PhD position summary/title: PhD Student Position: Transition of patients with inborn errors of metabolism

Inborn errors of metabolism (IEM) are a group of rare diseases that are mostly diagnosed in childhood but can manifest at any age. Patients with IEM and complex and require treatment in centres able to provide lifelong state of the art, pharmacological, dietary and prevention competences. The University Children’s Hospital and the University Hospital Zurich, for instance, form such an expertise cluster for lifelong treatment. Transition is the process of preparing an adolescent for transfer to adult services. Transition and successful transfer are prerequisites for successful lifelong treatment and help to reduce the rate of patients lost to follow-up in their teen or adult years.

Deadline :  1 July 2022.

PhD position summary/title: PhD position in ecological remote sensing

In the frame of a larger SNSF-project (2 PhDs and 1 PostDoc) the research group Spatial Genetics at the Remote Sensing Laboratories of the University of Zürich invites applicants for a PhD position in ecological remote sensing. The project aims to understand and quantify the influence of forest structure and canopy ecophysiology on the vertical distribution of species richness and the trophic relationships between producers and consumers in forests. The project consists of two thematically interlinked PhDs in the subject areas forest biodiversity and ecological remote sensing. The position will use state-of-the art close range remote sensing technologies (ie. laser scanning and UAVs) to derive a set of morphological traits and to establish proxies of ecosystem functions, such as biomass and light availability.

PhD position summary/title: Open PhD position in the Integrative Spinal Research (ISR) group

This PhD position is embedded within the Clinical Research Priority Program CRPP PAIN, an interdisciplinary endeavour of the University of Zurich investigating pain mechanisms in a variety of chronic pain cohorts, including low back pain. In a large number of chronic low back pain patients, pathophysiological mechanisms are currently insufficiently understood. Sensitization mechanisms along the neuraxis presumably play in important role in the generation and maintenance of chronic low back pain. In the first funding period of the CRPP PAIN, we investigated peripheral and central sensitization mechanisms in chronic low back pain patients with the aim to sub-categorise patients. The main goal of the advertised PhD project will be to take this work further and to investigate to which degree these peripheral and central sensitization mechanisms are pathophysiologically relevant. This will be achieved by longitudinal studies in patients with chronic low back pain and in healthy control subjects. Methods that will be used might include clinical pain characterization, neurophysiology, pain modulation paradigms, quantitative sensory testing and brain imaging (functional magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic resonance spectroscopy). The final choice of methods depends on the final results of the first funding period of the CRPP PAIN.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Student Position: “Amylin – centrally mediated actions on metabolism and memory”

The massive rise in obesity rates is mainly due to changes in lifestyle, in particular increased caloric intake. To pursue important questions regarding amylin physiology and pathophysiology, we will continue our research project looking at the metabolic effects of amylin, and identify the exact and specific subtypes of neurons in various parts of the brain that are critically involved in amylin action. Further, we will investigate amylin action in respect to the control of glucose metabolism. The experimental work of this PhD thesis will combine in vivo approaches with analyses at the cellular and subcellular level to resolve the mechanisms mediating amylin’s actions.

PhD position summary/title: Two PhD Positions MediaGraph

Human knowledge is inherently multi-modal, and it is more than just a collection of isolated pieces of information, irrespective of the form of expression. Instead, it emerges from the interconnectedness of all of these information fragments. Knowledge graphs are a powerful way of capturing such interconnected knowledge. Such graphs are effective for storing and relating information that can easily be expressed in textual form, by assigning a simple text label to every node in a graph or relating them to literals represented using strings or blobs. However, they so far fail to capture the richness of information, which is not easily expressed as a short piece of text.
