PhD position: Surfaces for biosensing with single-molecule resolution (V34.2929) at the The group Molecular Biosensing for Medical Diagnostics at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e)
Reference number: V34.2929
The position is in the area of molecular biosensing with single-molecule resolution.
The Project involves
- The engineering of molecular constructs for sensing applications (using protein, nucleic-acid, and protein-DNA technologies),
- Methods to biofunctionalize nanoparticles,
- Development of novel single-molecule measurement methods, optical microscopies, particle characterization techniques, plasmonic effects, particle actuation principles, signal processing, and simulations.
- The research leads to novel methods for molecular biosensing, insights into protein function within complex and crowded environments, and novel routes into point-of-care and patient monitoring applications.
The PhD position is part of a collaboration between TU/e, Wageningen University & Research Centre (WUR), and six companies: Philips, Future Diagnostics, HyTest, Scienion, Stratec, and Synaffix. The PhD project at TU/e focuses on the development, characterization and understanding of surfaces for biosensing with single-molecule resolution.
- An MSc program or who already have an MSc degree, in Chemistry, Physics, Biomedical Engineering, or Nanotechnology.
- An interest in Physical Chemistry or Biophysics is required. Experience in advanced microscopies or single-molecule methods is a plus.
Conditions of employment
- A challenging job at a dynamic and ambitious University and in an enthusiastic team.
- An appointment (1 fte) as a PhD-student for four years, starting date: as soon as possible.
- Gross monthly salaries are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement of the Dutch Universities (CAO NU), increasing from
€ 2191 per month initially, to € 2801 in the fourth year.
- An attractive package of fringe benefits, including excellent work facilities, end of the year allowance and sports facilities.
