Contact - Job content
The postdoc position is part of a 5-year Advanced Grant that is financed by the European Research Council (ERC) and lead by Professor Dan Zahavi.

The larger project investigates what it means to feel, think, and act as part of a we. Its guiding hypothesis is that a systematic account of the we must be embedded in a more comprehensive investigation of selfhood and social cognition. The project will systematically develop this hypothesis by combining cross-disciplinary theorizing with historical scholarship. In particular, it will draw on seminal contributions from classical phenomenology. In addition to philosophers, the project will also involve social scientists (from social anthropology, sociology, clinical psychology, and political theory).

The postdoc should be a philosopher who has worked on the philosophy of the social sciences and who is familiar with the ongoing debate between methodological individualists and methodological holists concerning the relation between self and society. During the employment, the candidate should focus on the question of how social theory should navigate between an undersocialized and an oversocialized account of human subjectivity (e.g., rational choice theory and social constructivism). Potential applicants are encouraged to contact Dan Zahavi,, for more information about the Who are we? project, since their submitted research plan is supposed to be situated and developed within the framework of the larger project.

The post.doc is supposed to spend 20% of the employment teaching at the Department of Communication, and it will be an asset if the candidate can teach theoretical philosophy.

Qualification requirements
In order to be considered for the position, applicants must have research qualifications at least corresponding to what can be achieved as part of a successfully completed PhD in philosophy. It is expected that the successful candidate will be present, part of the team, and partake in the activities at CFS on a daily basis.

Furthermore, emphasis will be placed on the following:

Research qualifications, which will be assessed in relation to the period of active research, the degree of originality, and academic output.
The applicant’s scientific record, academic breadth and depth, rigor, thoroughness and accuracy, as well as academic relevance in relation to the job description.
Participation in networks – national and international
Previous experience with interdisciplinary collaboration and research
Expertise in philosophy of the social sciences is essential. Some familiarity with phenomenology would be an additional asset

Internship proposal (description and expected training outcomes / 15 lines max):

A large quantity of medical data is routinely acquired in hospitals, but accurate and patient-tailored analysis of these data by specialists is often impossible due to technical constraints and limited time. We developed mathematical models to automatically analyse physiological data such as electroencephalographic recordings (EEG), extracting information that can help practitioners in the decision making. To deploy this novel approach, we need to provide an easily accessible software as a service (SaaS) application that will allow to load patient data and obtain personalized reports and predictions.

Goal: Developing a SaaS for EEG analysis
The candidate will contribute to the development of a SaaS product addressed to medical doctors. The application will implement models to analyze the brain activity based on EEG and extract variables of interest. A web interface will allow access to the results of mathematical analysis and provide user-friendly visualizations.

FranceBrain and Spine Institute (ICM) - ParisNeuroRemod - Mechanisms of Neuronal Network Remodeling in the Adult Mammalian BrainNicolas RenierWebsite
Analysis of adult brain plasticity - In the adult brain, connections between neurons are mostly stable. However, we are still able to learn or adapt to changes in our environment or physiological states. Learning and adaptation in the adult brain are thought to be mainly driven at the microscopic scale by changes in synaptic strength or recycling of the synapses. However, synaptic plasticity can only modulate communications between neurons whose branches are spatially close.

It is known that, to a limited extend, mature neurons can add or remove branches to their existing tree. This is an important notion, as this could dramatically expand the number of potentiel partners a neuron could talk to in the network. It could also condition the ability of certain neurons to repair the network after lesions.

Very little is known on the molecular control and the functional implication of long-term and large scale neuronal branch dynamics in the adult brain.

It is challenging to study this phenomenon, as it likely happens in a few neurons in the dense meshwork of the brain. To enhance our capabilities to document axon remodeling in the adult brain, we design assays based on mouse genetics and cutting-edge imaging techniques.

We are looking for individuals with knowledge in either of these fields: image analysis, transcriptomic analysis, and / or mouse behavior analysis.

Data analysis - Being forbidden in the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics, lepton flavor violating decays are among the most powerful probes to search for physics beyond the SM. In view of the recent anomalies seen by LHCb on tests of lepton flavor universality in \( b\to s \ell \ell\) and \( b \to c \ell \nu\) processes, the interest of lepton flavor violating decays involving tau leptons in the initial or final state has been greatly reinforced. In particular, several new physics models predict branching fractions of \( \tau \to \phi\mu\) and \(B \to K\tau\mu \) decays just below the current experimental limits.

The Belle II experiment located at KEK, Japan, started to take data in 2019, aiming at collecting 50 times more data than its predecessor, Belle, by 2031. Thanks to its clean environment and high ?+?- cross section, it provides an ideal environment to study decays with tau leptons. The goal of this phD is to exploit the Belle II data in order to obtain the best experimental limits on lepton flavor violating decays such as \(B \to \tau\ell X\), where X is a hadronic system and \( \ell\) an electron or a muon.

Data analysis, participation to data taking, participation to Belle II service tasks, activities of outreach and dissemination.

Postdoctoral position in experimental, laser-driven laboratory astrophysics at LULI (Ecole Polytechnique, France) - The context is the one of the ERC Advanced project “GENESIS”, outlined in Ref. [1], which involves activities both in high-energy density and relativistic plasmas. The project aims at advancing our knowledge on nuclear reaction cross-sections that are at play in nucleosynthesis reactions in extreme astrophysical phenomena, using next-generation high-power lasers, like the “Apollon” laser facility [2].
The project thus will involve performing experiments using astrophysically-scaled plasmas [3,4,5] and develop high-density particle beams based on lasers [2,6] in order to study the underlying mechanisms at play in nucleosynthesis-prone environments. The candidate will thus take the responsibility of designing, fielding, executing and analysing the experiments. The responsibility will also involve teaming up with the PhD students involved in the project, the external collaborators working on the project, as well as interacting with the other post-doctoral associates working with advanced numerical simulations in order to analyse hand-in-hand the results.
The position is with a contract duration of two years (the exact
dates can be negotiated). The research work will be mainly carried out at LULI (Ecole polytechnique, near Paris, France), using in-house laser facilities (LULI2000, and Apollon) with as
well as stays abroad for experiments at users’ facilities. The salary will depend on education and
years of experience. A PhD in experimental plasma physics, nuclear physics or a related field is required. Candidates should send their applications electronically, including a CV, a publication list and a statement of research interests, and provide contact information for references. Note that access to LULI is restricted to certain nationalities.

FranceUniversity of Orleans - OrléansTRACE-it - Controlling particle flow driven by local concentration gradients in geological porous mediaSophie RomanWebsite
Particle transport by diffusiophoresis in porous media - ERC project “TRACE-it” (2022-2027), summary:

Many engineering applications foreseen the usage of small particles for groundwater remediation or for sealing damaged geological confinement barriers, however, delivering materials to a contaminated or damaged region is challenging. TRACE-it aims at controlling the flow of colloidal particles in subsurface geological environments using in situ solute concentration gradients. The phenomenon, known as diffusiophoresis, has a tremendous potential to move colloids to regions that are inaccessible by conventional transport. Diffusiophoretic transport in porous media, however, has received very little attention so far, especially in standard transport in porous media models where it remains unconsidered.
What is the magnitude and location of solute concentration gradients produced during subsurface processes? How to use these gradients to transport colloids towards target regions? The answers will be found through a combined experimental-modelling approach to: (i) measure coupled hydro-electro-chemical dynamics, (ii) characterize concentration gradients generated in situ in geological porous media, (iii) identify the influence of concentration gradients on particle transport and develop a macroscale model of transport in porous media that includes diffusiophoresis. TRACE-it integrates the usage of microfluidic experiments, observation techniques, and multi-scale computational fluid dynamics to describe the transport mechanisms at the pore-scale before upscaling to the continuum-scale.
The experimental-modelling toolset will open new ways for moving colloidal particles by sensing chemical gradients generated naturally or from human activity, leading them to their target such as oil, contaminants, or reacting minerals. During column-scale experiments, controlling colloid transport will be achieved through the characterization of solute concentration gradients and the use of specifically designed particles.

