(16) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD fellowship in “Bacterial Antibiotic Resistance Mechanisms”

The β-lactam class of antibiotics stands out as the most widely used antimicrobial drug worldwide. Bacteria become resistant to β-lactams through horizontal acquisition of resistance genes, however, “intrinsic” bacterial factors encoded by the core genome are needed for resistance to be expressed.  In this PhD project we will use an array of genetic, biochemical, biophysical and microscopy techniques to investigate the molecular cross-talk between resistance genes and intrinsic factors. Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) will be the preferred model organism and the goal is to find helper compounds that restore antibiotic sensitivity in MRSA. Planned research visits go to University of Amsterdam and industrial partner, NAICONS (Milan, Italy).

(17) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD Fellow in Explainable Natural Language Understanding

The PhD fellowship is offered in the context of an ERC Starting Grant held by Isabelle Augenstein on ‘Explainable and Robust Automatic Fact Checking (ExplainYourself)’. ERC Starting Grant is a highly competitive funding program by the European Research Council to support the most talented early-career scientists in Europe with funding for a period of 5 years for blue-skies research to build up or expand their research groups.

ExplainYourself proposes to study explainable automatic fact checking, the task of automatically predicting the veracity of textual claims using machine learning (ML) methods, while also producing explanations about how the model arrived at the prediction. Automatic fact checking methods often use opaque deep neural network models, whose inner workings cannot easily be explained. Especially for complex tasks such as automatic fact checking, this hinders greater adoption, as it is unclear to users when the models’ predictions can be trusted. Existing explainable ML methods partly overcome this by reducing the task of explanation generation to highlighting the right rationale. While a good first step, this does not fully explain how a ML model arrived at a prediction. For knowledge intensive natural language understanding (NLU) tasks such as fact checking, a ML model needs to learn complex relationships between the claim, multiple evidence documents, and commonsense knowledge in addition to retrieving the right evidence. There is currently no explainability method that aims to illuminate this highly complex process. In addition, existing approaches are unable to produce diverse explanations, geared towards users with different information needs. ExplainYourself radically departs from existing work in proposing methods for explainable fact checking that more accurately reflect how fact checking models make decisions, and are useful to diverse groups of end users. It is expected that these innovations will apply to explanation generation for other knowledge-intensive NLU tasks, such as question answering or entity linking.

(22) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD fellowship in Biology of phage and antibiotic resistance in Staphylococcus aureus

Phages are viruses that infect and kill bacteria and phage therapy is considered an alternative for treatment of bacterial infections caused by antibiotic resistant pathogens. However, bacteria can become resistant to phages and a central question is how this affects antibiotic susceptibility. In this project we will examine links between bacterial resistance to phages and antibiotics for the human pathogen, Staphylococcus aureus, including the role of anti-phage systems such as CRISPR-Cas. We will also examine how simple changes in bacterial gene expression may affect phage and antibiotic tolerance under varying conditions such as those found in vivo. The project will involve a variety of microbiological, genetic, and biochemical techniques including genome and RNA sequencing and state-of-the-art tools for investigating phages. Also, it will involve two research stays in project partner laboratories. Ultimately the goal is to enhance our understanding of phage-bacterium interactions and apply the knowledge to new therapeutic solutions to address the challenge posed by antibiotic resistant pathogens.

About The University of Copenhagen, Denmark – Official Website

The University of Copenhagen is a public research university in Copenhagen, Denmark. Founded in 1479, the University of Copenhagen is the second-oldest university in Scandinavia, and ranks as one of the top universities in the Nordic countries and Europe.

Its establishment sanctioned by Pope Sixtus IV, the University of Copenhagen was founded by Christian I of Denmark as a Catholic teaching institution with a predominantly theological focus. In 1537, it was re-established by King Christian III as part of the Lutheran Reformation. Up until the 18th century, the university was primarily concerned with educating clergymen. Through various reforms in the 18th and 19th century, the University of Copenhagen was transformed into a modern, secular university, with science and the humanities replacing theology as the main subjects studied and taught.

The University of Copenhagen consists of six different faculties, with teaching taking place in its four distinct campuses, all situated in Copenhagen. The university operates 36 different departments and 122 separate research centres in Copenhagen, as well as a number of museums and botanical gardens in and outside the Danish capital. The University of Copenhagen also owns and operates multiple research stations around Denmark, with two additional ones located in Greenland. Additionally, The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences and the public hospitals of the Capital and Zealand Region of Denmark constitute the conglomerate Copenhagen University Hospital.

A number of prominent scientific theories and schools of thought are namesakes of the University of Copenhagen. The famous Copenhagen Interpretation of quantum mechanics was conceived at the Niels Bohr Institute, which is part of the university. The Department of Political Science birthed the Copenhagen School of Security Studies, which is also named after the university. Others include the Copenhagen School of Theology and the Copenhagen School of Linguistics.
