Description

The CEITEC Bioelectronics research team is seeking an outstanding applicant for a scientific position as a postdoctoral research fellow. The postdoctoral scholar shall work with the development of bioelectronic devices and materials, in particular focusing on implantable biomedical devices. The research will feature microfabrication techniques in a cleanroom environment, and fabrication and testing devices for neural recording and stimulation. Close collaboration with neuroscientists and pre-clinical researchers is envisioned. The postdoctoral fellow will have the unique opportunity to work with state-of-the-art nano- and microfabrication facilities and electrophysiology laboratories (see nano.ceitec.cz).

Expectations:

  • Ability to carry out research projects independently, interpret data, and write manuscripts.
  • Excellent team working skills, self-motivation, initiative and persistence.
  • Ability to exploit CEITEC BUT core facilities and laboratories (nano.ceitec.cz).
