Postdoctoral position: Membrane-based nano-mechanobiology 866 views

The Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO) is offering a postdoctoral position to a well-qualified, highly motivated and dynamic young scientist who wish to enhance his/her scientific career in a friendly, international and stimulating environment within the field of Nano-MechanoBiology.

About the position:
  • The successful candidates will be joining The Single Molecule Biophotonics research group at ICFO, led by Prof. Dr. Maria García-Parajo.
  • He/she will be part of a recently granted Advanced ERC project aimed to study how adhesion receptors of the immune cells sense and respond to mechanical stimuli by changing their nanoscale organization and dynamics on the cell membrane and how this affects mechanotransduction and cell response.
  • The project will combine super-resolution microscopy, single molecule imaging, molecular and cell biology and will primary focus on cells of the immune system.
  • The contract is offered for periods of one year, renewable for a total of up to 3 years.


  • Candidates must hold an internationally recognized PhD equivalent degree (or evidence of its completion in the nearest future) preferably in cell biology, single molecule biophysics, super-resolution microscopy or related fields.
  • Candidates should have a proven track record of excellence in experimental research.
  • Strong background in integrin biology, cell mechanics or mechanotransduction is highly desirable.


Apply online submit the following:

  • Presentation letter with a declaration of interest
  • Curriculum Vitae, including contact details
  • The contact e-mail of two potential referees
