RWTH :PhD positions : Nano-Diagnostics and Nano-Therapeutics

PhD Studentships on Nano-Diagnostics and Nano-Therapeutics available at the Department of Experimental Molecular Imaging at the RWTH / Aachen University Keywords: Cancer; Imaging; Drug targeting; Nanomedicines; Liposomes, Polymers, Micelles; Chemistry; Material Science; Pharmacy; Pharmacology; Medicine The Rheinisch-Westfaelische Technische Hochschule (RWTH) is a world-renowned research university located in Aachen, Germany. With more than 30.000 students and more than 100 courses, RWTH ranks among the largest and most prestigious technical universities in Germany and in Europe. Since 2007, RWTH is part of the German league of Excellence Universities, and it holds strong reputation for chemical and medical research, material science, for mechanical and electrical engineering, and for computer science. At the Department of Experimental Molecular Imaging (ExMI ; headed by Prof. Fabian Kiessling) at the RWTH, several 3-year PhD studentships are now available for individuals interested in working on nano-diagnostics and nano-therapeutics, at the interface of chemistry, biology, medicine and material science. A secondary focus within the Department lies on the pharmacological and toxicological aspects of advanced diagnostics and therapeutics, and on the in vitro and in vivo evaluation (and visualization) of passively and actively targeted nanomedicines, such as liposomes, polymers, micelles and antibodies. Imaging techniques to be used include PET, SPECT, MRI, ultrasound and optical imaging, as well as immunohistochemistry and confocal microscopy. Experience in working with one (or more) of these visualization techniques would be advantageous. Talented, motivated and internationally oriented individuals with a background in pharmacy, pharmacology, (bio-) chemistry, (bio-) medicine or (bio-) technology, and with at least one year of relevant research experience, are invited to send their application, together with a CV, a letter of motivation, a summary of recent research experience, and the names of two independent referees via email to Dr. Twan Lammers: lammersaachen@gmail.com
