Post-doctoral Researcher on early detection of Alzheimer?s by Spectroscopy


The Nanoscience Cooperative Research Center CIC nanoGUNE, created with the mission of conducting world-class nanoscience research for the competitive growth of the Basque Country and recently recognized as a "María de Maeztu" Excellence Unit (2017-2021), is currently looking for a





to work on


Early detection of Alzheimer’s by Spectroscopy



The Nanoengineering Group at CIC nanoGUNE is working on photonic solutions in the field of medical diagnostics, food quality control, environmental monitoring and material analysis. In an ongoing project, we are investigating the capabilities of reliable detection of Alzheimer’s disease by the combination of different spectroscopic approaches. Apart from instrumental issues and systematic measurements on human samples, a key issue is the development of multi-parametric learning algorithms that provide us a higher information value.


Working plan of the project is:

  • Building up a setup for fluorescence spectroscopy
  • Preparation of standard reference biosamples and systematic planning of measurement series
  • Preparation of human samples of cerebro-spinal fluid and defining a sample handling protocol for all measurement methods
  • Carrying out Raman, SERS, FTIR and fluorescence measurements
  • Multi-parametric data analysis, as for example multivariate analysis methods or deep learning



The successful candidate will have a PhD in Physics, Chemistry, Material Science, or related Engineering field and experience in Spectroscopy, Optics, Photonics, Multivariate analysis, Biomedical Engineering. Moreover, profound knowledge in optics/photonics/spectroscopy, interdisciplinary working style and fluent in English will be evaluated.


We offer a temporary contract until end of 2020. Working in an interdisciplinary team with external partners. High motivation for interactively collaborating with other projects of the group.



For application: please fill the form in https://www.nanogune.eu/careers and submit: 

  1. A complete CV, motivation letter, certificates and 2 reference contacts, all grouped in a single PDF file.
