2017BAPFWETEF287 - PhD scholarship, area of electron tomographyPosted by: University of Antwerp
Posted date: 2017-Oct-09
The EMAT research group at the Faculty of Science (university of Antwerp) is seeking to fill one full-time (100%) vacancy, under the supervision of Prof. Sara Bals, for a
PhD scholarship in the area of electron tomography
The vacancy is situated in an H2020 European Marie Skłodowska Curie training network Multiscale, Multimodal and Multidimensional imaging for Engineering (MUMMERING). The overarching goal of MUMMERING is to create a research tool that encompasses the wealth of new 3D imaging modalities that are surging forward for applications in materials engineering, and to create a doctoral programme that trains 15 early stage researchers (ESRs) in this tool. MUMMERING will create an open access, open source platform that transparently and efficiently handles the complete workflow from data acquisition, over reconstruction and segmentation to physical modelling, including temporal models, i.e. 3D “movies”. The 15 ESRs will be enrolled in an intensive network-wide doctoral training programme that covers all aspects of 3D imaging and will benefit from a varied track of intersectoral secondments that will challenge and broaden their scope and approach to research. In the project, EMAT is responsible for the acquisition of 3D high-resolution electron tomography data and the development of novel reconstruction techniques.
