2 Post-Doctoral Positions in Targeted Nanotherapy for Cancer

2 post-doctoral positions (1 and 2 years) are now opened in the INSERM ERL1226 Team of Receptology and Therapeutic Targeting in Cancerology of the Laboratory of Physics and Chemistry of Nano-Objects (LPCNOCNRS UMR5215-INSA), in Toulouse (France).
Objectives of the project: The project developed by the candidate will be integrated into the research axis "Targeted nanotherapy of cancers using magnetic nanoparticles and magnetic field". The objectives will consist in continuing the study of the mechanisms involved in the death of cancer cells and in increasing the effectiveness of this strategy by optimizing several parameters or in elaborating a new approach of targeted nanotherapy. In vivo studies may also be considered on the murine transgenic MEN1 knockout model representative of human MEN1 syndrome, developing multiple endocrine tumors. The efficacy of therapeutic targeting and the magnetic intra-lysosomal hyperthermia nanotherapy to inhibit tumor growth or induce tumor regression will be evaluated.
Applicants should submit curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a brief description of their research and the career goals to Véronique GIGOUX (

Postdoctoral Researcher Position in Biomedical Applications of Magnetic Nanoparticles

A postdoc position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Carlos Rinaldi ( in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Florida. This position is for an initial one-year appointment, and has the potential to be renewed for additional years based on performance and funding availability. Dr. Rinaldi has a long history of training professionals who have entered and succeeded in academic positions.
Dr. Rinaldi’s research focuses on advancing the understanding and applications of suspensions of magnetic particles, with emphasis on biomedical applications of magnetic nanoparticles. Work in Dr. Rinaldi’s lab is interdisciplinary and spans theory and simulations, nanoparticle synthesis and modification, characterization, and applications development. Dr. Rinaldi’s laboratory is outfitted with extensive instrumentation for characterizing the physicochemical and magnetic properties of nanoparticles, as well as in vitro and in vivo testing. This is complemented by state-of-the-art research facilities at UF. Candidates should have background training and experience in synthesis, characterization, and biomedical applications of magnetic nanoparticles.
