PhD position (f/m) in the area of magnesium implant imaging
Published(469 days ago)
Deadline for applications(447 days ago)
The European Training Network "MgSafe" (MSCA-ITN)verschiedene Standorte
The European Training Network "MgSafe"
is offering in total
15 PhD positions
in the area of magnesium implant imaging
The EU-funded MSCA-ITN ‘MgSafe‘ investigates a novel combination of imaging technologies for biodegradable magnesium implants in order to promote patient safety.
The PhD candidates will quantify the physical impact and suitability of a variety of modalities on Mg implants. Highly sophisticated imaging techniques (nano and µCT, MRT, PET, USPA, IR) will be developed beyond the forefront of medical device production. This will be done in vivo and with in situ labelling options to deliver non-invasively data on different time and length scales. The body reaction and material behaviour will be investigated during Mg degradation with a precision and plethora of details, which is currently not available.
We are looking for highly motivated candidates for the following PhD projects (please find a more detailed project description on the projects website www.mgsafe.eu/vacancies).
Excellent job opportunities in attractive and well-equipped research groups (e.g. nano and µCT, MRT, PET, USPA, IR, microscopy, cell culture and corrosion laboratories)
Intense exchange with researchers located in eight European countries
Comprehensive academic support program including subject-specific courses, soft skill training, research stays abroad, individual career coaching
3-year employment contract, salaries according to the EU MSCA-ITN regulations
Your general qualifications (for the specific requirements of the 15 positions refer to the projects website www.mgsafe.eu):
