NanoLund Master Portal

This is a tool to assist students in finding the right supervisor from NanoLund to their Masters thesis.

Master project information

Information about the master thesis process for the different faculties can be found below.

Current master project offers

Microscopy setup for sequencing of genetic sequences inside brain tissue

Sequencing in tissues – Explore biological processes at the single base resolution with novel (micro-)fluidics

In this project you will participate in an interdisciplinary research team with the goal of developing state-of-the-art sequencing technologies inside biological tissues. The specific goal of the thesis project is to develop and implement microfluidics coupled to microscopy for optical read out of gene sequences and protein localization.

Depending on your interests, different focus areas are possible: software and method developmental approach with programming of the fluidics system or a more hardware development oriented focus including some prototyping and electronics.

The portal - research groups that offer master thesis projects continuously

NanoLund Master Portal (Excel, 181 kB, new window)

It is a .xlsx file that can be opened in either Microsoft Excel, LibreOffice Calc or in Google Sheets. The file contains information about NanoLund seniors who have used tags to describe their research.

There are two main types of tags. The first one being Method Tags, which are used to describe the methods typically employed in projects supervised by them, e.g "Simulation/Modelling". The second type is Scientific Tags, which are used to roughly describe their research area e.g. "Nanosafety" + "Devices". There are also Special Tags, which marks special things of interest e.g. close ties with industry or facilities like sheets

How to use the portal

The portal can opened in either Microsoft Excel, LibreOffice Calc or Google Sheets. In the SearchTab there are coloured fields that can each be filled with one tag of the specified kind. The cells are filled by selecting the desired tag in the drop-down menu. Mark the column, then the drop-down menu appears, however if the drop down menu does not appear you can fill the boxes by typing.

The Method Tags use an OR search, which means that people that have either one of the specified method tags will be listed. The Scientific Tags use an AND search, which means that the people listed will have all of the chosen scientific tags.

The search result will show up under the headers below the search fields. Here you can find information about the people that matches your search. The information included is name, affiliation, Email address, the researcher's tags, link to personal webpage and a short description of his/her research.
