About This PhD Project

Project Description

The PhD student will develop soft electronic components such as electrodes for recording and stimulation of neural tissue. The research will include materials and devices based on soft and elastic electronic composite materials to facilitate close integration with neural tissue and thereby translation of biological and electronic signals. The composite materials often comprise nanomaterials with electronic functionality and soft elastomers for mechanical properties. The PhD studies will include processing of components in cleanroom and printing facilities, as well as characterization of electrical/mechanical material properties. The work will be carried out in collaboration with the institute RISE Acreo and external partners for bio-applications.

The PhD studies will be conducted at the Laboratory of Organic Electronics (LOE), which focus on the study and application of electronically and ionically conducting materials in an array of areas spanning bioelectronics, energy harvesting and storage, printed electronics and photonics. https://liu.se/en/research/laboratory-of-organic-electronics

A suitable background for this position is a master’s or engineering degree in materials science, biomedical engineering, physics, electronics, or biotechnology.
