Numerical Modeling of Ultrasonic Wave Propagation in Therapeutic Focused Ultrasound Treatments (PhD Student)
Workplace:Zurich, SwitzerlandCompany:IT'IS Foundation for Research on Information Technologies in Society,
The IT’IS Foundation is an independent, non-profit research institute pursuing advanced research in simulation methodologies and applications of physical, physiological, and biological processes to bridge the gap between bench and bedside in the emerging field of personalized medicine.
One of the Foundation’s growing fields of expertise is focused ultrasound (FUS) and the modeling of complex FUS-based treatment scenarios. FUS is a promising non-invasive alternative to interventional therapies. In that context, the IT’IS Foundation has developed a framework for numerical multi-physics modeling of FUS treatments in computational anatomical human models generated from medical image data.
To keep building our expertise and consolidate our framework, we are seeking a PhD candidate to extend our existing framework by implementing additional propagation models, e.g. (visco)elastic wave propagation, with various numerical techniques such as finite-elements, angular spectrum, spectral collocation, or k-space pseudo-spectral methods.Education / Profile:• MSc or equivalent degree in physics, medical physics, mathematics, computer science, electrical or communications engineering, or similar field
Applications should consist of:
• a cover letter including the position title and a statement addressing the selection criteria and outlining the motivation for applying for the position
• a detailed CV
• copies of degree certificates and / or diplomas, including grades
• letters of recommendation
We look forward to receiving your complete resume materials as a single pdf file at: email@example.com.
