The project leader, Prof. Rubén Augusto Romero Lázaro, will receive application letters during the selection period to work in the following research theme: Optimal Integration of Electric Vehicles in the Operation of Distribution Systems Using Stochastic Optimization. In this research project, it is proposed the development of a stochastic approach to cope with the impact that large-scale penetration of electric vehicles (EVs) can have on electrical distribution systems (EDSs). It is intended to optimize the EVs charging problem in EDSs, maintaining an efficient and reliable system operation, while taking into account different characteristics from the customer side, such as preferences, expectations, and driving patterns of the EVs users. In this context, it is proposed the development of mathematical models that represent different sources of uncertainty related to EVs owners’ behaviors and the energy interaction between the EVs’ batteries and the grid. These models will be later embedded in dynamic control algorithms that, taking advantage of smart grid devices connected to the network, will enhance the coordination of energy resource management, guaranteeing the appropriate operation of the EDS. 1.

Courses are also offered as part of a number of other master’s programmes as well as at doctoral level. Around 1 000 students take the various business administration and economics programmes at different levels. Karlstad Business School also offers courses in a number of related disciplines, including the recently added Law programme. This position as senior lecturer in marketing will be connected to CTF. CTF is a world-leading research centre focused on services and comprising around 70 researchers and PhD students in the areas of psychology, business administration, information systems, working life science, sociology and the sociology of religion. CTF is known for extensive cooperation with the business and public sectors and our research addresses challenges in both these sectors. CTF is also one of the university’s two designated excellent research groups. Duties This position as senior lecturer in the discipline business administration at Karlstad University will be connected to ongoing research at CTF. The position includes a research component (at least 50% of full-time) that will be financed through one of the externally funded research projects conducted at CTF – the exact project(s) depend(s) on the research profile of the successful applicant.

  • PhD position “Air pollution and health” (1.0 FTE)
    Organisation At the moment, the Demography Department of the Faculty of Spatial Sciences at the University of Groningen and the Institute of Sociology and Demography of the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences at the University of Rostock have a PhD position available on the topic “Air pollution and health”, for four years. Since its foundation in 1614, the University of Groningen has enjoyed an international reputation as a dynamic and innovative centre of higher education offering high-quality education and research. Healthy Ageing is one of the strategic focus areas of the University of Groningen. At the Faculty of Spatial Sciences - consisting of approximately 100 members of staff and 100 PhD students in the fields of social and economic geography, demography anjd spatial planning - the Healthy Ageing topic is well covered within the collective research theme tWIST - towards Wellbeing, Innovation and Spatial Transformation, and within the research programme ‘Population and Well-Being in Context” of the Demography Department. The University of Rostock, founded in 1419, is the only university in Germany where Demography is offered as a study subject from a MA to PhD level. The main emphasis is on empirical data analysis using advanced statistical methods and formal demography. At the Faculty of Economic and Social Sciences, the Demography Program is working in close collaboration with the Department “Ageing of Individuals and Society” with a research agenda at the intersection of social science, demography, and population based/clinical epidemiology. The available PhD position is linked to the overall research topic “The living environment and health”. This overall topic links the joint research interests between prof. dr. Fanny Janssen (chair in “Mortality and Ageing”, Demography Department, Faculty of Spatial Sciences, University of Groningen) and prof. dr. Gabriele Doblhammer (chair in “Empirical Methods in Social Science and Demography”, Institute of Sociology and Demography, University of Rostock) and their research experience. In addition, the topic links to one of the strategic focus areas of the University of Groningen and the Faculty of Spatial Sciences: “Healthy Ageing”, and to one of the four profile lines of the University of Rostock: “Aging Science and Humanities”. Of the 4 years available for the position, two years should be spent at the Faculty of Spatial Sciences, University of Groningen and two years at the Institute of Sociology and Demography of the University of Rostock. You will be supervised by Dr. Tobias Vogt (co-promotor), Prof. dr. Fanny Janssen (promotor) and Prof. dr. Gabriele Doblhammer (promotor). Upon successful completion, the PhD candidate will be awarded a double PhD degree. The first PhD degree is awarded in Groningen. Job description High concentrations of different air pollutants present a major health risk in developed and developing countries. There is mounting evidence that human health is negatively affected by increasing concentrations of air pollutants stemming from different combustion sources