Postdoc Position in Nanobioengineering (Ref. PN-JS)


Application Deadline: 15/12/2015
Ref: PN-JS

The Nanobioengineering group at the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) , coordinated by Prof. Josep Samitier, is looking for a Postdoctoral position to participate iin organ chip Technology projects that can mimic various human internal organs or systems. The main activities of the group involve the surface functionalization of materials integrated with microfluidics systems for the study of biomolecule and cell interactions to develop Organ on Chip or for the development of new biosensors that will be integrated in lab-on-a-chip devices. The goal is to fabricate microsystems containing living cells that recapitulate tissue and organ level functions in vitro and new portable diagnosis devices that can be used as Point-of-Care systems.

Senior Postdoctoral Position in Biomimetic Systems for cell engineering (Ref. SP-EM)


Application Deadline: 30/11/2015
Ref: SP-EM

The Biomimetic systems for cell engineering group at the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) is looking for a Senior Postdoctoral Researcher to participate in the development of the project “Engineering Complex Intestinal Epithelial Tissue Models” (ERC-Consolidator Grant). The goal of this project is to engineer intestinal epithelial tissue models that mimic physiological characteristics found in in vivo human intestinal tissue, to open up new areas of research on human intestinal diseases. To do this, we propose to develop an experimental setup that combines microfabrication techniques, tissue engineering components and recent advances in intestinal stem cell research, exploiting stem cell self-organizing characteristics. We anticipate this setup to recapitulate the 3D morphology, the spatio-chemical gradients and the dynamic microenvironment of the living tissue. We expect the new device to prove useful in understanding cell physiology, adult stem cell behavior, and organ development as well as in modelling human intestinal diseases.
