  The Center for the Foundations and Methods in Private Law (CFMP) is looking for a full-time PhD student for a research project starting in the fall of 2022 (starting date to be agreed). YOUR TASKS At least 90% of your assignment will be spent on academic research in preparation of a doctoral dissertation. This dissertation can be written either in English or Dutch. You will write a doctoral dissertation about either ‘Rethinking Legal Ignorance: Accessibility of the Law in the 21st Century’ or a self-chosen topic. That topic is open, but should be linked /related to at least one of the following areas: legal theory (jurisprudence) and/or methods of academic legal research. Larger fields in which the topic can potentially be situated (but is by no means required to do so) are e.g. ‘Methods and applications of analytically deconstructive research’, ‘Critically assessing traditional doctrinal legal scholarship’, ‘Private law in context’, ‘Future-proof private law’ or ‘Beyond the publi

  On July 1st 2021, a EU funded research project called DECIDE with 19 partners in 11 countries will start started for a period of five years. About 9 PhD students and several postdoctoral researchers will be are hired by the partner organizations In the DECIDE project. The DECIDE project will develop aims at developing data-driven decision support tools, which present (i) robust and early signals of disease emergence and options for diagnostic confirmation; and (ii) options for controlling the disease along with their implications in terms of disease spread, economic burden and animal welfare. DECIDE will focuses on respiratory and gastro-intestinal syndromes in the three most important terrestrial livestock species (pigs, poultry, cattle) and on growth reduction and mortality in salmonids. For each of these, we will (i) identify the stakeholder needs; (ii) determine the burden of disease and costs of control measures; (iii) develop data sharing frameworks based on federated data a

Postdoctoral position in Department of Applied Physics

  The research unit Nuclear Fusion (infusion) of the department of Applied Physics at Ghent University is looking for a postdoctoral researcher in the field of fusion data science. Candidates preferably have a background in fusion plasma physics or fusion technology, as well as experience or a strong interest in data science applications for fusion. The research will be situated in the area of integrated data analysis (sensor fusion) for fusion diagnostics, aimed in particular at real-time applications in DEMO (see below for further details). We offer the following: • A postdoctoral research position for 1 year, extendable to a total of 3 years. • An exciting research environment at the intersection of theory and application in the multi-disciplinary research domain of fusion data science. • The possibility to participate in international conferences and collaborations. The tentative starting date is September 1, 2022. Background and research topics: The research on controlled nucle

  Thermo-Elastohydrodynamic Lubrication (TEHL) is a specific lubrication regime that typically occurs in classic machine components such as rolling element bearings, gears, cam-follower systems, etc., and is therefore very relevant in many machine applications. TEHL is characterized by thin lubricant films (50 nm-1 m) in which the hydrodynamic pressure can reach values up to GPa range (1-4 GPa), inducing elastic deformation of the opposing contact surfaces in the order of the film thickness. At such high pressures, the lubricant becomes compressible and behaves in a highly non-Newtonian way by local solidification and shear-thinning. Accurate computational simulation of TEHL by means of continuum models requires therefore an accurate description of the lubricant’s compressibility and the rheology (i.e. piezo-viscosity and shear thinning) as well as the thermal properties (specific heat, conductivity), wall slip and cavitation. Today, however, the thermomechanical properties of only

  The Laboratory of Protistology and Aquatic Ecology (Ghent University) and Comparative Network Biology group (VIB) invite applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship for 1 year and extended with another 3 years (after positive evaluation) to study diatom speciation and adaptation. Our understanding the processes underlying speciation and the genetic/phenotypic diversity of diatoms and other microalgae remains very limited, yet it is of crucial importance to predict their response to global change. The successful applicant will employ a combination of field, laboratory and population-genomic approaches to quantify gene flow in diatom metapopulations, to study local adaptation and to reconstruct the impact of past and ongoing gene flow on the evolution of their pan-genome. We offer an intellectually stimulating and international research environment, high-quality training to develop hard and soft skills, opportunities to participate in sampling campaigns and international scienti

PhD candidate @ HortiCell - Protoplast regeneration

Image
  PhD candidate @ HortiCell - Protoplast regeneration We are looking for an enthusiastic early career researcher or diploma student who is passionate about plants and with an interest in advancing agriculture in line with the sustainable development goals. You will isolate protoplasts from several major food crops and learn how to recognize the right stage and cellular type that has the capacity to start to divide and produce new plants. For this you use tissue culture technology and microscopy tools. You record with a good sense for detail how cells behave and what is required to identify and isolate the competent cells. Molecular tools and markers will be used to help with the selection and to understand what processes take place during protoplast regeneration. In a second face of the project, you will develop a new device and define conditions for protoplast regeneration. A parallel project involves a similar study using microspores instead of protoplasts. The job is challenging
