JOBS
 

Research Fellow – Bio-Ink development

University of Queensland, Brisbane

  • Research Academic level A

  • Fixed-term position for up to 12 months

An exciting opportunity within the School of Chemical Engineering exists for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow, who will focus their efforts on performing research that addresses roadblocks in effecting 3D Bioprinting of fit-for-purpose and patient specific engineered tissues.

 

The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will be responsible for

a.) the design, synthesis, functionalisation and chemical and physical characterisation of polymeric biomaterial precursors and hydrogels;

b.) the characterisation of these polymeric systems (without and with live cells) under flow conditions mimicking those experienced during extrusion bioprinting;

c.) the optimisation of Bio-Ink formulations for robust, reproducible bioprinting outcomes.

Application deadline: 16th November

DEGREE POSTINGS​

PhD Scholarship in Biomaterials Science – Polycaprolactone Studies 

Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia 

 

Project overview: The Regenerative Medicine group in the Centre for Transformative Biomimetics and Bioengineering at Queensland University of Technology is seeking a PhD candidate to undertake cutting edge research in the field of biomaterials characterisation. This research group is at the forefront of biomedicine, medical devices and tissue engineering. The project, led by Prof Dietmar Hutmacher, aims to provide insights into the fundamental properties of polycaprolactone (PCL), one of the world’s highest profile polyester biomaterials. Although it is a well-studied polymer, there remains much to elucidate in regard to its intrinsic behaviour, which will be the focus of the project.

 

The scholarship will allow the successful applicant to work in an advanced and well-supported research environment with state-of-the-art laboratories and opportunities to collaborate with other leading scientists, both internal and external to QUT.

 

Criteria: The successful candidate will possess a strong chemistry background, with minimum of Bachelor degree (Science or Chemical Engineering) with Honours or Masters, including a significant research component. Specific skills required include organic synthesis (monomer/polymer), materials characterisation (NMR, FT-IR, DSC etc), and a solid understanding of physical chemistry, in particular, molecular thermodynamics. Experience in the area of polymer chemistry is highly desired. 

 

Scholarship Rate: AUD$28,597 pa, full-time for 3 years with a possible 6 month extension 

 

For further information, or to register your interest, please contact Prof Dietmar Hutmacher: d.hutmacher@qut.edu.au

Advertised October 2021 and will remain open until the position is filled.

PhD Scholarship in Biomaterials Science – Hydrogel Hydration

Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia

 

Project Overview: The Regenerative Medicine group in the Centre for Transformative Biomimetics and Bioengineering at Queensland University of Technology is seeking a PhD candidate to undertake cutting edge research in the field of biomaterials characterisation. This research group is at the forefront of biomedicine, medical devices and tissue engineering. The project, led by Prof Dietmar Hutmacher, aims to study the role of hydration water in the functional behaviour of various biomedical hydrogels, as well as to probe the different states of water within the hydrogel network at the molecular level. Understanding these phenomena is fundamental to the successful application of hydrogel materials in medicine.

The scholarship will allow the successful applicant to work in an advanced and well-supported research environment with state-of-the-art laboratories and opportunities to collaborate with other leading scientists, both internal and external to QUT.

Criteria: The successful candidate will possess a strong background in a chemical or materials science discipline, with minimum of Bachelor degree (Science or Chemical Engineering) with Honours or Masters, including a significant research component. Specific skills required include materials characterisation techniques (especially NMR spectroscopy). Experience in the area of polymer chemistry is highly desired.

Scholarship Rate: AUD$28,597 pa, full-time for 3 years with a possible 6 month extension

For further information, or to register your interest, please contact Prof Dietmar Hutmacher: d.hutmacher@qut.edu.au

 

Advertised October 2021 and will remain open until the position is filled.
