In the MINATEC campus for innovation in micro and nanotechnologies the Leti institute is an applied research centerin microelectronics, technology information and health. Closely with hospital universities and institutions of higher education, the Division of applied Technologies for Biology and Health (Leti HEALTH, http://www-leti.cea.fr/en/Discover-Leti/Leti-s-research/Application-fields/Sante) develops new technologies to improve medical diagnosis and treatment of patients. A the interface between academic research and industrial development, Leti HEALTH has laboratory facilities of 320 m², equipped with a 70 m² clean room and chemistry/ biology laboratories (L1, L2 safety levels) and also an international network of partners.
Our research unit from Leti-Health division is looking for post-doctoral position candidates starting in September 2018 for 28 months. The project, named NEW DEAL, started in January 2017, will end in December 2021 and is funded by the European commission through the H2020 framework in the “’Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, Materials and new Production Technologies (NMP)’ (program Grant Agreement number: 720905 — NEW DEAL — H2020-NMBP-2016-2017). The research project deals with the design, use and biological validation of nanoparticles to improve therapy of inflammatory bowel diseases through the local delivery of specific siRNA. This project involves our interdisciplinary group (fluidics, chemistry, biology) and a strong collaboration with other European partners.
The candidate should have obtained a PhD degree in Biology, more especially in Biochemistry and/or Molecular Biology. Backgrounds in nanoparticle formulation or nanomedicine and in cell culture experiments will be particularly appreciated. Moreover, ability to collaborate in a highly multidisciplinary environment (biologists, chemists, industrial and clinicians), as well as high commitment and motivation are required.
