Postdoctoral Research Fellow Level 1 or 2


The Bionanoscienc Laboratory at UCD has developed a set of novel superparamagnetic microparticles for the separation of high value biomolecules from complex matrices. This Enterprise Ireland funded postdoctoral fellowship will focus on the production of superparamagnetic particles and on developing novel surface chemistries for the isolation of specific biological molecules for high throughput and large-scale separation technologies. The fellow will concentrate initally on the scale-up of the production of highly uniform superparamagnetic particles using the technology described in the articles below.  This will involve optimization of the processessing conditions and equipment and scaling-up of the process for surface functionilisation.  The fellow will subsequently engage in the design and optimization of novel polymer surface chemistries and bioconjugation for the separation of specific biomolecules with our industrial partners.

The candidate should have a Ph.D. in  Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, or Biotechnology, and have a demonstrated ability to modify and characterize surfaces with polymer and biomolecular chemistries.   The fellow should be able to use a range of surface and bioanalytical characterization techniques including dynamic light scattering, flow cytometry, ellipsometry, transmission electron microscopy, mass spectroscopy, and advanced spectrosocpy including NMR. Experience with atom-transfer radical-polymerizatoin, silane surface chemistries, and bioconjugation chemistry would be highly valuable
