Medical Ultrasonics Laboratory, Aalto University
Location: Aalto, Finland
PhD Candidate in Physics of Acoustic Cavitation
Medical Ultrasonics Laboratory, Aalto University, Finland
Full description of the position:
We are looking for a PhD Candidate to work in the field of acoustic cavitation in ultrasonic frequencies. The specific research topic has a high level of novelty and while the project is basic research, we foresee a large number of applications in a large number of fields including medical devices, microactuators and drug delivery.
Your background and expertise:
The ideal candidate has a MSc degree in physics, but an applicable degree in acoustics or engineering may apply. You should have strong skills in physics and mathematics, excellent merits in your studies and demonstrated skills in theoretical and/or experimental work during your MSc thesis. While not mandatory, a bonus is to have knowledge in one or more of the following areas: acoustic cavitation, acoustic streaming, Bjerknes forces and cavitation-induced shock waves. If you have not graduated yet, you should obtain your MSc degree by the end of 2021.
You communicate clearly and have excellent interpersonal skills. You can work both independently and as a part of the team. You demonstrate a high level of enthusiasm and commitment to academic research.
What we offer:
You will work along with 10-15 other researchers from Medical Ultrasonics Laboratory (MEDUSA) (main site of your research) Aalto University and from collaborator laboratories at Aalto University and University College London. MEDUSA's research is currently funded by Academy of Finland, Business Finland and EU.
The salary level is fixed to departmental levels based on career stage starting from approx. 2500 € per month. The time to complete the PhD is four years, once accepted to the doctoral programme. Funding can be provided up to four years from the beginning of your agreement.
