    Theo tôi thì học 322 mà mang cả hai con và cả chồng cùng sang là khá chật vật. Riêng tiền thuê nhà cho chừng đó người đã tốn ít nhất là 800 EUR/tháng tức là toàn bộ tiền học bổng 322 của chị. Giá thuê nhà ở Hà Lan: 700-800 căn hộ hai phòng. Muốn thuê nhà rẻ hơn cũng có nhưng rất khó kiếm vì người Hà Lan ko ở căn hộ nhiều mà chủ yếu ở các loại nhà có ít nhất 3 phòng ngủ.

    Ở HL nếu chị mang con và chồng sang thì chị được miễn giảm thuế thu nhập tuy nhiên vì chị nhận lương của chính phủ VN nên sẽ ko được hưởng lợi từ chính sách này. Tuy nhiên một số trường ở HL có chính sách hỗ trợ thêm cho sinh viên 322 tối đa 400EUR/tháng. Nhưng ko phải trường nào cũng có chính sách này, chị nên hỏi kỹ trường trước khi sang.

    Về bảo hiểm y tế thì sinh viên PhD bên này đều phải tự đóng mỗi tháng khoảng 70 EUR, ko rõ là sinh viên diện 322 thì chính phủ VN có đóng hộ hay ko? Chỉ chắc chắn một điều là chính phủ HL ko đóng bảo hiểm y tế cho 2 vợ chồng chị. Chỉ có 2 đứa trẻ, nếu còn nhỏ thì sẽ được hưởng chăm sóc y tế theo bảo hiểm của bố mẹ.

    Lưu ý một điều nữa là mặc dù lúc nào chính phủ HL cũng nói trẻ em được đi nhà trẻ miễn phí nhưng ko hoàn toàn đúng như vậy. Các nhà trẻ công nơi nhận trẻ miễn phí thường lúc nào cũng ko còn chỗ trống, kể cả đăng ký trước 1 năm. Do đó nhiều sinh viên VN phải gửi con ở những nhà trẻ tư với giá khoảng 250 EUR/tháng, mỗi tuần trẻ được ở trường 2 buổi. Muốn gửi cả tuần thì ko rõ giá bao nhiêu nhưng chắc chắn sẽ ko rẻ hơn.

    Anh cho em hỏi thêm là nếu mang vợ sang, thì tự động nó sẽ giảm thuế hay là mình phải làm đơn xin giảm thuế, và mình đăng kí ở đâu? Hay là em nên hỏi bà thư kí phụ trách hồ sơ của em ở Graduate School?

    Cám ơn a nhiều.

    Tốt nhất bạn nên hỏi mấy bà thư ký vì họ biết rõ phải làm gì. Ở đây có một số sinh viên VN đã trực tiếp hưởng lợi từ chính sách này nhưng ko rõ là họ làm như thế nào.

    Mang chồng, con đi làm PhD ở Hà Lan

    Cảm ơn tư vấn của bác thanh_lam.
    Vì đi Hà Lan thì có Giáo sư đã chấp nhận Ph.D Proposal rồi.
    Nhưng theo bác tư vấn thì có vẻ đi Hà Lan không ổn rồi. Tôi còn phương àn 2, sẽ quyết tâm đi ANh vậy.

    Two PhD students
    Department:
    SEN 1 Software Analysis and Transformation
    Hours on a weekly basis:
    38

    CWI is an internationally renowned research institute in mathematics and computer science, located in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The focus is on fundamental research problems, derived from societal needs. Research is carried out in 18 research themes. More information about these themes can be found on the website www.cwi.nl where you can also find the Annual Reports of the institute. A substantial part of this research is carried out in the framework of national or international programs.

    CWI maintains excellent relations with industry and the academic world, both in the Netherlands as well as abroad. After their research careers at CWI, an increasing number of young staff members find employment in these sectors, for example in spin-off companies that are based on research results from CWI. Of course, library and computing facilities are first-rate. CWI's non-scientific services to its personnel include career planning, training and courses, assistance in finding housing, and tailor-made solutions to problems that may occasionally arise.

