  • Tenure track in Communication Studies and Journalism Studies (3 positions)
    The higher education community of Tampere University and Tampere  University of Applied Sciences, Finland’s second largest  multidisciplinary higher education institution, places its faith in the  human potential and scientific knowledge. In this community of 35,000  people, leading specialists are addressing pressing global issues,  inspired by the challenge of making changes in the world. The spearheads  of our research and learning are technology, health and society. ‍ We  are now seeking three assistant professors, associate professors or  full professors in the fields of Communication Studies and Journalism  Studies. ‍ The positions will be placed in the Faculty of Information Technology and Communication Sciences at Tampere University.  The Communication Sciences Unit of the faculty conducts research that  delves into our increasingly digital media landscape and the role of  communication technologies in reshaping not only our thoughts and  sensibilities but also our relations with others. Our three research  centres (COMET, TRIM and T7) create new knowledge of the impact of  publicity, gamification and theatre on our society and culture. Students  admitted to our multidisciplinary degree programme in communication  acquire a broad base of knowledge and go on to pursue careers in  journalism, media research, information research and (communication. Our  degree programme in theatre arts brings together artistic, professional  and societal perspectives. ‍ Job description ‍ Position 1: tenure track position in Communication Studies ‍ The  importance of communication is increasing at all levels of society.  Especially our need and opportunities for human interaction and the  impact of such interaction is growing. Technological advances and the  evolution of social media not only create new opportunities but also new  challenges for human communication and interaction. Our online and  offline worlds are becoming increasingly intertwined. Technology is  opening up new forms and spaces for public debate, and organisations  everywhere are placing an increasing emphasis on communications. More  and more jobs require strong communication competence. We are also more  aware of the importance of human interaction for our personal and  professional relationships. Our changing world requires communication  professionals to acquire new competencies and is also creating new jobs  in the field. The core mission of education and research in the field of  communication studies is to respond to these needs and challenges. We  are looking for a motivated and accomplished academic with a track  record of research in human communication and interaction. Candidates  will be expected to be familiar with research methods in the field as  well as theories relating to group communication, public speaking,  interpersonal communications or the development of communication  competence either from the perspective to face-to-face communication or  computer mediated communication. Being familiar with the Finnish  communication culture will be considered an advantage.   Position 2 and 3: tenure track position in Journalism Studies, 2 positions ‍ The  role of journalism in disseminating information is changing and  becoming increasingly important in our society. New media platforms are  reshaping the nature of interaction between journalists and their  audiences. Global societal challenges, such as climate change, migration  trends and political polarisation are also imposing new demands on  journalism, public discussion and the dissemination of information.      Addressing  these challenges will be a long-term mission for research and education  in journalism. Two questions illustrate this mission: What challenges  will the changes in our society and communication environment create for  the journalistic profession, especially for journalistic expertise and  ethics? How will these changes affect the role and status of journalism  in society? We are looking for two accomplished academics with  experience of research and education in journalism from a social  scientific standpoint. The two positions will focus on the following  themes, respectively: Position 2: The journalistic profession and changes therein The  challenges relating to the future of journalism and the development of  journalism must be studied from the perspective of the entire  profession. How will be ongoing changes open up new possibilities for  the development of journalism? For example, real-time reporting and the  transition to digital journalism are imposing new demands on journalists  and forcing them to find new ways to interact with their audiences.  Considering journalists’ professional role, status and credibility, it  is important to foster increasingly open interaction with different  stakeholders. This requires the active development of professional  practices, critical research and the ability to respond to new ethical  challenges. When considering candidates, being familiar with the  journalistic field in Finland and fluency in the Finnish language will  be appreciated. Position 3: The roles of journalism in society and changes therein To  understand the opportunities that are opening up for journalism, we  must explore the role of journalism in the context of broader changes in  our societal structures, institutions and the concept of agency.  Journalism plays a key role in public decision-making and in upholding  democratic values. Journalism reflects society but is also an essential  part of policy-making, economy, civic society and the interactions  between them. The study of these processes will shed light not only on  journalism itself but also on the societal institutions that embrace  journalism as an integral part of their activities and operational  environment.

