PhD position summary/title: PhD position on the Social Sustainability of Algorithms in Chronic Pain Management – DTU Management
Are you interested in pursuing a PhD in Science and Technology Studies? The Department for Technology, Management and Economics calls for applicants to take up a PhD research on the social sustainability of algorithms in chronic pain management. With the PhD research we expect to gain a better understanding of patient knowledge and experience with chronic pain, as well as of the role of algorithmic systems in the management of pain. The findings of this study will contribute to the growing body of literature on the social power of algorithms, digital health technology, and care for the chronically ill. The successful applicant will be based in the division Technology & Business Studies and conduct a qualitative research project about how people living with chronic pain use algorithmic tools in their care. Chronic pain is notoriously difficult to treat as it is subjective and often unpredictable. In this context, algorithmic systems promise to ‘read out’ patterns and insights from patient generated or passively collected data. While such tools promise to support patients, there are also issues that pose challenges to their social sustainability related to the misrecognition of patient knowledge, the illness experience, and data work. The candidate will investigate patients’ knowledge practices and lived experiences at the interface of algorithms and chronic pain while also exploring new design strategies for co-creating socially sustainable algorithms in chronic care.

PhD position summary/title: PhD scholarship in bioinspired hierarchical ceramic based composites by microstructural engineering – DTU Energy
The Department of Energy Conversion and Storage, Technical University of Denmark (DTU), invites applications for a PhD scholarship in the development of bioinspired hierarchical ceramic for both room and high temperature load bearing application. Ceramics are inherently brittle, but it can come as a surprise to us that human bone and teeth are majorly ceramics and yet support the load of a human body for almost a lifetime. The mother of pearl (nacre) is yet another example of a natural material which is 95% ceramics and has a combination of mechanical strength and toughness. Although the constituents of bone and pearl are calcium phosphate and calcium carbonate respectively, the secret of extra-ordinary mechanical properties lies in the hierarchical microstructure. Nature has a limited option of materials which are mainly calcium based due to its availability and ease of bio-mineralization. However, we humans have the whole periodic table to us and we can use advanced materials with already good mechanical properties for the fabrication of ceramic or its composites thereof.

PhD position summary/title: PhD scholarship in microalgae production for shellfish hatchery – DTU Aqua
Are you interested in investigating innovative tools and methods for producing microalgae adapted to shellfish hatcheries and contribute to the fields of aquaculture, restoration and microalgae resource valorisation? On how to adapt microalgae culture to generate sustainable and cost-efficient feed using either model strains or local polyspecific communities? Would you like to collaborate with stakeholders to support both the industry and the environment? If so, here is an opportunity for you. At DTU Aqua, we offer a 3-year PhD student position with focus on microalgae production as food for shellfish hatchery production of the local European flat oyster Ostrea edulis in our newly built low trophic species hatchery and nursery (link hatchery) located at the Danish Shellfish Centre in Nykøbing Mors in the Northern part of Denmark. You will be employed in the Section for Coastal Ecology and work together with Nantes University, located in Saint-Nazaire, France, in the Section of Bioprocesses Applied to Microalgae. During your scholarship, you will gain scientific expertise in marine biology, shellfish growth, ecophysiology, nutritional composition, microalgae and microbiome composition, microalgae culture, environmental interactions, water monitoring, ecosystem services, bivalve restoration and aquaculture including enhanced culture practice methods for European flat oyster production and how to make management recommendations. Your PhD project is integrated in the LTA BOOST project https://lta-boost.dtu.dk/en/ for which the overall goal is to develop Low Trophic species Aquaculture (LTA) in Danish waters. In your PhD project you will provide new tools and technologies to upscale cost-efficient and sustainable production of feed for shellfish in hatchery. Food production in shellfish hatchery represents up to 25-60% of the costs. Traditionally, mix of monoculture of few common microalgae species are produced to feed shellfish. However, shellfish performances in the hatchery suggest that monoculture mix lacks nutrients that could be provided by a diversified microalgal and bacterial community. Besides, stored broodstock in hatchery as well as recently produced spat in micronursery require large amount of food and low-cost technologies transferable to low-tech hatcheries. A simple low-cost approach could be to directly grow microalgal biomass from natural seawater in open ponds, yet this is not an option in areas where local water is contaminated by parasite such Bonamia ostrea for disease-free production of Ostrea edulis,which requires high water treatment as part of the biosecurity measures. Therefore, new strategies need to be defined to generate cost-efficient and qualitative microalgal feed for Ostrea edulis hatcheries.

PhD position summary/title: PhD scholarship in Self-Configurable Devices for Oral Drug Delivery – DTU Health Tech
In connection with our ERC Advanced Grant “FREJA”, we are currently looking for a PhD student who will be working on macroscale devices primarily aimed at enabling oral drug delivery of pharmaceutical compositions that cannot be delivered in a feasible manner using conventional dosage forms such as tablets and capsules. In the IDUN section at DTU Health Tech, we have explored novel devices that can increase the systemic uptake of e.g. peptide drugs by facilitating an intimate contact between the active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) and the intestinal epithelium. As an example, we have developed a self-unfolding elastomeric foil which can be triggered in the small intestine. In broader terms, self-configurable devices are characterized by their ability to change shape in order to facilitate close proximity between API and the intestinal epithelium. Such devices must be contained in the limited inner volume of size 00-000 capsules. Upon triggering in the small intestine or colon they must unfold or swell and mediate a substantial pressure against the intestinal lining. In collaboration with other members of IDUN research section working on the FREJA project, the PhD student will spearhead the design and development of self-configurable devices composed of biocompatible and biodegradable materials. We offer a highly creative, collaborative and ambitious work environment. This project will be part of the IDUN research section, led by Prof. Anja Boisen at DTU Health Tech. IDUN is a cross-disciplinary research section with over 40 members, that focuses on development of micro and nanotechnology-based sensors, detection systems and drug delivery devices.

