Medical Decision Support (MMDS), a position as Ph.D. fellow (position no. 562/06-21-26814) is open for appointment from 01.08.2006.

Job description:
Biomedical Science and Engineering
The PhD stipend is available within the general study programme “Biomedical Science and Engineering”.

objective of this research is to understand, develop and apply
mathematical models of physiological processes in the control of
mechanical ventilation. Patients residing in the intensive care
department are critically ill, and their respiration is often supported
mechanically. Mathematical models may help the clinician setting the
ventilator to decide the appropriate ventilation strategy, so as to
provide the patient with necessary ventilation without damaging their

The perfect candidate could have a background in
biomedical engineering, and the physiological modelling of the
respiratory system, plus an understanding of the trade offs applied
when mechanically ventilating intensive care patients.
