This offer is related to the following project:
"Nanostructural characterisation of protein interactions with lipid bilayer membranes : basis for biosensor development."
This PhD project is in the field of biosensors based on nanostructured biomimetic tethered lipid bilayers (tBLM) to detect plasma proteins.
- Degree allowing enrolment for a PhD (such as MSc, Master 2 de Recherche, Laurea or equivalent) in physics, materials science, chemistry or closely related science
- background in large scale facilities experiments (neutron and x-ray scattering), and knowledge computer programming (C++, Python) would be an advantage
- Ability in handling of biological materials would be an advantage
The successful candidate will be enrolled in the doctoral school of Université Grenoble Alpes and based full-time at the ILL (Grenoble, France), other than a 3-month secondment at SDX-membranes (Roseville, Australia). Additional visits totaling no more than 3 months may be made to the University Grenoble Alpes when needed. Furthermore, a varied pedagogical training programme will be offered to the successful candidate throughout the 3-year PhD project.
