A Research of the Center position is offered for a postdoctoral researcher with expertise in flow cytometry who can support different research projects with this knowledge.

The main functions of the position are:

  • Management of the cytometry and cell sorter facility.
  • Support researchers in the development of experiments in the areas of immune, osteoarticular, cancer, neuronal and pregnancy-associated diseases.
  • Ability to write projects for public funding (Anid or Corfo).

Benefits: The economic conditions will follow the market and capabilities of the candidate.

The Universidad de los Andes has shuttle buses to its headquarters, details of which can be found on its website: www.uandes.cl.

Duration: This offer is for one year, but it should be considered that the IMPACT Center has several research areas, so there are high possibilities of extending the work, depending on the capabilities and interests of the candidate.

Location of the postdoctoral position: Av. Mons. Álvaro del Portillo 12.455, Las Condes, Santiago, Chile.

Requirements:

  1. To be in possession of a Ph.D. degree in Biotechnology, Biochemistry, or related fields.
  2. Have 4 years or more of demonstrable experience in flow cytometry and cell sorting.
  3. Research in Immunology and autoimmune (preferably Lupus), osteoarticular, cancer, neuronal, and pregnancy-associated diseases.
  4. Preference to researchers with Fondecyt initiation or regular awarded.

Receipt of applications electronically: Those interested should send the following documentation to Diego Castro at e-mail dcastro@regenero.cl.

  1. Curriculum Vitae and list of publications, indicating the contact information of two references.
  2. Contact information of two references.

Selection: The pre-selected applicants will be invited via e-mail to an interview by the jury, composed of interview by the jury, made up of the principal investigators of the project.

Deadline for applications:

  • Applications will be received until July 26, 2022 (included).
  • Consultations: Consultations will be accepted until July 26 through the e-mail dcastro@regenero.cl.

Other important dates:

  1. Pre-selection and first stage notification: July 28, 2022.
  2. Results information: July 31, 2022
  3. Probable date of incorporation: August 2022

We offer a job for technical assistance with a salary between 800.000 and 900.000 chilean $ (depending on previous experience of the candidate). The candidate should be a biologist, biotechnologist, biochemist or similar. He/she will be involved in a project aimed at developing a cellular biosensor to diagnose monopolar depression versus bipolar disorder (in its depressive phase). For this, we are developing a cellular sensor that detects pro-inflammatory cargo (proteins, miRNAs) present in extracellular vesicles derived from the plasma of these patients. In addition, Raman spectroscopy will be applied to the vesicle samples. We plan to advance with machine learning and to end up with diagnostic prototypes. 

Working place: Centro de Investigación e Innovación Biomédica, Universidad de los Andes, Av La Plaza 2501, Santiago, Las Condes, Región Metropolitana.

Expired on: Jun 27, 2023

Research objective: The objective of the work and research is to develop new deep learning (DL) based knee MR image segmentation and analysis methods to aid early diagnosis, kinesiological prevention, regeneration monitoring and rehabilitation. 

Job Description: 

  1. Perform a literature review of the state of the art in DL-based knee MRI segmentation and análisis
  2. Perform a review of available public knee MRI databases
  3. Collect, curate and prepare data provided by our clinical collaborators at Universidad de los Andes
  4. Implement and evaluate the most promising DL methods on public data and Chilean patient data. It is necessary to have experience and a high interest in performing scientific research. It is also necessary to understand signal processing and deep learning, it is desirable, but not necessary, to have knowledge in MRI. In our group there are researchers who can provide specific expertise in each of these topics. Finally, we are looking for someone who has a high interest in learning, who is responsible, proactive and willing to collaborate. 

Term and conditions: This offer is for one year, but it should be noted that within the IMPACT Center we have several research areas so there are high possibilities of extending the work, depending on the capabilities and interests of the candidate. The economic conditions will be according to the market and the candidate’s capabilities. 

Other Opportunities. Opportunities and funding are available for Master’s or Doctoral theses on this topic.
