Application deadline 15 March 2018
One postdoc position within the field of biomechanical modeling/biomedical engineering for the cardiovascular system is available at Department of Structural Engineering at NTNU, Trondheim, Norway. The position will be organized under the cardiovascular modeling project headed by professor Leif Rune Hellevik in the Biomechanics group.
The candidate will contribute to the further development of ongoing projects within the group such as Model based, noninvasive diagnosis of coronary artery disease with 3D ultrasound and CT, Uncertainty quantification and sensitivity analysis for cardiovascular simulations, NTNU Human Physiome, but also follow up and contribute to new projects applying modeling and engineering approaches to personalize cardiovascular simulations (i.e. combining wearables and models), and in particular to strengthen the collaboration with the Cardiac Exercise Research Group, and TrollLABS at NTNU as well as St. Olavs University Hospital in Trondheim.
The successful candidate is a highly motivated and ambitious researcher with excellent grades and relevant experience in some of the following areas: biomechanics, biomedical engineering, numerical mathematics, uncertainty quantification, sensitivity analysis, machine learning and programming. The candidate must be diligent and display the ability to work independently and is expected to carry out high-quality research and to publish the results in international journals. Additionally, documented grant writing skills are desirable. As the appointee will be involved in teaching courses at the department, experience in teaching will also be advantageous
