We are looking for a PhD candidate
PhD contract and topic
A PhD contract (former FPI program) is offered for a PhD position at the Biomedical Signal Interpretation and Computational Simulation (BSICoS) group of the Aragón Institute of Engineering Research, University of Zaragoza.
The PhD thesis is associated with the research grant “Towards improved management of cardiovascular diseases by integrative in silico-in vitro-in vivo research into heart’s structure, function and autonomic regulation”, funded by Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation, with reference PID2019-105674RB-I00.
As part of his/her PhD thesis, the candidate will work on some of the following lines:
- Processing of signals acquired by patch-clamp and optical mapping as well as electrograms and electrocardiograms.
- Incorporation into multi-scale computational models of the heart and the autonomic nervous system of all the information extracted from the signals
and from additional processing of histological images and molecular biology data.
- Development of numerical methods for simulation of cardiac activity.
- Application of artificial intelligence techniques for prediction of abnormalities in heart’s electrical behavior.
