Openings at ECTM
Post-doctoral researcher in Microelectromechanical Organs-on-ChipOpening for: Postdoc
|Announced:||01 Jan 2021|
OoCs are microfluidic cell culture devices that provide dynamic in vivo-like microenvironments to realistically recapitulate in vitro the (patho)physiology of human tissues and organs, and thus enhance pre-clinical screening of the effect of drugs and other compounds on the human body. The Cytostrecth developed at TU Delft is an optically- and electrically-addressable platform where tissues can be grown, perfused with nutrients, and subjected to electro-mechanical stimuli. ECTM’s ongoing multi-disciplinary activity aims at going beyond the Cytostretch with research along four concurrent directions that take advantage of the unique silicon/polymer-based microtechnology developed at ECTM.
RequirementsThe ideal candidate will have strong competence in microfabrication and material science, as well as prior direct experience with or strong proclivity to-wards tissue engineering and collaboration with biological laboratories. Solid communication, writing, and collaboration skills are a mandatory requirement. Prior experience with student supervision and project management is preferred.
Candidates with strong interest and motivation are encouraged to apply or inquire further by contacting the ECTM and NOCI PIs Prof. P. M. Sarro (p.m.sarro AT tudelft.nl) and Dr. M. Mastrangeli ((m.mastrangeli AT tudelft.nl). Applications must include the candidate’s curriculum vitae, list of publications, motivation letter, and list of potential references. TU Delft offers competitive working conditions for employees in an international and stimulating environment.
