Jobs and Internships

Nalecz Institute of Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering PAS
Warsaw, Poland
offers the PhD student position
in the launching OPUS project „ Optimizing Dialysate Bicarbonate Concentration During Hemodialysis by Mathematical Modeling”
sponsored by the National Research Center, Poland

Profile of candidates: This competition is open to all persons with:
• Experience in working with ordinary differential equations
• Experience in computer programming, especially numerical methods
• Fluent English in speech and writing
• Familiarity with modeling of biological and/or medical problems

Applications should contain (in English):
(a) application and motivation letter
(b) CV
(c) copy of MSc diploma
(d) letter from the tutor dr John Kenneth Leypoldt (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) with the acceptance of candidate for this position
(e) letter of reference from candidate's previous tutor or other scientist;
(f) list of lectures and exercises passed at the university with grades;
(d) contact information, including e‐mail address and phone number;
(g) any additional information on candidate’s abilities (certified by suitable documents) will be an advantage.

Application deadline: January 10, 2019, 12:00 Central European time;

PhD Scholarship: 4500 PLN for 36 months and 3000 for next 12 months.

Research topics:
Approximately 2 million people worldwide receive routine, thrice-weekly treatments by hemodialysis to stay alive. Treatment of such kidney failure patients allows the administration of bicarbonate buffer via the dialysis solution to control body fluid pH in these patients; however, the optimal amount and method for prescribing the bicarbonate concentration in the dialysis solution is unclear.
The main objective of this project is to explore potential new approaches for optimizing the amount and method for prescribing the bicarbonate concentration-time profile in the dialysis solution to better control body fluid pH in hemodialysis patients using a mathematical model.
The project will develop a comprehensive model of acid-base and bicarbonate biochemistry in the blood and whole body of kidney failure patients treated by hemodialysis. The model is necessarily complex and requires knowledge of chemistry, biomedical transport phenomena, and numerical mathematics. Once developed, the mathematical model will be compared with clinical kinetic data collected from hemodialysis patients. The comparison of model predictions with clinical data will allow optimization of physiological parameters and suggest novel methods for bicarbonate administration. The developed integrative model may also be applied in other biomedical engineering applications in medicine, mechanical ventilation and extracorporeal carbon dioxide removal and contribute to the design of virtual human physiology for medical purposes.

Task description:
After getting acquainted with the problem of acid-base balance in patients on hemodialysis, the student works on the model based on the previous models, develops the code for the model, and works on application of the model for the description of different dialysis conditions, patient’s clinical status and available clinical data to propose a new method for bicarbonate administration. The method is tested in a clinical study carried out as a part of the project.

Recruitment procedure: Candidates should submit their applications before 10 of January 2019, 12:00, to the HR section (IBBE PAS, Ks. Trojdena 4 str, 02-109 Warsaw, room 703) or to e-mail address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

/We are looking for talented and enthusiastic PhD students to join the biomedical optics group/

Position: PhD Position in the project: “Brain injury and trauma monitoring using advanced photonics”. The position is part of the EU Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN).

Number of positions: 1

Institution: Nalecz Institute of Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering, Polish Academy of Science, Warsaw, POLAND.

Position starts on: fourth quarter of 2016 (negotiable)

Background/Project Description

IBIB is offering a PhD-studentship to a very ambitious candidate who wishes to enhance his/her scientific career in the field of Medical Optics, and acquire a doctoral degree.

The main goal is to develop, construct and validate a non–invasive photonic tool for application in neuro-critical care units. If you apply, you have an opportunity becoming a part of the international team working on modern optical brain imaging methods. The position is part of a EU Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN).

We would like to offer you an extraordinary opportunity for unique PhD studies system. Candidates will have an opportunity to travel among 11 different Universities and scientific Institutes. They will study during seminars, in laboratories and in clinics to use that knowledge in developing the tool for brain injury and trauma monitoring.

While studying researchers will get a great chance for cooperation with hospitals and industry. Participants will get a chance to acquire vast knowledge on commercial exploitation of new medical devices, their safety certification, ethical approval procedures and other aspects. The researcher will be part of the young and motivated team led by Prof. Adam Liebert.

The Institute has its own, individual system of doctoral degree. Currently our Institute has 20 PhD students and the vigorous Student Council. IBIB is a part of Biocentrum Ochota, which is an organization associating other institutes of Polish Academy of Science. During your PhD program you will be given an opportunity to attend lectures at different Institutes and Universities in Warsaw.

Entry requirements of Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions: The applicant should be a postgraduate researcher in the first four years (full-time equivalent) of their research activity, including the period of research training, who has not been awarded a doctoral degree.

Mobility rule: The researcher must not have resided or carried out his/her main activity (studies, work) in Poland for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to his/her recruitment.

An application must contain the following documents in English:

  • A cover letter describing personal motivation to apply for this position
  • Candidate’s CV with contact information for at least 2 references
  • A copy of degree certificates and associated certificates

The application should be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by the 31th of October 2016. The most promising candidates will be invited for an interview in person or by phone/skype.
