Phd-position Designer Magnetic Nanoplatelets for Cancer Treatment?

Applicants are invited to apply for a PhD position at Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands. The funding allows successful candidate to work for four years. Applications will be evaluated immediately.

This PhD concerns the design and characterization of synthetic anti-ferromagnetic based nanoplatelets using state-of-the-art (and development of) characterization, deposition and lithography methods. The aim of the project is to develop a well-defined fabrication protocol and verification method of the magnetic properties of engineered nanoplatelets embedded in different media through a physics framework. In collaboration with partners the fabricated nanoplatelets will be directly used for various applications. For example; treatment of cancer, actuation and manipulation of microfluidics, targeted drug delivery, self-assembly mechanisms, etc. The PhD will be actively involved in these projects as they require an in-depth understanding and tuning of the magnetic and mechanical behaviour of the platelets in their respective environments.

Research & Embedding

The fascinating possibility to use magnetic fields to mechanically manipulate matter at the nanoscale allows for a plethora of applications. The forces arising between a magnetic field (gradient) and a nanoscale superparamagnetic particle is already widely used, for instance, in the field of microfluidics or for cancer treatment by hyperthermia. In this project will take a different approach where we will apply nanomagnetic engineering to create highly anisotropic magnetic nano-materials which allow for the application of high mechanical torques to their surroundings. This project will be embedded with the research group Physics of Nanostructures at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). The TU/e is geographically located in a very vibrant area where many different applications of the nanoplatelets can be explored in close proximity through multidisciplinary approaches through local collaborations at the TU/e and (start-up) companies. By using this multi-disciplinary approach we hope to break ground in both the fundamental understanding and bridging to applications and other fields of research.

For this function we are looking for a talented and highly motivated experimental physics candidate who is able to work in a multi-disciplinary environment and is able to translate application requirements to designer magnetic nanoplatelets. The candidate should (nearly) hold a Master of Science or equivalent degree in experimental physics with a preferred specialization in solid state physics and/or nanomaterials; any experience in the field of nanomagnetism, spintronics or biomedical engineering is a big advantage. Candidates must prove a strong attitude towards experimental physics and lithography techniques and the drive and capacity to effectively communicate and tackle different aspects of a complex problem with large independence. The position is for four years and is embedded in a larger research cluster with other partners.

This project will be carried out in the group Physics of Nanostructure at the Department of Applied Physics of the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).

Research Fellows at Australian National University

A new postdoc position in cognitive science is available at Australian National University. The initial contract for this position is 5 years and posible to extend. Applications are welcome before January 31, 2019.

Classification: Academic Level B

Salary Package: $98,009-$111,365 per annum plus 17% superannuation

Term: Full time, fixed term (3 years, possibility of extension to 5 years) with proposed start date July 2019

We are seekingworld-class scholars to join a team of computer scientists, philosophers, andsocial scientists, to lead the world in moral AI. We will identify where AI canbe maximally socially beneficial, removefoundational obstacles in moral AI's path,and design algorithmic decision-making systems that reliably make defensiblechoices.

The ANU is launching a major new project on Humanising Machine Intelligence, uniting philosophers, computer scientists, and social scientists in the pursuit of a more ethical future for AI and Machine Learning.

Machine intelligence is already used in innumerable applications that, while not explicitly morally-loaded, have clear and profound social implications, from facial recognition, to the distribution of online attention. It is also used to support decisions that have explicit moral dimensions, for example about how to allocate welfare resources, and whom to grant bail or parole. And the application of MI in fully autonomous decision-making systems (robotic and otherwise) is picking up pace. Self-driving vehicles, autonomous weapons systems, and companion robots are the first wave of such systems; many more are on the way. Many companies and governments are also heavily invested in developing more general, multipurpose forms of AI. All of these autonomous systems must be able to make morally-loaded decisions by themselves.

