University of Gothenburg, Department of Marine Sciences|
The University of Gothenburg has 38 000 students and 6 000 employees, and is one of the largest Universities in the Nordic countries. Strong research and study programs attract scientists and students from around the world. The advertised positions are within the department of Marine Science, located at the main campus in Gothenburg and at the two marine research laboratories at Tjärnö and Kristineberg (www.marine.gu.se). Two positions are currently being advertised in this research project funded by the Swedish Research Council Formas.Job assignmentsIndustrial aquaponics is a high-density agricultural technique that combines elements of both aquaculture and hydroponics in a synergistic production technology that utilizes fish wastes as plant fertilizer, thus reducing input and waste disposal requirements of both systems.Technological advances are increasingly moving aquaponics away from small-scale production into industrial environments by focusing on improved macro- and micronutrient recovery. Improvements in engineering design have been able to significantly increase output capacities and have now made industrial aquaponics applications a commercial reality. One method for instance, is the use of decoupled aquaponics systems in which sludge digesters utilize microbial communities to efficiently reuse solid wastes. Although many of the largest facilities worldwide are still in arid regions, this technology is also becoming more popular in Europe as design advances have increasingly made aquaponics not just a water-saving enterprise, but also an energy and waste reduction system. Although some systems are focused primarily on production, others also include an educational mandate, particularly those in urban environments where micro-farming and vertical-growth greenhouses have become popular. As growth parameters differ between fish and plants, the microbiome plays a significant role in remineralization and bioavailability of nutrients in aquaponic systems. Although technical specifications for pH, microbial remineralization and nitrification processes have received much research attention, relatively few studies have characterized other types of bacterial assemblages that either inhibit or stimulate fish and plant growth. For instance, biocontrol of microbes is an important consideration for both producers and consumers, given that the use of disinfection chemicals or antibiotics to control pathogens, or probiotics and phytogenics to stimulate growth, can have profound effects on microbial populations and hence plant and animal health throughout a closed system.Beneficial microbes are important at all stages of production and can be enhanced by the addition of probiotics as they are crucial to the functioning of biofilters and sludge digesters. They serve important functions in improve fish gut health and to reduce the spread of pathogens in the aquaculture component, as well as in promoting plant growth and rooting. To-date, there is considerable discipline-specific literature in aquaculture, hydroponics and bioengineering that can help inform and enhance microbial performance in aquaponics. However, there is limited understanding of linkages in the microbiome among compartments of aquaponics systems.The position is part of a project examining the role of microbial populations in recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS), in anaerobic digesters and in hydroponics (HYP) units with the goal of better understanding conditions that will maximise beneficial transfers of microbes and their products among components of decoupled aquaponics systems. There are many different approaches to examining these aspects of production, from the use of next-generation sequencing to map microbial communities, or biochemical analyses to characterize how microbes improve nutrition for fish and plants. Hence the specific scientific background of the candidate is less important than their interest in the topics and demonstrated qualifications in their respective field.We are seeking a candidate who is independent and self-motivated given that details of the project can be adjusted based on the candidate’s skills and interests. The candidate will be working in a multidisciplinary team of engineers, pathologists, food scientists, modellers and policy-makers involving several international research groups, thus exemplary teamwork and communication skills as well as the ability to travel are essential. The candidate will be expected to lead their project but i) develop and discuss their ideas with team members and the PI; ii) to initiate and carry out their work within a collaborative environment but with limited supervision; iii) write well-formulated reports and academic articles.The candidate will be responsible for running applied experiments in several different labs internationally, thus requiring flexibility for extended stays in various locations; further international travel will also be necessary to participate in meetings, working groups, conferences and visits with industry partners. Candidate must possess a PhD in molecular biology, microbiology, biochemistry, veterinary medicine, bioengineering, biotechnology, cell biology or related disciplines. It is not a requirement that the candidate has experience with aquaponics or prior experience in hydroponic crop production (commercial greenhouse facilities) and/or the operation of recirculating