Information about the position
Politecnico di Milano is seeking candidates with strong research potential, interested in developing new tools for minimally invasive cancer treatment with laser. The research project focuses on the development of a FEM-based simulation for the optimization of minimally invasive laser procedures for cancer treatment. The model will drive the planning of the clinical procedure, based on the simulation of the temporal evolution of the temperature distribution within the target tissue. Segmentation of the 3D geometry of the patient’s anatomy will be obtained from MR medical images.
It is required experience in FEM for biomechanical applications, and knowledge of Comsol Multiphysics and, preferably, Materialise Mimics.
The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work on a unique interdisciplinary project, in cooperation with medical partners and an active and international research team.
The project will be carried out in the Department of Mechanical Engineering (DMEC) of Politecnico di Milano.
The position is funded by the ERC Starting Grant “Laser Ablation: SElectivity and monitoRing for OPTImal tuMor removal”.
Information about the LASER OPTIMAL project - Laser ablation selectivity and monitoring for optimal tumor removal
Further information on the project is available at the link: http://www.laseroptimal.polimi.it/
The successful candidate is required to have:
Starting Date: 16th March 2021
Duration: 12 months.
The call for applicants will be published the 24th January, and the activities will start in March. The link to the official call is under preparation and will be posted on this website in the coming days.
Meanwhile, potential candidates can express interest and request further information on the position.
Applications shall be written in English and be compiled into a single PDF-file containing:
• CV, including a list of publications if any
• general description of future research interests (1 page)
• contact information of at least two references
Important: the PDF-file should be sent via email to: email@example.com
All interested candidates irrespective of age, gender, disability, religion or ethnic background are encouraged to apply.
The contract duration is 1 year.
The candidate will also benefit from the collaborations with national and international partners already established by the supervisor, who holds prestigious European and national grants.
The researcher will be part of the research unit “Mechanical and Thermal Measurements” at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of Politecnico di Milano (PoliMi). PoliMi provides excellent research conditions, in a quiet environment inside the active Milan region: in the QS ranking by subject PoliMi is the first Italian University in several research areas (Including Mechanical Engineering), among the first 6 European Universities in Europe and among the first 20 all over the world. The postdoctoral researcher will have access to funding for travels, conferences and visitors. Memberships to scientific societies are also fully funded by the Institution.