  • Professor Intelligent Power Grids (full-time)
    Job description The mission of the Electrical Energy Systems (EES) group is the creation, dissemination and valorisation of knowledge to support the efficient supply and use of electrical energy for a sustainable society. The candidate for this professor position will lead research enabling understanding and development of the know-how and technologies needed to fulfill this mission. Intelligent Power Grids The Electrical Energy Systems (EES) group has a strong research line on Intelligent Power Grids (also known as Smart Grids) focusing on methodologies for design and operation of future electricity supply systems, with special emphasis on smart distribution networks and their interaction with higher level grids, energy and ancillary services markets, as well as connected users (prosumers). An intelligent power grid must be self-supporting, self-healing, adaptive and active, inherently secure and stable and fulfilling power quality requirements. Scientific Domain A novel paradigm is evolving in the planning and operation of the European electrical energy supply system such that increasing amounts of distributed and renewable energy resources can be integrated. With the implementation of ICT-driven solutions (e.g. distributed intelligence, machine-to-machine communication) and novel market mechanisms and interactions between producers, consumers and grid operators, it becomes possible to increase sustainability while maintaining present levels of reliability and affordability of the power system.  The transition to renewable energy requires technologies that are scalable and inter-operable, to support a smooth deployment around the globe and thus enable also developing regions to apply the newly developed sustainable technologies. The research field of this professor position implies an integral, “systems” viewpoint, which takes into account the network topology and associated constraints when devising new supply-demand balancing methods that allow for optimal integration of renewable resources. The transition towards (almost) 100% renewable electricity supply systems requires both innovative grid architectures and system operation concepts. To investigate the feasibility and performance of such innovations, lab-based modeling and simulations, supplemented with demonstrations through smart grid pilots are needed. This will lead to the development of modular and scalable, cyber-physical system architectures. Such an approach highlights the interaction between the physical system (electrical network with sources, demands and storage devices), the communication network and a decentralized (agent-based) software system for monitoring, detection, and preventive, corrective and restorative control. The research includes the application of concepts from the fields of multi-agent systems, multi-criteria optimization and distributed control to emerging grid architectures -- including storage and power-electronics dominated systems -- and smart multi-energy systems. In the area of system operation two major topics are of interest. The first involves distributed control of complex networks: adaptive reconfiguration and control of relevant physical system variables on various time-scales with the goal of ensuring stability of the electrical grid. The second topic relates to efficient energy management systems: creating algorithms and market mechanisms that support the balancing of supply and demand in real-time, taking into account electricity, heat and storage devices, plus the relevant network constraints in each of these domains. Tasks and profile for this position The candidate shall demonstrate vision on, and inspiration for the role of electrical energy in a sustainable society as well as an exceptional academic track record in this field. He or she shall further develop the group’s research strategy in the field of smart and sustainable energy systems, taking into account the key role electrical energy plays in both today’s as well as tomorrow’s society. The candidate shall further develop the existing and initiate new connections with the national and European industry in this field. The candidate shall articulate his or her vision to the industry with a view to valorization of the innovative research developed and demonstrated within EES. The candidate should attract sufficient research funding from national and EU programs to maintain and where possible expand the current number of Ph.D. and Post-doctoral researchers Job requirements Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering or Physics, or equivalent Strong expertise in research in the electrical energy field with specific expertise in Intelligent Power Grids, shown by an appropriate number and level of scientific publications Broad experience in the initiation of research projects and acquisition of the required funding from national and EU subsidy programs Experience with education in general and the set-up of academic BSc and MSc education programs in particular Demonstrated educational skills, including supervision of Master and PhD students Experience in management of research projects and preferably management of research groups A strong (international) network in the electrical power engineering research community and related industry A proven track record in initiating and fostering cooperation between academia and the electrical power and energy industry. Conditions of employment A challenging job in a dynamic and ambitious university with the autonomy to develop your own research line and participate in the curriculum of the department; A Tenure Track of five years with the prospect of becoming associate professor. After a maximum of 4 years the tenure decision will be made. If you have a more senior profile, you will receive a tailor-made career proposal.

