Responsibilities/Job Description

We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher with a strong background in biomaterials or biomedical engineering, and preferably experience with (light-based) bioprinting. You will be investigating a cutting-edge light-based bioprinting technology to create 3D living matter. Specifically, you will optimize the photopolymerization of polymers for the rapid volumetric bioprinting of cell-laden biomaterials. The goal of the postdoc is to pioneer this first-of-its-kind technology, which is anticipated to result in several high-impact manuscripts.
