Doctoral School in Biomedical Sciences in JCET - MCB - SOLARIS
We are happy to announce that in June 2020 the Jagiellonian University will be opening registration for applicants to the doctoral school - Ph.D. Programme in Biomedical Sciences. The Biomedical Sciences doctoral programme is supported by the Jagiellonian Centre for Experimental Therapeutics (JCET), the Malopolska Centre of Biotechnology (MCB) and the SOLARIS National Synchrotron Radiation Centre (SOLARIS).
We are seeking applications from exceptional students to our Ph.D. Programme which will be offering Ph.D studies in the following fields:
- Jagiellonian Centre for Experimental Therapeutics
- endothelial biomedicine, including experimental pharmacology of endotheli
- vascular drugs metabolism/pharmacokinetics
- physiology, pathophysiology, biochemistry, analytics, and biochemical imaging of endothelium.
- the Malopolska Centre of Biotechnology
- developmental biology
- structural biology
- chemical imaging
- microbial genomics
- cell systems and cell models including stem cells
- bionanotechnology and bionanochemistry
- the SOLARIS National Synchrotron Radiation Centre: chemical imaging and machine learning for cancer detection.
The SOLARIS PhD project led by dr Tomasz Wróbel focuses on the development of IR imaging as a tool for cancer understanding and diagnosis using machine learning approaches. The aim is to create label-free, non-destructive and highly accurate comprehensive histopathological models of pancreatic and breast cancers. IR imaging at the tissue level offers a wealth of information and proper processing is crucial for creating robust classification models, which can be relevant for the clinician. The specific goals will include FT-IR data acquisition on a newly built SOLAIR beamline, creation of models and optimization in terms of accuracy vs. robustness.
Details of other projects will be provided in June and applicants will be asked to provide a cover letter to say why they are interested in joining out Biomedical Science Doctoral School, their aspirations and an indication of the area of research in which they are interested and why. We will also ask for a CV and names of referees.
Successful applicants will then work in at least one of the three excellent and international and interdisciplinary institutes based in Krakow – MCB, JCET or SOLARIS. The institutes are hiring international world-class scientists and publishing research at on the highest level.
