The Molecular Bionics Group is looking for self-motivated and ambitious candidates who have a PhD in Physics, Physical Chemistry, or Engineering or equivalent.
Experience in active matter, optical microscopy, vesicles, and soft matter in general will be desired.
While the project will be mostly experimental, we seek to complement our work with both theoretical and computational efforts.
Within our group we actively encourage our members to look beyond the boundaries of their chosen discipline, as well as sharing and broadening knowledge across disciplines through societies and competitions.
We seek candidates keen to work at the interface between physics and cell biology with a strong interest in out-of-equilibrium physics and active matter.
The general aim of the project is to study and characterise biological and synthetic vesicles to identify and characterise potential active phoretic transport.
We will combine de novo synthetic biology, molecular engineering, with cell and molecular biology and out-of-equilibrium physics including active matter principles to assess the minimal components required for controlling processes such as chemotaxis, self-diffusophoresis and osmophoresis.
We are looking for.
Main tasks and responsibilities / The successful candidate will develop research involving.
Advanced imaging techniques to track nanoparticles Optical microscopy setting up and maintance, particularly in light sheet configuration.
Synthetic and cell biological methodology to reconstruct/purify natural vesicles Theoretical and computational analysis applied to phoretic transport Requirements for candidates.
PhD or equivalent in any field on Physical Sciences or Engineering (including Physics, Biophysics, Chemical Physics/Physical Chemistry, Natural Sciences (with Physics), Material Science and Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Biochemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Physical Engineering or Bioengineering, Multidisciplinary qualifications (biological physics, soft matter physics, physical biology, transport phenomena, fluid dynamics etc.).
Competencies and skills.
Communication, Teamwork, Proactivity, Commitment, Collegiality, Integrity, Critical and Analytical thinking High level of English Advantageous.
Previous experience in complex fluids, fluid dynamics, vesicles, cell culture, active colloids, and optics is desirable but not essential as training will be provided.
Familiarity with scientific computing for instrument control, data analysis and modelling, e.
R, Python, Matlab, LabVIEW, COMSOL.
Hands on with Optical set up and light sheet microscopy design.
Number of available positions.
1 Starting date.
1 st October Working conditions.
Full time 3-year contract.
Very competitive salary/ Salary will be commensurate with academic level and experience.
Measures to reconcile work and family life (maternity and paternity leave, flexible schedule working hours, teleworking, 23 working days of paid holidays, 9 leave days for personal matters, among others).
IBEC ensures equality of access to professional development opportunities irrespective of employment status, length at IBEC or other factors.
The IBEC’s yearly training catalogue offers a wide range of training in technical and transferable skills.
Mobility grants for first stage researchers, as well as a Mentoring programme for Postdoctoral researchers are offered.
How to apply.
Until September 15th an online application form is available through IBEC dedicated site.
u/ Only those applications submitted before the deadline will be evaluated.
