FLinT is training students and scientists in both fundamental science courses and courses specializing in the foundation of living systems. Due to our collective expertise our training is based on experimental, computational, and theoretical methodologies.

We are currently teaching:

A list of all our teaching activities can be found here.

Student projects

In addition to the scheduled teaching we also offer:

  • PhD positions: We have several openings for experimental and theoretical PhD candidates to support the various tasks associated with the development and the assembly of a minimal self-reproducing nano-machine (see FLinT web). A keen interest in the topic, documented competency, and a strong background in one or more of the relevant areas, e.g. computational physics and chemistry, organic synthetic chemistry, supramolecular chemistry, molecular biology, or microfluidics, is required. Necessary detailed scientific profile will strongly depend on the PhD topic. Contact: Steen Rasmussen, Carsten Svaneborg, Pierre-Alain Monnard.
  • BS and MS thesis projects: We have many possibilities for hosting and supporting Bachelor and Master thesis students with a keen interest in our mission (see FLinT web) and a strong background in one or more of the pertinent fields of science, such as physics, chemistry, material science, molecular biology, microfluidics, and related. Contact: Steen Rasmussen, Carsten Svaneborg, Pierre-Alain Monnard.
  • In collaboration with other SDU or external scientific staff we may also support exceptional students from other fields, e.g. to develop Internet based international collaboratory environments for protocell research or to explore scenarios for the long-term potential societal impact of living technology.
