Postdoctoral Research Associate – Biochemistry in nanosensors
We are accepting candidates for a postdoctoral research associate in our multidisciplinary research group. Our group designs nanosensors to detect ions (Na, K, Ca, etc.) and small molecules (Histamine, acetylcholine, etc.), and we are building up to detecting larger molecules. We are looking for motivated candidates who have a strong background in biochemistry, particularly protein biochemistry and/or inflammation. The candidate must have an interest in nanotechnology, as the project will focus on detection of inflammatory markers using implantable nanosensors.


Qualifications & essential functions: PhD degree in molecular biology, biochemistry, biomedical sciences, or a related field with expertise in protein biochemistry. Expertise in at least two of the three areas:
- Standard molecular biology techniques in eukaryotic cells
- Synthetic peptide or aptamer binding evaluation
- Inflammation and cytokine biochemistry
