For Engineering & Technology fields

The University of Leuven invites applications for the PhD on the development of new highly sensitive sensors. In a first PhD project, you will optimise the properties of the newly discovered material from the basic material properties to the desired sensor specifications. In a second PhD project, you will design new generation sensors based on the new materials. The sensors will be several orders of magnitude more sensitive than the state of the art or will be much smaller allowing a higher integration density. Candidates should be young, highly motivated researchers with a master in physics, material science or engineering who has excelled in his/her studies and who is a team-player with a critical mind. You can work accurately, independently and are willing to learn new techniques. Prior experience in the field of the above-mentioned techniques would be an advantage. You would be eligible to apply for a personal PhD grant (e.g. FWO fellowship). The PhD contract will be for one year and renewable on a year-by-year basis (depending on the results of the intermediate evaluations), up to a total of four years. The starting date will be ideally in November 2018. Detailed information about the position is available at https://www.kuleuven.be/personeel/jobsite/jobs/54849056
