An opportunity to do the doctorate in an international consortium within the Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions (MSCA) – Doctoral Networks DN 2022, of the Horizon Europe Program

The BSICoS group (Biomedical Signal Interpretation and Computational Simulation) in the Aragon Institute for Engineering Research (I3A) of the University of Zaragoza is looking for a researcher to develop his/her PhD in an international consortium within the Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions (MSCA) – Doctoral Networks DN 2022, of the Horizon Europe Program, with the researcher Esther Pueyo, in the INSIDE-HEART Project.

INSIDE-HEART brings together universities, companies and hospitals from seven countries (Italy, Finland, France, Israel, Netherlands, Spain, and Sweden) with the main scope of establishing a multi-disciplinary network to tackle the design and the early-phase validation of digital biomarkers, specifically targeting the diagnosis of supraventricular arrhythmias (SVAs) and their associated potential for adverse risk assessment, via the joint combination of signal processing, artificial intelligence and non-clinical devices. This will be achieved by performing excellent research through a unique doctoral training “without walls” among field-expert academic, industrial and clinical entities.

The composite nature of the INSIDE-HEART network ensures a highly qualified training and research infrastructure for the specific goal, which aims to generate a new profile of researcher with multi-sectoral expertise able to fill the existing gap, i.e., the absence of digital biomarkers for SVAs reliably estimated with non-clinical devices, taking into account basic research, clinical needs and business interests. Research and training are designed to consider relevant aspects such as public concern of private data management, gender and ethics related to SVAs, all according to Responsible Research & Innovation principles and Open Science practices.

Esther Pueyo, Associate Professor working on signal processing and in-silico electrophysiological modelling in the University of Zaragoza. She has published 115 full journal papers, 15 journal abstracts and over 100 contributions to conference proceedings. She is Board Member/Associate Editor of 7 JCR journals. Scopus H-index is 28. Supervised 22 PhD students, 10 Postdoc and 26 MSc students, within projects like: ERC Starting Grant MODELAGE, ITN Marie Curie projects MY-ATRIA and PIC and ICT-health projects BRAV3 and preDiCT. PI of 17 international and national research projects Currently PI of 4 research grants, coordinating ~30 researchers.
