Bolsas de empleo:

Institución:DTIC - Universitat Pompeu Fabra
This position is to participate in a 6-month research
project at the Department of Information & Communication
Technologies (DTIC) of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF), Barcelona,(

UPF is ranked as the most productive university in Spain in terms of research outcome and attraction of funding (142 European FP7 projects, 19 ERC Grants - being over 50% of the conducted at DTIC-UPF).

Part of the work will be done in the AntennaLab research group labs in Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Barcelona.

The project will be conducted in the PhySense research group (, supervised by Dr. Marta Guardiola. PhySense focuses on integrating engineering/physics knowledge with physiology in order to provide an interdisciplinary research environment, working closely together with internationally known academic and clinical centres. This is approached by integrating and improving information acquisition, handling and processing techniques, combined with basic knowledge on
pathophysiology, in order to advance clinical sciences.

The candidates should have a BEng or preferentially MSc, mainly in engineering, physics or computer science, strong
background on antenna design and measurement, good
computer programming skills (Matlab), and preferentially
experience in microwave imaging. Fluency in English is highly recommended.

Llavor project: MicroWave imaging device for ENDOscopic explorations and interventions (MiWEndo)

Llavor is 6-month program financed by Secretaria d'Universitats i Recerca, Departament d'Economia i Coneixement from the Generalitat de Catalunya and co-financed by FEDER. It is aimed to finance innovative projects that are in the initial stages in the level of technological maturity for the enhancement of knowledge with potential to join the productive sector.

MiWEndo is aimed to valorize and translate research on microwave imaging to the clinic and the industry. Microwave
imaging is one of the most promising emerging imaging methods because is low-cost, portable and safe. One of the most attractive features of microwave technology for clinical applications is its relatively low entrance barriers with comparison to other medical imaging modalities.

The proposed project involves different stages of the technology pipeline, including knowledge/technology protection, pre-prototype design, initial manufacturing and pre-clinical testing. The proposed device will be a small endoscope head composed by several radio frequency (RF) sensors that will allow to form cross-sectional both anatomical and functional images of the interior of the gastro-intestinal tract as the endoscope travels along it. This work will be part of a long-standing close collaboration with the Hospital Clínic i Provincial de Barcelona (HCPB) to assure clinically relevant research. Furthermore, this work will be in connection with other scientific and clinical partners with strong expertise on antennas and propagation such as AntennaLab (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya).
