Single-molecule enzyme dynamics and new biosensing devices
A Ph.D. fellowship is open at the Department of Chemistry
As part of a new interdisciplinary research programme supported jointly by the Danish Research Council for Technology and Production Sciences and DTU, â€œSingle-molecule enzyme dynamics and new biosensing devicesâ€, a Ph.D. fellowship is open.The position is available for period of 3 years.
The Ph.D. programme is anchored in the Group of Bioinorganic Chemistry of Department of Chemistry at DTU. The programme involves scientific research in adsorption and electron transport of redox metalloenzymes and other biological molecules on metallic surfaces, with new nanoscale and single-molecule aspects in focus. Modern physical electrochemistry, electrochemical scanning tunnelling and atomic force microscopy, as well as integration of metalloproteins with metallic nanoparticle and semiconductor nanotube research will be focus objectives and technology in a new interdisciplinary effort. Such work is important for the understanding of fundamental biological charge transport and electronic properties of the nanoparticles and nanotubes, and for the development of next generation ultra-sensitive biosensors and other biologically interesting devices. Our Ph.D. and other students work in a thriving and enthusiastic scientific environment with wide national and international networks. In addition, DTU offers a broad range of supporting courses in a matured graduate school programme.
Candidates should hold a masterâ€™s degree in physics, chemistry or biology and have a strong interest in endeavouring into an exciting new interdisciplinary nanotechnology programme. They will work together or communicate with partners at other universities in Denmark and abroad as well as with industry.
Irrespective of age, gender and religious, ethnic and other background, interested candidates are encouraged to submit an application with CV and other relevant information. Applications should be sent to Jette Nilsson, Department of Chemistry, Building 207, DTU, DK-2800 Lyngby by 3 December, 2007 at 12.00.