Role of the PhD student:

The objective is to describe diffusiophoretic transport of colloids in porous media at the pore-scale, and to include diffusiophoresis in transport models at the macroscale. Given the state-of-the-art on diffusiophoretic transport, a description of this phenomenon in complex geometries is needed. Besides, in current diffusiophoresis models the distribution of chemical concentrations relies on oversimplified models, e.g. linear concentration profile in a straight channel. In this work, for the first time, we will couple solute distributions predicted for subsurface processes (task done in parallel of the PhD work) and diffusiophoretic transport, at the pore-scale and at the macroscale.
The PhD candidate will study the transport of particles having different properties in terms of radius and surface charges in porous media of well-controlled geometry, subject to chemical gradients. We will start with rigid spherical particles, then extending to porous, soft particles, or droplets. A numerical model will be developed that couples fluid/solute/particle dynamics, it will be compared with experimental microfluidic data through an iterative process: from single pores, to network of pores, to macroscale models.

FranceNational Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) - BordeauxcofacTau - Cofactors at the core of tau prion behaviorYann FichouWebsite
The tau protein is an intrinsically disordered protein present in the brain where it regulates the microtubule activity. Tau is directly implicated in several neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's disease. In these diseases, called tauopathies, tau aggregates into so-called amyloid filaments, which are deleterious for the survival of neurons and can spread throughout the brain. Our group studies the formation of these aggregates and more generally the molecular basis of tauopathies.

This project aims to study the mechanisms of tau protein aggregation induced by different co-factors. In particular, we are interested in the molecular factors that modulate the structure and the pathological activity of the tau aggregates. During this thesis, the candidate will (i) express and purify several versions of the tau protein (whole, truncated, mutated...) (ii) perform aggregation tests under different conditions representing pathological situations and (iii) perform morphological and structural characterizations. The main methods used will be fluorescence spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopies, atomic force microscopy (AFM) and electron microscopy. This thesis, funded by an ERC European project, will be carried out in a multidisciplinary context involving several national and international collaborations.

The candidate should have a background in biology/biochemistry/biophysics/physical chemistry, should be highly motivated, curious, autonomous and have a good sense of teamwork. An interest in molecular sciences is essential and a first experience in protein production will be appreciated.

GermanyMax Planck Society - FreiburgEpiRIME - Epigenetic Reprogramming, Inheritance and Memory: Dissect epigenetic transitions at fertilisation and early embryogenesisNicola IovinoWebsite
Fertilization occurs when the two gametes, after epigenetic reprogramming, fuse to produce a totipotent zygote. Although any defects in gametes’ reprogramming can cause infertility, the mechanisms underlying this process, remain poorly understood.
Our lab now focuses on understanding the epigenetic events contributing to the formation of functional gametes, to the establishment of totipotency, to the conversion of the totipotent zygote’s quiescent genome into a transcriptionally competent one and to the 3D genome organization in the nucleus.
We recently showed that H3K27me3 repressive histone mark is retained on post-meiotic oocytes and it is intergenerationally transmitted from the germline to the early embryo. The maternally inherited H3K27me3 regulates the activation of enhancers and lineage-specific genes during development. Thus, we suggest that H3K27me3 serve as a template of epigenetic memory that can be transferred through the maternal germline and instruct the developmental program of the next generation.
Chromatin inside the nucleus is also organized in complex hierarchical folding patterns, including chromatin loops, topologically associating domains (TADs) and compartmental domains. We discovered a novel and fundamental role for HP1a in the reorganization of chromatin after fertilization. We show that HP1a i) controls the general folding of chromosome arms, ii) controls the clustering and compaction of heterochromatic pericentromeric regions and iii) contribute to the formation of the B compartment. Unexpectedly, we also discovered that the A compartment is generated through an HP1a-independent mechanism.

Experimental Condensed Matter Physics - In the Department of Physics, University of Mainz, a PhD position is immediately available in the field of
spintronics with magnetic skyrmions (topologically protected magnetic textures) in a collaboration with the
Technical University Kaiserslautern. In particular, we are studying the dynamic formation and excitation of
magnetic skyrmions in the framework of a TopDyn excellence project (
Magnetic skyrmions can form regular artificial crystalline structures in thin film multilayers as we have
demonstrated (Nature Mater. (2016)). These structures provide the necessary spin-orbit-interaction and
symmetry breaking stabilizing skyrmions with diameters in the nanometer to micrometer range at ambient
conditions. Because the film thicknesses are substantially smaller than the skyrmion diameter, the skyrmions
in these heterostructures are essentially 2D objects exhibiting topological phase transitions (Nature Nanotech.
(2019); Adv. Funct. Mater. (2019)). Such two-dimensional magnetic skyrmions can be manipulated by
electrical currents (Nature Phys. (2017)) and the topological stabilization of the skyrmions combined with
their small size make them interesting candidates for novel memory devices (Nature Electron. (2020)).
During the PhD, the successful applicant will perform experiments combined with a theoretical understanding
to establish the dynamic formation and control the ordering of skyrmions. The very active field of skyrmionics
offers great possibilities for scientific exchange with national and international collaborators.
Our lab combines advanced fabrication techniques (full clean room with lithography and pattern transfer
techniques), advanced materials deposition tools (molecular beam epitaxy, sputtering, pulsed laser deposition,
etc.) with sophisticated characterization techniques. Optical Kerr- and dynamical X-ray - based microscopy
will be combined with broadband magnetic resonance techniques in collaboration with the TU Kaiserslautern.
While the project will be hosted by the University of Mainz, the candidate will work closely together with the
group of Prof. Dr. M. Weiler at the TU Kaiserslautern and parts of the experimental work will be carried out
in Kaiserslautern making use of the unique dynamic FMR and BLS spectroscopy tools. The PhD candidate
should preferentially have a condensed matter physics background.
The physics department at the University of Mainz has been consistently ranked as one of the leading physics
departments in Germany. In the recent 2017 Shanghai and CHE rankings it was selected for the excellence
group in Europe and in 2018 and 2021 Physics in Mainz was ranked #1 in Germany by the German Research
Foundation. It is particularly strong in the area of condensed matter physics / material sciences. The University
of Mainz houses the Excellence Centre TopDyn and together with the TU Kaiserslautern, the University of
Mainz hosts the national German Collaborative Research Centre on Spintronics “Spin+X”.
Excellent students can additionally apply to the Max Planck Graduate Centre that provides an interdisciplinary
Graduate Education experience with tailor-made training and a range of additional support measures.

experimental physical chemistry - Our research focusses on the investigation of the dynamic restructuring of functional nanomaterials under realistic conditions, e.g. model catalysts under a reactive gas atmosphere. To this purpose, we place a scanning tunneling microscope (STM) with high temporal and spatial resolution directly into gas mixtures at near ambient pressures (also called NAP-STM) and thus investigate how the structure of particles (metal clusters) and oxide supports changes under these conditions. By using size-selected clusters (i.e. small particles with a precisely defined number of atoms), it is possible to investigate how the formation and decay of highly reactive particle structures occurs, can be controlled and how such structural changes influence the function of a material. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy under identical conditions (NAP-XPS) provides complementary information about the chemical and charge state of the materials, which we correlate with the structural and dynamic information from NAP-STM.

