Postdoc summary/title: Postdoc Position in Algorithmic Fairness in Dynamic Populations
We are interested in both advancing fundamental research and developing concrete applications. As examples, Artificial Intelligence has been applied to automatically detect fraud, support credit decisions and compute insurance risk metrics. In such contexts, anticipating potential harms and benefits of AI applications, while guaranteeing that their outcomes are accurate, fair and do not discriminate based on protected characteristics raises important scientific and implementation challenges. Machine learning algorithms can affect the behavior of agents within networked complex systems in ways often hard to foresee. In this domain, tools typically used in evolutionary biology, population dynamics and network science can be tailored to study individuals’ adaptation that strategically adapt over time.
Deadline : 12 January 2024
(03) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc Position in Mathematics
The project combines elements from graph theory, complex analysis and dynamical systems, and is motivated by problems in computational complexity and statistical physics regarding the location of zeros for graph polynomials. Examples of such graph polynomials include the partition function of the Potts model, the Ising model, the independence polynomial and the chromatic polynomial. Renormalization on recursively defined graphs induces iteration problems for rational maps in one or several complex variables.
The goal of the project is to develop similar techniques for families of graphs that are not necessarily recursively defined. In recent years it has become apparent that the link between complex analysis, and dynamical systems on the one side and graph theory on the other persists in this more general setting.

(06) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Post-doc Position on Emotions in Climate Change Conversations
Are you exceptionally interested in climate change communication or emotions research? Do you like to work in an inter-disciplinary team of communication scientists, social psychologists, and political scientists? Are you eager to employ mixed methods? And, do you want your office to be located in the vibrant city of Amsterdam? If the answer to all these questions is yes, then we are looking for you!
In this two-year project, we will investigate the role of emotions in climate change conversations. Emotions are theoretically conceptualized and empirically investigated in different ways across academic disciplines. Hence, we adopt an interdisciplinary approach to answer the question: “How do facial, verbal, physical, and experiential emotions in conversations about climate change shape the course of conversations and ultimately shift viewpoints on climate change interventions?”
Deadline : 29 February 2024
(07) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc ‘Multilingual Language Processing: Case studies in Belize and Benin’
We are looking for a talented and creative postdoctoral scholar with a PhD degree in Psychological Anthropology, Cognitive Science, Linguistics, Neuroscience, Psycholinguistics, Psychology, or another related discipline, who is fascinated by the study of language use in a multilingual community, and armed with sophisticated tools for data collection and statistical modelling to describe and analyse code-switching/code-mixing (CSCM) phenomena from an interdisciplinary perspective.
Our project’s aim is to yield an integrated approach to multilingual speech that is both descriptively and explanatorily adequate. Despite extensive research in this area, no clear explanation emerges about the regularities underlying mixed speech. While most existing studies focus on Western communities in which CSCM is socially disfavoured, this project investigates CSCM in multilingual communities, in Belize (Central America) and in Benin (West Africa), where multilingual discourse involving CSCM is the norm, and where speakers use various languages including Spanish (Belize) and French (Benin). We will use a multimethod, comparative approach, linking linguistic, cognitive (e.g., eye-tracking, pupillometry) and social factors to help us understand how multilinguals adapt to communicative and cognitive demands of contexts where CSCM is the norm.
Deadline : 31 januari 2024
(08) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

The Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) currently has a vacant Postdoc researcher position as part of the project ‘Unravelling our capacity for music’ (NWO-OC 406.20.CW.002), led by prof. Henkjan Honing. This research project aims to identify the constituent traits of our capacity for music by means of a series of listening experiments in the form of engaging memory-based games.
The ILLC is one of the five Research Schools within the Amsterdam Institute for Humanities Research (AIHR), and aims at bringing together insights from various fields concerned with information and information processing, such as computational linguistics, computer science, cognitive science, music, logic, mathematicians, and philosophy. It offers a friendly international research environment with world-class faculty in all of its areas of specialization, including music cognition and computational musicology. We are based in the beautiful city of Amsterdam, renowned for its historic system of canals, its laid-back cosmopolitan atmosphere, and its excellent connections to the rest of Europe and the world.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc Meat Culture: Popular Representations of Meat Consumption in the 19th and 20th Centuries
We are seeking a highly motivated and dynamic Postdoctoral Research Fellow to contribute to this exciting project. We invite those with a PhD in History, Literary Studies, Cultural Studies, or in other relevant fields to apply. The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will use a combination of historical and literary sources to analyse the development of narratives around meat intake and consumption, considering questions including, but not limited to: Why has meat occupied such a central place in collective narratives of healthy, tasty, luxurious food? What intersections of food science and food advertising during the 19th and 20th centuries produced narratives that are still key drivers to meat-based diets today? What place did these narratives have in cultural representations of “good” food? What counter-narratives came up? And how can we use these insights to help contribute to reduced meat consumption?
The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will develop these historical ‘meat narratives’ on the basis of a concrete 19th or 20th century case study (e.g. focusing on a specific city, nation, religious group, activist organisation etc). As part of the application procedure, please include in your Cover Letter a brief (10 lines max. will suffice) description of a concrete case study you would want to analyse and the sources available for study. We encourage applicants to make use of the collections of the University of Amsterdam library and Allard Pierson.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Researcher in AI for Sustainability
The University of Amsterdam (UvA) is recruiting a postdoctoral researcher in AI for sustainability. AI has a tremendous potential for accelerating the development of sustainable technologies. Realising this potential requires fundamental research to develop new AI methods for the design and modelling of physical systems as well as translational research to adapt inventions to practical use cases.
This work contributes to the European Lighthouse of AI for Sustainability (ELiAS), an EU-funded collaboration between 32 partners in both academia an industry. ELiAS will accelerate the development of AI-driven methods for computational design, data-driven simulations, as well as the development of neural networks for fast approximation of scientific computations (e.g., to accelerate climate simulations). ELiAS will also focus on devising new approaches for reducing the energy requirements of AI systems.
