PhD Sensor technology (2x2 years)
(mandate WNI/2008/016-HO2)

Job description
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).
