PhD position on Development of microfluidics based new photonic biosensors per el EMAS Research Group

Micro-fluidics is the science of designing, manufacturing and using devices and processes that deal with volumes of fluids on the order of nL, having dimensions ranging from mm to a few micrometers. In order to assess the devices prepared, techniques such as softlitography, electronic microscopy, confocal microscopy, fluid dynamics and optical sensing will be used to confirm the efficient operation of the device. The proposed research project aims at the study and the final development of a microfluidic device for the efficient on-chip integration of probes for optically sensing physical parameter.
A Bachelor and M.Sc. degree in related sciences.
A Bachelor average mark ≥ 3
Good knowledge of the English language is required.
Duration: maximum of 36 moths.
Beginning: 1 September 2014.
Salary: the gross monthly salary for the PhD position ranges from € 1.100,- gross per month in the first year increasing every year up to € 1.300,- gross per month in the two last years.
To apply for this fellowship you have to send to emas@urv.cat the following documentation:
- detailed CV;
- bachelor/master degree certificates;
- bachelor/master marks certificate (only those certificates with a average mark ≥ 3 will be considered).
The average mark is calculated dividing the total number of points by the total number of credits. The number of point is calculated using the Spanish equivalence (grade on a scale of 10): 5-7/10 = 1 point; 7-8.5/10 = 2 points; 8.5-9.9/10 = 3 points; 10/10 = 4 points. You can ask for the equivalence mark table for your country at: emas@urv.cat
Deadline: 31/05/2014
