Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Bioelectronics (2 Posts)


Grade 7: £34,308 - £42,155 per annum

Closing date

Feb 03, 2023 12:00PM


We are seeking two full-time Postdoctoral Research Assistants to join the Bioelectronics research group at the Department of Engineering Science (Headington).  The positions are funded by the BBSRC and are fixed-term for up to 12 months.


The researchers will work with Professor Christopher Proctor to develop prototype bioelectronic technologies for interfacing with the nervous system. The emerging field of “bioelectronics” provides a novel intervention by sensing and electrically stimulating the nervous system. This project will push capacity to further include electronically controlled pharmaceutical release into bioelectronic systems.  You will be responsible for microfabrication of bioelectronic technologies, development of materials for bioelectronic applications and optimization of bioelectronic devices for selective and controlled drug release.


You should hold a relevant PhD (or be near completion) in fields such as biomedical, electrical or materials engineering. You should have proven competence in microfabrication techniques for biomedical technologies and evidence of working well as part of a busy multidisciplinary research team.  Experience with microfluidics and/or drug delivery systems will be beneficial. 


Informal enquiries may be addressed to Professor Christopher Proctor (
