The strategic plan of the Institute is aimed at expanding the research activities into the area of Materials for Health Care with the support of the Maria de Maeztu program. To this end, IMDEA Materials has opened a new position of either Researcher (tenure-track) or Senior Researcher (tenured) in the following area:
Biomechanics of biological tissues, including characterization, modelling and simulation of the mechanical behavior of healthy and pathological biological tissues and their interaction with implants, prothesis and orthosis. He/she is expected to interact with the strong program in multiscale materials modelling in the Institute to expand its activities into the area of biological materials.
Candidates should hold a doctoral degree in Materials Science (or related discipline) and demonstrate the ability to carry out independent research which combines high quality scientific research with technology transfer to industry, particularly for senior appointments. Leadership to develop an independent group within the institute’s framework of research activities and good communication skills are required.