You will be working on the EPSRC funded Programme Grant ‘High Performance Discontinuous Fibre Composites (HiPerDiF) - a sustainable route to the next generation of composites’ (EPSRC ref. EP/P027393/1). The HiPerDiF technology was invented at UoB and developed within the EPSRC funded Programme Grant ‘High Performance Ductile Composite Technology’ (HiPerDuCT). HiPerDiF is a new, patented manufacturing method to produce highly aligned discontinuous fibre reinforced composites (ADFRC). The use of ADFRC will allow generating a fundamental step-change in the composite industry tackling three critical limitations of current advanced composites, by opening the route to a circular economy model, by enabling automated high-volume production and by minimising in-process defects. The HiPerDiF technology is currently at a lab-scale prototype stage. You will be responsible for upscaling of the technology to a semi-industrial scale prototype, taking all the necessary actions required to significantly improve the production rate and optimise the raw material delivery and processing. The final goal of this project is to establish a UoB spin-off company to provide ADFRCs solutions though consulting, production of intermediate feedstock materials and the commissioning of bespoke ADFRC manufacturing machines. You will interact closely with and input to aligned projects (modelling and experimental) being undertaken at the UoB and you will also work closely with the project's industrial partners (drawn from different sectors of the composites industry). You will have already, or be near to completion of, a PhD in Composites Feedstock Production (or a closely related discipline) or possess a strong industrial background in an equivalent sector. This post is being offered on a full-time basis, with funding initially for up to 14 months. Interviews will take place shortly after the closing date. We are open to flexible working solutions.

  • Postdoctoral Fellow in Decision and Data Analytics
    Job description The University of Stavanger invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow in Decision and Data Analytics at the Department of Energy Resources, Faculty of Science and Technology. Title: Decision and Data Analytics for planning and implementation of IOR Pilot Projects The objective of the position is to strengthen research, and to give researchers/scholars holding a doctoral degree within relevant academic fields the opportunity for further qualification toward full professorship. The Postdoctoral researcher will be a member of the Decision and Data Analytics research group at the Department of Energy Resources. The Postdoctoral researcher will be under the supervision of Professor Reidar B Bratvold. The research project will be carried out at the University of Stavanger. It is assumed that the appointee will work full time on the project and that she/he will participate in the academic community at the faculty and university. About the project Although IOR projects are attractive from the perspective of improved recoveries, there are two key issues that complicate the IOR project decision. The first is decisions related to pre-investments required to ensure future flexibility for the implementation of possible future IOR projects at the time of the initial development program. Moreover, pre-investments required for the facilities to be capable of handling a possible future, and not well-defined IOR project, usually are very hard to justify. How, then, can robust IOR investment decisions be made? In analyzing the challenges and developing decision analytic methods to deal with these issues, the project will build on the world-leading competence at UiS within the areas of IOR, uncertainty analysis, and decision engineering. The objective of the project is to improve decision making and uncertainty analysis for the planning and implementation of IOR projects (smart water injection, polymer/surfactant injection, etc.) by using a generic decision-driven data-assimilation approach. Main duties and responsibilities The main objective of this project is to study the impact of uncertainty about the benefits of a technology on adoption and information gathering decisions. A decision and data analytical framework for the purpose of generating decision supporting information for IOR projects with a particular focus on the IOR pilot project decisions will be developed, evaluated and tested. A core element of the project is learning-by-doing (sequential learning) approaches leveraging Bayes’ theorem and dynamic programming to identify and value optimal information gathering sequences, given realistic constraints, for IOR pilot projects. The topics of interest are: Decision oriented Bayesian data analysis Valuing real options and flexibility Sequential learning IOR projects in the oil & gas industry Dynamic programming Qualification requirements The primary evaluation criteria will be "relevance of methodological skills relative to the research problem (s) found in the Job description”. A postdoctoral research fellowships is a qualification position in which the main objective is qualification for work in academic positions. Having completed a doctoral degree closely related to the research problem (s) is required. Qualifications requirements: a PhD with a specialisation closely related to the research problem (s) the PhD must be completed no later than at date of employment good command of both oral and written English Candidates from non-English speaking countries outside the Nordic countries must provide official documentation of their English competence.

