We wish to appoint a talented researcher to undertake research in the field of biosensor development for real-time personal health monitoring in collaboration with ULTRA-PCS in a project funded by the EPSRC Impact Acceleration Award. This is a 12-month full-time appointment with 1.0 FTE.
This project aims to develop sensors that can non-invasively monitor an individual’s health. These biomedical sensors will be capable of monitoring key physiological parameters (lactate and ions in sweat, for instance) that together may indicate stress, dehydration, shock, etc. To ensure the trustworthiness of the data being used in decision-making, the sensors will be developed to incorporate biomorphic principles, that is the ability to monitor the performance/degradation of the sensor itself and adapt accordingly.
Much of the sensor development will be conducted using the facilities within the Chemistry Department and the School of Engineering at Lancaster University, with the industrial partner supporting this activity and leading on sensor integration. Your required tasks include:
The Chemistry Department and the School of Engineering at Lancaster University has excellent research laboratories and associated research facilities to support the experimental development of the sensors, their integration and demonstration of the technology.
You must hold a PhD or have equivalent experience in electronic or mechatronics engineering, chemistry or equivalent. The position is available to engineers/scientists with experience of developing sensors.
This is a fixed term, full time post.
