PhD Research Fellow in Metal-Organic Frameworks: a Platform for Single-Atom Catalysts

PhD Research Fellow in Metal-Organic Frameworks: a Platform for Single-Atom Catalysts

Job description

A position as PhD Research Fellow in the design, synthesis and testing of metal-organic frameworks decorated with single-atom catalysts is available in the Catalysis Section as part of the Centre for Materials Science and Nanotechnology (SMN), Department of Chemistry, University of Oslo, Norway.

No one can be appointed for more than one PhD Research Fellowship period at the University of Oslo.

The starting date is no later than October 1, 2023.

The fellowship period is 3 years.

A fourth year may be considered with a workload of 25% that may consist of teaching, supervision duties, and/or research assistance. This is dependent upon the qualification of the applicant and the current needs of the department.

Knowledge development in a changing world – Science and technology towards 2030

The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences

More about the position

The position will effectively establish a new line of work in the Catalysis Section. It is aimed at the decoration of functional metal-organic frameworks with single atoms of transition metals, and their characterisation in terms of physical and chemical properties, including catalytic activity in selected reactions.

Metal-organic frameworks are porous organic-inorganic hybrid materials with tuneable topologies and chemistries, which endows them with huge potential in catalysis. They are currently investigated as catalysts for reactions such as reduction of nitrogen oxides (de-NOx), C-H activation, C-C coupling, and CO2 conversion.

The primary focus of this project is to extend the pool of catalytically active single atoms of transition metals, which can be immobilised on functionalised metal-organic frameworks. This work will eventually lead into the development of composition-property-performance relationships for selected reactions over the synthesised materials. In order to gain deep insight into material properties, the candidate will have the opportunity of accessing advanced methodologies at large-scale facilities, such as synchrotron light and neutron sources.

We are looking for an excellent candidate holding a Master’s degree or equivalent in chemistry, materials science, or chemical engineering.

The candidate will perform the synthesis of functional metal-organic frameworks and their decoration with single atoms of transition metals and carry out extensive characterisation of these materials using X-ray diffraction and absorption, nuclear magnetic resonance and vibrational spectroscopy, electron microscopy, etc.

The candidate will also carry out catalytic testing of the synthesised materials to ultimately establish composition-property-performance relationships for selected reactions performed on them.

Hands-on, practical experience with either measurements of catalyst performance over porous materials or synthesis and characterisation of materials (ideally porous materials), or both, is desirable. As the catalyst performance will eventually be also assessed computationally, experience with such methods, e.g. density functional theory, is of advantage.

The fellowship is based in the Catalysis group at the Department of Chemistry and associated with the Centre for Materials Science and Nanotechnology.

The vision of SMN is to contribute to an increase of Norway’s production through research on materials science and nanotechnology on functional materials and ensure a level of quality that further builds the recognition of SMN as a leading centre amongst the Nordic countries, as well as internationally.

Employment at the Catalysis group will allow the successful candidate the opportunity to work in a highly cross-disciplinary field in an internationally competitive research group with a high degree of international collaboration.

Research in the Catalysis group comprises extensive international collaboration, and research visits to partners in Europe is an integrated part of PhD training and research.

Position description

Software is pervasive and often critical in our everyday life. Its production is complicated and expensive, especially for complex systems like Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). CPS are often safety-critical and rely on heterogeneous processors (e.g. CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs, DSPs), hence their engineering requires reliable and flexible methods. Domain-Specific Modelling Languages (DSML) and model-based techniques have proven to be very suitable for that. Currently, from DSMLs, executables are generated by first translating a model to a program in a high-level programming language (e.g. C++) via code generators and then compile it. Code generators are language-specific, inflexible, and not always reliable, difficult and expensive to certify, customise and maintain. The purpose of ORPHEUS is to study and formalise a systematic and precise theory for model compilation, implement it in a prototypical framework, and evaluate it through mixed-method studies on an industrial case-study. This kind of solution will maximise the profit of using model-based techniques, thus producing high-quality and safe software in a more efficient manner, and accelerate research by providing a unified common ground for researchers and practitioners. 

