Master Student Position in Smart Nano-Bio-Devices (Ref. MS-SS)

Application Deadline: 30/09/2018
Ref: MS-SS
The nanodevices group at the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) is looking for a Master Student to participate in a project on Biosensors for personalized biomedical diagnostics. The group develops low cost and portable sensors to non-invasively detect disease-related bio-analytes (proteins, amino acids, electrolytes, etc.) and help monitor the evolution of pathological conditions.
The student involved in this project will contribute to the fabrication and optimization of electrochemical and colorimetric biosensors aimed at monitoring a rare hereditary disease. A fully integrated sensing platform will be achieved by implementing the readout in smartphone-based technology.
