General Information


The keys to success

What we are looking for: A highly skilled person who is motivated to work
in a startup committed to deliver computational models in biotech. The models will be integrated in an existing software framework to
generate virtual twins of the bio-engineered multi-cellular systems at cellular resolution. Besides model construction and development, the work includes the opportunity to work on specific clients’ solutions as well as to contribute to scientific research papers.

We appreciate candidatures of persons who are ready to listen to clients, analyse their specific needs, can transform their problem into a model (digital twin) and be able to run simulations getting the maximum of information out of it. An advantage will be if the candicate has experience with (living) tissue simulations or flow simulations (CFD).
