The primary objective of the Research Training
Network is to promote training-through-research, especially of young researchers
at the pre-doctoral and post-doctoral level.
The following table illustrates the breakdown
of these positions between the teams of the network (The full address of
the team can be found in the section About
Us). More informations can be obtained clicking the link to the specific
Young researchers to be financed by the contract
As mentioned in the Research Workplan, the Network is characterized by a strong degree of multidisciplinarity and will develop mathematical models at all scales making use of a wide variety of theoretical tools from a range of disciplines (e.g., continuum mechanics, kinetic theory, stochastic processes, system theory, compartmental models, multiphase systems) and developing different mathematical tools to obtain both qualitative and quantitative results. For this reason and for the training objective, usually the applicants are not required to be expert of a particular field or of a particular method.
However, the following table which indicates the
fields of expertise of each team with respect to the mathematical approaches
and the different length scales involved in the description of tumour growth,
be helpful to identify the type of research each unit is going to develop.
