2018-03-21: 13 PhD positions available all over Europe in the brand new project EMERALD: ElectroMagnetic imaging for a novel genERation of medicAL Devices

EMERALD is a new Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (MSCA-ITN) funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, proposed within the recently completed COST Action MiMed.

EMERALD is the coherent action of leading European engineering groups involved in electromagnetic (EM) technology for medical imaging to form a cohort of highly-skilled researchers capable of accelerating the translation of this technology “from research bench to patient bedside”. EM imaging technology involves the illumination of the portion of the body under investigation with low-power non-ionizing EM waves in the microwave spectrum and the use of the resultant backscattered signals to generate images of the internal structure of the body. 13 PhD positions are available across Europe. Full details: Brochure EMERALD

2018-02-23: 2 full time PhD positions in the project at Erasmus MC (University Medical Center Rotterdam)

Are you interested in a PhD at the edge of MR imaging, EM hyperthermia and Cancer therapy? Are you triggered by a highly translational environment at a world leading university medical center? Do you want to improve head and neck cancer therapy? We offer 2 full time PhD positions in the project “Multi-coil magnetic resonance guided hyperthermia for precision treatment of advanced head and neck cancer”. The goals of the project are to develop 1) an integrated MRI -hyperthermia device, 2) scan techniques tailored for maximum temperature imaging accuracy and 3) an MR adaptive treatment strategy. The first two years of the project are dedicated to development and testing of the technologies, whereas a clinical validation study will be conducted in the second part of this four year project.
