Title:
Green implantable electronics for regenerative medicine

Research area and project description:
We seek a talented PhD candidate on green implantable electronics for regenerative medicine, funded by Novo Nordisk Foundation. Regenerative medicine is paving the way to generate functionality of biological tissues via imitating cellular, biochemical, and mechanical cues that can be integrated by employing materials science and bioengineering methods. In this regard, bioelectricity is a quintessential characteristic of living organisms and has a crucial role in physiological and medical sciences.

The rapidly increasing demand for electronic medical devices comes at a time when environmental and interplanetary pollution are at an all-time high. It is becoming ever-more necessary to consider the sustainability and life cycle of emerging implantable electronics. The project aims to apply innovative electrospinning technology to explore novel synthesis of bio-sourced polymeric nanogenerators based on conversion of mechanical energy to electric energy as implantable electronics for regenerative medicine.

In the PhD project, you will explore novel synthesis, physicochemical, mechanical, and electrial characterizations, and exploitation of biocompatible green implantable electronics for tissue regeneration, in vitro 3D culture for cardiac and neural tissue biofabrication, electrophysiology and cellular biology characterizations. The project will also involve collaborations with research groups in Germany, Israel, UK, China and USA.

Project description
For technical reasons, you must upload a project description. Please simply copy the project description above and upload it as a PDF in the application.

Qualifications and specific competences:
We are looking for a motivated candidate with a recent Master’s degree in biotechnology, nanotechnology, molecular biology, biomedicine or biomedical engineering with an excellent and documented exam record.
Candidates with previous knowledge in biofabrication, electrospinning, microfluidics, hydrogel materials and electrophysiology will be preferred.
