PhD in Biofluids Mechanics & Respiratory Flows

28 Dec 2024

NOTE: this position listing has expired and may no longer be relevant!

Position Description

The Technion Biofluids Laboratory focuses on research pertaining to pulmonary respiratory flows and physiology, in relation to (nano)cytotoxicity and the inhalation of aerosols, including therapeutics. The work is part of a new ERC Starting Grant funded by the European Union (Horizon 2020) that will address the development of in vitro models of respiratory airways for therapeutic targeting in infant/children lungs.

Emphasis during the PhD will be placed on developing models of infant lungs and utilizing flow visualization and particle velocimetry techniques to investigate pediatric airflows and particle transport phenomena. Candidates with prior experience in the areas of fluid dynamics, experimental fluid mechanics, flow measurement techniques, particle velocimetry, microfluidics, and similar are highly encouraged to apply.

The successful candidate is anticipated to work with an interdisciplinary and international team, and is expected to have good communication skills. Starting dates are flexible throughout 2016.

How to Apply

Applicants should have a MSc or equivalent in physical or engineering disciplines (e.g. mechanical, biomedical, chemical, environmental, etc.), with solid background in fluid dynamics, transport phenomena and related flow topics. Interested candidates should send a cover letter highlighting their experience relevant to this position, current curriculum vitae (CV) and the contact information of at least two (preferably three) referees to: Prof. Dr. Josué Sznitman Department of Biomedical Engineering Technion – Israel Institute of Technology

Position Category: Engineering. Position Type: PhD Project.
