1. PhD @ NTNU: Control and estimation for distributed-parameter systems
We are seeking candidates with a strong background in systems and control or applied mathematics for research on control and estimation for distributed-parameter systems. While the research topic is initially broad, a specific objective of the project is to develop state- and parameter estimation schemes for application within medical imaging based on ultrasound. Experience with medical imaging is therefore an advantage, but not required.
Deadline: January 23rd, 2011.
2. PhD @ KTH: Networked Systems Security
The positions will be with the Security group at LCN, and the successful applicants shall benefit from a network of collaborations in KTH and beyond. The Security group is internationally oriented and offers a stimulating and enjoyable working environment that favors diversity.
The emphasis of the envisioned work shall be on design and analysis of secure and privacy-enhancing protocols. Candidates with strong experimental/systems or theoretical profiles are encouraged to apply.

3. PhD @ UTwente: Medical Robotics
Minimally invasive surgery has revolutionized medicine by enabling interventions without large incisions, thereby significantly improving clinical outcomes. Such surgical techniques include insertions of needles, catheters, and endoscopes. For effective medical diagnosis and treatment, the instrument must reach its intended target. In order to increase the targeting accuracy of the procedure and improve clinical outcomes, the goal of this research project is to develop methods for modeling the interaction of existing and novel medical instruments with soft tissues and with fluids. These models would be used to track and control the path of the medical instrument using a clinical imaging modality.
Deadline: 15 January 2011.
