PhD position summary/title: PhD positions in the area of galaxy formation and evolution (5.0 FTE) (V23.0678)

Gas accretion into galaxies is the engine of galaxy formation and evolution as it provides new material for the process of star formation. However, despite decades of research, we still do not know how it actually takes place. In this project we will study the cool gas in the circum-galactic medium (CGM) of galaxies, seen via absorption-line observations towards background QSOs, with the aim of detecting gas accretion. The main goal will be to quantify the inflow rates at different locations in the CGM. The main novelty with respect to previous work is the use of a new methodology that combines ultra-high-resolution magnetohydrodynamical simulations with global CGM-scale models. The PhD candidate is expected to run such simulations, for which we will have a dedicated computer cluster, and develop the global model. Once the technique is available we will apply it to large samples of galaxies to determine gas accretion properties across cosmic time.

(03) PhD Degree – Fully Funded 

PhD position summary/title: PhDs Porous Organic Solids for High-Density Energy Storage in Redox Flow Batteries (V23.0671)

We are looking for two PhD candidates for a joint project between the groups of Prof. Ben Feringa and Prof. Edwin Otten, within the framework of the Advanced Research Center Chemical Building Blocks Consortium (ARC-CBBC). The goal of this project is to explore novel promising classes of organic active materials for batteries that feature (multiple) highly robust and electrochemically switchable redox units. Redox-active organics incorporated into porous framework materials will be investigated as solid capacity boosters in lab-scale flow batteries. The increased share of intermittent renewable generation in the energy mix presents significant challenges for grid stability. This necessitates deployment of large-scale energy storage to balance supply/demand. Batteries are expected to play a prominent role in this, but advances in technology are required to provide affordable and safe energy storage at scale. Redox flow batteries (RFBs) are a promising technology with the capability to provide long-duration storage (8+ hours), but the currently used vanadium electrolyte chemistry is expensive and is subject to environmental and geopolitical concerns. The objective of this project is to deliver cost-effective, high energy-dense storage materials for RFBs, which have the potential to play a significant role in the energy transition.

(04) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD (De)Polarizing discourse by targeting trigger points for polarization (V23.0683)

Western countries are increasingly dealing with societal polarization, with historically low levels of trust in governments or those holding different opinions. To explain this, theories in political and psychological science often focus on macro-level events (e.g., highly publicized incidents, biases in partisan media), stable cultural factors (e.g., cultural values, ideological incompatibilities) or micro-level individual psychology (negative emotions, stereotypes). However, these theories have difficulty explaining current trends in polarization rising from the bottom-up. To bridge this gap, this project focuses on the meso-level of conversations as a catalyzer of polarization. Taking a bottom-up approach, we focus on how polarization emerges in small-scale interactions in participative democracy groups, using conversation analysis as a method for identifying trigger points. The impact of those trigger points are subsequently validated in laboratory experiments. Integrating insights from the political, social psychological, and communication studies, the current project aims to identify micro-conversational trigger points in small group conversations that fuel polarization. Specifically, we propose (1) that polarization can be fueled by triggers in the form and content of everyday conversations, (2) identifying triggers for polarization in conversation can inform the development of interventions that contribute to a healthier democratic debate.

Ana Guerberof Arenas. The new machine translation paradigms have drastically changed society’s perception of technology and the act of translation. The recent advances in large language models and generative AI has highlighted the need to understand how the creative mind works when translating and the differences experienced when working with technology. INCREC aims to understand the creative process of translation of literary and audiovisual content and its reception by users with various techniques to enhance MT use, thus improving the translator’s working environment and job sustainability, as well as the user experience. To better understand this complex process, INCREC triangulates data from eye-tracking, retrospective think-aloud interviews, translated material, diaries and questionnaires from professional translators and users. The project will hire three PhD students, who will work together with the PI, a postdoc and a research assistant. Each will also focus on one work package dealing with 1) literary translation, 2) audiovisual translation 3) literary content reception the postdoc will deal with audiovisual reception. The PhDs will work principally in the Netherlands (Groningen) but will spend some time in another country for field work. The INCREC project counts with the support of the commercial sector through AppTek, a MT provider, and OOONA, a toolkit provider for subtitling.