education and research experience in biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics and/or cell biology needed; knowledge in bioinformatics welcome - Research to elucidate the process of nuclear mRNP assembly
Overall project:
An important step of gene expression is the formation of a messenger ribonucleoprotein particle
(mRNP). The messenger RNA (mRNA) is synthesized by RNA polymerase II transcribing a
protein-coding gene. The mRNA is processed, i.e. capped, spliced and polyadenylated, and
packaged into an mRNP by binding of RNA-binding proteins (RBPs). The RBPs bound to the
mRNA are essential for the stability of the mRNP, control nuclear mRNA export and often
determine cytoplasmic processes such as mRNA localization, translation and decay. Thus, the
formation and composition of an mRNP is important for the posttranscriptional control of gene
expression. Despite its essential nature, the mechanism of nuclear mRNP packaging and the
architecture of an mRNP are still poorly understood due to the fact that mRNPs contain many
different mRNAs. The overall goal of this proposal is to elucidate the mechanism of mRNP
formation and the molecular structure of an mRNP. Specifically,
in aim 1, we will determine and quantify the protein composition of a specific mRNP including
different stages during its biogenesis,
in aim 2, we will illuminate the molecular mechanism of mRNP packaging and
in aim 3, we will elucidate the architecture of an mRNP by cross-linking mass spectrometry
and electron microscopy.
These aims will be achieved by combining novel RNP purification strategies and the powerful
biochemistry of the model organism S. cerevisiae to purify a specific mRNP with recent advances
in high-end mass spectrometry and electron microscopy. In summary, the expected results of this
project will show the architecture of an mRNP in its dynamic nature. mRNP packaging will be
understood for the first time on a mechanistic as well as structural level. Thus, the results of this
project will break new ground in our understanding of this fundamental cellular process and will
also provide insights into how defects in this process lead to disease.
GermanyUniversity of Konstanz - KonstanzAMP-Alarm - Diadenosine Polyphosphate Alarmones as Drivers for Protein AMPylationAndreas Marx, Prof. Dr.Website
Research at the Interface of Chemistry and Biology (Chemical Biology, Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry) - Project description:
It is puzzling that the human genome has only slightly more genes than the fruit fly and only half the number of cauliflower. Obviously, the sheer number of genes alone cannot determine the complexity of human development and the sophisticated signalling systems that maintain homeostasis. In fact, the complexity of information from genome to proteome is greatly increased. Drivers for the complexity of the proteome are posttranslational modifications (PTMs), i.e. covalent modifications of polypeptides after translation.
The aim of this project is to shine light on a scientific mystery known for decades. We will elucidate the cellular roles and functions of diadenosine polyphosphates (ApnAs), which are formed in response to stress and are therefore called "alarmones", and their interactions with the PTM processes "AMPylation", i.e. the covalent modification of the target protein by adenosine monophosphate. Although both topics are known for more than 60 years, their molecular mechanism and functions are poorly understood.
Based on our preliminary results, which unambiguously show the interplay of ApnAs and AMPylation for the first time, we will search for, identify and characterize new protagonists of AMPylation and clarify their interactions with ApnAs. Therefore, new chemical tools will be developed and applied in the proteome-wide studies in living cells.
We will also investigate the molecular function of a protein that we have already identified with ApnA-based probes. We have discovered that this protein is a "5'-3' RNA ligase", the first one found in human cells! The available data indicates the involvement of this RNA ligase in cancer and neurodegeneration, and we will therefore elucidate the molecular mechanisms and functions of this protein in detail.
Overall, this project will bring significant new and previously unexplored advances and will provide a guideline for future translational research in the fight against diseases.

GermanyLMU Munich - MünchenBaby DCs - Age-dependent Regulation of Dendritic Cell Development and Function Barbara SchramlWebsite
Dendritic cells are key activators of immunity that in neonates are qualitatively distinct from adults. In early life, dendritic cells are therefore often considered underdeveloped or functionally immature. We have found that despite exhibiting age-dependent differences in cell function some dendritic cell subtypes in early life are fully competent to induce T cell responses (Papaioannou et al, NComms, 2021). We currently investigate the molecular mechanisms underlying the age-dependent functional regulation of dendritic cells, as well as environmental factors influencing this process. Techniques used in the lab include high dimensional single cell technology (flow cytometry and transcriptomics), bulk transcriptomics, microscopy and we work with lineage specific knock out mice. We are looking for a motivated scientists to help us understand these questions. Experience in any of the above techniques would be useful. Candidates with a background in bioinformatics are also welcome to apply.

- Curiosity and a scientific mindset - In this project we explore high-Q nonlinear optical microresonator laser frequency combs as a key-technology for the detection of habitable "Earth-like" exo-planets.

Extrasolar planets (exo-planets) can be found by observing Doppler-frequency shifts in the spectra of their host stars. However, these Doppler-shifts are so tiny that they can only be detected by cutting edge laser frequency comb technology (astrocombs)¹ in conjunction with advanced astronomical spectrometers.

Microresonator-based, chip-integrated comb sources², elegantly generate laser frequency comb spectra that can serve as an ideal and precise reference to which the stellar spectrum can be compared and monitored³.

The PhD thesis will explore and demonstrate microresonator astrocombs, combining experimental, numerical and analytical techniques at the forefront of photonic technology, ultrafast lasers and nonlinear optics. It includes the design of integrated photonic circuits and advanced stabilized microphotonic laser systems³, as well as, experiments and tests in the laboratory and at astronomical observatories.

Background and Degree in Chemistry (ideally Polymers or Organometallic Catalysis) - Project Summary. Plastics are essential to virtually any modern technology and therefore ubiquitious. However, when released to the environment they can persist for centuries. One pillar of a responsible future economy is therefore to endow important plastics with a non-persistent nature. Polyethylene (PE) is the largest scale synthetic material, used in transportation, energy storage, water cleaning, clothing and many other fields. However, it is most problematic concerning degradability. This project addresses this major challenge by introducing photo- and hydrolytically degradable groups in the PE chain. Directly during catalytic PE synthesis, isolated keto groups are generated by incorporation of small amounts of carbon monoxide. This goal is targeted via catalysts with extreme shieldin, rigid ligand environments and additional functionalities in Ni(II) catalysts. Living catalytic polymerization in nanoparticles are pursued to achieve ultra high molecular weights and gradient PE chains forming nanodomains. Further types of hydrolytically cleavable groups are targeted via the complementary synthetic approach of step growth from seed- or microalgae-oil derived PE-telechelics. This yields linear PE with in-chain carbonate, acetal and ester groups. Basic materials properties of all polymers are determined by tensile tests. Degradation studies reflecting a marine environment will indicate the persistency behaviour and fate of microfragments, using macroscopic specimens and the above particles as models. Knowledge of the particle and bulk morphologies is also instrumental to understand the materials and degradation properties.

IsraelTechnion - Israel Institute of Technology - HaifaRiboFriend - Deciphering co-translational protein folding, assembly and quality control pathways, in health and diseaseAyala ShiberWebsite
The majority of cellular proteins do not function alone; they often act together in complexes to achieve concerted functions.

Despite the prevalence of protein complexes, very little is known of the mechanisms that ensure their correct folding and assembly.

The importance of the folding and assembly challenge is underscored by the growing number of misfolding diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. All of which are characterized by the accumulation of misfolded proteins in aggregates.

Here we study how do proteins form, fold and assemble into functional complexes in our cells, what mechanisms facilitate and protect them from aggregation, neurodegeneration, and aging.

Our key questions:

How are nanomachines formed in our cells?
How do ribosomes go beyond synthesis to direct the polypeptide-chain folding and assembly?
How do “lonely” proteins find their complex and pathway partners?
What co-translational mechanisms protect them from misfolding?
What co-translational mechanisms degrade “lonely” proteins?
Do mRNA subcellular organization facilitate complex assembly?
The lab combines a variety of approaches including:
Advanced genetics (Next- Generation Sequencing), Biochemistry and Cell biology, using the awesome power of yeast as a model organism as well as cell culture.

The lab combines a variety of highly advanced methodologies including:

Selective Ribosome Profiling – capturing the ribosomes engaged by target proteins, in codon resolution
Single-molecule Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) for imaging mRNAs in the cell
Developing novel techniques for single-molecule capturing of protein-mRNA interactions

Post doctoral and PhD open positions: The Koren Lab, Lab focus: Systematic investigation of the specificity of degradation pathways with implication to human disease - Projects description:
The Koren lab at BIU is seeking creative and dedicated scientists to join our team. Our laboratory focus is on systematic investigation of the specificity of protein degradation pathways with implication to human disease. Our genome-wide approach that monitors the mammalian proteome turn-over in real time created a new field of investigation for biological systems, setting a new dimension that has yet to be explored. In particular, we are interested in comprehensive characterization of sequences regulating proteolysis and match them with the degradation mechanisms controlling them. In addition, we investigate protein quality control pathways activated by cells to maintain protein homeostasis and how abbreviation in these pathways lead to disease.
You will have the opportunity to perform cutting-edge studies using high-throughput approaches. We use genetics (CRISPR screens) coupled with synthetic biology (high density oligonucleotide libraries synthesis), biochemistry, cell biology and systems biology approaches to obtain a global view of degradation pathways. More specifically, we:
1. Investigate how the degradation machineries of the cell specifically recognize and target substrates;
2. Characterize protein quality control pathways activated by cells to maintain protein homeostasis;
3. Explore the involvement of specific degradation machineries in various biological processes including receptor trafficking and turnover, organelle protein targeting, antigen presentation and more.
4. Elucidate how defects in protein degradation mechanisms result in disease such as cancer or neurodegeneration.

We are looking for talented, curious and motivated post doctoral fellows and PhD students with experimental and/or computational expertise to join us.

