PhD (2x) e2LEAD 2023-2027 e2LEAD will bring superior computing resources closer to the in-situ data of the vehicle, to achieve real-time / safety for deterministic and highly reliable automation and optimized process control, to have better data security / privacy through reducing the attack surface, to gain energy efficiency and reduction in the environmental footprint. Work in the fields of modular system architecture and packaging strategies including thermal management solutions. We will assess and optimize the thermo‚Äźelectromechanical reliability based on experimental tests and numerical simulations. TUDelft GuoQi Zhang
Post-doc NOCI-2 2023-2027 Within the Netherlands Organ-on-Chip Initiative (NOCI), we are looking for enthusiastic & motivated researchers to develop innovative wafer-scale microfabrication technologies for advanced silicon- and biodegradable technology-based Organs-on-Chip (OoC). These systems are microfluidic cell culture devices that recapitulate in vivo-like microenvironments to support the expression of properties and functions of human tissues and organs, with the objective to enhance drugs pre-clinical screening. This position will focus in particular on three-dimensional microelectrode array for tissue monitoring. TUDelft Max Mastrangeli and Clementine Boutry

Additional information

In The Netherlands, almost all PhD positions are linked to funded research projects. This has several implications:
  • PhD students are employed: they receive a salary rather than a grant. Most projects have a duration of 4 years.
  • Positions become available once a project is funded. This can happen at any time during the year.
  • It typically takes 6 to 9 months for a project proposal to receive funding. In this period, a position may be anticipated but the outcome remains insecure. Once a project is funded, the open position needs to be filled as soon as possible.

If you are interested in our research, it merits to inquire whether openings will be available. We collect resumes of prospective PhD students throughout the year, for each of our research tracks.

General requirements

We make our selection based on the following general requirements:
  • Formal requirements regarding prior education: you should have earned an MSc degree at a recognized institute for higher education.
  • Background: this depends on the specific project.
  • Excellence: your Grade-Point-Average should be above 8 (10). Also your MSc thesis should have received a grade above 8 (10).
  • English: you should be able to communicate well in english (written and oral). Provide TOEFL/IELTS scores if available.
  • Originality: your MSc thesis or later work (publications) should reflect some original ideas. Critical and independent thinking is very important.
  • Team player: you should be able to work well in a team of other project members.
Your resume should contain contact information of prior advisors/supervisors who can provide feedback.
