One PhD position still available in ImageInLife network!!!

In the context of the ImageInLife network, the Department of Mathematics and Descriptive Geometry, Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava, is recruiting 1 Early Stage Researcher (ESR, PhD student) on the project "Cell tracking in 3D+time images". The ESR will be employed in the group of Prof. Karol Mikula and he/she will work on a development of novel methods for cell tracking and lineage tree reconstruction from 4D images (3D+time videos) of embryo development. The ESR will be trained in mathematical modelling in image processing and analysis, design of numerical methods for solving partial differential equations, efficient, parallel, computer implementation of numerical algorithms and development of high-performance computing (HPC) strategies. New tracking methods will be based on cell trajectories extraction by a finding of centered paths in 4D space-time segmentations, including efficient distance function calculations and evolving curves computing strategies. The results of new tracking methods will be validated on real microscopic data in cooperation with other project partners from developmental biology and imaging.

Candidates will be selected based on their educational background, research experience, fluency in spoken and written English, and motivation to take part in and contribute to the research and training programme of the ImageInLife consortium.  Applications - in English - should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, certificates of examination results, and two reference letters. To apply and for more information on this position, please contact Prof. Karol Mikula at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. The application deadline is 31.10.2017.


ImageInLife invites to an interesting seminar on "How do high-ego personalities drive research in life sciences?" presented by Bruno Lemaitre (Global Health Institute School of Life Science, EPFL Lausanne, Switzerland). 

Seminar will take place on 17 October, 2017 at 17:00 in Amphitheatre Genopolys (141 Rue de la Cardonille, Montpellier).


On 25 January 2017, we officially kicked off our project with a meeting in Sète (France). All the project beneficiaries were gathered during the whole day in order to discuss science and administrative issues. We spent great time together and we are looking forward to our next cooperation !

The next ImageInLife meeting will be held in January 2018 in Paris where we hope to meet our new PhD students.
