Vacancies

Would you like to participate in the scientific quest for the origin of life and evolution at a Dutch university or at a knowledge institute? The Origins Center is happy to connect you to its research network. Below you’ll find a selection of current vacancies in our scientific field.

Groningen University

PhD Position in Astrobiology

The PhD position is focused on tying the concept of habitability to galaxy formation and building a ladder of habitability (from stellar to galactic to cosmological scales). Given the breadth of the project, we invite candidates with a background in physics/astrophysics who will be trained in the biology perspective. More information via Pratika Dayal.

The formal ad should appear in January.

Biomarkers in planetary and exoplanetary atmospheres - Postdoc position Origins of life studies

(Astro-)physicists, chemists and biologists from four research institutes (API, HIMS, IBED and SILS) of the University of Amsterdam have set up a collaborative research and training program on the origins and fundamental aspects of life, including the possibilities for life elsewhere in the universe or alternative life forms on Earth. This is connected to the Origins Center. The projects focus on studying networks of molecules and/or organisms of minimal complexity, using a chemical and a computational approach, and on the discovery of new biomarkers for remote detection of life.
