REGENERATIVE MEDICINE CROSSING BORDERS

Vacancies

Postdoc Computational modeling of kidney toxin transport

kidneysThe department of Cell Biology-Inspired Tissue Engineering (cBITE) at the MERLN Institute for Technology-inspired Regenerative Medicine at Maastricht University in the Netherlands invites applications for a post-doctoral position. The post-doctoral researcher will perform cutting-edge research in computational modeling methods applied to regenerative medicine and more specifically, to kidney toxin transport in microfluidic set-ups, organoid culture systems, and/or bioartificial kidney devices.

This project is part of the RegMed XB's Kidney Moonshot, which aims to create a functional subunit of a bioengineered kidney, as an intermediate step towards a fully bioengineered kidney. It will be coordinated by the MERLN Institute for Technology-Inspired Regenerative Medicine at Maastricht University (UM), while closely collaborating with TU Eindhoven, Utrecht UniversityLeiden University, and other RegMed XB partners.

Project description:

  • Computational modeling of toxin transport, computational fluid dynamics, to inform the design of in vitro kidney organoid experiments and/or bioartificial kidney devices
  • Parameter optimization and sensitivity analysis
  • Analysis and integration of various in vitro/in vivo data for model calibration