Research in computational biology / cancer biology - Our lab combines cutting edge experimental techniques with big-data analytical approaches to systematically study the role of epigenetic alterations at regulatory DNA drive cancer in cancer initiation and progression. We currently focus on two types of regulatory DNA elements: enhancers (regulating transcription), and CTCF binding sites (regulating chromosomal topology, i.e. the folding of the chromosome in 3D).

We have previously demonstrated that aberrant DNA methylation of CTCF binding sites in IDH-mutant glioma [1] and SDH deficient gastrointestinal stromal tumors [2] perturbs chromosomal topology to drive tumorigenesis. We are now extending this framework across cancer to test the interplay between metabolism, epigenetics, chromosome topology and gene regulation, and its dysregulation across different types of cancer. We are also utilizing enhancer and transcriptional characterization of tumors to reconstruct the transcriptional regulatory networks that drive cancer initiation, progression and response to therapy, and infer clinically relevant biomarkers and drug targets (as we have previously demonstrated, e.g. [3,4]).

We are looking for talented and motivated research associate (PhD student / postdoc / similar) to join our team. Prospective candidates should have knowledge and experience in molecular biology and/or computational biology, preferably both.

Electronic engineer - The POKER group in Genova is searching for an electronic engineer to work on the integration of the existing WaveBoard digitizer into the NA64 data acquisition system. A two-years PostDoc position is foreseen for this project.

The goal of the project is to perform a new measurement at CERN to search for dark matter, by running a missing-energy experiment at the H4 beamline with a high-energy (100 GeV) positron beam. POKER will work in close contact with the NA64 collaboration at CERN, currently performing a complementary experimental program at the same facility using an electron beam. In particular, POKER is expected to make use of the existing NA64 beam tagging and hadron calorimeter system, while developing a new optimized active target with improved energy resolution.

In order to enhance the discovery potential of the experiment, POKER aims to replace the current electronic boards used to acquire signals from the NA64 detector with faster boards, capable of sustaining a larger date rate. This would allow to increase the intensity of the beam impinging on the detector, and thus the possible number of detected signals. As starting point for this R&D activity, we plan to use the “Waveboard” digitizer, a 12 channels, 250-MHz, 14 bits FADC digitizer recently developed by INFN-Rome and INFN-Genova. The board is controlled by a Zynq SOC, embedding a Kintex-7 FPGA and a dual-core ARM CPU, that interfaces with the ADCs. A distinct M4 ARM processor controls all the other peripherals (DACs, HV regulators, PLLs) and communicates with the Zynq through UART.

The PostDoc will be involved in the design of the new firmware of the board, according to the requirements dictated by the already-existing data acquisition system (DAQ) of the NA64 experiment. In particular, the current version of the firmware, developed for a purely triggerless DAQ setup, has to be modified to interface with the data/clock/commands distribution system of NA64, based on the UCF protocol. The researcher will be in charge of the new firmware developing and test - this activity will be performed under the guidance of the “Waveboard” developers. He will also take part to the experimental characterization of the board performances in a test setup, using a detector prototype, as well as to the installation and commissioning of a first set of boards in the NA64 setup at CERN.

Candidates are required to hold a master degree / PhD in experimental particle physics, electronics engineering or computing engineering.

ItalyLuiss University - RomaISEProD - Industrial Structure and the European Productivity Growth DivergenceFabiano SchivardiWebsite
The last two decades have witnessed substantial progress in the measurement of productivity. However, our understanding of the deep determinants of productivity growth is still limited. This is important in the face of both the global productivity slowdown emerged since mid 2000s and the large productivity growth divide in Continental Europe between the North and the South. I hypothesize that ownership, control and finance (in short \virgo industrial structure'', IS) play a key role and that their importance, due to technological change, has grown over time. I plan to merge insights and state-of-the-art techniques from industrial organization and corporate finance to assess the causes and consequences of different ISs. Methodologically, I will use a combination of unique data sources (credit register, matched employer-employee data, firm input-output relationships), quasi-experimental design (changes in the banking regulation, executives mortality shocks in local labor markets) as well as structural techniques (selection models and Bayesian learning models) to address the fundamental identification issues that plague the literature. I also plan a major data collection effort in four European countries to study succession in family firms.

The project will pursue four specific objectives in four deeply integrated work packages: a) The role of firm ownership and control on skill acquisition and risk taking; b) Skills supply: the effects of the education of entrepreneurs and managers; c) Industrial structure, input/outut relationships and IT adoption; d) Access to finance with asymmetric information and imperfectly competitive financial markets. The ambition is to generate a discontinuous change in our understanding of the relationship between corporate governance/finance and productivity growth. On the way, I expect to contribute to the key debate for the future of the European Union on the diverging productivity performance of European economies.

LuxembourgUniversity of Luxembourg - Esch-sur-AlzetteExpoBiome - Deciphering the impact of exposures from the gut microbiome-derived molecular complex in human health and diseasePaul Wilmes
Doctoral candidate (Ph.D. student) focusing on the function of the human microbiome in chronic diseases - The human gut microbiome is a complex ecosystem which contributes essential functions to human physiology. Changes to the microbiome are associated with several chronic diseases characterised by inflammatory signatures which include autoimmune and neurodegenerative diseases. The gut is a reservoir for extensive microbial “dark matter” in the form of soluble nucleic acids, (poly-)peptides and metabolites with bioactive properties. These molecules have so far eluded in-depth study. This gap in knowledge is limiting our understanding of the role of the human microbiome in governing human physiology and how changes to the gut microbiome impact inflammation-linked chronic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and Parkinson’s disease (PD). As part of the ERC-funded ExpoBiome project, a gut microbiome-targeted therapeutic intervention, i.e. fasting, is being performed together with leading clinical partners in Berlin (Germany) and Kassel (Germany). Based on systematically collected samples, the aim is to identify and track common and disease-specific molecular signatures to predict the outcome of the therapeutic fasting regimen. Molecules which are associated with a reduction in inflammatory markers will be further investigated for their anti-inflammatory properties including using our unique human-microbial co-culture system called HuMiX. In summary, the project will yield functional insights into the effect of gut microbiome-derived molecules on clinical manifestations and will provide pointers towards key microbiome-derived molecules to control inflammatory conditions in the future.

You will identify and track common and disease-specific molecular signatures to predict the outcome of a gut microbiome-targeted therapeutic intervention, i.e. fasting, on inflammation-driven symptoms in PD and RA. Based on the generated data, you will identify and validate microbiome-derived effector molecules which downregulate pro-inflammatory innate and adaptive immune pathways. Your work will identify novel microbiome-derived molecules and targeted pathways to control inflammatory conditions in the future.

Research on epidemics in contact networks - The project “Virus Spread in Networks” (ViSio N) is funded by ERC as an Advanced Grant 2020. ViSioN presents a Network Science view on virus spread in networks, in which the duality between the virus transmission process and the contact graph is key. The devastating Corona crisis reveals two major shortcomings in traditional epidemiology. First, it ignores the human contact graph and implicitly assumes a homogeneous population without specific graph structure. Second, most models for the virus spreading process relate to a Markovian setting, with exponential infection and curing times, leading to an exponential decay of the epidemic.
Measurements, however, point to significantly different infection and curing time distributions. In addition,
digital technology can help in constructing the contact graph and combined with medical testing, all infected can be detected. ViSioN aims to develop the theory of non-Markovian epidemic process on networks, a surprisingly missing element today, because non-Markovian theory is needed to tell, based on the characteristic infection and curing times of the virus, how long a pandemic will last and when the peak occurs. Next, ViSioN will combine all available measurement technologies to construct the best possible contact graph via temporal networking or adaptive networking. Finally, ViSioN will explore how accurately infections can be predicted under partial information of process and contact graph.

ViSioN is organized into 5 PhD tracks which work together and complement each other. PhD students can start effectively in Delft from 1 September 2022 on.

NetherlandsDelft University of Technology - DelftCRITICAL - When Flows Turn Turbulent in the Supercritical Fluid RegionRene PecnikWebsite
PhD position: High Performance Computing in Fluid Mechanics - To boost efficiency and productivity of engineering processes, fluids are more often pushed into the supercritical region, where highly non-ideal thermodynamic effects are at play. Yet, our fundamental understanding of flow physics at such conditions lags behind to successfully realize more powerful engineering applications.

