ACCENT PRO 2000 S.R.L. (AP2K), seeks candidates for a 3-years PhD position in the interdisciplinary field of X-ray physics, materials science and computation

The PhD student will be part of our Research and Development team in the field of "2D &3D X-ray multimodal X-ray imaging for investigation of threats detection for security applications", especially in advanced baggage scanner techniques. The main goal is to analyze and optimize, by simulations and experiments, the materials identification methods based on various X-ray imaging techniques, such as: dual-energy, multi-energy and diffractions, using different scanning techniques that includes one-view, dual-view, multi-view and 2D and 3D static (non-gantry) tomography.

The PhD student will work closely with research colleagues from AP2K but also with the academic partner at Department of Physics at the Technical University of Denmark – DTU ( and externally, with our industrial and academic partners.

Your PhD project will be part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network, “Multiscale, Multimodal, Multidimensional imaging for EngineeRING” or in short MUMMERING ( The network is concerned with interdisciplinary R&D and training in 3D imaging and its application in materials and information science. The network offers totally 15 PhD positions Information about all 15 PhD positions can be found here.