    CWI has vacancies for two talented PhD candidates for research on Information Visualization applied to Software in the Escher project.

    Software dominates our modern civilization. However, as size, complexity, and lifetime of software in- crease, so does its cost. It is estimated that software maintenance exceeds 80% of the total evelopment costs. Of this, nearly half is spent in program understanding.

    Two main classes of instruments support program understanding. First, program analysis techniques extract a wealth of information from source code, dynamic program execution, and the development process itself, such as models, metrics, and proofs of correctness. Secondly, software visualization methods present this information in interactive ways to support the comprehension process using techniques such as graph layouts, diagrams, dense pixel displays, treemaps, glyphs, and timelines. However, a fundamental gap is identifiable between the two: software analysis and visualization are not integrated in ways that effectively and efficiently support the sense making, reasoning process, and hypothesis forming central to understanding. We argue that this gap is at the center of the limited adoption and success of software visualization methods and, arguably, of some more complex software
    analysis methods. For software visualization to make a true difference, it has to be centered on answering the questions of its stakeholders, rather than show the data emerging from program analyses. We cast software analysis and visualization in a new framework, inspired by the
    highly successful visual analytics field.

    Central to our approach is providing abstractions, methods and tools that enable the stakeholders
    to effectively and efficiently formulate their questions as directly and as easily as possible, and ways that translate these questions, abstracting away from the raw analysis data, into suitable combinations
    of analysis and visualization instruments.
    Level:
    Academic
    Competences:

    The PhD candidates are required to have at least a master degree in computer science.

    PhD Reliable controllers for a by wire vehicle

    The PhD project focuses on the development of reliable controllers for steer-by-wire and brake-by-wire systems. The controllers first have to be designed and tested using a vehicle simulation model and will be implemented on a real vehicle afterwards. Besides the demonstration of the separate by-wire components also the successful integration and added benefit of combining the various systems has to be shown. In addition, since the components will use the same network a careful analysis regarding time-delay and package drop-out is required.

    Requirements
    Candidates for this PhD position should have a MSc in Mechanical Engineering or Electrical Engineering –or a similar education- and should be familiar with modern control techniques and basics on vehicle dynamics.

    PhD Student in Science Communication

    Health, energy, the environment, infrastructures and mobility are today's major social issues. That's why TU Delft pays extra attention to developing solutions in these four domains through Delft Research Initiatives (DRI) that thematically combine science, technology and society. Science communication plays an important role in this societal embedding of science and technology, not only from a science and lay audience perspective, but also from a business-to-business perspective. However, an evidence-based, effective science communication policy and strategy is still lacking, specifically for DRI and generally for similar research consortia worldwide. Therefore, the aim of this PhD project is to develop an effective, manageable and affordable science communication decision aid, tailor-made for DRIs and for research consortia in general, to be used by science communication professionals and by scientists. The research is carried out in close relationship with science communication professionals and scientists and is based on methodologies obtained in Design-Based Research. The PhD student will work in an interdisciplinary field of science communication and science and technology studies. The project is intended to result in a PhD thesis.
    Description

    We are looking for an enthusiastic MSc graduate in science communication or a related field. The candidate has a background (BSc at least) in natural science and/or technology and has a proven interest in transdisciplinary research that combines humanities, science and technology. Preferably, the candidate is also interested in systems thinking, modelling and social mathematics, or at least is willing to cooperate in an interdisciplinary research group that combines these disciplines. Since the research is carried out in a team of science communication scientists, science communication professionals, scientists and stakeholders, the candidate should have an eye for accuracy and have excellent communication, teamwork and networking skills. Some practical experience in the domain of science communication is also preferable.
    Research Fields

    Two PhD students Bayesian machine learning for identifying synaptic gene networks (1,0 fte) ================================================

