Post Doctoral Fellowship in Microfluidics, CSIRO Australia (Ref. 2007/689)

The Micro Analysis System group located at the Division of Manufacturing and Materials Technology, CSIRO Australia, is looking to recruit a highly motivated and creative Post Doctoral Fellow to undertake a program of research as part of the CSIRO CybernoseT Project for the Food Futures Flagship.

The project focuses on the development of new technologies for pattern recognition of volatile odorants. The key concept is to build a new generation of electronic noses in which the sensors are the proteins used by simple animals to detect and recognise odours. The main research will be focused on the development of a microfluidic device which provides the sampling and detection platforms for the Cybernose project.

The successful applicant will work with the Micro Analysis Systems group and a team including molecular biologists and chemists, located in Canberra to solve challenges in developing a robust transduction system.

You will have a recognised PhD in physics or engineering, awarded within the last 3 years, along with an excellent understanding of fluid dynamics theory and optical detection methods experience in fluid flow experimentation, preferably in microfluids and microfluidic chip fabrication. Excellent oral and written communication skills are essential and some knowledge of biology would be desirable.
