University of Twente is looking for a PhD candidate to participate in a pan-European research program led by EPFL in Switzerland called Digipredict. You will be working on the development of ‘physical avatars’ of patients by developing microfluidic organ-on-chip devices of the heart that integrate patient samples. By linking the data from these physical avatars with data from clinical measurements, we will generate an accurate picture of how the disease is progressing in a patient and how well chosen treatments are working.
Deadline before February 14, 2021
The openings are for research positions within the field of mathematical or theoretical biology, computational physics, applied mathematics or computational science.
PhD 1: Cell-microenvironment Interactions in Tumor Angiogenesis
PhD 2: Functional-structural feedback in pacemaker development
Deadline January 15th 2021.
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. The position is immediately open, and will be filled as soon as the fitting candidate is found.
