Project Description

The GAUS ultrasound team is looking for a master's or PhD candidate around issues related to the following fields of application:

- Multi-physics numerical simulation (FEM) for the design of new generations of ultrasonic probes;
- Signal processing and embedded electronics for medical imaging.

We are looking for a wide variety of profiles who may have a strong taste or expertise in one or more of the following areas:

- Acoustics and vibrations (theoretical);
- Digital signal processing and simulation (MATLAB);
- Multi-physics system modeling (COMSOL);
- Mechanical physics and wave propagation in general;
- Micromachining and transducer assembly.

The student will be integrated into the GAUS ultrasound team, which includes 3 professors and an infrastructure unique in Canada (3D scanning vibrometer, ultrasound imaging systems, rapid prototyping, air-coupled probes). Stimulating environment guaranteed!
