Only Early Stage Position (ESR) number 3 is available!
OBERON offers a total of 15 PhD projects. This job announcement refers to one student who will only do part of the project (1 year and 9 months) without having to do a PhD.
Project ESR-3 (PWR)
Topic: Measurement and analysis of eye dynamics and its contribution to image quality
Objective: To investigate the coupling between optics and mechanics when under internal ocular muscle forces and how this affects the external shape of the eye globe. This has wide ranging impact on a number of eye conditions. The project will involve Finite Element Modelling of these optical and mechanical interactions. Validation will be made with cohorts of young and old healthy volunteers, as well as patients with glaucoma. The successful candidate will be based in WUST with 2 planned secondments. The candidate should have a degree in Biomedical or Mechanical Engineering, Physics or Computing and possess computational competency and skills in Finite Element Modelling. Optical modelling knowledge is not necessary.
