2. PhD-position (4 years) At the Faculty of Medicine, Department of Biomedicine

Summary of Doctoral Project:

Glioblastoma is the most malignant primary brain cancer, where no effective treatments are currently available. The focus of the project is to develop novel small peptide molecules that inhibit the function of Chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan 4 (CSPG4), an important biomarker for aggressive disease course in brain cancer patients using integrative structure-based drug discovery and computational approaches. As a foundation for drug discovery, the structure of CSPG4 will be determined using cryo electron microscopy. Based on the obtained structure, small molecule or peptide ligands will be designed.

3. PhD Research Fellow in Experimental Reservoir Physics

Summary of Doctoral Project:

The position is part of the Center of Sustainable Subsurface Resources (CSSR). The main ambition for CSSR is to provide the knowledge required for the low carbon transition the Norwegian petroleum industry foresee for the next decade. A key point is the impact of increased electrification and how operations will be impacted by the intermittency associated with renewable energy supply and fluctuating electricity prices. A new energy system necessitates new knowledge of physical processes. This project will emphasize reservoir flow and short-term energy storage concepts, using energy carriers such as hydrogen.

7. PhD position: Developmental Systems in a Simple Marine Chordate 

Summary of Doctoral Project:

The Christiaen lab uses a wide range of approaches, including molecular, cellular and embryological techniques, genomics including from single cells, genome engineering and computational biology methods to study development and regeneration, at a systems level, in tunicates. Tunicates, especially the genus Ciona, offer unique opportunities to leverage state-of-the-art experimenal and computational techniques and approaches to study chordate development with a cellular resolution and a the genome scale. Specifically, efforts using systematic CRISPR/Cas9-mediated mutagenesis, high-content imaging, data science and computational modeling are used to study the biomolecular networks governing cell fate specification and cellular behaviors, such as collective migration and oriented asymmetric cell divisions. New directions will leverage controlled culture conditions, the natural diversity of tunicate populations, single cell genomics, quantitative imaging, CRISPR/Cas9, and data science to probe the impact of environmental challenges on developing embryos at the systems scale.

8. PhD Research Fellow in Medical Physics (Neuroimaging)

Summary of Doctoral Project:

The aim of the project is, by means of advanced neuroimaging approaches and related statistical, mathematical and physical modelling of acquired MRI data, to obtain reliable and robust in vivo quantitative measures that serve as novel disease biomarkers or assist in the refinement of treatment strategies in selected mental health applications. The imaging infrastructure available to the project includes three state-of-the art 3Tesla MRI systems (General Electric and Siemens Healthineers), and a complete PET Centre including in-house radiopharmaceutical production of PET tracers and MR/PET (and PET/CT). Additional small animal imaging facilities (7T MRI, PET/CT, US, OI) and a national platform on NMR spectrometers (850-500MHz) are available on campus.

9. PhD-position (4 years) in Engineering NK cells for improved functionality in immunotherapy

Summary of Doctoral Project:

The position is part of the project “Engineering NK cells for improved functionality in immunotherapy”, funded by the University of Bergen. The project is performed within the research group of Professor Bryceson at the Broegelmann Research Laboratory. Adoptive cellular immunotherapy using CAR-T cells or NK cells can cure some hematological cancers, but several obstacles remain with respect to targeting solid cancers. This project aims to characterize NK cells in solid tumors and study how NK cell transcriptional networks can be altered to improve their ability to migrate to tissues, kill target cells and persist in vivo. The ultimate goal is to harness such insights in order to engineer improved effectors of NK cell-mediated immunotherapy towards solid tumors. An array of advanced molecular and cellular methods will be used within the project, in addition to human samples. The research group has a node within the Hematology and Regenerative Medicine division at Karolinska Institutet.

12. PhD Research Fellow in speleothem-based paleoclimate research.

Summary of Doctoral Project:

Speleothems are an important terrestrial climate archive and new ways of using this archive for reconstructing climate are continuously being developed. In this project we apply fluid inclusion microthermometry for quantitative paleo-temperature reconstructions. The method is based on the density of drip water relicts that are preserved in microscopic fluid inclusions. In the FluidMICS project, we aim to further develop and improve this method, to test its applicability to speleothems from various low latitude climate settings, and to apply it for climate reconstructions through the late Quaternary and beyond.
