Aarhus Universitet (AU)

Ph.d. & forskning
Østjylland (Aarhus)

Applications are invited for a PhD fellowship/scholarship at Graduate School of Science and Technology, Aarhus University, Denmark, within the Engineering programme. The position is available from 1 August 2019 or later.

Title:
Printed electronics for new-age flexible devices for biomedical applications

Research area and project description:
The vision for the future of electronics encompasses devices that are lightweight, conformal, flexible, stretchable and low cost. Marriage of printing technology (also called 3D printing) with electronics opens up avenues to produce highly flexible, stretchable and room-temperature processed devices. The design freedom that comes with 3D printing can help to tailor features for end-users, and to develop next-generation free-form electronics.
This PhD project will focus on developing novel electronic inks for printing electronic components and circuits on unconventional/ flexible substrates to have new functionality. The research focus will be on quasi-2D and 3D printed electronics that will encompass components of multimaterial, interfacial and multifunction for biomedical applications. The project requires knowledge and experience in fabricating electronic circuits, material formulation, and relevant disciplines. The ideal candidate will enjoy practical hands-on work and be willing to acquire new skills with good attitude to work in team and also individually. The PhD student will have opportunities to work with both internal and external collaborators, and interact with global industries to showcase his/her talents to potential future employers.

The work will be carried out in Printed electronics lab under Shweta Agarwala. The focus of the research group is to fabricate functional electronics devices for futuristic applications on unconventional substrates namely flexible, stretchable and biocompatible. The application areas for the fabricated devices will be point-of-care diagnostics, home healthcare systems, bioelectronics, biomedical and wearables.

Qualifications and specific competences:
The candidate must have a Master’s degree or equivalent in electronics engineering, material science and engineering, applied physics or relevant engineering discipline.

  • Suitable candidates must possess a strong willingness for research exploration, independence, self-learning, creativity, teamwork as well as the willingness in the preparation of research proposals.
  • Excellent communication skills in English, both orally and literally, are required.
  • A scientific publication record will be a merit.
  • Good knowledge and experience in the following fields are favoured but not mandatory:
    • Electronic device fabrication and characterization, especially for flexible electronics and stretchable electronics
    • Inkjet printing and 3D printing, especially for electronic device fabrication.
    • Materials fabrication (2D materials, carbon nanotube, metal nanoparticles etc.)
    • Characterization (SEM, AFM, XRD etc.) and Electrochemical characterization

Place of employment and place of work:
The place of employment is Aarhus University, and the place of work will be in the Department of Engineering, Section of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Finlandsgade 22, 8200 Aarhus N, Denmark.

Contacts:
Applicants seeking further information are invited to contact:
Professor (Docent) Preben Kidmose (pki@eng.au.dk) (main supervisor)

Assistant Professor Shweta Agarwala (shweta@eng.au.dk) (co-supervisor)

Application procedures
Before you applyInformation and attachments:
Please be aware that you must have all relevant appendices, attachments, addresses for referees, etc. ready when you apply, as the entire application must be uploaded to the system in one go.

Documentation of language skills:
The English language requirement at GSST is comparable to an “English B level” in the Danish upper secondary school (“gymnasium”).

English language qualifications comparable to an “English B level” are documented by one of the following tests:

  • TOEFL test, minimum score: 560 (paper-based test) or 83 (internet-based test). The paper-based test must have a “total score”. From the August 2019 call, GSST will no longer accept the paper-based test.
    Aarhus University does not accept the TOEFL ITP test. Aarhus University’s TOEFL code is 8935. Ask the test centre to send your test results to Aarhus University, in order to enable verification of your test results.
  • IELTS (academic) test, minimum average score: 6.5 points
  • Cambridge English Language Assessment:
    Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency (CPE)
    Cambridge English: Certificate of Advanced English with grade A,B or C (CAE)
    Cambridge English: First Certificate with grade A (FCE)

When to take the test and how to upload the documentation:
The test result must not be more than two years old at the time of application.

The English language test should be taken before applying for admission and uploaded under “language skills documentation” in the online application form.

It is possible to apply for admission before you have taken the test. In this case documentation stating that you have signed up for a test (please state expected submission date) must be uploaded. If the test result is not part of the original application the test result is to be sent to sphd@psys.au.dk no later than one month after the application deadline.

The following applicants are exempted from documenting their English qualifications/taking a test:

  • Applicants with citizenship from the following countries: Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, the United States, or one of the Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway or Sweden).
  • Applicants with a Bachelor’s or Master’s programme completed in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, or the United States. In this case, please upload your Bachelor’s or Master’s diploma under the section ”Language skills documentation”.
  • Applicants with a Bachelor’s or Master’s programme completed at Aarhus University for which the requirement was English B level at the time of admission. In this case, please upload your Bachelor’s or Master’s diploma under the section” Language skills documentation”.

The programme committee may request further information or invite the applicant to attend an interview.
