Postdoctoral position in new chemical mechanisms for actuation and locomotion in microrobotics : Pontedera at Italian Institute of Technology
The Center for MicroBioRobotics@SSSA of the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) http://mbr.iit.it, directed by Dr. Barbara Mazzolai, aims at developing innovative methodologies and robotic technologies, new materials, and advanced components, both for the design and construction of high performance bio-inspired machines and systems at the micro scale, and for the development of devices for biomedical, environmental, and rescue applications.
The mission of the Center is to generate and promote new scientific and technological knowledge in the microbiorobotics field, which is fully deployed by inventions deriving from an interdisciplinary approach to the tackled scientific problems. The scientific activities are carried out within the MicroRobotics and the Smart Materials Platforms.
Fully-funded PhD Scholarship at Cottingham Rd, Hull, North Humberside HU6
Iron-based nanoparticles with tunable magnetic and surface properties for imaging of heart failure. To celebrate the University`s research successes, the University of Hull is offering one UK/EU PhD Scholarship for candidates applying for the following project Superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPION) are becoming increasingly popular for use in biomedical applications such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for the detection of diseased tissues.
For example, low concentration biomarkers can be difficult to detect because of the limited sensitivity of the MRI equipment, however, the signal intensity of MRI can be improved by introducing SPION as a contrast agents. Moreover, SPION can be directed specifically to the in vivo target through the application of a magnetic field or the modification of their surfaces with specific binding groups that interact with the target tissue. 1 Hence, it is crucial to design nanoparticles with tuneable magnetic properties and surface functionalisation to obtain optimum MRI contrast.
Rothamsted International Fellowship Scheme for Developing Countries
The primary objective of this prestigious Fellowship Scheme is the exchange of vital scientific skills and technologies relevant to the agricultural and environmental needs and aspirations of developing and emerging countries. Fellowships are funded by charitable donations;
they are available to scientists of proven ability, working in developing or emerging countries, to pursue research with scientists at Rothamsted for periods of up to one year. It is expected that Fellows will return to their home country at the end of the Fellowship period.
