A PhD funded by the MSC European training network ERICA (GA n° 764691) is available at Technische Universitaet Wien, Austria (Website:

The purpose of the PhD (Project 12) is the Multiscale design of engineered C-S-H in dentistry. This project has the objective to engineer patient-specific mineral trioxide aggregates (= low-volume, high-value C-S-H-based products) for endodontic applications in dentistry. The targets of engineering are to provide the required in-situ sealing and optimal mechanical biocompatibility in terms of stiffness and strength, as compared to the surrounding tooth material. Success will be demonstrated by in vitro experiments.
