The Nanoscale Bioelectrical Characterization Group at the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) is looking for an Early Stage Researcher (PhD student) to develop his PhD thesis project on the label-free mapping of biological membranes' composition with nanoscale spatial resolution. The contract will be within the framework of the SPM2.0 Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Training Network (MSCA-ITN-2016-721874), whose objective is to train a new generation of early stage researchers in the most advanced Scanning Probe Microscopy techniques.

The successful candidate will develop research involving:

- Multicomponent lipid bilayer and natural bio membrane preparation techniques
- High resolution topographic imaging techniques (e.g. Atomic Force Microscopy)
- High resolution nanoscale dielectric measurement techniques (e.g. Electrostatic Force Microscopy)

Benefits

We Offer:
- Full time 3 year contract. Very competitive salary. Starting date: From 1st March to 1st September 2017.
- Stimulating, interdisciplinary research and high quality international scientific environment
