PhD:Novel nanothermometry approaches in biomedical appplications per el EMAS Research Group

Non-contact thermometry approaches, and specially luminescence thermometry, are specially interesting to determine temperature in biomedical applications, since several cellular processes are temperature dependent. These processes include the higher metabolic activity of malign cells in several disseases, cancer among them. Thus, by determining temperature at the nanoscale in the biological range of temperatures, would provide a tool to detect such disseases at a early stage, which would increase the survival rate of patients.Several new approaches are envisaged for these applications, including the development of new materials with improved emission efficiencies to be used in already exisiting approaches to determine temperature through luminescence-based techniques like the fluorescence-intensity-ratio (FIR) or lifetime-measurements thermometry, and the development of new detection setups able to transfer this technology from the laboratory to real applications in the field of biomedicine.
A Bachelor and M.Sc. degree in related sciences.
A Bachelor average mark ≥ 3
Good knowledge of the English language is required.
Duration: maximum of 36 moths.
Beginning: 1 September 2014.
Salary: the gross monthly salary for the PhD position ranges from € 1.100,- gross per month in the first year increasing every year up to € 1.300,- gross per month in the two last years.
Deadline: 31/05/2014
To apply for this fellowship you have to send to the following documentation:
- detailed CV;
- bachelor/master degree certificates;
- bachelor/master marks certificate (only those certificates with a average mark ≥ 3 will be considered).
The average mark is calculated dividing the total number of points by the total number of credits. The number of point is calculated using the Spanish equivalence (grade on a scale of 10): 5-7/10 = 1 point; 7-8.5/10 = 2 points; 8.5-9.9/10 = 3 points; 10/10 = 4 points. You can ask for the equivalence mark table for your country at:

Traineeships and Fellowships at ECML

The European Centre for Modern Languages (ECML) recruits trainees twice a year for a paid training period of six months. 
The main role of the ECML, which is a body of the Council of Europe, is to serve in general the implementation of language policies and the promotion of innovative approaches to the learning and teaching of modern languages.
The trainees will be responsible for precise tasks in a specific field. In order to do so, four specialist areas are proposed corresponding to four different types of traineeships

EUSPA logo design contest is open

The European GNSS Agency, operational arm of the European Commission for the EU Space Programme, is on the hunt for forward thinking graphic designers and visual artists from across the EU to craft its new EUSPA logo. Five finalists, one winner and up to €15k! Ready to break the mould? Proposals should be submitted by 14 August.
In the near future, the GSA should become the European Union Agency for the Space Programme (EUSPA) and amplify its scope of activities. This agency shall be entrusted with important tasks related to the EU satellite navigation systems, Galileo and EGNOS, the establishment of synergies for space data related to navigation and Earth observation, and also the setting up of governmental applications for telecommunications, space surveillance, security of infrastructure and cybersecurity. To mark this evolution, the GSA has decided to rely on the talent of European graphic designers and visual artists, be it students, young professionals or established graphic desi…
