PhD position summary/title: PhD position in Hydrogen and Antihydrogen Physics (1.0 FTE) (222600)
The prospective PhD researcher will assist in building an experiment to trap barium hydride molecular ions, and sympathetically cool them using laser cooled barium ions. The barium hydride ions will then be photodissociated to produce cold hydrogen. Further details on the scheme can be found here: https://doi.org/10.1088/1367-2630/ac4ef3. This is a new experiment being set up in Groningen, presenting an exciting opportunity to be involved from the very beginning. There may also be opportunities to travel to CERN to work on the ALPHA antihydrogen experiment (https://alpha.web.cern.ch/)

PhD position summary/title: PhD position in Security and Privacy of Conversational AI Systems (1.0 FTE) (222511)
The development of conversational AI technology has seen rapid progress in recent years, both chat-based (a.k.a. text-based) and voice-based, enabled by large pre-trained language models. The technology is highly successful in conversational agents that support a large number of services, such as Alexa and Siri. In particular, in the Dutch ecosystem, diverse economic stakeholders share an ambition to develop increased technological autonomy in the area of conversational AI.

PhD position summary/title: PhD position Regional to global Earth System Modelling (1.0 FTE) (222639)
In this PhD-project, the in-house Earth System Model (ESM) EC-Earth (www.ec-earth.org), a state-of-the-art global climate-carbon cycle model will be used to simulate climate (atmosphere, ocean, ice), vegetation, marine biochemistry, ocean primary production, phytoplankton composition, and nutrient distributions. Specifically, the ESM will be improved so as to minimize biases with the regional-scale model. The improved model will then, in the context of the multi-model CMIP6, be applied to make future projections/scenarios of the coupled marine climate-phytoplankton system in the NoSE-North Atlantic region and identify/quantify biochemical feedbacks governing these changes. Using the ESM, the impacts of the NoSE region on the global carbon cycle and ocean carbon storage will be assessed (dissolved CO2 storage and the biological pump), and intermodel differences in order to link these to mechanisms that govern the response quantified. In this way, future carbon cycle changes in the NoSE region in relation to North-Atlantic and global response including uncertainties can be inferred. EC-Earth in the standard resolution is part of CMIP6 (Climate Model Intercomparison Project phase 6); model output from the multi-model ensemble of CMIP6 will be used to assess intermodel uncertainty by comparing EC-Earth results with other models in terms of biases, variability and future projections. In this interdisciplinary project you will work closely together with two postdocs (NIOZ, Texel/Yerseke) who will simulate local and regional processes, as well as with several other PhD candidates and postdocs working on field observations and interpretation.

(06) PhD Degree – Fully Funded
PhD position summary/title: PhD position Smart Hysteretic Piezoelectric Actuators – Control and Modelling (222633)
Piezoelectric actuators have been used extensively in high-tech systems due to their particular material properties allowing them to be deployed for high-precision engineering systems. Piezoelectric actuators are widely used in a broad range of application areas such as biomedical, aerospace, energy harvesting, etc. In most applications that use standard PZT material, a constant electric field is applied to the piezoelectric actuators in order to reach the desired displacement/material deformation. This actuation principle has introduced design challenges when a high-density and high-precision actuation array are required, such as, in high-precision deformable surface applications. The aim of this project is to investigate the multi-domain dynamical modelling and control of high-density Hysteretic Piezoelectric Actuators (HPA) systems in the ASML edge roll-off compensation table. The research will be done in close collaboration with ASML and Physik Instrumente. The successful candidate will work in a multidisciplinary research environment where engineering and materials science are to be combined to improve the development of highly efficient and reliable piezoelectric systems.
Deadline : 24 October 2022

Piezoelectric actuators are widely used in a broad range of application areas such as biomedical, aerospace, energy harvesting, etc. In most applications that use standard PZT material, a constant electric field is applied to the piezoelectric actuators in order to reach the desired displacement/material deformation. This actuation principle has introduced design challenges when a high-density and high-precision actuation array are required, such as, in high-precision deformable surface applications. The aim of this project is the synthesis of highly hysteretic piezoelectric materials and their implementation into the fabrication of set and forget wafer table to compensate quasi-static edge roll-off error. The research will be done in close collaboration with ASML, Physik Instrumente and the Zernike Institute of Advanced Materials. The successful candidate will work in a multidisciplinary research environment where engineering and materials science are to be combined to improve the development of highly efficient and reliable piezoelectric systems.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Precipitates in nanosteels studied by transmission electron microscopy (222595)
Precipitation strengthening is a powerful metallurgical tool to gain strength in nanosteels for future automotive applications. This project aims to unravel the fundamentals of nanoscale precipitation strengthening to create precipitate structures with optimal properties. In this project transmission electron microscopy (TEM) based techniques will be employed. TEM is excellently suited to probe nanoscale and atomic structures of precipitates, also including their size and spatial distributions. The experiments will be performed using state-of-the art electron microscopy facilities of the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials of the University of Groningen, e.g. also including a double aberration corrected and monochromated (scanning) TEM that can operate between 30 and 300 kV. The project will be conducted in close collaboration with research groups of TU Delft focussing on modelling (where a postdoc position is available) and small angle neutron scattering (where a PhD position is available) and with industry.

PhD position summary/title: PhD position Psychological and legal aspects of energy communities (1.0 FTE) (222606)
Within an interdisciplinary project between psychology and law, we are seeking for a PhD candidate that researches the synergies between psychology insights into how people want to interact with decision-making and laws on public participation in the context of energy communities. In the transition towards carbon-free societies in the European Union (EU), new forms of cooperations of various local stakeholders are emerging often described as ‘energy communities’ which can be characterised by bottom-up governance structures and goals serving the wider welfare of the community. Energy communities are widely seen as a potentially successful tool to involve people more in decision-making and thereby increase public support for the energy transition.
