EMTensor GmbH (www.emtensor.com) is a MedTech start-up developing a novel brain imaging modality utilizing electromagnetic waves in the low microwave spectrum. We believe this technology has the potential to revolutionize stroke assessment as well as monitoring of brain disorders.

We have an immediate opening for an experienced Mathematical Physicist. In this position, you will develop algorithms and apply numerical methods to solve 3D vector and scalar electromagnetic wave problems in inhomogenous media. The successful candidate will have a PhD in a relevant field, and have a track record of developing electromagnetics solvers. This position is a full-time, in-person position at our Vienna, Austria, office.

Role and responsibilities:

  • Architect novel numerical solvers for 3D electromagnetic wave problems in application to tomographic imaging of the human brain.
  • Implement and optimize algorithms in programming languages like Python, C++, ensuring scalability, robustness, efficiency, and maintainability.
  • Conduct comprehensive testing and validation of algorithms using real-world data, iterating as needed to improve accuracy and performance.
  • Collaborate with the engineering team to seamlessly integrate developed algorithms into system architecture.
  • Participate in code reviews and provide constructive feedback to team members to maintain code quality and consistency.
  • Proactively troubleshoot and address issues related to algorithm performance and integration.
  • Support the experimental and test activities in the lab and at clinical sites.
  • Take part in data collection and documentation for regulatory submissions of imaging software products.
  • Follow the requirements of EMTensor’s Quality Management System.

Essential Qualifications and experiences:

  • PhD and 5 years of experience in numerical methods in electromagnetics. Candidates with an MS and 10 years of experience possessing an exceptional track record will also be considered.
  • Experience in the development of iterative and/or inverse solvers for 3D electromagnetics problems
  • Experience in algorithm optimization
  • Hands-on experience and strong practical skills in coding, debugging and documentation of software products related to numerical methods, especially using languages such as Python and/or C++.
  • Ability to lead a team of math physicists
  • Interpersonal skills and abilities to communicate and work in a team environment across all levels of the organization.
  • Strong basics in numerical methods to solve Maxwell’s equations in 3D.
  • Experience in inverse problem of diffraction tomography.
  • Knowledge of code parallelization and the use of in-cloud computing.
  • Experience in commercial electromagnetic simulation tools such as HFSS, CST.
  • Experience in AI for imaging processing.
  • Understanding FDA and EU MDR quality and regulatory standards.

Compensation is commensurate with the experience.
