Project title: Tumour characterisation and early response assessment of tumour therapy with advanced multiparametric MR techniques 

Job assignments

Third-cycle studies are equivalent to four year full-time and lead to a Degree of Doctor. Those appointed to doctoral studentships shall primarily devote themselves to their studies. Those appointed to doctoral studentships may, however, work to a limited extent with educational tasks, research and administration. Before a PhD degree has been awarded, duties of this kind may not comprise more than 20 per cent of a full-time post.

The PhD education in Medical Science comprise 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://medarbetarportalen.gu.se/sahlgrenskaakademin/forskarutbildning/languageId=100001

Project: Imaging methods that can non-invasively characterize tumour tissue and tumour physiology would be of great importance for oncology. Functional multiparametric MR techniques such as diffusion techniques (DWI, IVIM, VERDICT), quantitative imaging (T1, T2 / T2 *) and spectroscopy (MRS, CEST) have shown great potential to provide insight into tumour physiology, microenvironment, cellularity and metabolism. These parameters can therefore be considered as potential image-based biomarkers for characterizing tumour tissue and can therefore also be used to study treatment effects.

The project will, for the most part, consist of the development of multiparametric measurement methods with in an experimental MRI set-up. In the latter part of the project, these methods can also be applied in patient studies. The measurements will be carried out on an experimental 7T MR system and on clinical MR systems (1.5T and 3T). Advanced image processing as well as advanced statistical analysis of data are integral parts of the project.

Eligibility

To be eligible for third-cycle studies, the applicant must meet both the general and specific entry requirements.

A person meets the general entry requirements for third-cycle studies if he or she:
1. has been awarded a second-cycle qualification
2. has satisfied the requirements for courses comprising at least 240 credits of which at least 60 credits were awarded in the second-cycle, or
3. has acquired substantially equivalent knowledge in some other way in Sweden or abroad

A person meets the specific entry requirements for third-cycle studies in Medical Science if he or she: has successfully completed the English B/6 course or is considered to have acquired equivalent knowledge through previous studies

Assessment

In selecting between applicants who meet the general and specific entry requirements, their ability to benefit from third-cycle studies shall be taken into account. The assessment shall attach particular importance to documented qualifications for:
– specific knowledge and skills within the subject area and related research fields
– experience of scientific theory and relevant research methodology
– scientific analysis and presentation verified through thesis, degree project, scientific journals or the like.

Documented experience in MRI physics as well as experience with experimental MRI methods and/or patient studies is a merit. Good computer knowledge and good programming knowledge, e.g. Matlab, is desirable. Great emphasis is placed on good ability to collaborate with different occupational categories in this multidisciplinary project. The project requires good knowledge of writing and speech in Swedish.

Employment

After admission to third-cycle studies you will be appointed to doctoral studentship. Regulations for employment of doctoral students are given in SFS 1993:100. The initial appointment may apply for no longer than one year. An appointment may be renewed for no more than two years at a time. A person may be appointed to a doctoral studentship for a total of eight years. The total employment period may, however, not exceed the time corresponding to full-time third-cycle study for four years.

The Institute of Health and Care Sciences at Sahlgrenska Academy, the Faculty of Health and Care Sciences at the University of Gothenburg, announces a doctoral student position in cooperation with KU Leuven (University of Leuven), Belgium, leading to a double degree (doctoral degree).

Project title: Making healthcare for complex chronic conditions sustainable and affordable: Developing an internationally validated algorithm to allocate patients to the appropriate level of care

Project: Congenital heart disease (CHD) is the most common congenital malformation and occurs in about 9 per 1,000 newborns. It comprises a wide spectrum of simple, moderate, and complex severity lesions. To date, about 95% of children born with CHD can reach adulthood. Irrespective of the treatment received in childhood, most of these patients require life-long follow-up.

Since CHD comprises a spectrum of heart lesions, patients may be cared for at three levels of care: (i) care exclusively in a CHD specialist center; (ii) care shared between CHD specialists and local general cardiologists; and (iii) non-CHD specialist care, either by general cardiologists or general practitioners. To date, the anatomical complexity of the patients’ heart defects is predominantly used to determine the appropriate setting of care. Unfortunately, there is currently very limited empirical data available to support this assignment of patients to the different levels of care. This results sometimes in a high proportion of patients that is kept into the tertiary care system, which may outstrip the capacity of these centers on the long run. On the other hand, a substantial proportion of patients experience care gaps. These two phenomena may yield suboptimal care provision for the growing population of adults with CHD.

The overall aim of this research project is to develop and test a strategy for risk stratification to determine the most appropriate setting of care for patients with CHD, based on clinical outcomes and healthcare expenditures.

We will use an open, multicenter retrospective cohort design, combining data from clinical databases and national registries in Sweden and Belgium. Data on mortality, cardiovascular-related morbidities, healthcare utilization will be retrieved and be linked to the levels of care. Assignments include database management and statistical analysis.

This is a unique project that involves both the pediatric and adult care, at an international level and in collaboration with internationally prominent researchers in cardiac care.

The PhD studies comprises 4 year full time studies with employment as doctoral student at Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, and lead to a double degree (doctoral degree) in collaboration with KU Leuven (University of Leuven) in Belgium. The doctoral student will be enrolled at both universities and is expected to spend at least 12 months at respective university during the PhD studies. Because the project is integrated into a national and international cooperation, the doctoral student needs to master English and periodically be able to travel to the partner university in Belgium.
