The Institut Fresnel is a research state laboratory based in Marseille / France, devoted to
research and higher education in all areas of optical and photonic sciences.
Institut Fresnel is seeking to recruit talented, enthusiastic young scientists who are highly
motivated to boost their research career in the areas of nano-optics and/or biophotonics.The successful candidate will be part of a collaborative European project devoted to improve the sensitivity of innovative optical biosensors using nano-structures materials such as surface corrugations and nano-antennas. The project will be carried out in the Mosaic and Clarte groups
that have gathered a wide and recognized expertise in experimental and theoretical nanophotonics.

The project aims at designing and realizing CMOS based biosensors that include nanoscale structures that are known to dramatically improve the fluorescence emitted by bio-labelled molecules. The successful candidate will work both on the design and fabrication of the
nanostructures and their optical characterization as implemented in real bioassays. This research will be done in close collaboration with industrial partners interested into the transfer of
such innovations into the market.
