The researcher will be involved in a project to improve the efficiency of new brain cancer (cerebral glioblastoma) therapy by using alternating electric fields of low intensity and intermediate frequency. We are looking for a candidate with expertise in organoids to model brain tumors to evaluate the impact of electric fields on inhibiting the cell viability, proliferation, and invasiveness of primary glioblastoma cells in vitro. The researcher also will be involved in the design, possible functionalization, and biological evaluation (cytocompatibility) of the materials used for the medical device.
