PhD Scholarship Theory Modeling and Design of All-polymer Acoustofluidic Chips

Applicants are invited to apply for a PhD scholarship in polymers at Technical University of Denmark. The deadline for applying is February 14, 2019.

A 3-year PhD scholarship, starting between March and June 2019, is available in the Department of Physics in the field of theoretical acoustofluidics supervised by Prof. Henrik Bruus.

We study the fundamental physics of fluids and solid mechanics under external forcing, such as ultrasound, at the micro- and nanometer scale, and we perform numerical simulations of selected systems often in international collaborations with various experimental groups. Our main focus is basic research but we also encourage and support collaboration with industry partners. Our group typically has up to eight members including faculty members, postdocs, PhD students, and undergraduate students, see

The scholarship are part of the research project “Theory, modeling, and design of all-polymer acoustofluidic chips” funded by Independent Research Fund Denmark (DFF-FTP) and in collaboration with the Swedish company AcouSort ( . The main research is to study theoretically the fundamental physical implications of applying our novel whole-system-resonance principle on microscale acoustofluidic systems, , and to explore its potential for designing efficient all-polymer acoustofluidic devices. We use continuum physics modeling to establish the governing equations, and we implement numerical models of the devices in Comsol Multiphysics.
