Two positions will be available at the Department of Animals in Science and Society. Obesity and substance addiction are enormous public health problems with major socio-economic consequences. Loss of control is a key characteristic of both obesity and substance addiction, the neural substrates of which are poorly understood. Restoring control of substance and food intake is a promising treatment strategy for addictive disorders. In this project, funded by NWO-Zon
This project is part of a recently awarded STW Open Technology program titled “Optically functionalised nanoscale particles from water insoluble proteins”.The objective of this project is to design nanoscale colloidal particles from water insoluble plant proteins, biomaterials from sustainable sources (e.g. corn), with tuneable adsorption and scattering properties in both UV and visible light. The optical properties of the particles will be modified by
In the Formal Methods and Tools (FMT) research group, formal techniques and tools are developed and used as a means to support the development of software. This includes the development of formal theories of concurrency, design methodologies for distributed systems, and correctness assessment using verification or validation techniques. The group is also concerned with the development of traditional tools such as compilers and interpreters. In both research and courses much attention is paid
In the context of the ongoing collaboration between the Data Science Centre Eindhoven (DSC/e) and Philips, we are looking for a candidate with a strong background in visualization, computer graphics, and/or human computer interaction for the PhD position -Visual Analytics for Healthcare Workflows.
ContextThe Data Science Centre Eindhoven (DSC/e) is TU/e’s response to the growing volume and importance of dat
The Photonics and Semiconductor Nanophysics group at the Eindhoven University of Technology (The Netherlands, http://www.phys.tue.nl/psn) has an open PhD student position on solid-state cavity quantum electrodynamics.
Cavity quantum electrodynamics (cQED) investigates the coupling of single quantum emitters to single photons in optical cavities and has represented one of the most fascinating systems for the study
This project focuses on energy-efficient and cost-effective utilization of renewable energy as well as industrial waste-heat for district heating through the use of large-scale, seasonal thermal storage solutions. The objective of the PhD project is to use and expand building energy simulation methods and software for robust optimization under uncertainty in view of design and operational support. A-state-of-the-art district heating system fed by industrial
Molecular biosensing systems based on magnetic particles represent a novel approach in which assay steps are controlled and optimized by magnetic forces [see Reenen et al, Lab Chip vol. 14, 2014, pp. 1966-86; and see www.philips.com/magnotech].
We seek two highly motivated students who have (or soon will have) an MSc degree in physics, chemistry, biochemistry and/or biomedical engineering, and who have an interest to develop novel biophysical methods (PhD in Biophysics) and
The Informatics Institute at the University of Amsterdam invites applications for a fully funded position for a PhD candidate in the area of causal modeling, reasoning and discovery, with a strong focus on applications in molecular biology. The position is part of the VIDI project 'Causal Inference: Theory for Applications' funded by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO), and will be supervised by dr. Joris Mooij.