    VU University Amsterdam,
    Center for Neurogenomics and Cognitive Research (CNCR)

    Radboud University Nijmegen,
    Institute for Computing and Information Sciences (iCIS)

    Maximum Salary: EUR 2,612 gross/month
    Closing date: 1 March 2011
    http://www.nwo.nl/nwohome.nsf/pages/NWOP_8BWBKD


    Job description
    ===============

    You will be working on the NWO Complexity project SYNCOBE, which aims to identify synaptic gene networks in complex brain disorders. Brain disorders are one of the most pressing health problems in today?s western society. Despite the fact that most brain disorders are highly heritable it has been difficult to identify gene defects causing the disease. Most likely the expected complexity of these diseases, involving interactions between very many genes, hampered the identification of disease genes so far. In this project we want to improve standard methods for identification of disease genes using Bayesian statistics.

    One PhD student will focus on methods to characterize the gene networks that influence synaptic functioning. Synapses are small dynamic units in the brain of about 1 ?m3 in size, which are critical for information processing. Synaptic dysfunction is currently implicated in a wide range of neurological and psychiatric disorders, including neurodegenerative diseases, depression, and mental retardation.

    The second PhD student will apply Bayesian statistics to investigate whether genetic variation in the gene networks can predict brain disease. On the long run, this must pave the way for new rational therapeutic strategies, exploiting the predictive power of a probabilistic network description.


    Requirements
    ============

    You should meet the following requirements:

    A masters degree in computer science, mathematics, physics, bioinformatics or a related field, with a strong interest in (Bayesian) statistics/machine learning, genetics, or cellular (neuro)biology. A strong motivation to pursue a career in science, an interest in working as a team and the ability to work across disciplines are required.


    Organization
    ============

    The project is a collaboration between CNCR at the VU University in Amsterdam and iCIS at the Radboud University Nijmegen. Both are leading academic communities in the Netherlands. The first PhD student will be primarily based in Amsterdam, the second one in Nijmegen.

    Websites: http://www.cncr.nl and http://www.ru.nl/is/ml


    Conditions of employment
    ========================

    Employment: 1,0 fte
    Starting at ? 2,042 per month, the salary will increase to ? 2,612 per month in the fourth year.


    Additional conditions of employment
    ===================================

    You will be appointed as a PhD student for a period of four years. Your performance will be evaluated after 18 months. If the evaluation is positive, the contract will be extended by 2.5 years.

    PhD on the project Narrative Fan Practices at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences

    The project will analyze fan practices based on classic role-playing games, tabletop war-games and Massive Multiplayer Online Games (and LARP). These form persistent game-worlds, as they contain a changing and expanding game-world, game-play and game-structure as defined by Aarseth (2001). All three categories include popular games with rich narratives on which the fan practices are based. Recent research in games (Krzywinska 2006, Langer, Corneliussen & Rettberg, 2008) has focused on examining the game-world as a complete virtual world. We seek to expand on this body of work by performing a relational text analysis on the corpus of fan practices based on persistent game-worlds to analyze how these practices relate to the source text.

    This project will offer valuable insight in the cultural participation of a new generation. While there are complaints concerning the lack of literacy and knowledge of cultural heritage among the youth, fans are actively creating videos, blogs and art, to name a few, regarding their interests. However, some critical questions can be raised here. Are fans actually developing their own literacy? Can we even call this literacy if they are only focused on their favourite game? And are they then taking into account the established canons, are they rather creating their own canons or ignoring canons altogether? The intermedial relations of the narrative fan practices will provide an answer to these questions.

    Persistent game-worlds offer an environment not only for narrative exploration, yet also for social interaction and community building on which the fan products are based. How does this community influence the fan products? This project will add to recent research on games by examining the culture of the player and specifically the narrative fan practices they engage in.

    The final choice of these the games and the fan practices investigated will be postponed until the precise background of the PhD-candidate is known.

