Background

The Pheophotodyn project focuses on an « innovative non-drug therapy », the photodynamic therapy (PDT) consisting in the simultaneous action of a non-toxic molecule, the photosensitizer, light and oxygen. The process, used in dermatology or oncology, is limited owing to the induced photosensitivity of the patients. Pheophotodyn aspires to improve the efficiency of photosensitizers using tuned polymeric nanovectors based on photoactive polyoxazolines stabilized by photo-crosslinking, which constitutes a primordial step (better stability and enhanced efficiency) as we recently reported (accepted in J. Mat. Chem. B, DOI: 10.1039/C9TB00118B).

 

Program

In the frame of Pheophotodyn, we propose:

• To synthesize photoactive amphiphilic polymers based on polyoxazoline,

• To synthesize and scale up the production of photoactive crosslinkers in collaboration with Specific Polymers company, Specific Polymers company, Specific Polymers company, Specific Polymers company, Specific Polymers company,Specific Polymers company,Specific Polymers company,Specific Polymers company, Specific Polymers company,Specific Polymers company, Specific Polymers company,Specific Polymers company,Specific Polymers company,Specific Polymers company,Specific Polymers company,Specific Polymers company,Specific Polymers company, Specific Polymers company,Specific Polymers company,

• To study the self-assembly of these polymers as nanovectors for PDT.

Required qualifications

- PhD in Polymer Chemistry or Organic Chemistry with experience in polymer is required.

- The applicant should be open to work at the interface of polymer chemistry, physical chemistry of polymers and nanomedicine.

- Good communication, laboratory and organizational skills are required.

 

Additional comments

Beginning of the post-doctoral fellow: november 2019

Duration: 18 months

Net salary: 2200 euros/month
