A postdoctoral scientist position is offered

Microelectronics Center of Provence (CMP) Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines de St. Etienne

Bioelectronics deals with the coupling of the worlds of electronics and biology. Tools generated in this arena, such as medical diagnostics and bioelectronic implants, are expected to greatly impact the future of healthcare and help increase the span and quality of our lives. They will also play a dominant role in modernizing agriculture and in protecting animal health, our food supply, and the environment.

The department of bioelectronics at the CMP is seeking to expand their team to work on a European Research Council grant funded for the next five years. The project is focused on the integration of barrier tissue layers with organic electronic devices for the development of new in vitro models for toxicology.

The following positionis offered: A postdoctoral scientist

You will contribute to the existing program in bioelectronics, integrating live cells with electronic devices, for the detection of pathogens and toxins. You should have a PhD in cell biology, preferably epithelial/endothelial cell biology. Familiarity with imaging and different cell culture models is required. Background in tightjunctionbiologyis a definite plus.

Candidates should submit a CV and cover letter with the contact details for three referees to the following address owens@emse.fr. The closing date for completed applications is October31st, 2012.
