(02) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc summary/title: Postdoctoral fellowship on modelling crop water and nitrogen dynamics under drought and varied nitrogen levels

Crop growth and yield is determined by a range of meteorological and soil variables and how these interact temporally. Among those, water and nitrogen (N) are often the key determinants of growth, their availability to plants is influenced by irrigation and N-fertilization management. In addition, the response of crop to soil water and N status is modified by interaction with climatic conditions, i.e., air temperature and humidity. Exploring the effects of these abiotic factors on crop and unravelling their dependencies requires concurrently monitoring soil/plant water status and plant physiological responses and growth/yield performance. This knowledge is essential for optimizing irrigation and N-fertilization management in sustainable crop production, supporting the green transition in agriculture.

We are looking for a postdoc candidate with background in crop ecophysiology, soil science and plant nutrition, and plant phenomics. Relevant experience includes characterization and modelling of plant water relations, leaf gas exchange, N uptake and partitioning, N-use efficiency and water-use efficiency.

(05) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc positions in Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) and applied Machine Learning (ML) for workflow tracking in hospital settings

Based on unique access to large datasets of care workflows in hospitals and a team of strong industrial and societal partners including Hospitals, The Danish Patient Society, PowerNet and Systematic, iAware will develop a novel approach to tracking workflows with the aim of supporting the well-being of patients and hospital staff by providing better information about the unfolding “flow of work”. Care workflows in hospitals is an area that will be fundamentally reshaped by the shift from multi-patient rooms to single-patient rooms. Patients feel uninformed and isolated, and the risk of adverse events increases. iAware envisions an AI-trained workflow technology that prioritizes the well-being of staff AND patients. It introduces a virtual ‘window’ that allows patients to stay informed about relevant care workflows and vice versa. By virtually removing the barriers between patients and staff, iAware reduces the need for redundant communication between patients and colleagues. Besides being responsible for the design of the research prototypes (a core product of iAware), the postdocs will answer two questions: What are the concrete scenarios that are relevant for providing better information about care workflows to patients and their relatives? How can prediction (machine learning) be used for better patient information and integrated into screens in the single patient room of future super hospitals?

(14) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Post Doc Position in The Future of Humanitarian Design (HUD) at the Department of Political Science, University of Copenhagen

We invite applications for a postdoctoral researcher to join the research project ‘The Future of Humanitarian Design (HUD)’. HUD is a four-year Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) funded project focused on the contemporary humanitarian challenges: war, refugee flows, forced displacement, etc. Such humanitarian challenges are rapidly worsening: contemporary conflicts are more frequent and protracted, refugee flows are rapidly destabilizing geopolitical structures, and humanitarian actors are under growing threat. In light of these dilemmas, HUD explores how emerging technologies, processes of aesthetic design, and engineering insights can be combined with knowledge from international relations to tackle the crisis facing humanitarianism. Our goal is to 1) explore how we might better integrate ‘high theoretical’ and ‘critical’ social scientific concepts and theories into the world of practice (humanitarian and beyond), 2) to see how social science can be more closely ‘bridged’ with engineering, architectural, and design practice and knowledge, and 3) therein, take up the urgent task – especially in the light of recent geopolitical events – of working collaboratively across the sciences to improve the conditions of some of the most vulnerable populations in the world.

HUD is a collaboration between the University of Copenhagen, the Geneva Graduate Institute, the Art and Design School in Geneva, and the EssentialTech Lab at EPFL Lausanne. It also integrates high-level humanitarian and policy practitioners as project partners based at organizations including Médecins sans frontières (Doctors Without Borders), Terre des hommes, and the International Committee of the Red Cross, alongside partnerships with research institutions in Colombia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Top 16 Tools for Researchers in 2022

 

(17) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc of glacial rock flour amendment to soil for improved crop productivity

The postdoc will be working within an on-going collaborative research centre, titled Centre for Geo-enhancing Biological Productivity with Glacial Rock Flour, funded by the Novo Nordic Foundation. The centre aims to assess the potential to use Greenlandic glacial rock flour (GRF) to enhance both agricultural and marine productivity while simultaneously sequestering CO2 through enhanced weathering. The centre is led by Minik Rosing at the Globe Institute at University of Copenhagen, but includes partners from Australia, Ghana, Greenland and other institutes in Denmark, including PLEN, where the current position is placed.

Our earlier work has identified that rapid weathering of GRF in active soil environments occur and we have identified that plant available potassium (K) and to some extent magnesium (Mg) is supplied to soils and plants from GRF. We have also demonstrated that although Silicon (Si) is not defined an essential plant nutrient, plants may also benefit from silicon supplied from the GRF by weathering.

The postdoc’s duties in in this part of the project will therefore include research on identifying the mechanisms for improved crop yields with application of glacial rock flour to agricultural fields, with a major emphasis on the plant nutritional benefits of GRF. Research objectives will be a) to quantify the yield and quality responses of some relevant Danish field crops to GRF on Danish soils, b) to investigate the mechanisms of GRF effects (direct and indirect) on nutrient availability to crops (especially K, Mg, Si and P interactions) and c) to study potential non-nutrient effects of GRF on soil quality and function for multiple purposes. Methodologies will include both field, pot and lab trials, and various soil and plant chemical analysis.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc in molecular microbiology and bacteria-phage interactions

The Environmental Microbial Group (EMG) at the Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences (PLEN), Section for Microbial Ecology and Biotechnology at the University of Copenhagen is offering a 21-month postdoc position within the field of bacteria-phage interactions.