    The PhD-candidate will be enrolled in one of the Netherlands Graduate Research Schools, and supervised by Prof. Dr. Sally Wyatt (Maastricht University) and Dr. Karin Wenz (Maastricht University). The PhD student will be based at Maastricht University.

    Requirements

    Qualifications:
    We are looking for a prospective PhD candidate with:

    Background in Science and Technology Studies (STS), or Game Studies, or Media Studies.
    A Masters degree in Science and Technology Studies, or Game Studies, or Media Studies. Preference is given to candidates who have completed a 2-year Research MA program
    Experience in conducting (virtual) ethnographic research (including doing qualitative interviews) on issues concerning games and/or online communities
    Affinity with the history of computers/media
    Interest in (digital) games
    Strong analytical capacity
    Fluency in spoken English and excellent writing skills in English. Knowledge of Dutch and German is desirable, but not a precondition for the project
    Willingness and proven ability to work in a team, and to execute a research project in concordance with the two other subprojects in the NWO programme Narrative Fan Practices and a third affiliated project on music fans.

    Open Ph.D. student position on
    "Cross-layer design space exploration for energy-aware MP-SoC Design"
    at the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Computer Systems Architecture group at the University of Amsterdam has
    an opening for a Ph.D. student in the area of system-level (embedded) system
    architecture design. More specifically, the Ph.D. student will be involved
    in the "CRoss-layer design space Exploration for Energy-aware mp-soc Design"
    (CREED) project which is funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific
    Research (NWO). The CREED project, which is a collaboration with Leiden
    University, aims at studying highly automated and accurate system-level design
    techniques for the energy-aware design of Multi-Processor System-on-Chip
    (MP-SoC) architectures. Existing research efforts to introduce system-level
    power/energy models in MP-SoC design frameworks have been primarily
    performed in isolation. That is, the power/energy models have not been linked
    with any system-level synthesis methodology, techniques, and tools.
    Consequently, the trustworthiness of these models is not very high. Our research
    will investigate how to tightly couple system-level power/energy modeling with
    system-level synthesis techniques in order to significantly improve the
    trustworthiness of system-level power/energy models and to quickly explore
    and design energy-efficient MP-SoCs. The technology that will result from this
    project aims at guaranteeing energy-optimal MP-SoC design, given a design
    methodology in which MP-SoCs are constructed from a library of pre-determined
    and pre-verified IP components (containing processor elements, memory
    elements, network elements, etc.).

    Tasks: The appointee will perform research on and development of system-level
    power models, dynamic model calibration, and steering of the design
    space exploration process with measurements from synthesized prototypes.

    Requirements: * M.Sc. in computer science, computer engineering, or
    electrical engineering
    * Decent knowledge of computer architecture
    * Preferably some expertise in the fields of performance
    and power analysis by means of analytical techniques
    and/or simulation
    * Candidate should be able to work in an international
    research team
    * Fluency in oral and written English is required

    PhD position community tagging

    The challenge
    In engineering projects, like building a highway, several interest groups must be involved and the aim is to achieve a good consensus between the varies interest groups and get a feasible solution. This consensus process is based on discussing various design alternatives often sketched in a spatial representation (e.g. a map). During this process several alternatives are discussed, modified, rejected and adjusted over time. To keep the spatial representation readable, separate temporal tendencies requires to aggregate contributions provided by the interest groups according to topic, space and time dimension.

    In this PhD project a framework will be developed to access tagged information in a temporal spatial environment on varying aggregation levels to enable the zooming in and out of a map. The challenge is that not much is known on which content will be available, on how the discussion will evolve and which scale the discussion will be performed. Further, the amount of information will make it necessary to pre-process the information to enable fast, web based access. Thus, the main challenge is to provide information in a fast and flexible way without making many assumptions on the information provided by the users and the way users are going to query this information. In this project the idea is to observe the query behaviour of users and self-organize the pre-aggregation levels. I.e., based on the observed user behaviour and a storage boundary the optimal pre-aggregation levels are determined in a streaming fashion minimizing the query response time.

