Open Positions

PhD Position on Digitalization of Biomaterial Research via Deep Learning Approaches

In this project you will contribute to the development of a deep learning algorithm assisted platform for material research, which will allow the fast screening of biomolecular interactions and biomaterial performance.

The PhD position is part of the EU Doctoral Network NanoRAM: Emerging Nanotools for Soft Matter Characterisation and Manipulation. NanoRAM brings together people and organisations from across the world to train a new generation of scientists in the development and application of newly developed manipulation and characterisation nanotools in soft matter research. The PhD candidate will go on secondments to partner organisations as well as participate in consortium meetings and workshops.

Applicants must comply with the Doctoral Network eligibility criteria:

  1. Must be a doctoral candidate, i.e. not already in possession of a doctoral degree at the date of the recruitment.
