The PhD student position concerns own research and education within the area of biomedical signal processing. This area is focused on the development of mathematical models and algorithms for the analysis of biomedical signals. The present research project deals with novel methods for compression and characterization of signals reflecting local electrical activity in the brain. Of particular interest is to analyze the propagation, causality, and dynamics of such signals. The research is pursued in collaboration with the Neuronano Research Center at Lund University, where one postdoctor is active and will co-supervise the PhD student.

The position is linked to the research project “Molecular basis of heat and desiccation tolerance of bacterial cells and spores”, funded by Nestec Ltd, Lund University and the Swedish Research Council. The research work will be carried out at the Division of Biophysical Chemistry, which belongs to the Center for Molecular Protein Science in the Department of Chemistry. The Division is located at Lund University’s Center for Chemistry and Chemical Engineering (Kemicentrum). Kemicentrum is one of the largest research units for chemistry in Scandinavia with a staff of ca 400 and a yearly research budget of ca 350 million SEK. Research within the Division of Biophysical Chemistry ranges from water physics and nuclear spin relaxation theory to fundamental and applied problems in the life sciences, with a focus on protein interactions and dynamics.
