Today, society faces major challenges, including climate change, pollution, lack of education, unemployment, and providing security, well-being and health(care) to all. To address these challenges, it is important to converge different disciplines to provide entirely new solutions and enhanced capabilities.
Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), Erasmus MC, University Medical Center Rotterdam have the ambition to become a worldwide frontrunner in convergence for health(care). As a first step towards this ambition, all parties concerned have adopted a convergence strategy for health(care).To kickstart the implementation of this convergence strategy, attract convergence talent and connect research groups to our institutes, we have 34 vacancies for post-doctoral researchers within 17 two-year convergence for health(care) projects.
When hired, the postdoctoral researcher will work closely with the supervisors, Principal investigators and Collaborating investigators of the project to conduct high calibre research. The recruit is also encouraged to initiate and lead collaborative work with other postdoctoral researchers within the Convergence for health(care) initiative. Salary will be commensurate with qualification and increase with experience.
Upon close inspection seemingly distinct problems are often underpinned by the same scientific challenges. In this project we face this situation in relation to diagnosing heart disease and improving neurosurgery. The challenge we take up is to use Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to detect tiny magnetic field alterations, called susceptibilities, induced by the vessel networks in the heart and brain. Advanced post-processing and machine learning...Read more »
We are looking for two self-motivated postdocs with a strong interest in working in a flagship multidisciplinary project between Erasmus MC and TU Delft on the topic of electromechanics of organs, supported by the Convergence initiative. Cardiac fibrillation is characterized by an irregular, fast heart rate that can increase your risk of strokes, heart failure and other heart-related complications. Unfortunately, cardiac arrhythmias are the cardi...Read more »
Scientists from Erasmus MC University Medical Centre Rotterdam and Delft University of Technology have joined forces to work towards improved care of patients with knee osteoarthritis. Using state-of-the-art artificial intelligence techniques, the researchers will develop advanced computer algorithms for clinical decision support. These algorithms construct a detailed, personal profile of each individual patient, based on clinical measures, imagi...Read more »
We are looking for two self-motivated postdocs with a strong interest in working in a flagship multidisciplinary project between Erasmus MC and TU Delft on high precision cancer therapy, supported by the Convergence initiative. In this project we will develop novel theranostics targeting fibroblast activation protein (FAP) labeled (i) with various radionuclides to visualize and destroy cancer cells, and (ii) fluorescent dyes that can be used for ...Read more »