In each of these fields inadequate attention to ethics in the design of MI systems will predictably have negative social consequences, some of which could be catastrophic. The goal of the HMI project is to forestall those risks, and help to realise the tremendous social benefits promised by MI. The project has three components: (1) Discovery: formulate the design problem by identifying the social risks and opportunities of widespread reliance on MI. (2) Foundations: identify and answer the fundamental theoretical questions on which progress towards ethical MI depends. (3) Design: develop ethical algorithms and broader MI systems in partnership with industry and government.

The HMI project chief investigators are: Associate Professors Seth Lazar (Project Leader), Colin Klein and Katie Steele (Philosophy), Professors Marcus Hutter, Sylvie Thibaux, Bob Williamson and Lexing Xie (Computer Science), Dr. Jenny Davis (Sociology), Associate Professor Idione Meneghel (Economics), and Professor Toni Erskine (Political Science).

We are looking for up to eight talented researchers to help us humanise machine intelligence. Our primary criterion is demonstrated research excellence in a discipline area relevant to the project, and the clear potential to be research leaders in their disciplines and in the field of moral AI. An interdisciplinary background is not required, but successful applicants will be ready and equipped to engage with scholars from other disciplines, and are expected to work actively with scholars from at least two of the project's discipline areas.

Successful applicants will help us design the next generation of more ethical MI systems, in part through publishing internationally influential research in the leading peer-reviewed venues (as suited to their discipline). We expect them to go on from the ANU to leading positions in academia and industry. As well as conducting research at the highest level, they will help build the HMI community at ANU and globally, through convening a regular seminar series and international workshops.

Three of the new research positions will be based in the School of Philosophy. Within this discipline area, we strongly encourage applications from people with PhDs in philosophy, with a background working in any relevant subfield, such as, but not restricted to: moral philosophy, especially formal ethics, political philosophy, decision, rational choice, social choice, and game theory, philosophy of science, philosophy of cognitive science and neuroscience, philosophy of language, formal epistemology. Prior experience working on machine intelligence is advantageous but not required.

Though these positions will be housed in the School of Philosophy, we strongly encourage anyone who meets the selection criteria to apply, regardless of disciplinary background.

Candidates who meet the selection criteria for this position may also submit applications to the other postdoctoral positions advertised here

For all enquiries please contact Seth.Lazar@anu.edu.au.

3 Year PhD Studentship in Enabling Next Generation Additive Manufacturing

Applicants are invited to apply for a PhD scholarship in polymers at The University of Nottingham. Applications are invited up to January 31, 2019.

Title: "Preparation and Use of Polymeric Surfactants in Additive Manufacture."

In collaboration with Warwick and Birmingham Universities, as well as with the School of Pharmacy and Physics at Nottingham, the Centre for Additive Manufacturing (CfAM) http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/research/groups/cfam/index.aspx will continue a deeper exploration the area of multifunctional AM through the recently awarded Programme Grant, Enabling Next Generation Additive Manufacturing.

The programme vision is to establish controlled next generation multifunctional AM and translate this to industry and researchers. Initially focussing on novel electronic and pharmaceutical/healthcare applications, the aim is to move beyond single material AM by exploiting the potential to deposit multiple materials contemporaneously for the delivery of spatially resolved function and structure in three dimensions.

Recent research in Nottingham (UoN) has focused on the introduction of polymeric surfactants (surfmers) to produce step change performance in materials production and use. This project will build away from the work already conducted at UoN on successfully producing methacrylate:polyethylene oxide methacrylate comb-graft copolymers, which has resulted in the successfully commercialisation of a new medical device coating material. This study will produce a library of these surfactants with variations in molecular weight, monomer feed ratio and functionalisation, to develop an optimised methodology for the preparation of surfmers that can overcome the issues in certain AM processing environments. The key difference in project from the prior studies is that these surfmers will act as processing aids for the AM processes such as ink-jet printing. For example, they will produce interfaces that exhibit long term stability and the comb graft polymer structure can also be surface located to contribute positively to the surface focussed materials properties, such as biological response.

Work Packages: 1) controlled synthesis/scale up polymeric Surfactant, 2) formulation development & evaluation to define structures/activity maps for the use of these structures in AM processing & 3) development of surfmers to produce AM processed devices.

