We are seeking for a doctoral student to support our research group in 3D mathematical modelling and imaging. The focus will be on the remote sensing applications of biomedical engineering and geoscience.
We would appreciate knowledge in the following fields (three or more):
1. Maxwell's equations.
2. Biomedical and/or geophysical engineering, e.g., modelling of quasi-static biopotential fields and/or waveform radar signals.
3. Finite element method.
4. 3D mesh generation and editing software, realistic domains.
5. Matlab and C++ programming.
6. High-performance computing.
The Laboratory of Mathematics, Tampere University of Technology, will be the host institute of the position. The working period can include a secondment in a collaborating institute. The project will also be supported by the Laboratory of Pervasive Computing, TUT, and other project collaborators. Suitable persons to supervise the thesis work will be decided later.
