OPEN POSITION : BIOLOGIST / BIOENGINEER (XS18-RD-03)
As a Biologist / Bioengineer in a fast-paced cross-functional R&D team, you will interface with microtechnology and metabolism fields.
You will be responsible for the development of novel biological probes for sensing, for their characterization and their implementation in sensor chips an essential component for the broadening of our Lab-
on-SkinTM sensing platform.
PhD or Master in biology, molecular biology, synthetic biology, biochemistry, life sciences, bioengineering, bioelectronics (or equivalent) with 3 years or more experience in a similar position.
Expertise in screening and developing novel biological coatings and probes (e.g. proteins, peptides, aptamers, antibodies and enzymes) in particular for diagnostic sensors / assays development.
Strong experience in biomolecules deposition / immobilization for functionalization of surfaces, bioconjugation and attachment chemistries (for e.
g. self-assembled monolayers, matrix, MIP, etc.).
Extensive hands-on / bench experience with aptamers, antibodies and enzymes in particular for biosensing.
Knowledge of affinity-based biosensors or other biochemical sensors, electrochemical detection methods, immunoassays, DNA detection, aptamers is preferable.
Capabilities to set up laboratory infrastructure, design, develop, or adapt equipment used in experiments.
Experience in the handling and evaluation of clinical biofluid samples is preferable.
Ability to work in a multidisciplinary field and cooperate with an interdisciplinary team.
Ability to work independently in a fast-paced environment.
