Professor Luis Áñlvarez de Cienfuegos Rodríguez, from the Department of Organic Chemistry at the University of Granada, welcomes postdoctoral candidates interested in applying for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (MSCA-IF) in this university. Applicants must comply with the Mobility Rule (more information in the participant guide: http://sl.ugr.es/097k).

The laboratories of the Organic Chemistry Department have all the equipment to carry out a research in organic materials (laminar flow hoods, dark room, centrifuges, analytical and semi-preparative HPLC system, cell incubator, polarimeter, IR, etc.), complying with safety and hygiene regulations at work. The Department is also an excellently equipped spectroscopy laboratory. It has several UV-visible as well as the state of the art CD and CPL spectrophotometers.

Furthermore, the Center of Scientific Instrumentation (CIC) of the UGR, has a complete service of  X-ray diffraction and electron microscopy (HR-TEM, microcomputed tomography, TEM, SEM, cryo-SEM, AFM), that are used for the characterization of these materials.

Research at my group integrates chemistry with materials science, biology, and medicine. We are focusing in the development of self-assembling organic materials and their promising biomedical and technological applications. Our research takes use of fundamental supramolecular chemistry and materials science aimed at learning how to program molecules to assemble into functional materials.

In the biomedical field, we are interested in the development of bioactive materials for regenerative medicine that can directly signal cells. The chemical systems include self-assembling short-peptides and biopolymers to design solid scaffolds or injectable nanostructures to create a bioactive artificial extracellular matrix. In the technological field, we are interesting in the design of self-assembled materials able to promote nucleation, crystal growth and biomineralization of proteins as well as organic and inorganic small compounds. Additionally, we are interesting in the development of composite smart materials combining organic and inorganic substrates to improve the performance of such materials, such as, organic materials with magnetic nanoparticles, nanotubes, etc...
