8359| Ghent University, Mechanics of Materials and Structures| Postdoctoral vacancy (3 years) on automated software workflow for medical application of 3D printed technologies| 3D printing or Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies carry the promise of revolutionizing the quality and efficiency of healthcare. However, the required technologies, even when available, are currently too fragmented to be integrated into routine, affordable and streamlined solutions that can benefit a large number of patients. The challenge thereby is to deliver 3D printing technologies that enable:Patient-specific solutions: personalized medical devices that are designed using the images acquired for individual patients and best fit their treatment needs;Complexity and miniaturization: complex shapes, articulations and miniaturized geometries of implantable medical devices and instruments have the potential to radically enhance treatment effectiveness and post-treatment recovery;Streamlined care: the ability to integrate diagnosis, design and manufacturing of AM medical devices into a validated software platform is the key to delivering fast, affordable treatments with dramatic life-saving potential.The INTERREG project 3DMed aims to improve affordability and large-scale accessibility of medical treatment using 3D printed devices. This will be achieved by increasing the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of state-of-the-art 3D printing technologies for medical applications and integrating them into a streamlined, fast, cost-effective software platform for use in routine clinical practice. This project contains 17 partners from The Netherlands, Belgium, France and United Kingdom, including universities, hospitals, software suppliers, 3D printing companies, clinical observers, manufacturers of medical devices and implants,... The project is coordinated by TUDelft.In this postdoctoral position, it is the purpose to develop a streamlined, fast, cost-effective software platform to connect the design and production of 3D printed devices with clinical evaluation (pre- and postoperative). This involves data transfer protocols to link image acquisition, design and the manufacture (3D printing) of the device; software collection and evaluation; software development; software interfacing; process automation; protocol collection and validation of the software platform for the selected categories of medical devices. Interfacing various software tools also involves formatting the input and output of each software so that automated interaction with the other software components is possible. Each input and output must be expressed in a terminology that is understandable by both clinicians and engineers and uses a consistent set of variables and measures for defining the medical device under consideration. Setting up this tool chain of different (commercial) software packages and programming the necessary data protocols to achieve an integrated software platform is the goal, and to achieve this goal, a close collaboration will be required with the researchers at TUDelft, clinical observers, AM service providers and software companies.Only candidates with a PhD degree or equivalent experience should apply. The candidate should have strong programming skills (Python, C++, C#,...) and has experience with different software tools for patient-specific design of implants, for example: (i) medical image segmentation software (Mimics, SimpleWare, Amira,...), (ii) FE tools (Abaqus, Ansys, Simcenter,...), (iii) topology optimization (Autodesk Within Medical, Altair/Optistruct, Frustum/Generate,...). He/she will closely work together with the other postdoc in the team (see other vacancy) and is willing to travel frequently to meet and discuss with the other project partners in the neighbouring countries.More information can be found on:http://www.composites.ugent.be/PhD_job_vacancies_PhD_job_positions_composites.html

8360| Ghent University, Mechanics of Materials and Structures| Postdoctoral vacancy (2 years) on high-frequency vibration techniques for non-destructive inspection of 3D printed metal parts| The use of 3D printed metal structures is taking a very fast ramp-up in industry. General Electric has demonstrated the possibility of printing titanium fuel injectors for their LEAP engine, EADS has printed a nacelle hinge bracket for the Airbus A320, Boeing is printing plastic inlet ducts for high-altitude aircrafts, hip implants and other prosthetics are exploiting the design freedom of additive manufacturing (AM),..Additive manufacturing of titanium alloys yields great potential for the aerospace industry (and others) as it allows the generation of geometrically complex structures with high specific strength, low density and high corrosion resistance. However the inspection of such 3D printed components is almost impossible with traditional Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) techniques because of the typical complex geometries and internal cavities. A very interesting alternative is PCRT (Process Compensated Resonance Testing), a high-frequency vibration technique that tries to detect defects by evaluating relative shifts in the resonance spectrum.In this postdoctoral position, it is the purpose to devise and build an upgraded PCRT set-up for inspecting 3D printed metal parts with complex geometry, to implement data-acquisition and to develop advanced post-processing tools for identification of small defects in the frequency domain. You will closely collaborate with another postdoctoral research in our group, as well as with several large industries (Materialise, Siemens and Vibrant). This postdoctoral position is partially funded by SIM-Flanders (Strategic Initiative Materials in Flanders).Only candidates with a PhD degree or equivalent experience should apply. The candidate should have a strong experimental background in vibration techniques and data analysis in frequency domain.

8368| John Innes Centre, Molecular Microbiology| Postdoctoral Researcher| Postdoctoral ResearcherApplications are invited for a Postdoctoral Researcher to join the Laboratory of Professor Barrie Wilkinson at the John Innes Centre based in Norwich, UK.Background:Natural products have formed the basis for the development of almost half of all pharmaceuticals and over 80% of all antibiotics in clinical use today. A common barrier to the development of natural products as therapeutic agents arises from the fact that the compounds nature provides do not necessarily possess the level of activity or properties required of a product molecule, and further synthetic transformations are often necessary to generate the final optimised compound for medical applications. In this project, we aim to combine new synthetic biology technologies and state-of-the art advancements in natural products bioengineering, directed evolution and biocatalysis to develop a single fermentation-based process that can deliver ‘non-natural’ products, obviating the need for any additional synthetic transformations. This ‘total biosynthesis’ technology can be applied to develop more cost effective, environmentally friendly and efficient single-step manufacture of a range of medically important antibiotics that would typically be produced by arduous multistep synthetic processes.The role:The position is part of a large £3.2 million project funded by BBSRC/Innovate UK and situated in the laboratory of Professor Barrie Wilkinson at JIC in collaboration with GlaxoSmithKline and the Manchester Institute for Biotechnology. The project aims to engineer new enzymes and biosynthetic pathways required for production of medically important antibiotics in Streptomyces host strains. The project will involve the development of new approaches for engineering non-ribosomal peptide synthetase (NRPS) enzymes to create new assembly lines that can generate novel peptides. The new suite of enzymes will be introduced into an industrially optimised Streptomyces super-host strain to create new biosynthetic pathways that can deliver antibiotics which are urgently required to combat emerging antimicrobial resistance.The ideal candidate:The successful applicant will join a large interdisciplinary team of biologists and chemists and must hold a PhD or have equivalent postdoctoral experience in NRPS assembly line engineering. The ideal candidate will have knowledge of molecular microbiology and molecular genetics as well as manipulating biosynthetic gene clusters, gene knockouts and heterologous expression, particularly in Streptomyces and relevant bacterial strains. They should also have skills in microbial fermentation and bacterial cultivation. Additional information:Salary on appointment will be within the range £31,250 to £31,800 per annum depending on qualifications and experience.
