La Universidad de Navarra es una institución que desde sus orígenes ha estado siempre comprometida con la investigación, tanto en áreas científicas como humanísticas.

El compromiso continuo con la investigación y el afán de mejora a todos los niveles le ha llevado recientemente a sumarse a las iniciativas europeas denominadas "Carta Europea del Investigador" y  "Código de Conducta para la contratación de investigadores”.

Portada_GeneralDesplegable_SelloHR

Siguiendo las recomendaciones de la Comisión Europea, la Universidad creó a mediados de 2016 un grupo de trabajo conprofesionales de diferentes áreas y responsabilidades dentro de la investigación. Su trabajo en una primera fase ha consistido en el análisis interno en base a los principios establecidos tanto en la Carta Europea como en el Código de Conducta, elaborando un diagnóstico y definiendo un plan de acción que próximamente serán publicados.

La Universidad de Navarra ha decidido sumarse a estas iniciativas mediante la carta de adhesión convencida de que su capital humano es su valor más importante, y de que el éxito depende en gran medida de la satisfacción profesional y personal de nuestros investigadores, profesores y personal de soporte.

  • EU RESEARCH FRAMEWORK PROGRAMME: HE / MSCA

  • LOCATION: Pamplona, Spain

  • DEPARTMENT: Pharmaceutical Technology and Chemistry

  • LABORATORY: Nanomedicines and drug delivery


Hosting Institution:

The University of Navarra (UN) is among the top 100 universities in the world in 6 areas of the QS rankings, and 7 of their teaching areas are among the best in the world according to the Times Higher Education rankings. The high percentage of international students make our institution strongly committed to multicultural dimension. Moreover, the number and quality of scientific papers point out the excellence of the research carried out in UN.

The candidate would apply for the MSCA postdoctoral fellowship to be incorporated into the group Nanomedicines and drug delivery of the Faculty of Pharmacy and Nutrition, placed in the campus located in Pamplona (Navarra) under the direction of Professor María Blanco-Prieto.

Prof. María Blanco-Prieto (researchgate.net scholar.google.com) heads a consolidated and international research group focused in the field of biomaterials and advanced drug carrier systems with extended experience in European projects and world-wide collaborations. In brief, their expertise is in the design and development of polymer and lipid based micro- and nanoscale carriers, their biological evaluation in in vitro cell cultures (toxicity, mechanism of action, intracellular drug release) and also their pharmacokinetic and dynamic impact in vivo (using relevant animal models of the diseases). These micro and nanosystems are prepared using non-toxic, biocompatible and biodegradable biomaterials. Research carried out in this field is mainly applied to cancer, infectious, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases. The main objectives are to target the molecules to their site of action (i.e. cancer cells), to decreases the toxicity of anticancer drugs, to improve the oral absorption of poorly absorbed drugs, to protect fragile molecules like cytokines (for cardiac tissue regeneration) or neurotrophic factors (for brain tissue regeneration) from degradation in the body and to achieve a controlled and sustained release of the entrapped molecules over the time. Spanish and English are both working languages

Offer description:

Cardiovascular diseases remain the leading cause of death worldwide despite the massive efforts in R&D. At present, there is no sustainable regenerative therapy available for myocardial infarction (MI), being cardiac transplantation the only therapeutic option. Tissue engineering (TE) is envisioned as a true regenerative therapeutic alternative. However, the limited regenerative capacity of existing cardiomyocytes together with challenges associated with the translation and scale-up of the developed TE strategies have limited the expansion of cardiovascular regenerative medicine. In this project, we hypothesize that an advanced biomaterial based on nanostructured and vascularized HGs loaded with cardioprotective/cardioregenerative miRNAs will be able to contribute to efficient cardiac repair. The nano reinforcement will provide not only mechanical support and better replication of the structure of the cardiac tissue but also miRNA-controlled release. The nanostructured HG will have morphological, mechanical and functional properties similar to the heart. To further enhance the functionality and pro-regenerative action of the HG constructs they will be pre-vascularized. Once optimized and validated in a relevant animal model of MI, a product prototype will be developed with a translational and business mindset. The project conducts cutting edge research that spans from the synthesis and formulation of tissue-engineered medicines to their advanced in vitro and in vivo characterization.

Requirements of the candidate:

The candidate should preferably have experience working with biomaterials, in cell biological research and animal studies and have a strong motivation and team spirit with the enthusiasm to bring scientific questions to successful conclusions.

