Qualification Details

Invited are applications from outstanding candidates with a master’s degree in Computer Science, Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, or closely related fields. Fluency in Python and knowledge in Java are essential.

The ideal candidate would have a documented background and experience in one or several of the following topics:

  • Image segmentation and 3D reconstruction of subcellular structures
  • Implementation of convolutional neural networks for image processing and analysis
  • Implementation and development of advanced image denoising methods
  • Single particle tracking
  • Bayesian analysis and model reduction techniques
  • Machine learning method development

Responsibilities/Job Description

A PhD position is available in the group of Associate Professor Daniel Wüstner at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Southern Denmark, Odense.

The Wüstner group integrates quantitative fluorescence microscopy and bioimage informatics with biophysics and cell biology to study transport processes in living cells. We are part of the Danish Molecular Biomedical Imaging Center (DaMBIC) and the Nikon Center of Excellence in Microscopy at the University of Southern Denmark, housing state-of-the art equipment for advanced bioimaging applications such as wide field, confocal and multiphoton microscopy, stimulated emission depletion (STED) microscopy and stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy (STORM). We are also very active in the field of bioimage analysis and have several workstations equipped with latest hardware for implementing deep learning and other machine learning approaches into image analysis pipelines.  As a PhD student in the Wüstner group, you will be engaged in an ambitious projects aimed at determining lipid trafficking pathways across in-vitro models of the blood brain barrier and their regulation. You will develop image analysis tools for improved analysis of live-cell imaging, multiphoton and super-resolution microscopy as well as X-ray microscopy data, with the ultimate goal to develop a 3D map of lipid transport pathways across brain endothelial cells. This also includes data-based modelling of intracellular transport dynamics.
