2 Phd positions are available at in the DTU Nanotech department, Technical university of Denmark.
Position 1: PhD scholarship in Nanomechanical Sensors
Responsibilities and tasks
The Nanoprobes group at DTU Nanotech seeking for a PhD student for three years to work in a project focusing on development of nanomechanical sensors (resonators) and applying these for the study of molecular actions and cellular processes related to drug delivery.
The main task of the project is the development and use of resonator structures for photothermal spectroscopy. String and membrane like resonators with antenna structures will be fabricated. Additionally, a dedicated experimental set-up needs to be developed and applied in primarily basic biological research.
- Hold a master’s degree (or equivalent) in physics, X systems, nanotechnology, mechanical or material engineering.
- previous work experience regarding nanosensors and/or microfabrication will be beneficial.
- Experience within some the following areas:
- Micro- and nanomechanical resonators
- UV, IR or Raman spectroscopy
- SERS, SEIRA effects, or familiar with plasmonics
- Micro- and nanofabrication techniques
