In collaboration with a team of biologists, we are developing new therapeutic approaches to combat chemoresistance in cancers. In this context, we are recruiting an organic chemist to lead the design and synthesis of hybrid organic-inorganic nanostructures featuring anticancer properties. Thus, the core of the project will concern the synthesis of organic oncoprotein ligands (to be set up or reproduced). A second crucial aspect of the project will concern the chemistry of nanoparticles (mainly silica) and their functionalization by previously prepared organic molecules. The involvement of the post-doctoral fellow in transdisciplinary meetings with our biologists, the interpretation of the data and their valorization (communication, publication or patent) will also be required.

Chemical risks and their prevention

Work Context

Biomolecules are complex organic molecules (composed of carbon and hydrogen, but also oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur, etc.) that are found only in the living world, since they are formed by the organism itself. These are, for example, molecules such as DNA, RNA, proteins, sugars, lipids... The Max Mousseron Institute of Biomolecules (IBMM or UMR5247 CNRS-Université Montpellier), whose director is Professor Pascal Dumy, is an international research institution and one of the 4 founding institutes of the Balard Chemistry Pole of Montpellier. Research activities focus on essential biomolecules such as lipids, nucleosides, nucleotides and nucleic acids, peptides and proteins, glycosides, biopolymers, prebiotic molecules and fluorinated molecules. The research programs conducted around biomolecules concern their design, synthesis and pharmacology. These biomolecules and their families of compounds are used as basic molecules in pharmacology for the study of physiological and pathological mechanisms associated with them, they are also the essential molecules precursors of future drugs. IBMM's research activities are located at the interface of chemistry and biology, they aim to study and understand the mechanisms of action of biomolecules and the treatment of human and animal pathologies (infectious, cardiovascular, degenerative, cancer...) with applications in the molecular medicine of tomorrow. At the same time, these biomolecules are intended to be used in wide fields of application such as cosmetology, agriculture, agronomy and the veterinary industry which respect the environment and are part of sustainable development (green chemistry). The recruited postdoctoral fellow will conduct their research activities in the Department of Amino Acids, Peptides and Proteins: https://ibmmpeptide.com/
