OFFER DESCRIPTION

The Centre of Excellence for advanced materials application (CEMEA) of the Slovak Academy of Sciences (SAS) tightly collaborating with Institute of Materials and Machine Mechanics of SAS and Biomedical Research Center of SAS offers a 2 years PostDoc position in dynamic interdisciplinary environment, which combines the material science and biological evaluation. Research activities include:

- processing of (partially) biodegradable metal or metal-metal composites (Ti, Mg, Zn, etc.) for an application of biomedical device (implant, stent, etc.)

- microstructural characterization

- mechanical and fatigue testing- corrosion behavior

- in-vitro biological evaluation

We are looking for an excellent, motivated and experienced researcher with a strong background in material science area related to light metals, alloys and metal matrix composites, electron microscopy and analyses (SEM, TEM, EDS, EBSD, XRD), mechanical, fatigue and corrosion testing, and in-vitro biological evaluation (cyto- and geno-toxicity, oxidative stress). Previous practice in powder metallurgy will be considered a strong advantage. The main aim of a PostDoc candidate is to address existing challenges by developing of a unique (partially) degradable biomedical metallic material by powder metallurgy approach. This will require a good understanding of the relationship between the materials microstructure, biomedical device design and performance. Other duties involve coordination of analyses, exploitation and synthesis of results, organization of follow-up meetings, oral presentations, writing of reports and scientific articles. The postdoc will closely collaborate with other team members.
