Research Fellow, Electroporation High-voltage Pulse Generator Development, Electrical & Electronic Engineering, College Of Science And NUI

National University of Ireland,Galway€56,369 - €58,004 per year

Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for a full-time fixed term position as a Research Fellow in Electroporation High-Voltage Pulse Generator Development with Electrical & Electronic Engineering at the National University of Ireland, Galway. The position is available from 1st March 2022 until 31st October 2024. This position is funded by the Disruptive Technologies Innovation Fund (DTIF) Programme under the ENACT project (ENdoscopic outpAtient Cancer Treatment platform). The ENACT consortium, led by Mirai Medical and comprising of Advanced Energy, National University of Ireland Galway (NUIG) and Trinity College Dublin (TCD) will bring to market a novel platform that delivers electrical pulses to tumours, displacing traditional therapies, dramatically improving outcomes for cancer patients whilst addressing 10 of the 17 United Nations sustainable development goals (SDG’s) by 2030. Existing electroporation generators designed for use in the treatment of cancer are large, expensive and have limited configurability for electrode designs. This project aims to address a gap in the market for an electroporation generator which can deliver high frequency reversible (RE) and irreversible (IRE) electroporation pulses for a wide range of electrode designs to accommodate different cancer indications. Power technologies and delivery systems will be researched and developed to achieve the extremely challenging rise times, switching frequencies and high voltages into a resistive tumour tissue impedance. Further complexity will be added by the target specification of variable voltage, variable pulse rate, variable pulse width and pulse repeatability, which is desired in order to enable a broad range of applications and treatments from the same modular power solution. The post-holder will lead the development of new power electronics solutions to achieve required electroporation pulse generator specifications. They will collaborate closely with industry partners on the industrial design, including design for manufacture and test, while ensuring adherence to relevant standards and regulations. They will also collaborate with clinical partners in supporting protocol development and pre-clinical testing. Finally, they will be involved in project management, communication and dissemination activities associated with the technical tasks. The post-holder will be based in the Power Electronics Research Centre in Electrical & Electronic Engineering at NUI Galway. The Power Electronics Research Centre is based in a 60 m² facility in the Alice Perry Engineering Building at NUI Galway. The aim of the Centre is to foster links with industry by transferring technology from a strong research base in the University to the wider community. Job Description: The successful candidate will lead the development of new power electronics solutions to achieve required electroporation pulse generator specifications, including evaluating suitable new semiconductor and circuit topologies based on detailed circuit simulations; prototype components design, build and bench test; and system level bench testing to produce basic functionality data for the new electroporation generator and electrodes. They will collaborate closely with an industry partner on the generator industrial design (including PCB design and BOM), pre-certification of EMC/EMI (60601-1-2) and electrical safety (60601-1) to mitigate risk. They will also collaborate with clinical partners in supporting protocol development and pre-clinical testing. Finally, the post-holder will also take responsibility for project management, meeting appropriate milestones, timelines and deliverables, and for dissemination activities associated with the technical tasks. S/he will also support a team of postgraduate researchers working on a range of different projects in power electronics, with different technical requirements, and will be expected to contribute to the development of the host laboratory’s ongoing research programme.
