OFFER DESCRIPTION

ICFO is offering a postdoctoral position to a well-qualified, highly motivated and dynamic young scientist who wish to enhance his/her scientific career in a friendly, international and stimulating environment within the field of Nano-MechanoBiology. 

The successful candidates will be joining The Single Molecule Biophotonics research group at ICFO, led by Prof. Dr. Maria García-Parajo. He/she will be part of a recently granted Advanced ERC project aimed to study how adhesion receptors of the immune cells sense and respond to mechanical stimuli by changing their nanoscale organization and dynamics on the cell membrane and how this affects mechanotransduction and cell response. The project will combine super-resolution microscopy, single molecule imaging, molecular and cell biology and will primary focus on cells of the immune system.
