The Laboratoire TIMC-IMAG at the Université Grenoble Alpes (France) and Swansea University (United Kingdom), jointly invite applications for a three-year co-tutelle PhD programme focussing on: “Novel Protein Interface to Improve Biocompatibility of Implantable Medical Devices”. The scientific challenge of this project is to use novel protein-derived biopolymers in biomimetic membranes to address the technological challenge of improving the biocompatibility for biomembranes used for implanted medical devices (UGA-TIMC).
A Postdoctoral Scientist or Research Engineer position of 12 months is proposed at TIMC laboratory located at Grenoble. This position is in the research team SyNaBi, that is part of the laboratory TIMC-IMAG (UMR 5525). SyNaBi is a multidisciplinary research team that takes a bioinspired approach to develop innovative biotechnologies for implanted medical devices and diagnostics.
