Dear ETPN members, dear colleagues from the European Nanomedicine community, we are glad to share with you today a research position in DNA nanotechnology at CiQUS – University of Santiago de Compostela in Spain.
The group bionanotools is seeking an enthusiastic, proactive and independent researcher (pre- or postdoctoral) with a proven track record in DNA-nanotechnology (such as DNA-origamis, Framework nucleic acids, etc.). Previous experience in DNA-origami design will be highly appreciated. Applications of pre- and postdoctoral researchers are welcome.
- The applicant will be involved in the synthesis and characterization of DNA-origamis and their interaction with colloidal nanomaterials, as part of the ERC-StG SPACING project. Previous experience in physicochemical characterization techniques such as UV/Vis spectroscopy, fluorescence spectroscopy, gel electrophoresis, Nanoparticle tracking analysis (NTA), dynamic light scattering (DLS), etc. will be considered.
- Good communication skills and proficiency in written and spoken English are essential.
- Research Center: CIQUS, University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain.
- Supervisor: Dr. Beatriz Pelaz and Prof. Pablo del Pino.
Starting date and term
Applications should be sent directly to Dr. Beatriz Pelaz, email@example.com(link sends e-mail), as soon as possible and including a CV (maximum 2 pages), a complete list of publications and the name and the e-mail of two contact persons, indicating in the subject “Synthesis of DNA-origami”.
The Center for Research in Biological Chemistry and Molecular Materials (CiQUS) was created on February 10th 2010 by the Governing Council of the University of Santiago de Compostela (USC).
CiQUS is the first member of a network of singular research centres with a new model of scientific organization, which constitutes one of the R&D strategic axes of the CAMPUS VIDA(link is external) project (Campus of International Excellence, MEC-MICINN, 2009).
