Associate Professor of Medical Electronics
The experts, Professors Robert Plonsey and Åke Öberg have given
their statement on the applicants of the position of Associate Professor of
Medical Electronics at the Ragnar Granit Institute. They divided the candidates
to three categories, where the first category included the top three names
whom they evaluated in more detail. The candidates in the categories
two and three are listed in alphabetical order.
The experts stated, that the top three are in this order:
- Hannu Eskola
- Jukka Lekkala and
- Juha Nousiainen.
Eskola and Lekkala were quite close to each other in their competence, Nousiainen being more behind,
mainly because of his younger age.
The applicants evaluated to the category two are:
The applicants evaluated to the category three are:
- Ph.D. Jari Hyttinen
- Ph.D. Harri Sievänen
- Ph.D. Johannes Struijk
- Ph.D. Zbigniew Dunajski
- Ph.D. Ants Meister
- Lic.Tech. Petri Pommelin
- Lic.Tech. Ilpo Reitmaa
- Ph.D. Ping-Ya Zhao
- Ph.D. Simon Walker
- Lic.Techn. Maini Williams
- Ph.D. Zhenyao Xu
- Ph.D. Juha Ylitalo
(The Finnish applicant who wanted to remain anonymous was evaluated to the category three.)
The candidates have the opportunity to give their demonstration lecture
to the Teaching and Education Council on 28th November. Hannu Eskola and

The 10th Nordic-Baltic Conference on
Ragnar Granit Institute will host the 10th Nordic Meeting on
Biomedical Engineering. Because of the changing political situation
in the Northern Europe the conference will be called The 10th Nordic-Baltic
Conference on Biomedical Engineering and additionally to the Nordic Countries
the other countries boarding the Baltic Sea, namely Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania,
Poland and Germany are invited to serve as primary participating countries.
The Ragnar Granit Institute has actively encouraged the Baltic States
to establish national societies of biomedical engineering. All these countries
have already established or decided to establish such. This will make it possible
for them to participate the meeting with full rights.
Characteristic for this conference is that all its committees, i.e. the
Advisory Committee, the Scientific Committee and the Organizing Committee
have members from all the active participating countries and all over the World.
In this way we emphasize the international character of the conference.
Please find more information on the conference from the attached First Announcement.

distinguished teachers. The first in this series will be given by Professor Robert Plonsey
in 14.-16.11.1994 under the title: "Source-field Relationships for Excitable Tissue".
The intensive course consists of four 60 min lectures and a discussion each day.
It is accompanied by a 100 page lecturing material prepared for this purpose.
3rd Ragnar Granit Symposium
The 3rd Ragnar Granit Symposium will be arranged on 17.-18.11.1995
under the title: "Modelling and Detection of the Electric and Magnetic Field of the Heart".
Lecturers of this symposium will be both Finnish and interna tional well recognized scientists.
The sympo sium is interdisciplinary and is intended for both engineers and physicians.
Assistant of Biomedical Engineering
Lic.Tech. Jari Hyttinen has been appointed to the post of Assistant of
Biomedical Engineer ing for a term of five years starting on 1.7.1994.
Doctoral Examination of Jari Hyttinen
Lic.Techn. Jari Hyttinen will defend his doctoral thesis on Saturday,
