PhD position summary/title: PhD Student

We are seeking a dedicated PhD candidate on advanced material modelling in the textile domain. In this project you will dive deep into a cutting-edge research area, exploring the complexities of advanced textile material modelling. You will collaborate closely within a research team comprising 3 PhDs and 1 postdoc all working on this project. The research project focusses on the development of a robust multi-scale textile modelling framework, utilizing finite element analysis combined with virtual fibre modelling. Simulations encompass both the manufacturing side (e.g. weaving, stitching, bobbin unwinding, etc.) as well as the performance side (e.g. strength prediction of specialized technical fabric connections). Such simulations are very challenging due to the use of diverse materials (natural and synthetic fibers, yarns and fabrics) combined with high anisotropy and non-linearity. Furthermore, the dynamics of high-speed manufacturing processes need to be included in the modelling framework, ensuring its applicability to real-world processes. This is still a very new research topic and many scientific questions remain unanswered.

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral fellow

The History Department at Ghent University is recruiting 3 doctoral fellows for the ERC Starting Grant Project ‘CATTLEFRONTIERS – (Post)Colonial Cattle Frontiers: Capitalism, Science and Empire in Southern and Central Africa, 1890s-1970s’ (2023-2028), under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Samuël Coghe. CATTLEFRONTIERS explores how colonialism, global capitalism and science transformed cattle production in Southern and Central Africa during the colonial and early postcolonial period. From the 1890s to 1970s, (post)colonial governments, scientists, entrepreneurs and settlers promoted a broad range of interventions to overcome the allegedly uneconomic attitudes of African pastoralists and turn cattle into profitable commodities. Adopted, adapted, contested or eluded by African cattle herders and owners, these interventions transformed pre-existing cattle economies, pastoralist societies, rural ecologies and animal populations in many and often unexpected ways.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Student

The Laboratory of Protistology and Aquatic Ecology (Ghent University) and Comparative Network Biology group (VIB) invite applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship for 4 years to study life cycle dynamics in coastal diatom populations. Diatoms are major primary producers in freshwater and marine ecosystems but little remains known about the role of endogenous and external factors triggering life cycle transitions, and in particular how global change affects the growth and life cycling of diatom populations. Recent pioneering work in our lab has revealed the genes involved in life cycle transitions (sexual reproduction, resting spore formation, dormancy,…), suggesting a high degree of conservation in several of them. This makes it possible to monitor the expression of these genes to track the growth and life cycle dynamics of multiple species simultaneously. This PhD will take a (meta)transcriptomics approach to track life cycle events of dominant diatoms species in benthic and planktonic coastal ecosystems along the East-Atlantic coasts and link these to the dynamics of population-level cell size structure and local environmental conditions. In parallel, laboratory bulk- and single cell RNA-seq experiments will be set-up to identify and validate environmental factors triggering life cycle events. The successful candidate will participate in field work, laboratory essays, the analysis of metatranscriptome data and the design and testing of molecular probes to track life cycle events in natural conditions.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Student

The Horizon Europe research project DuneFront (4 years) will demonstrate blue-grey coastal and marine infrastructure as a new generation of sustainable, inclusive, and aesthetics solution to ensure coastal safety under climate change. The project has the ambition to co-create hybrid Dune-Dike Nature Based Solutions (DD-hybrid NbS) that can efficiently integrate static hard infrastructure with adaptive, dynamic aeolian and vegetated sediments. Mainstreaming biodiversity into marine and coastal DD-hybrid NbS is essential to jointly safeguard human assets, blue economy activities and biodiversity gain and restoration. DuneFront will achieve this challenge by identifying key biological, physical, and socio-economic boundary conditions, and by translating evidence on biodiversity, morphodynamics and safety from 12 Demonstrators along vulnerable European coasts into new roadmaps for DD-hybrid NbS design and installation. The integration of this multidisciplinary knowledge into physical and digital twins will pilot the development of a Decision-Support-System, coastal and marine infrastructure Blueprints, and the installation of new prototypes along one of the most recreated coasts. The DuneFront consortium brings together 16 partners (10 universities, 3 research organisations, 2 large enterprises and a government agency) from 6 different European countries in a co-creation scenario. The project is coordinated by the Terrestrial Ecology (Fac. Sciences) and Coastal Engineering (Fac. Engineering and Architecture) research groups from Ghent University (UGent). Besides a coordinating role, the Coastal Engineering research group from UGent will contribute to the quantification of storm hydrodynamic boundary conditions, stability and resilience of hybrid Dune-Dike Nature Based Solutions along European coasts, and to design blueprints for Nbs.

(17) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD Student

Our research group currently is involved in research projects in the energy domain, including mostly smart grid applications. The focus of our AI4E team in these projects is on data analytics, as well as coordination algorithms for, e.g., demand response. A major objective of the applications we want to support is to accommodate large penetration of renewable sources (wind mills, solar panels, etc.) without requiring excessive investments in the power grid infrastructure. This involves characterizing and eventually predicting both power generation (from renewables) and consumption behavior (and its flexibility, e.g., what portion thereof can be shifted in time), using data analytics techniques, constructing generative models, applying machine learning, etc. The next step is to actively control power consumption, e.g., by developing algorithms for energy management systems (to steer power consumption and/or decide what to use local production for, e.g., push into the grid or local storage).

PhD position summary/title: PhD Student

Estuaries are complex and highly dynamic systems significantly modifying the riverine nutrient and carbon fluxes to the sea through various physical and biogeochemical processes. In particular, the tidal freshwater zone (TFZ) is an often overlooked part of this aquatic continuum from rivers to the sea. Plankton composition and dynamics in the TFZ is influenced not only by abiotic factors such as nutrients and light availability but also strongly by hydrodynamics, affecting both abiotic conditions as well as food web structure. This PhD project will investigate the functional diversity and activity of microbial plankton in the Scheldt tidal freshwater zone, a unique system which has been studied for decades in a multidisciplinary effort to understand and predict the estuary’s response to environmental change. Analysis of long-term monitoring data of phytoplankton has revealed the role of de-eutrophication, altered hydrodynamics and in particular extreme weather events as main drivers of community change in this system.

About Ghent University, Belgium  –Official Website

Ghent University is a public research university located in Ghent, Belgium. It was established in 1817 by King William I of the Netherlands. After the Belgian revolution of 1830, the newly formed Belgian state began to administer the university. In 1930, the university became the first Dutch-speaking university in Belgium, whereas French had previously been the standard academic language in what was Université de Gand. In 1991, it was granted major autonomy and changed its name accordingly from State University of Ghent (Dutch: Rijksuniversiteit Gent, abbreviated as RUG) to its current designation.

In contrast to the Catholic University of Leuven or the Free University of Brussels, UGent considers itself a pluralist university in a special sense, i.e. not connected to any particular religion or political ideology. Its motto Inter Utrumque (‘In Between Both Extremes’), on the coat of arms, suggests the acquisition of wisdom and science comes only in an atmosphere of peace, when the institution is fully supported by the monarchy and fatherland.

Ghent University is one of the biggest Flemish universities, consisting of 44,000 students and 9,000 staff members. The University also supports the University Library and the University Hospital, which is one of the largest hospitals in Belgium. It is one of the greatest beneficiaries of funding from the Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO). Ghent University consistently rates among the top 100 universities in the world.