ranging from car traffic over industrial production to private households. Large cross country observational studies and meta reviews have linked the long term exposure to particulate matter, nitrogen dioxide or sulphur dioxide to an increased risk of suffering from various heart and respiratory diseases. Living in an environment with severe air pollution is not only detrimental to physical health outcomes but also to cognitive development over the life course. Long term exposure to high concentrations of air pollution harms the cognitive performance of individuals and increases their risk of developing dementia. Objective of the current multidisciplinary PhD research project is to study the contribution of air pollution to regional and international health differences in Europe, and trends therein over time. As a central part of the dissertation project, the PhD student will adopt demographic techniques to estimate air pollution attributable mortality. This estimation method will allow to quantify to which extent air pollution concentration contributes to regional and cross border health differences and to changes in health outcomes over time. A particular focus will be on the effects of declining air pollution on changes in health over time. The deindustrialization in larger parts of Eastern Europe and especially in Eastern Germany during the 1990s will be highly relevant. The PhD thesis will consist of a minimum of 4 first-authored articles in international scientific journals, an introduction and a discussion, and will be written in English. One of these articles should be sole-authored by the PhD student. Presentations at (inter)national conferences are part of the job as well. When at the University of Groningen (first two years), teaching will take up 15% of your time. When at the University of Rostock (last two years), teaching and research management will take up 50% of your time. Qualifications We are looking for a candidate with: • a (Research) Master’s degree in a field of study relevant to the topic of “Living environment and health” (e.g. population studies, demography, geography, epidemiology, public health); • excellent study results and CV; • good writing skills and fluency in English; preferably experience in academic writing; • previous experience or proven interest in the research field of health/mortality in the European context; • preferably experience with geographical information systems; • strong conceptual thinking with the desire and capacity to relate theoretical topics to practical challenges and solutions; • strong motivation, good communicative skills, proactive and independent work. We are looking for a candidate with the following competences: • conceptual capacity & abstract reasoning; • communicative skills (presenting); • planning & organizing; • drive & enthusiasm.

  • Two PhD positions - blockchain technology
    Two PhD Research Fellowships in blockchain technologies are available at the Department of Informatics at the University of Oslo. The positions are in the context of the recently funded project called SmartMed: Secure and accountable sharing of medical records using smart contracts and blockchain. The project is in collaboration with Cornell University, which is one of leading research centers in the world in the area of blockchain. The deadline for applications is April 1, 2019. More about the position Increasing amounts of health data are recorded in health registries, with the strategic initiatives of data sharing and fusion across different registries in Norway. This forms an excellent opportunity for world-class medical research as few countries have such a high-quality infrastructure. However, it also constitutes a very high privacy risk should a security breach occur. Publicized incidents of leaked medical records pose a major challenge for the digital trust in eHealth where storing, accessing and exchanging sensitive patient-related data must comply with several regulations, while remaining accessible to authorized health practitioners. Governmental legislations regarding data privacy, such as the EU's GDPR, present an additional source of concern for healthcare registries which are now faced with severe legal and financial consequences in case data confidentiality is breached. Our principal approach is to facilitate solutions for health registries by using Smart Contracts and the emerging Blockchain Paradigm. From the data safety, authenticity, and nonrepudiation standpoint, blockchain is a perfect fit for sharing medical records since it provides an easily accessible, immutable, and transparent history of all contract-related data, adequate for building applications with trust and accountability. Use of smart contracts brings a number of additional advantages for sharing medical data by healthcare registries: consent management, fine-grain privacy control, transparency, and reduced bureaucracy and expenses. SmartMed is proposed in cooperation with the Cancer Registry of Norway (CRN), which will validate technological advances. CRN presently contains health information on over 1,4 million cancer patients. Managing and using the data for medical research in a secure way as to minimize any privacy concerns is paramount. Improving privacy control and transparency will bolster public's trust in the use of CRN data for vital research on preventive medicine. The first position is in distributed ledger technologies (DLT) while the second position is in application of smart contracts for health registries. We are seeking students who are interested in designing, developing, and evaluating techniques related to the above.

