Postdoctoral Researcher on Biomechanical Models (PPCC-BIOMOD)

Sarrià Chemical Institute (IQS) and the Sant Joan de Déu Hospital (HSJD) are looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher to work on a project studying how the different biomechanical parameters present in the upper jaw play an active role during the osseointegration of bone implants used in maxillofacial surgery for cleft lip and palate cases. The objectives of the project consist of establishing a correlation between the biomechanical parameters of the maxillofacial scenario and the osseointegration of the implant, as well as optimizing the geometry of the implant in order to promote osseointegration

The contract will be within the framework of the “Development of advanced biomechanical models for planification and improvement of surgical practice applied to cleft lip and palate maxillofacial surgery” (BIOMOD) project prioritized by the IBEC under the “Plan Complementario de Biotecnología aplicada a la Salud” (biotechnology applied to health).

This Plan Complementario is co-financed by the Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación and the Generalitat de Catalunya, with funds from the European Union NextGenerationEU (PRTR-C17.I1)

Deadline: 10 February 2023
