PhD defence: Magdalena Schneider

We are happy to announce that Magdalena Schneider, PhD student in Sub-project Superresolution Microscopy, defended successfully her PhD thesis on 20th of October, 2021.

Magdalena was a PhD student under the supervision of Gerhard Schütz, principal investigator of Sub-project Superresolution Microscopy, at the Institute of Applied Physics at the TU Wien. Her thesis title is “Statistical analysis of biomolecular clustering and oligomerization” and can be found here.

Currently, she is working as a postdoctoral researcher in the SFB.

Prolongation of the SFB “Tomography Across the Scales”

We are more than happy to announce that the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) decided to extend the duration of the Special Research Program “Tomography Across the Scales” for a second funding period, until February 2026.

All involved sub-projects have been granted and our team will grow with the addition of Glenn van de Ven’s group (University of Vienna) and Gabriele Steidl’s group (TU Berlin – needs additional approval from DFG).

New open positions will be advertised soon!

ESI Workshop: Tomographic Reconstructions and their Startling Applications

The online Workshop at the Erwin Schrödinger International Institute for Mathematics and Physics (ESI) has just started. This is a two-weeks event with more than 50 international researchers participating. 

In the first week (March, 15th – 18th), we have mainly talks from applied mathematicians presenting results on tomographic reconstructions while the second week (March, 23th – 25th) covers the practical applications of such methods in astronomy and medical imaging. See the full program here.

Registration is free. You just have to contact Peter Elbau.