  • PhD position in Fish Ecophysiology
    A PhD position is available at the Department of Biology. The appointment duration is 3 years with the possibility of one year extension with 25 % teaching duties in agreement with the department. The position is financed by the NTNU. Job description The theme of the PhD position is thermal biology (physiology, behaviour and evolution) of fish. The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim Norway is seeking a new graduate student (PhD studentship) to research thermal biology in fish. The position starts in 2019. As climate change is making aquatic habitats warmer, fish can respond by migration, acclimatization or adaptation, but most often combinations of these strategies. This project will investigate both the acclimatization and adaptation potential of fish to thermal challenges. The PhD project aims to fill major knowledge gaps in the field of thermal biology. The main questions that will be addressed are: Which physiological mechanisms limit thermal performance and tolerance? How adaptable are these mechanisms? What are the connections between thermal physiology and behaviour? Which physiological and behavioural traits are most important for ecological fitness in a warming world? To answer these questions the PhD student will use various physiological and behavioural measurements. The techniques will likely include in-vivo animal experiments, thermal exposures, exercise respirometry, neurophysiology and calcium imaging, automated behavioural analysis and more. The work will mainly be done at the well-equipped fish labs at NTNU, but research abroad is also likely (e.g., Sweden, India, Australia). Zebrafish will be the main species used but other species may also be possible. Information about the department The strategy of the Department of Biology is to understand biological processes of life for sustainable use and conservation of the environment.

  • Postdoctoral Fellow in Marine Molecular Ecology
    Project description This 2-year position will be associated with the project: NEMOte BARCODing: Advancing monitoring of Baltic benthic ecosystems.  Monitoring biodiversity changes is critical to understand how  ecosystems respond to disturbance. This is dependent on effective  methods to assess biodiversity and ecological status of ecosystems. Such  methods are particularly valuable for habitats under severe pressure  like the Baltic Sea soft-sediments. Monitoring programs for benthic  ecosystems rely on macrofauna for evaluation of ecosystem health, but  the Baltic’s low macrofauna diversity is problematic for ecological  status assessment. Nematodes are the most abundant and diverse faunal  group in the benthos, but due to costs necessary for its analysis, its  use in monitoring has not been tested despite its potential to resolve  difficulties in assessing Baltic benthic ecological status. Advances in  DNA metabarcoding now allow for large-scale analysis of nematode taxon  richness, reducing the time and work necessary for its analysis.  However, the quality DNA reference databases for species relevant for  environmental monitoring, and the retrieval of quantitative data from  metabarcoding are important constraints hindering the application of  these techniques in monitoring. Here we aim to address these hinders and  use DNA metabarcoding to improve monitoring tools that assess benthic  ecological status of the Baltic. We will collaborate with existing  monitoring programs to sample nematodes from 50-60 stations along  environmental gradients in the Baltic Sea. We expect to deliver outcomes  like: a) identify the main predictors of Baltic benthic metazoan  diversity at an ecosystem scale; b) Assess the potential of meiofauna as  a tool to detect ecosystem change; c) an enhancement of DNA reference  databases for Baltic nematodes; d) development of quantitative metrics  from nematode sequencing data. Ultimately, this project will be  important to advance our knowledge of benthic biodiversity and improve  current tools to assess ecological status of benthic habitats. Main responsibilities The position involves field  sampling and experimental work. The candidates should have  previous  experience of field sampling, molecular ecology, metabarcoding, high  throughput sequencing and bioinformatic pipelines for metabarcoding. Assessment criteria  The degree  should have been completed no more than three years before the deadline  for applications. An older degree may be acceptable under special  circumstances, which may involve sick leave, parental leave, clinical  attachment, elected positions in trade unions, or similar. Terms of employment The position involves  full-time employment for a maximum of two years, with the possibility of  extension under special circumstances. Start date 1 June 2019 or as per  agreement. Stockholm University strives to be a workplace free from discrimination and with equal opportunities for all. Contact Further information about the position can be obtained from Dr. Francisco Nascimento, telephone: +46 8 16 49 26, francisco.nascimento@su.se. Application  Apply for the  position at Stockholm University's recruitment system. It is the  responsibility of the applicant to ensure that the application is  complete in accordance with the instructions in the job advertisement,  and that it is submitted before the deadline.

