Postdoc: Magnetic Colloids

Applications are invited for one Postdoctoral Research Position at the Biocolloid and Fluid Physics group ( at the University of Granada (Spain) to study Magnetic Colloids in confinement. This post is part of a TOTAL fully-funded project that aims to develop magnetic colloids using the inverse ferrofluid approach. The candidates will collaborate and interact widely with members of the group, including experimentalists, theorists, and simulators working in the project. The research will be carried out with external collaborators at TOTAL (France).

The appointment will be for a period of one year. The salary will be 36.000 €/year. The position is currently open until filled. Starting date is flexible.


We expect a highly motivated and career-oriented candidate with good English skills, strong initiative and the ability to multi-task. The candidate is expected to have a PhD in Physics, Chemistry, Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Materials Science or a closely related discipline. The ideal candidate should have a background in non-Newtonian fluid mechanics.

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 (
