Open PhD position in physics-informed deep-learning of fungal phenotypes from high-throughput imaging

This 3-year PhD project is supervised by Prof. Robert Endres (theory) at the Department of Life Sciences & Centre for Integrative Systems Biology at Imperial College London, in close collaboration with Dr. Jan Wildenhain from Syngenta (imaging data). The project is about linking cell morphology, intracellular processes, and predictive mechanistic modelling for understanding the mode of action of fungicides.

Expressions of interest with a CV should be sent to Prof. Endres ( Start of project is October 2021.

Eligibility criteria: Master’s degree in physics (or bioengineering, mathematics, or computer science). The studentships are available for UK only candidates although exceptionally, non-UK candidates with outstanding profiles will be considered
