Job description

The Cardiovascular & Respiratory Physiology (CRPH) group offers a PhD position where you will play a central role in working closely together with partners from clinical healthcare and biomedical industry. Together with and for patients, we will work towards a clinically suitable, synchronized multiple-parameter acquisition system including the development of automated signal analysis of large quantities of patient data acquired in a domestic setting.
As PhD student on this project, you will be a leading figure to manage the prospective clinical trial in COPD patients assisted with home mechanical ventilation. Your role in this project will qualify you as a medical translational expert in respiratory physiology and mechanical ventilatory support.
The project is financed by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) in the domain Applied and Engineering Sciences (TTW) and is entitled 'Improving chronic nocturnal noninvasive ventilation in COPD patients: a multimodality approach' (NOCTIVENT).
You will be appointed as member of the CRPH group, which is part of the Faculty of Science and Technology (TNW) and embedded in the Translational Physiology cluster of the TechMed Centre. Together with our clinical partners we strive to develop innovative, practical solutions for daily care working together with the biomedical industry. This specific project is performed in close collaboration with the Center for Home Mechanical Ventilation of the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG).
