Engineer/Postdoc on Personalized modeling of lung poromechanics in COVID-19

Context & Objectives The COVID-19 infection manifests itself in its severe forms as acute alveolar-interstitial and vascular disease of varying severity, the long-term course of which is unknown. A development towards fibrosing pneumopathy could affect 10 to 30% of survivors of severe forms, which would make it a public health Continue ReadingEngineer/Postdoc on Personalized modeling of lung poromechanics in COVID-19

(Closed) PhD fellowship on Multi-Scale Modeling of Lung Poromechanics

Context & Objectives The lungs are the primary organs of the respiratory system in humans and many animals, responsible for molecular exchanges between external air and internal blood through mechanical ventilation. It has an extraordinary complex architecture, with the inherent fractal structure of the bronchial and blood vessel trees, as Continue Reading(Closed) PhD fellowship on Multi-Scale Modeling of Lung Poromechanics

(Closed) PhD position on Cardiac Biomechanical Modeling of Chronic Right Ventricle Loading and its Impact on the Left Ventricle Health

MΞDISIM research team of Inria Saclay Ile-de-France jointly with University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, is opening an interdisciplinary PhD position combining cardiac simulations of the heart function with clinical data of patients with congenital heart diseases of the right ventricle (RV). Stenosis of the pulmonary valve is a Continue Reading(Closed) PhD position on Cardiac Biomechanical Modeling of Chronic Right Ventricle Loading and its Impact on the Left Ventricle Health

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

(Closed) PhD position on Image-guided Computational Cardiac Mechanics

The Institute for Biomedical Engineering at the University and ETH Zurich and MEDISIM jointly develop Magnetic Resonance image-guided computational models of the heart. As part of our efforts to predict growth and remodeling of the failing heart we are offering a PhD position on image-guided Computational Cardiac Mechanics. The research Continue Reading(Closed) PhD position on Image-guided Computational Cardiac Mechanics

(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
