VU Amsterdam – PhD position ‘Female reproductive toxicity of endocrine disruptingchemicals: characterization of ovarian-specific steroidogenesis’

This PhD position will be embedded in the EU project FREIA “Female Reproductive toxicity of Endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs): a human evidence-based screening and Identification Approach”. FREIA aims to improve test methods to assess female reproductive toxicity in regulatory frameworks. This PhD project will specifically focus on the effects of EDCs on ovarian steroidogenesis during fetal development, pubertal and adult age and link this to female fertility. Continue reading

Amsterdam UMC (AMC) – PhD Student on Deformable Biomechanical Transformation Modeling for Image Registration

In this project, we aim to go beyond the proof-of-concept stage of a novel, multi-objective, approach to deformable image registration for which a pilot implementation was previously made by the Amsterdam UMC, location AMC and Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica. We currently specifically seek a PhD candidate for the subproject that mainly focuses on the design of efficient representations of meshes that can be outfitted with biomechanical properties to serve as the transformation model over which optimization proceeds.
