  • 3 Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellows to become Scientists in nanomedicine, neuroscience and robotics
    The fourth call for applications will be open until December 15th, 2019 (www.minded-cofund.eu). MINDED research activities have already started on January 1st, 2018 and will continue up to December 31st , 2022. The program is coordinated by IIT and funded by the European Commission within the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) framework. Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia – IIT is seeking for 3 research fellows to be involved in the highly interdisciplinary program within the Marie Sklodowska-Curie COFUND project “MultIscale precision therapies for NeuroDEvelopmental Disorders MINDED”, funded by the European Commission with the Grant Agreement n. 754490 . The MINDED program will establish a new class of scientists, trained to integrate their knowledge over the fields of nanomedicine, neuroscience and robotics, with the aim of developing new approaches for the diagnosis, imaging and treatment of neurodevelopmental disorders. The program started in January 1st, 2018 at the IIT Central Lab in Genoa (Italy) and involves 17 more institutions based in Italy, Europe, Israel and USA. The MINDED project was awarded € 3.4 million from the European Commission, and co-funded by IIT for a total investment of € 6.8 million. Neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) represent a huge burden for patients, their families and the overall society. In the European Union, the incidence of autism spectrum disorders is on the rise with more than 100 cases for 10,000 children. This is about ten times larger than the incidence of brain and central nervous system tumors in children. In addition, the lack of effective therapies and the need for lifelong interventions and assistance dramatically affect the national health systems. MINDED will use a multiscale technology approach, integrating Nanomedicine, Molecular Neurosciences and Cognitive Neuroscience Robotics, for the development of novel diagnostic, imaging and therapeutic interventions for NDDs. Whilst Neuroscience investigates the causes of NDDs identifying biological targets for new and more effective therapies, Nanomedicine allows us to develop devices for the precise and patient-specific delivery of novel therapeutic molecules and contrast agents. Early detection will be improved through the application of robotics for assessing quantitatively sensorimotor and cognitive deficits in NDD patients. Selected MINDED fellows will also benefit of a specific training in business development, to facilitate the clinical integration of biomedical products, through internships at the European Medicines Agency and various EU and US companies. MINDED fellows will be appointed with a 2-years contract. Applicants should hold a Doctoral Degree (or at least 4-years of full-time equivalent research experience), be fluent in English, write a research proposal, and have outstanding career record. Following the guidelines of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions, applicants must have not resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Italy for more than 12 months in the last 3 years preceding December 15th 2019.

  • Post-doctoral researcher on new medium access control strategies
    Job description Post-doctoral researcher on new medium access control strategies for millimeter wave radar and communication. At TU Eindhoven we have a vacancy for a post-doctoral researcher in the Center for Wireless Technology Eindhoven (CWTe of the department of Electrical Engineering The Department Electrical Engineering (EE) is one of the nine departments of the Eindhoven University of Technology and provides BSc and MSc programs in Electrical Engineering. The department has nine research groups and has research collaborations with other departments at TU/e as well as with a large number of other universities and companies, both within the Netherlands and internationally. The department has approximately 300 employees and 600 students. The open position is part of the Impuls program, a strategic cooperation between NXP and TU/e. Job description As market penetration of automotive radars increases, performance limitation due to radar-to-radar interference will become a serious problem. Another point of concern is that road users in intelligent transportation systems (ITS) exchange information for increasing traffic safety and for enlarging the road-infrastructure capacity, however current direct short range communication (DSRC) systems do not support the required data rates, and cannot always guarantee reliable transmission of safety messages. Therefore these systems need to be complemented by additional communication modalities. Recently millimeter wave (mmW) radar devices enhanced with communication functionalities (RADCOM systems) have been proposed as a solution. The problem of radar-to-radar interference still remains to be addressed however and this problem becomes more relevant since interference will not only degrade radar performance but also communication performance of RADCOM devices. The objective of this project is to study and design new medium access strategies for mmW RADCOM systems to enable coordination between road users in order to reduce mutual interference. Such strategies must result in reliable radar performance, possibly distributed, and in reliable communication, also at high mobility. In this way congestion of the road-infrastructure can be avoided and its capacity can be increased. The proposed approach is expected to facilitate cooperation among sensor of road users to prevent mutual interference and alleviate the congestion problem thus enlarging the capacity of the infrastructure. Patentable technology and standardization process are expected outcomes of this research.

  • ALECS Marie Sklodowska Curie COFUND Programme
    ALECS Marie Sklodowska Curie COFUND Programme Marie Sklodowska Curie COFUND ALECS (Advanced Learning in Evolving Critical Systems) 3rd Call for Applicants Background Globally, software-based systems are increasingly important to economic activity and to the normal functioning of our everyday lives. The scope, scale and interconnected nature of such systems are increasing rapidly, with the potential consequences of failure, security breaches or malfunction becoming a growing cause of concern. Evolving Critical Systems (ECS) that change over time ('evolving'), and strategically important to their users ('critical'), are increasingly prevalent in software development, from business-critical systems to safety-critical systems. ALECS is an innovative fellowship programme coordinated by Lero - the Irish Software Research Centre. The initiative is co-funded by the European Commission under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie programme, grant agreement number 754489, and by Science Foundation Ireland, through Lero. The aim of the programme is to provide training and career development to researchers through providing international mobility and intersectoral exposure. As a Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellowship, ALECS offers high quality professional opportunities open to researchers of any age, nationality and discipline who comply with the programme's eligibility criteria. Call for experienced researchers who have a PhD or at least 4 years equivalent research experience ALECS invites applications from candidates who possess a PhD degree, and from candidates who do not have a PhD but who have at least 4 years full-time equivalent research experience. A degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering or in a related discipline is not mandatory. Applications are open to candidates from complementary disciplines provided their proposal has received the support of an ALECS academic supervisor. All fellowships will be based in Ireland where fellows will be hosted by their ALECS academic supervisor's institution.
