Jobs

Leuven is a great place to work. Find out for yourself, many of our members could be looking for a candidate just like you. 

PhD position + teaching assistant for statistics

The successful candidate will work in the Research Group of Quantitative Psychology and Individual Differences under the supervision of Eva Ceulemans and/or Peter Kuppens. The group offers an international, productive, collaborative, and interactive environment with about 6 faculty and 26 graduate and postgraduate students, that all study different aspects of emotion dynamics. The successful candidate will also become a member of the RE-Connect Interuniversity Research Consortium. RE-Connect pools different fields of expertise to study the dynamics of interpersonal emotional interactions in the domain of work, family, mental health, and across cultures, and to establish what healthy and productive emotional interactions look like in each domain. The work packages within the consortium focus on (1) the development of statistical methods to capture emotional connectedness in dyadic data, (2) emotional connectedness in leader-follower dyads (from different cultures), (3) emotional connectedness in couples (across cultures), and (4) emotional connectedness in relation to mental health problems. The RE-Connect consortium is a collaboration between five PI's (at three Flemish universities) with different domains of expertise, who are each at the top of their field: methodology and statistics, emotion research, organizational psychology, cultural psychology, clinical psychology, and family psychology. The consortium PI team consists of: Eva Ceulemans (KU Leuven), Peter Kuppens (KU Leuven), Joeri Hofmans (VUB), Batja Mesquita (KU Leuven), Lesley Verhofstadt (Ghent University). In the run-up to this project, the consortium PIs have inspired and complemented each other. We very much hope that the successful candidate will equally enjoy, as well as benefit from, the complementarity of available expertise. The University of Leuven is a research-oriented institution and is consistently ranked among the top research universities in Europe. Leuven is one of the oldest university towns in Europe, about 30 km from Brussels. It has a rich history and a unique friendly atmosphere.

CONTINUOUS BIOSENSING OF BIOFLUIDS WITH DNA ORIGAMI-BASED FIBER OPTIC TECHNOLOGY

The MeBioS division of the Biosystems Department at KU Leuven investigates the interaction between biological systems and physical processes. The focus of the fundamental research in MeBioS is on the supradisciplinary field of bionanotechnology, i.e. the technology of biological systems at the nanometer scale. The Biosensors group within the division was founded in 2005 and is headed by prof. Jeroen Lammertyn. The group currently counts 6 postdocs, 23 PhD students and 3 lab technicians. Its fundamental research activities focus on the development of novel bio-molecular detection concepts and miniaturized analysis systems. The applications span a broad range of sectors including food (e.g. pathogen detection and allergenicity screening) and medical diagnostics (e.g. cancer, diabetes, infectious diseases and neurodegenerative diseases). The Biosensors group closely follows the emerging field of biosensing and is active in the following domains (1) bio-assay development (e.g. aptamers, biofunctionalized nanomaterials), (2) optical sensors (e.g. fiber optic SPR sensors) and (3) microfluidics (e.g. lab-on-a-chip technology).
