PhD position summary/title: PhD Position at the Professorship for Global Health

This PhD position is offered within the EU-funded research project “Disentangling and Preventing Economic Violence against Women (ECOVI)”. Violence against women is a violation of fundamental human rights and substantially compromises women’s health, wellbeing, and empowerment. Globally, more than one in four women experience physical and/or sexual violence by a partner in their lives. However, existing research has so far neglected an important dimension of intimate partner violence (IPV): economic abuse. This form of abuse includes denying women the right to participate in financial decisions, taking away their income or preventing them from seeking employment. The consequences are profound – economic IPV compromises women’s economic welfare and independence, traps them in abusive relationships, and adversely affects their mental health. To tackle this major global health concern, ECOVI has three objectives: first, to establish the prevalence of different forms of economic IPV; second, to develop a theory of economic abuse by investigating drivers of economic IPV and linkages with other forms of IPV; and third, to design and test a community-based prevention approach. ECOVI will capitalise on a mixed-methods approach, including (i) systematic reviews and meta-analyses, (ii) conducting qualitative in-depth interviews and focus groups, and (iii) implementing a cluster randomised controlled trial and innovative survey experiments with husbands and wives in 150 communities across three states in India.

Deadline : 15 July 2024

PhD position summary/title: PhD Student position in Immunology

T helper cells represent a heterogeneous population of immune cells that are critical for host defense and, if dysregulated, for pathologies such as autoimmunity and allergy. T cell responses take place in peripheral tissues. Yet, insights into their identity and regulation stem almost exclusively from investigations of circulating blood, which comprises only 2% of the total human T cell population. Accordingly, current immunomodulatory drugs act systemically, but lack tissue specificity. Despite progress in the temporary suppression of chronic inflammatory diseases, they still fail to be curative. This project aims to address this unmet medical need by generating fundamental insights into the dynamic compartmentalisation of human tissue resident T helper cells across space and time.

Our interdisciplinary team has established a surgical patient cohort for the collection of multi-organ tissue samples and a cohort of patients after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) that enables tracking T cell tissue entry and exit over time in matched organs by single-cell chimerism analysis. Using multimodal state-of-the-art technologies and specialized high-throughput cell culture methodologies in these two unique patient cohorts, the project will dissect 1) the phenotypic, functional and transcriptional identity and molecular regulation of human resident T helper cells across tissues, 2) the compartmentalisation of their antigen specificities across tissues, 3) the dynamics of tissue entry, persistence and exit for distinct T helper cell types in space and time, and will then 4) exploit chimeric host/donor T cell-tracking to gain novel insights into the cellular and molecular pathways underlying graft-versus-host disease. Overall, this project will establish first-of-its-kind insights into the spatio-temporal dynamic organisation of human T cell immunity in tissues. This will bring the next generation of immunotherapies to the level of tissue specificity.

PhD position summary/title: TUM Asia doctoral candidate scholarship position: “Digital Twin based Lean Construction Logistics for High-Density-Good Supply and Disposal in Urban Environments”

The research project aims to develop an innovative and scalable logistics system for high density goods (e.g. concrete, heavy machinery, building super structures, etc.) in order to efficiently and effectively supply and dispose urban construction sites.
The aspect of construction logistics in particular, which is responsible for the supply and disposal of construction sites, can benefit from the use of digital technologies in the future in order to increase productivity and flexibility as well as sustainability in the form of cost and resource efficiency, but also urban quality of living.
One example is the use of tracking and tracing technologies, such as RFID, to support the search for materials, which currently accounts for around 30% of working time and increased traffic around constructions sites. Furthermore, new lean logistics strategies can minimize the number of trucks and the packaging of materials through consolidation centers to improve the last mile. Driven by high requirements regarding handling, reliability, and time, these consolidation centers are a complex intralogistics system strongly depending on the particular good group that shall be handled.
