PhD Scholarship in Nanoscale 3D Printing for Artificial Vision

Applications are invited for a PhD position in mechanical engineering to join Technical University of Denmark, Denmark. The deadline to apply is June 30, 2019.

TheDepartment of Mechanical Engineering, Section of Manufacturing Engineeringinvites applications for a 3-year PhD position.

The Section for Manufacturing Engineering performs theoretical, numerical, and experimental research in the field of manufacturing engineering. It covers a wide range of manufacturing processes and modelling approaches, metrology at all scales, micro/nano manufacturing, and additive manufacturing. The research is based on a multidisciplinary use of process technology, materials science, solid and fluid mechanics as well as thermodynamics and heat transfer in the analysis, modelling, and development of manufacturing processes.

In artificial vision, electrical stimulation of the vision associated nervous system is the default method. The objective of this project is to construct a microimplant for vision cortex stimulation. In collaboration with , we will make the Copenhagen Implant at DTU, and it will be tested at Harvard Medical School. The enabling technology is a newly invented , which is a nanoscale additive manufacturing or 3D printing method. In Europe, this method is exclusive to the Tech. Univ. of Denmark. In the long term, we believe that the Copenhagen Implant can be used for artificial vision for patients that must be stimulated at the vision cortex level. We also believe that our technology can be used for other neurological illness that benefit from local electromagnetic stimulation. Project partners are at Peking University in China. The project is generously supported by the , and it is a part of the To take project ownership and design, fabricate, and test the Copenhagen implant, which includes the below Candidates may apply prior to obtaining their master’s degree but cannot begin before having received it.

All interested candidates irrespective of age, gender,race, disability, religion or ethnic background are encouraged to apply.

DTU Mechanical Engineering covers the fundamental engineering disciplines within Solid mechanics, Fluid mechanics, Coastal and Maritime Engineering, Energy systems and energy conversion, Materials and Surface Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, Engineering design and Product development. The department has a scientific staff of about 140 persons, 100 PhD students and a technical/administrative support staff of about 80 persons. DTU is a technical university providing internationally leading research, education, innovation and scientific advice. Our staff of 6,000 advance science and technology to create innovative solutions that meet the demands of society, and our 11,200 students are being educated to address the technological challenges of the future. DTU is an independent university collaborating globally with business, industry, government and public agencies.
