This position will include working with academics from both the Department of Environmental Science and the Data Science group at the Institute for Computing and Information Sciences.
The mission of the Environmental Science research cluster of Radboud University is to provide high-quality scientific knowledge that can be used to help people move towards a more sustainable society. To achieve this, we aim to understand, project and address the impact of anthropogenic pressures on ecosystems and humans, from the landscape to the global scale.
Environmental Science is part of the Radboud Institute for Biological and Environmental Sciences
(RIBES) at the Faculty of Science. RIBES, consisting of three research clusters (Ecology & Physiology, Microbiology, and Environmental Science), aims to understand the response of the natural environment to human impact and investigates stress and adaptation processes in severely affected ecosystems. This fundamental research is cross-linked with innovative applications in both industry and society with a focus on mitigating ecosystem degradation and climate change and finding solutions to restore the natural environment. We value a diverse workforce and strongly encourage candidates from non-traditional backgrounds and historically marginalised or underrepresented groups to apply.
The Data Science group is embedded in the Institute for Computing and Information Sciences
at the Faculty of Science
, and aims to develop theory and methods for scalable machine learning and information retrieval to address challenging problems in science and society. The group's main research foci are 1) the design and understanding of deep/causal machine learning methods, 2) modern information retrieval and big data, and 3) computational immunology, with a keen eye on applications in other scientific domains as well as industry.
The Data Science group is part of the vibrant and growing Institute for Computing and Information Sciences (iCIS), consistently ranked as one of the top Computer Science departments in the Netherlands (National Research Review Computer Science). Our group currently consists of 50 researchers, including some 25 PhDs, and offers a very open, inclusive and supportive work environment.
We are keen to meet critical thinkers who want to look closer at what really matters. People who, from their expertise, wish to contribute to a healthy, free world with equal opportunities for all. This ambition unites more than 24,000 students and 5,600 employees at Radboud University and requires even more talent, collaboration and lifelong learning. You have a part to play!
