PhD Position in the interdisciplinary Research Training Group 2543 “Intraoperative multi-sensor tissue identification in oncology” (m/f/d, Remuneration group 13 TV-L, 75%)

Project A4: Tissue identification by waterjet elastography

Description of the DFG-funded Research Training Group 2543 (collaboration University Hospital Tübingen): New surgical methods aim to minimize invasiveness, morbidity and duration of the treatment while maximizing the effectiveness. During these surgical interventions, a reliable identification of target structures and surrounding tissue is of major importance for achieving this objective, particularly in the field of oncology. The RTG focuses on intraoperative tissue identification. The fusion of novel multimodal sensor systems by means of machine learning offers a high potential for new procedures to discriminate between tissues that goes beyond the information content of the separate sensor data. Please find more information about the GRK here: https: // www. grk2543.uni-stuttgart.de/en/

Activities and responsibilities:

The aim in project A4 is to investigate how elasto-mechanical tissue effects can be used to differentiate between healthy and diseased tissue. One goal is the further development of the method called water flow elastography (WaFE) and the miniaturization of the measurement probe. The work includes measurements on human and animal tissue to establish the WaFE technique for application in the OR. The physical basics should also be examined; the structural and mechanical properties of living cells should be characterized by optical and scanning probe microscopy (e.g. AFM, SICM).

Qualification:

  • Excellent Master's degree in physics, biophysics, nano-science, medical technology, or similar
  • Knowledge of sensors, construction and finite-elemente simulations
  • Programming experience (e.g. Matlab, Labview, C) desired
  • Communication and team skills for working in an interdisciplinary environment
  • High level of initiative and creativity
  • Excellent skills in spoken and written English
  • Applications (in German or English) including informative documents (cover letter, CV, copies of earned university degrees, transcripts of individual grades, Abitur certificate, contact information of 2 reference persons) are to be sent in digital form (one pdf document) to Prof. Dr. Tilman Schäffer (tilman.schaefferspam prevention@uni-tuebingen.de).

    The application deadline is January 10, 2023.

    The University of Tübingen wants to increase the proportion of women in the scientific field. Therefore, women are explicitly asked to apply. Full-time positions are fundamentally divisible. Handicapped applicants will be given preference if equally qualified. The setting is made by the central administration.
