Posted on Sep 13, 2016 in Education, News, Research, Vacancies

The SIPOMICS (SIgnal Processing for Omic ScienceS) research Group from the Rovira i Virgili University is seeking PhD candidates to apply for one scholarship at our research facilities located in Tarragona (Catalonia, Spain).

The grant is associated to the following research project, funded by the Spanish government recently: TEC2015‐69076‐P (DESARROLLO DE NANOSUPERFICIES Y ALGORITMOS DE PROCESADO PARA LA OBTENCION Y TRATAMIENTO DE IMAGENES METABOLICAS MEDIANTE LASER DESORPTION IONIZATION MASS SPECTROMETRY (LDIMS),
(Development of nanosurfaces and data processing algorithms for the generationand treatment of metabolic images using Laser desorption Ionization Mass Spectrometry (LDI‐MS)).

The objectives of the scholarship are the analysis of tissue metabolites by MALDI‐TOF mass spectrometry and the creation of data processing algoritms and software packages for image segmentation and visualization.

Required profile: Candidates should have a background on computer science (very  good programming skills), electronics, telecommunications or physics. Experience on statistics or multivariate analysis will also be appreciated. Candidates need to have a Bachelor and a Master degree to be eligible for the PhD position. SIPOMICS is a multidisciplinary research Group formed by chemists, biochemists, physicists, computer and telecommunication engineers that has a very close relationship with a metabolomics platform structure.

Position: We offer a 4‐year contract scholarship to develop research work that would allow the candidates to obtain their PhD degree in the doctorate program of Tecnologies for Nanosystems, Bioengineering and Energy at the Department of Electrical Engineering of the Rovira i Virgili University. The Universitat Rovira I Virgili is a public university in the South of Catalonia. It is very strong in research and takes 80th position in the “Times Higher Education” ranking of the top 100 universities under the age of 50.
