The successful candidate will reconstitute the permeability barrier in vitro, to de-construct how the permeability works and to define the minimal molecular requirements for selective transport. The project is part of a broader effort within the framework of an ERC Starting Grant to understand and exploit the working principles of biological hydrogels.
Required qualifications. We are looking for an outstanding experimentalist with a solid background in bioengineering, physical chemistry, biological physics, or a closely related field. Solid experience with biosurfaces science and/or microfluidics is an advantage. The candidate should have keen interest in multidisciplinary work, and a strong drive to excel in a competitive international environment.more information in PDF format (729.93 Kb)
The Biosurfaces Lab at CIC biomaGUNE is looking for a dynamic and creative individual to fill the vacancy of a research assistant in the framework of an ERC Starting Grant project on biological hydrogels.
The applicant should have keen interest in multidisciplinary work in an international research environment. He/she should have a degree (MSc or equivalent) in biochemistry or related fields. Solid experience with protein expression and purification, and cell culture, is required. Research experience is an advantage.
Responsibilities will include the development of protein expression and cell culture, and work with surface functionalization and analysis techniques. More experienced candidates may also be given the opportunity to develop their own research projects within the research lines of the Richter Lab.
The cyclotron engineer will take care of maintenance and daily operation of the cyclotron and other equipment.
- Operation and management of big equipment, including the cyclotron, hot cells and radiochemistry boxes.
- Preventive and/or corrective maintenance of the above-mentioned equipment.
- Periodic calibration/verification of radioactivity detectors.
- Management of stocks/spare parts associated to big equipment.
- Flexible working time including 8-12 weekends a year.

IMMUNOSHAPE is a major EU funded programme which brings together 13 leading European partners in a transnational network, implementing a multidisciplinary and intersectorial research and training programme between the academic and the industrial partners in the fields of biomedical glycoscience. IMMUNOSHAPE aims at training a new generation of scientists that will be capable of combining state of the art synthesis and screening technology to develop new lead structures for highly selective glycan based multivalent immunotherapeutics for the treatment of cancer, autoimmune diseases and allergy.
The successful candidate will participate in the network’s training activities and work placements at the laboratories of the participating academic and industrial teams. Regular meetings and workshops within the EU-funded IMMUNOSHAPE International Training Network will supplement the training and support provided at the different host Institutions.
