We offer four Doctoral student positions in Neural Tissue Engineering

WHERE?

We are a Research Consortium formed by 4 Institutions, the Center for Biomedical Technology of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, the Neuro-computing & Neuro-robotics Research Group of the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, the Institute for Health Research of the Hospital San Carlos Madrid and Silk Biomed SL, a spin off company of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid.

The Center for Biomedical Technology (CTB, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid) is a research and technology center of the Technical University of Madrid that brings together researchers from different disciplines on biomedical technologies, in collaboration with other external institutions, in order to address major challenges that scientists are facing today in Biomedicine and Health and whose success requires a stable and interdisciplinary collaboration, including both basic and translational research; facilitate the development of biomedical technology to be handed over to industry; create an environment conducive to the training of new researchers and professionals in this field.

The Health Research Institute of the Hospital Clínico San Carlos in Madrid (IdISSC) is an organization dedicated to the promotion of research, to provide methodological support for conducting research projects and clinical trials, to manage people and their knowledge, to ensure the use of infrastructure dedicated to research, to manage the resulting economic resources for the research development, and to be the translating platform for research results into clinical practice. Inside IdISSC, the Neural Plasticity Research Group is devoted to the development of sensory neuroprostheses and the perception of artificial sensory input by the nervous system, the reconstruction of the nervous system using biomaterials, as well as in the therapeutic effects of electrical and magnetic neurostimulation.

The Neuro-computing & Neuro-robotics Research Group of the Universidad Complutense de Madrid has a long experience in RTD projects. Of particular interest are brain-machine interfaces, brain plasticity and neural oscillations and their role in information processing and coding. We possesses scientific experience in the fields of electrophysiology, histology, data analysis, identification and analysis of stochastic variables involved in the cooperation between complex biological systems, non-linear dynamics, modeling and simulations.

DESCRIPTION OF THE POSITION

ARTIFICIAL RETINA: We are looking for  Post Doc candidates to work in the development of an Artificial Retina, field of Neural Tissue Engineering, Soft Nano-biomaterials and/or Electrophysiology. Our research is and aims to develop and commercialize novel hybrid nano-biomaterials for in situ neuroprotection and regeneration of the retina in patients with traumatic or degenerative diseases (i.e. AMD, Age-related Macular Degeneration).

 

QUALIFICATIONS

We seek candidates with a strong motivation for scientific research, keen interest in translating scientific findings to practical applications, in the field of experimental neuroscience, stem cells, brain plasticity, neuroprotection and neural repair.

Ideal candidates should fulfill the following criteria:

  • Hold a MSc degree in Biology, Molecular Biology, Neuroscience, Biotechnology, Biomedical Engineering, Biomaterials or a closely related discipline
  • Hold a PhD in a field close to the above disciplines
  • Possess verified knowledge and skills relevant to their PhD studies
  • Have a very good academic record, i.e. Q1 papers as mainly contributing authors
  • Be able to work across different disciplines like Biomaterials, Neuroscience, Electrophysiology, Molecular Biology, Immunology, etc.
  • Be able to formulate and solve scientific questions and to communicate the main research results to both, professional end users
  • Have good planning skills
  • Be enthusiastic team players but be also able to work alone
  • Be fluent in English, both spoken and written
  • Have good scientific writing skills
  • Previous lab training is recommended but not necessary
  • Additional experience relevant to their postgraduate studies (such as professional experience) is welcome but not necessary

 

APPLICATION PROCEDURE
