Job Description

These multidisciplinary PhD-research projects are focused on developing silicon MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) based 3D ultrasound transducers for medical ultrasound using cleanroom based micro-fabrication techniques. In the project a wide range of different processing techniques will be used, and new methods developed.
So, if you are looking for a career in development and fabrication of microdevices with cutting edge cleanroom facilities and medical ultrasound this project could be a perfect match for you.
Responsibilities and qualifications
Your main responsibilities:

  • Design CMUT transducers.
  • Develop process flows.
  • Fabricate these in the DTU Nanolab cleanroom.
  • Characterize the transducers both electrically and acoustically.
  • Build experimental setups.
  • Publish your results in scientific journals.

We are looking for a colleague who likes to create results via positive and efficient teamwork. As part of this, you must thrive in a multi-disciplinary, multi-cultural and highly interactive environment where knowledge sharing, and collaboration are keys to succeed. 
Additionally, your CV comprises:

  • Hands on experience in cleanroom work.
  • Hands on experience in setting up and performing experiments on CMUTs.
  • Proven experience in transducer design.
  • Strong oral and written skills in English – our communication language is English.
  • Flexibility, enthusiasm, responsibility, team spirit and excellent collaboration skills.
  • Capable of working on your own initiative when appropriate.
