    We offer a technician position at the FluoroNanoTools lab(https://www.biofisika.org/en/research/fluoronanotools-laboratory) at Instituto Biofisika (Leioa) under the supervision of Dr. Mónica Carril. 
    The research will focus on the scale up of bioorthogonal strategies to label membrane receptors in vivo. The technician will reproduce and scale up the synthesis of molecules of certain complexity in the frame of a collaborative interdisciplinary project that aims to neuromodulate the neuronal response. We aim to use ligand directed receptor covalent labelling, followed by bioorthogonal binding with suitably modified probes. The researcher needs to have a strong background in organic synthesis and previous experience in handling HPLC-MS equipment will be highly valued.

    Deadline:

    We offer a postdoctoral position at the FluoroNanoTools lab (https://www.biofisika.org/en/research/fluoronanotools-laboratory) at Instituto Biofisika (Leioa) under the supervision of Dr. Mónica Carril. 
    The research will focus on the development of bioorthogonal strategies to label membrane receptors in vivo. We aim to use ligand directed receptor covalent labelling, followed by biorthoogonal binding with suitably modified probes. Target receptors will be located at the neural membrane and could be AMPAR or TRP type, among others. We look for the combination of different strategies particularly those based on SuFEx reactions and those based on the reaction of tetrazines with trans-cyclooctene. The researcher will have to develop novel molecules to achieve the successful receptor labelling and the bioorthogonal binding with the selected probe, hence a deep knowledge of organic chemistry and/or medicinal chemistry is required. Background in bioorthogonal reactions will also be valued. The research is part of a collaborative interdisciplinary project that aims to neuromodulate the neuronal response.

    Publication date:

    Deadline:

    We offer a fully funded 4 year Ph.D position (FPI) at the Cell and Tissue Mechanobiology lab at Biofisika Institute (Bilbao) under the supervision of Ion Andreu
    The research will focus on understanding the role of karyopherins in nuclear mechanotransuction during breast cancer invasion in vitro.  Mechanical forces transmitted through the extracellular matrix or by neighbor cells maintain homeostasis in tissues. Deviation from mechanical homeostasis has long been associated with disease progressions, such as liver fibrosis, atherosclerosis, and cancer. It is well stablished that tissue stiffening promotes the malignant phenotype, and that mechanical activation of cell promotes invasion in breast cancer. At the molecular level, among other effects, mechanical forces control the localization of key cancer transcription regulators and regulate gene expression in breast cancer. However, we are only starting to understand the complexity of mechano-molecular regulation. 
    Building up from our previous research, this project aims to unravel force-driven molecular regulation in breast cancer invasion. For that, we will combine molecular biology with biophysical techniques and cutting-edge microscopy. Training on any of these fields will be offered.
