PD scholar sought with interest | Engineering & 3D Bio-Printing

Published

Research / Academic

Maastricht

Description:

The Department of Complex Tissue Regeneration (CTR) is looking for a post-doctoral scholar (2 years plus 1) to join a team designing dynamic (supramolecular, dynamic covalent) soft materials for additive manufacturing and regenerative medicine. We have received recent funding to create novel materials to advance the fabrication of adaptable tissue constructs towards soft organ regeneration, and to unravel cell-material interactions with such dynamic soft matter.  

Current biomaterials are typically static, while the biomaterials in the human body are inherently dynamic. We have a team that is directly tackling this discrepancy by utilizing spatiotemporally and mechanochemically tunable hydrogels for cell culture and 3D bioprinting. The successful PD candidate will be responsible for designing, testing, and fabricating with these materials towards more complex 3D printed and multi-cellular constructs. These hydrogels are currently based on self-healing, shear-thinning, and reversible supramolecular interactions and dynamic covalent chemistry – exciting new areas of responsive biomaterials.

Requirements:

Candidates should have a PhD degree in bioengineering, cell-biology, chemistry, materials science, or closely related field, with an affinity for tissue engineering. A background in cell-culture or biofabrication utilizing novel and custom materials is highly valued. Additionally, chemists with a high affinity towards tissue engineering will also be considered strongly. Additional knowledge on hydrogels, biomaterials design, and synthetic materials is a plus, yet is not necessary.

Evidence of interdisciplinary thinking is a must. We are looking for creative thinkers who are prepared to take on highly challenging aims. The project will be very collaborative, with core competencies of materials design, cell-material interactions, and bioprinting. This position will best suit an ambitious candidate who likes an open and fast-paced environment. Excellent knowledge of scientific English for speaking, reading, and writing are required. Knowledge of Dutch is not considered when evaluating this position.

Salary Benefits:

Doing a PD in the Netherlands

For those unfamiliar with the Dutch system, PD candidates are full employees with pension benefits and full vacation. This position will be offered for two years, with a yearly evaluation, and a chance for temporary extension. The salary will be set according to the salary scale of the Collective Labour Agreement of the Dutch Universities (CAO-NU). Depending on experience level, this is generally in the range of 2.640–4.166 EUR per month (pre-tax). On top of this, there is an 8% holiday and an 8.3% year-end bonus. Applicants from other countries who relocate are eligible for a 30% ruling, where 30% of your income is tax-free. In addition to the CAO-NU, local UM provisions also apply (see www.maastrichtuniversity.nl,). For any questions, please contact Dr. Matthew Baker.

PhD position at the intersection of Work and Organizational and Clinical Psychology with an interest in the link between work stressors and eating behavior at the Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience

Published

on

By

Research / Academic
Maastricht

Description:

Unhealthy eating habits have been shown to lead to major health impairments, such as obesity and coronary heart disease. An important risk factor for unhealthy eating is the experience of stress. Although a major source of stress in individuals’ daily life is their work, knowledge about the effects of work characteristics on eating behavior is still scarce. The goal of this Ph.D. project is to investigate the role of work demands and resources for (un)healthy eating behavior as well as the underlying psychological mechanisms and boundary conditions involved in these links. We are looking for a Ph.D. candidate with an interest in work and organizational as well as clinical psychology who is highly motivated and possesses excellent statistics skills. The Ph.D. student will work under the supervision of Dr. Ute Hülsheger, Dr. Annika Nübold (Department of Work and Social Psychology) and Dr. Sjaan Nederkoorn (Department of Clinical Psychological Science) at the Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience at Maastricht University. The project combines expertise from both departments and requires interest in both areas, i.e., work demands and resources and eating behavior.

Requirements:

  • Very good Master’s degree in Psychology;
  • Excellent quantitative research and data analytic skills; experience with data analysis software beyond SPSS will be considered favorably (e.g. R, Matlab, Mplus)
  • Excellent scientific writing skills;
  • Excellent self-management skills and high levels of proactivity and conscientiousness
  • Demonstrable interest in work and organizational as well as eating behavior research;
  • High proficiency in English is expected; Dutch language skills are of advantage

Salary Benefits:

Temporary employment for 4 years.

Your salary would be € 2.266,- gross per month in the first year up to € 2.897,- gross per month in the fourth year according to the PhD-student salary scale.

Each year an evaluation will take place.

The terms of employment of Maastricht University are set out in the Collective Labour Agreement of Dutch Universities (CAO). Furthermore, local UM provisions also apply.
