MiCRA Biodiagnostics has an exciting research position for a Sensor Development Scientist: Design and engineering work on electrochemical sensors and fluidics for development of TOXOR Biosensor Technology: Application to water industry toxicity testing.


The role requires an enthusiastic and creative scientist with practical knowledge and experience in electrochemical sensor development. TOXOR has a fish-cell bioreactor in a fluidic line with an array of electrode-based sensors which detect and quantify enzyme reaction products and assess the metabolism of living cells before and after exposure to water-borne toxic agents.


The scientist will be involved in the development of TOXOR; “response-critical” sensor components of TOXOR - enzyme-responsive sensor and detection of oxygen metabolism, integration of electronic sensors with a bioreactor - basic microfluidics-sensor prototypes. Sensor optimisation and working prototype with correlated analytical performance for water analysis. The Sensor scientist is expected to work closely with the project team, gateway staff and collaborators to advance TOXOR Technology
