Natural Science Open PhD Position Available @ Basel University Switzerland

Natural Science Open PhD Position Available @ Basel University Switzerland: The University of Basel (German: Universität Basel) is located in Basel, Switzerland. Founded in 1460, it is Switzerland’s oldest university and is counted among the leading institutions of the country. The associated University Library of Basel is the largest and among the most important libraries in the whole of Switzerland. The University hosts the faculties of theology, law, medicine, humanities and social sciences, science, psychology, and business and economics, as well as numerous cross-disciplinary subjects and institutes, such as the Biozentrum for biomedical research and the Institute for European Global Studies. In 2016, the University boasted 12’852 students and 377 professors. International students accounted for 25 percent of the student body.

The goal of the interdisciplinary NCCR Molecular Systems Engineering (www.nccr-mse.ch) is to create a “molecular factory”, a system consisting of molecular modules and capable of producing a value-added product. One possible architecture are solid-state devices with integrated micro- and nanofluidic systems linking functionalized compartments. Such devices would enable the discovery and implementation of new synthetic routes, for example by fast, combinatorial screening of catalyst cascades without the need of intermediate purification. Silicon technology enables a scalable complexity within a single setup using mature and mass-fabrication compatible processes.

The project targets the development and implementation of an on-chip network of catalyst sites with reconfigurable interconnects. This enables systematic testing of multiple synthetic pathways for the production of value-added chemicals. It further enables biological processes to be mimicked, where – in contrast to traditional synthetic approaches – a common precursor is selectively converted into multiple products by different multi-catalyst cascades.
This joint PhD project between the University of Basel and IBM Research – Zurich is a multi-faceted
project involving the design, fabrication and characterization of micro/nanofluidic systems, development and testing of functionalization strategies as well as exploring multiple synthetic pathways. Embedded in the NCCR Molecular Systems Engineering (www.nccr-mse.ch), the project offers an interdisciplinary and international research environment with links to biology and medicine.

Qualification.

  • Applicants are expected to hold a master degree in a natural science or engineering field and have a strong interest in nanometer-scale science and engineering.
  • Practical clean room experience, good communication skills and a broader interest in biology or medicine are desirable.
