Two visiting scientists positions in Kanazawa, Japan : Toshio ANDO lab

We will invite two visiting scientists or students from overseas to our Bio-AFM Frontier Research Center (FRC). You can learn
how to operate the high-speed AFM system from experts and then perform HS-AFM imaging experiments by yourselves on
the proteins that you are willing to study. The length of stay is at least a month, any time within the period from December
1st, 2017 to March 31st, 2018. Longer stay (but less than 3months) is possible within this period. We will support visitors’
travel and accommodation expenses up to 500, 000 JPY per visitorand materials (except your target proteins) that you need for
your experiments. Applications should be submitted by e-mail to Toshio Ando (
until November 20th, 2017, together with your short CV anddescriptions (within 1-2 pages) of your experiments to be done
in the Bio-AFM FRC (background, purposes and others).

PhD Position in Marseille (post Mach 31, 2105)

There is a PhD position opening in Simon Scheuring lab doing high-speed AFM.

Interested young colleagues can apply over the INFORM LabEx Network PhD program  or send a message to simon.scheuring at .


Post-doctoral position in Physical Chemistry of Biointerfaces available at the Department of Chemical Sciences of University of Catania (Italy).
Title of the research project: Multifunctional nanoplatforms for drug delivery
Tutor: Cristina SATRIANO, Ph.D. (

The research activity tackles the development and physico-chemical characterization of biocompatible nanomaterials for application as nanocarriers for controlled transport and release of biomolecules and active molecules. 
The applicant will address the preparation and functionalization of different nanoparticle-based systems, both natural and synthetic, thus the set up of strategies for their loading and/or surface functionalization with the biomolecules of interest. Several spectroscopic and microscopic techniques will be used for the physicochemical characterization at the biointerfaces, including laser confocal microscopy (FV1000-Olympus) and atomic force microscopy (Cypher-Asylum Research)
