Research Assistant \ Associate in Biosensing and Diagnostics at Imperial College London

Closing date: 23 September 2020
Ref: ENG01373

The purpose of the post is: designing, synthesising and characterising nanostructured materials for applications in biosensing of disease biomarkers taking a multidisciplinary approach integrating materials science and bioengineering approaches to yield functional nanomaterials that will enable good biomarker detection for infectious and non-communicable diseases. These nanomaterials will be investigated for their recognition and binding capacities and evaluated for use in assays such as lateral flow or point-of-care or ELISA-based formats. The post also involves the clinical validation of the bioanalytical techniques.

The post-holder will be active within a vibrant and multidisciplinary environment comprising multiple projects in the group of Professor Molly Stevens. This post will liaise closely with researchers trained in a wide array of faculties, including nanomaterials, engineering, as well as biology (with focus areas in drug delivery, tissue engineering and diagnostics).
