Studierende finden an der ETH Zürich ein Umfeld, das eigenständiges Denken fördert, Forschende ein Klima, das zu Spitzenleistungen inspiriert.
We welcome applications to complete a doctoral training in Advanced Engineering with Living Materials (ALIVE) as part of the hosted by the ETH Zurich Competence Center for . The focus is on Biohybrid Muscles and Bioreactors for muscle tensioning.
The Initiative of ETH Zurich aims to elucidate and apply the design principles of living systems as a basis for sustainable, intelligent, and resilient materials and technologies of the future. Our approach encompasses studying natural systems and developing biohybrid or biomimetic synthetic systems bridging across scales, from the nano to the macro and structural scale. ALIVE is organized into three interrelated project streams:
Two participating professors from ETH Zurich act as co-advisors. Accordingly, doctoral students are expected to take advantage of both research groups' opportunities and actively seek cross-group collaborations. The MaP Doctoral School offers a wide range of activities like symposia, workshops, and lecture series, as well as the possibility for doctoral students to organize such formats. ETH ALIVE Doctoral Fellowships are an exciting opportunity, and admission is highly competitive. The fellows will be employed according to the regulations of ETH Zurich. The corresponding guidelines for doctoral education apply. Upon completing the doctorate, the fellows are awarded the title "Doctor of Sciences (Dr. sc. ETH Zurich)".
You will become an integral part of the . Furthermore, you would be physically based in the Soft Robotics Laboratory (D-MAVT). Your adviser will be Prof. Robert Katzschmann (D-MAVT) and your co-adviser will be Prof. Jess Snedecker (D-HEST). Close collaborators on this PhD project (all within the ALIVE consortium) are Simone Schürle, Mustafa Khammash, and Edoardo Mazza.
The thesis work would focus on:
You would, during the thesis, also get involved in the engineering of real neural networks since the engineered muscles would provide a resource to test genetically engineered neuron cells.
The output of the Ph.D. thesis is going to be highly relevant as a model system for microrobots to move within the constructs and to use the constructs for test grounds to do cell signaling and cell intervention.
