Joining the Biomedical Applications Group

I am very excited to announce that earlier this year I have joined the Biomedical Applications Group led by Dr. Rosa Villa. My goal is to focus my work on the development of Electrochemical sensors and biosensors for non-invasive monitoring. In addition, I aim to contribute to the group with my background in Electrochemistry, Prototyping, and Fabrication techniques.

Check out the group's activities HERE.

His project goal is to produce a redox polymer for biosensing applications, and involves a collaboration with the molecular electrochemistry group at the University Autonomous of Barcelona.

Call for incoming TECNIOspring fellows.

Enzymatic biosensors in Health and Sport.
42.915€ p.a. plus 8.640€ R&D annual budget and up to 960€ relocation package.

As part of the BioMEMS TECNIO group, we are seeking an excellent post-doctoral researcher to apply for a TECNIOspring fellowship with us. The successful candidate will work on the development of electrochemical enzyme biosensors, with a focus on the transfer of results to industry. The work stems from the DADDi2 project (TEC2013-48506-C3), aimed at the development of a new type of disposable autonomous device for the early diagnosis of Diabetes, but will be focusing on developing skin-patch biosensors for sports (lactate and glucose).

Candidates must have a strong background in Electrochemistry and at least some experience in the area of biosensors.
In addition, it is essential that the candidates:

* Hold a doctoral degree and four additional years of full-time research experience after obtaining it; or have at least eight years of full-time equivalent research experience, including the period of research training after obtaining the degree that would formally entitle them to embark on a doctorate.
* Have at least one year of experience in applied research and/or technology transfer activities (R&D projects involving industry, patent licensing, and/or spin-off creation).
* Have experience in the management of research groups.
* Researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (study/work) in Spain for more than 12 months in the 2 years immediately prior to the deadline for submission of applications (June 22nd, 2015).
