The University of New Hampshire is a major research institution, providing comprehensive, high-quality undergraduate programs and graduate programs of distinction. UNH is located in Durham on a 188-acre campus, 60 miles north of Boston and 8 miles from the Atlantic coast, and is convenient to New Hampshire's lakes and mountains. There is a student enrollment of 13,000 students, with a full-time faculty of over 600, offering 90 undergraduate and more than 70 graduate programs.

Summary of Position

The Center of Integrated Biomedical and Bioengineering Research (CIBBR) at the University of New Hampshire (UNH) has an opening for a postdoctoral fellowship position available for immediate start. The CIBBR is an NIH-funded multi-disciplinary research team consisting of faculty members in biology, psychology, genetics, biochemistry, chemical engineering, and electrical engineering. The Center also works closely with our external collaborators including Harvard, the Broad Institute, and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

Implantable electrodes for multi-analyte detection of neurotransmitters: The principal investigator of this project is Edward Song in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UNH. This project will focus on developing a microscale implantable sensing device for measuring multiple neurotransmitters (such as dopamine, serotonin, norepinephrine, etc.) in the brain. The eventual goal is to be able to apply this technology for in vivo measurement for extended periods of time for studying neurological/mental disorders and understanding the signaling mechanisms within the brain. The project will also involve proof-of-concept testing of the developed microelectrodes under the microfluidic environment prior to the in vivo experiments. In addition to expertise in electrochemical sensors, a prospective candidate should also have a strong background in microfabrication, neurotransmitters detection, microfluidics, BioMEMS, and lab-on-a-chip systems.

Acceptable Minimum Qualifications

An ideal candidate should hold a Ph.D. in engineering, chemistry, or a related field and have experience in electrochemistry.
