The PhD student will conduct scientific research within the framework of
development of sensor platforms for electronic characterisation of DNA
mutations and related problems. More specifically, sensor arrays will be
developed based on impedimetric and isocap-based sensor concepts. An
important issue is the analysis of electric field and band structure
effects at the interface between aqueous phases, molecular layers and
semiconductor surfaces. Furthermore, attention will be focussed on the
optimisation of the performance of the sensor arrays.
Profile and diploma
Master degree (or equivalent) in either physics, applied sciences,
electronics, physical chemistry, nano- and microtechnology or materials
science. Students who graduate this year can also apply.
The appointment has a duration of 2x2 years (assessment after 2 years).
