Assistant Professor in Sensor Technology for Environmental Analysis
Sensor technology is an important research field at the Department of Bioscience, where several sensors for analysis of aquatic environments have been developed and used in research over the past decades. Emphasis has until now been on development and use of microscale electrochemical sensors and biosensors. The successful candidate will be part of the Section for Microbiology and will be affiliated with a newly established interdisciplinary Aarhus University Center for Water Technology which encompass research on limnic waters, groundwater, and wastewater.
The successful candidate is expected to contribute to the development of new sensors and their use in environmental research and to engage extensively in collaborations with other staff members in the group as well as across the departments involved in the interdisciplinary AU Center for Water Technology. Furthermore, the candidate will take part in all aspects of a university position, including research, fund raising and administration, and must participate in the teaching of courses on both undergraduate and graduate level and in the supervision of Bachelor, Master and PhD students.
The candidate must have a relevant PhD degree and minimum 2 years of relevant postdoc experience demonstrating experience with sensor development and environmental analysis at a high international level. Furthermore, applicants are also expected to document their experience with all facets of university teaching and supervision.
