1. Fully Funded PhD Position in Mathematical Inverse Problems

Summary of PhD Program:

The InversePDE project studies inverse problems for partial differential equations (PDEs) and geometric inverse problems. A typical inverse problem is the determination of the coefficient functions of a PDE from indirect data. The project aims to obtain unique solvability and stability results for inverse problems and to develop solution algorithms for these problems that are based on machine learning. The project will study inverse problems for linear and non-linear hyperbolic and elliptic PDEs by applying analysis, differential geometry, microlocal analysis, and probabilistic methods. The project will also combine methods of machine learning, in particular neural networks, and manifold learning techniques, with the mathematical theory of inverse problems to invent new algorithms that are rigorously guaranteed to work.

3. Fully Funded PhD Position in social inequalities in antibiotic use

Summary of PhD Program:

The doctoral researcher will carry out an individual research project addressing antibiotic use in Finland. The project will use population-wide register data that combine socio-demographic information with health care data. The project is connected to the RESET research theme of “Emerging infectious diseases in changing environments – solutions for preventing pandemics” which investigates the social practices that drive the ecology and evolution of antimicrobial resistance.

4. Fully Funded PhD Position in Host-Symbiont interactions

Summary of PhD Program:

The project is funded by the Finnish Research Council. We are aiming to characterize the diversity and prevalence of host-symbiont-virus interactions already in place naturally in diverse pollinator species of the Baltic region, and to experimentally test symbiont-induced resistance against pathogens in these insects. Virus control strategies using microbial symbionts are feasible, and we aim to further develop and provide such innovative, sustainable, and environmentally friendly approaches to the conservation of pollinators in our agricultural landscapes. The tasks will include field work, molecular work, and both viral and bacterial community analyses, and writing of manuscripts; there are also opportunities for the doctoral researcher to develop their own research ideas.

6. Fully Funded PhD Position in Food and Consumer Sciences

Summary of PhD Program:

The project aims at gaining knowledge on how whey protein can be used together with plant proteins and fiber to produce hybrid meat analogs using high-moisture extrusion. Physical and sensory properties and consumer acceptance of such hybrid meat analogs will be assessed. Consumers’ attitudes to hybrid meat analogs containing both animal and plant-based ingredients and expectations for meat analogs will be studied using an online survey. The doctoral researcher is expected to conduct research in all of these research areas.

7. Fully Funded PhD Position in aerosol physics

Summary of PhD Program:

As a doctoral researcher you will conduct research and contribute to the development of new methods and instrumentation for nanoparticle measurements. You will conduct calibration and validation measurements both in the laboratory and at field stations and perform data analysis. The results will be disseminated in scientific peer-reviewed journals, international conferences, doctoral network events and events with industry. At the universities, the work will be supervised by professors Katrianne Lehtipalo (University of Helsinki), Markku Kulmala (University of Helsinki) and Topi Rönkkö (Tampere University). You will also be supported by practitioners in the steering group, including company representatives.

8. Fully Funded PhD Position in software engineering

Summary of PhD Program:

As a doctoral researcher, you will conduct research and contribute to developing new methods for automatically retrofitting products using software solutions. You will work with the behavioural models of existing products. Part of the product’s functionality change can be programmed, but other aspects may need to be experimented with using AI/ML. The cloud testing environment potentially allows using machine learning methods for searching for a good fit of the new product configuration to match the behaviour of an existing product. The results will be disseminated in scientific peer-reviewed journals, international conferences, doctoral network events and events with industry.
