The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network BioInspireSensing invites applications for 11 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs). The positions are full-time and funded for 36 months. Earliest starting date is September 2021. Exact starting date depends of the recruiting institution and could be negotiable after selection, always before December 31st 2021.

The BioInspireSensing project is a trans-national training network inaugurated to train PhD students, in investigating, building, and producing a new generation of bioinspired implantable sensors for pressure, temperature and acidity. New devices will apply the state-of-the-art in ion channel proteins, cell membrane transport, membrane biology and vesicles,

tethered planar lipid bilayers, synthetic biochemistry and biodegradable and flexible conducting polymers to obtain novel sensors that are fully biocompatible and bioresorbable, unlike most of existing implantable sensors. The consortium aims for, a new generation of sensors that would not require posterior surgical extraction. BioInspireSensing will take advantage of a unique multi-sectorial and multi-field environment to further teach early stage researchers (ESR) to apply the gained knowledge in analyzing and designing/engineering complex biological nanosensors of medical importance. BioInspireSensing includes a unique combination of research training, industry placements, as well as courses and workshops on scientific and complementary soft skills.

We are currently looking for motivated PhD candidates with an academic background in chemistry, biochemistry, biophysics, computational biology, bioengineering and electrical engineering to join the BioInspireSensing training network!

The ESRs will join one of eleven research projects at BioInspireSensing, supported by thirteen academic and industrial institutions forming the network which are spread over seven countries.
