Contact me directly for informal inquiries regarding the “physicist” position. These positions are funded by the EPSRC research grant: Ultrastable targeted multifunctional hybrid nanomaterials for long-term stem cell tracking

POLYMER-FUNCTIONALISED INORGANIC NANOPARTICLES FOR LONG-TERM STEM CELL TRACKING

 

£30,747 pa

 

The following positions are available in an interdisciplinary project to develop hybrid Nanomaterials (superparamagnetic iron oxides, SPIONs) for stem cell imaging.

 

POLYMER CHEMIST: Synthesis of novel polymers as coatings for optimised SPION stability and location for the imaging application, and fabrication of these nanomaterials. A PhD in synthetic chemistry and a desire and ability to work in an interdisciplinary environment are essential, with expertise in Nanomaterials and self-assembly being desirable. The post is available for 4 years. Job Ref: R-572172

 

PHYSICIST: Development and applications of new technologies to image (photothermal microscopy) and characterise (cell tracking velocimeter) the entry and fate of SPIONs in single living cells. A PhD in physics and a desire and ability to work in an interdisciplinary environment are essential. The post is available for 4 years. Job Ref: R-572171

 

BIOLOGIST: The behaviour of SPIONs within stem cells in vitro, and determining if SPION-labelled stem cells can be tracked in the long-term with MRI using a mouse model of renal injury. A PhD and expertise in cell biology is essential, with knowledge of MRI and animal handling being highly desirable. The post is available for 3½ years. Job Ref: R-572170

Closing Date for all posts: 28 May 2010
