The Technical University of Denmark, DTU Health Technology is inviting for four postdoctoral researchers to work on SERS-based Detection, Microfluidics, Raman Instrumentation and Software Development for Therapeutic Drug Monitoring. The project is part of the BioInnovation Institute (BII) Faculty program, which is a collaboration between BII and DTU and is aimed to create a unique interdisciplinary environment focused on commercialization that can foster novel ideas and lead to new spin-outs.

About the project:
  • The project is placed at BII, which will be the primary workplace of the postdoctoral researcher, however he or she will have a strong integration with the IDUN research group, led by Prof. Anja Boisen at DTU Department of Health Technology.
  • The postdoctoral researchers will work in an interdisciplinary team that employs SERS for detection and quantification of drugs in body fluids (e.g. human blood plasma) where sample pre-treatment is key.
  • Candidate will focus on (i) development of SERS-based assay and sample pretreatment approaches; (ii) adaptation and integration of the assay protocol in microfluidic and (iii) instrument and software development.

The projects:

  1. Postdoc in Quantitative Electrochemically assisted SERS-based Detection (starting date 1 June 2021 or according to mutual agreement)
  2. Postdoc in Quantitative SERS-based Detection of Drugs from Biological Fluids (starting date 1 October 2021 or according to mutual agreement)
  3. Postdoc in Integration of SERS-based Assays in Microfluidics (starting date 1 November 2021 or according to mutual agreement)
  4. Postdoc in Development of Tabletop Raman Detection System and Data Analysis Software (starting date 1 November 2021 or according to mutual agreement)


  • Applicant must hold PhD degree or equivalent in the field of electronic, optical, mechanical engineering, analytical chemistry, engineering, electrochemistry.
  • Experience (at least 4 years) in development of electrochemical assays and sensors.
  • Highly preferred: experience in clean-room fabrication processes (e.g. electrode fabrication).
  • Experience with quantitative SERS-based detection and microfluidics is a plus.
  • Experience working in multidisciplinary teams, self-motivation, responsible conduct of experimental work and good organizational skills are a must.
  • Previous experience in research and development after PhD is an additional plus.
  • Highly preferred: previous experience in the development of Raman systems and experience programing in Delphi and/or C++.
