The research will involve the development of Boundary Element and Finite Element methods to improve the forward model.
To improve the accuracy and speed of the solution, we will investigate multi-grid solution techniques and the use of deformable forward models to minimise artefact in the reconstructed images.
PhD studentship 2 (based at Middlesex University, Ref: MU/EIT2): Wearable monitoring devices.
This project will involve the development of a wearable monitoring device that allows continuous or intermittent monitoring of physiologic signals is crucial for the advancement of both the diagnosis as well as treatment of neonate respiratory function.
The work is particularly suited to applicants with a background in Engineering Design.
Outstanding, enthusiastic graduates, with a first or upper second class honours degree (first class honours preferred) or equivalent and/or MSc in engineering, mathematic, physics or related disciplines are being sought.
Experience in numerical modelling, Matlab, or design engineering would be desirable.
The studentships are available for a period of three years and will cover full student fees and subsistence expenses.
The closing date for applications is the 18th June.
To apply, please email a covering letter stating the vacancy reference, your expertise, experience and research interests, a copy of your CV, and the names and contact details of at least two referees, for the PhD studentships at Middlesex University to Professor Richard Bayford (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org).