The PhD student will work in most parts of ORPHEUS under the supervision of senior researchers in the ORPHEUS’ research team.

Qualifications

Only those who are or have been admitted to third-cycle courses and study programmes at a higher education may be appointed to doctoral studentships. For futher information see Chapter 5 of the Higher Education Ordinance (SFS 1993:100).

To qualify as a PhD student, you should have a master’s level degree (240 ECTS) in software engineering, computer science, computer engineering, or equivalent.

The applicant is expected to have knowledge and skills in theoretical and practical software engineering (at least 60 ECTS in programming, programming languages and software engineering).

The position requires a strong motivation for research, good oral and written communication skills in English and an independent attitude..

Decisive importance is attached to personal suitability. We value the qualities that an even distribution of age and gender, as well as ethnic and cultural diversity, can contribute to the organization.

Merit

Knowledge of program analysis and program transformation/compilation is particularly advantageous.

Knowledge development in a changing world – Science and technology towards 2030

Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences

More about the position

With the semiconductor industry getting close to the inherent limits of conventional silicon technology, there is a strong interest in designing and implementing new materials that can push and move the field beyond Moore’s law. A range of different strategies show great promise, including the use of complex oxides to enhance existing, or even integrate new, functionalities.

One approach with particular appeal is the exchange of the conventional dielectric in Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor Field-Effect-Transistors (MOSFETs) with a ferroelectric material. Ferroelectric materials show spontaneous polarization due to non-centrosymmetry in their crystal symmetry. Using such materials in electronics has three important implications, all with the possibility to significantly advance the field. First, ferroelectrics are usually very good dielectrics, and can push the limits of conventional MOSFETs. Second, since ferroelectrics are spontaneously polarized and the polarization is retained over long periods of time without applying a gate voltage, MOSFETs with ferroelectrics can operate at much lower energy cost. Last, the polarization direction is stored upon removing the gate voltage, allowing unification of memory and computing in a single unit. This may open for physical manifestations of neural networks, previously only realized in virtual environments.

The integration of ferroelectric thin films in MOSFET structures, however, require exceptional control of film structural- and chemical quality. Such control can only be achieved by dynamic feedback between excellent characterization and state-of-the-art deposition technology. At UiO, we have developed a method for low-temperature direct epitaxy of functional complex oxides using Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD). This checks all the boxes for a technique for facile integration of ferroelectrics in novel transistors. Still, to what degree structure and functionality can be tuned, and with which parameters, require extensive investigation of synthesis-structure-property relations.

The PhD fellowship is focused on providing crucial and highly detailed information on structure and chemical properties of these materials down to the atomic scale, thus playing an integral part in the development of novel ferroelectric thin films for implementation in MOSFETs at UiO. This will be done combining atomically resolved Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy (STEM) imaging, Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy (EELS) and Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDXS). The PhD candidate will prepare TEM samples, carry out experiments and analyze the resulting data, making use of the excellent facilities provided by the Norwegian Centre for Transmission Electron Microscopy (NORTEM) in Oslo. The work will be carried out in close collaboration with senior researchers and students driving the ALD activity within the project. There will be opportunities for direct involvement in the ALD synthesis.

PhD Research Fellow on the impact of tree-line expansion – A threat to hydropower resources?

PhD Research Fellow on the impact of tree-line expansion – A threat to hydropower resources?

Job description

We offer a 3-year PhD Research Fellow position at the Department of Geosciences and the Center for Biogeochemistry in the Anthropocene, University of Oslo. The position will be within an interdisciplinary research project where the overall objective is to: To provide a robust estimate of how evapotranspiration (ET) and runoff will change due to advancing tree-lines caused by changes in climate and land use, and how this will affect hydropower potential.

No one can be appointed for more than one PhD Research Fellowship period at the University of Oslo.

