1 PhD student position is open in the Department of Mechanical Engineering (MEK), Technical University of Denmark (DTU). The aims of the project are to investigate biophysical properties, surface and interface properties, and biotribological/rheological properties of mucin and mucus gels as a function of their origin, exposure to varying environment, and interaction with foreign materials. A broad range of mucin/mucus types, for example, those from pig internal organs, fishes and jellyfishes, human saliva, as well as commercial resources will be employed for the research. A specific attention is paid to understand the unique lubricity of mucins and mucus gels in correlation with their relevant biological and biophysical properties. Experiences and interests in carrying out a multidisciplinary project are strongly required. Ideal starting date is January 1, 2013 or as early as possible thereafter.
The project is conducted primarily in the Division of Materials and Surface Engineering (MTU), Department of Mechanical Engineering (MEK). Active collaboration with several other research groups at DTU is expected, including the Enzyme & Protein Chemistry (EPC) Group in the Department of Systems Biology, Danish Polymer Centre (DPC) in the Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering (KT), and the National Food Institute DTU. This project is funded by a Starting Grant from the European Research Council (ERC) and the Department of Mechanical Engineering, DTU.
The successful candidates should have:
M.Sc. in the field of materials science, chemistry, physics, biology, mechanical engineering or related subjects
Experience in surface science and/or tribology desirable, but not required
Experience and/or interests in carrying out interdisciplinary project
Ability to work independently, to plan and carry out complicated tasks·
Good communication skills in English, both written and spoken
Terms of employment
The scholarships for the PhD degree are subject to academic approval, and the candidates will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes of DTU.
