Post-doctoral position in membrane-based nano-mechanobiology

Updated: about 15 hours ago
Deadline: ;

ICFO is offering a postdoctoral position to a well-qualified, highly motivated and dynamic young scientist who wishes to enhance his/her scientific career in a friendly and stimulating environment.

The Single Molecule Biophotonics group led by Prof. Dr. María García-Parajo is looking for well-qualified, self-motivated and curiosity-driven candidates who wish to make original contributions in the field of Nano-MechanoBiology. The candidates will be part of an Advanced ERC project aimed to study how cell membrane adhesion receptors sense and respond to mechanical stimuli by changing their nanoscale organization and dynamics on the cell membrane and how this affects mechanotransduction and cell response. The project will combine cutting-edge super-resolution and single molecule imaging, molecular and cell biology together with specifically designed mechanical devices to exert and measure forces at the nanoscale. A strong effort will be placed on the development of suitable algorithms (including deep learning) for data quantification. We offer an outstanding scientific and stimulating environment with multiple interactions with international colleagues.