Starting date no later than October 1, 2023. 

The fellowship period is 3 years. A fourth year may be considered with a workload of 25 % that may consist of teaching, supervision duties, and/or research assistance. This is dependent upon the qualification of the applicant and the current needs of the department.

Project description:
The Center for Biogeochemistry of the Anthropocene (CBA) focuses on feedbacks between biogeochemical process and climate across the boreal biome. The water balance (WB) of the land surface depends not only on the physical climate system and characteristics of the land surface, but also on biological feedbacks and anthropogenic land use and land cover changes (LULCC). 

The UN has established 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs). IPCC has evaluated the potential synergies and trade-offs between the sectoral portfolio of climate change mitigation options and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) (IPCC, 2018, cf. figure 4 SPM). SDG 7, Affordable and clean energy, was identified as the single SDG with the strongest synergies and with only minor unwanted trade-offs. With the need for more renewable energy sources to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve energy security, it is important to improve our understanding of how the water resources for hydropower can be affected by climate change and land use change. 

The project will combine state-of-the-art atmospheric models with advanced models for the land surface (energy exchange, hydrology, and biogeochemistry) with extensive datasets on historic land-use change, and advanced methods for measuring energy and water exchange between the terrestrial system and the atmosphere.

Knowledge development in a changing world – Science and technology towards 2030

The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences

More about the position

In this project we will use the Weather Research and Forecasting model (WRF) to simulate regional climate over Norway for selected recent and future time periods. This involves dynamically downscaling global reanalysis products (like ERA5) and future climate scenarios (based on the most recent Coupled Model Intercomparison Project, CMIP6) to produce high-resolution estimates of precipitation, temperature, humidity, wind, and radiation over Norway. More recently, WRF is coupled to a version of the land model CLM that has been augmented with a hillslope hydrology component, where sub-grid atmospheric forcing and lateral fluxes of water between sub-grid elements better represent the hydrological cycle in complex terrains. The project will also use CLM with the FATES module for vegetation, a cohort model of vegetation competition and coexistence describing the dynamical evolution of the vegetation.

A key element of the project is model validation using different sets of observations. These include a promising novel use of drone swarms in combination with detailed large-eddy simulations and eddy covariance flux measurements of ET and carbon exchange (NEE) across Norway. These methods and datasets are developed at the department of Geosciences, and the successful candidate will use the data and methods and take part in field campaigns.

The PhD candidate will include model development and model simulations, thus good programming skills are required. The group works closely with the main CLM developers at NCAR in Boulder (US). An extended stay (3-6 months) at NCAR during the PhD period will be encouraged.

Lund University welcomes applicants with diverse backgrounds and experiences. We regard gender equality and diversity as a strength and an asset.

Subject description
Soils store much more carbon (C) than the atmosphere and the living biosphere together, and microorganisms play an important role to govern whether C compounds remain in the soil, or whether they are disintegrated back to CO2. An important mechanism of long-term C storage is the physical stabilization of organic matter within the soil structure, meaning that C can be “hidden” from its decomposers in the complex matrix of soil aggregates, but the processes involved are not well understood.

We are seeking to recruit a highly motivated post-doctoral fellow for an interdisciplinary project in microbial ecology at the Department of Biology, Lund University.  The project focuses on performing experiments in microfluidic models for the physical and chemical heterogeneity simulating soil microhabitats. The project will be conducted in close collaboration with microfluidic engineers, and microspectroscopists. You will be part of an active research group at the Department of Biology https://www.biology.lu.se/research/research-groups/microbial-ecology and collaborate with engineers at the Department of Biomedical Engineering http://bme.lth.se/research-pages/nanobiotechnology-and-lab-on-a-chip/. The cross-disciplinary environment will provide the candidate with ample possibilities to learn new skills and methods ranging from biology to engineering.

