Här finns ett samlat utbud av alla kurser som har getts vid fakulteten från 1 januari 2016 och framåt


Introduction to mathematics for researchers 170817-180601

Tid: 2017-08-17

Evenemangstyp: Doktorandkurs

Refresh your knowledge in maths and get a deeper understanding of concepts and theory! Here we offer a broad and basic graduate course in mathematics. For problem solving and verification of your results you will learn how to use the computer efficiently for graphs, numerical calculations and algebra.

Approximate Bayesian Computation 180115-180317

Tid: 2018-01-15

Evenemangstyp: Doktorandkurs

Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC) is an increasingly popular inference paradigm in applications where traditional (Bayesian or frequentist) inference is difficult because the likelihood function is e.g. computationally costly to evaluate or unavailable in closed, tractable form. In the course, we will start by briefly studying traditional Bayesian inference and different kinds of simulation-based inference methods in general. Then we proceed to ABC, covering theoretical and computational aspects including summary statistics for likelihood approximation, posterior sampling methods including rejection, markov chain monte carlo, and population monte carlo methods, as well as model selection. The course topics will to some extent be decided during the course because part of the examination will be through lectures given by the participants.

Optical Tweezers and Optical Manipulation 180120-181231

Tid: 2018-01-20

Evenemangstyp: Doktorandkurs

An optical trap (or optical tweezers) is generated by focusing a laser beam to a tiny spot. The high intensity in this tiny spot is able to attract and trap small (microscopic) particles present in solution, such as living cells and small colloidal particles. In recent years, optical traps have been more and more widely used in various sub-disciplines within physics and biology. For example, optical tweezers have been employed to measure the small forces (in the range of piconewton down to femtonewton) generated by biomolecules (e.g. the force required to pull a DNA strain), by microorganisms (e.g. the attachment force between a bacterium and a substrate), and by viruses (e.g. the force required to pack the virus DNA into its capsid). Optical tweezers have also been employed to study the properties of matter on microscopic scales and to study statistical physics.

Research ethics in the Faculty of Science 180219-180329

Tid: 2018-02-19

Evenemangstyp: Doktorandkurs

Ethical awareness is important to all scientific work. However, occurring ethical scandals signal a lack in this respect. Therefore, in order to secure the status and authority of science and the scientific professions there is a need to improve ethics in scientific training. The Faculty of Science now offers a PhD course that aims to improve this kind of training, and to support the participants in performing their own academic work in an ethically conscious way. The course will be hosted by the Department of Philosophy, Linguistics and Theory of Science.
