Intelligent spectroscopy for reagent-free biosensors - metabolism and pathogen diagnosis


Work description

The Smartfarm 4.0 project (PG03064) has as its objective the development of advanced technology for the implementation of non-invasive sensor systems and without the use of monitoring reagents for plant metabolism and diseases, for their implementation and precision agriculture. The tasks to be developed involve the development of reagent-free spectroscopy systems using advanced spectral analysis to quantify the plant's metabolism and its physiology, as well as making the early diagnosis of diseases.

Academic Qualifications

PhD in Biosensing devices or similar

Minimum profile required

Experience in developing biosensors and bio-photonics with reagent-less spectroscopy for metabolic quantification, biomarkers and pathogenic microorganisms.