Work duties
The main duties involved in a post-doctoral posistion is to conduct research. Teaching may also be included, but up to no more than 20% of working hours. The position shall include the opportunity for three weeks of training in higher education teaching and learning.

 Work duties include:

  • Design and perform soil microbial experiments in microfluidic chips
  • Design and perform experiments with soil systems
  • Culture laboratory strains of bacteria and fungi

PhD Research Fellow in High-Energy Physics and Infectious Disease Modelling

PhD Research Fellow in High-Energy Physics and Infectious Disease Modelling

Job description

Position as PhD Research Fellow in High-Energy Physics and Infectious Disease Modelling is available at the Department of Physics.

No one can be appointed for more than one PhD Research Fellowship period at the University of Oslo. Starting date no later than October 1, 2023.

The fellowship period is 3 years. A fourth year may be considered with a workload of 25 % that normally consists of teaching. This is dependent upon the qualification of the applicant and the current needs of the department.

Knowledge development in a changing world – Science and technology towards 2030

Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences

More about the position

One of the current main research directions in the Section for Theoretical Physics is on the computational aspects of high-energy physics. We are heavily involved in the development of state-of-the-art tools such as GAMBIT (gambit.hepforge.org). Searches for physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM) in realistic scenarios with many parameters is today heavily limited by the computational expense of evaluating likelihood functions that require substantial Monte Carlo simulations. A similar situation is found in the field of infectious disease modelling, where agent-based Monte Carlo models are used to model epidemics and other important public health challenges such as the spread of antibiotic resistant bacteria, at a high computational cost.

The successful applicant will join the interdisciplinary research project “Pandemics, particles and parameter (s)paces”, recently financed by the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at the University of Oslo, with the objective of meeting one of the targets of the United Nations’ sustainable development goals for public health. The project is a collaboration between members of the modelling group of the National Institute for Public Health (NIPH/FHI) and the Section for Theoretical Physics at the University of Oslo. It will focus on tackling the computational challenges common to both fields by the development of new computational tools, in particular the application of a lightweight GAMBIT library to agent based models in public health in order to make effective in silico labs for experimentation with intervention strategies, and the development of a framework for the use of continual learning regression models in both high-energy physics and public health.

Knowledge development in a changing world – Science and technology towards 2030

The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences

More about the position

With the semiconductor industry getting close to the inherent limits of conventional silicon technology, there is a strong interest in designing and implementing new materials that can push and move the field beyond Moore’s law. A range of different strategies show great promise, including the use of complex oxides to enhance existing, or even integrate new, functionalities.

The current paradigm in transistor technologies makes use of metal-oxide-semiconductor field effect transistors (MOSFETs), usually based around doped silicon and a high-k insulator. This choice of materials offer several advantages with respect to processing and cost, but there are certainly other materials that can be used to enhance functionality and revolutionize the field. This paradigm-shift becomes a necessity when scaling of silicon is no longer an option, and we are rapidly approaching this crossroad.

A variety of challenges arise when moving to other material systems, most notably the difficulty of implementing more complex materials of sufficient quality in a cost-effective way and on a low thermal budget.

At the group for Nanostructures and Functional Materials (NAFUMA) at the Department of Chemistry, UiO, we develop methods for the integration of complex oxides in electronic model systems. This is carried out using the atomic layer deposition (ALD) technique. ALD is a variant of chemical vapor deposition (CVD) where gaseous precursors are sequentially pulsed into the reactor, opening for self-limiting growth with extreme control of thin film thickness, conformality and uniformity. NAFUMA has taken a leading role in this development, and currently collaborates with several major industry players in the field.

In this PhD fellowship, the candidate will take part in the development of new functional materials that shows promise in the coming electronics paradigm based on active oxides. This can be complex oxide semiconductors, ferroelectrics, metals or super high-k dielectrics.

The candidate will have the possibility to choose their own focus area within the field, in cooperation with group seniors. Depending on the candidate’s background and preferences, the project can be designed to have various focus on synthesis and characterisation of functional properties of functional properties.

