Post-doctoral researcher in First-principles electrochemistry at  Aalto University, Finland: Applications are welcomed for a post-doctoral position on computational modeling of electrochemical biomolecule detection.

General Information: The research will be carried out at Aalto University, Finland in Microsystem Technology group (headed by Associate professor Tomi Laurila, http://eea.aalto.fi/en/research/microsystem/) 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.

Major tasks / Responsibilities:

  • 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.

Requirements / qualifications:

Salary: 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.

If you are interested in applying the position, please send your application using the online recruitment system (link below).

Application procedure: Application should include the following documents:

  • Cover letter
  • CV
  • List of publications and a PDF’s of your 5 main publications
  • Doctoral degree certificate
  • Letters of recommendation (max. 2)

Recommended document file type is .pdf. Name your documents as follows:

lastname_firstname_filename_YYYY-MM-DD.pdf (eg. smith_john_cv_2013-07-04.pdf)

Further information: For more information please contact Professor Tomi Laurila or Dr. Miguel Caro. In recruitment process related questions contact HR Coordinator Jaana Hänninen.
