Postdoc Maximising growth and development in vertical farms for speed breeding

Are you that enthusiastic researcher that likes to work on the physiology of plants grown under fully controlled conditions?

Together with a consortium of an inter-disciplinary team of researchers and companies, we are starting a large research programme of 17 PhDs/Postdocs entitled 'Sky High: Vertical farming, a revolution in plant production'.
Vertical farming is a novel technology where plants are grown on many stacked layers with LED light. It is a secure and sustainable route to provide cities with fresh food. This program targets a revolution in the production of fresh vegetables. The ambition is a secure and sustainable vegetable supply: no pesticides, no nutrient emission, only 2-4 litres water per kg produce, at least twentyfold less land use, lower food mileage, less waste and lower energy use per kg produce compared to greenhouses. These vegetables have a greatly improved quality (taste, aroma, appearance, shelf life, nutritional value, safety) compared to conventionally produced vegetables. The Sky High programme will develop concepts for design and control of vertical farms that meet all mentioned targets on sustainability, yield, and quality, based on a research on the different components of vertical farming.
To realise these targets a fundamental understanding of the different components of vertical farming is needed. For breeders vertical farming can also be a tool to shorten the cycle from seed to seed. The aim of the here announced postdoc project is to hasten flowering and seed development in lettuce by environmental regulation (in particular by light spectra). Besides, we also aim to investigate the maximum growth rate of lettuce (biomass increase) possible in vertical farms.

The chair group Horticulture & Product Physiology
The chair group Horticulture and Product Physiology conducts high impact research and educates students providing the scientific basis required to answer questions that are of utmost importance for sustainable crop production and product quality in horticulture.
The research focus is on how physiological processes in crops, plants and plant organs interact with the abiotic environment and how this affects crop production and product quality. Questions arising from horticultural practice are translated into fundamental research topics, aiming to explain mechanisms. The research and education contributes to sustainably feeding the World with healthy high-quality products.
The chair group is an international team consisting of 14 permanent staff members, about 25 PhD candidates and postdocs and a number of guest researchers. Each year about 40 MSc students conduct their thesis study (a 6-month research) at our group. We organize and participate in a variety of courses for BSc and MSc students to transfer knowledge on horticulture (pre- and post harvest), environmental physiology and product quality.

PhD student for a project on the role of environmental factors on cardio-metabolic health across the lifespan

Exposure to environmental factors, such as air pollution, noise and the built environment, are associated with cardiometabolic health outcomes, including obesity, type 2 diabetes and atherosclerosis. The cardiometabolic health trajectories leading to these outcomes may start in early life, in the fetal, childhood and adolescent periods. The aim of this project is to examine the role played by early-life exposure to environmental factors in cardiometabolic health trajectories in childhood and adolescence and to identify underlying biological mechanisms (e.g. DNA methylation and metabolomics).

The project is part of a large European-Horizon 2020 funded consortium, LongITools, involving multiple national and international institutions and the analysis of data from human cohorts spanning pregnancy to old age. The LongITools project will investigate how longitudinal trajectories of exposure to environmental factors contribute to cardiometabolic health across the life course and identify underlying biological mechanisms.

You will be embedded within the Generation R Study, a unique Rotterdam-based birth cohort that started in 2002 and has been following the lives of nearly 10,000 children across development. You will use environmental, biological and health data from the Generation R Study for this research project. Data collection in the Generation R Study includes longitudinal data from pregnancy up to 13 years of age, collected based on questionnaires, extensive in-person measurements at the Generation R research center and advanced molecular and imaging data.

You will participate in the Generation R data collection, analyse data and write peer-reviewed international publications that will result in a PhD thesis. During your PhD, you will take an MSc course in (Genetic) Epidemiology at the Netherlands Institute for Health Sciences. You will be supervised by Dr. Janine Felix, principal investigator for epigenetic epidemiology in Generation R, and Prof.dr. Vincent Jaddoe, head Generation R Core Facility.

Fellow Paediatric Anaesthesia

The Paediatric Anaesthesia Fellowship at Amalia Children's Hospital in Nijmegen (The Netherlands) and, if desired, at UZ Leuven (Belgium) is a twelve months education and training program in all aspects of paediatric anaesthesia. The clinical and didactic education curriculum includes paediatric pain management and perioperative anaesthetic care for neonates, infants, children and adolescents both in the operating room and in remote locations. Fellows work under staff supervision in the provision of anaesthetic care.

