postdoctoral research associate.
The Bioelectronics Systems Lab at Columbia University in the City of New York is pursuing innovative research at the convergence of biotechnology and integrated circuit design. Current NIH-funded research includes the use of CMOS integrated circuit chips for biomolecular assays, including both DNA and proteins. Sensing modalities include fluorescent, electrochemical, and mass-based detection approaches.
We are seeking a postdoctoral research associate with a Ph. D. in molecular biology, chemistry, physics, chemical engineering, electrical engineering or bioengineering to assist in the development of new tools for biological research based on integrated circuit technology, including the development of chemistries and protocols for integrated-circuit-based assays, testing of integrated-circuit-based sensors for clinical and environmental monitoring applications, and development of packaging and microfluidic delivery systems to enable portable application of integrated-circuit-based sensors. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in biology and chemistry and seek to learn more about semiconductor processing and integrated circuit design in the exciting new field of bioelectronic systems.
If interested, please send a complete CV including the names of three references to Prof. Ken Shepard (email@example.com
). The position will remain open until filled by a highly qualified candidate. Salary will be commensurate with skill and experience but can be expected to be highly competitive.
