Laboratory Technician position


The Laboratory Technician will carry out standard in vitro cell biology techniques related to a multidisciplinary project. A Laboratory Technician position is available at the Centre for Cooperative Research in Biomaterials – CIC biomaGUNE, in the Radiochemistry and Nuclear Imaging Group lead by Dr Jordi Llop and Theranostic Nanomedicine Group lead by Prof Juan Mareque. Both groups collaborate closely and are involved in several multidisciplinary projects. One of these collaborative projects is focused on tailoring and characterizing nanomaterial-based vaccines for cancer immunotherapy. Moreover, the study of the biodistribution of those developed materials by nuclear imaging techniques will guide the rational design of the vaccines. One full time, Laboratory Technician position is open for a total duration of 1 year with the possibility of extension (1 year more). General requirements for all candidates include, but are not limited to: - Manipulation and culturing cell lines and primary cultures from animal tissues - Carrying out cell killing assays, including apoptosis and cell cycle analysis by flow cytometry - In vitro general analysis of cell status and polarization (FACS, PCR, Western blot) - Analyzing immune response of vaccinated animals (direct and indirect ELISA and flow cytometry assays) - Studying of tumour infiltrating immune cells (extraction and analysis) - Knowledge in cell microscopy (staining protocols and image acquisition)   Interested? Please send your application with a motivation letter and your CV to:; quote “315 Laboratory Technician” in the e‐mail subject.

Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN-ETN. Research Assistant


Job description Positron emission tomography (PET) is an imaging technique capable to track, in vivo and noninvasively, the biodistribution of a labelled molecule after administration to a living subject. This technology is extremely useful to assess certain pharmacokinetic properties of new chemical and biological entities. The project aims to develop labelling strategies for the incorporation of positron emitters (mainly carbon-11) into new chemical entities and evaluate their biodistribution and metabolism in small rodents. Key responsibilities • To manage and carry out an independent research project in close collaboration with PET3D partners. • To actively participate in research and training activities within the PET3D network. • To contribute to writing articles for scientific journals. • To disseminate research results in the scientific community (via international conferences) and in the non-scientific community (via outreach and public engagement).