  • Post Doc scholarship in medical image processing / ultrasound imaging / Deep Learning applied on cardiovascular and neuromuscular diseases
    Atherosclerosis is a cardiovascular disease that may lead to plaque buildup in the arteries, that in turn can rupture and cause e.g. a stroke. Current methods can identify individuals at high risk but not those with intermediate risk, and it is in this group were most deaths occur. Our research is based on ultrasound imaging of the composition in the vascular arteries and aims to identify new more sensitive risk markers. In a parallel project we focus on developing new methods for the diagnostics of skeletal muscle diseases. Current clinical diagnostics is based on invasive needle-based techniques, and in our research we use non-invasive ultrasound imaging and develop new methods to detect and analyze the smallest functional units in muscle tissue. The research group has programmable ultrasound systems that can be used to customize imaging sequences for specific applications as well as access raw data (Ultrasonix and Verasonics systems), and also access to state-of-the-art clinical ultrasound systems. The project includes to study either or several of the following topics: Analysis of ultrasound image sequences to identify new risk markers in atherosclerosis, or neuromuscular disease Analysis of ultrasound images or sequences using Deep Learning methods to develop diagnostic decision support methods for atherosclerosis or skeletal muscle diagnostics Method development of ultrasound techniques for optimization of images Simulation of ultrasound propagation in tissues The project offers an opportunity to work on ultrasound image data from our VIPVIZA study, on which we recently published a paper in the Lancet (https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(18)32818-6/fulltext).

  • PhD Position On Acoustic Metamaterials
    JOB DESCRIPTION Metamaterials exhibit functional properties that originate from their 3D architecture rather than their chemistry. In this project, we aim to explore the design and fabrication of acoustic metamaterials with exceptional sound-absorbing properties originated from a microstructure consisting of controlled building blocks. With a recently-developed technology for 3-dimensional printing of foams (not yet published), the pore size, interconnectivity, and the outer 3D-shape can be locally and independently controlled. Without any optimization and despite the random alignment of the unit cells, these foams already exhibit strong acoustic absorption properties at a highly relevant spectrum of ~400 Hz to 6 kHz. In view of our preliminary results, the goals of this project are: Design of 3D-printed shape of the foams, to realize metamaterials with exceptional absorbance or focusing properties. A rational design strategy will be required. Experiment with polymerizable materials to achieve a broader absorption spectrum (including very low frequencies) or a target sequence of frequency gaps. We will provide the setup and a basic set of materials as a start, which will be further optimized towards excellent acoustic properties. For example, the feasibility of acoustic lenses, wave guides, and mirrors will be assessed. Optimize the material for aerospace applications. In particular, the lining of aircraft cabins will be a first application example Goal: Tunable soft acoustic metamaterials design and fabrication. How: By combining your skills in acoustics with our technologies for 3D printing of modular materials including foams. Why: The route of soft processing techniques opens up many ways of designing and fabricating new materials. Foams are extremely promising, as their hierarchical structure can be exploited to reach exceptional acoustic performances in very wide wavelength spectrum while keeping small size and high scalability.  Where: You will work in the Fluid Mechanics for Functional Materials group in collaboration with the MultiScale Mechanics group, both at Faculty of Engineering Technology at the University of Twente. The position is part of an interdisciplinary team of young faculty that closely collaborates on design and scalable fabrication of Soft Metamaterials. YOUR PROFILE You have obtained a MSc degree in (Applied) Physics, Materials Science, (Mechanical) Engineering, Metamaterials or related subjects. Knowledge of wave-matter interactions, metamaterials, and/or applied polymer science would be a strong benefit. You are motivated to design and develop new materials with functional acoustic properties. You have acquired some experience in microfluidics or inkjet printing, or would be interested in learning such skills at the University of Twente, a leading institution in this field. You have a strong ability to write and to orally present results. You love working in a team in which fundamental and applied research cross-fertilize.

