Thesis, internship, and post-doc opportunities
Lithography in aqueous media for biochip microarraying
Offer N°: SL-DSM-15-0400
Biochips are micro devices of increasing interest in several fields, such as genomics and proteomics. These tools are made of molecular probes arrayed on solid supports where interactions with biological targets (DNA, proteins, sugars, cells) occur.
CMOS Image sensors embedding in-pixel sensing and energy harvesting capabilities
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0384
The aim of this PhD work is to explore new architectures of CMOS Image Sensors dedicated to very low power applications. These sensors will have to be an ultra-low power system with energy harvesting capabilities (photovoltaic mode).
Nano-sized luminescent devices based on lanthanide complexes
Offer N°: SL-DSM-15-0020
The lanthanide-based visible and NIR luminescence emission attracts a considerable interest in the field of lighting, light emitting diodes, light converters, optical fibres for telecommunication, logic gates, barcoded materials, labels for biomedical analysis, chiral recognition or sensors. In theses fields, the creation complexes, edifices or devices based on lanthanide (III) is obtained with the association of metals and organic chromophores.
Magnetic nanoparticles for cancer cells destruction - triggering of cancer cells apoptosis
Offer N°: SL-DSM-15-0171
This thesis deals with the use of magnetic nanoparticles for biomedical applications. The objective is the targeted destruction of cancer cells thanks to an innovative technique. This approach consists in triggering the apoptosis (programmed death) of cancer cells thanks to the mechanical vibrations of magnetic particles attached to the cells membranes. This approach discovered in 2010 has been investigated within a first thesis at INAC.
