Postdoctoral position in NMR metabolomics of stem cell differentiation

Postdoc position in NMR metabolomics of stem cell differentiation:

"A Postdoc position is available at the Department of Chemistry and CICECO-Aveiro Institute of Materials, at the University of Aveiro, in Portugal, for an estimated duration of 24 months.


The NMR metabolomics and tissue engineering groups are looking for a highly motivated doctorate researcher to be contracted to work on the development of a bioreactor based on stem cell metabolic markers for the guided production of bone tissue. This work is funded by the Operational Program Competitiveness and Internationalization, in its FEDER/FNR component, and the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (POCI-01-0145-FEDER-028835), through the BIOIMPLANT project on “A Metabolomics-guided Bioreactor for Improved Engineered Bone Implants”.


Our lab combines significant expertise in NMR metabolomics (Professor Ana M. Gil) and in the field of state-of-the-art tissue engineering strategies (Professor Joao Mano). This project pioneers the use of metabolomics to guide stem cell differentiation into osteogenic lineage, to find metabolic biomarkers of differentiation performance. The interdisciplinary nature of the project calls for a candidate ideally with a biochemical orientation and some experience, or at least a strong interest, in NMR methodology.


Potential candidates should hold a doctorate degree in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Biomedical Engineering or Bioengineering (or related scientific area).
