Marie Curie Actions funded job vacancy Optical sensing systems engineer

  !   Offer by Large Company/SME

Design and realization of a
complex micro-nano biosensor array based on two kinds of transduction systems: optical and electrochemical


Specific tasks of the ER-project will include: (a) preliminary analysis of the phenomena involved in design and functionalizing of an innovative multi-transduction device. (b) CFD, optical and optical with magnetic bids simulations aimed at the feasibility study and the instrument concept. (c) Manufacturing of a complex micro-nano biosensor array based on two kinds of transduction systems: optical and electrochemical with magnetic bids.
Also a specific activity for assessing the software functionality of the entire device is expected.
The focus will be engineering development of a multipurpose platform which will require a wide range of competences due to the multidisciplinarity included in the concept of the multi-transduction device mentioned above. Previous studies in engineering, physics or mathematics are more advisable.
The requested ER will have to be confident with manual assembly techniques, possessing a discrete background in system engineering and a good experience in software development for signal analyzing and operation management.
Previous experience in micro biosensor devices or bioengineering tools is appreciated.
