PhD Position in Nanotechnology and Biomedicine

Research Field: Biological sciences 
Sub Research Field:  

Job Summary

A PhD position is available as a collaborative project between the groups Aitziber L. Cortajarena (Biomolecular Nanotechnology Lab at CIC biomaGUNE) and Lorea Blázquez (RNA-processing and therapeutics Lab at Biodonostia). This project will be focused on the development of RNA-editing tools through engineering of biomolecule-nanomaterial hybrids for therapeutic approaches. This collaborative project aims to design and generate hybrid multifunctional modules based on Cas13 proteins or repeat protein scalffolds from natural RNA binding domains fused to an engineered modules in order to coordinate gold nanoclusters.

Job Description

For this purpose, new approaches will be developed based on the combination of the experience of the two groups involved: the expertise of Prof. Cortajarena in protein engineering for the generation of protein-based functional hybrids, in particular protein-nanoclusters hybrids; and the expertise of Dr. Blázquez in RNA-processing and neurological diseases. The project is highly multidisciplinary and combines research involving biochemistry, protein chemistry, molecular and cell biology and in vitro and in vivo disease models.
