Position for:
GRANTHOLDER
Nanotoxicology
In the frame of the "Ciência sem Fronteiras" program
(CsF), the JRC is offering an opportunity for a
Brazilian researcher to work on the interaction of
nanoparticles (NP) with cellular systems and in
particular cellular uptake and trafficking.
The post is located in the Nanobiosciences Unit, whose
mission is to carry out innovative and targeted
research for a better understanding of the properties,
fate and effects of nanomaterials. This knowledge
underpins work on the safety assessment of
nanomaterials, and reinforces the unit's primary policy
support activities, including the provision of
circumspect opinions to EU decision makers. In
particular, the Unit deals with the assessment of
interaction of nanomaterials with biological systems
and develops special in vitro tests to evaluate and
quantify these interactions as a function of the
physical chemical properties of the nanomaterials
tested.
The work will involve one or more of the following:
• In vitro cytotoxicity testing of a selected set of
nanomaterials.
• Study of interaction of NP with cell membranes and
determination of the adsorption kinetics.
• Study of NP entrapment as a function of physico
chemical properties. Kinetics evolution as a function
of NP physico chemical properties.
Qualifications:
These grantholder contracts are aimed at postdoctorates researchers holding a doctoral degree
equivalent to CNPq’s Post-Doctorate fellowships in
foreign countries (PDE) in a field relevant to the JRC’s
scientific activities.
Requirements:
University level education in one of the following
domains: Biology, toxicology.
Experience:
Essential domains: Cellular biology, toxicology
An ability to work in a multi-national team is
necessary. Very good written and oral communication
skills are essential, as well as very good written and
spoken English language skills.
Advantages:
Good knowledge in biochemistry would be an asset.
