Federico Formenti

We are seeking an enthusiastic, self-motivated postdoctoral scientist to join the Respiratory physiology and medicine group, collaborating with Dr Federico Formenti. The successful candidate is expected to excel at critical thinking, be a quick learner for new analytical approaches, and capable of applying or developing novel computational methods for solving complex problems. Candidates must have a doctoral degree (PhD or MD), an excellent publication record and great communication skills.

The highly multidisciplinary research will focus on the measurement of arterial partial pressure of oxygen as an index of overall ventilation and perfusion in the mechanically ventilated lung. This continuous oxygen monitoring performed with a novel fibre optic sensor affords the real time study of dynamic cardiopulmonary physiology, providing detailed information on pulmonary gas exchange. Cardiopulmonary physiology will be investigated simultaneously with dual-energy computed tomography, with the aim of elucidating the associations between mechanical ventilation and arterial oxygenation in a model of acute lung injury.

This is a full-time post offered on a fixed-term contract for 1 year.

The selection process will include a profile evaluation based on application, a presentation and a panel interview.
