The project will focus on the design of three-dimensional hydrogel-based hybrid scaffolds for both soft and hard tissue regeneration through 3D printing, including chemical synthesis, scaffold fabrication, experimental characterization and mechanical simulations.
A strong polymer chemistry background and/or experience in 3D printing are preferred. The primary objective will be to plan, monitor and perform experiments within the scope of the assigned research project. Additional duties may include training and supervision of research staff and students.
- Ph.D. degree in Chemistry, Materials Science, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or related fields.
- Expertise/skills in the following areas are not mandatory, but desirable: polymer chemistry, hydrogel materials, composite materials, 3D printing, cell culture, cell characterization, mechanical simulation (FEA, MATLAB)
- Able to work independently and within teams
- Hard-working and able to meet deadlines
