PhD position on Shape observers for elastodynamics problems – Applications to medical imaging and to the characterisation of red blood cells

In mechanics, can we physically characterize a dynamical system by observing its shape variations? More precisely, given an (infinite-dimensional) dynamical system, how can we assimilate the shape of the deforming domain to estimate the complete solution and eventually identify some physical parameters? Our problem belongs to the category of data Continue ReadingPhD position on Shape observers for elastodynamics problems – Applications to medical imaging and to the characterisation of red blood cells

(Closed) PhD position on multi-scale modeling of cardiac growth & remodeling

Context Living tissues are made of highly complex hierarchical materials, with a large number of biochemical/biophysical mechanisms interacting at various spatial and temporal scales. This complexity can be addressed through modern modeling and simulation methods (e.g., multi-physics coupling, homogenization, model reduction, etc.), in close interaction with experimental assays. This leads Continue Reading(Closed) PhD position on multi-scale modeling of cardiac growth & remodeling

(Closed) PhD position on multi-scale modeling of muscle contraction

PhD opening: Multi-scale modeling of muscle contraction - From stochastic dynamics of molecular motors to continuum mechanics, in interaction with experimental assays Context Striated muscles (i.e. skeletal and cardiac muscles) are made of a multi-scale active biological material, capable of transforming metabolic energy into mechanical work. This thermodynamic conversion is Continue Reading(Closed) PhD position on multi-scale modeling of muscle contraction

(Closed) Software Engineer Position on applications of Verdandi data assimilation library in personalized cardiac modeling

Context: In scientific computing, data assimilation methods allow to combine various sources of information: information embedded in a physical-numerical model on the one hand; information contained in measurements on the other hand. These methods are widely used in geophysics (in particular in weather forecasting), and their potential is huge in Continue Reading(Closed) Software Engineer Position on applications of Verdandi data assimilation library in personalized cardiac modeling
