1. Fully Funded PhD Position in applied statistics in monitoring pesticide effects

Summary of PhD Program:

The main aim of environmental risk assessment is to assign magnitudes and probabilities to adverse effects of human impact. A key parameter used in chemical risk assessment is the benchmark dose, identifying the dose associated with a predefined deviation from non-treated controls in the testsystem investigated. The benchmark dose methodology relies on non-linear dose-response models. The methodology is well-established for univariate data, such as a growth or mortility measured at a single point in time, but less so for more complex data structures such hierarchical data based on repeated experiments or time series, which have the advantage of closer resembling reality and accordingly provide more valuable input for risk assessments. In addition, as toxicity is a process in time and exposure concentrations often vary in time (chemicals degrade in the environment, and/or are added repeatedly), statistical methods to describe effect development in time as a function of exposure is becoming increasingly important tools for chemical risk assessment.

5. Fully Funded PhD Position in Environmental Toxicology

Summary of PhD Program:

The objective of the current PhD is to test the ability of TKTD models for primary producers to predict effects of chemical mixtures of herbicides, applied at variable exposures mimicking those occurring from drift and run-off scenarios under variable temperature regimes. We expect that the will parameterise the TKTD model for Lemna minor for herbicides with different toxicological modes of action at different temperatures. Then the models will be validated under variable exposure and temperature scenarios of the individual herbicides and their mixtures, mimicking exposure scenarios predicted by chemical fate models such as the FOCUS model.

6. Fully Funded PhD Position in Environmental Toxicology

Summary of PhD Program:

We expect that the PhD will establish the significance of architecture (surface to volume ratio), surface properties (cuticula and cell wall composition) and methods of carbon acquisition (from air, sediment via lacuna tissue, or from the water as CO and/or HCO3) in determining species sensitivities of primary producers. The focus will be on determining the time to manifestation of effects on photosynthesis and growth parameters, and the time to recovery. The results will be used to parameterise TKTD models, and to explore which parameters have the largest effects on species differences, and to what extent the models developed for one species and one chemical mode of action can be extrapolated to other species and other chemicals.

7. Fully Funded PhD Position in philosophy

Summary of PhD Program:

The larger project is about the hypothesis that vague and ambiguous theorizing in cognitive neuroscience is a cause of the low replicability of experimental studies. More than half of the studies in psychology do not replicate. Researchers commonly blame poor methodological and statistical practices. Recently, a growing number of researchers have argued that the crisis is due to poor theories. The aim of the project is to use the analytical tools of philosophy of science to assess the claim that absence of proper theorizing is the root cause of low replicability and to understand the type of theory needed to alleviate the crisis.

9. Fully Funded PhD Position in theoretical reinforcement learning

Summary of PhD Program:

Reinforcement Learning (RL) aims at developing computer systems, capable of learning an unknown dynamic environment so as to maximize a notion of reward. Relaible application of AI crucially relies on RL algorithms with theoretical performance guranatees. Most of existing algorithms developed for complex RL tasks do not admit such guarantees, and the research on theoretical RL lags far behind pratical RL. An RL task is often mathematically modelled as a mathematical object called a Markov Decision Process (MDP). An RL agent wishes to learn a near-optimal bevahoir through maximizing a notion of reward function in the underlying MDP, which is assumed unknown initially. Its performance in doing so is assessed through performance measures such as regret or sample complexity. In offline RL, the agent relies on pre-collected data without further exploration, whereas in online RL, it interacts with the MDP in an online manner and aims to balance exploration and exploitation. In both settings, the agent wishes to identify a near-optimal control policy yielding as much as reward as possible.

11. Fully Funded PhD Position in medical image analysis

Summary of PhD Program:

This project is focused on learning from combinations of such labeled and unlabeled medical imaging data, with unsupervised and semi-supervised learning and so-called self-supervised techniques. Self-supervised methods are state of the art in a number of computer vision problems and language models that learn unsupervised and semi-supervised are currently changing society through language processing, but have so far not found wide adoption in the medical imaging domain.

The PhD project goals are to investigate the learning and scaling potential of existing and developed methods and investigate their benefits for analysis of longitudinal images by using the large amounts of oncology imaging data available in hospital databases. This could potentially have wide impact on medical image analysis and processing, however, the PhD project will also run side-by-side with a medical PhD project at the Department of Oncology at Rigshospitalet, which aims to use the results of the method development and analysis to specifically improve risk modelling of tumor recurrence and side-effects after treatment.

12. Fully Funded PhD Position in membrane protein biochemistry and peptide drug discovery

Summary of PhD Program:

The Rogers Lab is focused on the discovery of new research ligands and drug-leads for disease linked protein targets. To do this, we manipulate ribosomes to accept unnatural amino acids: amino acid chemical structures not present in the universal genetic code. Reprogramming the ribosome allows for synthesis of peptides with a stable ‘drug-like’ cyclic structure. We then screen trillions of these cyclic peptides (more molecules than there are stars in the galaxy) to isolate molecules with novel drug-like properties. Our researchers use a wide-range of biomolecular experimental techniques, from DNA and RNA molecular biology to solid-phase peptide synthesis. These are combined with specialty techniques using ribozymes, chemically synthesized unnatural amino acids and ultra-high throughput peptide screening.
