Assistant engineer: optimization of tumour spheroids for the evaluation of new therapies


Start date: January 2022

Contract duration: 13 months

Laboratories : LAGEPP CNRS UMR 5007 and ILM UMR5306 – UCBL – CNRS

Supervision: Dr. Giovanna LOLLO, Dr. Thomas Dehoux


In the context of a project PlanCancer two laboratories will work together:


LAGEPP-Equipe Gepharm: The LAGEPP-Equipe Gepharm is dedicated to the study innovative systems as nanomedicines fort the encapsulation of therapeutics

ILM: iLM is a laboratory specialized in physics and chemistry and is developing research on the evaluation of spheroids properties



The project is aimed at optimizing tumour spheroids as tools for the evaluation of new therapies based on nanomedicines.

The recruited engineer will study in vitro the efficiency of different nanosystems using biological and biophysical methods. He will have to apply analyses adapted to this specific study.


Mission descriptions:

  • Preparation of nanomedicines and spheroid characterization
  • Data analysis
  • Comprehension and development of experimental plans with statutory researchers and post-doc
  • Participation in the drafting of protocols with statutory researchers


We are looking for a profile with solid foundations in:

  • Formulation
  • Writing and analysis of technical reports
