MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowship Offer – IMDEA Nanociencia, Spain

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Individual Fellowships 2019

MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowship Offer: The Nanobiotechnology research group at IMDEA Nanociencia, led by Prof. Álvaro Somoza, is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to develop a collaborative project for the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Postdoctoral Fellowship (PF) Call 2024. The group focuses on using bioactive molecules and nanoparticles in nanomedicine and nanotechnology, with a particular interest in applying modified nanoformulations to pancreatic cancer, uveal melanoma, and Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowship Hosting Offer – Novel Approaches in Nanomedicine for Therapeutic and Diagnostic Purposes

Designation: Postdoctoral Researcher

Research Area: Nanomedicine and Nanotechnology

Location: Madrid, Spain

Eligibility/Qualification: Interested and eligible researchers should meet the criteria outlined on the IMDEA Nanociencia MSCA page. Candidates must possess a strong background in fields such as organic chemistry, pharmacy, biochemistry, or biology, and have experience in developing nanomedical tools and sensors.

Job Description:

  • Develop novel therapies using nucleic acid therapeutics combined with nanocarriers to address the delivery and uptake challenges of nucleic acids.
