(03) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: 1-2 PhD students in molecular biophysics

The advent of Machine Learning (ML) has revolutionized structural biology. Many protein complexes can be predicted with high accuracy, and, together with experimental data, we can potentially build atomistic models of entire cellular compartments. This PhD project aims to bring together large-scale structure prediction using AlphaFold2 with mass spectrometry-based structural proteomics to understand the structure-function relationship of cellular machines, and in particular membraneless organelles that are formed via liquid-liquid phase separation. For this purpose, the PhD candidate will (a) design and produce phase-separating proteins to elucidate their gas-phase structures, (b) conduct large-scale AF2 predictions to identify interactions between cellular components, and (c) combine mass spectrometry, electron microscopy, and computational simulations to predict their three-dimensional structure, and their interactions with target proteins, in their native environment(s). There are, furthermore, opportunities to contribute to work in related areas, including integrating Omics data and alternative approaches within ML-based structure prediction.

(05) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD student in Physics (MSCA project SPIDoc’s)

Single particle imaging using X-ray pulses has become increasingly attainable with the advent of high-intensity free electron lasers. Eliminating the need for crystallised samples enables structural studies of molecules previously inaccessible by conventional crystallography. While this emerging technique already demonstrates substantial promise, some obstacles need to be overcome before SPI can reach its full potential. One such problem is determining the spatial orientation of the sample at the time of X-ray interaction. Simulations have predicted that the orientation of the protein at the instant when it is exposed to the X-ray pulse, can be determined by mapping the distribution of the ejected ions as the sample undergoes a Coulomb explosion following the intense ionisation. By detecting the ions ejected from the fragmented sample, the orientation of the original sample should be possible to determine. Knowledge of the orientation has been shown earlier to be of substantial advantage in the reconstruction of the original structure. This idea has potential to develop into a crucial tool for orientation retrievement in SPI experiments, but for it to reach its full potential we need to do further studies, both experimentally and using simulations. This project focuses on the simulations, with the goal to answer questions such as: “What is the dependence between the reproducibility of the ion distribution maps and the structure of the protein?”, “Can we determine the structure of the original molecule based on the information in the explosion?” You will study the X-ray-induced explosion dynamics of biomolecules using classical molecular dynamics and quantum mechanics simulations. The ion distribution maps will in the next step be analyzed to recover information of the structure of the original molecule. This will be done using machine learning algorithms, and combined with other types data, such as the aminoacid sequence, diffraction image and ion-spectra.

(11) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD in Evolutionary Genomics

Structural Variants (SVs) encompass a broad variety of (macro-)mutations from hundred nucleotides up to large parts of chromosomes (e.g., large-scale deletions / duplications, inversions). SVs are so common in eukaryotic genomes that the amount of genetic diversity they explain is higher than that explained by single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). However, mainly for technical reasons, SVs have so far been little studied and our understanding of key evolutionary processes is therefore incomplete. For instance, little is known about the mutation rates of the various types of SVs, their segregation patterns, and how recombination is affected nearby or within them. Similarly, little is known about the distribution of their fitness effects. This knowledge is much needed to understand the evolution of SVs and genome evolution in general.

PhD position summary/title: PhD student in Industrial Engineering

Historically Sweden has been a ‘nuclear state’ supporting the development and establishment of a nuclear industry resulting in the deployment of several nuclear reactors from the 1960s’ to the mid-1980s’. In the late 1970s’ the political landscape changed aiming to phase out nuclear energy production in the long run. With the increased (future) need for electricity due to the electrification of society as well as the need to limit CO2 emissions, the political landscape regarding nuclear technology is once more under transition, proposing a changing attitude towards developing and deploying nuclear energy production in Sweden.

PhD position summary/title: PhD student in 2D quantum materials (MSCA COFUND project PRISMAS)

Two-dimensional (2D) material van der Waals (vdW) heterostructures exhibit extraordinary quantum traits for next-generation nanoelectronics, spintronics, and optoelectronic applications. The project aims to investigate the quantum (electronic, phononic, and magnonic) properties and phenomena in novel directly-chemical vapor deposited 2D material heterostructures and their functionalized defect-passivated systems, and develop innovative devices. Here we will explore a new direct growth of 2D material heterostructures, for example, semiconducting MoS2 on graphene. Recently, we have innovated the growth of composite 2D heterostructures by nucleation-defined chemical vapor deposition. In this project, we specifically aim to probe the electronic structure of these new quantum materials via advanced x-rays spectroscopic tools, such as angle-resolved photoemission (ARPES), resonant inelastic x-ray scattering (RIXS), ambient pressure x-ray photoemission spectroscopy (APXPS), nano and micro-(ARPES), to uncover the band structure and surface charge transfer in directly CVD-grown 2D heterostructures of MoS2 over graphene and 2D magnets (Chromium Telluride) over graphene. This will help in understanding spin-orbit coupling and its influence on the electronic and magnonic (involving magnetic 2D materials) band structure in 2D heterostructures. In addition, the project will involve the investigation of defect passivation by chemical treatments on CVD-grown 2D materials. These objectives will impact the understanding of the properties of the directly grown 2D heterostructures and engineering their properties for efficient next-generation optoelectronic and spintronics devices, which will be innovated with these quantum materials. This project is expected to significantly contribute to pushing the boundaries of 2D quantum materials.

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.
