Are you passionate about high quality research and eager to join a biomedical engineering team conducting research? We are searching for an expert in tissue biomechanics/mechanobiology interested in supporting our team, our lab and helping to guide our students.

Job description

The Department of Biomedical Engineering of the Eindhoven University of Technology aims at research and education on the edge between biology and engineering, with a focus on the human body. High end research is performed in our shared state-of-the-art laboratories and students are challenged to work in these laboratories.

We are searching for a research engineer with an affinity for training who will work in the Laboratory for Biomechanics, Biomaterials Processing Laboratory and the Laboratory for Cell & Tissue Engineering. The current tasks of this position will be divided between supporting research and laboratory infrastructure/processes. The focus will be on advanced mechanical testing platforms, uCT, custom bioreactors and additive manufacturing platforms and their use with natural tissues and tissue engineered constructs. In the labs, you will be responsible for specific equipment maintenance, supervision and training and some general lab management. The research will span across topics in orthopaedics, cardiovascular, ophthalmology, nervous and other soft connective tissues. You will be embedded in the orthopaedic biomechanics group but be active across all groups in the Regenerative Medical Engineering cluster and work with the academic staff, support staff, post-doctoral fellows, PhD candidates and master's and bachelor's students in our department. Your responsibilities are expected to combine laboratory management and equipment support (0.5-0.6 fte) and research support (0.2-0.3 fte).
