Fully Funded PhD and Postdocs at Bern University of Applied Science

Position Title: PhD position on Sustainable Main Group Metal Synthesis

Position Type: temporary employment (100%)

Deadline: Open Until Filled

Summary: One PhD position is available on Sustainable Main Group Metal Synthesis for a talented researcher with an interest in organometallic/organic chemistry. The projects focus on recent developments by the Hevia group on s-block bimetallic catalysis and the use of non-conventional solvents in polar organometallic chemistry. The vision behind this project is to push forward step change improvements in synthesis and catalysis through development of bimetallic systems based on sustainable, earth-abundant metals that will instill cooperative functionality to create chemistry currently impossible with single metal systems.

Position Title: PhD position in cancer research

Location: Institute of Pathology

Position Type: 100% – 100% | temporary employment

Duration: 3-4 years

Deadline: Open Until Filled

Summary: The research focus of our group lies on the study of sporadic and familial pancreatic neuro-endocrine neoplasia (PanNENs). We are looking for a motivated PhD candidate with an interest in our project on personalized treatment approach in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Carcinoma.

The aim of the project is to define predictive molecular signature and identify novel drugs using organoids isolated from human PanNEC and -omics technology. The research will include the use of endocrine cancer cell lines, organoids from PanNECs as well as molecular profiling methods such NGS, RNA sequencing, Nanostring and DNA methylation.

Summary: PhD position 1. Multi-scale modelling of spatio-temporal dynamics of forest patches in West Africa. Agricultural landscapes, while dominated by croplands or grazing lands contain forests of different sizes. These forest patches, although they may be small, maintain ecosystem functions and contribute ecosystem services to people. Understanding their spatial and temporal dynamics and the involved factors, is thus important for identifying ways to ensure their functions and the contributions they make to humans. Which components of the social-ecological systems (e.g. land use, governance arrangements, markets, population, climate) drive the spatio-temporal dynamics (e.g. persistence, expansion, and decline) of forest patches in agricultural landscapes of West Africa? How are forest patches likely to evolve in future considering the different interacting drivers? What are stakeholder perspectives on forest patch spatio-temporal dynamics? The PhD candidate is familiar with geospatial methods, and will develop land use – land cover change modelling of forest patches, to estimate their dynamics in interaction with multi-scale drivers. The PhD will adapt or develop Agent-Based and/or Dynamic Simulation Models comprising land actors use, management and governance of forest patches, and link it with a Geographic Information System (GIS). The model is also expected to be applicable to forest patches in other regions.
