Are you a high potential young researcher who recently obtained a PhD degree in computational biomedicine or related fields, and do you want to join our multidisciplinary team to further develop your career as an independent scientist? Do you want to push the frontier of computational modelling in medicine, and help shape the exciting new development of in silico trials? Are you keen to join our international project that aims to develop, validate, and apply the first in silico stroke trial? If you recognise yourself, we are happy to invite you to apply for this position.

Project description

An exciting new emerging application of Computational Biomedicine are in-silico trials, which aim to reduce, refine, or even replace animal studies or (pre-) clinical human trials by simulating medical products or treatments on the population level.

In the INSIST project we aim to develop in-silico trials for acute ischemic stroke.

Your role will be to integrate models, as developed within the INSIST project, for virtual stroke populations, brain perfusion and metabolism, stroke treatment options (mechanical thrombectomy and thrombolysis), and statistical clinical outcome models into an overall in-silico stroke trial, to validate it on retrospective data from earlier stroke trials, and in collaboration with medical professionals and medical industry, to design and carry out two prospective in-silico stroke trials.
