PhD position in Materials Science/ Bioengineering/Pharmacology research

anr

A PhD position supported by the National Agency for Research (Agence Nationale de la Recherche, ANR) grant “Programmed drug release via rolled-up biopolymer capsules” is available at the Institute of Materials Science of Mulhouse , France (http://www.is2m.uha.fr/) under the direction of Dr Valeriy Luchnikov, a member of the “Wetting and Self Assembly” research group. The successful candidate will also work with Pr. Thierry Vandamme, Faculty of Pharmacy of the University of Strasbourg.  This position at the interface between material science and pharmacology research will start the 1st september 2018. This is a full-time position for a maximum of three years.

PhD researcher will participate in a project devoted to the development a novel drug administration approach for chronomodulmated therapies, which take into account the circadian biorhythms of the human body.  The release of drugs will be time-programmed via complex spatial distributions of the drugs in the biopolymer capsules. The experimental research will be accompanied by theoretical analysis and by computer simulation. This project will have a significant impact on the materials engineering sector and on the health sector. When realized, the technology for time-programmed drug release can lead to considerable improvements in quality of life and the wellbeing of the patients (less of adverse and/or undesirable, toxic effects) who should take medicaments known for their chronopharmacokinetic properties.

Candidate should be motivated, adaptable, and willing to integrate a multidisciplinary team, open to new ideas and concepts. The experience of work with the biosourced polymers (chitosan, alginate, gelatin, cellulose, etc) and bioadhesives will be appreciated. The acquaintance with the spectroscopic methods (UV-VIS, IR, Raman) is highly desirable.

The application (including a CV, a recommendation letter from the master thesis supervisor, and university examination results) has to be made electronically and sent by email to valeriy.luchnikov@uha.fr. Contact person for information: Dr. Valeriy Luchnikov, Institute de Science des Matériaux de Mulhouse, Mulhouse, France. Tel: +33(0)3 89 60 87 10
