PhD position in Medical imaging & Image Processing

Job description

In this position you will carry out research in the new field of small animal precision radiotherapy. You will operate in a multidisciplinary team of physicists, biologists, engineers and physicians who share great enthusiasm for small animal research to improve radiotherapy knowledge. The project focusses on the development and integration of imaging techniques such as CT, dual-energy CT, PET and optical imaging with the precision irradiator.The imaging modalities will be used to quantify the anatomy and physiology of tumors and their surrounding tissues, e.g. by determining the level of hypoxia in tumors. MAASTRO is developing a unique treatment planning system in collaboration with the manufacturer of the small animal irradiator.

Phd in BioEngineering in Netherlands

Job Description: Developing machine-learning algorithms based on accelerometer data for assessment of energy expenditure, coordination skill and motoneuronal control in home healthcare applications. Physical activity is affected by health, and thus physical activity is an indicator of health status. Increasing age is accompanied by a decline in coordination and aerobic capacity. In this project, age associated changes as mentioned are studied by measuring patterns of objectively assessed physical activity and smoothness of typical activities like walking. Altered neural control disrupts the timing and muscle patterns necessary for smooth and regular stepping.
