    A PhD degree in Analytical Chemistry is required with at least two years’ experience after the PhD and experience training scientists in electrochemical methods and microscopy. The candidate must have experience in the design, fabrication, and application of carbon electrodes to analysis of vesicles or other cellular organelles and must have experience training scientists in electrochemical methods and microscopy. Furthermore, we seek a person with experience in the analysis of catecholamines and non-electroactive molecules with ultrasmall biosensors. These areas are essential to the success of this project as well as the group operation and applicants must have experience to be considered eligible.

    Responsibilities/ Job Description

    The job assignments mainly include planning, designing and carrying out research to develop electrochemistry at carbon electrodes and development of novel biosensors to measure substances exiting vesicles during vesicle impact electrochemical cytometry.

    About Research project

    We are seeking a person to contribute to a strong research program and add value to the on-going research in the Ewing laboratory at the University of Gothenburg. The topic of the work will be chemical measurements with nanoelectrochemistry using biosensors and naked carbon electrodes. These tools will be applied to analysis of the contents of neurotransmitter vesicles. The goal is to understand the structure and dynamics of the pore that opens in a nanometer vesicle on an electrode surface. The project will also involve using these methods for analysis of how molecular crowding affects the opening of the vesicle pore.

    About Department of Chemistry and Molecular Biology
