Joint CSER and eScience programme for Energy Research open for pre-proposals

The Computational Sciences for Energy Research (CSER) programme and the Netherlands eScience Center Amsterdam join together in a new call for proposals for PhD projects. Deadline for submitting pre-proposals is May 30, 2017. The call JCER addresses the research challenges in the computational sciences for future energy. The research should focus on developing sustainable software tools and is aimed to the broad community of computational scientists performing energy research.

Applications have to connect to one or more of the energy-related themes within the top sectors Energy ('Gas', 'Bio-energie', 'Wind-op-zee', 'Smart grids', 'Zonne-energie', 'Energiebesparing Gebouwde Omgeving', and 'Energiebesparing in de Industrie') and Chemistry ('Nieuwe Chemische Innovaties' and 'Smart polymeric materials' and 'Procestechologie'). The topics should include computational geoscience, wind and solar energy, multiphase flows, computational chemistry and material sciences for energy research.


The budget available for the call is € 3.6 million. Funding is up to € 245,000. Applications can be submitted by permanent staff at Dutch universities and academic institutes. The deadline to submit a full proposal is August 31, 2017.


An information event will be organised on April 13, 2017 in Amsterdam by the eScience Center to allow all interested applicants to get acquainted with the approach and structure of the eScience Center, with the role of the eScience Research Engineers, and with the technologies being implemented and applied by the eScience Center.
