Postdoctoral Fellowship in A*STAR SERC‐TSRP project
"Quantum Dot‐Based Microfluidic Device for Determining the Etiology of Rhinitis"
We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow with a background in molecular biology or bioengineering to work on an interdisciplinary SERC‐TSRP project - to develop a cost‐effective, robust diagnostic platform for identifying the pathogenic causes of rhinitis, which currently suffers from long lead times, limited coverage and/or excessive cost. Our approach employs large‐scale integrated (LSI) microfluidics and highly fluorescent semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) in tandem with polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification‐based pathogen detection schemes. The resulting diagnostics platform is expected to assist physicians in diagnosing the cause of flu‐like respiratory conditions more accurately, thereby prescribing the necessary treatment and risk management more effectively.
Ph.D. (or to receive Ph.D. within 3 months) in molecular biology, biochemistry or related field from an established research university.
Be proficient in English.
Experience in developing and conducting cell-based and non cell-based in vitro assays.
