Postdoc in Plant Bioelectronics
The project’s main goal is to develop organic bioelectronic technologies for monitoring and influencing plant physiology to enable new discoveries in plant science. The Postdoc will fabricate devices using standard microfabrication techniques and additive manufacturing and will integrate the devices into plant model systems and perform studies related to plant responses on environmental stress. The Postdoc will be responsible for growing and taking care of plants in our controlled growth facilities. The research has interdisciplinary character including material-device characterization and plants integration. The postdoc will work closely with collaborators specialized in plant biology. As postdoc, you will principally carry out research. Read more: Postdoc in Plant Bioelectronics. Last day to apply is December 13, 2023.
Postdoc in Sustainable biohybrid living materials and devices
The project’s main goal is to harness biological processes to enable living characteristics in technological systems. The postdoc will develop biohybrid living materials and devices based on photosynthetic organisms with responsive and evolving characteristics. The postdoc will develop methods for integrating plants and plant components to materials systems/devices that have evolving electrical and mechanical properties and respond to physical or chemical stimuli. One main aspect of the project is to functionalize plant components with organic electronic and stimuli responsive materials and to develop addressing and redout platforms. The research has interdisciplinary character including material-device characterization and plant biology. The postdoc will work closely with collaborators specialized in chemistry and plant biology. The project is funded by Dr. Stavrinidou’s ERC-Starting Grant 4D-PhytoHybrid. As postdoc, you will principally carry out research.

Postdoc in Soft Neural Interfaces for In Vivo Electrophysiology
Soft Electronics group is currently developing an ultra-soft neural interface technology. The postdoc will collaborate with material and fabrication specialists within the group to develop, evaluate and explore soft neural interfaces for the peripheral nervous system and potentially the central nervous system. The postdoc will lead the small animal work by designing experiments, adapting the electrodes for implantation, develop implantation and fixation procedures, perform implantations, and analyze electrophysiology recordings. The work will be performed in collaboration with Prof. Simon Farnebo at the Linköping University Hospital. The work is part of an ERC CoG project and will be highly collaborative.

Assistant professor in Materials Science with focus on Organic Functional Materials for Sustainability
This Assistant Professorship focuses on research in the field of organic functional materials with the aim of developing and advancing sustainable materials, methods, devices, and technologies. Placement will be at LOE at Linköping University’s Department of Science and Technology, located on the river Motala Ström at Campus Norrköping.
With the help of a very competitive start-up package including funding for two PhD students, two postdocs, and own salary; state-of-the-art facilities; and an environment characterized by strong internal and international collaboration, the applicant is expected to establish and maintain an independent research program in organic functional materials for sustainability which complements and expands LOE’s current research activities.

Postdoctoral Scholarship in Evolvable soft neural electrodes
The aim of the project is to develop a novel neural interface technology based on soft and deformable conductors and functional materials. A new concept around in situ evolvable neural interfaces will be explored to find novel solutions for integrating soft electronics into tissue while minimizing insertion damage. The research will include materials and devices based on soft and elastic electronic composite materials to facilitate close integration with neural tissue and thereby enabling the translation between biological and electronic signals. Functional materials and probes for in situ actuation, e.g. magnetic composites, will be developed together with methods for controlled actuation. Devices will be fabricated with an inhouse state-of-the-art laser micromachining system. The developed devices will first be evaluated in vitro and finally in vivo with external collaborators.
