Postdoc position in Organs-on-Chip technology

Job description

Within the Netherlands Organ-on-Chip Initiative (NOCI) funded by NWO, the ECTM group at TU Delft is looking for enthusiastic & motivated researchers to develop innovative wafer-scale microfabrication technologies for advanced silicon- and biodegradable technology-based Organs-on-Chip (OoC).

OoC systems are microfluidic cell culture devices that recapitulate in vivo-like microenvironments to support the expression of properties and functions of human tissues and organs. Such microphysiological systems represent more realistic models than existing in vitro cell cultures, which should enhance pre-clinical screening of the effect of drugs and other compounds on the human body. In the past five years, the ECTM research within the NOCI consortium has introduced significant technological innovations in geometry, actuation, sensing and readout for OoC. Our grand, multi-disciplinary challenge is building on top of the knowledge and expertise matured so far to bring OoC technology to the next level. This will be achieved by devising novel materials, actuation and sensing solutions to stimulate and monitor organ properties in wafer-scale microfabricated platforms.

The position will focus in particular on the development of three-dimensional microelectrode arrays for monitoring the electrical activity of tissues.

Department

Faculty Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) brings together three disciplines - electrical engineering, mathematics and computer science. Combined, they reinforce each other and are the driving force behind the technology we use in our daily lives. Technology such as the electricity grid, which our faculty is helping to make future-proof. We are also working on a world in which humans and computers reinforce each other. We are mapping out disease processes using single cell data, and using mathematics to simulate gigantic ash plumes after a volcanic eruption. There is plenty of room here for ground-breaking research. We educate innovative engineers and have excellent labs and facilities that underline our strong international position. In total, more than 1,100 employees and 4,000 students work and study in this innovative environment.
