Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc in techno-economic analysis of CO2 capture and conversion technologies
We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher that contributes to early-stage screening of negative emissions technologies and concepts, e.g., by techno-economic analyses. The technologies being developed at CORC are at a very early stage, so the aim is:
to derive elemental relations between laboratory-based properties of technologies and future implications in terms of cost and energy and materials consumption,
to assess the potential of these technologies to achieve a Gigaton-scale,
to identify barriers in terms of energy and material consumptions, environmental impacts, fundamental limits for efficiency, etc. that prevent their scalability.
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: 2-year postdoc position for studying pollinator decline using genomics and environmental DNA
We are currently witnessing a decline in species richness and abundance for certain insect groups, of which pollinators is a key example. However, the magnitude, timing and potential drivers of the decline is debated. We are now seeking a highly motivated postdoc to play a leading role in a project exploring these uncertainties through new molecular methods and sample types. The project will investigate: i) population size history of selected insect/pollinator species using genome-wide SNP data from modern samples; ii) historical change in resource use for declining pollinators using metabarcoding of pollen from museum and modern specimens as well as historical plant maps; and iii) variation in current pollinator networks using eDNA metabarcoding of flower samples and pollen along gradients in floral composition and habitat disturbance.
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc in network-inspired models of heterogeneous materials
Most solid materials are heterogeneous at the µm scale. The heterogeneity can stem from the subdivision into domains, e.g. crystals in polycrystalline metals, as well as from the presence of secondary phase particles and porosities. This second type of heterogeneity is critical, because it dramatically affects the material mechanical properties. The effect can be either beneficial and purposely pursued, like in particle-reinforced composites and porous orthopedic implants, or heavily detrimental and cause for unpredicted failures, like undesired porosity in 3D printed metal parts. Theoretical tools exist to predict these effects, but they are highly computationally demanding as they involve the numerical solution of nonlinear differential equations.
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Two or more Senior Researcher positions at the Danish Centre for Studies in Research and Research Policy
The position as Senior Researcher is a tenured academic research position. Senior researchers are expected to contribute to all activities at the Centre. This can include contribution to research projects (data collection, analysis, writing), application for funding, public consultancy work, research management, teaching and supervision.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral position as part of the research project “BODY POLITIC(S): Bodies and matter in political thought 1500-1800”
BODY POLITIC(S) researches the historical foundations of the nexus of bodies and state, and the importance of material considerations for abstract political thinking from the birth of the modern state to the birth of modernity (1500-1800). The project studies the entanglement of the body with the emergence of the modern state, that is, with ideas and practices of the political in early modern Europe. It examines the historical relationship of abstract ideas (the state, liberty, laws) to concrete matter (flesh, sex, birth, death) in politics. The project tracks continuities, ruptures and change, and the entanglement of the local with the global. We will investigate how early modern people made sense of the relationship of the individuals’ needs, concerns, and bodies to the state. We are particularly interested in in understanding the early modern relationship of the local to the global and of the national to the international through material and bodily considerations. In addition, the project aims to widen what is considered the “source corpus” in the history of ideas and wants to engage with “great thinkers” as well as medicinal treatises and travel literature or “lower” literature and aims to enrich the field with a global and a gender perspective. The aim is to reach a better understanding ofthe material and bodily foundations of early modern political thinking and to better perceive the history and foundations of the modern state. The project is funded as an AUFF Starting Grant. Principal Investigator is Professor MSO Anna Becker.
