OFFER DESCRIPTION

The Molecular Bionics group led by Dr. Giuseppe Battaglia at the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) is looking for a postdoctoral researcher work on the synthesis and study of (co)-polymers and vesicles self-assembly.

Introduction to the vacant position:
The Molecular Bionics Group led by Prof. Giuseppe Battaglia, is seeking for a post-doctoral researcher to work on the synthesis and study of (co)-polymers and vesicles self-assembly.
We are a multidisciplinary group whose general objective is to design and characterise bionic units that mimic specific biological functions and/or introduce operations that do not exist in Nature. We apply a constructionist approach where we mimic biological complexity in the form of design principles to produce functional units from simple building blocks and their interactions. We called this Molecular Bionics. Such an effort is multidisciplinary and involves inputs from Chemistry, Physics, and Cell and Molecular Biology.
One of the focus of our research is the synthesis of polymers and their assembly into vesicles, especially polymersomes, intended to nanomedicine applications.
Please, visit our external web site for more information: https://www.molecularbionics.org

Main tasks and responsibilities / The successful candidate will develop research involving:

  • Synthesis and characterization of copolymers via controlled polymerisation methods.
  • Assembly and bio-physical characterization of polymeric vesicles and micelles
