Position 4: Postdoc in Advanced Multibody Solids Computational Automation Workflow

  • As a CAMD postdoc in the VILLUM Investigator project, you will develop new methods to characterise the electronic structure of bulk and low-dimensional materials and integrate them into automated workflows to enable their application in high-throughput screening projects. Code development should target both CPU and GPU computing architectures. You will work in an international and stimulating environment with other PhD students and postdocs, using state-of-the-art computational methods and code developed within the group. The CAMD DTU Physics Department is located in the northern part of Copenhagen and offers an international and scientifically stimulating working environment. The department develops the GPAW electronic structure code, the Atomic Simulation Environment (ASE) and other open source software projects and databases. The project has access to significant computing resources through the DTU supercomputer facility in Niflheim.

Position 5: Postdoc in Theory and Simulation of Thin Film Driven Polymer Devices with Acoustic Fluids for Biotechnological Applications

  • A unique opportunity is available in the research group of Prof. Henrik Bruus at the Department of Physics (DTU Physics) at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). We offer a postdoctoral position to participate in the development of novel polymer-based thin film transducer-driven acoustic fluid devices for isolation and enrichment of exosomes from blood for next generation point-of-care diagnostics. Exosomes are nanoscale extracellular vesicles released by a variety of different cell types. They are considered to be important biomarkers with high diagnostic potential in a wide range of diseases, including several types of cancer, hepatitis, renal, cardiovascular and liver diseases. Working closely with our project partners in transducer materials science, biomedical engineering and industrial acoustic flow control applications, this postdoctoral project will provide the theoretical and numerical modelling components for the development of such novel acoustic flow control devices. The project is hosted by the Department of Biophysics and Fluids at DTU Physics and is part of the European Innovation Council project AcouSome, which involves partners from DTU, Lund University, the biotech company AcouSort and the innovation studio Day One.
