PhD Position (m/f/d) Development of Adopted Manufacturing Methods for Bioabsorbable Metallic EMD

Project Description

This PhD-project will develop the manufacturing routes for medical device concepts, with wire-braiding and high-precision laser-cutting processing used to create micron-scale test specimens (for characterisation) and medical device prototypes.

The objectives of this project are:

1. Process development for production of EMD device structures using both laser-cutting and wire braiding technologies.

2. Production of dog-bone specimens, stent sub-units and early stent prototypes

3. Optimisation of all manufacturing process routes for final prototyping of EMD device concepts.
