PhD position in the area of long-term stable neural implants
German Federal pay scale E 13 TV-L / full-time position for 36 months
IMSAS - www.imsas.uni-bremen.de - is an Institute of the University of Bremen which conducts
research in microtechnology.
The employment is fixed-term and governed by the Act of Academic Fixed-Term Contract,

The aim of this project is to develop - by analysis of the degradation and through specifically
devised technological experiments - a combination of layers, which will be stable in the brain’s
fluid over many years.
