LINKÖPING UNIVERSITY
Hereby advertises a position as
PhD student in Health Sciences, cardiovascular imaging and image analysis
formally based at the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Department of Medical and Health Sciences

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.

Description of thesis project ”Advanced quantitative imaging and image analysis for improved risk-assessment in vascular disease”
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a versatile technique that permits quantification and visualization of blood flow in the heart and greater vessels. The cardiovascular MRI research group at Linköping University is world leading in this area. 

Clinical assessment of vascular diseases such as constrictions and widenings (aneurysms) are currently largely based on measurements of the vessel diameter. In this project, we use MRI to acquire multidimensional information about blood flow and develop analysis methods that makes it possible to take much more than the vessel diameter into account when assessing vascular disease. The methods we develop are applied in selected patient groups with for example constrictions in the carotid arteries or aneurysms in the aorta. 

Consequently, the PhD thesis project involves development of imaging and/or image analysis methods to assess the interrelationship between abnormal blood flow and vascular diseases such as constrictions or aneurysms. Depending on the candidate’s profile, the thesis work can focus on development of MRI methods, fluid dynamics, image processing and/or image analysis. 

The thesis work will be conducted in the multi-disciplinary research group for cardiovascular MRI (www.liu.se/cmr) at the Center for medical image science and visualization (CMIV).

The project will be conducted at the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Department of Medical and Health Sciences.

Qualifications
The applicant should have a master’s degree in biomedical engineering, computer science, mechanical engineering, or similar. Good communication skills in verbal and written English are required, as is the capacity to collaborate and work independently in collaborative projects. Good communication skills in Swedish are considered a merit. The applicant should have good skills in computer programming, especially in Matlab or similar. Experience in work involving MRI and or fluid dynamics, especially when directed at cardiovascular applications, is considered a merit. The applicant should be highly motivated to undergo PhD studies.

Qualified to PhD studentships are only those who are or have been admitted to graduate studies. Read more here

Duties
We perform research in theoretical and computational physics in the areas of materials design and informatics. Our research is aimed at increased understanding of the theory of materials and has applications in the development of new materials, for example, for energy harvesting, conversion, and storage. The work spans areas of mathematical physics, quantum mechanics, numerical methods, programming, and the use of informatics and AI methods in materials research.
Ongoing research projects include the development of theoretical methods for the computational prediction of materials properties, execution of high-throughout calculations on supercomputers aimed at design of new materials, development of software for automated computation, analysis, and data curation in large scale databases, and the use of informatics and machine learning/AI-based methods on materials data.

The work as a PhD student includes independent work and close collaboration with other researchers and students at the department. You will take part in our joint seminars and other research group activities.

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.

LINKÖPING UNIVERSITY
hereby advertises a position as Postdoctoral fellow in Ageing and Social Change formally based at the Division Ageing and Social Change (ASC), Department of Social and Welfare Studies (ISV), from January Department of Culture and Society (IKOS)

ASC conducts research on ageing and social change, and the main focus is on the relationship between the life-courses and their societal contexts. From an interdisciplinary perspective, ASC focuses on key social, political and cultural issues of ageing in a changing society. While providing basic and advanced academic training within these fields, ASC also contributes to the proliferation of knowledge about ageing within society.

Duties
The postdoctoral fellow will work within ASC’s research programme EIWO – Exclusion and Inequality in Late Working Life: Evidence for Policy Innovation Towards Inclusive Extended Work and Sustainable Working Conditions in Sweden and Europe and focusses on life-course oriented comparative research on working life, life-course policies, life-long learning, ageing and social exclusion. It is conducted in close cooperation within an international consortium of partners from four European countries – United Kingdom, Germany, Poland and Sweden. The postdoctoral fellow will primarily conduct research and may carry out teaching limited to a fifth of working time.

Qualifications
The position requires a Ph.D. or an equivalent degree, e.g. in Sociology, Economics, Political Sciences, Statistics, Gerontology, Ageing Research or related disciplines. The doctorate shall have been obtained no longer than three years before the starting date of the employment? 

A successful candidate should have a high interest and documented experiences in the research area of the EIWO programme. A successful candidate should have a specific interest in issues of working life, ageing, life-long learning, life-course policies, social exclusion, inequality life-course and social change in order to carry out research in this area.

A successful candidate should have very good knowledge in statistics in general, as well as in overall quantitative methodology and analysis tools. Key competences and experiences include knowledge on study design, data processing, and data analysis. Excellent expertise concerning analysis software such as SPSS or STATA is crucial; experience with Mplus and proper knowledge of complex statistical analysis methods and modelling are a significant bonus. Good knowledge in qualitative research and in policy analysis as well as the ability to work in an international consortium are a relevant plus. Familiarity with complex mixed-methods research designs is especially meriting.

Very good knowledge of English, both verbal and written, as well as the ability to work well in dialogue with others is expected. Good skills in verbal and written Swedish is an advantage.

It is expected that a successful candidate will contribute to the discussion of research and analytical concepts in order to improve quality of the divisions’ scientific output in the further development of ASC. 

Duration of employment
A postdoctoral fellow is appointed until further notice, but for no longer than two years. The appointment can be renewed if there are special reasons.

Starting date 
By agreement – preferably by February 1, 2020.

Salary
The University applies individual salary scales adapted to the experience of the employee and to the labour market.
