Working at Biomedical Engineering
Our employees educate Bachelor and Master students in (bio)medical engineering and participate in leading national and international research programmes. Does your heart lie in science and technology? And do you want to contribute to the improving the quality of life? Then, fulfill your ambition, take a look at our vacancies and choose one of our challenges.
Highlight | We are looking for vision & ambition!
The Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) of the TU/e is expanding with a focus on translational BME research and is therefore looking for multiple, ambitious scientists.
We offer 5 full-time (tenure-track) positions for candidates on Assistant Professor and/or Associate Professor level, who would like to take on the challenge of setting up their own research line in the fields of:
Health & Data
In most medical and biomedical experiments large amounts of data are produced. In this position you will focus on developing and applying computational techniques to analyze and interpreted this data in the (bio) medical context. The preferred research background should be in the combination of computational methods and biomedical engineering.
Questions related to this position can be directed to: prof.dr. P.A.J. Hilbers

Research in cardiovascular regenerative medicine is becoming more inspired by mechanically driven tissue and organ morphogenesis. In this position, you will focus on the mechanical factors that drive tissue and organ development, with special emphasis on in-vitro organogenesis. The ideal candidate should have a background in biomedical or mechanical engineering with a strong track record in cardiovascular regeneration.

In this position you are expected to push the frontiers of biosensing with a bottom-up biophysical approach. The preferred research background should be in (a) the design of molecules and molecular structures and (b) studies of their functional properties with single-molecule resolution. The focus of this position is to develop novel concepts for recognition and transduction for real-time monitoring of molecules and molecular processes in complex macromolecular environments.

Computational Cardiovascular Biomechanics
Clinical decision support for cardiovascular diseases increasingly relies on patient specific computational models that predict outcome of clinical intervention. To advance our current research, this position will focus on the development, verification, clinical implementation, and final validation of these models in cooperation with our clinical partners. Candidates with experience in hemodynamics, computational fluid dynamics, fluid structure interaction, patient specific modelling, image based modelling, uncertainty quantification, are kindly invited to apply.

Special Recruitment Event
On October 12 & 13, 2017, the Department of Biomedical Engineering will open its doors by hosting a Special Recruitment Event. The goal of this event is to give suitable candidates a platform to present their research statement, and in addition, to provide the opportunity to learn more about our department, the TU/e, and our future plans and challenges.
You will be offered a tailor-made introductory program containing meetings with the department board, staff members, lab visits and a campus visit etc.
