Marie Sklodowska-Curie Early Career Researcher – 2019 in UK University

University of Leeds, UK invites application for Marie Sklodowska-Curie Early Career Researcher position from eligible and interested candidates 

Designation/Position- Marie Sklodowska-Curie Early Career Researcher

About- Join a recently funded European Training Network (ETN) SENTINEL (project ID 812398, call H2020-MSCA-ITN-2018). SENTINEL offers high-level doctoral training to a total of 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) of which 2 will be employed at the University of Leeds. Marie Sklodowska-Curie Early Career Researcher – 2019

You will develop functional electrochemical nanosensors based on nanopipettes that will be integrated in advanced microfluidic platforms for organs-on-chip monitoring.

Research/Job Area-  Chemistry, nanotechnology and biology

Location-Faculty of Engineering, University of Leeds, UK

Eligibility/Qualification–There are no restrictions on the nationality, but

  • Applicants must, at the time of recruitment, have not yet been awarded a doctorate degree and be in the first 4 years (full-time equivalent) of their research careers. This is measured from the date that you obtained the degree which would entitle you to embark on a PhD.
  • At the time of recruitment, applicants must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc…) in the UK for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment under the SENTINEL project. Compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays are not taken into account.

This figure is before employer’s and employee’s deductions for national insurance and taxes per year, which will be paid in Sterling using an appropriate conversion rate.

To deliver an integrated platform enabling the recording of the metabolic activity (e.g glucose and oxygen consumption) of human organs-on-chip for developmental toxicology and drug discovery studies. 

• ETH Zurich – force controlled single cell analysis. This secondment will rely on the FluidFM technology. You will employ an atomic force microscope (AFM) based on hollow cantilevers for local liquid dispensing and stimulation of single living cells under physiological conditions. 

• University of Twente – micro and nanofluidic for single-molecule analysis. You will be exposed to microfabricated nanofluidic devices and their use in sensitive singleentity electrochemical detection experiments. 

• Elements – Development of CMOS potentiostats. You will learn fabrication of portable potentiostats using microchips (ASICs) and standard CMOS processes. 

How to Apply- 
It is anticipated that the interviews for this post will take place towards the end of March via skype. The role will be based at the University of Leeds in the UK.