Specific requirements for MSCA-PF-2022 application:

• PhD obtained not earlier than 14/09/2014. Exceptions apply for maternity leave, EU researcher in a non-EU country and other reasons (consult the contact person)

• The candidate must not have lived or performed his/her main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Spain for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the deadline for submission of proposals (14/09/2022).

Applications: documents to be submitted:

Interested candidates should apply to mjblanco@unav.es with a covering letter and a detailed CV, including a brief description of interests, research accomplishments and contact information of three references. It is recommended to contact as soon as possible in order to have time to prepare a winning proposal with the deadline of the call in mind, 14th September 2022.

Research project description

The placement of obstacles in front of doors is believed to be an effective strategy to increase the flow of pedestrians, hence improving the evacuation process. Since it was first suggested, this counter-intuitive feature is considered a hallmark of pedestrian flows through bottlenecks. Our experimental findings also reveal an unnoticed phenomenon in relation with the crowd movement in front of the exit: in competitive evacuations, an obstacle attenuates the development of collective transversal rushes, which are hazardous as they might cause falls.

We are looking for a motivated candidate who wish to add her/his efforts to the background of the Universidad de Navarra researchers in this area, to achieve new solutions to be applied into buildings.

Research project description

We are looking for a motivated candidate who wish to build a ground-breaking method of scientific research based on creativity, innovation and a holistic approach of the 'nature' laboratory to be applied to architecture.

The proposal must facilitate an unconventional approach and investigations at the interface between biology and architecture. The models to develop, the methodology created and the foreseeable solutions to obtain will allow opening new lines of work in other areas of need of the buildings and cities, from natural models with a high efficiency in all areas, and opens the doors for its application to other disciplines of knowledge. This new model would be based on creativity and innovation, forcing interested researchers to get out of their traditional research guidelines and open new scientific challenges, which will result in the quality of research and the results achieved.

The strategies for thermal regulation and environmental control found in nature are countless. In the proposal, a parallelism between biodiversity and building energy systems will be defined in order to identify and emphasize the immediate opportunities that biomimicry offers for future research. The motivation was the need to find alternative solutions to tackle problems mainly in the efficiency of heating, ventilation and cooling systems.

Research project description

Researchers have spent decades exploring strategies for reducing energy consumption in buildings worldwide, proposing passive solutions and optimizing active systems. However, no breakthrough technology has been developed. The use of thermoelectricity in buildings for heating, cooling and ventilation has been proposed as an alternative solution to many systems anchored in our day-to-day. The advantages of thermoelectricity such us the non-use of refrigerants or the high durability, makes this technology an alternative solution to consider, of which interest is growing in line with recent studies.

We are looking for a motivated candidate who wish to develop new prototypes and solutions based on this technology, using the 10 years experience of the Universidad de Navarra in this area.

Research project description

We are looking for a motivated candidate who wish to develop a holistic delivery system with UAVs in high density urban environments, where façades can interact with drones, allowing the reception and delivery to the house itself.

The proposal includes an element which can receive the package and maintain it in temperature-controlled conditions until the client arrives home. The system implies a coordinated challenge among several fields: electronics, informatics, UAVs, delivery companies, but also thermal control, architecture… The aim is to achieve an implemented delivery system which will avoid traffic jams and pick-up points, thus facilitating delivery not only for the companies involved but also for the customers, who will only have to install the final container on the façade.

Research project description

Methane is one of the main greenhouse gases, and its emission has increased by more than 100% in recent decades. The people, almost 7,500 million, produce methane by our own metabolic activity. However, there are no reliable studies on the quantitative emissions of methane by humans and how they vary depending on different aspects, such as diet or disease. In addition to its involvement in global warming, methane released by people has caused some serious incidents in indoor atmospheres, such as operating rooms, due to its high flammability.

We are looking for a motivated candidate who wish to analyze in energy, construction, economic and regulation terms, the feasibility of use the methane generated in buildings (focusing on residential) for its utilization as a support for heat production systems (energy resource use) or to produce other bioproducts (such as bioplastics, organic acids or vitamins). In parallel, but no less important is to reduce the release of methane into the atmosphere.

