10 PhD fellowships are available within BIOINTERFACE. BIOINTERFACE is a highly interdisciplinary doctoral training program, which aims at exploring the interface between bioorganic and inorganic systems towards applications in bio-nanotechnology. Short descriptions of the 10 PhD projects are available at the BIOINTERFACE.
PhD positions will be starting between October 1st 2016 and March 31st 2017, in the fields of chemical synthesis, experimental (bio-) engineering/ physics as well as biomechanics, and theory/simulation. The positions are equivalent to a part-time university assistant (25 hours) position (minimum salary is EUR 1.685,30- pre-tax, 14x per year).
The salary can be raised according to previous research experience in the field. BIOINTERFACE provides highly interdisciplinary research projects and a cutting- edge training program including monthly seminars, lab rotation, retreats, a stay abroad, and – if applicable – industrial cooperation.
A Diploma/Masters/Magister university degree in chemistry, (bio-)physics, biology, electrical engineering, civil engineering, mathematics, process engineering, biomedical engineering, materials science, mechanical engineering, or a related discipline is a prerequisite for becoming a BIOINTERFACE PhD student. Additional knowledge related to the specific projects is desirable.
