Ghent UniversityZwijnaarde, Gent (Belgien)
Postdoctoral vacancy (3 years) on design of 3D printed medical devices
Last application date: July 30, 2019 Department: TW11 - Department of Materials, Textiles and Chemical Engineering Employment category: Doctoral fellow Contract: Limited duration Degree: PhD in Biomedical or Mechanical Engineering or equivalent by experience Occupancy rate: 100% Vacancy Type: Research staff
The European INTERREG project 3DMed aims to improve affordability and large-scale accessibility of medical treatment using 3D printed devices. This will be achieved by increasing the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of state-of-the-art 3D printing technologies for medical applications and integrating them into a streamlined, fast, cost-effective software platform for use in routine clinical practice. This project contains 17 partners from The Netherlands, Belgium, France and United Kingdom, including universities, hospitals, software suppliers, 3D printing companies, clinical observers, manufacturers of medical devices and implants,... The project is coordinated by TUDelft.
In this Postdoctoral position, it is the purpose to develop patient-specific design and finite element modelling of 3D printed orthoses and prostheses (an orthosis is an externally applied device used to modify the structural and functional characteristics of the neuromuscular and skeletal system, while a prosthesis an artificial device replaces a missing body part). This position requires an in-depth knowledge of advanced design, finite element modelling and topology optimization, based on the processing and segmentation of patient-specific medical images.
Who do we look for?
Only candidates with a PhD degree or equivalent experience should apply. The candidate should have a strong background in design and FE modelling for medical applications. He/she will closely work together with the other postdoc in the team (see other vacancy) and is willing to travel frequently to meet and discuss with the other project partners in the neighbouring countries.
What do we offer?
you will be working in a dynamic environment. Our group has expanded quite fast the last few years and currently, 14 postdoc's and 15 PhD students are working in our group. Besides, 18 PhD students have successfully obtained their PhD degree in the last five years,
The salary for postdoctoral researchers starts at 2450 EUR net income per month. That is the amount of money that is deposited on your bank account every month (after taxes). If you have a dependent wife/husband and/or children, the salary is raised. Also seniority can be taken into account if you can show former relevant experience.
Ghent is a lively city in Flanders, the Dutch-speaking region of Belgium (https://stad.gent/ghent-international). It has a rich culture and counts about 250,000 inhabitants. Due to the university presence, it counts a large population of young students and researchers. It is a very bike-friendly city, with very good tram and bus connections.
