The searcher will develop and test functional polysaccharide hydrogels and “bioinks” to advance bioprinting technologies for future manufacturing of tissues and organs. The applicant will perform a variety of tasks including chemical modification of polysaccharides, production of hydrogel formulations, hydrogel mechanical testing, implementation of hydrogel biomaterials to create 3D tissue constructs through bioprinting, biological and functional tests for verification of tissue construct viability and function. The postdoctoral fellow will be provided with a variety of procedures and techniques previously outlined by established protocols and other scientific data related to the production and characterizations of polysaccharide hydrogels.
-Chemical modification of polysaccharides,
-Mechanical characterization of hydrogels,
-Cell culture and expansion,
-Assembly of 3D constructs using biofabrication and bioprinting techniques
-Collection and organization of data, preparation of reports and manuscripts
The ideal candidate will have:
-a PhD in polymer chemistry & physical-chemistry;
-an experience in the design and characterization of polymeric biomaterials;
-ability to work independently and collaboratively in a highly interdisciplinary group;
-ability to properly report, organize and publish research data.
-facility with meeting people, collaboration, and good verbal communications skills
The research work will be mainly conducted in CERMAV-CNRS in the team “Structure and Modification of Polysaccharides”. The applicant will also work with the team "Functional Neuroimaging and Brain Perfusion" of GIN in Grenoble as well as with several experts in biofabrication and bioprinting technologies.
