  The Institute of Security and Global Affairs (ISGA) of the Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs at Leiden University is looking for a PhD candidate in the field of   cybersecurity governance in organisations Project description The Institute of Security and Global Affairs (ISGA) at Leiden University seeks to appoint a full-time PhD candidate to carry out research (80%) and teaching (20%) activities on cyber security in organizations. The position is a shared position between ISGA and The Hague University of Applied Sciences (Centre of Expertise Cyber Security).   The PhD candidate will have a promotor at ISGA and daily guidance from The Hague University of Applied Sciences (Centre of Expertise Cyber Security). Security of software systems has emerged as a critical societal need, yet too often we hear about failures in functioning, hacks or privacy-related problems. We think it is more sensible to understand and fix these issues during the development time and prevent problems,

Post doc in simulation modelling of soil C and N dynamics

Image
  The Department of Agroecology, Aarhus University, invites applications for a post doc position in simulation modelling of soil C and N dynamics. The position is available for a 3-year period. Research area and duties Exchange of carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) between agroecosystems and the environment is a major research theme within the department. Gaseous emissions of C and N and the turnover of C and N in soil influence soil fertility and environmental loads. To optimize resource use efficiency, this calls for process-based research and developments within empirical and simulation modelling, e.g. to quantify measures for reducing nitrate leaching and greenhouse gas emissions and establish impacts on long-term soil C sequestration and national C accounting. The department provides policy support at national scale. This involves pro-active research, including an integration of experimental activities and modelling for upscaling.  The successful candidate will be responsible for furt

Postdoc in plant-microbe interactions

  The Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Aarhus University, invites applications for a three-year postdoc position offering applicants an exciting opportunity to join the InRoot project  https://mbg.au.dk/en/research/research-centres/inroot/ , which focuses on the molecular dynamics of plant interactions with complex soil microbial communities. The position is for three years and is available from March 1st 2022 or as soon as possible hereafter.   Job description/research project/research area You are expected to contribute to the identification of genes controlling plant interactions with complex soil microbial communities through genome-wide association scans, transcriptome profiling and mutant characterization. The work will involve plant phenotyping and genetic manipulation as well as NGS library preparation and data analysis.   Your profile Applicants should hold a PhD in molecular biology or equivalent. Documented experience with plant molecular biology is required

PhD on Evaluating the role of seaweeds in transformative trajectories of Danish food production systems towards sustainability

Image
  Applications are invited for a PhD fellowship/scholarship at Graduate School of Technical Sciences, Aarhus University, Denmark, within the Environmental Science programme. The position is available from 1 January 2022 or later. Title: Re-advertisment: Evaluating the role of seaweeds in transformative trajectories of Danish food production systems towards sustainability Research area and project description: The last century has witnessed significant intensifications of natural resource abstraction by agri-food systems and various industrial activities based on linear resource management and accompanied by insufficient pollution control. The economic development has come at a severe cost of ecosystem health and integrity, which contributes to environmental impacts such as global warming, eutrophication, water scarcity, and biodiversity loss and consequently leads to reduced or even diminished natural ecosystem services that humans depend on. Meanwhile, the global societal challeng
