Title: Post Doc Grant in Nanotechnology
Field of knowledge: Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Science
FAPESP process number: 2014 / 22451-7
Project title: Influence of iontophoresis and ultrasound on the release of drugs from dendrimeric liquid crystals
Field of activity: Nanotechnology
Principal Investigator: Prof. Dr. Renata Fonseca Vianna Lopez
Unit/Institution: Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences in Ribeirao Preto, University of Sao Paulo, Ribeirao Preto, Sao Paulo, Brazil (FCFRP-USP)
Submission Deadline: 01/31/2017
The FCFRP-USP's Center for Innovation in Nanostructured Systems and Topical Administration (NanoTop) offers a post-doctoral opportunity funded by FAPESP grant. The successful candidate will be part of the research team that makes up the thematic project "Sustained and directed drug delivery systems to epithelial tissue". The postdoctoral project will prioritize the development of dendrimeric liquid-crystalline formulations for topical application and evaluation of its influence on the efficiency of iontophoresis and low-frequency ultrasound as cutaneous absorption promoters.
Candidates must possess technical/scientific knowledge in the area of application and development of the project. Candidates must possess proven experience preferably in:
I) Development of analytical methods for drug quantification in biological matrices
Ii) synthesis and purification of biodegradable polymers
Iii) development of nanoparticulate release systems and their characterization by different methods
Iv) in vitro skin permeation assays
V) cell culture and evaluation of cellular uptake
Vi) flow cytometry
(Vii) laser confocal microscopy
(Viii) animal experimentation
Interested candidates should have recently obtained a doctorate degree (not more than two years), preferably in the area of Pharmaceutical Sciences. They must send curriculum vitae (or Lattes curriculum link), two recommendation letters, preferable from researchers that have prior academic research contact with the candidate, and a letter of intent/motivation to this email rvianna(at)fcfrp.usp.br
