Postdoctoral researcher in the Biomedical Electronics Research Group

The Biomedical Electronics Research Group at Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona is seeking candidates for a postdoctoral position to carry out research on the assessment of photonic methods for monitoring irreversible electroporation in tissues. Cardiac electroporation is now being developed as a cardiac ablation modality. Cardiac ablation is a common therapeutic option for managing arrythmias in patients not responding to antiarrhythmogenic medication. The two most common cardiac ablation modalities, radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and cryoablation have high success rates. However, both modalities are accompanied by potentially fatal complications such as, for instance, severe esophageal injury leading to an atrio-esophageal fistula. Clinical complications and technical and practical limitations of both techniques are mostly related to their thermal nature. Therefore, non-thermal alternatives are of great interest. And, in the last years, irreversible electroporation, known in the cardiac field as ‘Pulsed Field Ablation’ (PFA), has gained the attention of major medtech companies.

We have access to a novel photonic technology able to monitor changes in tissues in real time. We want to explore the use of this technology for monitoring cardiac electroporation and we want to build a solid understanding of the cardiac electroporation phenomenon and how it translates to photonic observations. Research activities will include design and participation in acute and chronic animal studies, in vitro experimentation and numerical modeling studies
