PhD position – “Nanoelectronics and microfluidics for DNA computation”


PhD position at IEMN-CNRS: (October 2014 start date)

“Nanoelectronics and microfluidics for DNA computation”

Keywords: DNA computing, microfluidics, nanoelectronics, nanobiotechnology, microfabrication

Life possesses a remarkable ability to perform complex computation while relying on networks of intertwined chemical reactions. Replicating this ability is of major importance in fields ranging from unconventional computation to biosensors and smart autonomous systems to cite just a few. Using DNA itself for computation can be traced back to the seminal paper by Adelman [1] which illustrated the power of the massively parallel processing of information permitted by DNA by attempting to solve NP-complete system. Since then, several other approaches have been developed [2-3]. The most recent DNA computing framework was developed by Rondelez et al. [4-5] and relies on a combination of short DNA strands and enzyme to create dynamical system which can be used for computation. Lire la suite

Winter 2013 – Post Doc Position – Development of micro-transfer technologies for zero-newton placement and bonding of ultimately thin semiconductor chips


Post-Doc position for 18 months:
Development of micro-transfer technologies for zero-newton placement and bonding of ultimately thin semiconductor chips

The overall objective is to develop alternative placement and bonding technologies of thinned high frequency chip (100 µm² large and 10 µm thick) on flexible substrates. In particular the work aims at designing zero-newton placement and bonding strategies of thin semiconductor chips onto plastic foils. To do so the candidate will have to integrate state of the art knowledge on (i) surface energy modification by geometric and chemical modification and on (ii) interplay between capillary and elastic forces between flexible thin film and liquid droplets. The work will be performed in the clean-rooms of IEMN where state of the art equipments are available (see website) to study and optimize wafer grinding and surface texturing processing steps and to set-up and to characterize microfluidic experiments.
