Master Scholarships in Complex Systems Science, Erasmus Mundus, Europe

University of Warwick, Ecole Polytechnique (Paris), Chalmers University and University of Gothenburg are pleased to announce a new joint Masters Programme in “Complex Systems Science”

* First entry: Sept 2010
* Course Duration: 2 years
* Location: each student spends time in at least two of Warwick, Paris, Gothenburg
* Erasmus Mundus Scholarships available, for both EU and “third country” (overseas) students.
* Website: www.warwick.ac.uk/go/cssm

A “complex system” comprises many interacting components leading to multiple levels of collective structure and organization. Examples include natural systems ranging from bio-molecules and living cells to human social systems and the ecosphere, as well as sophisticated artificial systems such as the Internet, power grid or any large-scale distributed software system. It is a key challenge for our society to better understand, adapt, design and control such systems.

Our Masters degree teaches the tools to analyse complex systems and to understand their emergent behaviour. Students are offered a variety of research project opportunities to develop experience applying this to fresh challenges from the real world and within academic research.

We offer an exceptional cross-disciplinary environment and experience, with the programme based around three leading research centres in Complex Systems, associated with the Universities of Warwick (UK), Ecole Polytechnique (de Paris, France), and Chalmers/Gothenburg (Sweden). The European Complex Systems Society is an associated partner

The programme runs over two years (120 ECTS); it is half taught and half by research and leads to a JOINT (or double) Masters degree of University of Warwick, Ecole Polytechnique, Chalmers University (Gothenburg) and the University of Gothenburg. Students will be required to spend extended time in at least two centres and to join in events/collaborations across all three. Admissions are centralised (students must apply through Warwick, the coordinating node) and successful candidates will start in September at the Centre whose initial teaching provides the best bridge between their undergraduate background and the programme as a whole. All students will have mobility opportunities after six months, and earlier for some well prepared students.

Applicants should be competent in mathematics and/or mathematical modelling, to the level of a mathematically based undergraduate degree (including but not restricted to sciences and engineering). That degree also needs to be of high standard. We are happy to consider equivalent professional experience.

Instruction will generally be available in English, in which all students will be required to have some competence. Local language support will be available at the respective nodes to help students integrate. Each Centre has staff speaking a wide range of European languages and will allocate each student a mentor with some language in common.

As the title implies, EMSEP has two main focuses: (1) promotion of healthy habits and overall lifestyle via regular engagement in various forms of physical activity; and (2) psychological support for athletes. The areas covered by EMSEP include, but are not limited to, motivation, performance, behaviour regulation, cognition, (post)career planning for athletes, identity, counselling and preventive interventions within sport and exercise contexts.

Career opportunities
The EMSEP programme prepares students for a research and/or professional career in Sport and Exercise Psychology through a combination of coursework, independent study, internship, and an extensive hands-on research experience. After successful completion of the programme, graduates will be awarded a double degree.

Kuliah Sambil Bekerja

Kuliah sambil bekerja, banyak hal positif yang dapat diperoleh, di samping tidak sedikit pula perjuangan yang harus dilakukan. Kuliah memang cukup menyita waktu, apalagi pada awal-awal musim perkuliahan, banyak hal mengenai universitas yang baru kita masuki harus kita ketahui, mulai dari keadaan kampus sampai peraturan-peraturan yang berhubungan langsung dengan kegiatan perkuliahan. Hal ini tentunya diperlukan untuk mendukung kelancaran kegiatan perkuliahan itu sendiri, semakin kita mengenal sesuatu hal, maka kita akan semakin menikmati hal tersebut, agaknya istilah “tak kenal maka tak sayang" memang sesuai

Pada tingkat pertama perkuliahan, biasanya bobot SKS (Sistem Kredit Semester) disamaratakan bagi tiap mahasiswa baru, mungkin pihak universitas mempertimbangkan memberlakukan ini karena asumsi pada awal-awal perkuliahan, kegiatan mahasiswa hanya kuliah, mereka belum bekerja. Sesudah mahasiswa memasuki tingkat yang agak tinggi, mungkin tingkat dua atau tiga ataupun empat, umumnya pemberian jatah SKS disesuaikan dengan hak dan keinginan mahasiswa sendiri. Hak disini berdasarkan Indeks Prestasi Semester mahasiswa (IPS) pada semester sebelumnya, semakin tinggi IPS, maka hak SKS yang dapat semakin tinggi. Sedangkan mengenai keinginan, hal ini tentu saja disesuaikan dengan kegiatan mahasiswa sendiri, dan biasanya pada tingkat perkuliahan ini mahasiswa telah mulai bekerja.