In this project, funded by the Europen Research Council, we will (1) elucidate laminar-turbulent transition; (2) unravel compressible effects on turbulence; and (3) unveil turbulence radiation interactions, ranging from the critical point of a fluid to conditions far into the supercritical region.

In this particular PhD project, we will focus on how the interaction of radiation and temperature fields impacts turbulent heat transfer in supercritical fluids. For this purpose, you will develop highly-efficient numerical simulations developed for GPU accelerated large-scale computing facilities. The aim is to develop a computer program that executes the DNS code on CPUs to solve the Navier-Stokes equations, while the Monte Carlo method for the radiative transfer equation will be asynchronously executed on the graphical processing units (GPUs). The obtained data from these simulations will then be used to develop a better understanding of turbulent radiation interactions in optically participating fluids.

NetherlandsDelft University of Technology - DelftAlgaeLeaf - Light-responsive microalgal living materialsMarie-Eve Aubin-TamWebsite
Nature fabricates materials with remarkable properties, having the ability to grow, move and sense their environment. Such dynamic and interactive materials are in strong contrast with man-made synthetic materials. Recent scientific interest has emerged to incorporate living cells into materials to form engineered living materials, using most often muscle cells or bacteria. While underexplored, microalgae-based living materials are highly promising due to the light-driven movement of microalgae.
The aim of this project is to fabricate the first light-responsive microalgae-based materials that use the light-driven motion of cells for dynamic and reversible control over the 3D organisation and shape of the living material.
The PhD student will devise fabrication approaches for porous hydrogels, which can host motile microalgae cells. He/she will also study how the material properties are locally affected by the presence and response of living cells.

Qualified candidates have a Master in either engineering, material science, physics, chemistry, or a related field. Successful candidates are motivated by a deep scientific curiosity, have excellent experimental and quantitative skills and possess a drive to learn and to develop new methods and concepts.

NetherlandsErasmus Medical Center Rotterdam - RotterdamBUBBLE CURE - Targeted microbubble vibrations to accurately diagnose and treat cardiac device-related bacterial biofilm infectionsKlazina KooimanWebsite
Post-doctoral Researcher in Ultrasound Molecular Imaging of biofilm infections with targeted microbubbles - We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher (1 year with possible extension to 2.5 years, full-time) in
ultrasound imaging to develop ultrasound molecular imaging of bacterial biofilm infections on cardiac devices. Cardiac device infections such as on pacemakers, prosthetic valves, and left ventricular assist devices have high mortality rates. Accurate diagnosis of these infections at an early stage is critical because a delay in diagnosis is associated with increased mortality. Ultrasound imaging is currently the primary diagnostic modality. However, it lacks specificity and sensitivity because the signal from the bacteria is similar to the signal of healthy tissue or the cardiac device, thus making accurate diagnosis challenging. Targeted ultrasound contrast agents, i.e. targeted microbubbles, can specifically bind to the bacterial biofilms, making ultrasound molecular imaging possible so the infection can be detected using transthoracic echocardiography with high specificity and sensitivity.
You will be responsible for developing and evaluating ultrasound pulsing schemes to detect the targeted microbubbles in vitro, ex vivo on patient material, and preclinically in vivo. For this, you will closely collaborate with researchers investigating targeted microbubbles for therapy, and in consultation with experts from the Dept. of Cardiology and Medical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases. Supervision of students is expected from you.
The BUBBLE CURE project will result in a novel multidisciplinary technology that allows accurate diagnosis and treatment of cardiac device-related bacterial biofilm infections. The project is part of a research line in translational biomedical research, made possible by a personal grant from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement No 805308) to the principal investigator Dr. K. Kooiman. By combining targeted microbubbles and ultrasound we aim to develop advanced ultrasound diagnostic and therapeutic technologies for cardiac-device related bacterial biofilm infections. The full project team comprises of six people and is embedded in Biomedical Engineering, part of the Department of Cardiology.

Your background and expertise
The candidate must be able to show expert knowledge of ultrasound pulsing schemes and ultrasound imaging. This includes demonstrated experience with open research scanners and signal processing, preferably also on ultrasound contrast agents for (molecular) imaging. Experience with preclinical studies is highly welcome. Candidates are expected to have a PhD in a relevant field, such as ultrasound imaging or related, and preferably have experience in interdisciplinary projects. You have a can-do attitude, good publication record and scientific writing and communication skills, and are able to work autonomously. You are expected to write scientific publications and give conference presentations on the outcome of the project.

NetherlandsUniversity of Twente - EnschedeMeltDyn - Understanding the melting dynamics in turbulent flowsSander HuismanWebsite
physics, fluid mechanics, mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering - Melting, dissolving, and erosion are processes that are frequently found in nature and technology. Contrary to common believe these three processes do not always smooth the surface, but rather form structures and sometimes even sharpen the surface. This leeds to the formation of e.g. ice scallops and pinnacles, for some examples of patterning and roughening. The continuously changing shape of e.g. a melting iceberg and its interaction with the external turbulence is very complicated as it involves three boundary layers: kinetic, thermal, and solutal (due to the salt concentration). The interaction between those boundary layers is highly complex and not understood. In particular, what is the effect of the surface roughness on the melting rate? The aim is to study the interaction of these boundary layers in a controlled lab environment such as to increase our understanding of these phenomena and their relevance on e.g. the melting rate of ice of icebergs and (tidal) glaciers, all important in view of global warming and precision required in technological applications.

NetherlandsRadboud University Nijmegen - NijmegenHHAIR - Hybrid Human-AI Regulation: Supporting Young learners’ Self-regulated LearningInge MolenaarWebsite

Are you a researcher with a passion for advanced machine learning techniques, data science, and Bayesian modelling and inference? Do you want to work in an interdisciplinary team, conducting research in a pleasant and open environment? As a postdoc, you will study AI technologies in relation to self-regulated learning. In this way, you generate insights in the type of hybrid support that is best suited for learning.

We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher with a background in Artificial Intelligence or a related field to work on the Hybrid Human-AI Regulation (HHAIR) project for 4 years (0.6 FTE) or 3 years (0.8 FTE) (depending on your capabilities, the position may be scaled up to 1 FTE with teaching duties).

Young learners (10-14 years) in today's society often use Adaptive Learning Technologies (ALTs) such as Gynzy, to optimise their learning experience of, for instance, mathematics and languages. However, existing ALTs take the control of the learning process away from the student. As a result, students have less opportunity to practise their self-regulated learning (SRL) skills. SRL involves students' control and monitoring of their own learning process, with metacognitive activities such as orientation, planning and evaluation.

In the Hybrid Human-AI Regulation (HHAIR) project, we gradually transfer ownership of the learning process from AI-regulated back to self-regulated learning, which we call hybrid learning. This way, young learners can benefit from an AI-assisted learning programme, while also developing their SRL skills. Depending on their SRL skills, the ALT will adapt to their developing needs. As such, HHAIR facilitates optimal learning of skills. Based on the ALTs trace data, we will determine the level of SRL a learner shows and the amount of AI guidance needed. The project is the first to explicitly combine SRL with AI-supported learning.

As a postdoctoral researcher, you will be part of the ALL team that investigates the ALTs trace data from daily usage in schools across Europe provided by the AI@EDU infrastructure. This process starts with an exploratory step (WP1). Here, we use Bayesian nonparametric modelling to characterise different types of learners and their prototypical behaviour. Subsequently, the insights from WP1 are incorporated into design studies. We use the results from the Bayesian model to predict which type of hybrid support is best suited for a student's learning (WP2). Together with our team, you will be responsible for the development and implementation of these algorithms.

- You hold a PhD degree in a relevant field, e.g. artificial intelligence, machine learning, computer science, or similar.
- You have demonstrable experience with implementing advanced machine learning techniques.
- You have affinity with Bayesian nonparametric modelling and Bayesian approximate inference.
- You have strong mathematical skills.
- You have ample experience with writing academic publications.
- You are interested in putting your skills to use in the context of self-regulated learning and education in general.
- You have the desire to work in an interdisciplinary team.
- You have an excellent command of written and spoken English.

NorwayUniversity of Tromso - TromsøsCENT - Cryptophane-Enhanced Trace Gas Spectroscopy for On-Chip Methane DetectionJana JagerskaWebsite
analytical chemistry, physical chemistry, opto-chemical sensors, spectroscopy - The aim of this project is to develop a sensitive and selective on-chip methane sensor.

