The “Hybrid Technology Hub” Centre of Excellence at Oslo University Hospital and University of Oslo, Norway is currently accepting applications for a postdoctoral fellow.
The newly established interdisciplinary Centre headed by Prof. Stefan Krauss is located at the Institute of Basic Medical Sciences at University of Oslo, with partners at the University of Glasgow (Prof. Nikolaj Gadegaard) and Imperial College, London (Prof. Molly Stevens). The overall objective of the Hybrid Technology Hub is to develop innovative “organ-on-a-chip” formats by exploring embryonal processes.
About the job
The position at the Krauss laboratory will focus on developing an innovative human lung-on-a-chip platform that should serve as a model for virus induced Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). We may pursue two strategies i) embryonic self-organization with a supporting microfluidic platform ii) a membrane based approach on a novel PDMS free platform. The work will be embedded in an interdisciplinary team working on platform design, iPS derived organoids, sensor development and imaging.
