Whether your passion is ship design or medical research , virtual reality or urban renewal in China , NTNU has something for you. NTNU is Norway's second largest university, with an annual budget of about US $800 million. Its 53 departments are spread out over seven major campuses, and graduate about 3,300 students every year, two-thirds of which are master's or PhD candidates. The university has more than 100 laboratory facilities distributed among the different faculties and departments. These are central elements in NTNU's education and research work. One hundred years of innovation NTNU research is cutting edge, and many of the technological and cultural innovations that allow Norway to extract oil from the North Sea , grow healthy salmon in fish farms , or interpret the country's 9,000 years of human history have been developed here. In fact, the university itself, founded in 1910, has contributed a solid century of academic achievements and discoveries that have shaped Norwegian society. A brief overview of the university's first 100 years can be found here . Norway's most popular student city Students are at the core of NTNU's vibrancy. The university is home to roughly 350 different student organizations , where you can meet people who are interested in everything from Amnesty International to telemark skiing. NTNUI , the student athletic organization, operates two sports centres with training facilities and courses. Festivals and Nobel laureates Every other year, student volunteers organize two popular festivals: UKA , which is Norway's largest arts and music festival, and ISFiT, an internationally known student conferences. While UKA is recognized for attracting top international musicians along with a range of art exhibits, performances and its very own UKA revue, ISFiT, the International Student Festival in Trondheim, regularly attracts world leaders to address and inspire conference participants. In 2009, for example, Nobel laureate Desmond Tutu was the opening speaker. It's no wonder that Trondheim is regularly voted as Norway's best university student town.

PhD research fellow in Biophysics and nanomedicine
The PhD student will work on the project “Acoustic Cluster Therapy (ACT) for improved treatment of cancer and brain diseases” funded by the Research Council of Norway. This project is in collaboration with international universities and two companies Phoenix Solutions who developed a platform for ultrasound activated targeted drug delivery and Cristal therapeutics who developed a pioneering approach to transform drugs into tailor-made nanoparticles. A major challenge in cancer therapy is to obtain adequate delivery of the therapeutic agents to cancer cells, and limit the systemic exposure. The explored concepts utilize an acoustic activated cluster (microbubble/ microdroplet) system and nanoparticles to deliver a drug payload at the targeted pathology. The biodistribution of (novel) biologicals will be assessed using (fluorescence) microscopy other imaging modalities in healthy animals and disease models. In vivo MRI, ultrasound, near-infrared fluorescence (NIRF) imaging, ex vivo analyses, and histological examinations will be used to investigate the in vivo distribution and behavior of the nanoparticles.
