1. Fully Funded PhD Position in Carbon dynamics of coastal wetland ecosystems

Summary of PhD Program:

Tidal marshes and mangroves are highly valued ecosystems, among others for nature-based climate mitigation (through carbon sequestration) and climate adaptation (through coastal erosion prevention). Their dense vegetation protects shorelines from waves, currents and erosion risks. Furthermore, coastal marshes and mangroves are considered the most efficient ecosystems on Earth in terms of carbon sequestration per surface area. Yet, many tidal marsh and mangrove areas have been historically converted in human land use, leading to the loss of the valuable ecosystem services. Nowadays, projects are carried out to (re-)create marshes and mangroves, but it remains to be proven how efficient such newly created marshes and mangroves are for carbon sequestration and erosion protection.

3. Fully Funded PhD Position in in situ electron microscopy of metal halide perovskite materials

Summary of PhD Program:

The EMAT research group at the Faculty of Science (University of Antwerp) is seeking to fill 2 PhD positions in the area of Quantitative in situ electron microscopy of metal halide perovskite materials under the supervision of Prof Sara Bals and Prof Van Aert. Light detection and emission are crucial for displays, medical and security scanners. Given the societal relevance, there is an emerging need for novel opto-electronic materials with higher conversion efficiency and lower production cost. Metal halide perovskites (MHPs) are promising high-performance semiconductors due to their strong absorption and emission in a broad spectral range and their ease of manufacturing.

8. Fully Funded PhD Position in epigenetic landscapes of histopathological growth patterns in colorectal cancer liver metastasis

Summary of PhD Program:

This PhD scholarship clinical research allows young researchers to prepare a PhD thesis in the field of molecular oncology, and particularly the study of colorectal cancer liver metastases with different growth patterns. Metastasis is the process by which cancer cells from a primary tumor can travel through the blood to other organs and form a second tumor. About one in four patients with colon cancer will experience metastases in the liver. All too often, patients die as a result of liver metastases. We do not yet know enough about how cancer cells form a metastasis in the liver.
