Open position for Postdocs (Bio-Chemical Censors)

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.