Umumnya mahasiswa yang bekerja pada saat kuliah merupakan mahasiswa yang mengambil disiplin ilmu yang lebih popular, misalnya ilmu Desain, ilmu Tehnik Informasi, ilmu Sastra dan lain-lain. Mereka biasanya bekerja sebagai creative designer, programmer, guru pada tempat kursus ataupun staf administrasi paruh waktu, ataupun bisa saja sebagai pekerja waktu penuh, selama jadwal kuliah mereka bisa disesuaikan dengan waktu kerja. Ada pula mahasiswa yang memilih pekerjaan yang tidak berhubungan sama sekali dengan ilmu yang sedang mereka pelajari di universitas, biasanya berupa pekerjaan paruh waktu, misalnya sebagai penulis.

Banyak hal positif yang bisa diperoleh dengan bekerja. Di samping kita bisa mempunyai penghasilan sendiri, pengalaman yang kita dapatkan saat bekerja sangat bermanfaat untuk mendukung perkuliahan itu sendiri. Setidaknya kita dapat merasakan langsung semua hal yang berhubungan dengan dunia kerja yang sesungguhnya, yang selama ini hanya kita tahu dari buku dan sharing dari dosen. Dengan pengetahuan dan pengalaman langsung, akan kita akan lebih mudah memahami isi perkuliahan tersebut. Karena pada dasarnya, isi perkuliahan memang menjelaskan istilah-istilah dan hal-hal yang terjadi dan berhubungan erat dengan dunia kerja. Keuntungan lain dari bekerja pada saat kuliah, mahasiswa dapat menggunakan perusahaan tempat mereka bekerja sebagai obyek studi kasus bagi tugas-tugas, diskusi ataupun makalah kuliahnya. Hal ini akan memberi banyak kemudahan bagi mahasiswa, karena mereka sudah mengenai dengan baik perusahaan tersebut dan pengurusan surat izin melakukan penelitian akan jauh lebih mudah juga. Mahasiswa juga dapat menggunakan fasilitas yang diberikan perusahaan, misalnya komputer atau bahkan layanan internet, untuk kepentingan perkuliahan dan tentu saja ini dilakukan di luar jam kerja.

Di samping hal-hal bermanfaat yang dapat kita peroleh dengan bekerja pada saat kuliah, tentu saja ada perjuangan-perjuangan yang harus kita lakukan, mulai dari merelakan berkurangnya waktu bermain dan berkumpul dengan teman untuk diganti dengan bekerja, sampai menbagi pikiran dan tenaga untuk kepentingan tugas di kantor. Di samping itu juga, kita harus mampu beradaptasi dengan orang-orang dalam lingkungan kerja, yang umumnya lebih dewasa dalam berpikir dan sangat menuntut tanggung jawab penuh kita dalam menyelesaikan tugas. Belum lagi, jika saat ujian kuliah tiba, kita harus menjadi lebih rajin dan ekstra sehat agar bisa mempersiapkan diri.

Dari segi besarnya gaji yang diberikan, biasanya perusahaan sudah mempunyai standar khusus bagi pekerjanya yang masih kuliah. Dan memang gaji yang diberikan lebih rendah daripada pekerja yang telah menyandang gelar sarjana. Ini wajar adanya, karena asumsinya, pekerja yang telah mempunyai gelar pasti mempunyai ilmu yang lebih tinggi daripada mereka yang masih kuliah. Perusahaan biasanya juga mau memberikan keringanan bagi pekerja yang masih kuliah, keringanan ini dalam hal waktu kerja, misalnya pada saat pekerja harus mengikuti ujian perkuliahan atau perkuliahan itu sendiri, maka perusahaan masih mengizinkan untuk pulang lebih awal, tapi biasanya dengan kompensasi si pekerja harus datang lebih awal.

