Junior postdoctoral researcher for development of rapid diagnostic tests for malaria (department of travel medicine)

ISGlobal is seeking a junior postdoctoral researcher who is interested in joining the project G-SensMalaria. The overall project goal is to develop a multiplexed aptamer-based electrochemical sensor for the diagnosis and prognosis of malaria in international travellers. The project is a collaboration between private and public institutions, including GraphenicaLab and Eurecat. We are specifically looking for someone with a strong electrochemical or biotechnological background. Priority will be given to those candidates with experience in the development of biosensors, with knowledge on aptamers and proven scientific production.

The selected candidate will join the multidisciplinary research group led by Prof. Muñoz in the area of Malaria and Other Infections Diseases and Travel Medicine. The group’s activities range from basic epidemiological and biotechnological research to clinical interventions and patient management (working with the International Travel Service of the Hospital Clinic of Barcelona). For this particular position the candidate will report directly to Dr. Parolo, a biotechnologist with over 15 years of experience in the development of rapid diagnostic tests.
