We are looking for a PhD student with a background in physical chemistry, or a related subject, to build on our understanding of the delivery of drugs by self-assembled polymeric nanoparticles. With exquisite control over particle morphology and surface chemistry, through well controlled polymerization and self-assembly of block co-polymers, it is possible to tailor the delivery of drugs to cells. Small angle scattering has proven an indispensable tool in our understanding of structure of these nanoparticles and how they make drugs available to cells. The student will be enrolled, and largely based, at the University of New South Wales in Sydney Australia, within the group of Professor Martina Stenzel. The project is highly international and will also involve time in Germany. The project is a collaboration with Dr Christopher Garvey at the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum & the Technische Universität München in Garching Germany and will involve the use of small angle scattering facilities both in Germany and in Australia.
