The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Technische Universität Darmstadt offers a vacant position as
starting as soon as possible.
The assistant professorship will be established to open up innovative
technological application fields in biomedical printing technologies at
the Department of Mechanical Engineering.
Technological platforms based on the printing technology are to be
explored, developed and operated on a laboratory scale for biomedical
applications. On these platforms, among other things, biomolecules,
living cells, polymers and metals are to be combined to complex
structures and characterized for biomedical applications. This is accompanied
by the modeling and simulation of the underlying technological
correlations. The defined structuring of surfaces, the modification of
surfaces, the dosing of fluids, the fluid handling as well as the 3d-printing
of biofunctional structures pose high demands on the technology
and require a profound interdisciplinary understanding.
Candidates must hold an excellent Ph.D. or equivalent in engineering
or natural sciences. The professorship will take responsibility for
teaching at BSc. and MSc. levels for students of Mechanical Engineering
and other related study collaborations. Interdisciplinary courses
and cooperation as well as the commitment to an active participation
in the faculty and university self-government are expected.
The professorship is financed by funds from the "Bund-Länder-Programm
zur Förderung des wissenschaftlichen Nachwuchses".
