The Mission:
In the EU-funded research project GLUMON, we aim to leverage a new class of a biomedical optoacoustic sensor to offer the next generation in-blood non-invasive biochemical sensing in-vivo, thus addressing the limitations of existing biomedical sensors. A driving innovation is the ability to reject signal/data contamination from the skin surface and non-invasively detect glucose directly in vasculature-rich skin layers, effectively offering in-blood glucose monitoring abilities.
The successful candidate will develop and apply data analysis methods for quantitative non-invasive glucose determination of glucose in human skin--a work that aims at improving the lives of millions of diabetic patients worldwide. The development process will give the successful candidate the opportunity to strengthen her/his skills in optics, lasers, and computation, but also in biological systems relevant to biosensing. The successful applicant will be involved at every stage of sensor design and simulation, testing, and application, as well as with dissemination of results in the form of scientific publications, presentations, intellectual property production, spin-offs, and commercialization.

Your profile:
The successful applicant must have the following:

  • A Master degree in Computational Science, Physics, Optics, Engineering, Medical Technology or a related discipline.
  • Excellent academic study record o Strong motivation, scientific curiosity, and commitment to scientific excellence.
  • Excellent programming skills (for example: Matlab, LabView, C/C++, Python, etc.)
  • Team player skills and enthusiasm to work in a multi-disciplinary, collaborative environment.
  • Excellent command of the English language.

The following qualifications are considered advantageous:
  • Proven experience in experimental research
  • Basic knowledge of microscopic imaging
  • Practical experience with laser-based optical systems
  • Practical experience in hardware control, data acquisition and synchronization, system development and integration
