Location: Milano


Applicants are invited for two postdoctoral positions at Politecnico di Milano (PoliMI, Department of Mechanical Engineering) beginning May 2018, funded by the ERC Starting Grant “Laser Ablation: SElectivity and monitoRing for OPTImal tuMor removal”.

We are looking for candidates with a strong research potential, interested in investigating measurement techniques of physiological parameters for biomedical application and predictive mathematical models of biomedical phenomena.

Particular attention will be paid to candidates who already have some experience working on one or more of the following topics: heat transfer modeling in biological tissue, optical-thermal response of laser irradiated tissue, design and manufacturing of fiber optic based sensors for biomedical applications (e.g., fiber Bragg gratings), thermal measurements, laser systems, medical image processing, software development for real-time physics simulation of the human body, computer science for medical application, signal processing, plasmonic surface resonance.

The candidates should also have a relevant track records of publications in international journals, and be fluent in English. Experience in fund raising and lab management (e.g., quotation inquiry, negotiation with suppliers) will be also positively considered.


Contract details

The postdoctoral researcher will be part of the research unit “Mechanical and Thermal Measurements” at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of Politecnico di Milano (PoliMi).
