Researcher Position: Subject-Specific Spine Modelling at Eindhoven University of Technology

The Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) invites applications for a Researcher Position on Subject-Specific Spine Modelling at Eindhoven University of Technology.
AIS is a 3D deformity of the spine affecting previously healthy children, substantially reducing their quality of life and creating a life-long burden of disease. Up to now, we have been unable to provide a cure for these children suffering from AIS partly because its cause and mechanism of disease are still unknown. ScoliStorm will create a paradigm shift in AIS research by uncovering its complex perfect storm of anatomical, biomechanical, and mechanobiological causes in the intervertebral disc and exploring this disease mechanism whereby predictive triggers are identified that can be used for prevention and early treatment. The research is multidisciplinary covering clinical, imaging, image analysis, biomechanical, mechanobiological, and biological research.

Duration: A full-time employment for 2 years.
