We invite applications for a Senior Scientist (PostDoc) (m/f). The position is full time, fixed term 5 years. We expect to start with the HZG outstation at MOIN CC in Kiel in April 2018. The place of employment is Kiel, Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht outstation at Molecular Imaging North Competence Center (MOIN CC).


The Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (HZG) is developing biodegradable Mg-based implant materials for various applications. The focus is on musculoskeletal indications; cardiovascular and other tissue applications are approached as well. The research centre covers the full value chain from material development, characterisation, processing (cast and powder metallurgical routes) and prototype production towards degradation under physiological conditions and in vitro cell culture assessment. This will be complemented by in vivo studies performed in the frame of the newly installed HZG outstation in Kiel and the multimodal imaging capacities of the Molecular Imaging North Competence Center MOIN CC (http://www.moincc.de). more
