Job description

What you are going to do
Your work will be embedded in a European project (PARADE) aiming at providing a breakthrough in design and production of patient-specific prostheses for the distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) in the wrist. Our approach to arrive at an optimal prosthesis design is based on 3D and 4D CT-imaging, motion analysis of the lower arm and wrist and subsequent production and surgical application in patients. Your specific tasks in the project are related to imaging-based design and evaluation of the prostheses.