PhD Position in The Behavioural Assumptions of Lawyers in Europe

Applications are invited for a PhD position in european law to join University of Amsterdam, Netherlands. Successful candidate will have funding to work and study for 36 months in Netherlands. This position is closed on January 25, 2019.

The University of Amsterdam's Law School prides itself on its international orientation and strong social commitment. This is reflected by both its research and educational activities. The Amsterdam Law School offers three Bachelor's programmes, including the interdisciplinary English-language Bachelor Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics (PPLE) in cooperation with two other Faculties, as well as a variety of Master’s programmes, several of which are taught exclusively in English (i.e. International and European Law, European Private Law, International Criminal Law, and Law & Finance). The Amsterdam Law School prepares students for a wide variety of legal careers including law firms, government, business and industry, the national and international judiciary, public service, human rights advocacy, and academia. With 3,700 students and over 400 staff members, it is one of the largest law faculties in the Netherlands.

In May 2019 a five year research project will be launched, entitled 'Homo Juridicus, Correcting Law's Behavioural Illiteracy'. The research project is directed by Benjamin van Rooij, professor in Law and Society, and is financed by the European Union, European Research Council (ERC), by means of a consolidator grant.

The project seeks to develop a behavioural jurisprudence that makes the law's behavioural function in shaping future conduct central. To do so it empirically studies assumptions that selected lawyers (prosecutors, regulators and corporate counsel) have about how their work shapes behaviour. It compares these assumptions with available scientific knowledge to unearth and correct the biases and flaws in how lawyers think about behaviour.

The project will be embedded within the Faculty of Law's Amsterdam Paul Scholten Center for Jurisprudence.

For this research the Amsterdam Law School is seeking three PhD candidates. This vacancy is for PhD project 1.

PhD project 1 will focus on the behavioral assumptions of lawyers in Europe, with a preliminary focus on the Netherlands, France and Belgium. It focuses on prosecutors, regulators (tax, environmental and securities) as well as corporate compliance managers.

The PhD researcher will operationalize this research and work with the two other PhDs, a Postdoc and the PI to develop the survey instrument that is to be used in all three projects.

The PhD researcher will carry out 12 months of fieldwork in selected locations in the EU (most likely in the Netherlands, France and Belgium) and with the help of the PI will develop a network of contexts that allow access to the lawyers studied.

The PhD researcher will do qualitative and larger scale survey interviews with these lawyers to assess their behavioral assumptions and to compare these with existing scientific knowledge that has been summarized in a different project by the PI and the Postdoctoral researcher.

The PhD researcher will then code and analyze the data and use it to develop papers that will culminate in a PhD dissertation. In developing papers, the PhD researcher will collaborate with other team members.

The position is first and foremost a research position; yet the candidate may have the opportunity, or may be asked, to contribute to teaching activities to a limited extent in the second and possibly third year of PhD research

The successful candidate will be offered an initial contract for 12 months. Upon positive evaluation of the PhD students' performance the contract will be extended by 36 months.

The gross monthly salary will be in accordance with the salary scales for PhD candidates at Dutch universities, scale P (Collective Labour Agreement ofDutch Universities)ranging from 2,325 to 2,972 gross per month (full-time equivalent). Secondary benefits at Dutch universities are attractive and include 8% holiday pay and an 8,3% end-of-yearbonus.

Short-listed candidates may furthermore be requested to provide their reflections on the research topic.

You may send your application, preferably in one PDF file, to the Selection committee using the link below.

PhD Position in Smart Technologies for Empowered Citizens

A new PhD position is available at Eindhoven University of Technology. Successful candidate will have funding to work and study for four years in Netherlands. Applications will be evaluated immediately.

Available now is a four years PhD position in theSmart Technologies Empowered Citizensresearch project. If accepted you will define your own research project within the research project scope and collaborate with the industrial and academic partners in the project. The PhD research will be carried out as part of the NWO-funded research project calledSmart Technologies, Empowered Citizens(STEC), a collaboration between the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, the Eindhoven University of Technology, and the University of Technology Sydney.

