Science jobs from Spanish National Research Council (CSIC): job description
We offer a three year contract to research at the Instituto de Microlectrónica de Madrid (CSIC) in the group: “Instruments and techniques for local probe and molecular recognition devices”. Candidates with excellent CV could apply for a permanent contract.
Atomic Force microscopy (AFM) has rapidly developed in the last decade since a new form of biomolecular physics has been initiated by introducing a new approach to the study of biological processes at the molecular level. Nowadays, Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) methods are the only tools capable of reaching nanometric resolution in the study of inter and intra molecular interactions and performing maps of surface cell properties or cellular receptors at nanoscopic domains, in physiological environments. This information is the key point in the understanding of processes such as tissue growth and repair, cellular metastasis, bacterial infection and inflammation.
The project to be accomplished is addressed to perform fundamental and technological scientific research in the field of physics, biophysics and chemical-physics nanocharacterization by means of the design and development of new techniques and instrumentation. The position is mainly focused on experimental work but interest in performing theoretical modeling will be highly valuable.
The offer is addressed to physicists or biophysicists highly motivated in science research, with initiative, and ability to create, design and develop innovative projects. Dead line for position application: Feb 6th 2011. Flexible starting date: from May 2nd 2011 to January 1st 2012.
