The INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials in Saarbrücken, Germany, is an internationally leading center for materials research, a scientific partner to national and international research institutions, and a provider of research and development for companies throughout the world. The INM is an institute of the Leibniz Association and has about 250 employees.
The INM's research group Dynamic Biomaterials develops hydrogels to encapsulate and interface living cells. One exciting research line involves synthetic hydrogels containing light-responsive functionalities, and their application as cell-instructive materials for in vivo cell-based therapies for regeneration. To fully develop these materials into future technologies and therapies, we are looking for a PhD candidate interested in interdisciplinary and translational work between medical and materials sciences. This project is embedded in a collaboration between INM and medical partners at University Clinic Homburg.
PhD Student Tissue engineering and/or cell therapies (m/f/d)
(starting date: asap, salary level 13 TV-L 50% (with potential increase during the project), 39,5h/week, 3 years).
- background in (human) cell biology or bioengineering with experience in in vitro cell culture
- previous experience in in vivo work is an added benefit
- self-motivated, good interpersonal, communication skills
- proficiency in English
The project is part of a cooperative program and the candidate is expected to closely interact with the involved partners in a proactive manner. Training and supervision in the different fields will be provided directly by experts within the consortium.
