The Department of Biomedical Engineering. There is an endless demand in modern healthcare for technologies to improve the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of health problems.
To meet this demand, TU/e has a strong focus on Health in its research and education programs and has a department devoted entirely to this socially vital area: Biomedical Engineering. Biomedical engineers improve human health by cross-disciplinary activities that integrate the engineering sciences with the biomedical sciences and clinical practice.
The Department of Biomedical Engineering presently consists of thirteen research groups, organized in 3 clusters and covers everything from regenerative engineering to biomedical image analysis to biomolecular engineering. With 58 (assistant, associate and full) professors, over
100 researchers and postdocs, 158 PhD candidates and circa 950 bachelor and master students, the Department of Biomedical Engineering provides high-quality academic education and cutting-edge research.
Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) is ranked as one of the most innovative universities located in the heart of the high-tech industry in the Netherlands, the Brainport region. The unique positioning in one of Europe’s leading tech regions also means excellent job opportunities for spouses. TU/e actively facilitates career opportunities for partners of successful candidates. Eindhoven is the fifth largest city in the Netherlands, and including suburbs, it has about 420,000 inhabitants. Our training and research programs are highly regarded, and we foster close relationships with companies, organizations, and research institutes in the Brainport region and beyond. Fundamental and applied research are equally valued here. The high rank of the TU/e is due to the impact of its scientific research and also to its scientific co-publications with industry. TU/e is a social and inspiring university with a vibrant culture. Surrounded by people who share your scientific ambitions, we translate our basic research into meaningful solutions. The TU/e currently has nine departments, with over 11,000 students in total.
What we are looking for:
We are looking for a creative and pro-active team player to initiate a new research line.
We work on biomedical systems biology, ranging from fundamental science to clinical applications. We unite data-driven and model-based approaches for biomedical research, engineering and healthcare by combining in silico models of the human physiological system with stochastic models to integrate diverse biomedical data. Existing research lines focus on oncology and metabolic disease. We seek to appoint a scientist who is passionate about research as well as teaching. We search for candidates with a PhD degree in computational biology, biomedical engineering or other relevant disciplines to develop a research line on ‘Modelling and AI for Systems Medicine’. New directions for model-based data analysis could be the development and application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology for (real-time) learning and adaptation of dynamic models, to accurately estimate the current state of the system and to predict its future trajectory. This may enable the creation of ‘digital twins’ and contribute to personalized health and precision medicine. We search for candidates that want to play a leading role in this rapidly developing field.
In addition to research and education, the candidate is expected to actively setup collaborations and to secure research funding. The TU/e provides an exciting ecosystem for health technology research and innovation, which includes close collaboration with local hospitals, industry and the cross-departmental artificial intelligence institute EAISI (www.tue.nl/ai ). Health is one of the three application areas of EAISI. We offer a substantial start-up package to kick-off your career.
The city of Eindhoven offers a relaxed, multicultural environment, high quality of life and many options for extra-curricular activities. The city has a mild climate, and it is well-connected by rail, air, and road links with major European cities. The city is at the heart of the Brainport region of Netherlands, a region with high growth, high innovation, and many permanent employment opportunities for expats. Candidates moving to the Netherlands from abroad may qualify for a tax incentive scheme, where 30% of your income is tax free for a (maximum) period of five years. Click here for more information.
Eindhoven University of Technology is a top-ranking Dutch university that combines scientific curiosity with a hands-on attitude. Our spirit of collaboration translates into an open culture and a number 1 position in collaborating with advanced industries. Fundamental knowledge enables us to design solutions for the highly complex problems of today and tomorrow.