aquaculture systems, but such experience would be useful. Please note clearly on your application if you have any relevant skills such as technical operation of aquarium / aquaculture tanks, hydroponics or irrigation systems, or prior work in the operation of multiphase bioreactors.See website for application details. Employment termsA start date is required prior to May 15, 2019, but the exact start date for this position is negotiable depending on the availability of a suitable candidate. The post-doctoral fellow will be hired for a two-year period to lead this project. Extent: 100 %. Application procedureThe application must include:A CV and short cover letter that describes how the applicant meets the selection criteriaFull text of three accepted peer-reviewed manuscriptsName and contact details of three refereesRegulations for the evaluation of qualifications for academic positions are given in Chapter 4, Section 3 - 4 of the Higher Education Ordinance.Contact informationFor further information about the position, please contact Alyssa Joyce: [email protected]

Postdoc on water distribution systems analysis|
Looking for Postdocs; MSc/PhD students (preferable graduates of: Civil and Environmental Engineering, Mathematics, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Physics, Industrial Engineering) for immediate hiring on an ISF (Israeli Science Foundation) project on:Dynamic Approach for Water Distribution Systems Clustering and AggregationIt is hard to overestimate the significance of water distribution infrastructure for modern day society sustainable existence and development. Management of water distribution system (WDS) that usually comprises thousands to tenth thousands of nodes and links is a complex problem, since its objectives include, in addition to supplying the water in the required quantities and quantities, sustaining conditions such as failure scenarios, detection of contamination intrusions sources, sensor placement, leakage minimization, etc. Consequently, to achieve save and resilient water supply, the efforts might be assigned (1) to obtain WDS representation in a simplified form that helps to gain insight into the system’s structure and the interaction of its components, (2) to change actual WDS structure to simplify its management without worsening the network performance. An effective and accurate method for WDS separation into clusters will be beneficial for both applications. To date, WDS clustering is based on static representation of the system. Though, it has been shown that dynamic approach to WDS operation results in drastically different system partitioning, which affects partition-dependent tasks. This opens a new and very perspective angle in WDS clustering study – a dynamic clustering approach. The main objective of the proposed research is to develop a generic method for WDS dynamic clustering, implement it for real-sized water networks, and investigate the method’s performance on benchmark clustering problems including optimal sensor placement, contaminant identification and seclusion, leakage detection and minimization, and WDS partitioning to district metering areas. Preliminary results show that dynamic system properties that form the basis of dynamic clustering provide crucial insights into system behavior requisite for appropriate actions following WDS contamination. As a result of the proposed study, new generic methodology for WDS dynamic clustering is expected to be developed featuring exploration, adaptation, and modification of dynamic clustering algorithms for their use in WDS in accordance to its specific characteristics, and automatic, self-organized algorithms for clustering update in response to changes in WDS operation.--------------------------------------------------------------------------For more information, please contact: Avi Ostfeld; [email protected]

McGill University, Department of Psychiatry|
Research Postdoctoral Fellowship|
Dr. Brett Thombs (www.thombsresearchteam.ca/) of McGill University and the Scleroderma Patient-centered Intervention Network (SPIN; www.spinsclero.com), in partnership with Scleroderma Canada (www.scleroderma.ca), is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to coordinate the Scleroderma Support group Leader EDucation (SPIN-SSLED) Program. This is a two-year position supported by the Mitacs fellowship program (www.mitacs.ca/en). People with rare diseases face the same challenges as people with more common diseases, as well as additional unique challenges, but typically cannot access disease-specific professional support services. Peer-led support groups often fill this gap. Scleroderma, is a rare autoimmune connective tissue disease that causes significant disability and disfigurement. There are over 200 peer-led scleroderma support groups affiliated with the patient organization Scleroderma Canada and SPIN’s patient organization partners in the USA, UK, and Australia. Many patients, however, cannot access support groups. In other cases, support groups are not sustained due to factors that include demands on group leaders living with a burdensome disease and limited organizational and group management skills of group leaders. The SPIN-SSLED Program is an innovative 13-week training and educational program for scleroderma support group leaders that is delivered to support group leaders internationally via videoconference. The objectives of the SPIN-SSLED Program are to improve support group leader efficacy