Postdoc position at Weizmann Group

We are looking for highly motivated individuals, passionate and enthusiastic postdocs who enjoy working in a collaborative and productive environment are welcome!

Research in the Weizmann group is based on a multidisciplinary field interfacing biology, chemistry, nanotechnology, and materials science. This exciting frontier offers unparalleled opportunities for designing groundbreaking advances in medical diagnostics and research
platforms. My research is concerned with the application of plasmonic nanoparticles and nucleic acids with the aim of exploring and exploiting nanoscale advantages in the world of material chemistry, to address significant chemical, biochemical, and technological problems. By approaching nanoscience from a multidisciplinary perspective, integrating biomaterials, inorganic materials, and small molecules via noncovalent and covalent interactions, we can develop new hybrid materials with emergent properties.

We are always looking for driven and self-motivated individuals who enjoy scientific challenges.
In particular, curious minds interested in:
1. DNA Nanotechnology: Design and applications of novel complex molecular topologies using nucleic acids and their biological consequences.
2. Synthesis, purification, and functionalization of metallic nanoparticles for studies relating to self-assembly, plasmonics, and biomedical applications.
3. Design and development of light-based biosensors for real-time bioassays using
photothermal nanoparticles.

Applicants should have a strong background in one of these fields:

  • DNA Nanotechnology
  • Nano-bio interface
  • Molecular biology
  • Materials Science
  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Electronic-devices and Circuits
  • Electro-optics
