Over het Carrièresymposium

De opening van de Carrièremaand: een symposium gericht op arbeidsmarktoriëntatie! Tijdens het symposium zullen er parallelle lezingen zijn gericht op Informatica/Informatiekunde (Turing Track), Wiskunde (Euler Track) en Natuurkunde (Newton Track). Je bent natuurlijk ook welkom bij een lezing van een andere studie. Het programma van dit jaar is hieronder te zien. Dit jaar zal het symposium weer online via Microsoft Teams plaatsvinden.

Energy21 Energy21 is an energy expert and offers consultancy and IT-services with a focus on the B2B market. We know everything about (energy) market processes thanks to our track record and very diversified client portfolio. As our target audience are the larger market players (both demand and supply), you are probably not familiar with us (think Vattenfall, Eneco or BASF and USG e.g.). Nevertheless, theres a big chance your energy consumption runs through our system. The energy market faces significant challenges due to the energy transition and the ambitious climate goals. How does this work in real life? The technology is already there, it is now a matter to apply it in the right way. Alex Trijselaar, practice lead for the energy intensive industry, and Tom Rigter, energy consultant, will elaborate on our daily operations. Want to know a little bit more of how we onboard new colleagues? Check out our blogpost digital onboarding.

Jane Street Jane Street is a quantitative trading firm with a unique focus on technology and collaborative problem solving. Our trading is based on our own proprietary models and on our busiest days, we engage in over a million trades. With people and offices in New York, London, Hong Kong and Amsterdam, Jane Street is a trading firm that operates around the clock and around the globe, trading a wide range of financial products, including: ETFs, Equities, Futures, Commodities, Options, Bonds and Currencies. Founded in 2000, Jane Street employs over 1000 people. Technology is at the core of how we approach trading, and we consider ourselves as much a technology company as a trading firm. We use OCaml (a statically typed functional programming language) as our primary development language. Our key to success isn’t brand recognition, but people. Our growth comes from hiring and training amazing people and giving them the tools they need to innovate. The environment at Jane Street is open, informal, intellectual and fun. You can wear a t-shirt and jeans to the office every day, the kitchen is stocked full of complimentary food, there’s a gym and a games room onsite, and discussions are always lively. Teaching and learning are central activities at Jane Street through classes, mentoring and discussion.

AIVD In deze voordracht zullen we aan de hand van een casus laten zien wat voor aspecten, zowel technisch als juridisch, er komen kijken bij een cyberonderzoek zoals dat wordt uitgevoerd bij de AIVD en MIVD. In deze casus laten we zien hoe we verder komen in een onderzoek door onder andere de inzet van speciale bevoegdheden zoals vastgelegd in de WIV 2017. Binnen zo'n onderzoek is de Joint Sigint Cyber Unit (JSCU) verantwoordelijk voor de verwerving en verwerking van technische data die nodig is voor het onderzoek. De JSCU is een technische unit waarin medewerkers van beide diensten werkzaam zijn in gezamenlijke teams. We zullen ook ingaan op het soort expertise waarvan we gebruik maken binnen de JSCU waardoor je hopelijk een beter beeld krijgt van de mogelijkheden om bij één van de diensten te gaan werken na je studie. De spreker heeft zelf een PhD in Natuurkunde.

CWI Mathematics has existed for centuries. What many people do not realize that today Mathematics is everywhere and is a key driver for many technological innovations, like computers, smartphones, apps, navigation systems, online payment systems, communication networks, healthcare, online games and much more cool stuff. A famous Professor once said: “Mathematics is like oxygen: you do not see it, and you will inevitably miss it when it is no longer there”. Based on three decades years on experience with Mathematics in practice, I will give an overview of a range great projects that I have been involved in for companies and governments in which knowledge of Mathematics made the difference. These examples show that Mathematics is indeed “alive and kicking”

AMOLF Optical metasurfaces are materials with a nanostructured surface geometry that are designed to interact with light in special ways. By tailoring the scattering and interference of light from these patterned layers, it becomes possible to control and manipulate light beams in ways that are impossible with conventional materials. I will demonstrate how Si metasurfaces can be used to perform mathematical operations on optical input fields, demonstrating both differentiation and integration. Such small optical circuits can form the building elements of optical computers that perform calculations at the speed of light with very low energy consumption. Interestingly, very similarly shaped geometries can also be used to optimize the scattering and trapping of light in solar cells. I will demonstrate a novel design of a metasurface backcontact applied to a GaInP/GaAs/Si multijunction solar cell and show how it leads to an ultrahigh solar energy conversion efficiency of 33%. The work is carried out at the NWO-Institute AMOLF, the national institute for physics of functional complex matter, in Science Park Amsterdam, together with international collaborators. AMOLF carries out a research program in nanophotovoltaics, nanophotonics, metamaterials and biophysics. The research is caried out by about 80 PhD students and postdocs and about 25 masters students from different universities in the Netherlands and abroad. PhD students that graduate at AMOLF find new jobs of many different kinds: in academia, and companies, government and in consulting. Albert Polman studied physics at Utrecht University. He performed his PhD at AMOLF, worked as a postdoc at AT&T Bell Laboratories (USA), and now is group leader and program director at AMOLF. He is professor of photonic materials at the University of Amsterdam. His group’s website is www.erbium.nl. AMOLF’s website is www.amolf.nl.

CERN CERN is one of the largest international laboratories in the world, aimed at fundamental physics research. Home to the largest particle accelerator ever built, physicists from all around come together to study the four forces of nature, the matter that universe is made of and where it all originates from. Nikkie Deelen, who is originally a particle physicist, will talk about her current job at CERN that focuses on R&D for detector magnets for future accelerators. These gigantic superconducting magnets are used to bend particle trajectories in CERN's experiments, which allows for measuring the momentum and eventually particle identification. One problem with detector magnets is always finding a balance between the amount of material in the detector volume and the strength of the magnetic field. This talk will start with a general introduction on where and why detector magnets are needed and then go into how to design and build them in a nutshell.
