Industrial PhD scholarship in Microchip Inlets for Mass Spectrometry (Nanofabrication/Chemical/ Fluid Mechanics Engineering) at the DTU Physics
An Industrial PhD student position (3 years) is available at Spectro Inlets in collaboration with DTU Nanolab, DTU Physics, Technical University of Denmark.
Fabrication of the microchip inlets is carried out at the DTU Nanolab cleanroom facilities, which boast state-of-the-art equipment, including methods for photolithography, reactive ion etching, and electron microscopy. The equipment usage is supported by trained process specialists.
Duration: For this position, we are recruiting a PhD Student in Micro-Nanofabrication/Chemical/ Fluid Mechanics Engineering for a period of 36 months with a start date between 1 September 2020 and 31 January 2021.
Key Responsibilities & tasks
You will produce and characterize the next generation of microchip inlet systems for mass spectrometry.
Research tasks will include:
- Design and fabrication of a micro-jet capillary for precise injection of molecules into a vacuum chamber containing a mass spectrometer
- Development of a microchip allowing for both liquid and gas transport, allowing for more versatile electrochemical measurements
- Develop a scalable surface treatment that can withstand industrial liquid environments, including e.g. organic solvents used in batteries, as well as heterogeneous liquids
- Development of an all-silicon microchip microfabrication recipe
- Candidates should have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree.Knowledge and skills the following fields are necessary to successfully complete the project:
- Micro- and nanofabrication
- Fluid mechanics
- Chemical engineering
