Description

Project description

Third-cycle subject: Engineering Mechanics

Within the Biomedical flows group within the Department of Engineering Mechanics we focus on blood flow phenomena, blood clot formation and bleeding in artificial life-supporting devices such as heart-and lung machines and in components such as blood pumps and cannulae, but also on formation of atherosclerosis in patient related geometries. The cross disciplinary work carried out within the group is computational and experimental and is carried out in close collaboration with clinic.

We have now the opportunity to expand our research group with one more PhD student having a background in engineering physics, applied mathematics or mechanical engineering. We seek a PhD student that is highly motivated by cross disciplinary (medical technology) work where the focus will be directed towards understanding blood clot formation in artificial components and in our circulatory system important to improve patient treatment, particularly focusing on intensive care and renal medicine. Both numerical and experimental work will be carried out.

The project's research questions are strongly anchored in the clinical application and is financed by the European Research Council (ERC). The project will be carried out together with supervisors and members of the research group having both engineering and medical background. The work also includes working with other researchers active both nationally and internationally.

Supervision:

Professor Lisa Prahl Wittberg will be supervising the project.
