The PhD-position is with the Biomedical electromagnetics research group. The focuses of this group is on the development of new and more effective medical methods and systems for diagnostics and treatment of certain illnesses. Stroke diagnostics, breast cancer detection, microwave tumor treatment and localization of epileptic brain activity are a few examples. The main activity in the development towards these applications involves mainly, signal processing methods, antenna systems design and design of measurement equipment. Construction of complete prototype systems for clinical tests is a key goal in the projects.
