The Structural Biology group, at the Institute of Nanoscience of Aragón (INA), is seeking for a student to apply for a Predoctoral fpi fellowship of the Government of Aragón. The candidate will join a multidisciplinary and collaborative team of researchers. The position is expected to start during the first half of 2017 and will have duration of 4 years.
The applicant will be integrated into the research line on Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) for the study of biomolecules and the nanostructuration of nanomaterials. This line is developed in the Advanced Microscopy Laboratory, recently recognized as ICTS for the Government of Spain (http://lma.unizar.es/icts/). This facility belongs to INA at the University of Zaragoza, and provides with an extraordinary range of cutting-edge microscopy and spectroscopy tools that support in depth research and drive scientific breakthroughs.
This research line is dedicated to two research topics supported by successive funded projects in both cases. Topic 1 uses AFM to the analysis of enzymatic mechanisms, molecular recognition pathways and intermolecular forces that govern proteins. Topic 2 uses dip-pen nanolithography based on AFM for the nanostructuration of nanomagnets, metallic nanoparticles and proteins on devices to do physical studies, fabricate molecular devices for ICT technologies, and develop new ultrasensitive sensors.
•Graduate in Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Physics or related fields.
•The candidates must hold a title of master in Biophysics, Biochemistry, Nanoscience, Biotechnology, Material Sciences or Chemistry.
• They should also have a good academic record, above 8, in the 10-scale.
Experience in some of the next subjects will be positively valued:
•Protein manipulation, labeling and functionalization.
•AFM imaging, dynamic force spectroscopy, nanomechanical imaging modes, molecular recognition imaging.
•Scanning tunneling microscopy, dip-pen nanolithography or magnetic force microscopy.
•Nanomagnets or nanoparticles manipulation.
How to apply:
For the selection of the candidate, interested candidates are invited to submit a letter of interest, full CV specifying personal data, academic education and experience, as well as a scanned copy of the Academic Certificate showing the grades obtained in the graduate and master degrees to firstname.lastname@example.org
