  • New online course on Python available (Dutch only)

    In deze cursus gaan cursisten werken met de programmeertaal Python, om te leren wetenschappelijke problemen uit de verschillende bètawetenschappen op te lossen. De cursus is bedoeld voor mensen die nog helemaal geen ervaring hebben met programmeren. Trouwens: het is ook heel leuk om de cursus met z’n tweeën te doen, dan kun je discussiëren over hoe je de problemen aanpakt.

    Het doel is dat je na de cursus zelf verder kunt leren, en waar nodig, je eigen programmaatjes gaat schrijven om je te helpen tijdens je studie, in het onderzoek of buiten de universiteit. De cursus bestaat uit vier modules en voor elke module kun je kiezen uit meerdere opties. Doe wat je leuk lijkt!

  • Call for coordinators for the NIAS-Lorentz Theme Group (NLTG) 2018/2019

    The NIAS-Lorentz Program *calls for coordinators for the NIAS-Lorentz Theme Group* (NLTG) 2018/2019: http://www.nias-lorentz.nl/program.html.

    The (extended) deadline for application with a pre-proposal is 15 March 2017.

    The NIAS-Lorentz Program is a collaboration established in 2006 by NIAS (Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences; Wassenaar) and the Lorentz Center (Workshop Center in the Sciences; Leiden).

    The NIAS-Lorentz Program promotes innovative interdisciplinary research that brings together perspectives from the Social Sciences and Humanities on the one hand and the Natural Sciences and Technologies on the other. This program gives special attention to topics of societal importance that require extensive collaboration across traditional scientific boundaries in order to progress. An NLTG can particularly benefit early/mid-career researchers who wish to explore and open a new interdisciplinary scientific field.

    For more information, see www.nias-lorentz.nl/program.html or contact Petry Kievit at .
