The DTU Nanolab at at Technical University of Denmark is looking for a talented PhD candidate to join the project ‘Pyrolytic Hierarchical Organic Electrodes for sustaiNable Electrochemical Energy Systems (PHOENEEX)’. The project is funded by a European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator Grant. The overall vision of PHOENEEX is to develop a miniaturised biobattery. In this context, you will work in close collaboration with several researchers in an interdisciplinary team.

Responsibilities and tasks
  • The main contribution of the PhD candidate will be the design, fabrication and evaluation of a miniaturized MSC. First, biofilm formation on carbon electrodes will be investigated and eventually the surface chemistry has to be optimized.
  • Next, a systematic investigation of the influence of geometry and material properties of carbon microelectrodes on the electron transfer and the energy harvesting from photosynthetic microorganisms such as cyanobacteria will be conducted.
  • The optimization of light transfer to the bacterial biofilms will be investigated.
  • The work will be conducted in close collaboration with Cambridge University.


  • Candidates should have a master’s degree in Bioengineering, Biomedical Engineering, Analytical Chemistry, Material Science, Microengineering or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to the master’s degree in engineering.
  • Candidate is expected to have the interest to explore new bio-applications of carbon-based materials since the project is very interdisciplinary.


Apply online (as one PDF file) containing all materials to be given consideration:

  • A letter motivating the application (cover letter)
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Grade transcripts and BSc/MSc diploma
  • Candidates may apply prior to obtaining their master’s degree, but cannot begin before having received it.