PhD position summary/title: PhD scholarship in Environmental effects of maritime activities – DTU Aqua
The Phd project focuses on the effects of multiple shipping-induced stressors on the marine planktonic food webs in the Baltic and North Seas as well as in the Arctic, with a focus on chemical discharges. Chemical discharges from shipping are much less regulated than e.g., emissions on land, despite the many cruise liners, cargo and passenger ships, ferries and leisure boats that populate Danish and Greenlandic coastal waters and harbors. The discharges from these vessels through, e.g., scrubber water, bilge water or grey sewage water as well as potential accidental spills of e.g., new types of fuels, release a complex mixture of metals, oil and PAHs, nutrients and emerging contaminants to the marine environment, with largely unknown effects. The lacking knowledge on the cumulative effects of these contaminants on marine environment is hampering the advances in risk assessments and environmental management of maritime activities. The aim of this PhD is to create a mechanistic understanding of the cumulative stressor effects, organismal tolerances and the role of environmental factors, which are needed to assess the environmental risks of shipping under global change. The project may focus on the potential effects of spills and operational discharges of new types of fuels (such as ammonium and methanol), emerging contaminants (such as lubricants) or different types of sewage water discharges, although also other types of chemical stressors can be considered. Since the ecosystem effects of contaminants are likely to vary considerably depending on the environmental conditions (e.g., temperature, productivity, salinity or pH) and the tolerances of species, considering the traits of the species and properties of the receiving ecosystem are an important aspect of the project.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Scholarship in Experimental and Theoretical Terahertz Spectroscopy of Weakly Bound Cluster Molecules – DTU Chemistry
A three-year PhD scholarship concerned with dedicated investigations of (bio)molecular recognition mechanisms by combining experimental broadband laser and interferometric THz spectroscopy and novel quantum chemical modelling of weakly bound cluster molecules is available at DTU Chemistry under the supervision of Associate Professor René Wugt Larsen. The PhD scholarship is available from January 1st, 2024, or as soon as possible thereafter. The aim of the PhD project is to combine novel laser and interferometric THz cluster spectroscopic investigations with advanced quantum chemical modeling approaches in the exploration of the driving forces associated with fundamental (bio)molecular recognition mechanisms for organic molecules with functional groups representative for biological systems. The non-covalent intermolecular forces stabilizing weakly bound cluster molecules are much weaker than covalent bonds and the class of transitions associated with large-amplitude intermolecular vibrational motion introduced by molecular complexation is observed in the technologically challenging THz spectral region. THz spectral signatures of weakly bound cluster molecules will enable the characterization of intermolecular potential energy landscapes involved in the molecular recognition mechanisms with unprecedented accuracy and yield rigorous benchmarks for quantum chemical methodologies and molecular docking tools.

The GHG observation system contributes to the green transition of Denmark. You will work on a novel technique that allows observing fluxes of greenhouse gasses (GHG) in the atmospheric boundary layer in a suburban area around the City of Copenhagen. The scientific task is both technically and theoretically demanding and requires understanding of boundary layer processes and the technological and natural processes that govern GHG emissions and sequestration in a city. You will contribute to the construction, test and application of the new multiple gas, tall tower turbulent gas flux observation system for the main long-living GHG: CO2, CH4 and N2O and other relevant indicator gasses, which is based on the eddy covariance technology. The scientific novelty lies in the attribution of the measured fluxes to processes in the city and to identify GHG emission dynamics and hotspots and hot moments as well as CO2 sequestration sites and processes. We aim at providing scientific data to determine the actual GHG emissions, which will show in the long-term the success of the green transition towards sustainable development in Denmark.

PhD position summary/title: PhD scholarship in Physical Chemistry and Bioscience – DTU Chemistry
The Department of Chemistry at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is offering a 3-year PhD scholarship in the field of Physical Chemistry and Bioscience. The project will be carried out as a collaboration between DTU Chemistry, DTU Chemical Engineering, Novozymes A/S, and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Michigan State University. The main objective of this project is to investigate and understand the behavior of enzymes at gas-liquid interfaces, particularly focusing on bubbles, utilizing advanced computer simulation techniques. In various reactor setups, such as those where substrate gases like oxygen are introduced, enzymes come into direct contact with gas bubbles. When enzymes adhere to such gas-liquid interfaces, it can lead to their unfolding, resulting in a loss of their functional properties. To address this challenge, we will employ sophisticated computational simulation techniques to explore how enzymes interact with gas-liquid interfaces. This investigation will involve monitoring changes in the structural and dynamic properties of enzymes as they adsorb to bubbles of varying sizes and compositions. The insights obtained from these simulations will be compared and aligned with experimental data provided by DTU Chemical Engineering. These experiments will be conducted under carefully controlled conditions in a specially designed reactor, enabling us to quantify the amount and size of gas bubbles while preserving enzyme activity and stability. The ultimate goal of this collaborative effort is to establish strong connections between experimental observations and simulation outcomes. This alignment will be instrumental in developing a novel predictive tool capable of forecasting enzyme activity maintenance under specific conditions.