and, thus, to increase the effectiveness and sustainability of existing scleroderma support groups, reduce burden on support group leaders, and increase the availability of scleroderma support groups. SPIN recently completed a successful feasibility trial (https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03508661?term=brett+thombs&rank=2) with positive results, including a high level of satisfaction with the program, substantially increased leader self-efficacy, and substantially reduced leader burden.The fellow will gain training in research designed in partnership with patients and patient organizations, which will directly impact support and quality of life outcomes for people with a devastating rare disease. The fellow will be responsible for coordinating a randomized controlled trial that will be conducted collaboratively between SPIN and Scleroderma Canada, to test the effectiveness of the SPIN-SSLED Program. The postdoctoral fellow will gain experience in the training and education of patient support group leaders, partnering with patient organizations from Canada, the USA, the UK, and Australia, the management of a large international trial, data analysis, manuscript development (including first-authored publications), dissemination of results via national and international conferences, grant writing, and the supervision of students and staff.Training Environment: SPIN is an international collaboration of over 150 members, including patients, patient organizations, researchers, and health care providers from 7 countries (Canada, USA, UK, France, Spain, Australia, Mexico) that is directed by Dr. Thombs. SPIN actively partners with > 20 Canadian and international patient organizations and maintains a cohort of > 1,800 patients from > 40 recruiting sites. The postdoctoral fellow will interact with SPIN’s international multidisciplinary team, which includes psychologists, rheumatologists, methodologists, and patient research partners from around the world. Dr. Thombs is affiliated with the McGill’s Departments of Psychiatry, Psychology, and Epidemiology, and the fellow will have the opportunity to participate in training activities, including seminars, in these departments and at the Jewish General Hospital. In addition to leading SPIN, Dr. Thombs is known for his expertise in research methodology, including trials, and he is leading an international team that is developing guidelines for reporting novel trials conducted in cohorts and using other routinely conducted data (www.researchintegrityjournal.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s41073-018-0053-3). In the last 5 years, trainees under Dr. Thombs’ supervision have first-authored 56 peer-reviewed articles (plus 7 submitted for review) and have co-authored articles more than 120 times. The fellow will spend 25% of the fellowship onsite at Scleroderma Canada headquarters (Hamilton, Ontario) in order to gain hands-on experience working with a dynamic organization that partners with researchers to develop and disseminate tools, including the SPIN-SSLED Program, to support patients.Eligibility: Applicants should have a recent doctoral degree in a health-related field, such as health psychology, public health, or epidemiology, for example.

Equality Group is seeking a post-doc to help develop an efficient and effective assessment tool which can measure cognitive diversity and cultural alignment across teams.|
About the Project:Equality Group is seeking a post-doc to help develop an efficient and effective assessment tool which can measure cognitive diversity and cultural alignment across teams. They need someone who understands the range of existing assessment tools in this field and can evolve and adapt one to help promote diversity and inclusion within the private sector. It is essential that the data from the assessment tool can be proven to be statistically relevant.Often there is a perceived conflict between hiring more diversely and preserving "culture fit", which an assessment tool measuring both factors could help alleviate. At the same time, existing psychometric tools are fairly time intensive and limited in scope when applied to diversity and inclusion. The aim for the Equality assessment tool would be a test that takes no more than 10-15 minutes for individuals to complete. It would give insightful data on how cognitively diverse and culturally aligned an existing team is. This same test could then be given to any potential new joiners to understand how they contribute to the cognitive diversity and cultural alignment of the team. Candidate Profile:The ideal candidate would have experience with multiple psychometric and personality profiling tools and have studied one or more of Psychology, Neuroscience, Organisational Behaviour, Leadership development. We are seeking someone who can advise on the design, content and structure of the Equality assessment tool based on previous research and work. The individual does not need to be a diversity specialist and the technology development side of the tool will be managed by another consultant.About Equality GroupEquality Group harnesses the power of diverse leaders for Finance, Technology and Social Impact. They change the business landscape by widening the range of exceptional candidates and offering them unique leadership opportunities. Their consultancy service helps companies attract, retain and develop diverse talent, which the Executive Search service headhunts.
