JOB POSTING – POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW
Scientific Area: Material Sciences; Biomaterials; Biotechnology; Pharmaceutical Sciences; Tissue Engineering and Wound Healing.
Research Topic: Development of antimicrobial drug delivery systems for the treatment of wound infections and the development of relevant in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo wound infection models. Project is carried out as part of the Estonian Research Council funded project PRG1507.
Description of Duties: Post-doctoral position is available in which the candidate will conduct innovative research on developing delivery systems for antimicrobial peptides. The latter involves both the preparation and testing their bioactivity and safety. The successful candidate will be part of an interdisciplinary research team at the University of Tartu involving pharmacists, molecular biologists, immunologists, biochemists, dentists and medical doctors. Our work involves collaboration with academic as well as industry partners from around the world. Research project is focused on using antimicrobial peptides for the treatment of wound infections and developing novel therapeutics. In addition, novel wound infection models will be developed which enable to study these wound preparations in more biorelevant conditions
