You will be responsible for: performing numerical modeling of acoustofluidics in all-polymer devices; designing optimal polymer-based devices for acoustofluidic blood plasma separation; assisting with the fabrication and experimental tests of actual acoustofluidic devices
Candidates should have a two-year master's degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master's degree. We expect that you; implement and validate acoustofluidics models relevant for your research project; deliver modeling and experimental results of high quality; collaborate effectively with experimentalists in the research consortium; participate in team work with independent and original modeling contributions; are excited to teach and to learn from other group members; communicate your insights and results effectively both orally and in writing; work with an outstanding drive and enthusiasm
PhD scholarship in Modeling and Experiment on Polymer-based Chips for Acoustofluidics DTU Physics Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Friday 09 Aug 19 Apply for this job Apply no later than 13 September 2019 Apply for the job at DTU Physics by completing the following form. Apply online A 3-year PhD scholarship, starting October or November 2019, is available in the field of ultrasound acoustofluidics supervised by Prof. Henrik Bruus, www.staff.dtu.dk/bruus at the Department of Physics. We study the fundamental physics of fluids and solid mechanics under external forcing, such as ultrasound, at the micro- and nanometer scale, and we perform numerical simulations of selected systems in international collaborations with various experimental groups. Our main focus is basic research but we also encourage and support collaboration with industry partners. Our group typically has up to eight members including faculty members, postdocs, PhD students, and undergraduate students, see www.fysik.dtu.dk/microfluidics . The scholarship “ Modeling and experiment on polymer-based chips for acoustofluidics ” is part of the Innovation Fund Denmark IF-Eurostars-2019 research project “ Acoustofluidic blood plasma separation polymer chip for Point-of-Care diagnostics (ACOUPLAST) ” involving the industrial partners AcouSort AB (Lund, SE) and Ortofon A/S (Nakskov, DK) and academic partners at Lund University and DTU. ACOUPLAST aims to develop a polymer acoustofluidic chip for high-performing, fast and cost-effective blood plasma separation, to enable healthcare and veterinary Point-of-Care (PoC) diagnostics. One main task of the PhD scholarship is to implement our novel whole-system-resonance principle on microscale acoustofluidic systems, Moiseyenko and Bruus, Phys. Rev. Appl. 11 , 014014 (2019) 1-14 [ pdf ], for numerical studies and optimization of designs of efficient all-polymer acoustofluidic devices. We use continuum physics modeling to establish the governing equations, and we implement numerical models of the devices in Comsol Multiphysics. The other main task is to perform validation experiments in collaboration with our partners in Lund, and to assist with the fabrication and test of actual acoustofluidic devices. Responsibilities and tasks You will be responsible for performing numerical modeling of acoustofluidics in all-polymer devices, designing optimal polymer-based devices for acoustofluidic blood plasma separation, assisting with the fabrication and experimental tests of actual acoustofluidic devices Qualifications Candidates should have a two-year master's degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master's degree.
