The Biomimetics-Innovation-Centre (B-I-C) at the Bremen University of Applied
Sciences invites applications for the following position
Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Salary Scale TV-L 13, full-time, starting as soon as possible
The position is a fixed term position (2 years)
Reference number: FK5-Postdoctoral_Fellow_01/18
The Bremen University of Applied Sciences (HSB) is characterized by the poles
of tradition and innovation. Although its roots extend back more than two
hundred years, our range of faculties is modern and uniquely oriented toward
the future. The HSB is member of UAS7, a strategic alliance of seven leading
German Universities of Applied Sciences committed to excellence in teaching
and research. Since its foundation in 2005, the Biomimetics-Innovation-Centre
(B-I-C) at the HSB has been coordinating research activities in the fields of
fundamental interdisciplinary research and development.
Currently the B-I-C is looking for an outstanding young postdoctoral research
fellow to conduct an interdisciplinary research project at the interface of biology,
biomechanics and materials sciences. Research within the project will focus
on the biomechanical analysis of arthropod exoskeletons and the development
and construction of bio-inspired space probes. The research fellow will
work closely together with Prof. Dr. Dirks (Biological Structures and Biomimetics),
Prof. Dr. Labisch (Biomechanics and Design), and Prof. Dr. Müssig (Biological
PhD (or be close to completion) in either organismal biology, zoology,
biomechanics or materials sciences
profound interdisciplinary experience in morphological experimental
experience in state-of-the-art imaging techniques
experience in simulation (CAD, FEA and n-body) or material analysis
The willingness to gain additional experience in these fields would be an advantage.
The B-I-C is closely collaborating with the international B.Sc. programme "Biomimetics"
at the Hochschule Bremen. The project will thus also allow the
research fellow to gain valuable interdisciplinary teaching experience with a
group of highly motivated students. It is expected that the successful candidate
will show interest and willingness to support the department's teaching
activities (English or German).
