PhD Studentship: Application of Geometric, Topological and Artificial Intelligence techniques for the analysis of three-dimensional cells observed with Electron Microscopy

City, University of London

Venture Title:

Utility of Geometric, Topological and Synthetic Intelligence strategies for the evaluation of three-dimensional cells noticed with Electron Microscopy

Qualification Kind: PhD

Location: London

Funding for: All candidates (UK, EU and Worldwide)

Funding quantity:

Tax-free stipend of £21,000/yr and 50% Tuition charges (House/EU/Worldwide)

Hours: Full Time

Closes: 15 November 2023

Functions are invited for a PhD studentship within the Division of Laptop Science at Metropolis, College of London in collaboration with consultants in Microscopy and Biology from the Francis Crick Institute.  The profitable candidate may have the chance to work on an thrilling interdisciplinary challenge within the software of Geometric, Topological and Synthetic Intelligence strategies for the evaluation of three-dimensional cells noticed with Electron Microscopy.


Conventional approaches in pc imaginative and prescient and picture evaluation (akin to unsupervised conventional algorithms and, extra lately, deep studying methodologies) don’t totally incorporate the geometric and topological properties of the anatomical or organic constructions contained throughout the knowledge. Remark of samples with electron microscopy has grown significantly and now it’s attainable to acquire 3D datasets with wonderful decision and distinction, however which require refined evaluation methodologies.

This PhD will examine the incorporation of picture processing and deep studying methodologies with topological knowledge evaluation and geometry processing strategies to realize in-depth evaluation of high-resolution biomedical photographs. The challenge might be a collaboration between the College of Science and Know-how at Metropolis, College of London the place the scholar might be based mostly, with the Francis Crick Institute.

Eligibility and necessities 

The candidate ought to maintain a superb honours diploma (a minimum of a second-class honours diploma or an equal qualification) in an applicable topic (together with arithmetic, physics, pc science, engineering). A grasp’s diploma in a associated space could be a bonus.

They need to reveal aptitude for unique analysis, have an excellent mathematical background and excellent programming abilities (e.g., Python, Matlab). They need to even have a superb background in areas akin to machine studying (e.g., deep studying), geometry processing, picture processing, pc imaginative and prescient, and TDA.

Data of microscopy or biology just isn’t essential however could be advantageous.

Scholarship: an annual, tax-free stipend of £21,000 (for 3 years). 50%  tuition charges for House/EU/Worldwide.

An additional £1,500/yr wage complement might be provided to all profitable candidates from underrepresented communities. Particularly, the stipend complement might be reserved for feminine, LGBTQ+ and disabled candidates.

Every pupil might additionally have the chance to earn round £2,200/yr on a median (max. is round £4,300/yr) by a instructing assistantship.