  • PhD in Redox Biogeochemistry at Aquatic Interfaces
    The Soil and Water Research Infrastructure (SoWa-RI) invites applications for a PhD position in Redox Biogeochemistry at Aquatic Interfaces funded through the Czech Science Foundation for 3 years. We are seeking for a highly motivated graduate student holding an MSc degree (at the start of the contract), with an appropriate background in Earth Sciences, Limnology, Environmental Chemistry and/or Microbial Ecology. The ideal person is broad-thinking and has a passion for analytical methods and laboratory work. Prior experience with electrochemistry and spectroscopic analyses is desirable but not required, while a solid understanding of redox processes is. The candidate must have an interest in advancing our understanding of the link between hydrochemical disequilibrium conditions, microbial ecology, and mineral authigenesis, while developing sound analytical skills on novel electrochemical and in situ spectroscopic techniques. The selected candidate will be enrolled as a PhD student at the Faculty of Science at the University of South Bohemia and will join the SoWa-RI as junior research staff. In this role, (s)he will explore C, Fe, N, and P cycling in the water column and at the sediment-water interface of the oligotrophic, sulfate-bearing ferruginous Lake Medard (please see doi: 10.1039/c8em00328a). The primary goal of the research project is to explain how a regenerable pool of humic substances (HSs) —behaving as electron shuttles or as heterotrophic electron donors— can affect Fe redox cycling. A pilot study has recently shown that in Lake Medard the interactions of dissolved and particulate iron species are with: (i) regenerable HSs (both Fe(II)-oxidation and Fe(III) reduction); (ii) nitrate (Fe(II)-oxidation) and (iii) ammonium (Fe(III)-reduction). The PhD candidate will pay particular attention to the role of HSs in altering the intensity of various anaerobic respiratory processes conducive to iron mineral authigenesis. The working hypotheses are to be tested through electrochemical mediated redox experiments with environmentally relevant amendments The hypotheses to be tested include yours, and: (i) HSs promote the persistence of multivalence Fe-(oxyhydr)oxides in anoxic sedimentary settings and facilitate the stabilization of phosphate-bearing iron-(oxyhydr)oxide mineral phases in the rock record; and (ii) even low concentration of humic substances can shuttle a large number of electrons and affect the role of nitrate in affecting Fe(II) bioutilization. Alternatively organic-Fe(III) complexes may serve as alternate electron acceptors for dissimilatory iron reducing microbes, potentially shifting the system away from the conditions proposed above. In addition to the electrochemical lab component, the PhD candidate will acquire hands-on research experience in limonological sample collection for integrated genomic and geochemical analyses; high-resolution mineralogical and speciation data collection in 3rd generation synchrotron facilities across Europe; and will collaborate on a study evaluating the covariation patterns and significance of traditional (N, S) and a suite of emergent isotope proxies for tracking biogeochemical transformations in ferruginous aquatic interfaces. International cooperation and a travel allowance for presenting relevant results in major geochemical conferences are granted. Please send a .zip file including a letter of motivation, a CV, University grades, the contact details of two referees, a concise 1-page research vision and a statement on how does this vision aligns with the aims of the project described above, and a copy of one or more of her/his published research papers (or MS thesis). Applications will be considered until the position has been filled. The application as well as inquiries about the position should be addressed to the project leader, Dr. Daniel Petráš: daniel.petras@bc.cas.cz ]

  • Professor and associate professor in the field of Soft Robotics
    The Faculty of Engineering, University of Southern Denmark, invites  applications from adventurous research leaders for open positions in the  field of Soft Robotics at the levels of professor and associate  professor. The positions are based in Odense and  will be hosted by the Embodied Systems for Robotics and Learning (ESRL)  unit of the Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller Institute. The starting date for  the position is ideally late 2019, and it will be negotiated with the  successful candidate. Successful applicants will have the responsibility of helping define the  research programme and portfolio of the new Centre for Soft Robotics  being established at SDU under aegis of ESRL. The overall focus of the  Centre will be