Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Biosensors
Project title: Cross-reactive Sensor Array for Metabolomic Diagnostics

Cross-reactive sensing is a signature-based profiling technique; multiple biomarkers are monitored simultaneously for disease diagnosis. As part of this project, a novel ex vivo cross-reactive sensor array will be developed, tested, and evaluated. The new sensor array will be trained to detect a chemical profile associated with Major Depressive Disorder by creating a blood sample assay. Eventually, we will adapt this technology to other diseases as well. In general, our lab hopes to develop low-cost and high-throughput ex vivo point-of-care diagnostic tools.

This position is to work in Prof. Jeffrey M. Halpern's Surface Enhanced Electrochemical Diagnostic Sensors (SEEDS) Laboratory and is affiliated with the Center of Integrated Biomedical and Bioengineering Research (CIBBR). 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.

The ideal candidate should hold a Ph.D. in engineering, chemistry, or a related field, and the candidate will have experience in one or more of the following areas: Electrochemistry, surface chemistry and analysis, sensor development, multivariate analysis, biosensors, and metabolomics and is expected to work both independently and in a team environment.
