Research Fellow (Bioelectronics)

Date: 28 Mar 2024

Location: COLLEGE OF DESIGN & ENG, Kent Ridge Campus, SG

Company: National University of Singapore

Job Description

The laboratory of Presidential Young Professor Liu Yuxin in the Biomedical Engineering Department at National University of Singapore seeks a postdoctoral Research Fellow with strong enthusiasm and interest in flexible electronics, ingestible electronics, bioelectronics, neurotechnology, brain-machine-interface research.
 
Biological systems are typically soft and highly dynamic with cellular growth and functional self-renewal, while conventional implantable electronics are rigid and unable to intelligently accommodate a complex biological microenvironment, leading to the enormous functional and biomechanical gap at the bio-electronics interface. Through electronic material development and nano/microfabrication innovation, we will develop next-generation electronic materials and microelectronics that mimic the properties of biological tissue, while providing chronic and high-bandwidth communication at human body. In this project, we will develop ingestible electronics for medical applications.
