PhD position: Image-guided Computational Cardiac Mechanics
The research projectaims at developing image-guided and experimentally validated computational models of cell aggregate-level structural and tissue-level mechanical changes in pathologic growth and remodelling of the heart. To this end, a growth and remodelling law will be formulated and implemented, which will be calibrated and validated using longitudinal in-vivo Magnetic Resonance imaging and experimental data of cardiac microstructure, tissue and function in models of chronic myocardial infarction and left ventricular volume overload.
The research will be conducted both in Zurich and Paris.
The candidate holdsa Master of Science degree in mechanical engineering or biomedical engineering with first class grades. He/she should have a keen interest in computational mechanics, signal and data processing and applications of cutting-edge imaging and modelling technology. Very good programming skills (Matlab, Python, C) and interest in both theoretical and practical work are a premise. An innovative spirit and team player skills round off the profile.
