CiQUS addresses challenges in Biological and Medicinal Chemistry, New functional Materials and Synthetic Technologies. We consists of 18 research groups that were awarded 11 ERC projects: 1 SyG, 1 AdG, 1 CoG, 4 StG, 4 PoC. CiQUS´ researchers obtained 8 MEUR/year in competitive funds (2019-2021), reaching an average Impact Factor of 8,04 (JCR) during the same period (up to Sep, 21)
The group of Prof. Javier Montenegro is seeking for:
A Postdoctoral associate with strong background in Chemical Biology/Biochemistry/Immunology.
This is an excellent opportunity to join the Montenegro lab and work in a multidisciplinary team in a great challenge for the development of new peptide vectors for nucleic acid immunotherapy. The aim of the project is to identify new peptide and structural motifs to control the membrane translocation nucleic acids (e.g., mRNA) for the development of vaccines against cancer.
A Doctoral candidate with background in Organic Chemistry and/or supramolecular and peptide chemistry.
The aim of the project is to develop and investigate new biomolecular scaffolds with supramolecular folding capacities. Alpha helical peptides, coiled coils and self-assembling molecules.