STEC investigates how digital media technologies and practices such as social media platforms, big data and serious games can be used to empower citizens and mobilize and organize them around collective societal issues. What design practices and strategies can be identified in domains such as health, urban planning and sustainability? And what is the changing role of the stakeholders in designing empowering solutions, considering different values and perspectives?

Empowerment

We define empowerment asthe process of change that gives people influence and agency to take charge of their own situations resulting in the tools and capacity to make choices for yourself. This might be through for instance tools and methods for codesign, by enabling citizens to take collective action by forming communities and sharing knowledge and resources in neighbourhood development, or personal empowerment in the form of behaviour change, where the user is empowered to achieve for instance weight loss. In STEC we study what qualities are needed in tools, platforms and methods supporting such a process of empowerment and how to implement them together with the individual research partners. The scaling up of these insights means that STEC is part of the emerging research fields ofTransformation DesignandDigital Civics.

Research themes

STEC builds on three thematic pillars, each of which represents a specific approach to design and empowerment. In the first, we will look at the role ofdigital platforms, in the second we will look atplay and gamesand in the third the focus is on theuse of data and the production of meaningfrom it. From these pillars we will investigate a number of case studies brought in by industry partners, such as a platform for collaborative urban development, devices created to empower communities around healthy lifestyles, or a smart toy to empower young people to take better care of their oral health. Working as a PhD student on STEC

Your main place of work will be at the TU Eindhoven where you will be part of theSystemic Changeresearch group and the PhD cohort, and take PhD courses that train you to become a strong researcher. That means that you will have a social group that work on related issues, have lunch and socialize with. You will also have a strong connection to the Hogeschool van Amsterdam's research group ofPlay and Civic Media, providing you with further colleagues and collaborators in Amsterdam apart from the strong setup in Eindhoven. As a PhD student you will start out by defining your research project primarily within one of the research themes above (though expect some crossover): This starts with a literature review and summary of salient examples. This project should be achievable within two constraints: it has to be related to citizen empowerment, and it should preferably be in collaboration with one or more of our project partners - see below. We will help you shape your project to fit within the STEC frame.

With your research agenda identified, you will collaborate actively with one or more of our industrial partners in STEC: OneArchitecture, PlayTheCity, TransformCity, Philips, KPN or IJsFontein. This you will do with the help of your daily supervisor, professor Ben Schouten, and in close collaboration with the postdoc on the research project, Dr. Nicolai Brodersen Hansen. The outputs of this work will be designs: requirements, concepts, prototypes and design methods, about which you will write papers in collaboration with your supervisor and the postdoc on the project. As this position is in collaboration with the University Technology Sydney (UTS) you will spend one year (conditions can be negotiated) working with the group of Professor Kees Dorst there. STEC also encompasses Dr. Tilde Bekker and Dr. Martijn de Waal (HvA), who will become co-supervisors on your project and collaborate on papers and research.

Your work, and STEC, follows a research-through-design approach where we use design work as a way of generating research knowledge. That means that you must be willing to jump between literature and theorizing and doing practical design work within the context of our industrial research partners. While initially daunting, this also means that you have the opportunity to hone technical interests as well as research and design skills.

Project description

Rhonda Snook's Lab in Department of Zoology at Stockholm University is seeking a PhD student interested in sexual selection and speciation. The long-term goal of this research is to understand the mechanisms of early reproductive isolation, a central issue for understanding the origin of biodiversity.

Our lab studies the phenotypic and genetic factors influencing successful (or not) reproduction, particularly focussing on the potential role of sexual selection in mediating fertilization compatibility. We use a variety of different Drosophila species to address this broad research area. Our approaches commonly involve experimentation in controlled environments and more recently bioinformatics. The current project will use different populations of Drosophila montana that exhibit different patterns of reproductive compatibility to understand the genetic basis and evolution of early reproductive isolation. You can find additional information about research in the Snook lab here.

