Project Description


I am glad to announce 1 Researcher position available in ITACA Institute (Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain), in the scope of PersonalizeAF Innovative Training Network (ITN), funded by the European Comission’s H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme.

This position will allow the Early Stage Researchers to enroll in the “Technologies for Health and Wellbeing” PhD Programme at Universitat Politècnica de València. The researcher will be able to complement the research activity and academic training with international and intersectorial secondments, workshops and summer schools.

This research will be focused in Technologies for atrial state characterization, Technologies for atrial fibrillation treatment and Decision Support platforms for patient management, starting the 1st of July 2020 for a period of 36 months.

Gross salary of the position will be around 2600 €.

About the position:

ESR11: "Post-processing of ECGI to detect atrial drivers". Aim: to develop reliable post-processing software that allows identifying atrial drivers on ECGI data from patients with AF. We will investigate the role of combined frequency, phase and temporal domain measurements in the determination of the atrial drivers, together with analysis of the cause-effect relationships on the propagation patterns on a database of 30 patients from FIBHGM. We will make use of convolutional neural networks to identify the most relevant parameters that allow for the identification of atrial drivers.

Expected results: This ESR will provide a validation of the postprocessing algorithms used in ECGI by simultaneous optical mapping data (gold standard) and simulated electrical recordings obtained on the inner surface of a tank filled with saline already available at UBx and study potential integration into EPSOL platform.

Required background: Master’s in Electrical/Biomedical engineering, Computing or related.
