- 15 January 2017
The Technical University of Denmark is offering PhD scholarship in sensors on a disc. The main task of the project is the development of centrifugal platforms with integrated sample pre-treatment steps and sensing. Citizens of all nationalities are eligible to apply.
The successful candidate will play a role in the sensor section of the Nanoprobes group, interacting with several members working in different disciplines, such as microfabrication, plasmonics, electrochemistry, pharmacology and polymer science.
The Technical University of Denmark often simply referred to as DTU, is a university in Kongens Lyngby, just north of Copenhagen, Denmark. It was founded in 1829 at the initiative of Hans Christian Ørsted as Denmark’s first polytechnic and is today ranked among Europe’s leading engineering institutions.
The candidate should have a very good command over the English language.
The ideal candidate holds a master’s degree (or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to master’s degree) physics, nanotechnology, systems, chemical, mechanical or material engineering. A master’s project or previous work experience regarding nanosensors and/or microfabrication will be beneficial. It is an advantage to have knowledge or experience within some the following areas:
- Centrifugal microfluidics
- Polymer fabrication
- SERS effects, or familiar with plasmonics
- Sensor development and application
- Assay development
The TOEFL® test is a popular option for students to meet the English-language requirements for scholarships.
The salary and appointment terms are consistent with the current rules for PhD degree students. The period of employment is 3 years.
