Post-doctoral researcher in Microelectromechanical Organs-on-Chip

TU Delft, Delft, the Netherlands, 17/12/2020

Description

Within the Netherlands Organ-on-Chip Initiative (NOCI), the ECTM group at TU Delft is looking for an enthusiastic post-doc to supervise and expand ongoing activities in innovative and scalable microelectromechanical organ-on-chip devices (OoCs), and to contribute pro-actively to bring the devices to full fruition for biological applications within the NOCI.

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.

Requirements
The 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.

The position is immediately open, and will be filled as soon as the fitting candidate is found.
