Open Position for a PhD Student in Biophysics

Join us in the exciting field of

Extracellular Vesicles Modifications for Future Drug Delivery Systems under the supervision of Prof. Ewa Stępień.

this project is financed by the prestigious

NCN OPUS grant 2022/45/B/NZ7/01430

🔬 About the Project Our project focuses on the interdisciplinary research of extra-cellular vesicles (EVs) and their application in drug delivery, nanomedicine, and advanced therapeutics. We aim to use nanotechnology to better understand, diagnose, and treat diseases with interests in EVs and their advantages in cancer treatment.

🎓 Education Programme The successful candidate will be admitted to the education programme Biophysics in the Doctoral School of Exact and Natural Sciences at Jagiellonian University. The language of education can be either Polish or English.

💼 Role and Responsibilities

  •     Design, optimize, and validate EVs system as molecular imaging agents and drug carrier.
  •     Conduct cell culture studies using cell lines, primary cultures, and/or patients' tissues for efficacy evaluation.

📚 Requirements

  •     Master in Pharmaceutical Sciences, Pharmacology, Biology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Immunology, Bioengineering, Chemistry, or related fields.
  •     Proven track record in conducting high-quality biological or chemical studies.
  •     Hands-on experience in advanced cell culture techniques and molecular biology experimentation techniques like PCR, gels, Western blotting, Immunohistochemistry, and flow cytometry.

💰 Stipend The selected candidate will receive an additional stipend.

👩‍🔬 About the Supervisor Prof. Ewa Stępień is a professor of medicine and medical physics at the Marian Smoluchowski Institute of Physics. Her work lies at the intersection of data analysis, clinical science, and molecular biology methods. She is a pioneer in the development of application of positronium atoms as sensors of early tissue alterations at the intra-molecular level and application of extracellular vesicles for diagnostics.
