(02) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD student in Bioinformatics

In Senior Professor Komorowski’s bioinformatic group the research focus is machine learning for Life Sciences.  Our methods are usually founded in Computer Science and Statistics while problems to be solved are often defined by Life Scientists.  In collaboration between Professor Komorowski’s Bioinformatics group and the group of Professor Michael Gale at University of Washington, Seattle, USA, we are developing combinatorial models of the immune system’s responses to vaccines.  Our primary approach is to use interpretable machine learning techniques, also called transparent, that are not only able to make predictions but most importantly can provide interpretations of the results.  This means that is possible to answer the questions how the predictions are reached in stark contrast to so-called black-box models.  The aim of this PhD position is provision of a deeper understanding of the immune system when it develops protection upon vaccination. This will require further developments of machine learning methods of the transparent type.  The PhD student is expected to be involved both in building machine learning models of the immune system and in the interpretation of the results.  The candidate is expected to assist in teaching a machine learning course.  

Deadline : 26 June 2024

(03) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: MSCA PhD student in Biochemistry

The project is a part of a larger EU-funded doctoral network (SPIDoc’s, https://www.ms-spidoc.eu/). The purpose of the network is to advance virus-related structural biology, where a considerable challenge lies in that the proteins change between different conformations over their life time and that their dynamics are very important for the virus’s life cycle. Using mainly native mass spectrometry, ion mobility, imaging with X-ray free electron lasers, and molecular dynamics simulations, viral particles with be interrogated in the gas phase, that is, taken out of solution, which circumvents a number of difficulties faced in solution-based methods. The doctoral student will work in Erik Marklund’s research group, which uses computational biochemical methods to study the structure, dynamics, and interactions of biological macromolecules. A significant part of the group’s work concern native mass spectrometry and related techniques. The doctoral student’s research will revolve around how strong electric fields can be used to manipulate the proteins and how that can benefit the imaging experiments, as well as towards the network’s overarching goal to determine the structure and interactions of virus proteins. Because the position is connected to a larger network, collaboration with the other partners will be of great importance, with opportunities for experimental and theoretical work at their premises.

(04) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD student in Molecular Pharmaceutics

The purpose of the doctoral project is to develop new molecules that can be used for more effective uptake of orally administered drugs, particularly therapeutic peptides. This will be done by using new methods within artificial intelligence for molecular design, in combination with physically-based modeling of interactions between model peptides and the intestinal environment, as well as in combination with cell profiling data from a related project.

There are several advantages to oral drug administration compared to the alternatives. Patients can manage their own medication, do not need assistance from healthcare professionals, and avoid various types of injections. Drugs in the form of therapeutic peptides also have advantages over traditional low-molecular-weight substances, and increasing their uptake when administered orally is desirable. However, in the body, there are numerous barriers of various kinds that have evolved to prevent the intrusion of foreign substances, which is a problem from a drug delivery perspective. One strategy that can be used is to add an additional molecule to the formulation, which enables the drug peptide to bypass some of these barriers. This strategy works in principle but is hindered by a lack of knowledge about which properties a molecule used for this purpose should have to optimally contribute to increased absorption.

(05) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD student in Molecular Pharmaceutics

The purpose of the doctoral project is to develop new molecules that can be used for more effective uptake of orally administered drugs, particularly therapeutic peptides. This will be achieved by using various types of cell profiling methods to examine how cells react in different ways to these so-called permeability enhancers and how permeability is affected by this. The data generated will be used in combination with artificial intelligence methods for molecular design in a related project to generate new molecules with tailored properties for increased absorption of therapeutic peptides.

(06) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD position in Evolutionary Genomics

Global estimates suggest that less than 5% of the true fungal diversity is currently described, largely because the majority of the up to 5 million fungal species on earth have no visible fruiting structures and cannot easily be cultured using established methods. Because the hidden majority of species defy established protocols for species recognition, we cannot effectively communicate about the majority of fungal species, many of which are frequently and abundantly detected in environmental samples. The proposed project uses species hypotheses built on environmental DNA (eDNA) data for targeted high-resolution microscopy and single cell genomics to infer evolutionary history and life cycle dynamics of hitherto undescribed fungal species and lineages.

We are looking for a PhD student who will study hidden fungal diversity. The project focuses on the Archaeorhizomycetes which, based on environmental DNA data, is a species rich and abundantly occurring class of soil and root associated fungi. The project aims to contribute important basic understanding of species diversity and genomics in this ubiquitous group of fungi. It is also conceptually important for developing protocols for modern fungal taxonomy with eDNA as an important source of data for species discovery and recognition.

(07) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD student in the Field of Diagnostics and Therapy for Neurodegenerative Diseases

The overall goal of the doctoral project is to identify and study proteins whose expression or distribution is altered in neurodegeneration and then generate brain-penetrating antibodies that bind to these proteins. These antibodies will then be used to develop new diagnostics, such as PET and SPECT radioligands, or for therapeutic applications to investigate whether the antibodies affect pathology in models of neurodegenerative diseases. The work thus involves both in vitro work, primarily immunological and histological methods, and in vivo studies in models of neurodegenerative diseases.

(10) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral (PhD) position in Solid State Physics, with focus on Optical materials and Nanophotonics

The project aims to develop principles for manipulating nanostructures with light. Two parallel tracks with a direct connection to each other must be examined. 1) A completely new type of technology for computer and mobile phone screens is to be developed. In the project, dynamically tunable metamaterials for passive display technology in so-called E-papers are studied. By using electrochromic materials with color memory capacity as the base material, its power consumption will be only <1% of current LED display technology, allowing it to be fully powered by solar cells, as in a regular calculator. 2) The project will also explore intelligent materials using similar nano-fabrication techniques and light manipulation. Here, artificial intelligence is obtained by programming metastructures of nano/microparticles, which can spontaneously “search” for specific environments through light manipulation, similar to how bacteria do (with other stimuli). Other applications are dynamically tunable structures for manipulating light in optoelectronic applications.

About Uppsala University, Sweden –Official Website

Uppsala University  is a research university in Uppsala, Sweden. Founded in 1477, it is the oldest university in Sweden and all of the Nordic countries still in operation. It has ranked among the world’s 100 best universities in several high-profile international rankings during recent years. The university uses “Gratiae veritas naturae” as its motto and embraces natural sciences.

The university rose to pronounced significance during the rise of Sweden as a great power at the end of the 16th century and was then given a relative financial stability with the large donation of King Gustavus Adolphus in the early 17th century. Uppsala also has an important historical place in Swedish national culture, identity and for the Swedish establishment: in historiography, literature, politics, and music. Many aspects of Swedish academic culture in general, such as the white student cap, originated in Uppsala. It shares some peculiarities, such as the student nation system, with Lund University and the University of Helsinki.

Uppsala belongs to the Coimbra Group of European universities and to the Guild of European Research-Intensive Universities. The university has nine faculties distributed over three “disciplinary domains”. It has about 44,000 registered students and 2,300 doctoral students. It has a teaching staff of roughly 1,800 (part-time and full-time) out of a total of 6,900 employees. Twenty-eight per cent of the 716 professors at the university are women. Of its turnover of SEK 6.6 billion (approx. USD 775 million) in 2016, 29% was spent on education at Bachelor’s and Master’s level, while 70% was spent on research and research programs.

Architecturally, Uppsala University has traditionally had a strong presence in Fjärdingen, the neighbourhood around the cathedral on the western side of the River Fyris. Despite some more contemporary building developments further away from the centre, Uppsala’s historic centre continues to be dominated by the presence of the university.
