Doctoral thesis/Dissertation-University of Bern, Switzerland

The Department of Veterinary Anesthesiology at the Vetsuisse Faculty, University of Bern, has a doctoral position (Dr. med. vet.) available on the topic of “EEG Evaluation of Depth of Anesthesia under Propofol.”

Ensuring sufficient depth of anesthesia during general anesthesia is crucial for the success of the procedure and the well-being of the patient. Several methods based on electroencephalographic monitoring have been developed in humans. Leveraging our expertise in neurophysiology, our group is conducting several research projects to adapt and refine these methods for use in animals. By linking these measurement methods (pharmacodynamics) with the dosage of the anesthetic agent (pharmacokinetics), it is possible to better understand their effects.

The main task of the doctoral candidate will be to perform specific EEG analysis procedures and correlate them with Propofol dosages. Specifically, the aim is to link the dose of Propofol to its effects on the electroencephalogram of laboratory pigs.

The following references represent related research works: PMID-36174080; PMID-36952576; PMID-26275092.

Previous knowledge in EEG and neurophysiology is not required, and the work will be fully supervised. However, motivation to learn these methods will be crucial. Assistance with parallel research projects will be possible. We also offer the opportunity, if desired, to participate in our clinical training programs as much as possible.

Requirements:

  • Completed degree in Veterinary Medicine;
  • Scientific interest, particularly in pharmacology and mathematics;
  • Good computer skills;
  • Proficiency in English (for publication in international scientific journals).

Start date:
01.01.2024 or by agreement.

Employment according to the guidelines of the Swiss National Science Foundation (approximately 47,000 CHF gross annually), duration of 12 months. Interested? Please send your application documents (motivation letter, CV, certificates, references) in a PDF document via email to Prof. O. Levionnois, olivier.levionnois@unibe.ch.
