Within the framework of BORGES, ESR5 will develop organic bioelectronic components such as organic electrochemical transistors (OECTs) for biosensing applications, and in particular label-free sensing platforms for inflammatory biomarkers in multiple sclerosis (MS). The ESR5 research will include materials and devices based on (semi)conducting polymers as well as polyelectrolyte ”ion conductors” with the aim of translating biological and electronic signals. The ESR studies will further include processing of components in a cleanroom environment, characterization of materials and electrical/ionic properties, and fundamental studies of sensing and electrochemistry.
The selection process for this position is now closed.
The position has been assigned to Dr Bernhard Burtscher.