on soft robotic systems design:  we aim for  a systems approach to soft robots that takes soft robots as first-class  artefacts and considers how to design and build them. Specifically, we  wish to elucidate what are the appropriate design criteria for soft  robots; how well-adapted bodies can be designed  and deployed for given tasks, including collaborative industrial  tasks; how electronics and computing can be integrated into soft robotic  solutions; and how both local and distal sensing can be exploited by such bodies. ESRL's current research programme focusses, inter alia, on  biomimetic and bio-inspired robotics, in which Nature's exploitation  of unconventional materials and solution principles is of considerable  interest. Unlike conventional robotic solutions where  strength, precision, accuracy and repeatability are principal design  criteria, Nature uses "soft" materials in interesting combinations to  provide bodies well-adapted to their common tasks. The Soft Robotics Centre will build on ESRL's expertise in embodied  artificial intelligence and biomimetic modelling and complement  its existing work in robotics, working closely with existing  research groups in ESRL but also with the SDU UAS Centre (for example  on flapping flight drones) and SDU's advanced manufacturing,  composite and nano-materials programmes. The ideal applicants for these positions will have: - a doctoral degree in a relevant discipline, with experience of interdisciplinary research; - a strong research and publication record commensurate with the seniority of the position sought; - a familiarity with techniques and problems of making and working with  soft robots -- experience in biological modelling, materials science or  embodied artificial intelligence and morphological computation will be  especially relevant; - a sensible but challenging research proposal focussed on systems-level  aspects of soft robotics -- sensing, electronics and system design are  especially interesting to us; - documented teaching experience in relevant undergraduate and graduate programmes; - a proven ability to attract research funding, again commensurate with the seniority of the sought position; - a commitment to basic science, but with appropriate experience of  interaction and collaboration with the industrial or commercial worlds. The application has to state the desired type of position. Contact information  For further information please contact Professor John Hallam by email: john@mmmi.sdu.dk Application, salary, and condition of employment etc.  Employment as Associate Professor or Professor requires scientific  qualifications at PhD level within the mentioned research area and will  be expected to teach and instruct students who participate in bachelor  and master courses.

  • Postdoc on the subject of the theory, design, and implementation of a declarative programming language for smart contracts
    Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) together with the University of Amsterdam (UvA) have a vacancy in the SWAT research group for a talented Postdoc, on the subject of the theory, design, and implementation of a declarative programming language for smart contracts. Job description CWI and the Systems and Networking Engineering Lab (SNE) at the Informatics Institute of the University of Amsterdam are looking for a Post-Doctoral Research Associate with interests in the areas of Language design, (cross)compilation and automated code generation. The duration of the employment is 2 years, with an ideal start date on 1 May, 2019. The project You will work at CWI and at UvA on the theory, design, and implementation of a new programming language for digital enforceable contracts, targeting smart contracts on block chain. A general critic that can be directed to smart contracts is that they are neither smart, neither contracts: they are merely instructions to be executed in a distributed infrastructure. This project stems from the intuition that, if a digital contract aims to specify a desired model of interaction between the parties, so that parties can have a clear understanding of the consequences of its execution, such programming artifact should share primitives found in legally binding contracts. The objectives of this project are: • to design a (declarative) programming language building upon normative positions, starting from existing logical frameworks as deontic logic and Hohfeld's jural relationhips; • to develop a method for generating an implementation model, by an adequate distribution of monitoring and execution tasks, configurable by the user; • to compile the implementation model into an existing implementation language (e.g. solidity); • to elaborate on possible validation or verification methods. ]

