OPEN POSITIONS – 3D scaffolds

2. Title: Fabrication and characterization of 3D scaffolds tor tissue engineering (3positions)

Role: Full-time PhD Student based in Warsaw, POLAND.

Project description: The project aims to develop 3D polymer based scaffolds for tissue engineering, their modification with bioactive compounds, scaffolds characterization and optimization.

Key skills:

  • High level of critical thinking and strong academic merit in engineering and design; brilliant problem solving; outstanding communication; an ability to work independently and as part of a diverse team.

Essential background:

  • Master’s degree (including an appropriate research component) in one of the following disciplines: Mechanical/Chemical/Material/Biomedical Engineering; Biomedical Sciences.

Key tasks:

  1. Developing specifications for scaffolds by investigating literature.
  2. Generating concept designs and design elements.
  3. Using current and emerging 3D printing techniques for manufacturing scaffolds from degradable polymers.
  4. Scaffolds modification with bioactive compounds and/or drugs.
  5. Evaluation of scaffold topology, mechanical properties and effect of engineered surfaces on in vitro performance.
  6. Computational and statistical modelling.
  7. Morphological characterisation using SEM, micro CT and other techniques,
  8. Mechanical testing.
  9. In vitro testing, imaging, and analysis of biological performance.
  10. Generating journal publications.

Dates: Start as soon as possible, 3 years full time.
