Postdoctoral Researcher Assay Development Group (m/f/d)
The NMI is a member of the Innovation Alliance Baden-Württemberg. It is involved in application-oriented research at the interface between the life sciences and material science. An interdisciplinary team of scientists is developing new technologies for companies and public research sponsors in the areas of Pharma and Biotech, Biomedicine and Materials Science, and Material Analysis and Electron Microscopy.
Within its Pharma and Biotech department, the assay development group of Dr. Markus Templin has a long track record of developing advanced immunoassay systems for research and industrial applications. Amongst other technologies, one important focus is our proprietary DigiWest® multiplex immunoassay technology that allows for parallel analyses of hundreds of proteins (www.digiwest.de). As such, this platform is attractive for industrial and academic researchers in drug discovery and development, biomarker identification, translational oncology and toxicology.
