Beschreibung: Many biological materials, such as bone or wood, react to mechanical stress on a structural or material level. More material is added or existing material is modified.

How does insect cuticle, one of the most common biological composite materials in the world, react to mechanical load? Are insects able to adjust their exoskeleton according to the stress they experience?

To answer this fundamental biomechanical question your PhD project will investigate the effect of long-term increased mechanical load on the biomechanical properties of exoskeletons using a custom-built experimental setup, state of the art 3D imaging techniques and comprehensive biomechanical tests.

We are looking for a PhD candidate with
- a Masters degree in organismal biology, biomechanics, materials sciences or related engineering fields
- excellent academic results and the interest to pursue an academic career
- ideally experience in experimental design, microscopy, 3D data analysis and materials testing
- good communication skills
- the willingness to work as part of an interdisciplinary team

We offer a three-year TVöD 13 65% PhD position at one of the leading Universities of Applied Sciences in Germany, starting in early 2019. The PhD project is in close collaboration with researchers from the University of Bremen MAPEX cluster.
