PhD Studentship (full time, 3 years)

Toxicological Studies of Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals in Dental Patients
Peninsula College Of Medicine And Dentistry Graduate School

This studentship aims to investigate the baseline and post-treatment urine and saliva concentrations of Bisphenol A and phthalate plasticisers in paediatric and adult patient populations entering Peninsula Dental School (PDS) Clinics.

The post will involve chromatographic (LC-MS/MS) analysis of biological samples and potentially, advanced mathematical modelling of data obtained. We are therefore looking for someone with a science background (BDS, BMBS, BSc Biomedical Sciences/Biology/Pharmacology/Chemistry or similar) with an aptitude for mathematics.
