Gross salary of the position will be around 2600 €.
About the position:
ESR15: “Multiparametric atrial fibrillation stratification”
Objectives: Current management of AF patients is based on patient’s symptoms and risk factors, but not on the evaluation of the atrial structural or functional state. The objective of this project is to propose a stratification criterion to select the best therapeutic option in each individual patient that incorporates atrial-specific markers in the decision-making protocol. we will use machine learning methods (including incremental online-learning) to identify sub-phenotypes of AF that are associated with better response to each AF therapy
Expected Results: We will first develop a software package for incorporating atrial-specific markers to the currently considered risk factors to predict success of the different therapeutic approaches employed in AF management. As a result, we will develop a decision-making algorithm to help selecting the best therapeutic option in an individual patient basis and taking into account gender related characteristics that accounts for the patient’s specific atrial substrate.
Required background: Master’s in Electrical/Biomedical engineering, Computing or related.
