PhD/Post-Doc Position for Bioelectronic Engineering of Mammalian Cells

The Biotechnology and Bioengineering group directed by Prof. Dr. Martin Fussenegger at the Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering of the ETH Zurich in Basel has an open
PhD/Post-Doc Position for Bioelectronic Engineering of Mammalian Cells
The Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering (D-BSSE) is the first truly interdisciplinary research unit of the ETH Zurich where theory, experimental biology and engineering groups team up to foster advances in Systems Biology, Biotechnology and Synthetic Biology. With its headquarter in Basel, Switzerland, the D-BSSE is situated in the heart of the Biovalley, a tri-national region hosting 40% of the global life science industry including several pharma giants, which provides a unique environment for high-leverage translational research.
For a new initiative in Synthetic Biology-Inspired Treatment Strategies we are looking for PhD and PostDoc candidates who have a strong background in electrical engineering and bioelectronics to design bioelectronic devices that interface with human cells and program their behavior for biomedical applications. Using state-of-the-art Synthetic Biology principles, bioelectronic devices and human designer cells will merge to shape the treatment strategies of the future. Please consult our current work for further information: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=fussenegger+m.
The successful candidates are exceptionally motivated and highly skilled to work at the interface of electrical and genetic engineering. S/he is capable of designing or implementing low-power low-noise bioelectronic and sensor interface circuitry to produce bioelectronic devices that will bidirectionally interact with human cells. We expect an outstanding study record (PhD students) and publication record (Post-Docs) as well as the ambition to pursue an academic career or initiate spin-off activities.
We look forward to receiving your online application including CV, full study record, publication list, a motivation letter and two letters of recommendation. Please note that we exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal. Applications via email or postal services will not be considered.