Fellows are expected to take an active role in educational activities, clinical and basic science research when appropriate. According to your level of training and experience, you will gain independence and responsibility for supervision of anaesthesia trainees in both departments.

Fellows need to demonstrate proficiency in perioperative management of patients, including appropriate preoperative assessment, investigations, technical and procedural skills, clinical judgement and decision-making and postoperative care.

The role and responsibilities of a fellow are:

The standard workweek is Monday to Friday, with weekends off except when on call. You are expected to be available from 07.30 -18.00 hours each day. Preparation for complex cases in the operating room may require earlier attendance so that the case will commence at the booked time. You may not commence an anesthetic without first consulting with your staff supervisor. Inpatients must be seen pre-operatively and problems discussed with staff the day before surgery. You will be expected to keep a logbook of clinical activities. A sample of logbook can be found here: AnaestheticsApp for android (Playstore).

You will participate in the acute pain service.

Each fellow is expected to develop skills as an educator by teaching residents, medical students or other allied health professionals; organizing and moderating problem based learning discussions or journal clubs, and creating and delivering lectures. You will be expected to attend the following;

  • National anaesthesia congress.
  • International anaesthesia congress
  • APLS course, and good clinical practice course.

Active participation in departmental research or quality assurance projects is expected and encouraged. The fellowship appointment includes one non-clinical day per week reserved for departmental related research following one month of clinical duties only. Additional research time may be available, based on demonstrated need. Conversely, non-clinical days can be retracted if not sufficiently utilized. You are expected to spend non-clinical days in the hospital (7:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.) unless other arrangements have been made. It is the expectation of the department that fellows will produce work to be presented at national or international congresses. Certification of having completed good clinical practice course is required for all study investigators.

On calls
Weekday on calls will start between 5:30 and 8 pm (depending on the hospital) till 7:30 or 8 am the following day. The on-call fellow will have no clinical responsibilities the day following on call. On-call frequency is expected to be 1 in 9. You remain on-site in the hospital during call. On-call responsibilities include anaesthetic care for emergency theatre cases, managing pain service calls, and attendance at trauma calls and cardiac arrests. A consultant anaesthetist is available on call to supervise all anaesthetics.


The anaesthesia fellow's main responsibility is airway management, but assistance in all other aspects trauma management may be required.

Technical Support Co-worker Electron Microscopy

Current microscopy tools provide a limited view of biological systems and tend to focus on a specific biological scale (such as proteins, cells, or tissues) in an often artificial context, like isolated proteins or extracted cells. To advance the field of imaging, we need to push the boundaries of which biological processes we can visualize and measure. This means imaging across biological scales and in the necessary context, such as viewing protein interactions inside a cell or cell signaling in the living system - tasks that are mostly beyond current capabilities.

Radboud Technology Center (RTC) Microscopy provides advanced imaging tools, and support for their use to the scientific community of Radboud University. We also work on the development of new imaging techniques, to realize the imaging of the future. The RTC Microscopy is home to researchers from Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences of the Radboud University Medical Center.

We are looking for an enthusiastic Technical Support co-worker with a bachelor (hbo) degree in laboratory research (hlo). The project will be carried out at the Electron Microscopy Center of Radboudumc, within the RTC | Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences (RIMLS) of the Radboud University Medical Center, Nijmegen - The Netherlands. The co-worker will be appointed in the department of Biochemistry in the group of Prof. Nico Sommerdijk.

He/she will develop and apply advanced electron microscopic techniques for the structural and chemical analysis of biological materials (hard and soft tissues). The work will be performed to support the activities of the Radboud Technology Center Microscopy, both in service and by being associated to specific scientific EM-oriented projects. (~50:50)

The co-worker will specialize in 3D cryogenic FIB/SEM for volume imaging of biological materials, where he/she will train, assist and support researchers in performing and analyzing their experiments. In addition he/she will perform research within specific projects to push the borders of advanced EM techniques and to apply them to answer open scientific questions. The main focus of the project will be on hard tissue formation (e.g. the mechanisms of bone formation). Furthermore the co-worker will contribute to the running of the Electron Microscopy Center and to the maintenance of the infrastructure.
