Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Post-doc on Cooperative Housing, Degrowth and Circular Living (3 years)
We are looking for post-doctoral researcher (for 3 years) able to conceptualise and empirically investigate the relation between cooperative forms of housing, urban degrowth and ‘circular living’, a mode of living that reduces and reuses waste. In particular, the postdoc should develop a theoretical and conceptual framework able to connect theories of commoning, degrowth and circular economy. The researcher will carry out empirical case studies, from The Netherlands and from abroad, looking at how different modes of cooperative and collaborative housing influence material usage in the built environment. The material, architectural and design aspects of housing will be connected to the social, institutional aspects of the communities organizing those housing projects. As post-doc you will be working as part of an international project consortium that includes university of Gothenburg, University of Barcelona, Balmes University foundation, University of Nantes, and Chalmers University. Moreover, the consortium includes partners from practice in each of these cities (architects, governments, grassroots organizations etc.). In Amsterdam, the postdoc research will be developed in cooperation with grassroots organisation and one architectural studio specialised in housing cooperatives and housing justice.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc on Political Trust and Political Skepticism
The Department of Political Science of the University of Amsterdam is looking for a postdoctoral researcher, to work on political trust and skepticism in the ERC-project CRITICALTRUST led by prof. dr. Tom van der Meer. CRITICALTRUST aims to approach political trust as a two-dimensional concept. Its core premise is that trust scholars should not only distinguish between high versus low trust, but concurrently also between (dis)trust as an evaluation versus (dis)trust as a disposition. This two-dimensional interpretation has important consequences for our understanding of the operationalization, measurement, causes, and consequences of political trust. For that purpose, CRITICALTRUST will consist of a team of PhD-candidates and postdocs, embedded in a research group with expertise on political trust. This particular postdoc project has two main aims. First, it will unpack the one-dimensional understanding of political trust conceptually and theoretically. Ultimately, it aims to provide a conceptual and theoretical map of political trust and its related attitudes. Second, this project will convert this two-dimensional conceptual map into a set of survey measures to separate dispositional (dis)trust from evaluative (dis)trust. The postdoc will run elaborate pre-tests of the newly developed measures to assess how respondents interpret them, qualitatively and quantitatively, with attention to theoretical validity and cross-national equivalence.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Researcher Root Metabolomics of the Plant-parasitic Plant Interaction
The mission of the Plant Hormone Biology group of the Swammerdam Institute for Life Sciences is to understand the chemical communication of plants with other organisms in their environment. With an international and diverse team of post-docs, PhDs and technicians with expertise varying from analytical chemistry to biochemistry to molecular biology we study how plants produce and secrete signaling molecules, particularly belowground, and how this affects the behavior of other organisms in the rhizosphere. This includes communication with nematodes and parasitic plants, and with microbial communities that have been shown to play a crucial role in the protection of plants against a range of stresses. Our research is aimed at understanding the biological relevance of this chemical communication and use it as a basis for improving resistance and harnessing the potential of beneficial root microbes resulting in improved stress resilience in crops for sustainable food production with reduced inputs.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc – Misinformation and Organizations
Do you have an interest in the topic of mis- and disinformation? Are you curious how both governmental and private organizations navigated an information environment challenged by mis- and disinformation? Are you a passionate researcher and do you like to initiate new research projects? Then we are looking for you! In the current media system, effectively dealing with mis- and disinformation is a big challenge for many organizations. This is particularly the case for organizations whose operations touch upon contested societal issues. We see that such societal engagement is no longer restricted to public organizations, since private corporations increasingly speak out and get involved with socio-political issues. At the same time, the concepts of mis- and disinformation are also contested, because organizations may define and understand these terms in different ways. In the current one-year postdoc project, you investigate how organizations conceptualize the concepts of mis- and disinformation, which strategies organizations currently use to combat the impact of mis- and disinformation, and empirically test the effectiveness of (some of) these strategies. This postdoc project will be supervised by prof. dr. Christian Burgers and dr. Toni van der Meer.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Researcher in Plant-Thrips-Virus Interactions
Our research is done by a multidisciplinary team of international researchers, PhD candidates and technicians with expertise in analytical chemistry, biochemistry and molecular biology. We often collaborate with other departments in the institute and with external partners, such as other universities and the (plant-breeding) industry. We study how insects deploy proteinaceous effectors to modulate plant defenses. Understanding the mechanism of such effectors and identification of the plant proteins with which they interact is important for developing more resistant plants, in collaboration with the plant-breeding industry. Are you a skilled researcher in Plant Biology and intrigued by how pest insects, such as thrips, modulate plant defenses? And how their pathogens, such as microsporidia, and the plant viruses that they vector manipulate their insect hosts? We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher for an ambitious project studying the effectorome of thrips and the in-planta interactome. This project is part of a larger consortium at the UvA, thus requiring team spirit and collaborative skills. You will be embedded in an interdisciplinary team with three other researchers who aim to provide breeding solutions for devastating plant diseases by studying the underpinning mechanisms at the molecular level, using state-of-the-art technologies.