Relevant tasks may be a combination of:

  • Development of novel ALD-processes for functional complex oxides by ALD.
  • Synthesis of novel precursors for use in complex oxide ALD processes
  • In-depth structural characterization of complex oxide thin films, e.g. using x-ray diffraction techniques such as reciprocal space mapping
  • In-depth functional characterization of complex oxide thin films, e.g. using physical property measurement systems
  • Use of large facilities (synchrotrons, neutron sources)

We seek a dedicated student that wants to pave the road as they explore, guided by a research group in the forefront of the field.

Qualification requirements

The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences has a strategic ambition to be among Europe’s leading communities for research, education and innovation. Candidates for these fellowships will be selected in accordance with this, and expected to be in the upper segment of their class with respect to academic credentials.

  • Master’s degree or equivalent in chemistry, physics or materials science
  • Foreign completed degree (M.Sc.-level) corresponding to a minimum of four years in the Norwegian educational system
  • Solid understanding of structure-property relations in crystalline inorganic materials

Candidates without a Master’s degree have until 30 June, 2023 to complete the final exam.

Desired qualifications:

  • Experience with thin film deposition of inorganic materials, preferably by atomic layer deposition or chemical vapor deposition
  • Experience with structural and/or functional characterization of thin films, e.g. using XRD, XPS, TEM, PPMS, ellipsometry, AFM and/or FE-analyzers
  • Knowledge on functional complex oxides such as high-k dielectrics, ferroelectrics, ferromagnets or semiconductors

Doctoral student in Medical Science – Post-stroke neurodegeneration

Ref PAR 2023/34

The University of Gothenburg tackles society’s challenges with diverse knowledge. 56 000 students and 6 600 employees make the university a large and inspiring place to work and study. Strong research and attractive study programmes attract scientists and students from around the world. With new knowledge and new perspectives, the University contributes to a better future.

Doctoral position in Medical Science

Project title: Targeting secondary neurodegeneration to enhance recovery after stroke 

The Department of Physiology is located at the Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology at the Faculty of Medicine at Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg. The Department conducts research within the area of physiology. Several projects involve a close collaboration with the Sahlgrenska University Hospital. We offer undergraduate courses as parts of study programs in Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Speech and language pathology, Dental hygiene, Occupational therapy, Physiotherapy and the bachelor program of Cognitive Science. The research groups at the Department represent a broad range of research areas within the field of physiology.

General information about being a doctoral student at the University of Gothenburg can be found on the university’s doctoral student pages https://medarbetarportalen.gu.se/doktorand/?languageId=100001&skipSSOCheck=true    

Duties   

The PhD education in Medical Science comprises carrying out a scientific project and completing at least 30 credits of courses at third-cycle level. The doctoral student must also write a scientific compilation thesis or monograph corresponding to at least 120 credits. For more information about third-cycle studies at Sahlgrenska Academy, see https://www.gu.se/en/sahlgrenska-akademin/doctoral-studies

Project: Our goal is to enhance recovery after stroke. Stroke affects about 12 million people worldwide annually. Of the approximately 6 million survivors, about 50% suffer from long-lasting or permanent disability. No efficient therapy is currently available, except for the removal of the occluding blood clot during the first hours after ischemic stroke. Loss of function after stroke is due to cell death in the infarcted tissue, cell dysfunction in the peri-infarct region, as well as dysfunction and neurodegeneration in remote brain areas. Plasticity responses in spared brain regions are a major contributor to functional recovery, while secondary neurodegeneration in remote regions is associated with depression and impedes the long-term outcome after stroke. The complement system is part of the immune response that protects the host against pathogenic bacteria but has also other important functions. We showed that complement stimulates brain plasticity and can protect brain cells against ischemia and some types of neurodegeneration. Our results show that treatment with a specific complement peptide accelerates functional recovery after stroke.

