Ph.D. Research in Energy Transition

Deadline: Dec 1, 2021

The MAGPIE consortium, consisting of 4 ports (Lighthouse port Rotterdam, Fellow Ports DeltaPort (inland), Sines and HAROPA), 9 research institutes and universities, 32 private companies and 4 other institutes, forms a unique collaboration addressing the missing link between green energy supply and green energy use in port-related transport and the implementation of digitalisation, automation, and autonomy to increase transport efficiency. This project accelerates the introduction of green energy carriers combined with realisation of and logistic optimisation in ports through automation and autonomous operations. A living lab approach is applied in which technological and nontechnological innovations are developed or demonstrated. All results feed into the Master Plan for the future European green port, aiming at full decarbonisation by 2050 by providing solutions that can be implemented immediately to make significant steps in decarbonisation already by 2030.

We are seeking highly motivated students with demonstrated academic ability, those who possess a commitment to interdisciplinary research on significant information technology and management issues, and those who desire to pursue an academic research career in this field.

Ph.D. Research in Smart and Sustainable Transport in Ports

Deadline: Dec 1, 2021

As part of a large European project MAGPIE , we offer a PhD position in smart and sustainable transport within ports. With the increasing awareness of climate change, industries are under more and more pressure to reduce their carbon footprint. One sector that contributes significantly to CO2 emission are international ports. In this project, we study ways to reduce the carbon footprint of one of the largest ports in the world. To do this, we study the implementation of electric, and potentially autonomous, transportation modes within the port. We will particularly focus on two modes of transport: 1) autonomous and electric barges for inter-terminal transportation, 2) green connected trucks. In two separate work packages, we study the challenges in the implementation of these green alternatives. In the third part of the research, we develop a simulation model combined with optimization that can determine the optimal use of the different modes of transportation.

PhD candidates to research societal impact of AI

Deadline: Oct 15, 2021

Whether it’s grocery shopping or dating, managing our work life, finding out about (possible) future diseases, or streaming a show on Netflix; artificial intelligence (AI) is changing our daily life.

What is the next step for AI? The interdisciplinary Erasmus Initiative ‘Societal Impact of AI’ aims for innovative research and education in AI that places society centre stage. Together with key stakeholders we will set the expectations for the use of AI that benefits society, bringing AI closer to the people. We focus on ensuring human augmentation with AI – AI that works in a manner consistent with the expectations of individual citizens and society.

To do so, we set the rules of engagement for the application of AI in key domains of our society, including work, media, health, and (urban) art. As a team, we address hot topics such as urban AI, deep fake, medical decision making, and digital placemaking and street art. We embrace a multidisciplinary and multimethod approach, including data science, citizen science, and living labs. We also create new opportunities for citizens, students, scholars and organisations to unlock their full potential with AI as co-worker and trusted advisor.

As a PhD candidate, you will get the unique opportunity to help shape the Initiative with your research plan. Closely collaborating with your fellow PhDs and mentored by top scholars from various disciplines, you are encouraged and supported to conduct your PhD project. The position starts in January 2022.
