Phys2BioMed (Biomechanics in health and disease): 15 positions 654 views

Phys2BioMed opens 15 positions of Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) for three year research projects at the premises of 11 European partners. The positions are available in project “Biomechanics in health and disease: advanced physical tools for innovative early diagnosis”

About the project:
  • The network “Biomechanics in health and disease: advanced physical tools for innovative early diagnosis” (Phys2BioMed) will involve sixteen partners (eleven beneficiaries, hiring young researchers, and five partner organisations, supporting training and research), merging diverse competences at European level, from different fields like nanoscience and nanotechnology, physics, biology, and medicine.


  • Applicant must be excellent and highly motivated candidates with a master degree in Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Bioengineering, Medicine or related subjects, and strong interest and experience in cellular biology, biophysics, bioengineering, biomedicine, physiology, and related disciplines, including advanced microscopy, statistics and computer science.
  • Candidates are expected to have dedication and enthusiasm for experimental research, combined with openness and curiosity, and the ability and willingness to team working in an interdisciplinary environment.
  • Candidates can be of any nationality but need to demonstrate transnational mobility
  • Candidates must be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers, and have not been awarded a doctoral degree.
  • Good proficiency in written and spoken English is required (at least level B2).
