The Insigneo Institute is looking to appoint a Post-doctoral Research Associate in Computational Spine Biomechanics to work on the recently awarded Horizon Europe Project, METASTRA - Computer-aided effective stratification of oncologic patients with vertebral metastases for personalized treatment through robust and validated numerical tools. The project strives to provide a combination of models biomechanically validated and demonstrated in relevant clinical environments that will be incorporated in a clinical decision support system.

Working with Professor Damien Lacroix and Dr. Enrico Dall’Ara you will work to advance the modelling of patients with vertebral metastases for the prevention of fractures to reliably stratify patients based on their fracture risk.

We are seeking candidates with an excellent PhD in biomechanics (or a related discipline). A solid knowledge of finite element modelling, expertise in using finite element software with high level of sophistication (e.g. use of user-subroutines in Abaqus, Ansys) and experience of working as a team member to collaborate, co-operate and participate with others to achieve common objectives and to share experience and ideas is essential.
