PhD position - microfluidic chips for clinical diagnostics & analytical chemistry (Germany)

PhD studentships
Science or Engineering (Physics, Chemistry, Biotechnology, Mechatronics)

Using nanotechnology, biotechnology or microfluidics, we intend to
develop novel measurement techniques and instrumentation for clinical
diagnostics or analytical chemistry.

Current research topics include

1.      PCR (polymerase chain reaction) in droplets on a microchip, to
 identify micro organisms via DNA assay.
2.      To develop concepts and molecular biology measuring techniques
 for quantitative biodiversity. Possible sample sources include soil,
 grass, leaves, insects or surface water.
3.      Microfluidic chip for  mass spectrometric identification and
quantification of carbohydrates. Application: characterization of
biological cells.
 ...additional topics see

Applicants are expected to have a degree in science or engineering, to
 be ambitious in experimental research and to enjoy  working in an
interdisciplinary  research team.

Remineration will be according to local university standards.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
