PhD Position on Harnessing Cyber-Physical Force-Fields for Contactless Microchip Assembly

The Delft University of Technology invites applications for its PhD position Harnessing cyber-physical force fields for contactless microchip assembly.

The Department of Precision and Microsystems Engineering (PME) of the 3mE faculty focuses on developing knowledge and methods for small, innovative, high-precision devices and systems, such as scientific instrumentation and biomimetic platforms for the molecular diagnostics and high-tech industry.

The vacant position is in the Dynamics of Micro and Nanosystems (DMN) section. The group focuses on exploiting the dynamics and mechanics of small-scale systems to create new platforms in the fields of scientific instrumentation, healthcare, and consumer electronics. Our research topics span from measuring and manipulating (bio)materials at the micro and nanoscale, to the design of reliable MEMS and NEMS sensors and actuators.

The successful candidate will be part of a team of 6 PhD and 2 postdoc researchers, that work together with staff scientists and engineers at TU Delft and the company Nexperia. Each of the researchers will work on a dedicated part of the project, while at the same time closely collaborating with the rest of the team to ensure all parts can eventually fit together to realize all steps that need to be performed in the chip assembly process.


The PhD position Harnessing cyber-physical force fields for contactless microchip assembly includes

  • Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.
  • The TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package,
  • Discounts on health insurance and sport memberships, and
  • A monthly work costs contribution.

Job Requirements

The position seeks international candidates that:

  • Have an MSc. degree in mechanical engineering, physics, electrical engineering or related fields.
  • Have experience and/or affinity with designing and building controlling electromechanical systems.
  • Likes to design and realize optical/vision/sensor systems for automized feedback, control and model validation.
  • Comes up with creative new solutions for dealing with the diverse challenges that accompany the accurate and fast manipulation of microchips.
  • Is a team player that likes to collaborate with colleagues from university and industry.
  • Is enthousiastic to work on cool, ground-breaking technology with the aim to revolutionize future chip production methods.
  • Have a strong command of the English language and good communication skills.
