Research Centre: International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory - INL
Location: Braga, Portugal
Department: Life Sciences
Unit: Nano4Health
Career Stage:  4-8 years research experience after PhD
Closing Date: September 15th 2016 23:00 (Lisbon time)
Salary: Competitive package and benefits

Introduction

INL is seeking a motivated Staff Researcher with an extensive track record of experimental skills in optics and photonics, and/or medical imaging combined with training in optical signal treatment.

Cardiovascular diseases (CVD), including acute coronary syndromes (ACS) and stroke are among the leading causes of disability leading to 4 million deaths in Europe per year. Although current medicine allows for ACS therapies protocols, approximately 30% of the patients return to the hospital due to chest pain, and 10% develop new subsequent events. The need for further new medical evaluations in these patients may be related to the lack of treatment of non-severe coronary lesions detected by the existent technology like Computed Tomography (CT) scan or angiography, mainly because those imaging technologies cannot identify plaques with high inflammatory activity and risk of rupture, so called vulnerable atherosclerotic plaques. In fact it is estimated that 30-40% of patients that experience a sudden cardiac event, including sudden cardiac death, is related to vulnerable plaques existence. In those cases an early detection of these risk elements could substantially reduce those figures.

We aim to develop a novel diagnostic imaging device able to provide an accurate detection of unique anatomical disease markers (plaque features) and its biological activity in vivo.

Job Requirements and Key Responsibilities

The selected candidate will be responsible for the design and implementation of an optical probe system combining fluorescence spectroscopy and optical coherence tomography in the lab to test new biomarkers for vulnerable atherosclerotic plaques.  The goal is to mimic a clinical environment for intra-arterial imaging. Essential expertise for this task comprises extensive knowledge of optical components, including fibre optics.

Required Skills and Experience

- PhD in Optics/Physics/Medical Imaging or a related technical field;

- Over 4 years or more of active research after PhD in all or some of the following areas: Imaging Medical Devices, OCT, Probe-based Endomicroscopy, Fluorescence Imaging;

- Experience in optical signal acquisition and treatment will be positively valued;

- Experience in fluorescence spectroscopy or optical coherence tomography instrumentation development is welcome, while exposure to a cross-disciplinary research environment will be positively evaluated;

- The candidate should have demonstrated capability of group leadership and project coordination;

- The candidate is expected to participate and have experience in strategic decisions, production of technical and scientific documentation and planning of projects;

- Applicants are also expected to have high quality publications in international journals and to be competitive in obtaining external research funding;

- Applicants with international mobility experience will be highly evaluated.

Personal Skills

• Strong motivation to work both independently and as part of a team in an interdisciplinary environment, with the ability to pay close attention to detail and to meet deadlines.

• Excellent communication skills and experience in the dissemination of results to the scientific community are expected.

Languages

English is the working language of INL. Therefore, excellent communication skills in English are required.

What We Offer

- Tenure track with an initial employment contract.

- Competitive compensation package in line with those offered by other international research organisations.

Among them, magnetic hyperthermia (MH) has emerged, in recent years, as an experimental anti-cancer strategy. It exploits the local heat generated by MNPs in an external alternating magnetic field. MNPs as nanoheaters are synthetised and functionalised to selectively induce cancer cell death via hyperthermia. Phase I clinical trials showed MH treatment to be well tolerated with moderate side effects.

This project aims to assess the selectivity, toxicity and overall efficiency of MH-based therapy in ex vivo and in vivo cancer models.
