Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc Position in Infrared Diffusion-Ordered Spectroscopy
We have developed a device to simultaneously characterize molecular structure and size by combining microfluidic technology with infrared spectroscopy (both conventional and nonlinear). This device produces two- and three-dimensional spectra, in which the different species present in a solution are separated based on their infrared frequencies and their size: InfraRed Diffusion-Ordered SpectroscopY (IRDOSY). We have already carried out proof-of-concept experiments and built a functional model of the device, see https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/anie.202213424

(06) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc “EU AI Diplomacy Towards China”
This post doc project investigates the interaction between the EU and China as a leading power in global (digital) politics and AI development (see subproject III). In EU policy discourse, China is frequently held up as a negative example of government abuse of AI for oppressive aims. And in the current geopolitical climate, China is increasingly portrayed as the primary competitor of an American-European alliance. At the same time, global standards agreement in the AI field will also require Chinese buy-in. Equally, bilateral trade in AI-powered devices will require some level of shared standards or regulatory agreements. The goal of the project is to understand how the EU interacts with China in the field of AI standard setting, and why so. Based on that, it assesses alternative future scenarios for such engagement and their relative merits and ancillary effects.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Researcher in Human Rights Law/International (Criminal) Law (Project Rethinking SLIC*)
Rethinking SLIC* is a NWO-funded research project led by Professor Göran Sluiter. For more information see rethinkingslic.org The aim of the project is to assess whether the existing laws and practices on secondary liability are adequate in light of the generally recognized importance to end and prevent serious human rights violations. The project started in September 2018 and will run for a total period of 6 years, until September 2024.The Rethinking SLIC* research group consists at present of a Principal Investigator, three PhD candidates, two student-assistants and an Expert Group on Secondary Liability for International Crimes. The PhD projects are analyzing the current state of secondary liability in cases of serious human rights violations in civil law, criminal law and state responsibility. Based on a uniform methodology, thorough research, and comprehensive evaluation, the Expert Group produce a set of principles of secondary liability. The Expert Group currently consists of around 40 international academics and practitioners, divided into five working groups: Theoretical foundations of secondary liability; Human rights law and secondary liability; Secondary liability and actus reus; Secondary liability and mens rea; Secondary liability and due diligence.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Position in General-relativistic Magneto-hydrodynamics of Compact Objects
The goal of this project/position is to develop and implement a beyond-ideal GRMHD numerical simulation framework that incorporates viscous and resistive MHD effects for binary neutron-star merger and supernova simulations. This framework will allow us to include different sources of viscosity and resistivity in the simulations and probe their observational signatures in the gravitational waves and kilonova/supernova lightcurves. We will start by implementing a viscous GRMHD extension of our well-established Einstein Toolkit GRMHD solver GRHydro following already established formulations. In a second step we will work closely with nuclear and quantum physicists to include detailed viscous and nuclear effects in these simulations. We will use the outputs from these simulations to predict the ejecta amount and composition and gravitational wave signatures of these events and to assess the detectability of these signatures in current GW+EM observational data.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc Position in Stochastic Analysis
The Korteweg-de Vries Institute for Mathematics is offering a 2 year postdoc position in stochastic analysis in the Applied Probability Research group, on the NWO VIDI project “Numerical analysis for stochastic differential equations in Riemannian manifolds”. The goal of this project is to develop and analyse numerical schemes for SDEs in Riemannian manifolds. Simulations of SDEs in Riemannian manifolds are used in statistics for analysing geometrically constrained data. Simulations are also used in cell biology, data visualisation, and image recognition. This project however is of a more theoretical nature: our goal is to develop suitable approximation schemes and analyse their convergence rates. The post-doc may also set up/maintain her/his own line of research, provided it has connections this project.
