NEW! Post-doctoral position available in Toulouse: Using low-frequency magnetic field and magnetic nanoparticles for the destruction of cancer cells: setups, theory and experiments

8/2/2017

 Scientific context

Magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) have currently many applications in biomedicine : they
are used for imaging, to improve gene transfection, for bio-separation and for tissue engineering[1]. With respect to cancer therapy, different ways to kill tumour cells using magnetic nano-objects have been reported. The most studied so far is magnetic hyperthermia, which consists in rising the temperature of a tumour using MNPs injected intra-tumorly. MNP heating is induced by the application of high-frequency magnetic fields. More recently, the destruction of cell membranes using the motion of magnetic disks bound to them using slowly varying magnetic fields have been reported [3,4]. Since then, several groups have shown that MNPs can also be used to induce cell death using such low-frequency magnetic fields [5-11]. The present post-doc aims at working on this latter approach.
Administrative aspects
The funding is for a duration of three years. It could be cut in renewable contracts of one
year. The post-doc contract should start the 1st of November, 2017.
Application
Please send resume, publication list and motivation letter to Julian Carrey
(julian.carrey@insa-toulouse.fr) before September, 15th, 2017.
