Post-doctoral position in neuromonitoring of premature born infants within the Horizon Europe project Prometeus

ICFO is offering a postdoctoral position to a well-qualified, highly motivated and dynamic young scientist who wishes to enhance his/her scientific career in a friendly and stimulating environment.

ICFO Medical Optics group led by ICREA professor Turgut Durduran is a partner in Horizon Europe project "Preterm Brain-Oxygenation and Metabolic EU-Sensing: Feed the Brain" (Prometeus). Prometeus will develop a metabolic model of the interaction between the three key brain fuels and their effect on regional cerebral blood flow (CBF), oxygen saturation (StO2) and metabolism (CMRO2). The model will serve to individualize brain nutrition targeting “brain health” according to the inputs derived from novel minimally invasive metabolic sensing systems. ICFO will participate in all core tasks related to neuromonitoring of cerebral oxygen metabolism such as technology development, data acquisition, analysis and interpretation.

The postdoctoral fellow will be responsible for developing SCOS modules, their integration with other modules, data acquisition, analysis and interpretation. They will also represent ICFO in the consortium and participate in secondments with academia and industry.
