PhD position on Computer mechanobiology of mandibular reconstruction @Charité

A PhD position is available within the Computational Mechanobiology Group (Prof. Sara Checa) at the Julius Wolff Institute (Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin). This position is funded through a research grant from the German Research Foundation (DFG) to investigate the biomechanics of mandibular reconstruction with fibular free flap. The aim is to use computer modeling approaches supported by clinical data to understand the mechanical conditions promoting mandibular repair.


The successful candidate will have a strong background in one or more of the following areas: mechanics, computational biology and/or computational mechanics. Strong programming and computer modelling skills are required. The position is available for three years.


The work will be conducted in an interdisciplinary research environment composed of engineers, biologists and clinicians. As a PhD student, 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 by 1st June, 2021. Applications should be sent to: Prof. Sara Checa (sara.checa@charite.de)
