Computer modeling of the mechano-biological regulation of angiogenesis
A post-doctoral fellowship is available within the Computational Mechanobiology Group at the Julius Wolff Institute (Charite Medical School in Berlin). This position is funded through a collaboration grant (Research Unit 2165: Regeneration in Aged Individuals) from the German Research Foundation (DFG) to study the mechanical regulation of sprouting angiogenesis during bone regeneration. Research goals are being addressed through a combination of in vitro/in vivo experimentation and computer modeling.
The successful candidate will have a strong background in one or more of the following areas: mechanics, bioinformatics, computational biology and/or computational mechanics. Strong programming and computer modelling skills are required. The position is available for two years with an option to renew provided that adequate progress is made and that the project funding is continued.
The work will be conducted in an interdisciplinary research environment composed of engineers, biologists and clinicians. As a postdoc you will be associated to the Berlin-Brandenburg School of Regenerative Therapies (www.bsrt.de) and benefit from the interaction with international scientists.
Interested candidates should submit their curriculum vitae and two references by August 31, 2018. Applications should be sent to: Prof. Sara Checa (firstname.lastname@example.org)
