Post-doctoral researcher in First-principles electrochemistry, Aalto University, Finland. Applications are welcomed for a post-doctoral position on computational modeling of electrochemical biomolecule detection. The research will be carried out at Aalto University, Finland in Microsystem Technology group (headed by Associate professor Tomi Laurila)

General Information: At the Department of Electrical Engineering and Automation in close collaboration with Centre of Excellence in Computational Nanoscience (Dr. Miguel Caro). Microsystem Technology group focuses on the development of hybrid nanocarbon electrodes with high sensitivity and selectivity towards detection of neurotransmitters, in particular dopamine. Dopamine plays a major role in a number of neurological disorders, such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease, and improving our detection capability for this substance is of major scientific and technological interest. This work is done in an eminently multidisciplinary international collaboration with a wide network of researchers in materials chemistry, nanofabrication and characterization, analytical electrochemistry, biomaterials science, and neuroscience.

In order to complement and guide the experimental work, computational atomistic simulations are heavily utilized. This task is carried out in close collaboration with several groups in Centre of Excellence in Computational Nanoscience (COMP). The present project consists of applying computational approaches, such as molecular dynamics simulations to develop and improve our understanding of the interaction between biomolecules and amorphous carbon (a-C) electrodes at the atomic level. The project will target phenomena such as adsorption and electron transfer, and developing a combined theoretical and experimental strategy towards gaining fundamental insight into these processes.

Essential requirements:

Alto University: The position will be located at the Aalto University, Otaniemi Campus at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Automation located in Micronova. Aalto University is a community of bold thinkers in the fields of technology, business, art and design. The university has six schools with nearly 20 000 students and 4 700 employees, 390 of which are professors.

Salary is based on the university salary scheme. The contract includes occupational health care. The position is contract-based. The post-doctoral position is for two year period.
