FAU Dept. EEI: 9 Doctoral Researchers and 1 Postdoctoral Researcher

Research Training Group (RTG) 2950 - Synthetic Molecular Communications Across Different Scales: From Theory to Experiments (SyMoCADS) is a research training program funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) with the aim to educate scientists and engineers in this emerging interdisciplinary field of research. The RTG comprises ten principal advisors (PAs) from the Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Science, the Medical Faculty, and the University Hospital. Research takes place in an excellent scientific environment at FAU, with top-notch instrumentation in the laboratories of the participating principal advisors (PAs).The research program and the structured qualification program aim to equip the participating researchers with the knowledge and skill set needed to significantly advance the field of molecular communication (MC) and to bring it to the realm of practical applications.


The RTG consists of 9 doctoral research projects (P1-P9) organized in 3 clusters (C1-C3) and a cross-cluster postdoctoral project (P10).


Cluster C1 (Projects P1 - P3) focuses on the use of MC for the design, monitoring, and control of bioprocesses on a microliter scale.

Cluster C2 (projects P4 - P6) focuses on the MC-based modelling, analysis, and design of magnetic steering systems for superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs).

Cluster C3 (projects P7 - P9) focuses on the development of models, designs, and system architectures for airborne MC.
