‘Opto-Biomechanical Eye Research Network’ OBERON -> Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network in Active and Healthy Ageing
Deadline: 10th February 2023
The ‘Opto-Biomechanical Eye Research Network’ OBERON is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action (MSCA) Innovative Training Network (ITN) that involve collaboration and secondments between 8 beneficiaries and 5 partners (3 hospitals, 2 industry partners), spanning 8 European countries (United Kingdom, Belgium, Portugal, Switzerland, Spain, Poland, France and the Netherlands) in a four-year (2021-2025) programme of interdisciplinary and cross-national doctoral education.
OBERON aims to create a unique, biologically viable and physiologically relevant modelling platform describing the interactions between the optical and mechanical properties of the eye so that it can be adapted and used for investigation and enhancing treatment for a wide range of ocular conditions.
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.
