Ultrasound waves can penetrate centimeters deep into tissues but do not provide contrast at the cellular level. The nascent field of biomolecular ultrasound aims at interfacing ultrasound waves with cellular processes deep inside living organisms.
Recently introduced acoustic biomolecules are enabling imaging of cellular processes such as gene expression. In addition, it was shown that molecular engineering of acoustic biomolecules could tune their ultrasound scattering response.
The candidate will develop biomolecular ultrasound sensors based on acoustic biomolecules for molecular ultrasound imaging applications. Ultrasound imaging will rely on dedicated ultrasound imaging sequences developed in the lab.
The candidate will be a member of the Imaging Physics department at TU Delft, and will collaborate strongly with the Bionanoscience Department of TU Delft as well as the Neuroscience department of Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam.
We are looking for highly talented and motivated candidates with a ‘drive’ for applied research. The candidate should have an MSc degree in life science and technology, Nanobiotechnology, Protein Engineering, Molecular engineering or genetic engineering. He or she must have an affinity for optical microscopy or ultrasound imaging.
Good communication skills in English are required.
TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount for health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged. An International Children’s Centre offers childcare and an international primary school. Dual Career Services offers support to accompanying partners. Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.
As a PhD candidate you will be enrolled in the TU Delft Graduate School. TU Delft Graduate School provides an inspiring research environment; an excellent team of supervisors, academic staff and a mentor; and a Doctoral Education Programme aimed at developing your transferable, discipline-related and research skills.
