Research Group Leader (f/m/d) Cardiovascular Tissue Engineering
Universitätsklinikum der RWTH Aachen
The NRW focus professorship Biohybrid & Medical Textiles at the Institute of Applied Medical
Engineering (Prof. Dr. med. Stefan Jockenhövel) invites applications for a full-time (100 %, 38.5
hours per week) position as
Research Group Leader (f/m/d)
Cardiovascular Tissue Engineering
The NRW focus professorship Biohybrid & Medical Textiles (BioTex) focuses on the development of
biohybrid implants, which are produced from patient's own cells. Biohybrid implant research has
developed rapidly in recent years and has led to promising new therapeutic approaches.
Biohybrid implants consist of a technical and a patient's own cellular component. For this reason, our
working group is very interdisciplinary and includes scientists from the fields of materials research,
natural sciences, engineering and medicine. A high international orientation is also our strength.
In cooperation with the DWI Leibniz Institute for Interactive Materials and the Aachen-Maastricht-
Institute for Biobased Materials (RWTH & University of Maastricht) and the Institute for Textile
Technology, we have set ourselves the goal of advancing research along the value chain from
biomaterial development and processing to implant development and clinical application.
We are looking for a research group leader for the Cardiovascular Tissue Engineering pillar. The
research group leader leads an interdisciplinary and international team of scientists, participates in the
strategic and content-related further development of the research area and represents the research
group as well as the main professorship within and outside the university. The medium-term goal of
our application-oriented basic research is translation into clinical application. The tasks of the research
group management also include the acquisition and scientific management of research projects, the
publication of work results in specialist journals and at conferences as well as participation in relevant
networks and committees.
An university degree in medicine, biology, biotechnology, biomedical engineering or mechanical
engineering (MD, MD/PhD and PhD) is required.
We are looking for a highly motivated scientist with a very good PhD and at least 2 years PostDoc
experience, as well as independent research achievements presented in internationally visible
Experience in the management of research projects and the acquisition of third-party funding is also
