Bio-integrated Microdevices Lab
• At BMD Lab, we explore electro-mechanical/chemical sensor & actuator device designs, materials, and microfabrication processes to create bio-integrated microdevices -wearables & implantables- as next-generation medical devices.
• The lab is composed of researchers with various backgrounds and technical interests. This creates a multidisciplinary research environment enabling a broad research portfolio.
Open position for Postdocs (bio-chemical sensors)
Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the leading cause of death globally, with 18 million deaths annually. Recently supported by the European Research Council (ERC), 2ND-CHANCE project aims to provide novel solutions for management and elimination of major drawbacks of CVDs. The 2ND-CHANCE implant system consists of sensors and wireless communication system for continuous monitoring of CVDs. A Postdoctoral research fellowship for chemical sensor development is available in the Bio-integrated Microdevices Laboratory.
• PhD in Chemistry, Biomedical Engineering, EE, or related fields with strong research foundation involving chemical-bio sensor systems and technologies
• Fundamental understanding of electrochemical processes & general sensing physics and signal transduction
• Scientific and functional excellence in applied chemistry; experience in sensing systems is a plus;
• 3+ years of sensor design engineering experience (graduate research is applicable)
• Experience in building prototype systems, surface functionalization, SAM
• Experience working with spectroscopy and other optical methods.
• Experience working with bio-medical applications
• Microfabrication experience is a plus
• Design & development of electrochemical sensor module architecture leading to proof-of-concept and initial prototype hardware
