Postdoc Position in Rapid Diagnostic Technology at Imperial College London

Imperial College London is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a new opening postdoctoral position in microelectronics. Applications are welcome before January 21, 2019.

The Imperial College Infection Technology group led by Dr. Pantelis Georgiou is recruiting for an exciting new RA position within the area of rapid diagnostic technology. The aim of the project is to design a portable rapid diagnostic system for detection of infectious diseases using CMOS microelectronic technology. The detection platform combines microchip technology and isothermal amplification to deliver a novel solution capable of detecting pathogenic DNA/RNA in a mobile system at the point-of-care. This is a multidisciplinary project which combines Engineering and Medicine and targets infectious diseases in Low-Middle Income countries such as Tuberculosis, Dengue and Malaria.

The main aim of the post-holder is to further develop and optimize the isothermal chemistry for detection of infectious diseases, as well as to work closely with existing PhD students and RAs in the group towards the realization of rapid point-of-care devices using CMOS technology in addition to their clinical validation. This is an exciting opportunity that may have a large impact in the field of infectious diseases.

– Loop-mediate isothermal amplification primer design – Experience with CMOS microelectronic systems – Experience in infectious disease diagnostics – Phylogenetic analysis/ Bioinformatics – Experience in conducting clinical trials *Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range 33,380 to 35,061 per annum.
