Descripción de la oferta de trabajo:
Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for a position funded by the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (MSCA-ITN) project “Training4CRM” within the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Union. The appointment will be on a temporary basis for a maximum period of 3 years (PhD student) with start September 2017. The student will be employed as an industrial PhD by the company FelixRobotics, IJsselstein (Utrecht) in The Netherlands, and be enrolled as a PhD student at the Dept. Micro and Nanotechnology, Technical University of Denmark (DTU Nanotech). FELIXrobotics BV develops, produces and sells premium desktop 3D printers directly to end consumers or via reseller network worldwide. Aside from the standard product portfolio, FELIXrobotics is able to provide special solutions in the field of 3D printing since the company has all disciplines in house from development up to manufacturing. DTU Nanotech is a research institute at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and represents a cross-disciplinary research environment where micro- and nanotechnology are applied to a wide range of scientific disciplines, e.g. mechanics, optics, chemistry, medical technologies, and biotechnology. Training4CRM is a four-year project, funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 Programme (H2020-MSCA-ITN-2016) under the MSCA-ITN Grant Agreement No. 722779. The project is highly cross disciplinary and focuses on bridging the existing gaps within Cell-based Regenerative Medicine (CRM) for treatment of neurodegenerative disorders (e.g. Parkinson´s (PD), Huntington´s (HD) Epilepsy (EPI)) by joint training and education of 15 PhD students within and across different scientific disciplines. The goal is to master the design, fabrication, integration and testing of completely new tools and materials within the fields of micro and nano engineering, biotechnology, and pre-clinical research. The Training4CRM network comprises 6 academic institutes and 3 industry partners from 6 European countries (Denmark, Spain, Sweden, Norway, Italy, and the Netherlands). Responsibilities and tasks The intended PhD student will be a member of this multi-disciplinary team and will be responsible for developing a novel hybrid 3D printing/bioprinting technology, combining different 3D printing techniques in the same printer, as well as using it to fabricate perfusable 3D hybrid scaffolds that incorporate in the same scaffold different material properties. The candidate must meet the following requirements: •Participate in training events for researchers and Principal Investigators involved in the training4CRM program •Reporting to the Supervisors and Project Coordinator, which includes contributing to periodic scientific reports •Contributing to the reporting of project milestones and deliverables in accordance with EU deadlines •Spend required external research stays (secondments) at the project pre-defined partners of Training4CRM; a maximum of 10 months •Promoting and disseminating results involved in the program, which includes contributing to newsletters and participating in outreach events •Desire and ability to collaborate in a multidisciplinary team •Desire and interest in working in industrial setting. Qualifications Candidates should have a master's degree in engineering (or a similar degree) with a background in (Bio)Mechatronics, Mechanical engineering, Electrical engineering, Biomedial Engineering, Polymer Science, or Soft Materials Engineering. Relevant scientific background, including at least two but preferably several of the following: •Experience in additive manufacturing, i.e., 3D printing, bioprinting •Experience in instrument fabrication •Experience in developing electronic control systems •Experience in polymers/hydrogels •CAD design (e.g. SolidWorks) Essential: •Less than 4 years full time equivalent research experience and not yet been awarded a doctoral degree (PhD) •Reside
