Application Deadline: 15/04/2021
The Molecular Bionics group led by Dr. Giuseppe Battaglia at the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) is looking for a postdoctoral researcher to work at the interface between physics, chemistry and cell biology to study the super-selective behavior of polymeric vesicles.
Introduction to the vacant position:
We are a multidisciplinary group whose general objective is to design and characterise bionic units that mimic speciﬁc biological functions and/or introduce operations that do not exist in Nature. We apply a constructionist approach where we mimic biological complexity in the form of design principles to produce functional units from simple building blocks and their interactions. We called this Molecular Bionics. Such an effort is multidisciplinary and involves inputs from Chemistry, Physics, and Cell and Molecular Biology.
One of the focus of our research is the study of multivalent interactions between ligands and receptors, that govern many in vivo processes, and that we study and implement to nanomedicine applications.
Main tasks and responsibilities / The successful candidate will develop research involving:
Assembly and bio-physical characterization of polymeric vesicles
Super selectivity studies of nano vesicles on biological substrates
Advanced imaging techniques to track nanoparticles
Requirements for candidates:
Degree and Master on any field on Physical Sciences or Engineering (including Physics, Biophysics, Chemical Physics/Physical Chemistry, Natural Sciences (with Physics), Material Science and Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Biochemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Physical Engineering or Bioengineering,
Multidisciplinary qualifications (biological physics, physical biology, biological chemistry).
Previous experience in cell culture and cell imaging is highly advantageous
Competencies and skills: Communication, Teamwork, Proactivity, Commitment, Collegiality, Integrity, Critical and Analytical thinking
High level of English
Number of available positions: 1
Starting date: 1st May 2021
Fulltime contract. Very competitive salary/ Salary will be commensurate with academic level and experience.
Measures to reconcile work and family life (maternity and paternity leave, flexible schedule working hours, teleworking, 23 working days of paid holidays, 9 leave days for personal matters, among others).
IBEC ensures equality of access to professional development opportunities irrespective of employment status, length at IBEC or other factors. The IBEC’s yearly training catalogue offers a wide range of training in technical and transferable skills. Mobility grants for first stage researchers, as well as a Mentoring programme for Postdoctoral researchers are offered.
Stimulating, interdisciplinary research and high-quality international scientific environment.
Induction programme to facilitate incorporation at IBEC and additional support is provided for foreigners to obtain Visa-working permit and to install in Barcelona.
How to apply:
Only those applications submitted before the deadline will be evaluated.
