  • Opening for a Group Leader in Tissue Engineering - Spain

    Group Leader in Tissue Engineering: Cell Harvesting, Bioabsorbable
    Scaffolds, Tissue Implants

    A position for group leader is offered by a new Bioengineering Research
    Centre located in Zaragoza (Spain). Candidates should have 5-10 years of
    relevant international experience working either with different tissues
    or biological materials in engineering applications or in cellular
    therapy techniques for the treatment of different musculoskeletal
    diseases. Experience in one or more of the following areas will be
    beneficial: bone/cartilage tissue engineering applications, novel
    preparations for cell proliferation and cell harvesting,
    mechano-biological characterization of novel biomaterials in
    bone/cartilage scaffoldings, development of drug and cell
    release-systems to induce tissue regeneration, animal models for tissue
    regeneration using implanted biomaterials, computational models focused
    on the interaction between tissues and biomaterials.

    It is expected that the candidate will have a significant expertise in
    in-vitro and in-vivo experiments, and in clinical treatments. He/she
    should be able of developing an intense multidisciplinary cooperation
    with other research groups with expertise in biomaterials and modelling
    of living tissues.

    Successful candidates must have:
    - An outstanding record in tissue engineering research, both in
    laboratory work and in international publications, together with an
    established capability of attracting grant support.
    - Experience, enthusiasm and creativity in order to develop an
    outstanding research presence in the University environment, as well as
    excellent communication skills.
    - Proven vision, leadership and management skills related to
    interdisciplinary project work and team building.

    Work arrangements will imply a number of benefits, including very
    favourable living conditions in a really vibrant city, culturally and
    recreationally. Offices and laboratories will be located in a new
    technological campus, on a brand new, state-of-the-art research
    facility. Salary and conditions are negotiable depending on the specific
    experience and value of the candidate.