  • Associate professor/Professor in Algorithms and Complexity
    We have a vacancy for a Associate professor/Professor at the department of computer science. We are recruiting in the core area of algorithms and complexity as part of computer science. The focus of this position is on the more theoretical sides of computer science, with an emphasis on complexity and algorithm design, possibly leaning more in one of the two directions than the other. While the connection to theory is central, applied research is certainly welcome. In any performance-critical system where the size of the problem instance grows beyond the trivial, using the right algorithm becomes crucial—and in many cases, such an algorithm may not be readily available. Both in direct applications and as components of other computer science technologies such as compilers, operating systems, or machine-learning systems, complex problems requiring custom-tailored algorithms are frequently encountered. More fundamentally, maintaining and developing knowledge about this area, including what is currently known about the landscape of complexity classes, is a core responsibility of the field of computer science, and a natural research activity for any department in the area. The position reports to the head of department. Main duties and responsibilities Initialize and lead research within the field of algorithms and complexity. Take a leading role in research-based education, which includes supervision, teaching, and course development for Bachelors, Masters and Ph.D. students within algorithms and complexity at the department of computer science. Participate in administrative activities, such as hiring committees, educational and research boards, etc., that are conducted at the department The successful applicant is expected to engage extensively in applications for external funding, e.g., from the Research Council of Norway, European research and educational agencies, the industry sector, and other available sources. We offer  exciting and stimulating tasks in a strong international academic environment an open and inclusive work environment with dedicated colleagues favourable terms in the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund employee benefits Salary and conditions The gross salary for the position of Professor (code 1013) is from NOK 619 300 - 1 226 400 before tax per year, depending on qualifications and seniority. From the salary, 2 % is deducted as a contribution to the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund. For the position as Associate Professor (code 1011) is from NOK 524 200 - 893 900 before tax per year, depending on qualifications and seniority.  From the salary, 2% is deducted as a contribution to the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund. The engagement is to be made in accordance with the regulations in force concerning State Employees and Civil Servants, and the acts relating to Control of the Export of Strategic Goods, Services and Technology. Candidates who by assessment of the application and attachment are seen to conflict with the criterias in the latter law will be prohibited from recruitment to NTNU. After the appointment you must assume that there may be changes in the area of work. The person appointed must live in a location enabling him/her to be present at and available to the institution. About the application The application and supporting documentation to be used as the basis for the assessment must be in English. The application must include: CV including information pertaining to the given qualifications and a full list of publications with bibliographical references.

Two postdoctoral positions are available for highly motivated candidates with background in cellular and molecular biology, to investigate the function of the mitochondrial protein Translocator Protein 18kDA (TSPO) in microglia. We offer an inspiring intellectual, collaborative and multidisciplinary research environment to support your career goals and provide access to state-of-the-art facilities. TSPO function in microglia: Translocator Protein 18kDa (TSPO), previously named peripheral benzodiazepine receptor, is a mitochondrial protein that has been validated as a biomarker of brain injury and neuroinflammation and is widely used in preclinical and clinical studies. Our laboratory has a long history of studying TSPO as a biomarker of neuroinflammation and during the last 5 years we have concentrated our efforts in understanding the function of TSPO in microglia. We have discovered that TSPO interacts with NADPH Oxidase-2 in microglia and are examining the molecular, cellular, and functional aspects of this interaction. We seek a postdoctoral fellow with expertise in the generation of cell-specific conditional knockout mice. Specifically, a microglia- specific conditional TSPO knockout. The competitive renewal of this work is on year 20 and recently received an impact score of 10 (1 percentile). This work will use TSPO-knockout mice that are already in house as well as microglia-specific conditional TSPO knockout mice (to be generated) in order to study the function of TSPO in primary microglia and at the whole animal level. We have a number of behavioral, cellular, and molecular approaches that are available for these ongoing studies.