    The research is part of a larger national research project on Spatiotemporal Datawarehouses for Travelers, (COMMIT P19). Validation of the research will be done in co-operation with the partners in the national project, using developed prototypes and fields trials in real-life settings.

    Our offer
    We offer a full-time PhD position in a dynamic and international environment. The duration of the contracts is four years. The gross salary will range from € 2.042,00 in the first year to € 2.612,00 per month in the fourth year. Additionally, the University of Twente provides excellent facilities for professional and personal development. In addition, we offer a holiday allowance (amounts to 8%) and an end-of-year bonus of 8.3% (which is approximately an extra month of salary) and a number of additional benefits. The labor agreements are in accordance with the CAO-NU for Dutch universities.

    Your profile
    We are looking for a candidate with a MSc. degree in computer science, databases, software engineering, information systems, mathematics (with a computer science specialization), or an equivalent degree. The work involves both theory and practice (implementing a research prototype and evaluation in an application context). The candidate must provide good communication skills, in writing as well as oral. Your main task will be to do research, but you will be given opportunities to acquire some teaching experience.

    PhD position geoprofile-driven social network enrichment
    Posted by: University of Twente

    Posted date: 2011-Apr-12

    Location: Netherlands

    Job description

    Internet technologies have created a fabric for information exchange far beyond the original intent to share information between humans. It has become a landscape where entities (people, sensors, devices, observatories) generate events bound in time and by location, carving out event trajectories within a domain of activity. We are especially interested in serving space/time understanding in social networks. The proper characterization of the where-and-when of social network member activity in geoprofiles allows the optimization of communication between the members. Collecting, archiving and annotating these trajectories forms the basis for knowledge extraction and management and for the organization of social communities by mutual interest.

    The PhD project aims to provide a toolset for building support systems for a networked community whose members display similar activities in similar locations and want to share content, valuations and experiences about those. Scientific challenges encountered include geo-referenced entity resolution, automatic data integration for content enrichment, information extraction, uncertainty management and data quality improvement, domain-of-activity specification, understanding user activities and routes (geoprofiling), and spatial data processing. An XML-based ETL-architecture will be developed that is based on a spatially enhanced XML DBMS and that includes a toolset to provide for development support with the above challenges when focusing on user-volunteered content. An important point of focus of this research project is to adequately address accuracy, completeness, ambiguity, conflicts, and trust in volunteered information, geo-referencing of not explicitly geo-referenced information, and matching this against known spatial information. Volunteered spatial-temporal data will come to us in large quantities as semi-structured reports describing local context. These volunteers may not have positioning devices, or the objects described may not have been collocated with such a device, and thus such data may lack precise geo-reference. In temporal and thematic details, the reports may be similarly imprecise. The objective of this PhD research project is to establish and validate a framework for geoprofile-driven content enrichment and data quality improvement on the basis of user-volunteered content and open spatial data services. The research is part of a larger national research project on Spatio-Temporal Data Warehousing. Validation of the framework is to be organized and executed in co-operation with the company EuroCottage (see http://www.eurocottage.com) in the domain of community building and holiday home location profiling. Co-operation with a concurrently running project on neogeography offers a second domain for validation: international development collaboration in agriculture.

    The research is part of a larger national research project on Spatiotemporal Datawarehouses for Travelers, (COMMIT P19). Validation of the research will be done in co-operation with the partners in the national project, using developed prototypes and fields trials in real-life settings.

    Requirements

    We are looking for a candidate with an MSc. degree in computer science, databases, geo-informatics, human media interaction, software engineering, or an equivalent degree. The work involves both theory and practice (implementing a research prototype and evaluation). Affinity with web technology, user-generated content, data mining, and/or geographic information systems (GIS) is desirable. The candidate must be a team player and have good communication skills, in writing as well as oral.

