Lecturer

Do you want to contribute to a good quality of BSc and MSc education of Animal Sciences students that specialize in Adaptation Physiology? Do you like to supervise and coach students to discover and improve their research qualities and do you like to organize and take responsibility? Then you are the candidate we are looking for.
Your task will focus on further improving the learning processes of our BSc and MSc students. This includes re-organizing and chairing the thesis ring, evaluating MSc-internships, and supervising BSc- and MSc thesis students. It also includes working on bottlenecks we face in maintaining and improving the quality of specifically small-scale education with the increase in student numbers. You will work closely together with the education coordinator of the chair group.

Postdoc Behavioural Neuroscience ‘Effects of stress on the start of life’

This EFRO-funded project called LIFESTART aims to delineate the effect of stress on the start of life of animals. The bigger context of the project involves the improvement of the lives of farm animals which are used for food production. A healthier start of live will improve the quality of life and their reproduction. In the workpackage associated with this vacancy, rodents will be used. The effects of early life stress on later life development, specifically social interactions, will be studied.

Physiology, gut health and neural correlates of early life stress effects will be determined across developmental milestones in life. Moreover, new technologies regarding the assessment of group behaviours (mother-offspring and offspring-offspring interactions) and communication (localization of ultrasonic vocalizations) as well as physiology (heart rate) will be tested in collaboration with the companies Sorama and Noldus IT. To analyse the neuronal consequences of early life stress we will use a transgenic rodent model allowing the tagging of activated neurons (FosTRAP2 mice).

You will design, perform and analyse rodent experiments, and pioneer new technologies in collaboration with companies. You will collaborate with scientists with varying disciplines, participate in international conferences, and prepare manuscripts for publication. Depending on your career aspirations you have the opportunity to explore further career steps with the help of your supervisors.

Tenure track assistant associate professor in Bioinformatics or Computational biology Research

Are you an independent researcher in bioinformatics, turning your enthusiasm and creativity into high-level science, engaging education and societally relevant innovations? Are you collaborative and well organized? Are you ready to grow in a tenure track career path and would you like to work in a diverse and supportive group? Then this may be the right position for you.

We are looking for a highly motivated assistant / associate professor in bioinformatics or computational biology. You have a good scientific track record and a drive to develop your own research line. You can attract funding to build and support a group and you are able to set up a strong academic and industrial network. Your research should connect method development to application, be relevant for plant, animal or microbial biotechnology, and complement the current expertise in the group. Relevant areas include (but are not limited to) metagenomics, metabolomics, proteomics and phenomics. You strive to become an enthusiastic and knowledgeable teacher and supervisor in bioinformatics, offering high-quality education to BSc, MSc and PhD students in topics ranging from data analysis and computation to (molecular) biology. Finally, you are a collaborative team member, contributing to the organization of our group, the university and the scientific community at large. You will spend approximately 40% of your time on research, 40% on education and 20% on organization.

PhD Position 'Modelling farmer's behavioural responses to agricultural and environmental policy'

The Business Economics (BEC) group starts up a PhD project focusing on improving the understanding of farmer's behavioural responses to the agricultural and environmental policy. Theories and methods from two fields, namely production economics and behavioural economics, will be combined in this project. The project should result in publishable research output.

Background
The European Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) was initially designed to enhance food security and farmers' incomes by increasing productivity. Policy makers realise more and more that pressure on the environment should decrease whilst increasing productivity to feed the growing world population. The new CAP instruments reflect this increasing focus on economic and environmental objectives. Modelling farmers' production decisions traditionally focused on marketable inputs and outputs, ignoring by-products such as greenhouse gas emissions. However, given the shifting priorities of the CAP, there is a need for understanding farmers' behavioural responses to the new CAP instruments.
