General objectives of the DECODE project

DECODE focuses on the training of young scientists on the use of drug-eluting devices to combat the burden of peripheral artery disease (PAD). DECODE will provide young researchers with excellent scientific, technological and complementary skills through a multidisciplinary training programme having as an outmost scientific aim the development, optimization, and assessment of a drug eluting balloon system for the improved treatment of PAD. The aim of DECODE is twofold: a) to enhance the competitiveness and research careers of young researchers at European level as after the completion of the programme they will be able to face current and future challenges on the domain of biomedical engineering, b) to convert knowledge, ideas and expertise from both the academic and non-academic sectors into a novel product which will improve the monitoring and treatment of patients suffering from PAD and their quality of life, providing thus a significant economic and social benefit.

Specific Information for the position

A position for a PhD candidate is open at the MEDAPP S.A in Poland in the laboratory of Prof. Andrzej Skalski.

MedApp R&D Department will be involved in research & development of new methods of medical data visualization, processing and analysis. One of the aim is to develop the CarnaLife Holo software. CarnaLife Holo is a groundbreaking technology of three-dimensional medical data imaging, facilitating the planning and execution of medical procedures. With the use of Microsoft HoloLens 2 it creates a real-space three-dimensional hologram reflecting the true structure of anatomical area being imaged.

The position is connected with development and implementation of a module for Augmented Reality (AR) application to allow measurements and interaction with visualized data in the holographic space.

 

The ESR will primarily be trained in software engineering, holographic data visualization, measurements techniques with data analysis.

 

The ESR will gain expertise in

1) software engineering

2) algorithms development

3) AR/VR solutions

Several secondments to other consortium partners are planned.

 

Additional Information

According to the EU rules for the ITN projects, the recruited researchers must comply with the following conditions:

  • are, at the date of recruitment, early-stage researchers (i.e. NOT have a doctoral degree AND be in the first 4 years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research career).
  • are recruited under an employment contract/equivalent direct contract (i.e. other contract with equivalent benefits and social security coverage), including: sickness, parental, unemployment and invalidity benefits - pension rights and - benefits for accidents at work and occupational diseases.
  • be employed for at least 3 months and up to 36 months.
  • be employed full-time.
  • work exclusively on the research training activities.
  • must comply with the following mobility rule: not have resided in the country of the recruiting beneficiary for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the recruitment date (and not have carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in that country) — unless as part of a procedure for obtaining refugee status under the Geneva Convention. For beneficiaries that are international European interest organisations or international organisations: not have spent with the beneficiary more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the recruitment date.