  • PhD position in Gene Regulation and Stem-Cell Research
    We are recruiting a student for doctoral education. A doctoral education (PhD) consists of supervised research, combined with courses and other educational activities. An individual study plan is established for each doctoral student. For a doctoral degree, the equivalent of four years of full-time doctoral education is required. For more information regarding PhD education at Karolinska Institutet, see: http://www.ki.se/doctoral. Research group The research group of Björn Reinius (https://www.reiniuslab.com) is part of the Division of Biomaterials (https://ki.se/en/mbb/research-division-of-biomaterials ) at the Department for Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics (https://ki.se/en/mbb). The Division of Biomaterials is located at the newly built Biomedicum research laboratory (https://ki.se/en/staff/biomedicum) at the Solna campus of Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden. The group uses a multi-disciplinary approach integrating methods development for RNA/DNA sequencing (particularly aimed at the single-cell resolution), bioinformatics, molecular cell biology, cell-culture and animal models, to characterize and understand the mechanisms of gene regulation in mammals. A special focus of the lab is X-chromosome inactivation, and more recently also X-chromosome hyperactivation (Nature Structural and Molecular Biology 2019, see lab homepage). During the last years, Reinius and colleagues pioneered the use of single-cell RNA-seq in the context of X-chromosome regulation (Science 2014, Nature Genetics 2016, Cell 2016 etc., see lab homepage). The lab is equipped with all components needed for executing state-of-the-art research in the topic, including cell and animal systems, molecular biology resources and equipment, access to high-throughput sequencing machines, and capacity for computation-intense analyses (a dedicated computational server is available within the lab). The facility, Biomedicum, wherein the lab is located, provides a vibrant international research environment and in-house access to core facilities, lectures by world-leading scientist, and excellent seminar series. Applications are invited for a position in the Björn Reinius group, funded by the Swedish Research Council and the Ragnar Söderberg Foundation. The appointment will be on a temporary basis for a period of 4 years (PhD student), starting late 2019 / early 2020. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us by email: bjorn.reinius@ki.se Research project This research project will characterize fundamental features of gene regulation, using the human and mouse X chromosome as model system. The PhD student will investigate the gene-regulatory underpinnings of X-chromosome inactivation, the major epigenetic process by which an entire X-chromosome copy is transcriptionally silenced in female cells to maintain correct X-gene dosage balance. By studying this remarkable gene-silencing process we may elucidate key aspects of both development and gene regulation, particularly important for understanding active versus silenced gene states. We will utilize high-throughput methods (RNA/DNA-sequencing and single-cell RNA-seq) in these analyses. The research is closely related to stem-cell biology, cell reprogramming, and regenerative medicine, and will further provide a molecular understanding of incomplete penetrance and variable expressivity, of X-linked genetic disorders and medical syndromes resulting from sex-chromosome copy number variation. Importantly, the project will offer substantial training in modern biomedical research and will further provide complementary skills - promoting both professional and personal development. Educational outcome and responsibilities The successful applicant will acquire basic as well as specialized knowledge and understanding in gene regulation, chromatin states, RNA biology, embryonic development and stem-cell biology. The work implies to apply, master and develop research methodologies in genomics, transcriptomics, next generation sequencing and bioinformatics, in which the group is specialized. Examples of skills that will be cultivated include state-of-the-art molecular biology experimentation (emphasis on high-throughput sequencing and single-cell omics), cell culturing (stem cells in particular), research animal science, and bioinformatics (emphasis on high-throughput RNA/DNA sequencing data analysis). The PhD student is expected to take a strong lead in project design, management, data generation, as well as analyses and interpretation.