    Location: Netherlands

    Job description

    Supporting people in deploying a healthier life style as well as facilitating their ability to work more flexibly is considered important. Well-being applications at work and at home are expected to help people to continue contributing to society, the marketplace and the economy. Furthermore, these applications may help suppressing the rising costs of chronic disease and ill-health. Since health, work and well-being are closely linked, they need to be addressed together.

    The objective of this PhD project is to elicit and analyze the needs of people with respect to "well-working" supported by e-monitoring and e-coaching technology, and to develop criteria and architectural guidelines for employing such technology while fulfilling the identified needs. Special attention goes to the privacy of end-users, which is challenged by the use of pervasive monitoring technology.

    The research is part of a larger national research project on User-Centric Reasoning for Well-working (COMMIT P7). Validation of the research will be done in co-operation with the partners in the national project, using developed prototypes and field trials in real-life settings.

    PhD: Precision Contactless Transport System

    PhD: Precision Contactless Transport System
    Department/faculty: Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering
    Level: Master degree
    Working hours: 38 uur per week ()
    Contract: Four years
    Salary: €2042 to €2612 per month gross
    Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering
    The 3ME Faculty trains committed engineering students and PhD candidates in groundbreaking scientific research in the fields of mechanical, maritime and materials engineering. 3ME is the epitome of a dynamic, innovative faculty, with a European scope that contributes demonstrable economic and social benefits.


    The Department of Precision and Microsystems Engineering (PME) plays a key role in the Faculty of Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering (3mE). The department aims to strengthen the discipline of mechanical engineering by the introduction of physics principles that have traditionally been out of scope and by adding new, integrated technologies like Microsystem Technology. Our application scope clearly lies within the high-tech industry, and within this scope we are responsible for education in core mechanical engineering topics such as statics, dynamics, strength of materials, machine component and design techniques, as well as advanced numerical analysis methods, material characterisation and system (mechatronic) design.
    All our research is based on a love for and a thorough understanding of these core topics, but our pride lies in the continuous widening of the scope of mechanical engineering, ranging from large, complicated systems to the endless space of the small world.


    Job description
    Silicon wafers, solar cells and the glass sheets used in large-screen displays are high-cost, flexible and fragile products; mechanical contact during handling and transport adds to the risk of contamination, damage or breakage. To reduce the impact and number of contacts, new handling and transport concepts are being developed.
    In our labs, a highly innovative contactless concept has been developed in which the product is carried on a distributed thin air film. We can then propel and position the product with sub-micron accuracy and high control bandwidth. This research has led to the development of 3 lab-scale demonstrators (see
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCtXQ_58cz4).
    Scaling this lab-scale concept to production size requires a modular design. Sub-mm size control valves, air flow conduits and surface features need to be developed using 3D printing and multi-layer design.
    The PhD student will design different modules (e.g., for passive linear transport, actively controlled transport, position control) and develop the required components. Various manufacturing techniques need to be studied, compared and evaluated for their applicability in realising the small-scale machine components and for their scalability. The challenge is to reduce the size of each individual actuator while increasing the system’s overall size.


    Requirements
    This position requires an MSc degree in Mechanical or System and Control Engineering or a closely related field with outstanding results, along with a strong background in manufacturing methods and micro-fluidic systems. A combination of an academic mindset and practical engineering skills is also necessary, as are excellent writing and presentation skills in English.


    Conditions of employment
    TU Delft offers an attractive benefits package, including a flexible work week, free high-speed Internet access from home, and the option of assembling a customised compensation and benefits package (the 'IKA'). Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.



    Information and application
    For more information about this position, please contact Dr. Ron A.J. van Ostayen, phone: +31 (0)15-2781647, e-mail: R.A.J.vanOstayen@TUDelft.NL. To apply, please e-mail a detailed CV along with a letter of application by 30 April 2011 to Dr. van Ostayen, Application-3mE@tudelft.nl.
