Nanoparticles improve our everyday life – they make touch screens conductive, increase the storage capacity of batteries, reduce adverse effects of drugs, and make consruction elements lighter and more stable. As more and more people get in contact with nanomaterials, it is important to ensure safe production and safe use of nanomaterials. The topic is therefore relevant in research, regulatory, and societal settings. With the project NanoS-QM we want to develop and test quality standards and curation criteria for nanosafety research data. They will serve as a basis for reproducible, traceable research and improved risk assesment and regulation.
The research group Nano Cell Interactions at INM – Leibniz-Institute for New Materials in Saarbrücken is looking for a scientist or postdoc (m/f/o) with a background in biology, chemistry or pharmacy to develop and test quality standards and curation criteria for research data from nanosafety research.
