PhD position, Computational Electromagnetism, Université Côte d'Azur, Nice, France

Applications are invited for a 3-year full-time PhD position funded by Université Côte d'Azur and the European Union’s Horizon 2020 (Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant) in the framework of the collaboration between the department of Electrical Engineering Antenna and Telecommunications and the Mathematics Department at the Université Côte d'Azur, Nice, France. 

The Ph.D subject concerns in a broad sense the domain of applied mathematics and scientific computing for medical applications and will be developed in close collaboration with Lincoln Agritech, New Zealand, an Independent R&D provider to the private sector and government and university hospital of Nice.  The candidate will work on the mathematical and numerical modelling of a hand-held medical imaging scanner that delivers high resolution imaging for use by healthcare practitioners, as well in the development of a reconstruction algorithm based on Open Source FEM codes and actively take part in the trials for the whole system.  

Required skills: A Master degree or international equivalent in applied mathematics, scientific computing and connected fields (with knowledge of mathematical modelling, numerical analysis and programming) is highly desirable.  The candidate must show interest and motivation for interdisciplinary research. 

If interested please contact (before applying):, 

Eligibility criteria: BoostUrCAreer (doctoral programme) will abide by the mobility rule defined for MSCA, the reference date being the call deadline, meaning applicants will only be eligible if they have lived or had their main activity (work, studies etc.) in France for less than 12 months within the past three years at the time of recruitment (1 September 2020). Applicants must have a master’s degree or an international equivalent.

The EU definition of Early-Stage Researchers (ESR) is the following:

“ESRs shall, at the time of recruitment by the host organisation, be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and have not been awarded a doctoral degree. Full-time equivalent research experience is measured from the date when the researcher obtained the degree entitling him or her to embark on a doctorate, (either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the researcher is recruited) even if a doctorate was never started or envisaged. Part-time research experience will be counted pro-rata.”

Deadline to apply: 20 March 2020, on the site
