PhD position summary/title: PhD candidate in promoting sustainable consumption

There is increasing societal pressure for people to reduce their ecological footprints. There are many ways to do this. For example, people may eat less meat, buy less or from recycled or sustainable sources, or switch to sustainable modes of transportation. Although consumers report favorable attitudes toward pro-environmental behaviors, they do not always subsequently display sustainable actions, and there are often inconsistencies between different pro-environmental behaviors. This PhD position focuses on understanding inconsistencies in people’s sustainable consumption behaviors, with the aim of designing and testing real-life interventions that make a positive impact towards more consistent sustainable consumption behaviors. The empirical approach contains a mix of quantitative and qualitative studies as well as an intervention study in a more applied context.

PhD position summary/title: PhD positions in Experimental Quantum Physics

Project 1: Continuous atom laser

In this project you will build the first continuous atom laser. An atom laser is a beam of atoms that is described by a coherent matter wave. So far only short atom laser pulses have been created by outcoupling a beam of atoms from a Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC). The laser stops working when all atoms of the BEC have been outcoupled, requiring the creation of a new BEC for the next atom laser pulse. BEC creation is usually a lengthy process, requiring several cooling stages to be executed one after the other in time. We have built a machine that can execute these stages one after the other in space, enabling us to Bose-Einstein condense continuously [1]. This allows us to create a BEC that lasts as long as we want. It’s the atomic equivalent of an optical laser with perfectly reflective cavity mirrors. Your goal will be to take the next step and outcouple the first continuous atom laser beam from the BEC. Such a beam would be an ideal source for continuous atom interferometry [2]. A second goal of the project is to create interesting driven-dissipative quantum systems and study their properties.


Project 2: Sr optical clocks

In this project you will build and do research with one of the most precise optical clocks in the world. Your clock would go wrong by only one second over the lifetime of the universe and is capable of sensing the change in gravitational time dilation originating from a height change of less than one centimeter [5]. This project is very collaborative as it is not only a research project in itself, but also a crucial part of other research projects. As a start, you will learn the ropes from our superradiant clock team. You will be involved in every aspect of building your clock, from electronics, over lasers, optics, frequency combs, ultrastable resonators to vacuum chambers. Once the clock is operational you will use it to collaborate with other research teams, enabling our superradiant clock, precise qubit operations in our quantum computer (project 4), or studying fundamental physics with precision spectroscopy (with our colleagues at the Free University). For the latter you will participate in setting up a frequency link through telecom fibres to the Free University in Amsterdam and to the Eindhoven University of Technology. This project is part of the Quantum Delta NL Ultracold Quantum Sensing Testbed, which will give you many opportunities to work with industry, in particular to design photonic circuits for optical clocks.


Project 3: Quantum simulation and computing with Rydberg coupled single Sr atoms

Quantum computers and simulators can solve problems that are utterly out of reach for traditional computers. We are building two quantum computers/simulators based on arrays of strontium atoms held in optical tweezers [6], one in our lab and one at the Eindhoven University of Technology. Quantum bits are encoded in the internal states of these atoms and quantum calculations are carried out by shining laser beams onto the atoms in a well-orchestrated way. Quantum computers based on neutral atoms profit from the fact that the atoms are naturally identical and that it is quite easy to scale the computer to hundreds of quantum bits. Our quantum computer is based on strontium atoms, an alkaline-earth element that is also commonly used to build some of the best clocks in the world. Exploiting the clock built in project 3 and supported by QuantumDelta NL and the Quantum Software Consortium we are building quantum computers that can demonstrate algorithms developed by QuSoft or solve quantum chemistry problems. In Amsterdam we can currently trap strontium atoms in an array of 49 tweezers [7]. You will extend this machine with the lasers necessary to implement one- and two-qubit gates and perform quantum simulations and computations with it.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Candidate in Anthropology

The Department of Anthropology is looking for a PhD candidate who will participate in the NWA funded consortium “Re/Presenting Europe: Popular Representations of Diversity and Belonging.” The consortium aims to investigate how social scientists and humanity scholars working in close cooperation with Community Based Organization, schools and welfare organizations, organic intellectuals, and artists, produce more nuanced and truthful knowledge about the many “othered” or rather historically “blackened peoples” that have shaped Europe for centuries. In the project we seek to address the historical impact of the Dutch and European colonial past on these othered populations and create representations that build more inclusive futures. “Re/Presenting Europe” brings together sub-projects in education and research from postcolonial and globalising perspectives as well as urban arts, hip hop, and sports.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position on Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers

As part of the Sustainable Hydrogen Integrated Propulsion Drives (SH2IPDRIVE) consortium, the two PhD students working at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) will conduct research into various types of experimental hydrogen carriers in collaboration with a number of SME companies. This creates hydrogen storage solutions with a much greater volumetric energy density and potentially fewer safety risks than by using hydrogen at high pressure or low temperature. The prospects for hydrogen carriers are promising, but the technology is far from mature; the activities in this work package must therefore also be regarded as highly innovative in an international context. Specifically, the focus is on Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers (LOHCs); the most promising solution is worked out in detail and validated on a laboratory scale and in test setups.

(10) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position in Deep Learning – Artificial Intelligence for Protein Stabilization in Vaccine Design

To explain a bit, the efficacy of viral vaccines based on spike fusion proteins may depend on the conformation of the spike that is presented to the immune system. Those proteins tend to contain instable parts that might result in an undesired structure of the vaccine immunogen. In this project we want to exploit the recent progress in deep learning methods in combination with big protein data sets to learn to identify and stabilize occurring instable protein regions. Such a trained deep learning model could then quickly suggest vaccine designs that can then be tested in the lab and thus vastly speed up the whole vaccine development process. For this project we are looking for a PhD candidate who has experience with all the recent major methods in deep learning. The starting date is 1 December 2022 (not flexible). The PhD student will be affiliated with the AI4Science Lab embedded within the Amsterdam Machine Learning Lab (AMLab) of Prof. Max Welling. The research will mainly be carried out at the Informatics Institute of the University of Amsterdam and in collaboration with Janssen researchers.

Deadline : 16 October 2022
