The Sound Guided Tissue Regeneration (SGTR) Focus Area is part of the Regenerative Orthopaedics Program. Under the lead of Prof. Tiziano Serra, it is a leading group in the biofabrication and biomaterial research areas. The focus of the group is to explore and develop innovative biofabrication technologies for tissue modelling and regeneration.
The successful applicant will be working within a multidisciplinary team investigating extrinsic fields-based biofabrication technologies (e.g., hydrodynamic waves, magnetic, light) and stimuli-responsive materials for contactless cell assembly and stimulation.
The position offers the opportunity to develop research ideas and the potential to integrate into established international networks, both in academia and industry. The ideal candidate will be enthusiastic, creative and have excellent communication skills. You will also be expected to contribute to the supervision and teaching of PhD and Master's students in the research team.
This is a temporary (fully office based) role, for a period of 3 years, located in Davos (CH).
