Project: Mesoporous and self-assembled molecular transporters as drug carriers and other low molecular weight chemical species.

Postdoctoral scientists will participate in one year-long research project (with possibility of extension to three years) in which the main objective is to recognize and describe the mechanisms, which decide on the final architecture, functions and applicability of molecular transporters, belonging to the group of self-assembling peptide systems, and porhyrinoid-peptide conjunctions, as well as the interactions of the respective transporters with the transported small chemical entities (drug molecules, metal ions, gases).

Benefits

1. Opportunities to acquire skills in the field of mechanosynthesis and extensive characterization of diverse organic compounds.

2. Acquiring or extending the skills of using NMR techniques (in particular Solid State NMR).

3. Funds for visits to other laboratories to conduct measurements, and for attending scientific conferences.
