Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) is seeking a bright PhD candidate to develop DNA-based data storage systems based on the encapsulation of DNA files inside semipermeable microcapsules. Work in this area is expected to deliver new technologies for archival data storage. The PhD is part of the ERC Consolidator grant “Autonomous Computing Artificial Cells” (AMIGA) and you will work with other PhD students and post-docs on this topic.
The successful candidate should be excited about applying biological design principles to develop new technologies in the area of molecular biosensing and molecular data storage. Doctoral research will be part of wider and exciting efforts currently spearheaded within the Synthetic Biology group led by prof. Tom de Greef.
We are accepting applications from enthusiastic and highly talented candidates who are interested in a dynamic, stimulating, and ambitious environment to perform their research. We are looking for candidates that meet the following requirements:
The position will be based at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in the Netherlands. Doctoral research will be performed within the Synthetic Biology group in the Department of Biomedical Engineering under the supervision of prof. Tom de Greef. Our research is directed at the bottom-up construction of basic cellular functions from well-characterized biological components, and the development of novel biological computing devices that can enhance signal-processing capabilities of natural and synthetic cells.
