Full Time

Applications are invited for a temporary post of a UCD Post-Doctoral Research Fellow Level 1 or UCD Post-Doctoral Research Fellow Level 2 within UCD School of Biosystems and Food Engineering(17 months)

Food safety requires rapid and consistent identification of micro-organisms. We aim to develop a novel, non-destructive system, capable of detecting microbes on surfaces. The project addresses critical gaps in our knowledge of the growth and persistence of bacteria and biofilms on surfaces using spectral imaging at multiple spatial scales (from microscopic to macroscopic) and spectral modalities combined with microbial characterisation. Based on this knowledge we aim to develop and validate laboratory test-scale system to improve safety and security of the food chain.
