Duration: 3 y        Workload: 100%
Duties: Evolutionary responses to anthropogenic global warming, and more fundamentally, changing stochastic environmental conditions, is currently an active area of biological research. Recent theoretical developments provide predictions for the relative role of Darwinian genetic evolution and adaptive phenotypic plasticity in temporally autocorrelated environment.

Department: Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences
Duration: 3 y        Workload: 38 hours per week
Duties: At the margins of the North Atlantic (in the Labrador, Irminger, and Nordic Seas), surface waters cool, mix vertically with waters below, sink, and return southward at depth. This so-called Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) is of paramount importance for climate. Models predict that it slackens as climate warms, with considerable consequences. However, ocean eddies - recently found to be crucial for the sinking of dense waters - are still lacking in this picture. This project aims to quantify the role of eddies for the response of the AMOC to high-latitude climate change, covering all relevant scales. The post-doc will analyse the role of eddies based on pairs of eddy-resolving and non-eddy resolving global-scale ocean simulations. Lagrangian techniques, among others, are applied to identify where dense waters sink, how they spread through the deep oceans, and how changes in surface conditions impact this
Minimum Requirements: We are looking for an enthusiastic post-doc with a strong background in physical oceanography and/or (environmental) fluid mechanics, and strong numerical modelling skills. You have a PhD in physical oceanography, civil engineering, physics, mathematics, or a related subject. You have experience with numerical simulations and handling and analysing large data sets, and have begun building a publication record. You are able to work in a multidisciplinary team including oceanographers, civil engineers and mathematicians, and have good written and spoken communication skills in English.

Duties: Cloud computing has become the new computing paradigm because of its pay‐as‐you‐go accounting, its elasticity, flexibility and user customization. However, High Performance Computing (HPC) in a Cloud is still an open issue that needs significant efforts in research. The reasons for that are the poor interconnect and I/O performance a cloud normally has, the existing HPC‐ignoring cloud schedulers, and the inherent heterogeneity of cloud hardware and user software, and its multi‐user operation. These are the bottlenecks that hamper efficient execution of HPC simulation codes in a cloud, for example
Minimum Requirements: The searched person must have a good master degree in Computer Science or Computer Engineering, good English knowledge, good programming skills and the willingness and capability to learn Python, Open Stack and scheduling.

Department: Business Administration
Duration: until August 31st 2018
Duties: Project: "Managing innovation efficiency in a knowledge-based economy: Hybrid strategies for variation and selection and the role of organizational capabilities". While firms may innovate and solve related problems in varied ways, the more efficient will use less time, effort, and other resources to do so. Innovation is inherently based on variation and selection which are attained by divergent or convergent knowledge creation and cognitive or experiential evaluation, respectively. This research, however, is based on the idea that efficient innovation results from a synthesized divergence and convergence of knowledge for variation and a joint cognitive and experiential evaluation for selection. This research has the goal to study the organizational capabilities to reconcile these conflicting demands
Minimum Requirements: Applicants should have excellent grades and a university graduate degree with a distinction of at least "magna cum laude" in Business Administration, Economics or a related discipline (e.g., Engineering or Natural Sciences ideally with a Business Minor).
