. This project is about using cutting-edge research for fabricating stretchable, self-healing sensor systems with a nanofibrous structure with living cells in it (artificial skin). We will use 3D nanoprinting and electrospinning techniques for the fabrication. A motivated experimentalist is sought, with background in bioengineering or nanotechnology. This is a joint project with EMPA, Switzerland (part of the ETH domain), and 50% of the time the research will be performed in St. Gallen, Switzerland. Please apply here if you feel you are interested and are a good match. Interviews start in December 2016.

PhD position in the area of 3D nanoprinting artificial skin and organs:

Self-funded students for a Ph.D. position are welcome to apply. The prototype of a novel 3D nanoprinter will be used to fabricate stretchable  self-healing, skin-like materials and scaffolds with STEM cells for making artificial skin and organs. Enthusiastic applicants with a very strong CV should contact Dr. Norbert Radacsi. Please only apply if you already have funding that is sufficient for the UK (covers tuition fee & living expenses).

PhD position in the area of energy storage systems

Self-funded students from all over the world are welcome to apply for a Ph.D. position in the field of nanostructured batteries, fuel cells and supercapacitors. Funding needs to cover both tuition fee & living expense in the UK.

For Chinese applicants I can recommend the CSC/University of Edinburgh scholarship that can fully fund the Ph.D. program. It's not open for 2017/18 applications yet, but should be open within a few months. Please note that it's very competitive!

Post-doctoral positions in the area nanostructured materials

Self-funded post-doctoral applicants or are welcome to apply to the group. I am willing to help with applications for scholarships that can fully fund a post-doctoral training for at least 1 year. The proposal area should be anything related to nanostructured materials.

Visiting scientist positions in the area nanostructured materials

Self-funded assistant professors are welcome to apply to the group.


Entry requirements are detailed here. As for English requirements, IELTS total 6.5 with at least 6.0 in each component is needed; or TOEFL-iBT total 92 with at least 20 in each section.

Due to lots of applications, sorry that I might not be able to reply to all of you. If I am interested in your application, I will contact you directly although it might take a long time. I appreciate your kind understanding.
