Project description: PhD position in Clinical Psychology and Behavioral Medicine.

Uppsala University, Department of Psychology, Division of Clinical Psychology

The overall focus of Lance McCracken´s research team is to develop broadly cognitive behavioral treatments particularly applied within physical health. This work incorporates principles of Contextual Behavioral Science, the psychological flexibility model, and is mostly applied clinical research. The PhD student will be involved in all stages of research from conceptualization and pilot testing of new assessment and treatment delivery methods through to preliminary testing of efficacy and mechanisms of change. Current directions in the research team include the development of “process-based therapy” and ideographic approaches to studying intraindividual behavioral processes and developing new treatments. Populations of interest are likely to include people with chronic pain conditions. More specific populations may include fibromyalgia, headache, vulvodynia, or neuropathic pain. Research within the group has included the use of therapist supported online treatments as a vehicle for testing treatment components. There is a strong interest in using these treatments as a tool to investigate ways to customize treatments, to optimize both efficiency and clinical outcomes. Right now the team is exploring the application of single case experimental designs as an alternative to randomized controlled trials. These will be used to investigate efficacy, mechanism of change, and moderation, and as the appropriate base to accommodate a truly dynamic process-based approach to treatment. Thus, the successful applicant should have an interest in contextual behavioral science, treatment development, and physical health, particularly chronic pain conditions. The PhD student will be involved in different clinical projects. Prior experience in broadly cognitive behavioral treatment delivery, in physical health settings, and in multidisciplinary teams will be beneficial. The direction of initial studies will be led by the PhD supervisors, and subsequent projects will require substantial direction from the PhD student who will formulate their own research questions and design their own projects within the general focus of the research group.

PhD student in Pharmaceutical Nanotechnology

Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong international standing. Our mission is to pursue top-quality research and education and to interact constructively with society. Our most important assets are all the individuals whose curiosity and dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has 44.000 students, 7.100 employees and a turnover of SEK 7 billion.

SciLifeLab (www.scilifelab.se) is a Swedish national center for molecular biosciences with focus on health and environmental research. The center combines frontline technical expertise with advanced knowledge of translational medicine and molecular bioscience. SciLifeLab is hosted by four Swedish universities (Uppsala University, Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm University) and collaborates with several other universities.

The Department of Pharmacy offers a stimulating multidisciplinary working environment in research and teaching within the Pharmacy disciplines. The Department centers its research on Drug Delivery, Rational Drug Usage and Pharmaceutical Materials Science. The research is developed by a series of research groups, several of international prominence. The research groups represent a unique cluster of academic competences in Sweden and the Department of Pharmacy has thus a key role in the development of the pharmacy discipline in Sweden. Information about the department and the research groups can be found at www.farmfak.uu.se/farm/.

The PhD student will be linked to the research group Drug Delivery. The group takes a multidisciplinary approach and combines computational chemistry and bioinformatics with cell- and molecular biology, biopharmaceutics, pharmaceutics and physical chemistry to find new ways to predict and define rate-limiting barriers to the absorption and organ distribution of different types of drugs. We anticipate that our research will provide insights into new mechanisms for drug absorption, disposition and delivery, which will support development of new therapeutic strategies for efficient oral drug delivery. The position is placed in the research group of Alexandra Teleki that is associated with the Science for Life Laboratory.

Duties/Project description: The PhD student will work in the field of pharmaceutical nanotechnology, within the project Hybrid nanocarrier drug formulations. The overall purpose of the project is to establish a novel oral drug delivery platform incorporating functional nanoparticlestailored towards personalized medicine. The hybrid approach incorporates functional nanomaterials in the drug delivery system in order to (i) modulate formulation dispersion/dissolution, uptake and thus drug release profiles, and (ii) combine therapeutic with diagnostic capabilities. For example, drug release can be triggered by magnetic hyperthermia and nanoparticle ligands can be targeted towards specific disease biomarkers. The developed nano-enabled drug formulations will be 3D printed into personalized oral solid dosage forms. The ultimate goal is thus to develop a platform for oral drug formulations that can readily be personalized both with respect to the dosage form and the subsequent drug release/targeting capability upon administration.

The project is highly interdisciplinary acting at the interface of pharmaceutical and material sciences. It will primarily explore particle stabilized emulsions as oral drug delivery vehicles exhibiting the previously mentioned functionalities as well as their 3D printability into final oral dosage forms. The PhD student will explore various nanoparticle functionalities to trigger and control drug release. Using experimental methods, the PhD student will work on tailoring nanoparticle properties to encapsulate model drugs, identifying key properties that govern functionality of the novel drug delivery system and characterizing their performance upon oral administration in state-of-the-art pharmaceutical in vitro systems in order to successfully translate nano-enabled diagnosis and therapy to the gastrointestinal tract environment. The project thus closely links nanoparticle synthesis and drug formulation technologies for the design of multifunctional oral dosage forms.

Requirements: The successful candidate should have a Master of Science in Pharmaceutics, Chemical Engineering, Material Sciences or other relevant area.  The applicant must also have excellent communication skills in English, both written and oral, due to the highly international work environment.

Additional qualifications: Previous experience working with nanomaterial synthesis and characterization, pharmaceutical formulation technologies, additive manufacturing techniques and cell-based in vitro models is beneficial.

Rules governing PhD students are set out in the Higher Education Ordinance chapter 5, §§ 1-7 and in Uppsala University’s rules and guidelines http://regler.uu.se/?languageId=1.

Information about postgraduate studies, including eligibility requirements and admission rules, can be found at http://www2.medfarm.uu.se/utbildning/forskarniva/. The holder of a PhD-student position shall primarily devote her or his time to own research studies. Other departmental work, such as educational or administrative duties, can be part of the position (max 20%).

How to apply: The application should contain the following:

  • CV
  • Contact details of at least two references (email and telephone number)
  • A personal letter describing previous experience and qualifications, research interests, plans for the future and motivation to apply for the PhD position,
  • Authorized copies of relevant certificates, degrees and grades, and

Copy of the master thesis and any other relevant document such as publications.

Uppsala University strives to be an inclusive workplace that promotes equal opportunities and attracts qualified candidates who can contribute to the University’s excellence and diversity. We welcome applications from all sections of the community and from people of all backgrounds.

Salary: According to local agreement for PhD students.
