A number of PhD scholarships are available at the Department of Micro- and Nanotechnology, DTU Nanotech, starting in the winter/spring of 2012. The subject of the PhD project must be within one of the main research areas of the department:
- Cleanroom based micro- and nanofabrication
- Polymer micro- and nanoengineering
- Synthesis and self assembly of nanostructures
- Miniaturised sensor technology
- Micro- and nanobased energy and environmental technology
- Lab-on-a-chip technology
- Diagnostics and drug delivery
- Theory of micro- and nanosystems
Candidates should have (or soon obtain) a master’s degree in engineering or a similar degree with an equivalent academic level. Candidates may apply prior to obtaining their master’s degree, but cannot begin the PhD education before having received the grade.
To apply for these scholarships candidates must obtain an agreement with a supervisor at DTU Nanotech concerning a specific project. To be considered for a scholarship, candidates must enclose endorsement from a supervisor and a project description. See under “Application”.
If you are not already in dialogue with a supervisor at DTU Nanotech, you have to complete a form. Supervisors may check the submissions for qualified candidates within their field of research. Please note that filling out the form is no guarantee that you will be contacted.
Approval and Enrolment
