Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position developing and testing organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) for antimicrobial photodynamic therapy (PDT). OLEDs are very attractive light sources for medical applications because they are thin and can be flexible. We have previously shown that they are effective for PDT of many skin cancers. In this project you will develop high performance OLEDs, and investigate their use for killing bacteria - an emerging new application that relates to the serious problem of antibiotic resistance and builds on our pioneering work with skin cancer.

We are seeking a researcher with expertise and experience of making and testing OLEDs, and an interest in working with collaborators to develop their applications in medicine. An interest in translating research to practical use would also be helpful. A PhD in a physical science is required.

Start Date: 3 January 2020
End Date: 12 months after start date
