  • Czech Technical University in Prague now offers a new fellowship program, the CTU Global Postdoc Fellowship. This new and attractive two-year fellowship- program offers excellent researchers who have recently completed their PhD the chance to continue their research career at CTU. Fellows receive a two year fellowship and become members of a team led by a mentor.

    Within this project, the candidate will develop experimental tools, both hardware and software (a control system) to aid therapists (medical doctors) or their patients to monitor diabetic ulcer (diabetic leg) development in order to better treat and heal the trauma. The unique set of foreseen means consist of a dummy of a wound with a fully controllable spatial distribution of moist and temperature field to foster developments in related areas by avoid testing the research results on humans (legislation purposes), (ii) a development of contact-less devices of thermal field (portable thermo-cameras) and non-invasive moist observation, (iii) development of a protocol of connecting the previously proposed "sensorics" with smart phone-like devices in order to provide instant data to doctors and patients/users. The project will be conducted in collaboration with Jan Havelka, the Research Assistant at Experimental Center within the OpenMechanics Lab that is a joint project of Experimental Centre and Department of Mechanics of FCE CTU in Prague.
