Closing date: 2023-03-31
Friedrich Schiller University is a traditional university with a strong research profile rooted in the heart of Germany. As a university covering all disciplines, it offers a wide range of subjects. Its research is focused on the areas Light—Life—Liberty. It is closely networked with non-research institutions, research companies and renowned cultural institutions. With around 18,000 students and more than 8,600 employees, the university plays a major role in shaping Jena’s character as a cosmopolitan and future-oriented city.
The Otto Schott Institute of Materials Research seeks to fill the position of a
commencing at the earliest possible date.
We offer a full-time position (40 hours per week), limited until 31.01.2025.
Funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), this project focuses on three-dimensional (3D), highly porous and cellular bioactive glass scaffolds for tissue regeneration. By using an approach which combines new scaffold geometries with inorganic functionalisation to obtain compositional gradients, we aim to create scaffolds with improved mechanical stability.
As our new postdoctoral researcher, you will prepare and characterise such scaffolds consisting of different glass types (e.g. silicate and phosphate) and investigate their sintering behaviour including inherent diffusion processes. In addition, you will investigate ion release and mineralisation during in vitro immersion experiments.
This project is a collaboration with the Group of Cellular Ceramics and Simulation at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg and the Biomaterials Laboratory at the University Hospital Jena.
This is a full-time position (40 hours per week), limited to 31.01.2025.
Candidates with severe disabilities will be given preference in the case of equal qualifications and suitability.
