Research Internship at Nanomol: Development of fluorescent nanovesicles for theragnostic
The Nanomol Group is looking for a student who wishes to do an Internship for 8 months within the supervision of Dr. Nora Ventosa, to develop novel fluorescent nanovesicles as bioimaging probes. Deadline to apply: 15 November 2020.
NANOMOL was created with a clear mission for excellence in materials research. It has nowadays a wide expertise and recognized distinction in the synthesis, processing and study of molecule-based materials with chemical, electronic, magnetic and biomedical properties. Thus, there will be a range of potential avenues of investigation to discuss between the Erasmus+ student interested on nanoscience and the host researcher, Dr. Nora Ventosa. Overall, the group led by Dr. Ventosa have made important contributions on the field of nanomaterials, particularly on the development of novel fluorescent nanovesicles as bioimaging probes.
Thus, the young researcher would be involved on exploring new fluorescent nanovesicles with improved properties, such us photodynamic activity or the functionalization of the nanovesicles with targeting units. The research work will allow the Young researcher to obtain or apply experience in:
- Synthesis of organic nanovesicles
- Spectroscopic characterization (UV-Vis, Fluorescence…)
- Physical-chemical, structural, and morphological characterization (e.g. TEM)
The student will join an interdisciplinary team and will work closely with other members of the group.

- Spanish: Basic User A1
Although previous experience is not required, we expect to host a highly motivated student with good capacity for team working and eager to acquire new knowledge and skills. Applicants must have an average grade or undergraduate grade equal to or greater than 7 out of 10. The period of the internship can be discussed with the researcher depending on your interests.
