PhD Scholarship in Additive Manufacturing/bioprocess Industry at KTH Royal Institute of Technology

KTH Royal Institute of Technology is offering PhD position in life sciences. The initial contract for this position is 5 years. Potential candidates should apply before April 17, 2020.

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.

Additive manufacturing enables designs that were previously not possible to manufacture. In order to increase the implementation of additively manufactured products, more innovation and development is required. This project is a unique collaboration between GE Healthcare and KTH, within the framework of Addlife (see below). It aims to develop methods to improve post-processing (finishing), in complex internal channels on selected chemical-resistant polymers.

AddLife is a VINNOVA Competence Centre that gathers more than 20 partners to support competence development in Additive Manufacturing for the Life Sciences. The centre is funded by academia, industry and VINNOVA, with a total budget of approx. 100 MSEK for 5 years.

Supervision: The doctoral student will be supervised by Anna Wistrand. The PhD student will perform work at both KTH and GE Healthcare.

Basic knowledge of polymer technology, polymer chemistry and polymer physics is advantageous, merit is also experience of additive manufacturing with powder-based polymers (polymers scholarships) (SLS) and development of products for a regulated environment.

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

After the qualification requirements, great emphasis will be placed on personal qualities and personal suitability.

Only those admitted to postgraduate education may be employed as a doctoral student. The total length of employment may not be longer than what corresponds to full-time doctoral education in four years ‘ time. An employed doctoral student can, to a limited extent (maximum 20%), perform certain tasks within their role, e.g. training and administration. A new position as a doctoral student is for a maximum of one year, and then the employment may be renewed for a maximum of two years at a time.

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/Central European Summer Time).
