Two PhD positions at the University of Twente, NL

Dear all,

We are looking for two PhD students working at the group of Clinical Neurophysiology (, University of Twente (UT), on computational models for the treatment of epilepsy with deep brain stimulation. This is in collaboration with Robert Oostenveld (Donders/RU), Bettina Schwab (UT), Michel van Putten (UT).

Here is some more info:
“We are seeking two highly motivated PhD candidates to strengthen our research. In Project 1, leveraging EEG data during DBS stimulation, you will develop personalized biophysical models based on patient-specific anatomical characteristics, bioelectrical signatures such as tissue conductivity, and clinical outcomes. The application of state-of-the-art finite element methods (FEMs) and source reconstruction methods will lead to new strategies for DBS treatment optimization. In Project 2, using simultaneous EEG and LFP recordings, you will build and validate a multiscale approach that combines a mesoscopic model of the thalamocortical projections involved during DBS stimulation and a macroscopic volume conduction model based on EEG recordings.”

Please, spread the word! And contact me for further info.

All the best,
Maria-Carla Piastra
