Postdoctoral Research Associate - PET imaging of microneedle-enhanced cancer immunotherapy


An opportunity exists for a talented postdoc in the field of nanomedicine to work jointly in the Theranostic Nanomedicine Lab and Radiochemistry & Nuclear Imaging Lab. This postdoc position will support also a research collaboration with the Centre for NanoHealth at Swansea University. The research focuses on the integration of nanotechnology and microneedle technology to develop a safer, more effective, controlled and user-friendly administration of emerging immunotherapy constructs. Within this project, the postdoc will develop radiolabelled immunomodulatory drugs and drug delivery vehicles for tracking in vivo using PET imaging, as well as evaluate the therapeutic efficacy in mouse models. Job requirements: We are seeking highly motivated candidates with an excellent research/academic track record and hands-on experience in one or more of the following areas: -  In vitro immune cell activation assays; cell culture; analysis and purification of primary immune cells from murine tissues; methods for in vitro and in vivo analysis of immune responses; cancer mouse models. - Organic synthesis and bioconjugation - Radiolabeling and in vivo preclinical studies

Post‐Doctoral Fellow opportunity in “Carbon Nanotubes‐based biomaterials for Neuroregeneration and MR Imaging follow‐up of the Recovery”


The objective of this fully‐funded 2‐year post‐doctoral fellowship is, in a first stage, to develop innovative 3D scaffolds based on carbon nanomaterials and conjugated polymers for neuronal tissue regeneration and, in a second stage, use magnetic resonance imaging techniques to follow up the recovery of the neuronal tissue after implantation in an animal model of disease. The project is developed in collaboration with the research neuroscience center Achucarro (Bilbao, Spain) and SISSA (Trieste, Italy). The applicant will be responsible of the synthetic part, of the magnetic resonance studies (in coordination with the MRI platform personnel of biomaGUNE) and of the collaborative work with the different institutions, as well as of the supervision of PhD students.