  • Ph.D. position in a newly established laboratory Biology Department, Medical Faculty
    Specialization: Biomedical Sciences Topic: Identification and characterization of factors involved in meiotic DNA double strand breaks repair  Annotation: Faithful repair of meiotic DNA double strand breaks (DSBs) is crucial to promote correct chromosome segregation in the gametes by allowing formation of physical connections (crossovers) between the parental chromosom(homologous chromosomes) and therefore to preserve fertility. Many genes drive this process and most of these factors are conserved throughout evolution, allowing dissection of complex pathways in simpler model organisms such as Caenorhabditis elegans, one of the most powerful systems to study chromosome dynamics during gametogenesis. We have recently shown that C. elegans ortholog of mammalian BRCA1, brc-1, localizes to meiotic chromosomes in a dynamic way throughout meiotic prophase I and is enriched at the crossover sites (Janisiw et al.; 2018 PLoS Genet.), which was not observed in mouse models. BRCA1/BRC-1 is an essential protein for the repair of endogenous and exogenous DSBs and we found that in C. elegans, BRC-1 promotes the stabilization of recombinase RAD-51 in meiotic cells, which allows homologous recombination-mediated repair, which was previously unknown. Furthermore, we have identified the poly(ADP-ribose) glycohydrolase PARG to be essential in promoting homologous recombination during meiotic progression, as well as displaying a genetic and physical interaction with BRC-1 (manuscript in preparation). Two Ph.D. positions will be available, to carry on the characterization of the meiotic roles exerted by C. elegans BRC-1 in promoting DNA repair, with particular emphasis on unravelling how post-translational modifications regulate the activity of this protein. Moreover, we identified a completely uncharacterized BRC-1 paralog which might shed new light on the mode of function of BRC-1. Further, functional analysis of the PARG-BRC-1 interaction will also be performed, possibly in a shared effort between the two PhD students. Moreover, study of PARG-1 functions during meiosis also holds a crucial interest in the lab, and we have identified an important and completely unknown involvement of this protein during gametogenesis. Deep characterization of its mode of action and identification of both interactors and putative substrates will be performed.

  • Researcher in Biogeochemical modelling
    The recruiting department DYNECO (Dynamics of  Coastal Ecosystems) research unit is part of the ODE « Oceanography and  Ecosystems Dynamic » Department. It has for main objective to study how  coastal ecosystems respond to anthropogenic or natural pressures. DYNECO  conducts scientific and expert assessment activities in this field. The  global approach rests on the analysis of physical, biogeochemical, and  biological processes and is based on experimentations, in-situ  observations and modelling. The main research areas are related to: i)  dissolved and particulate matter fluxes within marine coastal  ecosystems, ii) diversity and functioning of ecological communities and  of their habitats, iii) perturbations at the population scales. Within  DYNECO, the PELAGOS laboratory focuses on coastal pelagic environment  and more specifically on hydrology, biogeochemistry, and plankton  diversity. The laboratory is especially interested in understanding how  biogeochemical fluxes and planktonic dynamics, with a special focus on  toxic micro-algae, are related to anthropogenic pressures. The team is  also involved in the implementation of the Water and the Marine Strategy  Framework Directives. Understanding the response of coastal  ecosystems to anthropogenic activities (climate change, eutrophication…)  requires understanding, ranking, and modeling the biogeochemical  processes involved, taking into account natural variability. In the  coastal ecosystem, the processes are highly dependent upon interface  fluxes (watershed/sediment/atmosphere/ocean). It requires simulating the  impact of global change at the local and regional scales. The  simulation of these processes according to various watershed management  scenarios is also a tool to support public policies. Placed under  the responsibility of the head of the PELAGOS Laboratory, within the  DYNECO Unit, the researcher will conduct research projects based on  modelling biogeochemical processes within the coastal pelagic ecosystem. General areas of responsibility The researcher’s main missions will be to develop original research projects on the following aspects: Take  into account ecological, physical and biogeochemical processes in  coastal ecosystem models in order to apprehend phytoplanktonic community  