14 PhD Positions within the Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN "MLFPM”

Marie Curie MLFPM

The Marie Curie Innovative Training Network "Machine Learning Frontiers in Precision Medicine" (MLFPM) brings together leading European research institutes in machine learning and statistical genetics, both from the private and public sector, to train 14 early stage researchers. These scientists will develop and apply machine learning methods to health data. The goal is to reveal new insights into disease mechanisms and therapy outcomes, and to exploit the findings for precision medicine, which hopes to offer personalized preventive care and therapy selection for each patient.

Besides working on their project at their home institutions, the researchers will participate in network-wide training events like summer schools and retreats. Moreover, they will conduct two secondments of three months each at other network partners.

Applicants with a background in Computer Science, Mathematics, Engineering, Medicine, Biology or related fields are encouraged to apply. We expect that applicants hold a university degree that qualifies them for doctoral studies at their recruiting organization.

MLFPM is striving for diversity. In particular, we are committed to increase the percentage of female scientists and therefore especially encourage them to apply.
