Early Stage Researcher of 3 years
in the Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN network UCOM
(Ultrasound Cavitation in sOft Materials)


Host Institution: Institute of Cancer Research, London, UK

Supervisor: Prof. Gail ter Haar/

Project Title: Cavitation characterisation in tissue mimicking materials (TMM)

Objectives: (1) To characterise the onset of cavitation in tissues/TMM; (2) To derive tissue cavitation nucleation models based on prior experiments and link them to tissue damage models for different damage types (heating, mechanical).

The recruited ESR will be enrolled in a PhD programme. In addition to his/her individual doctoral project, the recruited ESR will benefit from a dedicated training programme comprising an integrated curriculum of local and network wide training activities related to the development of scientific knowledge and the enhancement of transferable skills.

The successful candidate will receive a financial package including mobility and family allowance (if applicable), and will be employed according to the rules for Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) in a EU Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Networks (ITN).
