CALL FOR RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP

 

 

University of Coimbra opens a call for a postdoctoral fellowship, in the framework of the project “Multi-Cam Capsule Endoscopy Imagery: 3d Capsule Location and Detection of Abnormalities” reference: POCI-01-0145-FEDER-028960), financed by national funds through FCT/MCTES and by FEDER through COMPETE 2020 – Programa Operacional Competitividade e Internacionalização in the following conditions:

 

Scientific area: Image Processing, Computational Mathematics, Imaging Sciences and Scientific Calculus.

 

Skills/Qualifications/Admission requirements:

PhD in mathematics, computational sciences or engineering.

The recipient of the fellowship must cumulatively meet the requirements provided for in paragraph 3 of article 7 of the RBIFCT:

a) The doctoral degree obtained in the 3 years prior to the date of submission of the application;

b) Investigation be carried out in a host organization other than that in which the degree was obtained;

c) Research activities do not require post-doctoral experience;

d) The research activities have a development and execution term equal to or less than three years;

e) The fellowship holder does not exceed, with the conclusion of the fellowship contract in question, including possible renewals, an accumulated period of three years in this type of fellowship, consecutive or interpolated.

For the assessment of paragraph e) it is important the candidate(s) verifies(y)

Work plan/ Objectives: Capsule endoscopy is a non-invasive medical technology designed for the “in vivo” and pain-free inspection of the interior of the gastrointestinal tract. It is a particularly important method for the examination of the small intestine, since this organ is not easily analyzed by conventional techniques. One of the difficulties of this diagnostic technique is the impossibility of knowing the precise location of the capsule when an abnormality is detected. This project aims to develop solutions to determine the location of the capsule in the gastrointestinal tract, as well as the automatic detection of medically relevant abnormalities. The project will focus on the use of multi-camera capsules, because the existence of multiple cameras brings significant advantages for both localization and detection of abnormalities.

The team of the project is multidisciplinary and involves mathematicians, electrical and computer engineers and gastroenterologists.

The focus of the research is on imaging sciences and scientific computing. It involves image processing, image analysis, partial differential equations, numerical analysis, optimization, visualization, and inverse problems in imaging, with applications in medicine.

 

Regime: The attribution of the fellowship does not generate or entitle a relation of a legal-labour nature, and the fellowship is undertaken in an exclusive dedication regime. The fellowship holder is awarded the Fellowship Statute of the UC, in its current wording, according to the Research Fellowship Holder Statute , and according to the Regulation for Research Fellowships of the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, I.P., both in their current wording.

 

Location: Department of Mathematics of the Faculty of Sciences and Technology at the University of Coimbra.

 

Duration: 7 months.

 

Renewal: Possibility of renewal if the project is extended.

 

Scientific orientation: Prof. Isabel Maria Narra de Figueiredo.

 

Financial conditions: The amount of the fellowship is € 1.646,00 corresponding to the monthly compensation stipulated in the FCT table (https://www.fct.pt/apoios/bolsas/valores.phtml.en), plus social security (Seguro Social Voluntário, first level contributions), as well as a personal accidents insurance. The payment will be made by bank transfer. This amount will not be increased during the entire period of the fellowship duration.

 

Selection methods: Curriculum evaluation (70%) and interview (30%)

A pre-selection of candidates will be made, excluding those who, according to the evaluation of the jury, have not obtained 75% of the weighted average of the Curriculum Evaluation criteria .

 

Selection criteria:

  • Curricular evaluation

Curriculum vitae merit: 40%;

Suitability of the candidate’s scientific profile to the project’s scientific activity: 60%.

  • Interview evaluation

Academic and scientific merit of the candidate: 70%;

Adaptation to the project's scientific activity: 30%.

.

 

Jury responsible for selection: Prof. Isabel Maria Narra de Figueiredo, Prof. Carlos Manuel Franco Leal and Dr. Luís Miguel Dias Pinto..
