📋 Job description and Main working tasks:
The advertised industrial doctoral position will be carried out at NANOMOL Technologies SL over a period of 36 months. The recruited researcher will be supervised by Dr. Lidia Ferrer-Tasies and work in the Research and Development department, led by Dr. Lidia Ferrer-Tasies. The doctoral candidate will be registered for the PhD programme at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, Spain, and will be co-supervised by Dr. Elisabet González from Institute of Material Science of Barcelona (ICMAB) of Agencia Estatal Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas (CSIC).
NANOMOL Technologies is a Spanish SME delivering advanced solutions to obtain high value-added products by particle technologies and nanoformulations. NANOMOL Technologies has already an operative contract analysis unit which is fully GMP compliant for the particle characterization of APIs and has already consolidated deep knowledge and understanding on particle size and shape analysis, complemented by a vast experience to characterize APIs, pharmaceutical intermediates and final formulations. Besides, Nanomol develops its proprietary robust green and sustainable DELOS platform, that uses compressed CO2 as solvent, for design, engineering and production of nano-pharmaceuticals, being experienced in formulation development and scale-up to pilot plant using QbD approaches for several kinds of APIs (small molecules to biologics) for different therapeutic applications through several administration routes.
In this regard, the specific project will focus on preparation of liquid formulations for oral delivery based on lipid DELOS nanovesicles integrating active compounds. Process parameters will be explored to enhance the encapsulation of these compounds in DELOS nanovesicles. The influence of operational parameters and critical material attributes on critical quality attributes (CQAs) will be evaluated following a Quality by Design strategy. In vitro studies will be evaluated to study the suitability of DELOS nanovesicles prototypes for oral administration.
The main working tasks of the advertised position are:
In the frame of the research project, short term (secondment) visits at other partners’ premises are envisioned. As per call requirements, candidate will spend at least half of the total contract time in a non-academic environment.
The candidate must not have resided or carried out his/her main activity (work, studies etc) in Spain for more than 12 months in the three years immediately before their date of recruitment. Compulsory national service, short stays such as holidays, and time spent as part of a procedure for obtaining refugee status under the Geneva Convention are not taken into account. For international European research organisations, international organisations, or entities created under Union law, recruited researchers must not have spent more than 12 months in the 36 months immediately before their date of recruitment in the same appointing organisation.
