Research area or group: NanoBiosensors and Bioanalytical Applications Group
Description of Group/Project:
NanoB2A group focuses on the development of novel nanobiosensor devices based on plasmonics, nanoplasmonics and silicon-based photonics principles, including surface biofunctionalization, microfluidics for automatic fluid delivery and complete lab-on-a-chip integration for point-of-care devices. The application of the nanobiosensor devices in real clinical diagnostics and environmental control is one of the Group's main objectives. The Job is frame within a recent EU H2020 granted project aiming at the development of Advanced nanobiosensing platforms for POC lobal diagnostics and surveillance for combating SARS-CoV-2 disease
Main Tasks and responsibilities:
The postdoctoral researcher will be in charge of the assembly of a point-of-care prototype based on photonic biosensors already developed in the research group. This includes integration of multiplexed capabilities, microfludics, harware and software, together with the engineers of the team.
Education, Experience, Knowledge and Competences required:
· Education: Ph Degree degree in Physics (Optics), telecommunications, electrical or optical engineering.
· Professional Experience:
Background in Optics, preferably with demonstrated experience in silicon photonics.
Knowledge of simulation and modelling softwares (i.e. Lumerical, Comsol) and of LabView and Python will be preferred.
Basic knowledge of microlfuidics will be positively considered.
Experimental optical setup design and implementation will be highly considered.
Excellent level of
English (Fluent in writing and speaking) is required.
· Competences: Highly motivated, enthusiastic, proactive and responsible. Good communication and organization skills.
Summary of conditions:
· Full time work (37,5h/week)
