PhD Position in Multiscale Brain Injury Modelling at KTH-Stockholm

One PhD Student position in Multiscale brain injury modeling for 4-5 years; expected from March 1, 2021 or according to agreement at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden.

Eligibility: have basic studies at the MSc level in medical engineering, bio mechanics, engineering physics, mechanical engineering, or the like; Requirements for English equivalent to English B/6.

Requested qualifications: Applicants should have good knowledge of mechanics, understanding of biomechanics, interest in learning biophysics, and attitude to work across different fields.

Project description: The doctoral position is hosted at the Division of Neuronic Engineering at KTH. The Division of Neuronic Engineering at KTH focuses on research on neck and head biomechanics. Finite Element (FE) models of the human neck and head have been developed to study the neck and head kinematics as well as stresses of various kinds. The project aims to improve the prediction and understanding of brain injuries by combining FE models with molecular-based models. The applicant will use FE modeling, molecular dynamics techniques and develop a multiscale approach to assess the micro-injury mechanism in terms of possible triggering events, involved substructures, and strain rate dependencies.

Salary: According to KTH’s Doctoral student salary agreement with monthly salary at full-time before tax 30 000 - 34 500 SEK.

How to apply: Follow the instructions from the official link at KTH Vacancies to apply (the link also provides further details of the position).
