“Image In Life“ is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Initial Training Network project, funded by the European Commission Horizon2020 programme, that addresses the challenge of understanding how cells behave to build organisms as complex as vertebrates and studying their development and diseases by analysis of 3D+time microscopic images. The project will run for 4 years starting on January 1, 2017, see also http://www.imageinlife.eu/.
“Image In Life“ brings together leading European research groups in imaging, biology, medicine and applied mathematics. The consortium contains the universities and research institutes as well as the private companies with the aim to perform the forefront research and commercialise developed tools. The 14 PhD students will be recruited and participate in the „Image In Life“ research and training programme. The 3 PhD student positions in mathematical and computational modelling for image processing and analysis are just open in Bratislava, two at the Slovak University of Technology (STUBA) and one in TatraMed Software s.r.o. Further PhD students will be hired in France (University of Montpelier, CNRS Gif-sur-Yvette, Pasteur Institute Paris, PhaseView Paris), UK (Cambridge University, Manchester Metropolitan University), The Netherlands (University of Leiden), Spain (ICFO Barcelona) and Germany (Acquifer Heidelberg).
The 2 open positions at STUBA are devoted to development of novel efficient numerical algorithms for segmentation and tracking of cells in 3D+time images and will be supervised by Prof. Karol Mikula from Department of Mathematics and Descriptive Geometry, Faculty of Civil Engineering at STUBA. The PhD position open in Tatramed Software s.r.o. is devoted to efficient implementation of biomedical image processing algorithms and will be supervised by Dr. Jozef Urbán. The close cooperation with leading biology groups in Europe in the "Image In Life" project framework will guarantee the cutting-edge 3D+time microscopic data and the forefront PhD research. The corresponding income, by the rules of Marie Sklodowska-Curie ITN programme, is offered to PhD students.
The applications for all “Image In Life“ PhD positions are welcome at https://www.imageinlife-application.eu/. Deadline for this round of applications is March 15, 2017.
