​Ph.D. vacancies : All positions filled!
Introducing our 15 early-stage researchers

 

​All the full-time positions for early-stage researchers (ESRs) offered by the European Training Network "STIMULUS" could be filled and almost all of the students were finally able to join their research group in one of the member countries of the Consortium.

We would like to celebrate the end of the recruiting phase introducing our Ph.D. students,

to whom we wish all the best for their research success.

Research and tasks

Your research will provide technological solutions to the growing problem of healthcare-associated infections. Increasing antibiotic resistance means that current medical approaches rapidly become unsustainable. STIMULUS will create medical devices that signal when an infection is present and thereby reduce the unnecessary prescription of antibiotics. Potent novel and existing antibiotics will be released by built-in triggers in wound dressings to treat infections exactly when and where it is needed. Taking these technologies from fundamental research to prototypes with our industrial partners will be the crowning achievement of your training.