Most sensitive gas sensors that supply data for climate and space research, including the methane sensor on NASA’s Curiosity Mars Rover, have detection limits at ppb to ppt levels. This means they can detect one molecule of target gas among one billion to one trillion of other molecules. The aim of our research is to develop sensors of similar performance but of an orders of magnitude smaller footprint, realized on a photonic chip. Our projects follow two different approaches: Development of novel waveguides optimized for long pathlengths and strong interaction with the surrounding gas, and on-chip gas pre-concentration compatible with mid-infrared spectroscopic detection. This PhD position falls within the second approach:

Chemical pre-concentration of methane molecules on the chip is one key element in the project, and it will represent the main focus of the successful applicant. The research will include:
• Preparation of optically transparent enrichment films incorporating cryptophanes as methane-sensitive elements
• Deposited in the form of thin films on top of specially designed nanophotonic waveguides
• Optimization of the film composition towards high enrichment while preserving distinct spectroscopic features
• Evaluation of sensor performance for methane detection
• A more fundamental part of the project will investigate methane dynamics in cryptophane traps, in collaboration with the Department of Chemistry at UiT.

The chemically functionalized spectroscopic sensors are expected to achieve excellent selectivity and sensitivity, and will be optimized for drone-conducted identification and quantification of methane sources in the Arctic. Principal external collaboration includes ENS Lyon (France), University of Ulm (Germany), NTNU Trondheim (Norway) and Norwegian industrial partners SINTEF and NEO Monitors.

The successful candidate will work in the team with 2 postdocs and 2 other PhD students, whose expertise covers the fields of photonics, spectroscopy, and analytical chemistry. The working hours will be utilised for research, co-supervision of master and internship students, and dissemination of results in peer-reviewed journals and conferences. An overseas research stay during the appointment period will be encouraged.

Further information about the position and UiT is available by contacting Assoc. Prof. Jana Jágerská by email or telephone +47 776 45166.

Qualifications and Admission to the PhD programme
The position requires a Norwegian Master’s degree, or a corresponding foreign Master’s degree recognised as equivalent in chemical physics, analytical chemistry, or other relevant disciplines.

Other requirements include:
• Solid background in analytical or physical chemistry and molecular spectroscopy
• Prior experience in optical and/or chemical sensing, or chemical functionalization of surfaces
• Practical experience in chemical laboratory
• Excellence in studies and previous work
• Excellent command of English, both written and verbal. Interest in Norwegian language and culture is welcome.

In addition, it is an advantage that the applicant has:
• International experience and cultural awareness
• Knowledge about photonic sensors
• Knowledge of interface chemistry and organic synthesis

Emphasis is also given on personal suitability.

Project description: X-rays are a prime analytical tool across a diverse range of areas relevant to modern economy—from fundamental physics and chemistry research, to the pharmaceutical and semiconductor industries. We have developed the first source of isolated attosecond soft X-ray pulses in the water window (280 - 540 eV), the spectral region in which the constituents of life (carbon, nitrogen and oxygen) have strong absorption edges, to resolve the flow of energy inside materials in real time. The project is concerned with the aspects of generation of attosecond x-rays and their application to investigate the interaction between photons, carriers and the lattice in quantum materials and excitonic systems.

Extensive experience in large-scale sequence analysis, which may include: genome/transcriptome assembly, differential expression analysis, short read mapping and phylogenetics - Which are the most abundant protist species in the world’s sunlit oceans, and what roles do they play in global marine ecology? We seek a motivated, curious postdoctoral researcher to join our team to answer these questions, by isolating abundant, unknown protist species and transforming them into new model organisms to study ocean ecology and evolution. We will use single-cell techniques to sequence and assemble their genomes/transcriptomes in order to provide an initial glimpse of their metabolic potential. Next, we will interrogate global metatranscriptomic data sets with bioinformatic approaches to build hypotheses about each new species’ ecological characteristics. Finally, we will test these hypotheses in our lab cultures, with the goal of describing how these globally abundant protists influence oceanic ecosystems. Along the way, we hope that discoveries we make on these currently unknown organisms will influence our understanding of eukaryotic evolution and diversity.

Modelling the social and economic impact of delay propagation in air transport - IFISC offers a new postdoctoral position, funded by the European Research Council through the ERC Starting Grant ARCTIC
(, on modelling the social and economic impact of delay propagation in air transport.

IFISC’s strategic objective is the study, exploration and development of information processing in and by complex systems. This comprises connecting existing approaches in different fields, developing common frameworks and the synthesis of novel information processing concepts. Within this context, ARCTIC proposes the study of air transport as an information processing system, in which information, for instance representing delays, is received, processed and redistributed by the different elements of the system. This requires, on the one hand, the application of techniques coming from computer science, statistical physics and neuroscience. On the other hand, results have to be expressed in economic terms, to understand the real impact that delays have in society, and the impact of propagation containment policies.

Your tasks will be:
- Leveraging on the results obtained by the group on the use of statistical physics and information theory to describe delay propagation in air transport, to develop models to assess the economic and social impact of such propagation.
- To identify ways to minimise such impact, and to feed back the results to the rest of the team, to design optimised containment policies.
- Contribute to the definition of new ideas, metrics, and analyses.
- Presenting results in meetings and through manuscripts.

What we offer:
- Up to 3 years full time contract, gross salary of approx. 29.000 €/year, plus mobility funds for research stays.
- Multidisciplinary, international and inspiring environment.
- The contract includes all the benefits of the Spanish public health and social security system.

- Experience in the creation and analysis of economic models, specifically in the context of transportation systems, including aspects like mobility and fairness.
- Experience in the analysis of real-world data.
- Ability for independent, analytical and out-of-the-box thinking.
- Knowledge of air transport and / or neuroscience, albeit not essential, will positively be evaluated.
- PhD academic degree. Note that the degree must be recognised according to Spanish regulations.
- English language fluency.

Application submissions should be made by sending an email to, with “Postdoctoral position” as subject, and including:
- Letter of motivation
- Updated CV with full academic record
- Copy of previously-published scientific papers.

The position will remain open until filled.

Further inquiries about the position are welcome and should be addressed to the same email address.

IFISC is an equal opportunity institution. Applications to this position by female or minority group scientists are particularly encouraged.

SpainUniversidad Politecnica de Madrid - MadridCaust - Monte-Carlo Determination of Causation in Turbulence Javier JimenezWebsite
Computer-driven basic research on turbulence physics within an established group. - I am offering one postdoctoral position centring on exploring the role of simulations of turbulent flows in the limit of ‘zero’ computing cost (mostly on GPUs), and on the analysis of the resulting data. What ‘free’ simulations allow is ‘Monte-Carlo’ research, in which ideas are ‘randomly’ tested and only evaluated afterwards, in the hope that some of them be fruitful. Their main advantage is expected to be to alleviate ‘paradigm lock’, in which radically new ideas are unlikely to get tested, and knowledge gets stuck in a local optimum. Ensembles of cheap simulations also provide causal information about what the effect of a particular ‘random’ initial condition is. The main result in turbulence is expected to be the identification of novel flow structures, with definitions grounded in the underlying physical effect instead of, as is most common, on properties assumed a-priori to be important (e.g. intensity). In particular, we will search for flow configurations that are ‘causally most sensitive’ to perturbations, in the sense that the perturbations are most effective when applied on them. Both the probing perturbations and the receptive flow states constitute ‘causes’. The flows examined will mainly be wall-bounded turbulent ones. The job is to convert all this into reality, including to help mentoring graduate students, and, most importantly, to think

Plant biologist - Postdoctoral position at Umeå Plant Science Centre, Sweden,

Ambient temperature above or below a threshold can adversely affect plant growth and development, and even lead to death. The tightly regulated distribution of the hormone auxin throughout the plant body controls an impressive variety of developmental processes that tailor plant growth and morphology to environmental conditions. Although non-optimal ambient temperature can alter auxin transport, the precise nature of this alteration and the underlying molecular mechanisms remain enigmatic. The aim of the project is to dissect the molecular mechanisms involved in auxin transport and its downstream signaling upon temperature stress, focusing on the root of the model organism Arabidopsis thaliana. The project will combine state-of-the-art approaches, e.g. various microscopy techniques, molecular and cell biology, biochemistry.

Research environment: A 3-year postdoctoral position (with expected starting date September 1, 2022) is available in the group of Dr. Petra Marhava. Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences/Umeå Plant Science Centre (UPSC) is a Centre of Excellence in experimental plant biology, located in northern Sweden.

