Designation/Position- Postdoc position
The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Norway offer postdoc position in the field of biomechanical modeling/biomedical engineering for the cardiovascular system is available at Department of Structural Engineering
About- The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) creates knowledge for a better world and solutions that can change everyday life. One postdoc position within the field of biomechanical modeling/biomedical engineering for the cardiovascular system is available at Department of Structural Engineering at NTNU, Trondheim, Norway. The position will be organized under the cardiovascular modeling project headed by professor Leif Rune Hellevik in the Biomechanics group.
The candidate will contribute to the further development of ongoing projects within the group such as Model based, noninvasive diagnosis of coronary artery disease with 3D ultrasound and CT, Uncertainty quantification and sensitivity analysis for cardiovascular simulations, NTNU Human Physiome, but also follow up and contribute to new projects applying modeling and engineering approaches to personalize cardiovascular simulations (i.e. combining wearables and models), and in particular to strengthen the collaboration with the Cardiac Exercise Research Group, and TrollLABS at NTNU as well as St. Olavs University Hospital in Trondheim.
