PhD Scholarship in Organic Bioelectronics at KTH Royal Institute of Technology

KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden is inviting excellent candidates to apply for a PhD position in material sciences. The funds for this fellowship are available for two years. Applications should be sent before January 09, 2019.

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe's leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden's largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

Interfacing living cells with man-made electronics provides ways to stimulate and measure biological signals. Electrodes are currently used to develop bioelectronic devices for clinical settings, like pacemakers and electroencephalography. They are also a necessary tool to monitor and stimulate cells in vitro, like in patch clamp electrophysiology. In this project we aim to develop better electrode interfaces to neural cells in vitro using organic electronics. The project entails the fabrication and characterization of organic electronic devices using new organic materials and their application in contact with animal cells and human stem cell derived neural cells. We will develop new device configurations to create an intimate seamless interface between man-made electronic devices and biological electroactive systems. The experimental work will be conducted at KTH and Karolinska Institute in Stockholm. This project will be carried out within the In vitro neural systems group ( at KTH and Karolinska Institute and will engage several other group members both other doctoral students and postdocs. The project is conducted in close collaborations with leading national and international in the field in the field.

In order to succeed as an doctoral student at KTH you need to be goal oriented and persevering in your work.

The successful applicant is expected to hold a M.Sc. degree in engineering physics, biophysics, material science, or a corresponding degree from a major university. A specialization in organic electronics or bioelectronics is an asset.

Only those who are or have been admitted to third-cycle studies may be employed as a doctoral student. The term of the initial contract may not exceed one year and may thereafter be extended. Doctoral students may engage in teaching, research, and administration corresponding to a maximum of 20 % of a full-time position.

Apply for the position and admission through KTH’s recruitment system. It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure that the application is complete in accordance with the instructions in the advertisement.

Applications must be received at the last closing date at midnight, CET/CEST (Central European Time/entral European Summer Time).
