What will you do?
As a trainer in innovative digital techniques, you will prepare our colleagues across the organisation, both scientists and support colleagues, to use new digital technologies, such as AI and its use in applications. For example, think about using AI for working out notes, autocompleting code, data analysis or finding and summarising scientific literature. To determine what you will train us on, you will organise meetings every six months where colleagues from all research institutes gather and brainstorm which software or applications are relevant and interesting to learn more about. Together with your colleagues, you will set priorities, while taking the ethical side of using these tools also in to account. Once it has been determined what will be covered, you can start compiling the training materials. To this end, you will collaborate with experts within our own organisation's network and our wider network in the Dutch scientific community. All parties in the network can then use the training materials, creating a win-win situation. You will act as a community manager for the trainers pool we are building within the institutes and deliver the trainings together with them.
As a trainer, it is important that you are interested in the topics you deal with, have the communication and expressive skills to effectively communicate this and thus convey your training with enthusiasm. You have a positive attitude towards the use of AI, but find it important that this is done ethically and responsibly. You will give training at our institutes, so you will regularly be working on different locations in The Netherlands. You will be based in Utrecht and Amsterdam. Within our organisation, it is important that you have a curious mind and are willing to learn and develop: at NWO-I, development is of great importance.
You are part of a varied team at the NWO-I Office consisting of strategic policy advisors, the D&I project leader, the board secretary and the coordinator data stewardship, led by the head of management support & strategy.
NWO-I, the Institutes organisation of NWO, is an independent foundation belonging to the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). NWO funds scientific research, but also carries out research through the nine national research institutes housed at NWO-I: AMOLF, ARCNL, ASTRON, CWI, DIFFER, Nikhef, NIOZ, NSCR and SRON. NWO-I has a Support Office alongside the institutes. The NWO institutes fulfil national and international roles. NWO institutes are national expertise centres; incubators for scientific innovation; breeding grounds for talent; connectors in national and international research; or developers, managers and enablers of large infrastructures or large datasets. Research at NWO institutes is driven by curiosity and societal challenges.
Scientific and societal questions of national strategic importance require research with long-term commitment and the pooling of multidisciplinary expertise and facilities. NWO institutes realise knowledge and solutions with scientific and societal impact by carrying out, making accessible and disseminating groundbreaking, honest and excellent research. The NWO-I Office supports the Governing Board and the NWO institutes. The NWO-I Office employs about 60 people.
Our institutes are regularly in the news with pioneering research and with technology and participation in major international research missions. They are part of global cooperation around organisations such as CERN, ESO, ESA, ITER, etc.