  • PhD Research Positions --Thin-film Physics of XUV Optics
    The XUV Optics group is embedded in the MESA+ Institute (www.mesaplus.utwente.nl), which is one of the largest nanotechnology research institutes in the world, delivering competitive and successful high-quality research. The institute employs 500 people of which 275 are PhD's or PostDocs. With its unique NanoLab facilities the institute holds 1250 m2 of cleanroom space and state-of-the-art research equipment.Job description Are you interested in conducting advanced thin film physics research on a most exciting application? We are looking for motivated and skilled PhD and post-doctoral researchers to work on the physics of XUV optics. These optics basically consist of optical stacks of films of nanoscale thickness and come in reflective and transmissive types. The physics and chemistry of these thin film systems need to be controlled with atomic precision. The aim of our research group is to develop the physics solutions for these tasks, such that new applications can be realized. These range from multi-layered optics engineered to show near-theoretical XUV reflectivity, to highly transparent, few tens of nanometer thin membranes which are robust enough to withstand high XUV power levels. The tasks include the fine-tuning of complex optical indices by altering electronic structures, the reduction of layer roughness levels to a tenth of a nanometer, the control of thin film stresses to below a GPa, and the limitation of thermally and chemically induced diffusion processes. These processes require new types of diagnostics with adequate resolution to film thickness and high sensitivity to chemical state. The XUV Optics Group at Twente has started a new multidisciplinary research programme on these topics. We develop forefront fundamental research, relevant to high tech applications (www.utwente.nl/xuv/). The research will take place in a state-of-the-art thin film laboratory within the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology at the University of Twente, in collaboration with various industrial partners. Your goal is to develop the key material science required for XUV optical systems based on nanoscale-thin films. This may include new types of membrane structures that combine strength and transparency, using functional layers to meet requirements on mechanical strength, heat dissipation and chemical inertness. It may also include, as an example of another project, the control of materials diffusion and segregation processes across layers and interlayers and advanced surface analysis using low energy ion scattering (LEIS) and X-ray photo-electron spectroscopy (XPS). Or the hybrid analysis of layered textures using a combination of X-ray, electronic and optical analytical instruments, and the technique of depth-tuned fluorescence analysis to identify and localize the materials in the stack of films. Your profile You have a Masters degree in solid state or surface physics, materials science, physical chemistry or engineering, or a related field. You have affinity with the realization of physical or chemical depositions of nanoscale thin films (MEMS, CMOS or related) and their optical, structural, and mechanical analysis. You are an excellent team player in an enthusiastic group of scientists and engineers working on a common theme. You are creative, like to push boundaries, and are highly motivated to address a major science challenge in thin film physics. You are fluent in English and able to collaborate intensively with industrial and academic parties in regular meetings and work visits. INFORMATION AND APPLICATION Your reaction should include an application/motivation letter, emphasizing your specific interest and motivation, a detailed CV, a publication list, contact details of referees, and an academic transcript of B.Sc. and M.Sc. education.

  • Postdoc position: The Role of Sound in the Design of and Interaction with SoST
    Job description Job description We are looking for a talented researcher in the field of Human-Computer Interaction with a strong affinity with sound. The aim of this position is to conduct research on the role of sound in interactive Systems of Smart Things, and to develop tools that support designers in prototyping and experimenting with sound. Candidates are expected to have advanced skills in sound design, interaction design and design research, and we expect a relevant publication record and convincing portfolio of work. Background Our experience of the world is inherently multimodal; in our day-to-day interactions we seamlessly combine the stimuli we receive into a holistic experience. Sound forms an integral part of this, embodying unique informational qualities when compared to e.g., the visual modality. However, when looking at current interaction design we observe that sound is relatively underexposed—and perhaps even undervalued; most designed interactions mainly address the visual and haptic modalities. Think for example of the plethora of capacitive multi-touch based interactions we have grown accustomed to with the commoditisation of the smart phone and tablet. As powerful as these platforms may be, we see many opportunities for cutting-edge work designing for the auditory modality, especially in contexts where touch screen interactions are inappropriate or even impossible, or in contexts where it simply makes more sense to make use of the unique qualities of auditory information. Our main interest in this lies in how we will be interacting within the upcoming field of IoT systems or, as we refer to them, Systems of Smart Things (SoST). After all, if “smartness” can be added to anything in our environment, should we then turn our smart environment in one big lived-in touch screen or consider a more holistic, humanistic interactive experience? This postdoc position is aimed at exploring the role of sound in the design of and interaction with Systems of Smart Things, and setting up a strong, strategic basis in that field for the Department of Industrial Design. Potential application areas of the research include Health (e.g., in the hospital of professional care environment), the work environment, and in the evolving field of (autonomous) transportation. Research position The postdoc will be embedded in the scientific research and network of the Future Everyday (FE) research group of the Department of Industrial Design at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). The FE group pursues groundbreaking research in interactive, intelligent products, systems and services. The research will be executed in close collaboration with academic and industrial stakeholders, and with students in our education programs. The Postdoc will be in charge of (1) supporting the setup of an initial research/design platform/infrastructure; (2) establishing and maintaining existing and new partnerships; and (3) setting up and writing research grants; (4) contributing to strategic publication and documentation. The Postdoc will strengthen the scientific program of the group in this area and publish in relevant communities (such as the relevant ACM conferences). The research is supervised by dr.

