In an era of rapid technological advancement, companies and their workforce need to adapt quickly. However, a significant gap exists in the workforce’s ability to harness these advancements effectively. The SMART4L project seeks to bridge this gap by enhancing the learning capacity of companies and increasing the employability of the workforce, in the context of logistics. Key questions within this project are: How can the workforce keep up with and contribute to adoption and application of new ICT technologies? And, how can organizations create conditions for stimulating and facilitating ICT learning and innovation? Learning communities are promising vehicles to facilitate inter-organizational learning and innovation. Within learning communities, different stakeholders (companies, knowledge-, educational-, and sector institutions) collaborate to learn, co-create, and adopt ICT-driven innovations. Digital platforms, such as the SMART4L platform, promise to be valuable tools to further accelerate this learning and innovation in collaborative learning communities. In this PhD project, we aim to uncover the social and psychological mechanisms that support learning and the creation, adoption and diffusion of ICT-driven innovations in logistics. Within this NWO-funded project we aim to answer this research question using a variety of research methods.

PhD position summary/title: PHD POSITION ENGAGING PATIENTS IN ATRIAL FIBRILLATION RESEARCH – ATHENA INSTITUTE (AMSTERDAM) IN COLLABORATION WITH AMSTERDAM UMC, VUMC AND THE NETHERLANDS HEART INSTITUTE (NLHI)

Since the 1990s, a call is made for a more active and prominent role for patients in health research in order to realise a transformation to a health system that is more responsive to patients’ needs. As a results, patients are increasingly seen as partners in health research, instead of passive recipients. The inclusion of patients in health decision-making has shown to stimulate more relevant and applicable outcomes, and to enhance its legitimacy. Despite this increased attention, there are still many questions about how to best engage patients and achieve the most valuable outcomes. More research is necessary to further boost the academic field of patient engagement, and simultaneously make societal impact. This PhD position aims to contribute to this enhanced patient engagement by conducting research within the context of the NWA project CIRCULAR. The overall aim of the project CIRCULAR is to stop AF by a holistic approach including co-creation with patients. We plan to realize this through the non-profit AFIP foundation. AFIP’s mission is to improve AF treatment by engaging patients in research approaches. The platform is built on the recognition that AF patients have ample ideas on complementary strategies to increase their quality of life. In the past years, AFIP has established a solid foundation, both in (academic) collaborations and research lines based on initial results of patient insights and in the technology and infrastructure to reach patients. In their search how to optimally  interpret and translate insights gained into research (and vice versa), they are eager to learn and experiment in this proposed research. The PhD student will study how engagement of patients whitin project CIRCULAR can be further improved. The PhD student will therefore not only study patient engagement, but also actively engage in experiments, such as citizen science, to further improve the practices of patient engagement.

PhD position summary/title: PHD POSITION THEOLOGY & RELIGIOUS STUDIES

Over the past century Western culture has experienced a spiritual nova-effect (Charles Taylor): once held together by a more or less uniform worldview, it has now become profoundly pluralistic in a process of diversification that is still ongoing. How should the academic study of religion and theology be restructured so as to do full justice to this pluralist turn? This PhD project aims at scrutinizing the various options on the table here both at an empirical level (involving action research in collaboration with relevant stakeholders) and at a theoretical level.

PhD position summary/title: PHD POSITION IN COMPUTATIONAL SINGLE-CELL CANCER BIOLOGY

 Anti-cancer drugs targeting signaling pathways often show great initial response, but resistance inevitably develops. One major reason for this is cell-state heterogeneity, where the response of a cell to a drug is influenced by the state the cell is in. In this project, we will use state-of-the-art single-cell multi-omics techniques (Radboud) and computational modelling (VU/NKI) to understand cellular responses to drugs over time, and develop strategies to rationally control cell behaviour to achieve better therapeutic efficacy. This is a collaborative project between the Vrije Universiteit (VU), the Netherlands Cancer Institute (NKI) in Amsterdam, and the Radboud University in Nijmegen. It is funded by the Dutch Cancer Society.

PhD position summary/title: PHD POSITION CONNECTING POLICY AND PRACTICE IN SUSTAINABILITY TRANSITIONS

Interlinked societal crises have sparked many local initiatives of people who seek to accelerate transitions in different societal domains towards a more sustainable future. These unfold currently without adequate connections to and alignment with policy efforts accelerate sustainability transitions. Combining the implementation of ‘top-down’ mission-oriented policy strategies with ‘bottom-up’ efforts at instigating social, technical and policy innovations (as well as ‘innovations’) is urgent. Linking up bottom-up and top-down dynamics is challenging, however, as there are large gaps between “policy” and “practice”. In addition to difficulties in bridging the gap between policy and practice, local initiatives often are confronted with limiting boundaries between institutionalised (policy) “sectors” (e.g., the “domain of” energy, agriculture, or health). Various policies in those demarcated policy domains hit the ground in one and the same place, and hence are entangled in practice. There is a need to focus on how place-based sustainability policies and initiatives operate across “domain” boundaries and play out in practice. Examples include care-farming, combining agricultural production and social care, and neighbourhood energy initiatives that combine a focus on energy justice with community engagement in the built environment. Such cross-sectoral initiatives deserve proper attention in scientific literature and policy making to accelerate sustainability transitions. This PhD positions offers the opportunity to study the dynamics between “policy” and “practice”, with a specific focus on unravelling the role of, and engaging with, local, cross-sectoral sustainability initiatives. We view such initiatives as “boundary experiments”, that facilitate collective rethinking and restructuring of various societal systems in transition, such as healthcare, energy, food, and urban mobility, while considering the unique social, ecological, and cultural aspects of each context.

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.
