LINKÖPING UNIVERSITY
Hereby advertises a position as

PhD student in Behavioral Genetics
formally based at the Biology department, IFM

Duties
As a PhD student you will primarily devote yourself to your research. As a PhD student you are limited to work with education and administration up to 20 percent of full time.

Project
Many aspects of animal behaviour differ consistently between individuals and this has given rise to the growing field of animal personality. However, this does not mean that the behaviour of a given individual is readily predictable, because while some individuals show low levels of variation around their behavioural mean, others show high levels of variation.

Comparisons between individuals in stress research often rely on single measurements of phenotypic traits, which is potentially problematic since variation in trait predictability between individuals can render single measurements of labile traits such as behaviour unreliable as indicators of stress.

Using a combination of large-scale genetical genomics analysis you will determine the genetic architecture underlying variation in behavioural predictability (within-individual variation) across a range of anxiety related behaviors, as well as the mechanisms underlying their effect and correlate these predictability genes with effects of prenatal stress, to see if individuals with genes that cause low or high trait predictability are more or less sensitive to environmental disturbance.

You will work within the group of Research Fellow Rie Henriksen, at the Biology department at Linköping University. The research of Dr. Henriksen focusses on studying the genetics underlying variation in behavior and brain composition as well as sensitivity to early life stress using the chickens as a model species. 

Qualifications
Qualified to PhD studentships are only those who are or have been admitted to graduate studies.

You must hold a master degree (or equivalent) in biology, genetics, behavioral ecology, or other relevant fields. Courses on advanced level in ethology, genetics or neurobiology are considered a merit, as is experience with scientific work with chickens or other bird species.

Appointment time
The appointment will be until further notice for a maximum of one year at a time. A doctoral student may not be employed during a period exceeding eight years. The total time of appointment must not exceed the equivalent of four years´ full time research training.

Duties and Qualifications
As a PhD student you will primarily devote yourself to your research. As a PhD student you are limited to work with education and administration up to 20 percent of full time.

The student(s) will carry out research directed by Hector Geffner, a Guest WASP Professor at LiU and recipient of an Advanced ERC Grant on Representation Learning for Planning.

The research is focused on a problem that is at the heart of the current split in AI between data-based learners and model-based reasoners: the problem of learning symbolic representations from raw perceptions. In our case, first order symbolic representations, involving objects and relations, are to be learned from scratch for planning and generalized planning. Other dimensions of representation learning to be pursued include representation grounding, transfer, composition, and scaffolding.

As an illustration, deep reinforcement learning methods became popular in AI when they were used to learn to play the Atari video games directly from images and scores by producing effective but opaque behavioral boxes. The idea of representation learning for planning is to learn meaningful first-order models based on objects and relations, from the same data, and to use them to generate meaningful and explainable behavior.

We are seeking highly motivated doctoral students eager to make a difference in these problems, with some background in areas such as machine learning, planning, logic and knowledge representation, combinatorial optimization and SAT.

Qualified to PhD studentships are only those who are or have been admitted to graduate studies. Good oral and written skills in English are required.

Ideal candidates should be able to do or will learn to do: theoretical and experimental work, logic and algorithms, and programming and “differential programming” (deep learning)

formally based at the division of Environmental Technology and Management, the Department of Management and Engineering

Duties
The research will be conducted within a project aiming to investigate the conditions for capturing and utilizing carbon dioxide (carbon capture and utilization, CCU) from biogas production in Sweden. Raw biogas from anaerobic digestion is a mix of 50 -70 % methane and 30 – 50 % carbon dioxide. A lot of the biogas that is produced in Sweden is upgraded to obtain a cleaner methane gas that can be used as vehicle fuel, while the carbon dioxide is emitted to the atmosphere. The work in the project aims to investigate the possibilities for creating valuable products out of this carbon dioxide, as well as the possible values this could mean for biogas producers, for the society and for the environment. The project takes place in close connection to the Biogas Research Center (BRC) and in collaboration with actors within the biogas industry. Empirics for the project will be collected through literature studies, interviews and workshops, and will then be evaluated through scenario studies, case studies, life cycle assessment and life cycle cost analysis. The project is expected to contribute with knowledge on how biogas production can become more circular and competitive, thereby increasing in size and creating even more benefits for society.

The research education will take place at IEI and the division of Environmental Technology and Management. As a PhD student you will primarily devote yourself to your research. As a PhD student you are limited to work with education and administration up to 20 percent of full time.

Qualifications
Qualified to PhD studentships are only those who are or have been admitted to graduate studies.

The position requires very good knowledge within environmental systems analysis and environmental management. The applicant should hold a master of science or equivalent with a profile within environment or energy. The work requires some experience in applying systems analysis methods such as life cycle assessment and social scientific methods such as interviews. Knowledge and experience within market/economy, biogas production and CCU is also a merit.

Appointment time
The appointment will be until further notice for a maximum of one year at a time. A doctoral student may not be employed during a period exceeding eight years. The total time of appointment must not exceed the equivalent of four years’ full time research training.

Starting date
September 1st 2020 or by agreement.

Salary
