Postdoc/Assistant Professor in Biophysics and Molecular Engineering
The Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) has the following vacancy:
Postdoc / Assistant Professor in the field of Molecular Engineering for Biomolecular Sensing within the department of Biomedical Engineering (BME).
- Eindhoven, Noord-Brabant
- Tijdelijk contract / Tijdelijke opdracht
- Uren per week:
- 38 uur
We are searching for a scientist who is interested to push the frontiers of biosensing with a bottom-up biophysical approach. The candidate should have experience with (a) the design of molecules and molecular structures and (b) studies of their functional properties with single-molecule resolution. The aim is to develop novel concepts for recognition and transduction for real-time monitoring of molecules and molecular processes in complex macromolecular environments.
About Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e):
The TU/e is a University of Technology with a focus on Health, Energy and Mobility. Within the Health area, several departments cooperate on topics such as Chemical Biology, Regenerative Medicine, Computational Biology, and Biosensing, with close links to healthcare and industry. The TU/e is an open and inclusive university with short communication lines. The people are curious, collaborative, and strive for excellence. TU/e enables its academic staff to develop research and education at an internationally renowned level. Our lively campus community facilitates connections between staff and students, in an open, friendly, vibrant atmosphere that welcomes and inspires.
About the Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME):
The Department of Biomedical Engineering offers a research driven BME Bachelor program and Masters Biomedical Engineering, Medical Sciences and Technology and Medical Engineering in its Graduate Program. Research areas range from Molecular Bioengineering and Imaging, Biomechanics and Tissue Engineering to Biomedical Imaging and Modeling. The department has more than 800 students and up to 200 tenured and non-tenured employees.
About the Institute for Complex Molecular Systems (ICMS):
The Institute for Complex Molecular Systems is an interdisciplinary institute at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) which brings excellent researchers from different areas together to promote cross-breeding of ideas across disciplines in the departments Biomedical Engineering, Applied Physics, Chemical Engineering and Chemistry, Mathematics and Computer Science, and Mechanical Engineering. The institute aims to create and study biologically relevant functional structures with the ultimate goal of understanding the complexity of life.
The group Molecular Biosensing for Medical Diagnostics (MBx, see www.tue.nl/mbx) aims at creating ideas and generating scientific insights in the area of molecular biosensing technologies. This involves the engineering of molecular constructs for sensing applications (using protein, nucleic-acid, and protein-DNA technologies), methods to biofunctionalize nanoparticles, methods to characterize particle behavior in complex environments (e.g. protein corona), the development of novel single-molecule measurement methods, optical microscopies, particle characterization techniques, plasmonic effects, particle actuation principles, signal processing, and simulations. The group develops technologies to detect proteins and study protein function with single-molecule sensitivity in complex macromolecular environments. The research leads to novel methods for molecular biosensing, insights into protein function within complex and crowded environments, and novel routes into point-of-care and patient monitoring applications. Laboratories are shared with the Chemical Biology research group of the Department of Biomedical Engineering (www.tue.nl/cb) and the Institute for Complex Molecular Systems (www.tue.nl/icms).
ArbeidsvoorwaardenWe offer you:
Women in Science The TU/e strives towards a diversified workforce at all function levels. Part of this endeavor is to appoint more talented women to scientific positions. The Women in Science (WISE) network at TUe is very actively promoting to share knowledge and experience which may further assist newly appointed female scientific staff in their further professional and personal development.
