PhD position summary/title:  PhD Student

While unsustainable development increasingly threatens Europe’s cultural heritage (CH) assets, museums and conservators continue searching for green approaches and materials. In the preservation of tangible CH assets, carbon-based soiling is among the most significant deteriorations factors. Pollution, vandalism, smoke and fires can cause catastrophic carbon-based contamination to tangible CH assets, and cleaning is essential for their preservation. However, the currently available methods require hazardous chemicals, physical contact, and water, which can be too disruptive to many art materials. The urgent need for sustainable green approaches has been emphasized for over a decade, summarized in ICOM-CC’s Melbourne 2014 declaration, but the actual progress in creating green solutions has been very slow. To kick-start a breakthrough, the European Commission has funded Green Atmospheric Plasma Generated Monoatomic OXYgen Technology for Restoration of the Works of Art – MOXY project 2022-2026, coordinated by Ghent University with a Horizon Europe grant in the call Green Technologies and Materials

(05) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title:  PhD Student

We are offering a PhD scholarship to unravel the mechanistic basis of hybrid defects. Hybrid defects, such as hybrid mortality and sterility, are post-zygotic isolation barriers that drive speciation by reducing gene flow. These defects can evolve rapidly and occur within species and between incipient species that hybridize. The underlying processes have captivated evolutionary biologists since the early 20th century. This project will contribute to resolving the genetic and molecular mechanisms that shape divergent hybrid defects within a three-species model system. We will test how nuclear incompatibilities interact with symbiont-mediated incompatibilities. We will also unravel how polygenic hybrid dysfunction is regulated, further uncovering the early enigmatic speciation processes.

We are offering a PhD scholarship to unravel the molecular-genetic mechanisms of host-symbiont interactions. Endosymbiotic Wolbachia bacteria commonly infect arthropods and can spread rapidly through host populations by inducing cytoplasmic incompatibility (CI). The strength of CI varies widely across biological systems and numerous hypotheses have been put forward to explain the underlying mechanisms. This project will contribute to resolving the genetic, molecular, and biochemical mechanisms that shape CI strength from the perspective of Wolbachia and host. To more fully understand the evolution of Wolbachia-induced CI, these mechanisms will be dissected using multiple genetic model systems.

PhD position summary/title:  PhD Student

While simulations at convection-permitting scales have shown benefits in the timing and organization of precipitation, even the latest generation of regional climate models suffers from considerable uncertainty in simulating precipitation extremes. Data sciences and ever-higher resolution will undoubtedly improve simulations over the next decade. However, continued development of scale-aware and unified parametrizations will remain essential for breakthroughs in the quality of simulations and our fundamental understanding of the atmosphere.

PhD position summary/title:    PhD Student

Photovoltaic Installations (PV), Electric Vehicles (EV), Energy Storage (ES) and Heat Pumps (HP), combined “Stochastic Distribution Grid Exchanges” (SDGE) can result in additional stress on the distribution system due to their fundamentally different behavior from traditional households and building behavior. Due to the increased use of Stochastic Distribution Grid Exchanges (SDGE), the available grid capacity becomes more unpredictable. The grid capacity, further noted as “ampacity” is important to the Distribution System Operator (DSO). Users need to be aware to what extent they can exchange power with the grid under different circumstances, and to which extent they can participate in the energy services and markets. By doing so, we take into account: (i) the impact of decentralized generation, (ii) the integration of storage and (iii) integration of intelligent systems for flexible grid use. The objective of the project can be summarized as the development of innovative concept to avoid hosting capacity problems on distribution grids, taking into maximum grid use, with the goal to improve the performance and reliability.

PhD position summary/title:  Postdoctoral fellow

Large-scale agricultural and hydrological management requires data of terrestrial evaporation (E) and root-zone soil moisture (SM) with high spatial resolution and accuracy. However, neither E nor SM can be directly measured from satellites, and in situ measurements are sparse and insufficient for continuous monitoring over large regions. Consequently, retrieval models and process-based algorithms have been developed during the past decades to indirectly estimate these variables from satellite data, sometimes using in situ measurements, but just for calibration. The existing methods are still not optimized for high-resolution applications, sometimes do not have full continental coverage, or do not meet the required accuracy standards. HERMES will yield a first-of-its-kind, high-resolution, high accuracy, evaporation and root-zone soil moisture dataset across Europe and Africa. It will benefit from (a) the progress in high-resolution remote sensing heralded by the EU Copernicus program, the Sentinel constellation, and the Meteosat second generation sensors, and (b) novel advances in AI and visualization technologies applied to Earth Observation data. HERMES will also bridge towards actual stakeholder requirements in the fields of water and agricultural management.

Top 16 Tools for Researchers in 2022

 

(17) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title:  PhD Student
A study of the dynamics of beamforming of advanced Massive MIMO wireless systems for realistic scenarios is needed. The dynamics will be dependent on many parameters, and it is challenging to include these dynamics in the simulations. The exposure of the user by the basestation as well as by the smartphone will need to be included. It is the first time that millimeter waves (e.g., 26 GHz band) will be used in wireless access and in industrial applications. The simulation tools for outdoor and indoor exposure calculations will need to be extended to cover these frequencies and simulations of realistic scenarios will have to be executed and interpreted.
3. The experimental exposure assessment at millimeter waves is also new and challenging. The capture of the dynamical electromagnetic waves at these very high frequencies is not yet fully investigated.

Juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia (JMML) is a rare, aggressive type of childhood leukemia. Despite groundbreaking research into its origins, the disease mechanism of JMML has not yet been fully elucidated. It was recently shown that not only genes (DNA), but also other cellular mechanisms such as RNA play an important role in JMML. In this project proposal we want to investigate the interplay of genomic (DNA), transcriptomic (RNA) and epigenetic factors in cells from JMML patients. This integrated approach will provide new insights into the pathogenesis and course of the disease, as a result of which new therapeutic targets will be identified. These are urgently needed as bone marrow transplantation is still the standard treatment for JMML with poor survival rates, among others due to side effects and the risk of recurrence. In addition, for therapeutic targets, extensive molecular investigations will be performed to assess their function and role in JMML disease.

About Ghent University, Belgium  –Official Website

Ghent University is a public research university located in Ghent, Belgium. It was established in 1817 by King William I of the Netherlands. After the Belgian revolution of 1830, the newly formed Belgian state began to administer the university. In 1930, the university became the first Dutch-speaking university in Belgium, whereas French had previously been the standard academic language in what was Université de Gand. In 1991, it was granted major autonomy and changed its name accordingly from State University of Ghent (Dutch: Rijksuniversiteit Gent, abbreviated as RUG) to its current designation.

In contrast to the Catholic University of Leuven or the Free University of Brussels, UGent considers itself a pluralist university in a special sense, i.e. not connected to any particular religion or political ideology. Its motto Inter Utrumque (‘In Between Both Extremes’), on the coat of arms, suggests the acquisition of wisdom and science comes only in an atmosphere of peace, when the institution is fully supported by the monarchy and fatherland.

Ghent University is one of the biggest Flemish universities, consisting of 44,000 students and 9,000 staff members. The University also supports the University Library and the University Hospital, which is one of the largest hospitals in Belgium. It is one of the greatest beneficiaries of funding from the Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO). Ghent University consistently rates among the top 100 universities in the world.
