English legal methodology in the 21st century from the perspective of German legal methodology.The PhD will examine English legal methodology and terminology against the comparative background of the German approach. The PhD will start from the premise that the genuinely English approach to legal methodology, both in academia and in practice, has not changed significantly since Gustav Radbruch’s research in 1947, despite the continental influence in EU law and the need to adapt to a more continental approach to comply with EU parameters. It will seek to verify or falsify this premise by analysing the writings of academics as well as the case law and legislation to find out whether the traditional approach is still prominent or whether a shift to conceptualisation as a first step to the “elegance of the clear contour” (Radbruch) and ultimately codification is likely to happen anytime soon.

Part of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), CEH is the UK’s centre of excellence for research in the terrestrial and freshwater environmental sciences. This exciting research opportunity will allow the successful incumbent to work towards gaining a PhD by investigating the role of metal binding protein in nanotoxicology using a laboratory model organism within the framework of the Nanoparticle Training of Experts in Safety (NanoTOES) project. The PhD project will be collaborative with the Department of Materials Science, University of Oxford, who will ultimately award the doctorate subject to thesis completion and viva.

The NanoTOES project is a Marie Curie Initial Training Network focussed on research to assess the health and environmental impacts of nanotechnology products. The PhD project that CEH/University of Oxford will host will determine toxicity for a range of metal and metal oxide based synthetic nanoparticles. The research will focus in particular on toxic effects on the biochemistry (gene expression, protein biology, cell biology) and behavioural and population ecology of the model nematode Caenorhabditis elegans.

A new scholarship for international students has been established at Chalmers University of Technology. Ericsson AB will fully support the tuition fee for two international students at the master’s programme Communication Engineering for the autumn 2011 intake.

“We are very happy that Ericsson wants to support the programme with scholarships. Our education in communication engineering is world class and the fact that Ericsson will provide its support confirms this”, says Gunilla Walther, Department of Signals and systems.

“We have a very good experience with graduates from this programme”, says Dag Jungenfelt, Head of Product Development Unit Microwave Networks at Ericsson. “To ensure that we can continue to meet the future needs in knowledge and skills, we are proud to be part of the establishment of this scholarship.”

A PhD scholarship in Biomechanics/Biorobotics has been announced under the EU-FP7 program at Bielefeld University, Germany.

In the EU-funded FP7-Project EMICAB (Embodied Motion Intelligence for Cognitive, Autonomous Robots), the University of Bielefeld (Germany) invites applications for a part-time position as research assistant (PhD student) for the duration of three years. The positions are remunerated 50% of E13 (according to TV-L West, German public service). The salary scale typically ranges between 19200 and 22400 Eur p.a., depending on work experience.

The positions on offer are embedded into an excellent interdisciplinary environment with intensive contacts to various facilities and workgroups of Bielefeld University. In particular, this includes the Center of Excellence in Cognitive Interaction Technology, CITEC. The EU-project (www.emicab.eu) as a whole is formed by the Biomechatronics lab and the Neuroethology lab of Bielefeld University (coordinator), a Systems Engineering lab at the University of Catania, Italy, a Sensor Technology lab at the University of Southern Denmark in Sønderborg, and a Neurogenetics lab at the University of Mainz, Germany.

Cooperative Research Centre for Greenhouse Gas Technologies (CO2CRC)

The School of Chemical Engineering and School of Petroleum Engineering at the University of New South Wales has a significant research group headed by Prof. Dianne Wiley investigating the economics of capturing CO2 from industrial sources and injecting it into underground reservoirs in Australia. This research is part of the work of the Cooperative Research Centre for Greenhouse Gas Technologies (“CO2CRC”), which is a joint industry / Australian Government sponsored programme that brings together the work of research institutions, Government agencies and private companies in Australia and overseas.
