13 PhD positions in MARIE CURIE Innovative Training Network EMERALD


Within the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (MSCA-ITN) EMERALD, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, thirteen positions are available on fixed-term contracts for 36 months with a start date in either October 2018 or January 2019, depending on the host institution.

EMERALD (ElectroMagnetic imaging for a novel genERation of medicAL Device) is the coherent action of leading European engineering groups involved in electromagnetic (EM) technology for medical imaging to form a cohort of highly-skilled researchers capable of accelerating the translation of this technology “from the research bench to patient bedside”. To this end, EMERALD will establish a group of 13 outstanding early stage researchers who will be the European leaders in this field, through a unique scientific and training programme.

The EMERALD consortium involves academic institutions, industrial partners, hospitals and university medical centers. The EMERALD trained researchers will drive the future developments of EM imaging technology, thanks to the targeted skills they will attain, and their established connections with clinicians and stakeholders.

The specific calls are available on Euraxxes at the link:

The deadline is June 1, 2018.

In particular, two positions are available at CNR-IREA in Naples:

The first one involves the development of Microwave Imaging algorithms for clinical follow-up devices. The main research topic will be the design, implementation, and testing of microwave imaging tools to process data collected by means of devices developed within the EMERALD network for clinical follow-up and image-guided treatment (e.g. chemotherapy follow-up, hyperthermia monitoring, image-guided thermal ablation).

The main research topic of the second position will be the design, realization, and testing of a non-invasive, safe, portable and cost-efficient microwave imaging device to monitor thermal ablation treatments.
