Simulation of FUS Induced Blood-Brain-Barrier Opening (PhD)

Description:

A PhD student will focus on simulating high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU)-induced opening of the blood-brain barrier and targeted drug delivery – a relatively novel medical technique. A simulation environment will be developed capable of computing ultrasound propagation; micro-bubble cavitation; pressure-induced flow and transport variations; and resulting biological consequences and effects. Interaction with medical and biological experts will be possible and close contacts to other research groups in the field will have to be maintained throughout the project. Novel numerical techniques and mathematical models will have to be developed and implemented.

Development of a Multiphysics Framework (PhD)

Description:

This PhD project will focus on creating a multiphysics environment suitable for the flexible coupling of different solvers and extending our existing range of solvers. Additional tasks will include the development of visualization pipelines and optimized solutions for specific application problems. Parallelization and hardware accelerated computing are other potential fields of work.

Place:

IT’IS Foundation for Research on Information Technologies in Society, Zurich, Switzerland

Duration and Commencement:

3-4 years from as arranged.
