PhD position summary/title:  POLLEN DEVELOPMENT UNDER CHANGING CLIMATE CONDITIONS

Heat waves have become a common occurrence that is seriously affecting the production of seeds and fruits, and in general agricultural productivity. Even very short periods of high temperatures during sexual reproduction have already a devastating impact. Why in particular the process of meiosis and gamete development are highly sensitive to heat is an important unanswered question in plant biology. Horticell investigates the underlying molecular processes that are the cause for heat inflicted loss of fertility, and in this context, we identified several genetic factors involved. The proposed PhD project dives into the study of these genes with the aim to reveal how the reproductive system responds to heat stress and what signaling and repair pathways are being activated to mitigate the damage. By investigating one of the genes involved, we identified a new mechanism that plants, and possibly even other eukaryote organisms, use to cope with heat stress. The goal of the PhD project is to determine what molecular processes get activated to avoid or overcame cellular damage in male meiosis and microspores. The results are highly valuable to adjust crop cultivation methods and to design genome selection schemes in plant breeding programs.

PhD position summary/title: 

Plant tissue culture and regeneration is used to propagate selected plant material, to create transgenic crops, to preserve species and varieties, and to rescue or select unique genotypes for breeding. While this method works well from some crops, many plant species and varieties are rather difficult to regenerate. Researchers vary the media composition and hormones to obtain a successful protocol. However, environmental factors such as temperature are also important. In recent years it has been shown that high temperature conditions can improve the efficiency of plant regeneration. We want to know how heat stress regimes increase the competence of callus to regenerate. In this project, we investigate HEAT SHOCK FACTORS (HSF) transcription factors and how they are involved in shoot regeneration from callus. The HSF, co-regulator, and the regulatory network responsible for improved regeneration under high temperature will be studied. The results of this project will provide a better insight in how temperature can be implemented to optimize regeneration.

PhD position summary/title: Department of Electromechanical, Systems and Metal Engineering

Context –51% of electric motor failures are caused by bearing failure according to [Tong2014, Xie2020]. About 9% of such bearing failures are attributed to harmful electrical bearing currents. Recently introduced SiC or GaN power electronic switches can realize extremely fast switching, inducing electric bearing currents. Such currents are most prevalent for high-power applications where the conversion from electrical to mechanical energy (e.g. vehicles, air compressors) or vice versa (e.g. a wind turbine) needs to be as performant and efficient as possible. This results in a growing need for integrators of electrical drivetrains and manufacturers of electric drivetrain components to know the impact of the power inverter on potential bearing damage.

Context – Today, the Belgian installed offshore wind capacity is about 2.26 GW, representing about 10% of the total yearly electricity demand in Belgium. The announced increase in offshore wind capacity with another 3.5 GW will almost be tripling this capacity by 2030 with an estimated 250 new high-power (and larger) turbines. It is crucial that the stability of the offshore energy supply by existing and future wind parks is maximal, imposing new challenges concerning the design, operation and maintenance of the structures, drivetrain and last but not least the blades. Offshore wind parks benefit from the high wind power density at sea, but on the downside, the turbines are fully exposed to extreme weather conditions, e.g., wind gusts, hail, rain and seawater spray/aerosols.

PhD position summary/title: Department of Electromechanical, Systems and Metal Engineering

Context – High-performant and power-dense electromechanical systems (e.g. weaving looms, compressors, gearboxes, drivetrains, …) need oil lubrication to reduce friction and resulting wear in rolling element bearings to efficiently dissipate heat from the contact points. On the one hand, these systems contain multiple oil-lubricated bearings of various types, which typically operate under different and/or varying conditions (load, speed, temperature). Ideally, the lubrication properties have been adapted to these operating conditions. However, in practice each individual bearing operates under suboptimal lubrication conditions, leading globally to an increased Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) due to reduced energy efficiency, reduced component lifetime and increased maintenance and downtime.

The work will be based on field research, archival research, and collection research. The researcher will trace the history of the murals in the “contact” zone of colonial society. Instead of focusing on the colonial patronage that helped to reinvigorate mural painting traditions on several occasions, more attention will be given to the local networks in which artists operated. The aim is to retrieve biographical data on the artists and to ascertain how they built on an earlier tradition and how and from whom they learned their skills. The researcher will compare the murals with carved objects of figurative and geometric scenes and photographs of pre-colonial rock art.
You will contribute to public outreach activities including education based on your research.

Silver (Ag) is a widely used antimicrobial compound with substantial releases to surface water, that can be toxic to aquatic organisms in the nanogram per liter range. For this reason, the European Commission has recently listed Ag as a priority pollutant under the Water Framework Directive, and proposed an environmental quality standard (EQS) of 10 ng/L. As for other metals, it is known that certain water quality variables such as pH, and dissolved organic carbon (DOC) concentration, can affect bioavailability and toxicity by more than 100-fold. However, there is a lack of experimental data and models to predict chronic silver toxicity to aquatic organisms.

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.