Building on highly supportive preliminary data, this project will use experimental models of stroke in combination with genetic and pharmacological manipulation of the complement system, neuroimaging, state-of-the-art transcriptomics and bioinformatics to determine the cellular and molecular mechanisms controlling brain tissue responses to ischemia and assesses the feasibility of pharmacological enhancement of functional recovery after stroke. The successful candidate will be part of a dynamic international research team with expertise in biochemistry, neurobiology, cell biology, immunology and neurology. The project will benefit from multidisciplinary national and international collaborations.

We seek a highly motivated candidate with very well documented experience in molecular and cellular biology laboratory work. It is desirable that the candidate has medical, clinical or biological background and a strong interest in neuroscience and in the understanding of the molecular mechanisms of human diseases.

PhD scholarship in Clinical Assessments of Spatial Hearing for Hearing-Aid and Cochlear-Implant Rehabilitation – DTU Health Tech

Are you interested in combining engineering and audiology to help create better healthcare for individuals with hearing impairment? The Hearing Systems Section at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), together with the Ear, Nose, and Throat and Audiology Department at Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen University Hospital, seeks a qualified candidate for a 3-year PhD position. This PhD project focuses on clinical assessments of spatial hearing in patients with non-typical hearing loss (e.g., single-sided deafness or asymmetric hearing loss). The aim is to supplement existing diagnostic tools with more ecologically valid estimates of hearing abilities and hearing device outcomes to better inform decisions about cochlear implant (CI) candidacy, as well as to facilitate more effective counselling and expectation management before and after rehabilitation.

It has been argued that, through the use of virtual sound environments, we can provide better assessments of hearing ability and hearing device benefit since the measurements obtained in these environments more accurately reflect the real world. However, the estimates of performance with these more ecologically valid tests and traditional tests are typically correlated, such that the clinical value of such tests remains unclear. The real value of new, more ecologically valid tests lies in their potential ability to assess aspects of hearing that are not captured with traditional diagnostic methods. Building such evidence is the primary aim of the current project.

As a PhD student you will be joining a cross-disciplinary research team that is embedded inside of the Copenhagen Hearing and Balance Centre, which is a center at Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen University Hospital, dedicated to combining daily treatment of hearing and balance with world-class research through collaborations with the medico-technical industry and academic universities such as the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). As part of this project, you will be based at the hospital, where you will be integrated with the clinical audiological team. You will additionally be linked with the Hearing Systems Section at DTU Health Tech, and as such, be part of an internationally leading research group, who focuses on a range of hearing-related topics, including auditory signal processing and perception, computational auditory modelling, audiology, acoustics, and hearing aid and cochlear implant signal processing. CHBC and DTU Hearing Systems house outstanding facilities for hearing research in this direction, including a 64-channel loudspeaker array in an anechoic chamber at DTU and a 41-channel loudspeaker array embedded into an acoustically shielded clinical room at CHBC, as well as fully equipped psychoacoustic and communication labs at both DTU and CHBC.

Responsibilities and tasks
You will work with virtual sound environments to develop clinical protocols for assessing spatial hearing and hearing device benefit in a more ecologically valid way. You will evaluate whether, and to what extent, spatial hearing can be incorporated into clinical practice to solve existing clinical problems for clinicians by, for example, shadowing patients through their rehabilitation journey, conducting smaller-scale listener studies with individuals with hearing impairment, and conducting larger-scale evaluations of clinical protocols that aim at providing better patient experience and overall outcomes. You will interface with clinicians and surgeons to define clinically relevant protocols, coordinate patient recruitment, administer both novel and traditional diagnostic tests, analyze the results, and communicate the outcomes scientifically.

Qualifications
Candidates should have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree. The candidate should be very well-versed in acoustics, hearing, and/or audiology and have practical experience with designing experiments and conducting research. The ideal candidate should be well-versed in Matlab, or otherwise have a willingness and determination to learn, and have clinical experience, or a willingness and determination to learn about clinical practice.