Beberapa universitas sudah mulai juga menjadikan dirinya sebagai “jembatan" antara mahasiswanya dengan dunia kerja, ini merupakan kabar gembira bagi kita para mahasiswa. Mereka bekerjasama dengan perusahaan-perusahaan mitra kerjanya mengadakan job fair (pameran kerja) bagi mahasiswanya. Job fair ini bertujuan untuk menjaring mahasiswa menjadi calon pekerjanya. Biasanya perusahaan yang menyelenggarakan job fair ini, memang mencari pekerja paruh waktu atau waktu penuh yang belum berpengalaman, dan mereka mensyaratkan calon-calonnya sebagai mahasiswa pada tingkat akhir perkuliahan atau tingkat menengah (tingkat dua atau tiga). Melalui media job fair inilah, mahasiswa perpeluang lebih besar mendapatkan pekerjaan, dibandingkan jika mereka mencari pekerjaan dari iklan-iklan lowongan di media cetak atau media elektronik. Dan yang lebih menyenangkan, biasanya perusahaan penyelenggara job fair ini datang langsung dalam perekrutannya ke universitas di mana mereka menyelenggaran job fair tersebut. Jadi pada tahap awal proses perekrutan ( biasanya tahap tes dan wawancara pertama ), mahasiswa tidak perlu mendatangi langsung perusahaan tersebut, ini pasti sangat memudahkan mahasiswa. Dalam sebuah job fair, karena umumnya cukup banyak perusahaan yang berpartisipasi, maka cukup beragam pula posisi yang ditawarkan bagi calon pekerjanya. Dokumen-dokumen yang mereka minta umumnya standar, seperti surat Lamaran, Curriculum Vitae (CV) dan sertifikat-sertifikat jika ada.

Persiapan-persiapan yang diperlukan jika mahasiswa berencana untuk bekerja adalah, yang pertama, mahasiswa harus mengatur jadwal kuliahnnya mengikuti standar waktu kerja perusahaan pada umumnya, ini jika mahasiswa ingin bekerja waktu penuh. Aturlah pengambilan mata kuliah yang waktu kuliahnya tidak berbentrokan dengan jam kerja kantor, biasanya ini diantisipasi dengan perpindahan waktu kuliah yang awalnya pada pagi hari ke malam hari, khususnya pada hari kerja (senin sampai jum’at) dan tetap di pagi hari pada hari sabtu. Perpindahan waktu kuliah memang hanya bisa dilakukan hanya pada saat pergantian semester dan dengan catatan juga, universitas membuka kelas pada malam hari. Sebagai contoh, jika kita sedang berada pada semester empat, dan kita berencana akan bekerja, maka untuk pekerjaan waktu penuh, setidaknya baru bisa dilakukan pada semester selanjutnya, yaitu semester lima. Jadi pada saat pengisian jadwal, untuk semeter lima, kita lakukan pengaturan dan perpindahan waktu kuliah tersebut. Untuk pekerjaan paruh waktu, maka mahasiswa tidak perlu mengubah jadwal kuliahnya, perusahaan yang akan menyesuaikan. Setelah jadwal kuliah disesuaikan, langkah kedua, mulailah mencari pekerjaan. Media yang bisa kita pakai untuk mencari pekerjaan, misalnya media job fair seperti dijelaskan di atas, melalui media cetak, media elektronik atau kita juga bisa berpartisipasi dalam internal mailing list. Intenal mailing list biasanya dibuat untuk menyatukan sekolompok orang pada lingkup satu institusi yang mempunyai kesamaan-kesamaan, mulai dari mahasiswa yang sama jurusannya sampai mahasiswa yang sama hobinya. Melalui mailing list, informasi disebarluaskan ke masing-masing anggotanya, mulai dari informasi mengenai mata kuliah, hobi sampai lowongan pekerjaan. Sebaiknya carilah pekerjaan yang sesuai dengan keinginan dan ilmu yang dimiliki. Dalam membuat surat lamaran, katakanlah apa adanya mengenai status kita yang masih kuliah dan pada saat wawancara, ungkapkanlah mengenai waktu perkuliahan. Ini akan mempengaruhi kebijakan perusahaan dalam hal peringanan jam kerja.

Memang sedikit agak melelahkan kuliah sambil bekerja, tapi apa yang akan kita dapatkan jauh melebihi perjuangan yang kita lakukan. Pada awalnya memang terasa agak berat, tapi setelah beberapa waktu kita akan terbiasa. Tapi ingat selalu, kuliah harus tetap menjadi prioritas utama, jadi selamat berjuang untuk mencari dunia lain. And keep enjoy your self.

PhD Studentship in Modelling the Effect of The Chemical Matrix-CNT Interactions on The Composite Electrical Properties, Portugal

Marie Curie Initial Training Network CONTACT(FP7-PEOPLE-ITN-2008-238363) for the tailored supply-chain development of CNT-filled composites with improved mechanical and electrical properties.

