2 postdoc positions on computational modeling of Achilles tendon mechanics and/or mechanobiology @Lund University

We are hiring two ambitious and curious post-doctoral researchers in computational modeling of tendons. This position is within the ERC-funded project (Tendon_MechBio) with the scope to elucidate how mechanical loading affects tendon mechanics and tendon regeneration. The modeling will be based on unique experimental data collected within the team. We would like to employ two postdoctoral researchers with the following two aims. 

  1. To develop detailed structural and anatomical computational models of the tendon tissue, in order to understand how mechanical loading influences tendon function, structure and composition. The computational modeling will be based on unique collected experimental data of collagen fiber structure and. The detailed structural models will be key in the project to elucidate the mechanisms guiding the tendon organ and tissue level response to load.
  2. To investigate how mechanical loading influences healing tendon function, structure and composition. The project includes further developing and validating an existing adaptive mechanoregulatory model for tendon repair. This will be based on collected experimental data. The developed computational scheme will be important for the project to elucidate the mechanobiological mechanisms at play.

Applicants can present preferences between aim 1 or 2, or state interest in both options.
