Dear all

We have a 4 year PhD Studentship available at UCL. This project aims to develop a lung test-object deformable phantom with tissue mimicking materials to validate recently developed methods for improved quantification of diseased lung tissue with Positron Emission Tomography and Computed Tomography (PET/CT), and assess the accuracy and reproducibility of lung PET imaging in a multi-centre clinical setting. This work is part of an international 'PET in lung disease collaboration initiative'.

The PhD studentship is EPSRC Industrial CASE funded with industrial support from National Physical Laboratory in the UK and additional input from GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). The funding covers an annual stipend (at least £17,280) and tuition fees at the rate for UK/EU nationals for 4 years.

The student will be part of the UCL EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Intelligent, Integrated Imaging In Healthcare<https://www.ucl.ac.uk/healthcare-engineering/training/study/epsrc-centre-doctoral-training-intelligent-integrated-imaging-healthcare-i4health> (i4health).

More information on this studentship including eligibility (EPSRC rules<https://epsrc.ukri.org/skills/students/help/eligibility/> apply) and contact details is available at https://www.ucl.ac.uk/nuclear-medicine/vacancies

Application closing date: 23rd of April 2019, but check the website for up-to-date information.

Note that i4health<https://www.ucl.ac.uk/healthcare-engineering/training/study/epsrc-centre-doctoral-training-intelligent-integrated-imaging-healthcare-i4health> has many other exciting opportunities as well. Please check our website regarding current application deadlines.

Apologies for cross-posting.
