PhD Scholarship at University of Ghent

University of Ghent, Belgium is inviting excellent students to apply for a PhD position. The deadline to apply is October 01, 2019.

The Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) is the National Metrology Institute of the Federal Republic of Germany with scientific and technical service tasks. It furthers progress and reliability in metrology for society, the economy and science. In Department 8.2 “Biosignals” of Division 8, we are looking for a candidate for a doctor's degree specialised in physics, medical engineering, physical engineering or a comparable subject to join us as soon as possible. This position is available on the basis of a 3-year fixed-term contract. The remuneration will be paid in accordance with remuneration group 13 TVD Bund (85 %). You will be employed at our Berlin site. The Working Group 8.23 “Metrology for Magnetic Nanoparticles”, develops and validates measurement procedures for characterizing magnetic nanoparticles for biomedical applications. Within a project funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) the potential of magnetic noise magnetometry for the characterization of magnetic nanoparticles shall be explored. The project will be carried out jointly with Ghent University (Belgium), where the possibility to obtain a PhD will be given. The PhD project aims to systematically investigate the magnetic noise of different magnetic nanoparticles with highly sensitive, superconducting magnetic field sensors (SQUIDs). Analysis procedures need to be developed allowing the quantitative assessment of the thermal noise magnetometry in relation to other existing methods for nanoparticle characterization. Additionally, the capability of alternative detection techniques for thermal noise magnetometry shall be assessed.

Please use the online application form (

Please apply before 1 October 2019. It is possible that the vacancy is closed earlier if a suitable candidate has been selected.