Research project description

The research questions of the project are as follows: What is the relationship between the epigenetics of cancer and the variables of air quality in buildings and cities? What is the methodology to be followed to analyze this relationship? That is, to discern which human pathologies in the field of cancer epigenetics may be due to different types of architectural and urban realities.

It is a complex project, with a clear and necessary multidisciplinary vocation, on the frontiers of knowledge of medicine. Thus, the objective of this first phase is the development and validation of a methodology that allows determining whether the levels of pollutants that citizens are exposed to daily in their work, study and home environment, can represent a danger to health in the long and short term.

This methodology will include a systematized compilation of data related to the field of health, architecture and urban planning through clinical samples, air quality measurements and interviews about lifestyle in the urban environment. The interpretation of all the data will be managed through the use of Geographical Information Systems computer tools, such as QGIS or ArcGIS.

It is a clear, robust and replicable methodology to:

  • Evaluate occupational exposure to contaminants in indoor spaces.
  • Take personal samples to confirm direct exposure.
  • Analyze the spatial, architectural and urban distribution of pollutants.
  • Identify the most affected areas and their possible source of emission.
  • Evaluate the influence of meteorology on concentration levels.
  • Establish the degree of occupational exposure.
  • Compare the results obtained with other studies carried out in Spain and with current legislation.

Finally, by georeferencing all these data, the developed methodology will be used to detect which urban factors might affect a disease. This data analysis can shed light on the link between the disease and its architectural and urban environment, in order to detect which external factors affect the development of a disease.

Research project description

Low-cost sensors are the boom in the monitoring of pollutants either indoors or outdoors, providing information on air quality in real time and very localized. Their low cost makes them accessible to the general public. Although their presence in the market, the existence of studies on sensors that cover the monitoring of pollutants that go from indoors to outdoors is practically unknown, as well as how to manage the integration of different sensors.

We are looking for a motivated candidate who wish to develop and integrate the necessary tools for a correct quantification of pollutants originating from the exhalation of buildings, contributing to the identification of potential health effects of poor air quality and the recommendations to be followed to protect it.

Documents to provide

Interested candidates should apply to cmargom@unav.es with CV and letter of motivation. Include a concept note of the research proposal (up to 1 page).

Hosting Institution:

The University of Navarra (UN) is among the top 100 universities in the world in 6 areas of the QS rankings, and 7 of their teaching areas are among the best in the world according to the Times Higher Education rankings. The high percentage of international students make our institution strongly committed to multicultural dimension. Moreover, the number and quality of scientific papers point out the excellence of the research carried out in UN.

The candidate would apply for the MSCA postdoctoral fellowship to be incorporated into the Centre for Nutrition Research of the Faculty of Pharmacy and Nutrition, placed in the campus located in Pamplona (Navarra). 22 Researchers are currently working in this Centre.

The hosting group offering this proposal has been working in meat product reformulation strategies for more than 20 years, thus gaining long experience in the strategies needed to obtain healthier foodstuffs. Some of these scientific and technological approaches have also been more recently applied by our group to other food sectors (bakery) and also to the design of products with particular nutritional needs (dysphagia oriented formulations). Additionally, extended experience in lipid quality and stability evaluation can be highlighted.

The senior scientists involved in these research areas are I. Astiasaran (Orcid: 0000-0002-3500-180X) and D. Ansorena (Orcid: 0000-0002-3103-687X).

Offer description:

The candidate would work in the design, development and quality evaluation of plant based foodstuffs, as sources of sustainable healthy food.

The transition from animal to plant-based protein is an effective approach to tackle the growing demand and interest of consumers in vegan or flexitarian dietary patterns. Environmental and health reasons support the recommendation of decreasing meat and meat products consumption and their replacement by vegetable alternatives. However, although research has been done in this field, still several challenges remain unresolved. Current products struggle to meet nutritional requirements and to show appealing consistency, taste, juiciness and texture. New protein sources and new ingredients, as well as new production methods, will be explored in this project to deal with these issues. For that purpose, the previous experience of the group in the development of vehicles and delivery systems for bioactive compounds (fatty acids, sterols, proteins, fibre) will be applied.

Moreover, the influence on bioaccessibility and nutritional role of the new formulations will be evaluated. In this case, our previous works related to the optimization of “in vitro digestion” methods, as well as their application to vegetable extracts assessment will be of great value.

Keywords: Plant protein, Meat analogues, Bioaccessibility of bioactive compounds
