PhD in Micro- and Nanofluidics for DNA Applications
We are seeking to fill one Ph.D. position in the optofluidics group at DTU-Nanotech, Technical University of Denmark (DTU).
The basic aim is to develop a micro- and nanofludidic platform for
single cell genomics. In this project we will focus on micro and
nanofluidic devices that can be fabricated by injection moulding and can
perform single cell and single molecule DNA analysis.
Please be aware that the employment of a candidate in this position will be dependent on granting of sufficient financing.
The Ph.D. will be associated with the Optofluidics group at the Department of Micro and Nanotechnology (http://www.nanotech.dtu.dk/optofluidics)
and will engage in an EU collaborative project involving several
partners from industry and academia. The PhD project involves the
fabrication of devices and the experimental work with relevant samples.
background (MSc. or comparable qualification) in technical physics, or
materials science is a prerequisite for the employment. A particular
interest in experimental work, and previous experience with micro and
nanofluidics represents an advantage.
