Six Postdoctoral Research Fellows at University of Groningen

For the pathfinder projects we are now recruiting six postdoctoral research fellows with a strong background in astronomy, biophysics, chemistry, microbiology, ecology, evolutionary biology, mathematics, computational science, molecular biosciences or planetary and geosciences, and with the ability to perform innovative and multidisciplinary research. The recruited fellows will, jointly with several research groups in The Netherlands, further define and execute the projects. They will thereby be centrally involved in advanced and multidisciplinary research of great scientific and public interest.

Job description

Fellowships are available within each of the following five projects.

217354 Developing, testing and operating the Origins Simulator
217355 Identifying factors enabling predictability of evolution
217356 Building and directing life (2 positions)
217357 Modelling planet earth as an exoplanet
217358 Mathematically understanding downward causation.

Each fellow will be hosted by a research group involved in the Origins Center initiative and be employed by the host’s university or research institute, and will cooperate with at least one other research group in another field of expertise and preferably in another university or research institute.

The fellow’s tasks will include:
• further conceptualising, planning, and executing a pathfinder project
• reaching out to and collaborating with research groups in The Netherlands and abroad
• forging linkages between the five pathfinder projects and with the relevant research community at large
• contributing to a programme of public outreach.


The successful candidate will have:
• a recently obtained PhD in a relevant field as indicated above
• an excellent track record as shown by publications, invitations, awards and honorary positions
• a sound grasp of issues, concepts and methods linked to the pathfinder project targeted in the application, and the ambition, resourcefulness, perseverance and cooperative skills needed to bring the project to a successful closure
• strong communication skills both towards direct collaborators and towards the wider research community
• an interest in science communication targeted at a variety of audiences
• good written and oral knowledge of English.

Some specific requirements linked to the separate projects are indicated in the separate pathfinder project descriptions:
