Open position for a PhD candidate on the project “developing next generation of precision biomaterials for tissue regeneration applications”, as part of Materials-Driven Regeneration (MDR) Gravitation program

Updated: about 2 months ago
Deadline: tomorrow

About the MERLN Institute and MDR program:

The researcher will be embedded in the Department of Instructive Biomaterials Engineering (IBE) at the MERLN Institute for Technology-Inspired Regenerative Medicine at Maastricht University. The research at MERLN (https://merlninstitute.com/ ) is focused on developing novel and breakthrough technologies to advance the field of repair and regeneration of functional tissues and organs. The research at IBE department (https://merlninstitute.com/discover-merln/departments-and-groups/ibe-department ) focuses on the development of regenerative therapies based on smart biomaterials and their complexes with cells and molecular cues, and on micro- and nanotechnology tools for regenerative medicine.

At MERLN, we offer an interdisciplinary and collaborative PhD project embedded into a highly international institute, which is one of the worldwide leading research institutions in the tissue regeneration field. Our modern laboratories include labs for materials synthesis and characterization, biofabrication/-printing, (clean room) micro-/nanofabrication, microfluidics, cell culture, histology, molecular biology, imaging/microscopy, all provided with latest-state-of-the-art equipment.

The Research Center for MDR (https://mdrresearch.nl/ ) is a partnership between Eindhoven University of Technology, Maastricht University and Utrecht University, University Medical Center Utrecht and the Hubrecht Institute. This consortium was brought together to advance tissue and organ regeneration approaches with the use of instructive biomaterials and funded by the ministry of education, culture and science of The Netherlands in the framework of the Gravitation program. The interdisciplinary team of researchers within the MDR consortium aims to focus on the research and development of new, intelligent materials that stimulate the regeneration of damaged or diseased tissues and organs.
