Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Nanophotonic Devices and Integration (BB-2AFAA)
Gefunden in: Neuvoo CH
Your mission : The BioNanoPhotonic Systems (BIOS) laboratory at the Institute of BioEngineering at EPFL Switzerland, is seeking a postdoctoral research fellow to work on nanophotonic point-of-care (POC) systems. BIOS lab has world leading expertise in developing novel nanophotonic devices for cutting-edge biomedical applications by using toolkits including metasurfaces, microfluidics, nanofabrication, advanced data analysis. In addition, BIOS has strong interactions with industry to address important challenges in healthcare and environmental sciences. This project is multidisciplinary with emphasis on device integration, user interface design and data processing. The ultimate goal of the project is to combine multiple nanophotonic devices, optical and optoelectronic components to realize miniaturized POC devices using IR spectroscopy and bioimaging for bioanalytical applications. Main duties and responsibilities include :
Developing nanophotonic systems and prototypes for infrared biosensing and imaging
Integrating nanophotonic devices and mid-infrared components into a POC device for biomolecular analysis
Creating user-friendly software interfaces
Analyzing experimental IR imaging data and vibrational fingerprints for detection and identification of mixed samples with the POC systems
Validating assembled nanotechnology-based POC systems for applications in the field
Your profile :
Knowledge and experience in device integration, signal processing and data analysis are required.
Experience in photonics and nanotechnology are preferred.
Previous experience in system integration and/or prototype of optoelectronic and/or electronic devices
Knowledge of programming user interfaces for devices (e.g., LabVIEW, Python, or Matlab)
Experience of data analysis of spectroscopy signals from complex samples is a plus
We offer :
Opportunity to work on cutting-edge projects for bioanalytical applications with novel nanophotonic sensors
Opportunity to interact with world-leading industry companies for technology transfer
The candidate will have the opportunity of conducting research in a top-ranked engineering school, with a young, stimulating, dynamic, interdisciplinary, and international working environment.
EPFL is an international and world-class engineering university. It offers state-of-the-art facilities, scientific events and training and hosts a vibrant entrepreneurial community.
EPFL is an equal-opportunity employer. Candidates will be recruited on merit only.
We offer a competitive salary commensurate with skills and experience, and subject to EPFL salary scale.
