Sweden: PhD Studentship in Biomechanics

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

A fully founded PhD student position in Biomechanics is available at the Division of Mechanics at Linkoping University, Sweden. The research is aimed at developing three-dimensional mathematical models for active muscle contraction in the arterial wall and study how active contraction affects the mechanical properties.

The mathematical models are derived using fundamental mechanical and thermodynamical principles and includes the mechanochemical coupling associated with the muscle cell membrane. Models of this kind make it possible to simulate common diseases associated with abnormal muscle contraction, e.g., asthma or hypertension, and study the effect of drug administration.
