Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for a fully funded (fees and stipend), full-time PhD position at the University College Dublin, Dublin, Ireland. University College Dublin is ranked within the top 1 % of higher education institutions world-wide. The project aims to develop advanced therapy medicinal products for wound healing purposes. The three-dimensional constructs will be developed using state-of-the-art biofabrication technologies (e.g. bioprinting, electrospinning) and an appropriate cell population (e.g. permanently differentiated, stem cells). The produced tissue engineered medicines will be characterised using an array of biochemical, biophysical, biomechanical and biological methods. Preclinical analysis of the produced tissue-like moduli will also be conducted.
The project is funded from Science Foundation Ireland, Frontiers for the Future Programme
Applicants should submit a cover letter outlining their suitability to the post, a detailed CV, transcripts and the contact details of three referees.