The candidate should be curious about hearing healthcare, and importantly, be passionate about bridging engineering and audiology through translational research. Experience within virtual sound environments, hearing-in-noise testing, or clinical research is a plus. The candidate should enjoy working in a cross-disciplinary research field, be able to work independently, and communicate research in English. An ability to communicate in Danish is advantageous, but not a requirement.

Approval and Enrolment
The scholarship for the PhD degree is subject to academic approval, and the candidate will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes at DTU. For information about our enrolment requirements and the general planning of the PhD study programme, please see DTU’s rules for the PhD education.

Doctoral position in Medical Science

Project title: Characterization of Neuroinflammation Biomarkers of Alzheimer’s disease

The Department of Psychiatry and Neurochemistry is located at the Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology at the Faculty of Medicine at Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg. At the Department research is conducted on human behaviour, neuropsychiatric processes as well as psychiatric treatment and diagnosis in close collaboration with Västra Götaland region and a number of international partners. We participate in the undergraduate programmes in Medicine and within The National Research School in Psychiatry/Southwest Sweden. At the Department there are some 15 research groups and four research centers.

General information about being a doctoral student at the University of Gothenburg can be found on the university’s doctoral student pages https://medarbetarportalen.gu.se/doktorand/?languageId=100001&skipSSOCheck=true    

Duties   

The PhD education in Medical Science comprises carrying out a scientific project and completing at least 30 credits of courses at third-cycle level. The doctoral student must also write a scientific compilation thesis or monograph corresponding to at least 120 credits. For more information about third-cycle studies at Sahlgrenska Academy, see https://www.gu.se/en/sahlgrenska-akademin/doctoral-studies

Project: Alzheimer’s disease (AD) has been defined as a pathophysiological process characterized by the progressive accumulation of protein aggregates (amyloid and tau) that ultimately lead to neuronal injury. Throughout this pathophysiological process, an intricate and complex metabolic network becomes altered, affecting different biological pathways that lead to the syndromic onset observed in AD patients. Inflammatory cascades have been reported multiple times to be altered in AD and is considered by many as one of the key players driving disease progression. Thus, there is no doubt regarding the relevance of the immune response to AD pathology progression. However, what is far from being consensual is the role of the immune system in this process: some advocate supporting the beneficial attempt of the immune system in reinstating original brain status, and some support the idea that the triggered inflammatory process turns out to worsen brain injury. Nevertheless, the Janus face of the immune response –and its possible biphasic and opposite effects– still needs to be deciphered. Thus, the exact mechanisms and functions of neuroinflammatory responses in AD remain unanswered. In order to address this gap, this proposal will characterize immune-related proteins in blood, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and in the brain to identify blood biomarkers of neuroinflammation in the AD spectrum and provide knowledge to the development of new assays. Neuroinflammation biomarkers may indicate initial brain injuries and/or individuals with increased propensity or odds to disease progression, being also potential biomarkers candidates for use in clinical trials. 

The research group has several English-speaking people and therefore good knowledge of English, in both speech and writing, is necessary. This position will suit someone with good communication skills, detailed oriented, organized and who is also flexible, responsible and has personal drive. The person needs to be careful and structured.

Education at third-cycle level comprises four years of full-time study, and leads to a doctoral degree.  As part of your employment as a doctoral student, you may have departmental duties corresponding to up to 20 % of full-time employment, distributed throughout your study period. Departmental duties usually consist of teaching at first- and second-cycle levels, but may also include research and administration.    

Eligibility   

Education at third-cycle level requires general eligibility and specific eligibility as set out in the general syllabus for the subject.  

The general eligibility requirements for education at third-cycle level are:    
1. having completed a degree at second-cycle level, or
2. the fulfilment of course requirements totalling at least 240 credits, of which at least 60 credits must be at second-cycle level, or  
3. the acquisition of equivalent knowledge in some other way, either in Sweden or abroad.
