The Adolphe Merkle Institute group of BioNanomaterial’s Calls for application for a postdoc position in the school to carry out research in “hazard assessment of nanoparticles/tissue models”.
The group’s research aims to study the synthesis and characterization of highly complex inorganic nanoparticles designed for biomedical applications and their behavior in biological systems and the interaction with cells, in particular with respect to uptake mechanism, cell response, and intracellular trafficking.
The group will focus on the use of advanced 3D models such as lung and intestine to assess the hazard of nanoparticles. As such, it relies on a variety of tissue engineering approaches, analytical as well as microscopy techniques, both from the material and the biological field.
