Faculty of Science
The University of Amsterdam (UvA) is the Netherlands' largest university, offering the widest range of academic programmes. At the UvA, 42,000 students, 6,000 staff members and 3,000 PhD candidates study and work in a diverse range of fields, connected by a culture of curiosity.
The Faculty of Science (FNWI) has a student body of around 8,000, as well as 1,800 members of staff working in education, research or support services. Researchers and students at the Faculty of Science are fascinated by every aspect of how the world works, be it elementary particles, the birth of the universe or the functioning of the brain.
The mission of the Informatics Institute (IvI) is to perform curiosity-driven and use-inspired fundamental research in Computer Science. The main research themes are Artificial Intelligence, Computational Science and Systems and Network Engineering. Our research involves complex information systems at large, with a focus on collaborative, data driven, computational and intelligent systems, all with a strong interactive component.
The research will be carried out in the in the Computational Science Lab
(CSL), part of the Informatics Institute, in close collaboration with the Amsterdam University Medical Centers
(AUMC). CSL aims to make dynamic complex systems tractable through mathematical and computational modelling and simulation. The group consists of researchers who together a broad range of dynamical systems in fields including biomedicine, urban environments, socioeconomic systems, coral growth, and the human immune system. Being interdisciplinary in nature, the group has many interactions and collaborations with other research groups and institutions as well as a wide range of stakeholders (public and private).
