Postdoctoral position available on nanoparticle synthesis
Project: A postdoctoral position is available in the framework of the European H2020-FETOPEN-2018-2020 project POSEIDON (NanoPhOtonic devices applying SElf-assembled colloIDs for novel ON-chip light sources).
The ground-breaking aim of POSEIDON is to develop a radically new bottom-up approach towards multi-scale, on chip self-assembly of active colloidal novel light sources. The project encompasses the entire process chain of computer-aided design, controlled synthesis, hierarchical assembly, optoelectronic integration and device fabrication. It is a highly multidisciplinary project and involves several European partners.

Technician Position in Protein Expression and Purification
Project: One technician position in Protein Expression and Purification is available in the Biomolecular Nanotechnology Group at CIC biomaGUNE lead by Dr. Aitziber L. Cortajarena.
The main job responsibilities will be to support research efforts by performing large scale protein expression, purification and characterization techniques. The candidate will also provide support on molecular biology techniques (site directed mutagenesis, error-prone PCR). Finally, the candidate will help with the implementation of high-throuput medologies for protein design.
The project is in the framework of an ERC Consolidator Grant (ProNANO) focused on the development of a modular versatile platform for the fabrication of protein-based hybrid functional nanostructures for their use in different applications including molecular electronics, optical plasmonics, bioorganic catalysis, and photoactive systems among

Research Trainee position in molecular and functional biomarkers
Project: The project is a collaborative work beween Dr. Jesús Ruiz-Cabello at CIC biomaGUNE and Dr. Rigoberto Pérez de Alejo at Numio Tecnologías SL in the field of monitoring of physiological signals (e.g. arterial pressure, respiratory volume, plethysmography and electrocardiography) acquisition and processing for applications in small laboratory animals. It is based on the improvement of an existing monitor for veterinary application but not usable for small laboratory animals.
The project is based on the improvement of the sensitivity of the device according to the small respiratory and cardiac signals registered from laboratory animal models and the increment of the sampling rate from 30ms to below 2ms to satisfy their highest respiratory and hearth rates. Additionally, once the device is adapted to capture the signals of small roedent efficiently, data will be acquired and post processed for the implementation of new diagnostic calculated parameters.
