Postdoc: Needle-Free Injections Ultrafast Microjets for Minimal Skin Damage

The Faculty of Science and Technology, University of Twente, currently has an opening for postdoctoral positions on Needle-Free Injections and ultrafast microjets for Minimal Skin Damage.

Injecting without needles is challenging because all skins are different. The study of fast-traveling tiny droplets impacting on soft substrates will give you and our highly motivated team the knowledge to inject without harming the skin. It will also enable the determination of skin properties for vaccinations, cosmetics, and other uses, where needles are feared.

This project will use state-of-the-art technology developed in the BuBble Gun Project ( Together with collaborating experts from medical centers, commercial partners and spin-off companies, this project will contribute to developing a novel technology to provide personalized and effective medical and cosmetic treatments.
