Reporting to the Head of Biophotonics, the position of Researcher will be expected to work on chemical aspects of the projects in the SFI award. These will mainly include surface-enhanced Raman scattering of body fluids and targeting chemistry for upconverting nanoparticle based diagnostics and manipulation. In the role there will also be tasks supporting the rest of the team, and other team member’s projects.
The candidate is expected to be creative, self-motivated, and should help create an efficiently and friendly atmosphere within the Biophotonics team and beyond to all teams at IPIC and Tyndall. These positions will offer great opportunities for learning and to become internationally visible as the successful candidates will be part of building a new centre for biophotonics with a potential to become a key player in the field and with excellent infrastructure support.
Reporting to the Head of Biophotonics and or his/her nominee, the Researcher will conduct specified pieces of research as directed. The role of the Researcher will be mainly, but not exclusively, to carry out strategic research activities in order to delivery specific research objectives and outputs. The Researcher will also act as translator in a multidisciplinary research field: of research questions as well as of industry and academic research needs and capabilities; such that highly structured and well defined research projects can be devised, set up and executed. The researcher will be expected to participate in full collaborative projects.
