Specialist Human Factors

Apply before:
Institute: MARIN (Nederlands onafhankelijk en wereldwijd erkend topinstituut op het gebied van hydrodynamisch, hydro-structural en nautisch onderzoek)
Job specification: Wendie Uitterhoeve, Projectmanager Human Factors: ‘Hoe neemt iemand iets waar, hoe verwerkt hij informatie en hoe verloopt het beslisproces in een maritieme operatie? Hoe doet hij dit met een verhoogde werkdruk en met een toenemende vermoeidheid? Hiervoor ontwikkel je experimenten die je ook uitvoert. Je ontwikkelt daarmee methoden en technieken om in de simulator en aan boord de operator performance zo goed mogelijk te kunnen bepalen en te optimaliseren. Ook zorg je ervoor dat deze uitkomsten meegenomen worden in onze trainingen, studies en adviezen, zodat operaties veiliger en efficiënter kunnen worden uitgevoerd.

Binnen jouw vak ben je breed inzetbaar. Je onderzoekt de Human Factor aspecten binnen maritieme operaties en je kijkt hierbij ook naar het onderzoek wat binnen aanpalende vakgebieden al is gedaan. Je werkt samen met project managers, researchers en instructeurs en benut de kennis die zij hebben. Deze kennis ontwikkel je verder en breng je vervolgens terug naar projecten.’

PhD – Neuroimmunology

Apply before: June 16th, 2017
Institute: Hasselt University (Belgium)
Job specification: Recent research by our group demonstrates that lipid metabolism is crucial in directing inflammatory and repair processes in the central nervous system.
The goal of this project is to identify key players involved in these processes using a transcriptomics and lipidomics approach. Elucidated pathways will be validated using state of the art cell and tissue culture systems, animal models and innovative molecular and cell biology techniques.
In addition, the scholar will take up a limited teaching duty in the bachelor or master programs of the faculty.

PhD – Psychology of Religion / Psychological Methods

Apply before: June 15th, 2017
Institute: University of Amsterdam
Job specification: The psychology of religion can provide fascinating insight in the potential causes and consequences of religiosity, but the reliability of many studies in the field remains to be determined – especially in the light of the recent ‘replication crisis’ that has haunted scientific research in general. This PhD project will focus on

  1. conducting a pre-registered replication study;
  2. setting up multi-lab pre-registered replication studies and
  3. seeking adversarial collaboration with the original authors of theoretically disputed effects within the field of the psychology of religion.

Assistant professor – Clinical Neurophysiology

Apply before:
Institute: University of Twente
Job specification: Research in the group Clinical Neurophysiology (CNPH) is performed at the interface of basic neuroscience and clinical neurology/neurophysiology.

We focus on cerebral ischemia and epilepsy, aiming to improve understanding of pathophysiological processes involved in these conditions and to develop innovative diagnostics and treatments. Our translational approach involves the use of TMS and EEG as clinical techniques, and in-vitro and in-silico models, including cultured neuronal networks on multi-electrode arrays.

To strengthen our experimental research, we seek an excellent scientist with independent ideas. You are expected to acquire funding and develop your own research domain within the current focus of our group. You have the ambition to create a high-profile research line that is internationally recognized.

You are also expected to contribute to the educational bachelor or master programs in Technical Medicine or Biomedical Engineering at the Faculty of Science and Technology.
