Job DescriptionThe Sensors and Aerosols Laboratory in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) (Ulsan, S. Korea) is seeking to hire an outstanding post-doctoral fellow in bioaerosol and electrochemical (or optical) biosensors.
The main goals of this research group are to develop a system to capture (for bioaerosol) and detect (for electrochemical or optical biosensor) airborne biological particles such as airborne viruses and bacteria using a homemade filter or electrostatic precipitator in various environments and to inactivate bioaerosols using UV photocatalysis. This group offers a stimulating environment as well as access to state-of-the-art equipment
Ph.D. in biotechnology, biochemistry, mechanical engineering, environmental engineering, or relevant engineering field with specialization in either electrochemical or optical biosensors is required. Expertise in the bacteria and virus experiments, and microfabrication techniques would be a plus.
For bioaerosols, Ph.D. in mechanical engineering or environmental engineering that can set up the aerosol generation and collection system for measurements and may conduct computer simulation on flow and electrical fields using commercial software. They also need to work with lab mates who can make sensors for the target aerosols.
SALARY AND CONTRACT TERMS
The expected starting salary varies depending on experience and qualifications, and it will increase with responsibilities and performance over time. The contract includes occupational health and social security benefits. The starting date is negotiable. The position will be initially filled for 1yr, with possible extensions max to 3 years altogether.
