PhD – Biomimetic capture of odor molecules in microfluidic systems
Posté le 23 septembre 2016 dans Offre d'emploi, Offre d'emploi par Perrine Franquet.
Indeed, performances in odor perception of the animal kingdom outperform artificial sensors derived from micro and nano-technologies by several orders of magnitude (electronic noses, NEMS/MEMS sensors, MOX sensors). This Ph.D. position, right at the interface between biology and microtechnology aims at understanding and re-creating some of the functions observed
in mammals for capture of odors molecules in small amount, with a focus the “integrated systems” that constitutes living organisms. Indeed the work will not be centered on technological development but will rather focus on a “co-evolution” of the different system’s components. The Ph.D. student will share his time between LETI/Carnot Institute in Grenoble for the microfluidic and sensors part and Tours University/CNRS for the biological part and flux imaging experiments.
