PhD position available on 3D printed disease model design
|Sub Research Field:
A joint PhD position between CICbiomaGUNE and POLYMAT is available. The research, which will be carried out under the supervision of Dr. Dorleta Jimenez de Aberasturi (CICbiomagUNE) and Dr. Irune Villaluenga (POLYMAT) revolves around the development of hybrid smart inorganic-organic bioinks for the development of 3D printed cell models
The project, is focused on the development of 3D printed realistic disease models from the cardio-pulmonary system. Within this project, the proposed PhD research will focus on the development of hybrid printable bioinks and on the fabrication of an alveoli air-blood barrier model for drug testing studies.
Required Education Level:
A Master degree in a relevant area of Chemistry, Biomedical Engenieering, Materials Science or related areas is required and experience in the fields of nanomaterials and/or polymer science, and cell culturing is highly desirable.
The candidates are expected to have interest in multidisciplinary work, motivation to learn from a diversity of scientific areas and the capacity to work in an international environment. Good interpersonal skills as well as written and oral communication skills in English are required.