MSc degree in physical sciences (materials, physics, chemistry, chemical engineering) - Two jobs are on offer, either theory-based, or experimental.

Theory. Development of a theoretical description of optical bandgaps arising from structural assemblies with partial disorder. This project will be predominantly based on already acquired 3D data of biological materials that exhibit photonic band gaps and it is the goal to develop a physical model that underpins the bandgap in these materials. These models will be tested using numerical approaches. The candidate should have a background in theoretical physics, preferably optics. Given the appropriate qualification this position might also be filled on the post-doc level.

Experiment: In collaboration with New York University, so-called "patchy" colloids will be developed.

SwitzerlandSwiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL) - LausanneCodeSan - Code Sanitization for Vulnerability Pruning and Exploitation MitigationMathias PayerWebsite
Our research focuses on software and systems security. Despite efforts and improvements in bug discovery techniques, some exploitable vulnerabilities will remain. We target techniques that both enable developers to discover and remove bugs and make programs resilient against the exploitation of unknown or unpatched vulnerabilities.

To discover bugs we propose (i) sanitization techniques that enforce a security property such as memory or type safety; given concrete program input, our sanitizers then flag any property violations and (ii) fuzzing techniques that leverage static and dynamic analysis to create program inputs to explore program areas that are not yet covered through existing test cases. To protect against exploitable vulnerabilities, we focus on control-flow integrity using specific language semantics, enforcing type integrity, and protecting selective data. Under this premise, we focus on compiler-based, runtime-based, and language-based protection mechanisms and security policies that increase the resilience of applications against attacks (in the presence of software vulnerabilities). All prototypes are released as open-source and we release talks on YouTube.

We look for people with excellent systems skills that have, e.g., contributed to the Linux kernel, LLVM, or other complex systems software, researched in automated testing, fuzzing, or sanitization, or generally worked in the software/system security area.

Machine learning, computer vision - We have several open positions for postdoctoral researchers, visiting researchers, and PhD students in the scope of the ERC project BayesianGDPR ("Bayesian Models and Algorithms for Fairness and Transparency"). It involves the development of novel inference and computational methods towards the realisation of fair and transparent machine learning and computer vision systems in static and dynamic settings. In particular, the project will focus on Bayesian methods and their "deep" extension.

Three research directions are:
1) Fairness under uncertainty in a static setting. Developing a machine learning framework for addressing fairness in classification problems and beyond, and under uncertainty about data, models, and predictions about future data.
2) Fairness under uncertainty in a dynamic setting. Extending the framework to a setting where data points arrive over time, and models have to be dynamically updated when taking general feedback.
3) Transparency in fairness. Ensuring a human could understand how non-discrimination is defined and achieved by using, among others, uncertainty estimates for building interpretable models and/or explicitly explaining about changes being made to the models to enforce non-discriminatory principles. The specific roles assigned to the project members will take into account their research interests and their background.

The aim of this project is to develop a general theory for the analysis of Bayesian methods in complex and high (or infinite) dimensional models which will cover not only fine understanding of the posterior distributions but also an analysis of the output of the algorithms used to implement the approaches. The main objectives of the project are (briefly): 1) Asymptotic analysis of the posterior distribution of complex high dimensional models 2) Interactions between the asymptotic theory of high dimensional posterior distributions and computational complexity. We will also enrich these theoretical developments by 3) strongly related domains of applications, namely neuroscience, terrorism and crimes and ecology.

The postholder will hold or be close to completion of a PhD/DPhil in statistics together with relevant experience. They will have the ability to manage own academic research and associated activities and have previous experience of contributing to publications/presentations. They will contribute ideas for new research projects and research income generation. Ideally, the postholder will also have experience in theoretical properties of Bayesian procedures and/or approximate Bayesian methods.

Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Synapse Biology

A full-time position is available for a talented laboratory scientist to join our team on an exciting ERC-funded project, SYNAPTOME, to uncover the synapse diversity of individual neurons in the brain. Our well-established laboratory, which is situated in Edinburgh BioQuarter, includes experts in experimental and computational neuroscience. We study the molecular basis of brain function in health and disease, in particular the role of synapse diversity (e.g. Zhu et al. 2018, Neuron 99, 781-799; Cizeron et al. 2020, Science 369, 270-275). SYNAPTOME will discover fundamental design principles inherent in the building blocks of the brain, and reveal how this architecture is established during development and damaged in genetic disorders. The project presents a unique opportunity to leverage state-of-the-art technologies to tackle the challenge of unravelling brain complexity.

Your skills and attributes for success:
• A PhD in neuroscience, molecular cell biology or related discipline
• Experience in advanced microscopy techniques and molecular imaging
• A thorough understanding of synapse biology and mammalian brain anatomy
• An outstanding team player who will thrive within a multidisciplinary, highly collaborative research group
• Excellent time management, problem solving, organisational and communication skills - The job-holder will apply molecular, genetic, biochemical and cell biology approaches, confocal microscopy and molecular imaging as the lead laboratory researcher in the ERC-funded SYNAPTOME project to characterise single-neuron synaptome architecture (SNSA) in the mammalian brain. They will design, execute and interpret experiments that uncover and characterise synapse diversity in individual neurons and their dendritic tree. They will help to develop new genetic labelling and computational approaches to identify the SNSA of specific functional types of neurons, reveal how the SNSA is built during development and how it is damaged in genetic brain disorders. Very little is known about the distribution of synapse types on individual neurons and what this actually means for brain function. These studies will uncover fundamental design principles inherent in the building blocks of the brain that link genome, proteome and synaptome with the architecture and function of individual neurons and their organisation into brain-wide networks. This work forms a key component of the lab’s research vision to understand the structural and functional diversity of synapses in the brain on multiple scales, helping to unravel brain complexity, which remains a major challenge in neuroscience.
SYNAPTOME will draw on many aspects of contemporary neuroscience research, and the job-holder will be expected to engage fully with the multidisciplinary research group, which comprises experts in molecular biology, genetics, genomics, proteomics, data management, bioinformatics, software development, modelling and state-of-the-art computational image analysis.

United KingdomUniversity of Leeds - LeedsDUST - Data Assimilation for Agent-Based Models: Applications to Civil EmergenciesNick MallesonWebsite
Research Fellow in Real-Time Agent-Based Modelling - You will work on a project, funded by the European Research Council, called Data Assimilation for Agent-Based Models (DUST). The utilmate aim of the project is to develop an agent-based computer simulation that can be used to model social phenomena – such as disease spread, traffic congestion, or crowding in busy public places – in real-time, providing valuable information to decision makers. Agent-based modelling is an ideal methodology for this type of simulation but has rarely been used to make real-time predictions. Hence there is an opportunity to develop models that are able to incorporate real-time data to make their short-term predictions more accurate. The project will attempt to combine cutting-edge methods in data assimilation with agent-based modelling to create accurate, real-time models for use when rapid decision making on the best available evidence is required.

The research team is lead by Dr Nick Malleson and will be located within the Leeds Institute for Data Analytics (LIDA), which is emerging as an international centre of excellence in agent-based modelling. The city of Leeds is already recognised as a hub for big data analytics in business, health care and academic research. In addition, the University is a partner in the Alan Turing Institute, which is the UK’s national institute for artificial intelligence and data science, offering exciting opportunites to for LIDA researchers to engage with scientific leaders from a range of fields.

You should have a PhD (or be very close to obtaining a PhD) in Geography, Computer Science, Mathematics, Statistics, Physics – or a related discipline with a significant component of programming and/or data science – and be able to demonstrate a combination of enthusiasm and expertise in computational modelling and data analysis. Direct experience in developing and using agent-based models is not compulsory.

What does the role entail?

As Research Fellow, your main duties will include:

• Work with the project investigator, colleagues at Leeds and with partners to develop an agent-based simulation that will model a phenomena such as traffic congestion or crowding in real-time;
• Further develop and integrate new data assimilation methods, that are currently being implemented by the team, to incorporate streams of real-time data into the agent-based model to reduce uncertainty;
• Write high quality, robust, well documented computer software;
• Prepare research papers and other material for publication;
• Disseminate findings from the research project by preparing and delivering research presentations at conferences or other forums;
• Contribute to the development of new research funding applications, either in a leading role or as a co-investigator;
• Plan and manage your own research activity in collaboration with the project investigator;
• Working both independently and also as part of a larger team of researchers, engaging in knowledge-transfer activities where appropriate and feasible;
• Maintaining your own continuing professional development and acting as a mentor to less experienced colleagues as appropriate;
• Contributing to the training of both undergraduate and postgraduate students, where appropriate, including assisting with the supervision of projects in areas relevant to the project.

