A-Sense Lab at the Department of Bioscience Engineering in the Faculty of Science of the University of Antwerp (Belgium)is looking for a full-time (100%) postdoc position in electrochemistry and data analysis.

The overall goal of this postdoc position is the development of advanced data models to extract qualitative and quantitative information from electrochemical data. These data models will improve the state-of-the-art in (bio)electrochemical sensing, to make an impact in e.g. cancer diagnosis, on-site illicit drug or explosives sensing and infectious disease diagnostics. It is crucial that the information extracted from the electrochemical data is maximized to achieve high accuracies.

This postdoc position offers the unique opportunity to combine lab work with data analysis, to record novel datasets, and software development, to process and design novel data strategies using existing and novel datasets. Overall, this postdoc position will positively impact society by pushing electrochemical applications in health care and law enforcement to a higher level by making an impact in an underexplored, yet more crucial than ever, part of the technology.
