PhD position in the field of micro- and nano- computed tomography in the field of orthopedic translational research

Non-healing meniscal lesions are often debilitating and predispose to osteoarthritis and given their high incidence worldwide, the need to improve their treatment is of paramount importance. Since blood supply is critical to the self-healing potential of the meniscus, advanced studies on 3D microvasculature could lay a new foundation for a basic, translational and clinical evaluation.The main objective of this project is to create a new anatomical 3D atlas of meniscus microvasculature in healthy and pathological conditions using X-ray tomography techniques.
We are looking for a highly motivated person ready to start her/his research career and add value to this highly interdisciplinary project with her/his own expertise. The ideal candidate should have a background in image analysis and/or processing in biomedical or material science field. Experience in microscopy, histology or biomechanics in orthopedic field would be an advantage as well as x-ray micro-CT previous experience. Very good knowledge of English (oral and written) is mandatory, knowledge of German would be an advantage. The work will be carried out at Empa Dübendorf, near Zurich, within a collaborative international project (Switzerland and Italy) and should eventually lead to a PhD degree from University of Fribourg (CH). The position is immediately available or upon mutual agreement.
