Postdoctoral Position: Computational Modelling of Magneto-Active Polymers

Daniel Garcia-Gonzalez's picture


Overall description of the project: 4D-BIOMAP is a multidisciplinary project, recently funded by the European Research Council, that aims at providing cutting-edge solutions to modulate the mechanical properties of cell’s/tissue’s substrate remotely. This mechanical stimulation has an important role on biological structures leading to alterations in functional responses, morphological changes and activation of growth or healing processes. To overcome the current limitations preventing advance in this field, we will develop novel 4D printed structures based on magneto-active polymers. These structures will enable for remote magneto-mechanical stimulation of biological structures and (reversible) evolution of their mechanical surrounding simulating relevant pathological processes. To this end, we will combine experimental, theoretical and computational methodologies to be implemented by a highly multidisciplinary work team.

Role of PostDoc2 in the project: The postdoc will be responsible for conducting the following research activities:

  •         Develop finite element (FE) frameworks to simulate nonlinear magneto-mechanical problems.
  •         Support the implementation of new constitutive models into the FE codes.
  •       Develop FE frameworks to simulate mechano-physiological processes on biological systems.
  •         Help at designing the experimental activities providing computational support.
  •         Help at supervising PhD and MSc students.

The successful candidate will join the newly created Lab for Smart Materials and Mechanobiological Systems, within the Department of Continuum Mechanics and Structural Analysis of Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (Spain). More details in attached file.
