PhD position summary/title: PHD POSITION ON PHAGE ECOLOGY IN MICROBIAL COMMUNITIES
Microbial communities are essential to the functioning of ecosystems, from the oceans to the human gut. Within these communities, phages infect vast numbers of bacteria every day and outnumber bacteria about 10 to 1. Currently, we lack a quantitative understanding for how phages impact community composition and function, and conversely, how a complex community context shapes the action of phages on their specific hosts. In this PhD project, you will study marine bacteria and their phages in isolation and in communities, from simple synthetic communities to enrichments of natural communities. Combining high-throughput characterization methods and state-of-the-art bioreactor technology with metagenomic sequencing and mathematical modelling, your research will lead to a quantitative understanding of the effects of phages on microbial communities and the ecosystem functions they provide. Beyond a better understanding of phage-bacteria interactions in marine microbial communities, this project will also yield insights and methods that will be applicable to other environments such as soils and industrially relevant communities (wastewater treatment, food microbiology), as well as for phage therapy to treat antibiotic resistant bacterial infections.

PhD position summary/title: PHD POSITION ENVIRONMENTAL ECONOMICS
The Institute for Environmental Studies (IVM) has a new full-time four-year position for a doctoral (PhD) candidate in the field of environmental economics. You will become part of a new 4-year interdisciplinary research project funded by IVM that aims to study the potential of voluntary carbon offsets to mitigate individual dietary emissions, and the different ways to increase people’s willingness to pay for them. While voluntary carbon offsets have been studied extensively in the context of flying behaviours, little is known about their potential of influencing other individual behaviours like diets. Further, amidst growing concerns about their additional effects, there is sparse literature on citizens’ ability to assess such offsetting schemes and their willingness to pay for them. The PhD researcher will investigate and study the following research questions:

PhD position summary/title: PhD position Resilience gains of nature-inspired water systems.
This position is part of the RESHAPE project, a new 5-year NWO-funded interdisciplinary research program that aims to develop change-pathways to increase the resilience of Dutch sand landscapes in face of ongoing climate change. The water system of sand landscapes goes far beyond the visible ditches and rivers. It is especially the invisible water flows through subsurface and plants that we can improve. Moreover, in a resilient sand landscape, the spatial networks of water, economy, society and governance are strongly intertwined. Within RESHAPE we study how to stimulate these spatial dependencies to catalyze a change towards a future-proof sand landscape. As part of RESHAPE you will (i) study a gradient of landscapes using a global dataset from which we will derive nature-inspired landscape design principles at river- basin scale, (ii) use hydrological models to analyze and quantify resilience gains and trade-offs of these nature-inspired landscapes, and (iii) identify the most effective hydrological strategies to improve resilience of Dutch sand landscapes.
Deadline : 17/09/2023.

PhD position summary/title: PHD POSITION: DESIGNING AND ASSESSING INCENTIVES FOR RESILIENT DUTCH LANDSCAPES
The Institute for Environmental Studies (IVM) has a new full-time four-year position for a doctoral (PhD) researcher in the field of environmental economics. You will become part of a new 4-year interdisciplinary research programme (RESHAPE) funded by NWO that aims to develop change-pathways to increase the resilience of Dutch sand landscapes in face of ongoing climate change. Droughts, floods, biodiversity loss and deteriorating water quality put increasing pressure on water actors and lead to a loss of societal value. In a resilient landscape, the spatial networks of water, economy, society and governance are strongly intertwined and support one another. Within RESHAPE we study how to stimulate these spatial dependencies, which can catalyse a change towards a future-proof landscape, and aim to develop economic instruments that enable key actors to make resilient, climate-proof choices.

PhD position summary/title: PHD IN ATTRIBUTING PROCESS ERRORS IN AEROSOL MODELS
Aerosol (and their impacts on clouds) are the largest source of uncertainty in climate forcing. To estimate climate forcing, we use models but these are not perfect. You will work with novel attribution techniques: identifying (and correcting) processes in aerosol models that are responsible for large disagreements with observations. You will work with large datasets of innovative satellite retrievals. You will develop original ways to integrate these satellite observations with in-situ measurements. The ultimate goal is to improve aerosol models and their predictions. This job requires a resourceful, creative thinker who likes to take initiative.

PhD position summary/title: PHD SELECTIVE CO2 PHOTOREDUCTION ON PLASMONIC NANOPARTICLES
Nanoparticles of noble metals absorb and scatter visible light thanks so-called plasmon resonances, light-driven oscillations of their free charge carriers. The energy and spectral shape of these resonances strongly depend on the nanoparticle’s size, shape, composition, and surrounding. Plasmon resonances are used to activate a wide range of chemical and physical phenomena . Recently, light irradiation of silver nanoparticles has been used to convert CO2 into a wide range of products inaccessible by conventional thermal processes in the dark [2-4]. The conversion of CO2 to added-value products is a key reaction in the mitigation of climate change and the development of a sustainable chemical industry. To make proper use of plasmonic catalysts, however, it is imperative to understand their mechanism of operation. The aim of this PhD project is to explore how varying the geometry, surface properties, chemical environment, and irradiation profile of plasmonic nanoparticles affects their photocatalytic performance. Ultimately, we want to move towards selective plasmonic CO2 reduction into desired products.

About The Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam
The Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (abbreviated as VU or VU Amsterdam) is a university in Amsterdam, Netherlands, founded in 1880, and ranked among the world’s top 150 universities by four major ranking tables. The VU is one of two large, publicly funded research universities in the city, the other being the University of Amsterdam (UvA). The literal translation of the Dutch name Vrije Universiteit is “Free University”. “Free” refers to independence of the university from both the State and the Dutch Reformed Church. Both within and outside the university, the institution is commonly referred to as “the VU”. Although founded as a private institution, the VU has received government funding on a parity basis with public universities since 1970. The university is located on a compact urban campus in the southern Buitenveldert neighbourhood of Amsterdam and adjacent to the modern Zuidas business district.
In 2014, the VU had 23,656 registered students, most of whom were full-time students. That year, the university had 2,263 faculty members and researchers, and 1,410 administrative, clerical and technical employees, based on FTE units. The university’s annual endowment for 2014 was circa €480 million. About three quarters of this endowment is government funding; the remainder is made up of tuition fees, research grants, and private funding.
The official university seal is entitled The Virgin in the Garden. Personally chosen by Abraham Kuyper, the Reformed-Protestant leader and founder of the university, it depicts a virgin living in freedom in a garden while pointing towards God, referring to the Protestant Reformation in the Netherlands in the 16th and 17th century. In 1990, the university adopted the mythical griffin as its common emblem.
