09/07/2020 María Moros: new member of the  Young Academy  of Spain 

 The Young Academy of Spain has selected 13 new members. This Academy gives a voice to  young scientists, connecting and mobilizing new talent.

Postdoctoral position open (Materials Science)  26/05/2020

Position Summary 

A postdoctoral position in biomedical applications of magnetic nanoparticles is available in our lab. This position is part of the ERC Starting Grant project led by María Moros and entitled “SIROCCO: Remote control of cellular signalling triggered by magnetic switching”. The project aims to control the activation of intracellular pathways by using magnetic nanoparticles. The position is for one-year appointment, and has the possibility to be renewed for additional years.

The candidate will synthesize, characterize and functionalize with biomolecules different types of magnetic nanoparticles. The project is highly interdisciplinary and the applicant must be highly motivated, and have a collaborative spirit. Essential experience and skills include: design and execution of experiments, communicating scientific findings, and working within a team. This is a 100% research position with no teaching requirements associated. 

The position is hosted in the Bionanosurf group, at the Aragon Materials Science Institute (Zaragoza, Spain), a joint Institute between The Spanish National Research Council and the University of Zaragoza. The lab is composed of a highly interdisciplinary and international team of motivated researchers. We focus on the synthesis and smart functionalization of nanoparticles for biomedical applications.

Postdoctoral position open (Molecular and Cellular Biology) 14/05/2020

Postdoctoral position in cellular and molecular biology

Position Summary

We are looking for a highly motivated and collaborative postdoctoral researcher. The position is part of the ERC Starting Grant project led by María Moros and entitled “SIROCCO: Remote control of cellular signalling triggered by magnetic switching”. The project aims to control the activation of intracellular pathways related with cadherins by using magnetic nanoparticles. The candidate will develop genetically modified 2D and 3D in vitro models and will test the possibility to enhance wound repair. Further, he/she will help mentor current BSc, MSc, and PhD students of the group.

The position is funded for 2 years with the possibility of extension. The project is highly interdisciplinary and the applicant must be highly motivated, and have a collaborative spirit. Essential experience and skills include: design and execution of experiments, communicating scientific findings, and working within a team.
