Internships at forensics

Dear members,

On the 9th of February we had a lunch colloquium about Forensic Biometrics given by Didier Meuwly. He announced that there are currently a few internships available. If you found the colloquium interesting and looking for an intership, then take a look at the following links:

If you have any questions, you can ask the symposium committee or Fernon.

 

Update: The links to the internships do not work anymore, however you can still find an alternate overview of offers.

Simon Stevin – Fokko-Jan Dijksterhuis

On October 7th the first lunch colloquium of this study year took place. Dr. Fokko-Jan Dijksterhuis was glad to give a talk on the scientist who introduced the Dutch word for mathematics “wiskunde” centuries ago. Fokko-Jan Dijksterhuis is one of Ockham’s honorary members and a specialist in the history of science. As a teacher within the science track of the Honours-programme, he brings ‘great scientists’, such as Newton or Darwin closer to his students and defines with them what a ‘great scientist’ should be like. During this lunch colloquium he gave an interesting talk about a scientist not known to everyone, the Dutch mathematician Simon Stevin, who greatly influenced history. Amongst other things, he developed the decimal system and even introduced new scientific vocabulary to the Dutch language. Moreover, a major science grant carries his name. With his enthusiasm Fokko-Jan was once again able to fascinate his audience by taking them on a journey back into the 16th century.