The position will be located at PLEN, but will be in strong collaboration with The Molecular Microbial Ecology Group (MME) at the Department of Biology (BIO), Section for Microbiology at the University of Copenhagen.     

Bacteriophages (phages) are viral parasites that infect and kill bacteria, which might cause huge production losses in industrial facilities relying on the use of bacteria in fermentation practices. Bacteria constantly develop diverse anti-phage defense systems, but as a response, phages evolve an arsenal of counter-defense strategies. With this project, funded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation, we aim to investigate the dynamics of phage-bacterial co-evolution and explore the impact of bacterial immune defenses against phages. Our tasks will involve screening and characterizing novel anti-phage defense systems, as well as engineering combinations of defenses in industrially relevant strains to enhance their resilience towards phage infections.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral position in the Social Study of Technology Innovation & Entrepreneurship: Policies and Futures

The position is part of the project entitled “Silicon Island: Building (In)Equitable Tech Futures ‘Out of the Way’ Places” funded by the Danish Independent Research Fund (DFF) and led by Principal Investigator, Dr. Samantha Breslin. The project explores what it means for “out of the way” places to build technological futures and the ways these futures (re)configure social and economic (in)equities, focusing on the self-named “Silicon Island” of Newfoundland, Canada. Many places seek to replicate the successes of Silicon Valley, but also differ from it in terms of socioeconomic histories, cultural values, and geographic remoteness. Silicon Valley companies also face increasing critique for propagating societal ills, including multiple forms of inequity. This project uses ethnographic and computational methods to examine the frictions (Tsing 2005) of how tech futures in Newfoundland are negotiated and brought into being in the encounters across local and (inter)national scales among policies, entrepreneurs, investors, organizations, and code. It thus examines the dynamics of (in)equity shaping entrepreneurial cultures and technologies and the possibilities for building equitable futures in “out of the way” places.

(28) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc in Intimate Partner Violence Conceptualization and Measurement

The Self, Health, and Romantic Processes (SHaRP) group seeks to examine how relational factors impact mental health and health behaviors. We recently received grant funding to develop a better understanding of perceptions of IPV as well as the intra-personal and interpersonal factors that lead people to become violent in their romantic relationships (see description below). Data suggests that up to 28% of Danish women and 12% of Danish men experience intimate partner violence (IPV) at some point in their lives, and international data suggests that the numbers might be even higher; it is internationally acknowledged that these numbers likely underestimate the prevalence of IPV, depending on how IPV was measured. The research and clinical practice literature is wrought with inconsistencies regarding definitions and measurement of IPV, and lay persons’ perceptions of what is IPV are even less clear.

The project is a collaboration between Camilla S. Øverup, associate professor of medical psychology at Department of Public Health, University of Copenhagen, and Angelo M. DiBello, assistant professor at the Center of Alcohol & Substance Use Studies and the Applied Department of Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, Rutgers University, USA. In addition to us, the team will consist of a part-time student assistant, a phd student, and the postdoc.

It will study the uses of the past in the digital campaign material and social media content of political parties in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland during the build-up to these countries’ most recent national elections. Its focus concerns which pasts Nordic political parties refer to in their communication, how they embed the past in visions of the future, and how they strategically employ the past to create a sense of collective identity and shared interest to connect with potential voters. The project also investigates the discourses evolving with users in response to the parties’ social media posts. The advertised position relates primarily to the Danish and Norwegian cases and will be supervised by Manuel Menke at the University of Copenhagen with the remote support of Karoline Andrea Ihlebæk (Oslo Metropolitan University). A second postdoc at Umeå University in Sweden will be a close collaborator in the project.

About The University of Copenhagen, Denmark – Official Website

The University of Copenhagen is a public research university in Copenhagen, Denmark. Founded in 1479, the University of Copenhagen is the second-oldest university in Scandinavia, and ranks as one of the top universities in the Nordic countries and Europe.

Its establishment sanctioned by Pope Sixtus IV, the University of Copenhagen was founded by Christian I of Denmark as a Catholic teaching institution with a predominantly theological focus. In 1537, it was re-established by King Christian III as part of the Lutheran Reformation. Up until the 18th century, the university was primarily concerned with educating clergymen. Through various reforms in the 18th and 19th century, the University of Copenhagen was transformed into a modern, secular university, with science and the humanities replacing theology as the main subjects studied and taught.

The University of Copenhagen consists of six different faculties, with teaching taking place in its four distinct campuses, all situated in Copenhagen. The university operates 36 different departments and 122 separate research centres in Copenhagen, as well as a number of museums and botanical gardens in and outside the Danish capital. The University of Copenhagen also owns and operates multiple research stations around Denmark, with two additional ones located in Greenland. Additionally, The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences and the public hospitals of the Capital and Zealand Region of Denmark constitute the conglomerate Copenhagen University Hospital.

A number of prominent scientific theories and schools of thought are namesakes of the University of Copenhagen. The famous Copenhagen Interpretation of quantum mechanics was conceived at the Niels Bohr Institute, which is part of the university. The Department of Political Science birthed the Copenhagen School of Security Studies, which is also named after the university. Others include the Copenhagen School of Theology and the Copenhagen School of Linguistics.
