15 fully-funded PhD Positions on Domain-Specific Search (EU Marie Curie Action project)

I am hiring for project 6 and 7, addressing transparency and explainability in legal search.

Come do your PhD with me at Spinque in Utrecht, NL, on the topic of Professional Search:

Fully funded, with three secondments in Vienna (Allan Hanbury), Milan (Gabriella Pasi) and Tennessee (Diane Kelly).

See the Marie-Curie ITN DOSSIER website for 14 more cool projects, all over Europe, including two in Leiden with Suzan Verberne.

I enjoyed reading Microsoft Research/Github their work on code search (as IR task using LtR, elasticsearch as baseline). Highlight for me? Clear description of evaluation instructions and interface

@hiemstra works in Browser on Utwente Mastodon. Not in Tusky or Fedilab apps, not on other instances; but you then just read the Latex.

But is \(\textit{so cool}\) I'll have to patch too :-)

The high school children that are on strike for the climate now will be our future students. Let's give them the world -- and the campus -- they protested for.

Let's build, on campus, the state-of-the-art wind mills that use generators developed at the University of Twente. The superconductors developed by Marc Dhallé and colleagues replace the heavy magnets inside a generators of conventional wind mills. As a result, the weight and size of the new generator is significantly reduced while at the same time, it is capable of delivering the same output power. Another advantage is the minimal use of rare earth metals.!/2018/11/3

Let's put solar panels on every roof and turn everyday objects on campus into solar panels using luminescent solar concentrator (LSC) photovoltaic technologies that Angèle Reinders and colleagues experiment with. The typical material properties of LSCs -- low cost, colorful, bendable, and transparency -- offer a lot of design freedom.

Let's use the additional energy generated on campus to generate solar fuels. This involves the direct conversion of energy from sunlight into a usable fuel (in this case, hydrogen). Using only earth-abundant materials, Han Gardeniers, Jurriaan Huskens and colleagues developed the most efficient conversion method to date.!/2018/1/99

@hiemstra requires at least 10 followers - that, and your account should not have been moved, I think :donkey:

Mastodon U. Twente now has a profile directory at:

You can opt-in for the directory under "settings" -> "edit profile". Opting in will make it easy for fellow-students/employees/alumni to find your :mastodon: :utwente: profile.

Just heard that Prof. Paul Gellings died last month. He was the chair of my PhD committee. I knew him as a wise man, with a positive view of life.
