IIT is opening a Postdoctoral position to work with Prof Sauro Succi within the “Computational Medicine” Research Line in Rome.
The scientific activities will be centered upon the following theme:
Development and optimization, both on serial and highly parallel computers, of computer programs for the multiscale simulation of complex flows of direct relevance to the microfluidic design mesoscale porous materials. Development of programming interfaces and multi-resolution code for the coupling between fluid and particle methods for the numerical simulation of the aforementioned problems.
Professional requirement to apply for the position:
IIT was established in 2003 and successfully created the large scale infrastructure in Genova, a network of 10 state of the art laboratories countrywide, recruited an international staff of about 1100 people from more than 50 countries. IIT's research endeavour focuses on high-tech and innovation, representing the forefront of technology with possible application from medicine to industry, computer science, robotics, life sciences and nanobiotechnologies.
The Research Line “Computational Medicine” will be centered about the computational modeling of complex systems at the interface between physics and biology, with special focus on their medical and clinical applications. In particular, we deal with the computational design of new materials for biomedical and life-science applications, such as tissue engineering, targeted drug delivery, as well as the modeling of complex biological and physiological processes, such as protein aggregation and hemostasis.
The above phenomena are governed by the concurrent and non-linear interaction of multiple physico-chemical mechanisms acting across a broad range of scales, from the molecular level, all the way up to the physiological one.
The quantitative analysis of such multiscale and multilevel processes commands the resort to advanced computational methods based on highly innovative combinations of atomistic, mesoscale and macroscopic modeling techniques. The ultimate grand-goal of the research line is the development of a hierarchically structured computational approach to precision medicine, based on the fundamentals of statistical physics.
