‘ESR Recruitment’

The DEUSTO INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH SCOOL (DIRS) will open a call to recruit 16 Marie Skłodowska-Curie researchers

Supported and co-funded by the European Commission (Marie Skłodowska-Curie) and over 40 partners, the University of Deusto, the only Spanish university selected to develop this programme in the doctoral studies category, will shortly open a call to recruit 8 researchers for three years. The second call for recruiting a second cohort of 8 researchers will be launched in 2017.

The Deusto International Research School (DIRS) aims at attracting qualified international Early Stage Researchers for high quality PhD training. Selected researchers will enrol in an attractive and highly internationalised, inter-disciplinar and inter-sectoral research eco-system. PhD researchers develop their work in one of the seven existing doctoral programmes linked to one of the four focus areas: Health and Wellbeing; Human Rights, Peace and Conflict Resolution; Sustainable Development and Innovation; and Education and Lifelong Learning.

Following high quality European Commission’s requirements, the candidates will be selected via an open, transparent, merit-based, impartial, equitable and internationally advertised procedure, in order to avoid any kind of inequality or discrimination, guarantying a fair selection process.

Regarding terms and conditions, the selected candidates will sign an employment contract and will be hosted in an attractive research environment characterised by excellence, internationality, interdisciplinarity and cross-sectorality. In addition, the selected researchers will benefit from a shared supervision and mentoring process formally inscribed in the Doctoral Agreement and the individualized Personal Career Development Plan.

A specific website containing all the information related to this call, such as applicant’s requirements, eligibility criteria, expected timing and application form is planned to be launched in the coming months. And the first call for applicants is expected to be opened in at the beginning of 2016.

Full information on the vacancies and specific requirements will be published on the web of the DIRS on February 15th. Please, check the website regularly for updates on this call.

4 Early Stage Researcher Positions. European Industrial Doctorate CardioFunXion

CardioFunXion provides a platform for industrial-clinical-academic collaboration and will be an example of future partnerships in more efficient and auditable clinical image interpretation tools. All partners bring specific expertise: either they produce workstations (PHILIPS), use them (IDIBAPS, CHUC) or contribute to algorithms to be incorporated into them (UPF). By organising and accelerating exchange of knowledge, experience and tools between the different actors, CardioFunXion will consolidate sustainable partnerships. The project will give early-stage researchers (ESRs) the opportunity to be exceptionally well-placed to become key future contributors to the development of advanced imaging techniques for the assessment of cardiovascular disorders, equipping them with multidisciplinary state-of-the-art skills plus awareness and experience in commercial development, contributing to European scientific and commercial capabilities in an area where technological, scientific and clinical developments are very closely linked.

The program is led by:

  • Universitat Pompeu Fabra (PhySense Group: Sensing in Physiology and Biomedicine, Department of Information and Communication Technologies) in Barcelona
  • Philip Research France, Medysis.
  • The Institut de Investigacions Biomediques Agusti Pi i Sunyer (IDIBAPS) in Barcelona and the Centre Hospitalier et Universitaire de Caen are the associated clinical partner. They provide a full immersion in a clinical environment, offering the possibility to understand practical challenges behind problems they are tackling.

Marie Sklodowska-Curie European Industrial Doctorate CardioFunXion: Towards a novel paradigm for cardiac function announces 4 PhD fellowships starting end of 2015. PhD students will be supervised by PIs from UPF and Philips (spending 50% of the time in each), and include the collaboration with the two clinical centers involved

Projects:

  • Longitudinal assessment of cardiac function
  • Fusion of heterogeneous measurements into a physiological plausible patient representation
  • Open reference databases and tools for the multimodal validation of strain
  • Novel approach for evidence based classification of heart failure etiologies