dynamics and more specifically the ones involving harmful microalgae. A  special focus will be made on the existing feedback loops between  biogeochemical fluxes and community structure and functioning at  different scales (season, decade). The downscaling of global  climate change scenarios (GIEC) toward regional (hundreds to thousands  kilometers) or local (kilometer to tens of kilometers) scales using a  national and international collaborative network to investigate the  effect of global change on biogeochemical fluxes and community  structure. The coupling of coastal ecosystem models with watershed models in France and Europe. Moreover,  the researcher will realize expert missions in support to public  policies on the impact of anthropogenic pressures on biogeochemical  fluxes, and more specifically regarding questions related to  eutrophication (expert advice, European Water Framework, (WFD), and  Marine Strategy Framework Directives (MSFD)). Principal activities Carry  on research projects by modeling biogeochemical processes within the  coastal pelagic environment and on the impact of global change at local  and regional scales Develop, find funding and implement research programs. Support to public policies demands as an expert in coastal biogeochemistry. Supervises MSc and PhD students as well as post-doctorate researchers. Reports his work in international journals and conferences. Collaborative work environment Internal  collaborative relationship: Within Pelagos laboratory: Chemist,  biogeochemist and ecologists.

  • Postdoctoral Researcher/Doctoral Student (Ethnographic research within Social Sciences OR Computational Big Data mining and analysis, especially with visual data), 2-4 positions
    Tampere University and Tampere University of Applied Sciences create a unique environment for multidisciplinary, inspirational and high-impact research and education. Our universities community has its competitive edges in technology, health and society. www.tuni.fi/en Project: Imagi(ni)ng Democracy: European youth becoming citizens by visual participation (ImagiDem). Location: Tampere University, Tampere, Finland. The ImagiDem-project (2019–2024) is led by Associate Professor Eeva Luhtakallio, and funded by the European Research Council Starting Grant. ImagiDem studies visual politicization and democratic practices among young citizens in the European context in order to formulate a model of democratic practices in the 2020s. The public sphere of today’s youth is increasingly dominated by social media visual content. Therefore, the current youth’s understanding of political action – building arguments, mobilizing, and participating – is also likely to be increasingly anchored in repertoires of visual participation. To understand how young Europeans participate politically by visual means, ImagiDem combines visual, online, offline, and snap-along ethnography with computational methods – supervised and unsupervised machine learning (eg. TensorFlow). With these methods, the project analyses images posted on social media platforms (Instagram, Twitter), and follows young people’s visual participation as part of their day-to-day activities (e.g. taking, sharing and commenting on photos). The aim of the analysis is to grasp prevalent frames of participation among young people, and in particular, the visual practices they employ to act politically in different European contexts. ImagiDem deploys this combination of methods to a comparative research setting in four countries of comparison: Finland, France, Germany, and Portugal. The theoretical challenge ImagiDem takes is to develop pragmatist theorizing of visual justification and engagements on the one hand, and visual cultural toolkits and frames, on the other. The project has an ambitious methodological innovation objective in developing AI-based analysis of large image data sets, and connecting the results thereof with ethnographically produced knowledge of everyday political practices. JOB DESCRIPTION The duties of the Postdoctoral Researcher / Doctoral Student in ImagiDem include the following: Doing research work in the project with particular responsibility over the applicant’s own subproject. The chosen applicants will be responsible for either an ethnographic subproject OR a subproject in Computational Big Data mining and analysis on visual participation. Contributing to the project’s joint analysis and theory-building Reporting on the applicant’s research for the ERC together with the research team The duties of the Doctoral Candidate also include completing required Doctoral Studies at Tampere University.   REQUIREMENTS The applicant for a Postdoctoral position must hold a Doctoral Degree in a relevant field obtained in the past five years.
