The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Technische Universität Darmstadt offers a vacant position as

Assistant professorship
(W2, Tenure Track) of BioMedical
Printing Technology
(Code. No. 528)

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".
Regulations on the maximum period of scientific activities after the acquisition of the PhD degree as well as all additional requirements for employment are subject to § 64 section 3 HHG in the respective current versions. The assistant professorship is designed as qualification professorship as per § 64 HHG. For the position the option for a tenured full professorship after a successful tenure procedure is given.
