PhD Fellowship Position in Extragalactic Astronomy at the Cosmic Dawn Center

Introduction
The Cosmic Dawn Center (DAWN) at the Section for Astrophysics and Atmospheric Physics at DTU Space, invites applications for a PhD Fellowship position starting in September 2021, or as soon as possible thereafter.  

DAWN is a center of excellence funded by the Danish National Research Foundation, and is located at the National Space Institute (DTU Space), Technical University of Denmark and the Niels Bohr Institute (NBI), University of Copenhagen.  The center brings together experts in all aspects of early Universe galaxy evolution and is deeply involved in major existing and upcoming surveys with HST, ALMA, Euclid and JWST, as well as cosmological and zoom-in simulations.  This call covers PhD positions based at DTU Space. 

DAWN has a number of associate members at major research institutes across Europe, North America, and Australia.  PhD students will have both an advisor in Copenhagen and an external advisor at one of our affiliated research institutes.  Students will also be expected to spend several months outside of Denmark, which could be at one of our affiliated institutes or another major research institute.  Our most recent PhD students have used this time at Cornell, Hawaii, and Oxford. For more information on the Center’s activities and researchers, please see www.cosmicdawn.dk.

Project descriptions and qualifications
Fellowships are intended for outstanding candidates with a background in astronomy, physics, or related technical disciplines who are interested in doing research within DAWN’s research themes: high-redshift galaxy evolution, epoch of re-ionization, first stars and galaxies, dust and ISM in the early universe and dark matter. 

The focus of the fellowship is likely to be on numerical simulations of the first galaxies as they formed and evolved during the cosmic dawn epoch.  One of the goals is to simulate the on-sky large-scale fluctuations in the line intensities of the first galaxies. Observing these fluctuations is called intensity mapping (IM), and is a new technique for studying the large-scale structure of the Universe. The IM signal depends both on the detailed astrophysical processes in the ISM within the galaxies as well as the underlying dark matter density.  The IM technique, therefore, provides important cosmological and astrophysical information, not readily obtained using other methods. The scope of the simulations may also be extended to understanding the formation of the first galaxies and clusters of galaxies. Such simulations will be undertaken in synergy with observations with ALMA and the JWST, as well as other major surveys such as COSMOS and the Cosmic Dawn Survey.

The position is available for three years for candidates already holding a MSc. The successful applicants are expected to: manage and carry out their own research project, write half-year progress reports, disseminate results at conferences and through scientific articles, undertake teaching duties (up to 15% of working time) and attend PhD courses (30 ECTS). Also, a mandatory research stay during a semester abroad is to be foreseen.

Candidates should have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree.

Approval and Enrolment
The scholarship for the PhD degree is subject to academic approval, and the candidate will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes at DTU. For information about our enrolment requirements and the general planning of the PhD study programme, please see the DTU PhD Guide.

Assessment
The successful candidate has outstanding analytical and problem-solving skills to become a committed researcher with a drive for excellence. Experience with python, machine learning and Bayesian statistics is an advantage but not required.

The assessment of the applicants will be made by the DTU Space and DAWN staff.

Postdoc in developing a platform for measuring production chemicals in produced water

The Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre (DHRTC – DTU), Technical University of Denmark (DTU), invites applicants for positions on investigations of optimization of treatment of produced water. DHRTC is established by the Danish Underground Consortium and DTU. As part of a national strategy on oil and gas, the research centre is an ambitious, targeted effort to improve various aspects of production and recovery of oil and gas from the Danish North Sea within three areas: reduced operating costs, increased extraction and reducing environmental impact. This position is within the new program on produced water management with the goal to reach zero harmful discharge from the DUC fields in the North Sea.

During oil production, approximately 3 times more water is produced. This water is, according to regulations, cleaned for most contaminants. The cleaning efficiency is impacted by the oil and water chemistry and the complex surface-active components added to facilitate production. Residual chemicals in the water have an important impact on the environmental impact. This project aims at quantifying indirectly specific target compounds to facilitate improved cleaning procedures.

Responsibilities and qualifications

Up to 2 PhD students in Computer Systems focusing on programmable memory systems

Published: 2021-12-01

Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong international standing. Our ultimate goal is to conduct education and research of the highest quality and relevance to make a long-term difference in society. Our most important assets are all the individuals whose curiosity and dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has over 45,000 students, more than 7,000 employees and a turnover of around SEK 7 billion.

The Department of Information Technology holds a leading position in research as well as teaching at all levels. The department has 300 employees, including 120 faculty, 110 PhD students, and 30 research groups. More than 4000 students are enrolled annually.

Duties/Description of project and subject area: The memory system of modern processors plays a critical role in delivering performance and efficiency. Today they have multiple sophisticated algorithms running to handle caches (what data to keep and replace), prefetchers (what data to proactively load), and coherency (how to track data), among other things. Currently these algorithms are hard coded in logic circuits, making them impossible to optimize for diverse applications.

This project aims to address these issues by adding programmability to the memory system components to allow them to be customized for each application. To accomplish this we will investigate what kind of programmability to add and where to add it, how to minimize its overhead through clever circuits and instructions, and how to adapt the behavior for each program. This requires hardware, architecture, software, and compilers to work together, and smart researchers to put it all together.

The result of this project will be that applications can describe how their data should best be handled and hardware can do so far more efficiently than today’s one-size-fits-all solutions.

The position is for four years of research, but will typically include 20% teaching extending the time to five years. We encourage our students to do industrial internships during their PhDs. You will be expected to teach in Swedish or English.

Requirements
Candidates should have a Master of Science in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or equivalent.

Excellent skills in spoken and written English are an absolute requirement.

Ultimately, pursuing a PhD will require that you learn new skills and master new subjects. While we consider experience with computer architecture, compilers, and circuits important and meritorious, you will be working in a coaching-focused environment where such skills can readily be improved with help from your advisors, fellow PhD students, and courses. Thus, aptitude, self-motivation, interest and perseverance are therefore more important a particular skill-set. There are however a few things which one will not have the time to learn during a PhD and hence we require that applicants are already good writers and programmers, and are able to point to indications thereof, such as text and code produced by the in the past.

In addition to the above, applicants should be able to work well both on their own and with others in a diverse group, be comfortable giving and receiving constructive criticism, and have strong abilities for critical thinking and structured work. These competencies are as important as the technical qualifications. Please see: http://www.it.uu.se/research/group/uart/applying_phd for more details.

Rules governing PhD students are set out in the Higher Education Ordinance chapter 5, §§ 1-7 and in Uppsala University’s rules and guidelines.
