The Department of Biomedical Engineering of the Eindhoven University of Technology aims at research and education on the edge between biology and engineering, with a focus on the human body. High end research is performed in our shared state-of-the-art laboratories and students are challenged to work in these laboratories. Practical courses are done in the SkillsLab, whereas project work and research is conducted in the Laboratory for Cell & Tissue Engineering and Laboratory for Biomechanics.
We are searching for a research engineer with an affinity for training who will work in all three labs. The current tasks of this position will be divided between supporting research, laboratory infrastructure/processes and courses. The focus will be on advanced mechanical testing platforms, uCT, custom bioreactors and materials processing platforms and their use with natural tissues and tissue engineered constructs. In the labs, you will be responsible for specific equipment maintenance, supervision and training and some general lab management. The research will span across topics in orthopaedics, cardiovascular, ophthalmology, nervous and other soft connective tissues. You will be embedded in the orthopaedic biomechanics group but be active across all groups in the Regenerative Medical Engineering cluster and work with the academic staff, support staff, post-doctoral fellows, PhD candidates and master’s and bachelor’s students in our department.
