Duties: In Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) the contrast is excellent but the resolution is low. In order to improve the resolution EIT is combined with other devices (such as ultra sound) into new tomographic modalities that utilize the coupling between two physical phenomena. After certain post-processing of the boundary data such methods provide interior data, which is used for the impedance reconstruction. These new hybrid models raise a range of mathematical questions and bring new computational challenges; The postdoc will focus on the theory related to the problem formulations and the inversion methods. In addition numerical implementations of the inversion methods will be developed. The goal is to obtain new insight into the use of hybrid data in impedance tomography
Minimum Requirements: Candidates should have a PhD degree or equivalent; Preference will be given to candidates that have a documented research experience in Applied Mathematics in particular within PDE modeling, mathematical methods and computational algorithms for tomography or PDEs. A strong background in nonlinear inverse problems and functional analysis is beneficial

Duties: PhD project theme: Optimal safety lead times for CTO manufacturing. In order to cope with throughput time uncertainty in assembly processes, safety lead times are used to absorb unexpected delays. However, if no delays occur, then finished (sub)assemblies wait before they are further assembled or shipped to a customer. Thus we must trade-off costs of being late against costs of being early. We aim to develop optimal policies that minimize the sum of lateness and earliness costs. We start from existing results for serial CTO supply chains and aim to generalize these results to general CTO supply networks

Duties: We have proposed in a novel mixture of locally-linear regression model that unifies regression and dimensionality reduction into a common framework. The probabilistic formulation that we have derived may be seen as a latent-variable augmentation of regression. The approach compares favorably to a number of existing regression techniques and was apply in particular to the retrieval of Mars surface physical properties from hyperspectral images. For application to such image data, an extension have been proposed in where a discrete Markov model is used to create dependencies between neighbouring linear regressions
Minimum Requirements: We look for candidates strongly motivated by challenging research topics. The applicant should have good background in statistics, signal and image processing and computer science (good programming skills).

Duration: 3 y        Workload: 100%
Duties: The research theme for this project is linked to mathematical modelling of erythrocyte and haemoglobin regulation by synthetic EPO injection in patients under dialysis. These latter suffer indeed from kidney dysfunction and so cannot self-produce EPO anymore. The objective here is to offer a new therapeutic protocol by optimising both quantity and frequency of synthetic EPO injections in the body to supply its kidney deficiency. This protocol will be designed thanks to mathematical studies of deterministic models of red blood cell production and control of regulation of this production through EPO injection (represented here by impulsion)
Minimum Requirements: The candidate for this thesis project will have to show some expertise in age structured PDEs and delay ODEs analysis, an ability to write program codes to simulate the solutions to the problem, estimate parameters and optimise them to get the best protocol therapeutic protocol adapted to clinical data
