The BioInspireSensing project is a trans-national training network inaugurated to train PhD students, in investigating, building, and producing a new generation of bioinspired implantable sensors of pressure, temperature and acidity. 11 PhD position are open in the BioInspireSensing project.

About the project:
  • New devices will be made of complex hybrid materials, composed of natural molecules and synthetic biopolymers, with the additional properties of being fully biocompatible and bioresorbable, unlike most of existing implantable sensors; anticipating thus, a new generation of sensors that would not require posterior surgical extraction.
  • BioInspireSensing is offering three-year fellowships starting in the 2021 academic year and funded by the ITN- Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions call of the European Commission.
Available projects:

ESR01 Project: Modeling engineered ion channels and their modulation: an agonist and/or antagonist study.

Host: Zymvol Biomodeling S.L. (Barcelona, Spain).

ESR02 Project: Optimizing TRP channels for use as stable thermosensors.

Host: VIB-KU Leuven (Leuven, Belgium).

ESR07 Project: Development of new flexible and biodegradable conducting polymers in biosensors.

Host: Polytechnic University of Catalonia (Barcelona, Spain).

ESR08 Project: Structural and functional characterization of ion channels embedded in planar lipid bilayers.

Host: University of Warsaw (Warsaw, Poland).

ESR09 Project: Development of sensor testing platform based on cell culturing and microfluidic technologies.

Host: 4Dcell SAS (Paris, France).

  • Candidates must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the recruiting beneficiary for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the recruitment date. Short stays, such as holidays, are not considered, at the time of recruitment.
  • At the time of recruitment by the hosting institution, the selected candidate is in the first four years (full‐time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and has not been awarded a doctoral degree. This is measured from the date when they obtained the master’s degree, or an equivalent degree.
  • Applicants are not eligible if they have already been awarded a PhD
  • Internationally recognized English language qualifications achieved and/or selection procedures based on local regulations might be needed.
