Postdoctoral position at Center for Light Activated Nanostructures (CLAN)

Posted by: University of Bologna

Posted date: Feb-28-2018

Location: Bologna

The research project deals with the incorporation of the molecular machines developed in the group within bilayer membranes, and the study of their photochemically driven operation in such an environment. The final goal is to observe molecular transport, promoted by the molecular machines, across solution compartments.
The fellow will become part of a young and dynamic team consisting of graduate students, post-docs, and staff members working in an internationally renowned laboratory. The candidate must have a PhD in Chemical/Biogical/Materials Sciences (or a discipline related with soft materials), an outstanding track record, and a strong motivation in undertaking a challenging research project in a stimulating and competitive environment. Experience is required in the design/preparation of lipid bilayers, and in the characterization of resulting planar or spherical (vesicles) aggregates. Subordinately, skills in organic synthesis, supramolecular chemistry, NMR spectroscopy and photochemistry will be considered as a plus. The contract will have an initial duration of 1 year, starting on or after 1 June 2018. The gross salary will be around 25,000 €/y and will be tailored according to the Italian legislation and the experience of the candidate. The research will be performed in the CLAN laboratory located in the Bologna campus of the National Research Council (ISOF institute, isof.cnr.it) with access to the facilities of the Department of Chemistry of the University.
