We are looking to appoint a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow joining a multidisciplinary research project (“Advanced ocular drug delivery system for preclinical research” ANODE, LIDER/39/0215/L-10/18/NCBR/2019) in the field of molecular and cell biology, cancer animal model, experimental ophthalmology, bioimaging, bioengineering and material science. The main goal of this project is to develop advanced new system for administration of therapeutic substances to selected eyeball tissues with microelectrodes. The system will be used in ophthalmic preclinical research. The system will increase the topical permeability of eyeball tissues for therapeutic substances. Presently, biovailability of drugs administered intravenously is limited by several barriers including: blood-retina barrier, blood-aqueous barrier or blood-vitreous barrier. Topical application (e.g. eye drops) is limited by substantially short time of drug contact with the surface of eyeball, the substances also has to penetrate sclera or/and cornea.

The postdoctoral researcher will be responsible for establishment of animal model of uveal melanoma, cell culture experiments and molecular analysis of uveal melanoma cells. 

Applications should be sent to Dr. Michal Fiedorowicz mfiedorowicz@imdik.pan.pl
