Funded by Tecnologías 2018 or/and by Synérgicos 2018, we offer a predoctoral contract to carry out a PhD Thesis on “New Technologies Applied to Study Biological Nanomachines involved in DNA repair” at The National Center of Biotechnology (CNB-CSIC), Madrid. The contract will be associated to Granted Projects P2018/NMT-4443 and Y2018/BIO-4747.
The project will employ and develop combined fluorescence and single-molecule techniques to study DNA-protein interactions involved in DNA repair processes related to cancer. The project will be done at the CNB-CSIC (Madrid) under the supervision of Dr. Fernando Moreno-Herrero.
How to apply
Candidates should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org including a complete CV, and an academic certificate with marks and the average mark of the degree before April 2019.
Candidates must have a Master´s degree either in Physics, Biology, Biophysics or related subjects by September 2019. Physicists with interests in biology or biologists interested in mechanics and biophysical processes and techniques are encouraged.
