The candidate will be recruited in the BioMEMS team at IEMN as part of the Photonics 4 Society CPER project.
She/he will continue to develop our enzymatic activity sensors which are based on microfabricated biopolymer arrays


She/he will conduct validation tests as well as the extension of the enzymatic activity detectable with our sensors.
In particular, she/he will be tasked to demonstrate the applicability of our technology to the biomedical field and, more specifically, to the proteolytic activity.


- A PhD in plant biochemistry , polymer chemistry or related topics
- A good knowledge of protein chemistry
- A working knowledge of gel and hydrogel formation using proteins or polysaccharides
- A practical experience of rheology and gels characterisation
- Being acquainted to ink jet printing or clean room microfabrication would be an advantage

Work Context

The research will be dévelloped at IEMN under the support of the CPER "Photonics for Society". IEMN is one of the four large micro/nano fabrication platform in France. It therefore has a fully equiped cleanroom (1600m2) to fabricate and characterise sub-micron scale structures.
During the last 5 years, we have developed a novel types of enzymatic activity array. It relies on our microfabrication and optics expertise. This technology is now been transferred to a start-up (Zymoptiq).
The candidate will work in IEMN in close proximity to both he academic staff and the Zymoptiq's team.
