Research priority area Sustainable Chemistry boosts postdocs’ careers

Universiteit Ams

In today’s volatile career climate, PhD chemists get all too often stuck in a vicious circle. On one hand, they are expected to specialise more, requiring more post-dcotoral experience. On the other hand, academic positions and permanent industrial positions are scarce, leading to tough competition and numerous short-term 'postdoc' appointments, with meagre career perspectives. Mentoring and network-building To address this problem, the research priority area (RPA) Sustainable Chemistry is placing extra emphasis not only on research excellenc... Read More »

Choosing a mate: It’s the brain, not the nose, that knows

Universiteit Ams

Smelling a mate Female moths produce a sex pheromone, a different blend of chemicals for each species, which attracts males from a distance. Males detect these chemicals with exquisitely sensitive hair-like structures in the antenna. These hairs contain specialised neurons: nerve cells that express pheromone receptors that are activated when they bind to individual pheromone components. Different species have different pheromone receptors, and so the ability to most accurately smell females of the same species prevents attraction to other fema... Read More »
