To develop biosensors using biology in our OnePlanet Research Center in Wageningen.
As an Optical / Electrical Biosensor Engineer you will develop and design the optical and/or electrical readout of a cellular biosensor. A cellular biosensor comprises a detector surface that contains cellular organisms that recognize the biomolecules of interest plus an electrical or optical readout of these cells. The cells on the detector surface convert difficult-to-measure molecules to signals that are easier to measure units, for example, light. The cell’s DNA contains instructions set for the cell to which molecule it needs to respond and the type of signal it should generate. With the continuous increasing in-depth understanding of cellular biology and the expanding synthetic biology toolbox with the high-end electrical and integrated optical sensor technology of imec, these types of sensors will reach the level of real applications.
