Third-cycle subject: Physics - specialization: Materials and nanophysics
The Nano-silicon group within the Applied Physics department is looking for a doctoral student in bio-molecule sensing. This is part of a multidisciplinary project aiming at the simultaneous detection of protein, RNA and DNA in individual immune cells. The project involves one group from Karolinska Institute and two groups from Gene and Protein technology, respectively, at KTH.
The work will involve fabrication of micro/nano devices in our cleanroom in Kista using silicon process technology as well as using these devices for electrical sensing of different biomolecules using antibodies. This will also be complemented by optical, fluorophore-based single-molecule detection. The candidate is expected to participate in all of the aspects of multiple biomolecule detection at very low biomolecule concentrations, such as chip functionalization, spotting of antibodies, assay development, microfluidics, sensing technologies, development of electrical measurement techniques and programs, data evaluation etc.
The employment is four years. Should department duties/teaching be included in the employment up to a level of 20 percent, an extension can be granted up to a maximum of five years.
Supervision: Professor Jan Linnros.
