PostDoc 3D Cell culture microfluidics

The Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany, invites applications for an

Interdisciplinary Postdoc position (salary grade E13 TV-TU Darmstadt) available immediately

The candidate will work in an interdisciplinary team formed by three different groups:

- Stem Cell and Developmental Biology (Prof. Ulrike Nuber)

- Nano- and Microfluidics (Prof. Steffen Hardt)

- Bioinspired Communication Systems (Prof. Heinz Koeppl)

The appointment is initially for 18 months with the possibility of an extension. The focus of our interdisciplinary postdoc project is the generation and application of a microfluidic system for three-dimensional stem cell cultures (organoids). This involves the production and evaluation of a new microfluidic system as well as the assessment of organoids grown in this system. The latter will be done by confocal fluorescence microscopy analyses.

We provide the possibility to perform research in an exciting interdisciplinary environment using very well equipped laboratories. Office and laboratory space for the candidate will be provided by all three groups and s/he is free to move between the groups during the whole project. Training in various modern technologies in the engineering and stem cell field will be provided.

Job description The successful candidate will conduct research projects on microfluidic systems for three-dimensional stem cell cultures.
