PhD Students: Nano-biotechnology - CIC nanoGUNE Consolider Research Centre in San Sebastia

The Nano-Bio Energy Conversion and Vectorisation Group at the CIC nanoGUNE Consolider Research Centre in San Sebastian is currently looking for motivated

PhD Students
(Graduates of Biophysics / Physics / Physical Chemistry)

who are interested in working in an inspiring international and interdisciplinary environment in the area of development of nano-bio hybrid materials build from semiconductor or metallic nanocrystals and photochromic membrane proteins. The proposed research should provide novel materials with desired energy transfer, photovoltaic and optical switching properties. The research project will start from functional bio-adaptation of nanocrystals and characterisation of their physical and optical properties followed by specific tagging of nanocrystals with desired molecular groups of photochromic membrane proteins. The major part of research will include detailed analysis of energy transfer processes on the nanoscale using the state-of-the-art biophysical characterisation techniques. The result is expected to yield the prototypes of novel nano-bio materials which should have a numerous applications in optoelectronics and photovoltaics.


Candidates should have a background in biophysics and/or physical chemistry. Experience in optical microscopy and spectroscopy would be preferred but is not a prerequisite. Proficiency in spoken and written English is and obligatory condition.

The candidate should be self-motivated, a team player, and wiling to learn new experimental techniques from biophysics to nanoscale physics.

Applicants should forward their CV to:
Prof. Igor Nabiev

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
