Post-doc in Paper-Based Diagnostics

The group is looking for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position to work on an exciting and ambitious research on biomarker preconcentration in paper-based analytical devices.

Point-of-care testing devices enable rapid, affordable, and widely accessible diagnosis, but their limited sensitivity makes them inappropriate for the diagnosis of early-stage diseases. To address this ongoing technological challenge, this EPSRC-funded project aims to introduce a radically new concept for biomarker preconcentration by exploiting colloid transport mechanisms based on interfacial and electrokinetic phenomena. 

The position is due to commence in October 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter. The post is fixed term for 18 months.

The research will be run in close collaboration with Global Access Diagnostics – a leading developer of lateral flow assays and rapid diagnostic technologies.
