Marie Curie Development Host Fellowship (Heilbad Heiligenstadt)

Funded by the EC grant “Marie Curie Development Host Fellowship” we
offer experienced scientists the opportunity to work on measuring methods
basing on electric impedance on the one hand and in research on
electrokinetical phenomena on the other hand. The research results shall be
applied in a new high throughput system basing on a segmented-flow
principle. It is the goal of the project to apply this new high throughput
system to detect and manipulate biological cells and/or metabolites in
various applications in life sciences.

The Institute for Bioprocessing and Analytical Measurement Techniques
(iba) in Heilbad Heiligenstadt is an extramural research institute of
the state of Thuringia in Germany. Current research topics are besides
others application of microsystems and microtechniques for investigations
on high throughput systems and on measurement techniques in life
sciences. Additionally, the investigation of the interfaces between
biological ambiences and technical systems represents a research topic of iba.

The Institute for Bioprocessing and Analytical Measurement Techniques
intends to establish a project team comprising of experienced scientists
from December 1st 2006.

Following positions are available:

a very experienced scientist

The successful candidate holds a Ph.D (excellent certification) and has
at least more than ten years of experiences on the field of described
research topics. The candidate will be responsible for the research
activities and will guide the project team. Starting on December 1st 2006
the position will be funded in total 10 month over a period of four
years.

an experienced scientist (postdoc)

Also starting on December 1st 2006 the position of the experienced
scientist will be valid for a period of 24 month.

During this first project period the candidate will concentrate on
conceptual investigations, will develop microstructures for electric
impedance measurements as well as for electrokinetics and will establish
laboratory prototypes.

The Institute for Bioprocessing and Analytical Measurement Techniques
will place its extensive, high sophisticated equipment and its
experiences in bioprocessing and measurement techniques at the candidates’
disposal.

Since the project will be funded by the EC grant „Marie Curie
Development Host Fellowship“, candidates are asked to look up the criteria of
eligibility for fellows at http://www.cordis.lu/improving. Equal
opportunities, particulary between women and men are given. Send curriculum
vitae to the head of iba, Prof. Dieter Beckmann:

Institute for Bioprocessing and Analytical
Measurement Techniques (iba)
Rosenhof
D-37308 Heilbad Heiligenstadt
Germany

Application deadline: August 31st 2006
