The applicant should be able to work effectively both individually and together with other researchers in a multidisciplinary context. The applicant should have very good communication skills and very good knowledge of English both verbal and written.

Responsibilities/Job Description

The PhD student will develop biohybrid materials based on plant cells with living characteristics such as growth, responsiveness, and evolution. The PhD student will be responsible for culturing plant cells, charactering their growth and properties and functionalizing them with technological materials. The biohybrid materials will then be developed via additive manufacturing techniques including bioprinting and their electrical, mechanical and evolving properties will be characterized. The research has interdisciplinary character including material-device characterization and plant biology. The PhD student will work closely with collaborators specialized in plant biology.

As a doctoral student, you devote most of your time to doctoral studies and the research projects of which you are part. Your work may also include teaching or other departmental duties, up to a maximum of 20% of full-time.
