The group of Dr. Javier Montenegro is seeking for a Postdoctoralassociate with strong background in inorganic synthesis for the preparation of new metal boron clusterswithapplications as conceptually new membrane carriers. This is an excellent opportunity to join the Montenegro lab and work in a multidisciplinary team in a great challenge for the development of a completely new field of research.
The aim of the project is to prepare new metal and boron clusters for their application as chaotropic membrane transporters.
Chaotropic membrane transport is a completely new research field (see references) with an outstanding potential to revolutionize the fields of membrane transport and drug delivery. We are now exploring new intriguing properties and mechanisms of chaotropic membrane transport and we advance towards the use of new boron clusters for their future implementation in therapeutic delivery.
The applicant will be involved in the synthesis of new boron and other metal clusters for their connections to different organic molecules (e.g. fluorescent probes, antimicrobials) and their subsequent intracellular delivery by chaotropic transport.
We seek motivated candidates with initiative, creativity and team-working ability and with a PhD in Inorganic Chemistry and metal cluster synthesis.
Experience in organic synthesis and/or supramolecular chemistry will be highly considered.
Good communication skills and proficiency in written and spoken English are essential.
