Description

<p><a href="https://materials.imdea.org/">IMDEA Materials Institute</a> is looking for post-doctoral researchers willing to apply for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Postdoctoral Fellowships (PF) in call 2022. IMDEA Materials Institute has a long track record of hosting MSCA fellows and has obtained excellent success rates in recent calls of MSCA PF.</p>

<p>Interested candidates (if successful) will work under the supervision of Dr. Jennifer Patterson, head of the Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine group at IMDEA Materials Institute. The candidate will work in <b>materials development for</b> <b>tissue engineering and regenerative medicine</b>. Candidates with specific interest and experience in hydrogel chemistry, biofabrication/bioprinting, biological characterization of 3D tissue constructs or organoids/spheroids, and/or organ-on-chip devices are particularly encouraged to make contact. The aim is to develop a proposal that merges the interests and experience of the candidate with the goals and expertise of the research group. The Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine group bridges research on fundamental materials chemistry through processing to <i>in vitro</i> and <i>in vivo</i> testing of novel approachs to regenerate damaged or diseased tissues for a variety of biological applications. IMDEA Materials Institute has new facilities to perform cell culture (including a new confocal microscope) as well as extensive facilities for materials synthesis and characterization (including thermal and mechanical testing, SEM, TEM, etc.). In 2022, the Institute is acquiring additional new equipment relevant to this type of research (rheometer, DLS, ICP-OES, microCT, SAXS/WAXS, etc.).</p>

<p><b>HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST:</b></p>

<p>Interested candidates, please send your resume and a brief outline of the proposed research project (2 pages maximum) via email to Dr. Jennifer Patterson (<a href="mailto:jennifer.patterson@imdea.org">jennifer.patterson@imdea.org</a&gt;) <b>before July 15<sup>th</sup> 2022</b>.</p>

<p><b>DESCRIPTION OF THE MSCA POST-DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS:</b></p>

<p>The purpose of the MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships (MSCA PF) is to enhance the creative and innovative potential of researchers holding a PhD, wishing to acquire new skills through advanced training and international, interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral mobility. This is achieved by <b>implementing a research project </b>at a host institution. The fellowship <b>typically covers the researcher&#39;s salary for two years, research costs</b> and overheads for the host institution.</p>

<p>The mobility rule of MSCA PF requires that <b>the researcher </b>(candidate)<b> has not resided or carried out their main activity</b> (work, studies, etc.) <b>in the country of their host organization</b> (Spain, in the case of IMDEA Materials Institute) <b>for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the call deadline</b> (expected to be September 14<sup>th</sup> 2022 for call 2022). Moreover, only candidates with <b>research experience up to 8 years postdoc</b> from the date the PhD degree was granted are eligible (with possible exceptions).</p>
