Ph.D. student position in Nanotechnology: Uppsala University

The Division of Nanotechnology and Functional Materials (NFM), Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Uppsala University has a Ph.D. position available in Nanotechnology, focusing on the 3D printing of oral dosage forms utilizing microneedle injections.

About the Project: 

  • The project, linked to the Uppsala Diabetes Centre, will be carried out at the Division of Nanotechnology and Functional Materials and the Department of Pharmacy to produce 3D-printed oral dosage forms that utilize microneedles to administer insulin and GLP-1 analogs to treat diabetes efficiently.
  • In the project, the candidate shall design and print prototype microneedle-based oral dosage forms suitable for efficiently delivering macromolecular drugs. 
  • The aim is to identify a proper production technique, and excipient combinations, select microneedle-based dosage forms, and explore them for loading, release, and systemic delivery of APIs. 
  • The project will result in proof-of-concept data around the microneedle-based delivery of macromolecules.


  • Applicant must hold a Master of Science degree in chemical engineering, pharmacy, materials chemistry, materials science, nanotechnology, or related fields.
  • Applicant must possess excellent oral and written proficiency in English.

The application should include the following:

  • A brief personal letter where you briefly describe yourself, why you want to become a Ph.D. student, and why you are suitable for the position
