Applications are invited for a multidisciplinary pre-doctoral position in the Carbon Nanobiotechnology lab at CIC biomaGUNE to develop platforms based on Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) for neuronal signalling, reconnection and regeneration. The applicant will be involved in the chemical synthesis, characterization, and manufacturing of the CNTbased substrates, and in the biological validation and evaluation both in vitro and in vivo. The research project will be aimed at deepening the comprehension of the neurological and neurodegenerative diseases and seek for innovative technologies to speed up the drug discovery and therapeutic process. Therefore, the candidate will interact with experts in different disciplines, spanning from synthetic chemistry to cell biology, from photochemistry to medical imaging, and with the opportunity to employ a wide range of characterization and purification methods (i.e. optical spectroscopy, AFM, TEM, XPS, SEM, HPLC, gel electrophoresis, etc) and biology procedures (i.e. cell biology studies, confocal microscopy, medical imaging by MRI and/or PET/SPECT). The project will be developed in collaboration with lead scientist in the field of nanotechnology and neuroscience. Mobility to other institutions and countries will be highly encouraged.