The PhD position is for 4 years and funding by Vetenskapsrdet and the department. The start date is flexible but sooner is preferred. An undergraduate background in evolution and genetics is preferred, as is prior research experience. Highly relevant experience includes application of molecular genetic techniques or analysis of genome data. Prior experience in rearing Drosophila is helpful but not essential. Students must also have a passion for science, a sense of humor, and an ability to work with others, all of which are needed to make science worthwhile and fun. The working language of the group is English. For more information, please email Rhonda Snook, rhonda.snook@zoologi.su.se.

The Snook Lab is in the Department of Zoology, consisting of a vibrant international community, and five interactive and collaborative divisions: Ecology, Ethology, Functional Morphology, Population Genetics, and Systematics and Evolution.

PhD Candidate for Developing Modelling and Optimising Highly Integrated Modular Drive Inverter Concepts

ETH Zurich, Switzerland is inviting applicants to apply for a PhD position. There is no application deadline for this position.

The Laboratory for High Power Electronic Systems (HPE) at the Department of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering performs international leading research on power electronic converter systems required for example in future energy distribution systems for renewable energy sources or in traction applications. A further research focus is on solid state pulse modulator systems for medical applications (imaging/cancer treatment) and accelerators. For an upcoming research project on new concepts for modular drive inverters, we are recruiting a new position.We are looking for outstanding, highly motivated individuals interested in pursuing Ph.D. research in the multi-disciplinary and challenging area of modular integrated power electronic inverter systems. Inverter systems are widely used for example in industry for process automation, interfacing renewable energy sources, and also in electric vehicles. For increasing the power density and efficiency as well as reducing the costs, in the project new highly reliable converter topologies, which enable a system integration as well as redundant operation, should be developed. There, also the load behaviour (e.g. of an electrical machine) connected to the inverter should be included in the considerations. After identifying the best overall concept, the converter system including the load should be comprehensively modelled. The developed models are the basis for a system level optimisation for identifying the operating parameters resulting in the highest efficiency, compactness, and reliability. For verifying the new concepts as well as the developed models, prototype systems of single modules and the full system should be built and evaluated in detail. You may expect a challenging and scientifically highly exciting full-time position in a dynamic, international team at one of the world-wide leading technical universities. Furthermore, we strongly support participation at international conferences and offer a competitive salary, excellent benefits as well as outstanding research and laboratory facilities.

The candidate must have a diploma/M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering and/or physics with excellent grades, fundamental knowledge of power electronic converter systems, good communication skills, fluency in English and the willingness to work hard as part of an international team.

Job assignment

High-speed videography has become a standard tool within science nowadays, with the possibility of filming up to 1 million frames per second, i.e. one frame every microsecond. However, many phenomena in nature occur on time scale where even a single microsecond would be considered a very long time. Examples are rapid chemical reactions, light-based phenomena and plasmas. These processes may occur on a few picoseconds, or sometimes even faster, which is several orders of magnitude faster than what commercial high-speed cameras are capable of filming. Our understanding of the dynamics for ultrafast phenomena is thus very limited.

Entry requirements

Very good oral and written proficiency in English

Basis of assessment

Selection to doctoral studies is based on the expected ability to perform well and profit from the studies.

Consideration will also be given to good collaborative skills, drive, and independence, as well as how the applicant, through his or her experience and skills, is deemed to have the abilities necessary for successfully completing the third-cycle programme.

Only those who are or have been admitted to PhD-studies may be appointed to a PhD position. A PhD position is an employment with the main duty to be engaged in PhD studies according to the study plan. The duration of PhD studies is 4 years' full-time studies. In addition, teaching and other institutional duties normally occur at a level of at most 20% of full time. The position is then extended correspondingly, however not longer than corresponding to 5 years' full-time employment. PhD positions are subject to special regulations. These can be found in the Swedish Higher Education Ordinance (1993:100), chapter 5, 1-7 .

Application procedure

Apply for the position via the link at the bottom of the vacancy notice. Applications can be written in Swedish or English, and include a cover letter stating the reasons why you are interested in the position and in what way the research project corresponds to your interests and educational background.
