PhD and postdoc opportunities - February 2023

New research positions in the field of in silico medicine opened in the last month with deadlines late February-mid March

PhD Position MERLN | Computational modeling of fibrotic scarring

Department of Cell Biology-Inspired Tissue Engineering (cBITE) at the MERLN Institute for Technology-inspired Regenerative Medicine at Maastricht University - The Netherlands

The PhD Candidate will perform cutting-edge research in computational modeling methods applied to regenerative medicine and more specifically, to (fibrotic) tissue remodeling processes.

The research project aims to use in silico models to simulate physiological and fibrotic cell-ECM interactions, including dynamic tissue remodeling through ECM deposition and alignment, to improve our fundamental understanding thereof and use the obtained knowledge to design improved synthetic matrices.

Project description:

  • Computational modeling of tissue remodeling to inform the design of synthetic matrices
  • Multiscale modeling: coupling ABM to FEM to investigate the role of dynamic tissue compositions and alignment
  • Parameter optimization and sensitivity analysis
  • Analysis and integration of various in vitro/in vivo data for model calibration

Deadline for application: February 28, 2023 at 23:59
