We invite applications for a of a PhD Student position in experimental micro- and nano biomechanics. The PhD project to be conducted has two aspects:
Conducting scientific research on the mechanics of individual collagen-fibrils as well as micro-mechanics of collagen-rich tissues as a function of age, pathology or chemical modification. We have a number of ongoing research projects in this context such that this part can be shaped according to the interests of the successful applicant.
Further development of experimental testing devices for micro- and nanomechanical characterization of individual collagen fibrils and microscopic tissue samples. This is based on a unique mechanical testing device for nanoscale fibres developed in our group.
Definition of a PhD project, based on the interests and skills of the successful candidate in the areas of instrumentation and experimental mechanics
Execution of the project including writing of a dissertation
Participation in higher education teaching activities (lectures, tutorials, bachelor- and masters-thesis projects)
Writing and participation in writing of scientific publications
Presentation of research results at scientific conferenc
