The Molecular Physiology (https://www.upf.edu/web/lmp ) and the Integrative Biomedical Materials and Nanomedicine Lab (https://www.upf.edu/web/nanomed ) are seeking for a Post-doctoral researcher to work on the development of plasmonic-silica nanomaterials for biomedical applications. Candidates should have background training and experience in synthesis of gold and silica nanoparticles as well as on drug conjugation, loading and release. Specifically, on building albumin nanoparticles loaded with chemotherapeutics, their subsequent coating, surface modification with antibodies and in vivo tumor release characterization. The project has a strong translational character and therefore fulfilment of the objective within the deadlines is mandatory. The position will provide opportunities to gain experience in technology transfer activities, mentoring students, managing research teams, disseminating research results, and scientific writing.
The candidate will receive a 12-month postdoc contract with possibility for extension.
