We are currently recruiting an engineer or postdoc to work on an applied interdisciplinary project to develop a new method to purify cells and organelles using homemade functionalized microparticles. In addition to this, we are aiming, in a side projects, at developing nanometric liquid particles to be used as calibration particles for optical devices.

The project will take place at the heart of Paris, at the new dependencies of the Institut Pierre Gilles des Gennes for Microfluidics (IPGG).

It involves the Institut Curie (Pablo Vargas, for immunology and cell biology) and the Pôle Microfluidique of the ENS Chemistry department (Jacques Fattaccioli, for chemistry and particle formulation).

The candidate should hold a M.Sc., engineering degree or PhD in formulation, biophysics, soft matter science or related fields, have a strong interest for applied research. A background in surface functionalization, colloidal particles formulation, and cell culture would be a plus.


Interested candidates should send a cover letter explaining their relevant work experience, a curriculum vitae and contact details of two references by e-mail to Jacques Fattaccioli (jacques.fattaccioli@ens.fr)
