MARIE CURIE FELLOWSHIP OFFERED
A PhD position is available for an Early Stage Researcher in the framework of the Marie Curie Initial Training Network DYNANO (Dynamic Interactive Nanosystems).
Summary: 36-month position at the Rocasolano Institute of Physical Chemistry (Spanish National Research Council, CSIC) for an Early Stage Researcher in the framework of the ITN DYNANO. DYNANO’s scientific objective is the design, evaluation and optimization of functional nanosystems of biomedical and biotechnological interest. Research activities at the Rocasolano Institute will be focussed on lectin-carbohydrate systems of biomedical relevance. In particular, the work to be carried out involves the development and application of new microarray platforms, from lectin to cell microarrays, and the testing of the assembling, organization and functionality of lectin/carbohydrate-bearing nanosystems, including naturally occurring extracellular vesicles (in collaboration with the Membrane Nanovesicle Research Group from the Department of Genetics of the Semmelweis University, Budapest, Hungary).
Dynano-CIB CSIC – request for a Ph D student position
Job Title: Ph D in the field of “NMR and molecular recognition studies applied to Dynamic Interactive Nanosystems”
Job Summary (English, max 1000 characters)
The PhD candidate will be involved in a multidisciplinary project within the molecular recognition field. In particular, he/she will focus on the applications of state-of-the-art NMR methods to investigate biomolecular conformation, structure, and dynamics, of a variety of ligands, as well as on the specific molecular recognition events that take place between them with specific receptors. During the last few years, the group has determined the solution 3D structure of different proteins and thrir complexes using a protocol based on NMR spectroscopy, assisted by molecular mechanics and dynamics calculations. This methodology will be applied to different molecular complexes and to the elucidation of the structure of protein receptors of biomedical interest.
