Development and implementation of control algorithms

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The aim of this research project is to develop and implement control algorithms for some of the applications that will be of interest for the laboratory. The main one concerns the development and validation (both in silico , that is, through the use of mathematical models, both in vivo, that is, through experiments on real patients ), of a control system in closed loop ( the so-called " artificial pancreas " ) for the therapy of diabetes type. The latest clinical trials, but obtained very promising results, have highlighted a number of shortcomings in the design and tuning of the controller to be overcome in future releases .

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
