Master's Thesis / PhD Candidate Position in Biomedical Ultrasonics

Aalto University

Aalto University is a community of bold thinkers where science and art meet technology and business. We are committed to identifying and solving grand societal challenges and building an innovative future. Aalto University has six schools with nearly 20 000 students and more than 400 professors. Our campuses are located in Espoo and Helsinki, Finland.

Our research at the Medical Ultrasonics Laboratory (MEDUSA) focuses on innovating new ultrasound platforms for biomedical use with a goal to translate these into hospital and research environments. The technology typically relies on non-linear ultrasonics, which enables actuation and manipulation of matter from distance without touching (e.g. moving molecules/particles, generation acoustic streams, levitation, liquid micro-jets). Most of the applications are intended for advanced therapy or diagnostics in the field of cancer or osteoarthritis management.

We are looking for a master's thesis worker or doctoral student to work with a new ultrasonics platform. Your work will include setting up advanced experimental arrangements and prototypes, running experiments and conducting data analysis (signals, images, high speed video). We offer you an ambitious and high-tech working environment with challenging and interesting research topics. The ideal candidate has:

  • Suitable studies (experimental, theoretical or both) e.g. in physics, electronics, mechanics, photonics, materials sciences and biomedical engineering,
  • Excellent study record
  • Good English & team working skills
  • Aim and capability to continue as a graduate student
  • Capability to work independently and learn new things quickly (you are a problem solver)

For more information, please contact us via e-mail at heikki.j.nieminen (a) and submit your application (max. 1 page) with appendixes (CV, transcript of records, other supporting material). Filling the position does not have a strict deadline, but we aim to fill the position once a suitable candidate has been identified.

Salary for a Master’s Thesis worker is 2099.50€ per month. The starting salary for a PhD Candidate is 2423.79€ per month.
