INTERNSHIPS AND GRADUATION PROJECTS

1 - Design and Development of Degradable Bone Implant Materials

Introduction

Phoenix Bone Tech B.V. is a Dutch startup company, active in advanced materials design and manufacturing aiming at treating bone fractures with novel high-tech solutions. Numerous bone fractures are currently treated by using permanent fixtures. Commonly used permanent metal-based biomaterials include stainless steels, titanium and cobalt–chromium alloys. These materials are shown to undergo sever cases of corrosion, generating toxic metal ions in the vicinity of the implants, which ultimately results in implant loosening and tissue loss. Thereby, a considerable number of permanent bone fixtures must be removed by a second surgical procedure after the tissue has healed sufficiently. Phoenix Bone Tech has developed an advanced material that allow for manufacturing degradable bone fixation devices that dissolve in the body after the fractured bone is sufficiently healed therefore, no extra operation needed and no risk of long-term clinical complications.


Job description
We are looking for motivated students interested in the areas of Production Engineering, Materials & Design and R&D Engineering. As an Intern, you'll work independently, and under direct supervision of the Chief Technology Officer. Working on existing as well as innovation projects and gain practical knowledge. We will definitely welcome your own initiative. You will start by performing literature review to get accustomed to the subject and in later stages, you will perform laboratory-scale development and testing of advanced materials. By the end of the internship, you will be an expert in this area and if our mutual cooperation works well, we will be happy to have you work with us long term. We are looking for students interested in the areas of Production Engineering, Material & Design and R&D Engineering.
