The lab of Professor Sahika Inal is looking for a postdoc with a PhD in physics, chemistry, electrical engineering or related areas specialized in electrochemistry, organic electronics and/or organic bioelectronics.

Our research is about the coupling of organic electronic materials with biological systems. We aim to develop electronic devices that can interface with living systems and detect or treat diseases in ways that have not been possible before. These devices might include an implant that goes into the heart and regulates the heartbeat or when placed in the brain, via delivery of drugs or electrical stimulation, alleviates symptoms of a neurological disorder. They can as well pick up biological signals and translate these into electrical information, forming the basis of a biosensor. The success of these devices, however, depends on how well the electronics communicate with the biological system. And materials that enable communication between these two worlds are the key to building high-performance devices.

The candidate is expected to:

  • Conduct research on electrolyte gated electrochemical or field effect transistors, ionic and electronic charge conduction
  • develop electrochemical sensors
  • Develop methods to monitor processes and polymer properties during device operation.
  • Create processing methods for the existing materials to improve properties
  • Coordinate experiments with scientists specializing in other fields. Evaluates new technologies to enhance or complement current research.
  • Develop device fabrication protocols.

The other requirements are:

The candidate must know about transistor physics and sensors. They have critical thinking skills, the bandwidth to design and lead experiments, strong publication record, a broad overview of the existing literature, and the ability to work well independently and as part of a team. Contact Prof. Sahika to verify your eligibility.

Applications should include:

  • Cover letter
  • CV including list of publications
  • Copy of official academic transcripts
  • contact information of 3 academic references