  • PhD position at NIOZ: Developing new methods for reconstructing ancient PCO2 concentrations (1.0 FTE)
    Job description The Netherlands Earth System Science Centre (NESSC) is currently looking to fill 13 PhD positions with excellent, talented, enthusiastic, highly motivated and goal-oriented candidates, with a no-nonsense mentality. The ideal candidates are interested in past and/or current climate research, are highly motivated to perform research in an excellent, exciting and international working environment, and are committed to a fully-funded 4-year PhD track. The project Developing new methods for reconstructing ancient PCO2 concentrations will be hosted at NIOZ. Reconstruction of the past oceanic carbonate system remains an important challenge in Earth System Sciences. The stable carbon isotopic composition of crenarchaeol, the biomarker lipid of Thaumarchaeota, has the potential for reconstructing the 13C of Dissolved Inorganic Carbon (DIC) and PCO2 in sediments where carbonates are poorly preserved. However, for this novel GC based methods need to be developed to analyze the isotopic composition of crenarchaeol. In this project we will develop this new methodology and apply it to cultures, modern environmental samples and core top and sediment core samples. Together with the 13C content of other (general) biomarker lipids, this method could yield reliable paleo PCO2 reconstructions, also in areas and time intervals where carbonates are absent. The new methodology will also be used for other compounds and isotope systems to develop new proxies. Qualifications General requirements for applicants • Candidates did not reside or carry out their main activity (e.g. work, studies) in the Netherlands for more than 12 months during the 3 years immediately prior to the date of appointment (time spent as part of a procedure for obtaining refugee status under the Geneva Convention, compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays are not taken into account)*. • Candidates hold an MSc degree (or will graduate before the appointment date) in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Ecology, Earth Sciences and/or Environmental Sciences. • Candidates are in the first four years of their research careers at the start of their appointment (full-time equivalent research experience, measured from the date when a researcher obtained the degree entitling him or her to embark on a doctorate) and have not been awarded a doctoral degree. • Excellent proficiency of the English language (both oral and written). • The ability to work both independently in challenging environments and in a multidisciplinary team. Excellent communication skills and cooperation skills are required. • An inquisitive mind-set, accuracy, creativity and self-reliance are very important. You are required to be flexible, mobile and pro-active. • Enthusiasm to attend the full training programme as offered in the project and to actively contribute to the project aims and objectives. • High interest in receiving training from supervisors from different institutes, disciplines and sectors, this will require regular travelling within the Netherlands. • High motivation to contribute to the dissemination of results and outreach to both specialists and the public at large. • Candidates are excited to move to the Netherlands and to visit a Partner Organisations for a secondment (internship), in or outside the Netherlands, as this is part of the programme. Additional research visits to international institutes and conferences for research collaborations are expected. • Strong motivation to obtain a PhD degree. *If you do not qualify for the first criteria, you can still submit your application if you would like to be considered for the NON-COFUND PhD positions.
