Postdoctoral Fellow/Research Associate in Nanomaterials for Biosensing
The Chen research group in the Department of Chemistry at York University, Toronto, Ontario, is seeking a full-time postdoctoral research associate in the field of nanomaterials for biosensing.
We seek an outstanding candidate with expertise in bioconjugated nanomaterials. The highly motivated candidate will join us in working at the interface of analytical and materials chemistry to develop plasmonic nanoparticle-based sensors for the analysis of single cells and the cellular microenvironment.
A PhD degree in the following discipline is required: analytical chemistry, materials chemistry, biomedical engineering or a closely related field. In addition to having the experience in developing nanostructured sensors or imaging probes, other skillsets encompassing molecular biology techniques (e.g. DNA/RNA extraction and purification, RT-qPCR), cell culturing, tissue sampling, microscopy, microfluidics and microfabrication are desirable. The candidate should have a strong publishing record, excellent communication and interpersonal skills, leadership potential and the ability to mentor students.
The position is available immediately. A starting date beyond 2020 may be considered for an exceptional candidate. The term is one year with the possibility to renew up to 3 years, depending on performance.
