We are looking for a colleague, for example a student, for a period of 6 months, part time (2-3 days a week), to be part of dynamic teams, working on the development of in vitro systems based on centrifugal microfluidics.

The project is placed in DTU in the IDUN research group (https://idun.dtu.dk/about-idun), led by Prof. Anja Boisen at the Department of Health Technology.  IDUN is a large research group with over 40 members, with focus on development of micro and nanosensor sensors, detection systems and drug delivery approaches.

Research field
You will work with polymer fabrication, assembly, and CAD design. Automated flow-based assays are commonly used in miniaturized diagnostics systems and the fluidic systems fabricated by you will be used as diagnostic tools to either test antimicrobial agents on bacterial infections or to detect drug concentration for therapeutic drug monitoring purpose.

Responsibilities and tasks
You will be a part of an interdisciplinary (e.g., biologist, microbiologist, analytical chemists, microfluidic engineers software and hardware engineers) team, where your primary responsibility will be to fabricate and assemble fluidic systems.

Qualifications

  • Experience in working with polymer fabrication (e.g. micro milling, laser ablation, laser cutting, injection moulding) is a major advantage.
  • Self-motivation, interest in technology usage in life science, responsible conduct of experimental work, and good organizational skills are a requirement.
  • Knowledge in microfluidics is advantage.
  • Previous work experience in smaller research project is an additional plus.

We offer
DTU is a leading technical university globally recognized for the excellence of its research, education, innovation and scientific advice. We offer a rewarding and challenging job in an international environment. We strive for academic excellence in an environment characterized by collegial respect and academic freedom tempered by responsibility.

Salary and terms of employment
The appointment will be based on the OAO-S Joint Agreement and the organization agreement for Office Clerks, Laboratory Technicians and IT staff (HK/stat). The allowance will be agreed upon with the relevant union.

The period of employment is 6 months for 12 hours a week.