Recruiting organisation

I3N – Institute for Nanostructures, Nanomodelling and Nanofabrication, University of Minho, Portugal

Subproject title

Modelling the effect of the chemical matrix-CNT interactions on the composite electrical properties

Starting date: 4th January 2011

Background information

Marie Curie Initial Training Networks (ITNs) are joint research and training projects funded by the European Commission. Funding is provided for researchers from both inside and outside Europe to carry out individual project work in a European country other than their own.

The “CONTACT” ITN is made up of 10 partners (coordinated by the Fraunhofer ICT in Germany), and will recruit a total of 15 postgraduates and 3 post docs for project work lasting for 1-3 years. The aim of the project is the tailored industrial supply-chain development of CNT-filled polymer composites with improved mechanical and electrical properties. Project work in the network will include the optimisation of CNT synthesis and functionalisation, dispersion in thermoplastics and thermosets, the processing of CNT compounds, modelling, characterisation and application.

Subproject description:

This subproject will be carried out by one early-stage researcher at I3N over a period of 28 months.

The aim of this project is two-fold:

- to use molecular dynamics/quantum mechanics to calculate the effect of doping, functionalization and covalent bonding with various polymers affects the electrical properties of individual CNTs;

- to develop mesoscopic models which incorporate this atomic-level information and to use these models to investigate how the electrical response of composite materials depends on CNT dispersion.

This project will be carried out in parallel with other research projects in the same programme, e.g. “CNT functionalization” and “CNT modification”, providing the necessary atomic-scale information to interpret experimental results and to define the most promising

experiments to be performed.

This project will involve the following steps:

1. Validating the quantum mechanics/molecular dynamics code to be used to investigate the atomic and molecular scale properties of CNTs. To do so we will investigate the electrical properties of defect-free CNTs of different length, chirality and radius and will compare our results with existing experimental and theoretical results.

2. Determining how structural defects, doping, functionalization and covalent bonding with semiconducting or insulating polymers affects the electrical properties (charge distribution, electron affinity, ionization energy, electrical conductivity) of individual

CNTs.

3. Writing a computer code to develop a mesoscopic model of polymer-CNT composite that incorporates the spatial distribution of CNTs and the relevant atomic-level information obtained in the previous steps and systematic investigation of how the electrical properties of the composite are affected by CNT dispersion, concentration, orientation and type of matrix polymer.

Requirements:

Qualifications / experience:

- Early-stage researcher (in the first four years (full-time equivalent) of his/her research career, measured from the date when he/she obtained the degree which would formally entitle him/her to embark on a doctorate)

- Degree in Chemistry, Physics, Material Science, Polymer Science or equivalent

Mobility:

- The applicant can be of any nationality except Portuguese

- The applicant must not have resided or carried out his/her main activity (work, studies etc.) in Portugal for more than 12 months in the past three years.

The main objective is creating an educational programme that provides the required knowledge for a professional fire safety engineer in a Performance Based Design environment. Besides interuniversity cooperation, student mobility in Europe is one of the main points of interest of the overall programme. The mobility structure, with possible change in study location after each semester, gives the students the opportunity to gain from the strengths and expertise of each of the three universities.

The 2-year course consists of four semesters of 30 ECTS-credits each. The mobility structure, with possible change in study location after each semester, gives the students the opportunity to gain from the strengths and expertise of each of the three universities.

The classes in the first semester, covering basic topics in Fire Safety Engineering (FSE), can be attended in Ghent or Edinburgh. All students spend the second semester in Lund, where emphasis lies on enclosure fire dynamics, risk analysis and human behaviour. In the third semester, classes are again taught in Ghent (for general FSE) or Edinburgh (with focus on structural engineering in the context of FSE). The fourth semester is devoted to the Master’s thesis, hosted by one or more of the three institutes.

Non-European students are to be considered as “full scholarships” covering all necessary costs of the student during his/her study period in Europe. Over 2 years, the total amount of the scholarship is € 48,000. This amount of € 48,000 includes a fixed contribution of €8,000 to travel and installation, a contribution to the EMMC participation costs of € 8,000 per year (covering the annual tuition fees), and monthly installments of € 1,000 per month.

European students is considered as a “financial contribution”. Over 2 years, the total amount of the scholarship is € 20,000. This amount of € 20,000 includes a contribution to the EMMC participation costs of € 4,000 per year (covering the annual tuition fees), and monthly installments of € 500 per month.

The minimum graduate admission requirements are:
