PhD position in microtechnology: 3D printing microfluidic simulations

Institut für Mikrotechnik

The Institute of Microtechnology of the Technical University of Braunschweig is looking to fill a PhD position (Entgeltgruppe E 13, m/w/d) as part of Prof. Dr. Iordania Constantinou’s research group. The earliest starting date for this position will be on 15.05.2020. The contract will at first cover 24 months.

The project involves the simulation and fabrication of 3D printed microfluidics. The work will be carried out in close collaboration with an industrial partner in the area. Research will focus on new materials, new printing techniques, and new applications.

Desired qualifications:
•An above-average master’s degree in mechanical engineering, physics, or related
•Experience in microfluidic and mechanical simulations
•Theoretical and practical experience in the area of microfluidic systems
•Experience in 3D printing
•Interest in gaining teaching experience
•Flexibility and reliability
•Very good knowledge of Englishand German

The Institute of Microtechnology (Institut für Mikrotechnik) is home to a dynamic team working on a range of interdisciplinary subjects in a collaborative environment. A state-of-the-art clean room facility, in combination with additional associated laboratories provides all necessary equipment and support for the fabrication and characterization of novel microsystems. Part of the work mentioned above will be carried out in the newly founded Center of Pharmaceutical Engineering (PVZ) in Braunschweig. In PVZ experts from pharmacy, process engineering, and microtechnology work together towards the production of inexpensive, tailor-made medicines and medical devices.

The TU Braunschweig aims to increase the number of women in science and technology. Women are therefore strongly urged to apply, as are qualified handicapped applicants. The university is multi-cultural and applications are welcome from all nationalities. As this is an industry-oriented project, it is most suitable for applicants particularly interested in future employment in an industrial setting. Please note that personal data and documents related to the application process will be stored electronically, and that application costs cannot be refunded.

Applications should be sent directly to Prof. Dr. Iordania Constantinou at Please include a complete CV accompanied by a short cover letter and a copy of all available university transcripts. We look forward to receiving your application.