What will you bring to the role?

As Research Fellow you will have:

• A PhD (or be very close to obtaining a PhD) in Geography, Computer Science, Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, or a related discipline with a significant component of programming and/or data science;
• A demonstrable ability to develop efficient, robust and well-documented computer software and confidence in the use of a high-level, object-oriented programming language;
• An awareness of simulation techniques and enthusiasm to apply them in the context of modelling social systems;
• Skills in the acquisition, manipulation and analysis of diverse forms of spatio-temporal data (e.g. transport / mobility data, social media data streams, etc.);
• An ability to write high-quality research papers with an emerging track record in the publication of scholarly articles in peer-reviewed journals;
• Excellent communication skills including evidence of having presented work at a high academic level and an ability to explain complicated technical work to colleagues in diverse fields;
• A proven ability to work effectively with others in a multidisciplinary team environment and to manage competing demands effectively, responsibly and without close support;
• A strong commitment to your own continuous professional development.

You may also have:

• Direct experience in building agent-based models;
• Direct experience with data assimilation and/or related techniques;
• Experience in modelling the dynamics of interaction in space and time, e.g. traffic congestion or crowd behaviour.

United KingdomUniversity College London - LondonNeurolive - The Neurocognition of LivenessGuido OrgsWebsite
Candidates should have an MSc/BSc in Psychology / Cognitive Neuroscience or a related discipline - Applications are invited for a 3-year fixed-term full-time PhD studentship on the NEUROLIVE research project ( The studentship will be supervised by Dr Guido Orgs (Goldsmiths, University of London) and Prof Daniel C. Richardson (University College London). The studentship will be based in London and will start in September 2022.

Liveness is vital to dance, theatre and music performances – and to many other kinds of events, including political rallies, sports events, reality TV and university lectures – but what exactly sets live experiences apart from recorded, streamed or simulated ones? The NEUROLIVE project combines practices of artistic research and performance making, theories from dance, theatre and performance studies, and cognitive neuroscience methods such as mobile EEG Hyperscanning to examine the neural basis of the live experience, acknowledging the multi-faceted and culturally-specific nature of liveness in the arts and beyond.

The PhD studentship will have a specific focus on the social aspects of liveness. This includes investigating the ways in which groups of spectators interact with each other sharing attention and affect or studying how performers interact with spectators in both a traditional theatre or cinema setting, for example by “breaking the fourth wall” or directly interacting with participating spectators, as in for example standup comedy or political rallies. In this context, live performances serve as a naturalistic setting in which we can study social interactions outside the laboratory. To this end, we use wearable sensors, continuous behavioural judgements, and mobile neuroimaging to collect data from large groups of people during live events.

This position will be well suited to students with a background in psychology or cognitive neuroscience, with a keen interest in social cognition and social neuroscience. Prior experience with measures such as eye movements, EEG, skin conductance or cardiac activity is desirable.

The successful applicant will be part of an interdisciplinary research team of artists, cognitive and computer scientists and engineers all working together to develop a behavioural, psychophysiological and neural measure of liveness. The PhD will be located both at Goldsmiths and at UCL and in addition to the live performance studies will involve more traditional lab-based experiments looking at specific aspects of social liveness. A keen interest or prior practice in the performing arts (theatre/dance/music) or film is desirable.

This award covers tuition fees at the UK/home rate and provides a stipend to be paid to the student. For students who pay UK tuition fees the award will cover the tuition fees (£4500) in full plus stipend (fixed at £16000 per year – including London weighting). Students who pay international tuition fees are eligible to apply, but the applicant must make appropriate arrangements to cover the difference between the international and UK/Home tuition fee.

Applications must be received by 5PM (UK time) on 19th April 2022 and should be clearly marked ‘Neurolive PhD Studentship’. Please ensure you include a CV, personal statement and two references. Interviews will be held in person or online in May 2022, and the successful applicant will be informed as soon as possible thereafter.

Enquiries should be directed to Dr Guido Orgs ( or Prof Daniel C. Richardson (

United KingdomUniversity of Cambridge - CambridgeTypeFoundry - Foundations of Type Inference for Modern Programming LanguagesNeel KrishnaswamiWebsite
Research into formal properties of advanced type systems - Many modern programming languages, whether developed in industry, like Rust or Java, or in academia, like Haskell or Scala, are typed. All the data in a program is classified by its type (e.g., as strings or integers), and at compile-time programs are checked for consistent usage of types, in a process called type checking. Thus, the expression 3 + 4 will be accepted, since the + operator takes two numbers as arguments, but the expression 3 + "hello" will be rejected, as it makes no sense to add a number and a string. Though this is a simple idea, sophisticated type systems can track properties like algorithmic complexity, data-race freedom, differential privacy, and data abstraction.

In general, programmers must annotate programs to tell compilers the types to check. In theoretical calculi, it is easy to demand enough annotations to trivialize typechecking, but this can make the annotation burden unbearable: often larger than the program itself! So, to transfer results from formal calculi to new programming languages, we need type inference algorithms, which reconstruct missing data from partially-annotated programs.

However, the practice of type inference has outpaced its theory. Compiler authors have implemented many type inference systems, but the algorithms are often ad-hoc or folklore, and the specifications they are meant to meet are informal or nonexistent. The makes it hard to learn how to implement type inference, hard to build alternative implementations (whether for new compilers or analysis engines for IDEs), and hard for programmers to predict if refactorings will preserve typability.

In TYPEFOUNDRY , we will use recent developments in proof theory and semantics (like polarized type theory and call-by-push-value) to identify the theoretical structure underpinning type inference, and use this theory to build a collection of techniques for type inference capable of scaling up to the advanced type system features in both modern and future languages.

United KingdomUniversity of Manchester - ManchesterProgrammable Matter - New materials enabled by programmable two-dimensional chemical reactions across van der Waals gapArtem MishchenkoWebsite
The project is funded by ERC Consolidator Grant Programmable Matter and will be conducted within the Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Manchester. The successful candidate will join the Condensed Matter Physics Group, based in the Schuster Building and the National Graphene Institute to undertake a range of projects related to quantum physics of 2D materials and van der Waals heterostructures. - Quantum materials, in which emergent phenomena play a crucial role, are at the forefront of condensed matter physics. They provide an enticing playground to explore topology, strong correlations, and other non-trivial phenomena. In the context of quantum materials, a novel class of artificial heterostructures based on 2D atomic crystals – van der Waals (vdW) heterostructures – offer plenty of advantages. The accessibility of van der Waals technology enabled a breakthrough in the field of 2D research – hundreds of novel materials have been reported during the last several years. 2D crystals brought into direct contact with one another in a vdW heterostructure offer precise nanoscale control at the interfaces. This can be done by utilising a long-range order of the surfaces of crystals, and by exploiting external parameters (including strong electric and magnetic fields, light stimulation, high pressure, etc.) which can be applied to control the interactions. In 2D crystals, these external parameters can be adjusted locally at the interface, by patterning the crystals using, for instance, standard lithography techniques, or by resorting to moiré periodicity controlled by a lattice mismatch and a twist angle between the crystals (twistronics). Thus, the properties of 2D materials can be pre-programmed by manipulating electronic band structures, tuning topology via Berry curvature, adjusting valley physics in spin-valley locked systems, controlling chirality, and using many other methods, to effectively steer a quantum material towards a desirable state.

The successful applicant will join a dynamic research group in Manchester to focus on quantum transport measurements and many-body physics in these vdW materials, searching for new physics and applications. The range of potential materials and controls is very large, some of the interesting systems include heterostructures of transition metal chalcogenides (TMC) with a rich phase diagram of quantum states including hidden quantum order phases, tunable charge-, spin-, or valley-density wave states. Furthermore, TMCs are known for their strongly bound excitons, where exciton condensation is expected, potentially leading to optically controlled superconductivity, which enables new device concepts. Bipolarons and other quasiparticles promising for condensation could also be created in carefully designed van der Waals heterostructures, where 2D semiconductors, superconductors, insulators, and ferromagnets can be brought together, resulting in a system with tunable interaction strength and topology.
