Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University has 40 000 students and more than 8 000 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.
LTH forms the Faculty of Engineering at Lund University, with approximately 9 000 students. The research carried out at LTH is of a high international standard and we are continuously developing our teaching methods and adapting our courses to current needs.
Biomedical engineering comprises theoretical and experimental activities based on engineering and addressing issues tied to medicine and biology.
The main duties of doctoral students are to devote themselves to their research studies which includes participating in research projects and third cycle courses. The work duties will also include teaching and other departmental duties (no more than 20%).
The research activities involve development of photoacoustic imaging technology to translate pre-clinical photoacoustic imaging into a clinical setting.
The following are examples of tasks
- Development of novel photoacoustic methods for in vivo and ex vivo use
- Development and analysis of the optimal ex vivo measurement situation
- Performance evaluation of novel photoacoustic methods
- Image and data analysis
- Writing scientific publications and making illustrations
- Presenting research findings at scientific conferences
- Acting as assistant supervisor for undergraduate students
- Active participation at group meetings and seminars
A person meets the general admission requirements for third-cycle courses and study programs if he or she
- has been awarded a second-cycle qualification, or
- has satisfied the requirements for courses comprising at least 240 credits of which at least 60 credits were awarded in the second cycle, or
- has acquired substantially equivalent knowledge in some other way in Sweden or abroad.
A person meets the specific admission requirements for third cycle studies in Biomedical engineering if he or she has
- at least 45 credits at advanced level with relevance for the subject.
It is required that the student is deemed to have the abilities necessary for successfully completing the third cycle program.
- Very good oral and written proficiency in English.
Selection for third-cycle studies is based on the student’s potential to profit from such studies. The assessment of potential is made primarily on the basis of academic results from the first and second cycle. Special attention is paid to the following
Other assessment criteria:
- Master’s degree preferably in Biomedical engineering, Electrical engineering, Engineering physics, Nanotechnology engineering, Mechanical engineering or similar
- Experience of photoacoustic imaging
- Experience of spectral unmixing techniques
- Experience of ultrasonic arterial characterization
- Experience of software such as: MatLab, Java or Fusion 360
- Experience of lab work manufacturing photoacoustic phantoms
Consideration will also be given to good collaborative skills, drive and independence, and how the applicant, through his or her experience and skills, is deemed to have the abilities necessary for successfully completing the third cycle program.
Terms of employment
Only those admitted to third cycle studies may be appointed to a doctoral studentship. Third cycle studies at LTH consist of full-time studies for 4 years. A doctoral studentship is a fixed-term employment of a maximum of 5 years (including 20% departmental duties). Doctoral studentships are regulated in the Higher Education Ordinance (1993:100), chapter 5, 1-7 §§.
Instructions on how to apply
Applications shall be written in English and include a cover letter stating the reasons why you are interested in the position and in what way the research project corresponds to your interests and educational background. The application must also contain a CV, degree certificate or equivalent, and other documents you wish to be considered (grade transcripts, contact information for your references, letters of recommendation, etc.).
It is strongly recommended that the application contain a report from a Master or Bachelor level thesis or equivalent and optionally maximum one (1) scientific publication, conference proceeding or report that you have contributed to. Please state clearly your contribution to the work and state the name and affiliation of supervisor or project leader of the project.
