ICMol Job openings

If you join ICMol you will be part of a cutting-edge science and technology team. We will provide you with the state-of-the-art equipment and the most highly specialized scientific personnel.

You'll be working in an international environment and you will benefit from ICMol's complementary training programme.

The University of Valencia has also a strong program of scientific seminars, technical workshops, international research stages and other soft skills courses and activities.

The recruitment of new researchers at the tenure track level has been mainly based on the attraction of emergent researchers. The two rules followed for their selection are:
- The scientific excellence of the researcher; and
- His/her previous scientific expertise and how this expertise can be useful to reinforce and complement the ICMol research lines.

Open positions:

Postdoctoral Researcher 1 year contract in optical control to the dimerization of transmembrane helices from proteins and peptides
The Membrane Biophysics group from the Institute of Molecular Science (ICMol) at the University of Valencia (Spain) focuses its work on adding optical control to the folding, insertion of dimerization of transmembrane (TM) protein fragments. We exploit the added control to better understand these relevant processes at the molecular level with the help of static and time-resolved spectroscopies and molecular dynamics simulations.
Requirements and expertise
Researcher from different backgrounds are welcomed.
Hold a PhD in science by a recognized university (received after May 2019)
We value any experience in:
-Vibrational (or electronic) spectroscopies of proteins / peptides (static and/or time-resolved).
-Preparation and handling of membrane peptides / membrane proteins.
-Synthesis and/or use of photoswitches.
-Scientific programming (Matlab, Python).

Candidates from countries outside the EU require a residence permit.
Send personal data and CV specifying education, publication record and any othe relevant information to victor.lorenz@uv.es; (subject: MemBioPhys_Postdoc2023).

PhD fellowship in the field of Applications of Nanomaterials in Chemical Biology
The project focuses on the development of hybrid DNA-nanomaterials and their applications as imaging agents using radiopharmaceuticals. This highly multidisciplinary project at the interface of organic chemistry, nanomaterials and imaging will involve organic and material synthesis, biophysical characterisation, cellular work and radioimaging tools.
Requirements and expertise
Applicants should have a MSc in Nanomaterials, Chemistry, Biochemistry or similar. Previous experience in nucleic acids and metal-organic frameworks, and their characterisation using biophysical techniques (NMR, mass spectrometry, DLS, TEM?) are desirable. Experience in cellular experiments and imaging techniques (PET and MR) are also considered.
