Detailed subject description
The objective of this thesis is to participate in the development of a microfluidic device that
will be able to isolate and characterize microbial communities immured in ice cores. Given
that access to ice core samples for biological exploration is limited due to technical issues
related to sample volume required in traditional approaches as well as contamination issues,
there is a clear need to miniaturize and improve sampling and analysis tools. By miniaturizing
the sample volumes, we will also increase the temporal resolution (in traditional methods,
large sample volumes of ice are melted and incorporate different layers that represent
different time scales).

The position required a strong record in microfluidics applied to biotechnologies. This should include biophysics, biotechnologies and good knowledge in data processing. Good communication and organization skills will be appreciated.

The research project will benefit from the support of an interdisciplinary team and relevant technological platforms.

Objectives
The PhD work is based on an interplay between experimental and numerical approaches:

  • To design and fabricate a small-volume micro-fluidic rheometric device.
  • To interpret measurement data using computational models.
  • To identify the effect of lymph mechanics through computational models of the lymphatic system.
