The School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences, in partnership with the Oral Health Services Research Centre (OHSRC) in UCC is currently recruiting a MSC researcher to carry out research funded by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), focused on the impact of mercury-free dental restorative materials on the environment.
The Minimata Convention on Mercury (UNEP, 2013) is a global treaty, with the objective to protect human health and the environment from anthropogenic emissions and releases of mercury and mercury compounds (UNEP, 2013). The convention became legally binding for all its parties from 16 August 2017, and seeks to reduce the amount of mercury in use.
Although a relatively small contributor to overall global mercury use, dentistry has traditionally used mercury for a number of dental practices that can lead to mercury release into the environment, generally through waste water from dental clinics where amalgam (a liquid mercury and metal alloy mixture) fillings are used. The adoption of the Minimata convention means that non-mercury based dental materials will see greater use in future, but the potential environmental impacts of any waste streams arising from these alternatives are currently largely unknown, and in fact may have potential impacts on the environment in their own right. This studentship will focus on characterizing the potential environmental impact of the waste stream emissions arising from novel non-mercury based materials currently in use, particularly any particulate matter that arises and the efficiency of existing devices and practices to ‘capture’ mercury-free dental materials.

Research Masters/ PhD Studentship
Funded Studentship in Electromagnetic Systems for Medical Applications
University College Cork and Tyndall National Institute
ABOUT THIS PROJECT
This project will involve the design and development of novel magnetic field sensing and actuation solutions for medical applications. The project is a key enabler to replace large surgical incisions by smaller needle and natural orifice access to surgical targets. Magnetic fields may provide the key to this challenge and this project seeks to use electromagnetic fields to sense and position instruments and organs during minimally invasive and robotic surgery. The project will demonstrate novel electromagnetic systems incorporating miniaturised inductive sensing, advanced electromagnetic circuit control algorithms, and electro-permanent magnetic coupling. Electromagnetic sensing is the gold standard in the absence of line of sight and is widely used with discrete inductive sensing. UCC School of Engineering and Tyndall National Institute has a strong track record in novel electromagnetic tracking technology (http://openemt.org ) and has developed the first open-source, cross-platform electromagnetic tracking system, Anser EMT. Tyndall National Institute is a global leader in integrated magnetics technology (https://www.tyndall.ie/integrated-magnetics )

MASTERS STUDENTSHIP IN RENEWABLE GAS
Project Title: Development of policies for widespread use of CNG and biomethane feed-in
Project Description: This work is part of the EU-funded Causeway project to construct a compressed natural gas (CNG)-fuelled transportation corridor along Ireland’s motorway network, and to enable use of biomethane for transportation. It will develop policy recommendations to enable and encourage high penetrations of CNG-fuelled transportation, and distributed biomethane feed-in to the gas grid. The objectives are to: (1) review work previously completed in these fields by GNI and other gas grid operators, (2) review ongoing and future works in these fields by GNI and other gas grid operators, and (3) provide an overview of how alternatives from other markets can be deployed by GNI in Ireland. The researcher will spend an average of 2 days per week at the GNI Gas Works Road site in Cork.
Principal Investigator: PI: Prof Jerry Murphy (UCC), Co-PI: Dr Rory Monaghan (NUI Galway)
Project Manager (Industry Party): Rodger O’Connor, Gas Networks Ireland
Milestones and Deliverables Definitions:
- D1: CNG connections policy
- D2: Biomethane connections policy
- D3: CNG supply licence
- D4: CNG siteworks charges
- D5: Biomethane tariff
- D6: Journal paper publication

M.Eng Scholarship in IoT Wearable Sensor design
Applications are invited for a fully funded 18-months MEng (master’s by research) position at the Internet of Things lab at University College Dublin, Ireland. Scholarships cover tuition fees (of €13660/year) and a tax-free stipend of €18,000 per year.
Wearable health monitoring sensors are expected to be deployed ubiquitously in the near future to combat rising healthcare risks and costs. This project aims to develop modular low power IoT wearable sensors for healthcare monitoring. In the sensor, physiological data is acquired by a biomedical acquisition frontend and transmitted in real-time using a Bluetooth LE chip. An integrated ARM MCU will be used for data processing. The selected candidate will work on developing embedded hardware and software for state of the art IoT wearable sensors. The candidate will research on optimal IoT sensor and software architectures, form factors, embedded signal processing techniques for power reduction etc.
The project will involve collaboration with multi-disciplinary researchers who are working on IoT Machine learning, Biomedical signal analysis, clinicians etc. The position also provides the opportunity to gain valuable experience in design and development of healthcare systems. The successful candidate will get opportunities for presenting their work in international conferences and workshops, and publication of the research in high impact journals.
The project will be supervised by Dr. John, Dr. Barry. Applications consisting of a cover letter, Transcripts, contact details of 3 referees, and curriculum vitae should be sent to [email protected]
