PG-30 Research Assistant- Electrochemical Instruments
Contract: Full Time/Fixed Term
Tyndall National Institute - University College Cork, invites applications for a Research Assistant to develop an electrochemical instrument as part of a multiparameter sensing system for process monitoring in bioreactors. The instrument will enable real-time detection and quantification of chemical and biochemical parameters. This is an initial 12 month contract with scope for extension subject to performance and funding secured. Salary is based on the Irish University Association (IUA) scale and based on experience.
The Tyndall National Institute is a world leader in the development of sensor systems for use in life sciences applications. Working closely with a global range of academic, business and clinical partners, our technology is under evaluation by several multinational corporations and is approaching market readiness in a number of areas. In parallel, Tyndall has an ambitious ‘ICT for Health’ strategy that will leverage our core strengths in Information and Communications Technologies to develop the next generation of breakthrough sensing systems for biopharma and medtech. There is a growing demand for smart integrated process analytical technologies for biopharma applications. These sensing systems need to be capable of performing multiparameter continuous monitoring over extended periods within miniaturised, sterile and low cost disposable systems. This research is focused on the development and validation of electrochemical sensing devices, compatible with measuring a range of analytes and biomarkers as part of an autonomous integrated system. These systems need to locally process the captured data, perform preliminary analysis where applicable, and then communicate the relevant data to the relevant process monitoring system.
