Biofabrication PhD student and post-doc positions. The Department of Complex Tissue Regeneration (... (# of pos: 3)

Updated: 2 months ago
Job Type: Temporary
Deadline: 30 Aug 2021


Research at CTR is driven by technology development for the fabrication of biological constructs. The technological bases at the department for the fabrication of such constructs are:

  • Additive manufacturing technologies for building functional 3D scaffolds, such as 3D fiber deposition, bioprinting, and digital light processing;
  • Advanced electrospinning technologies for generating extracellular matrix-like fibrous meshes.
  • Fabrication of highly functional film-based biomedical microdevices by micro and nanoscale 3D forming and superimposed patterned surface and bulk modification of thin polymer films;
  • Engineering of artificial cellular microenvironments and of in vitro 3D tissue and organ analogues using the aforementioned 3D film micro- and nanotechnologies
  • Lithography for multiscale hierarchical 3D substrates, e.g. 3D nanoimprint, 3D deep UV or 3D X-ray lithography.
  • Bottom-up tissue engineering based on micro and nanoengineered objects as cell-assemblable instructive microscaffolds.
  • Scaffold-free, self-assembled 3D tissues/organ spheroids.

Candidates for the PhD position in the field of robotics & mechatronics (PhD 1) should have a M.Sc. degree in mechanical engineering, control engineering, automation engineering, or applied physics, with already proven experience in developing robotic systems, and in particular additive manufacturing technologies. Excellent and proven knowledge of scientific English both in speaking, reading, and writing is required.

Candidates for the PhD position in the field of biomaterial chemistry (PhD 2) should have a M.Sc. degree in chemistry, chemical engineering, materials science, or biomedical engineering, with already some experience in material synthesis, blending, and characterization thereof.

Candidates for the Post-doc position in the field of mathematics, modeling, and software development (Post-doc 1) should have a M.Sc. degree in mathematics, physics, or engineering, and a Ph.D. intimately close to the post-doc description. Proven experience in modeling, generation of coding, applied mathematics, and software development is also required.
