PhD Scholarship in MVDC Collection System for Large Offshore Wind Farms

The Department of Wind Energy in the Technical University of Denmark (DTU Wind Energy) is seeking a PhD for the Integration and Planning Section (INP).

 

DTU Wind Energy is a mission driven university department with a vision to be the preferred university partner for the global wind energy sector. The department creates value for society through integration of research with education, innovation and research-based consultancy within key fields central to the development and use of wind energy.

 

You will be part of the international team carrying out research in Integration and Planning Section where the working language is English.

 

Our research is function oriented in the sense that we direct the research towards issues that are relevant for industrial development and applications, and we work in projects with system integration, control concepts for wind turbines, wind power plants, electrical components, grid connection and large-scale wind energy penetration.

 

Please look at www.vindenergi.dtu.dk for more details on the type of activities we undertake.  

 

DTU has a strategic collaboration agreement with SINTEF and NTNU (Norwegian Technical University) and has established the Nordic Offshore Wind Research and Innovation Centre (NOWRIC). The NOWRIC Center is a solid platform for both academic and industrial collaboration. DTU Wind Energy supports the Center with this PhD position.

Offshore wind power development today is mostly done in large wind farms, located further from the shore. Depending on the distance, the transmission to shore is done using Direct Current (DC) technology. However, the collection system – the electrical infrastructure connecting the individual wind turbines – is based on Alternating Current (AC) technology. This is not optimal, as it involves another conversion stage – AC to DC – with the added components and additional losses.  To overcome this, DC technology can be used for the offshore wind farm collection system. Several concepts have been proposed in the literature, however there is a gap in the analysis of the detailed implications of those concepts on the wind turbine control. Furthermore, there is great need of a unified tool that allows performing a techno-economic analysis of the different concepts.

 

The present PhD project will be associated to the Nordic Offshore Wind Research and Innovation Center, and will take advantage of collaboration with researchers at both DTU, NTNU and SINTEF.

Responsibilities and tasks

The proposed PhD study will investigate concepts for MVDC collection grid in large offshore wind farms. The focus will be on large wind turbines, i.e. > 10MW. The main objective is to investigate, analyze, develop and implement MVDC topologies that will result in an overall lower cost of wind power. The analysis will cover the entire chain from wind turbines to offshore HVDC converter: wind turbine DC converter, MVDC cables, and DC/DC converters for MV to HV DC.

 

Detailed project plan will be developed with the supervisors and will include laboratory experiments. As a minimum, the PhD will include the following responsibilities and tasks:

  • State of the art literature review
  • Development and implementation of DC component models
  • Development of tool for techno-economic comparison of DC collection system concepts
  • Lab scale experimental testing at NTNU/SINTEF facilities

Qualifications
Candidates should have a master’s degree in engineering or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to the master’s degree in Electrical Engineering / Power Electronics / Power Engineering.

Project description
Project title: High Performance Thermoelectric Materials by Thermal Decomposition of Tailor-Made Metalorganic Precursors in Ionic Liquids.

Supervisor: Professor Anja-Verena Mudring, anja-verena.mudring@mmk.su.se.

In most energy conversion processes and in many equipment or chemical processes heat is dissipated which represents substantial energy losses. Thus, recovery of lost heat and conversion to high-value electric energy is an important, integral contribution to a robust and resource-efficient energy system. For this efficient thermoelectrics are needed that can recover the waste heat and convert it back to high-value electric energy. The project aims at developing improved thermoelectric materials for waste heat recovery through decomposition of metal-organic precursors with defined composition in task-specific ionic liquids (ILs) by microwave heating and subsequent mild compaction. This approach allows in a unique way to independently optimize the three key physical properties of a thermoelectric material where typically the optimization of one property is only possible at the expense of the other: Seebeck coefficient (single source precursor: defined charge carrier concentration, electric (IL: templating agent not compromising conductivity) and thermal conductivity (compaction: preserves microstructure). The PhD project will be supported through a grant from the Swedish Energy Agency, Energimyndigheten.

The successful candidate should have a background in chemistry, materials science, chemical engineering or a related subject. The position required the synthesis, structure and reactivity characterization of organometallic compounds as well as studying their transformation to the corresponding nanoscale materials, interpretation of data and scientific presentation.

Supervisor: Ass. Prof. Cheuk-Wai Tai, cheuk-wai.tai@mmk.su.se.

Our group is one of few that develop electron-based pair distribution function (ePDF) as well as 3D diffuse scattering. The aim of this PhD project is to develop 3D ePDF for studying structurally disorder in materials using transmission electron microscopes. By such analysis it is possible to reveal more structural information than the average structure of crystalline materials, e.g. local structural variations and defects. The systematic routines for collecting and processing the electron-scattered data will be developed. This technique will also be used to analyse disorder in some selected functional materials, such as in nanoparticles, glassy materials and functional ceramics, and how the disorder relate to the properties of interest. The project means multidisciplinary research involving experimental as well as theoretical work that are of interest not only from a fundamental scientific point of view but where the accumulated knowledge also will be of great technological importance.

Postdoc Position in Internationally Recognized Proteomics/PTMomics Research Group

Title: Development of a semi-automated biomarker discovery platform for clinical proteomics.

Background:
Quantitative proteomics technologies hold a great potential to discover, validate and accurately quantify protein disease biomarkers in body fluids and primary tissues. However, cell dynamics and survival are highly linked with cellular signalling pathways that are regulated and controlled by post-translational modifications (PTMs) of proteins. In fact, about 5% of all proteins in the cell are enzymes capable of modulating the more than 400 known PTMs found in human cells.

Since most diseases are developed due to perturbation in cellular signalling pathways, it is reasonable to believe that alterations in PTMs would have a much greater disease biomarker potential than alteration in protein expression in general.
The purpose of the project is to develop a robust quantitative proteomics platform for the identification and validation of selected PTMs of proteins that can be used to confidently identify biomarkers in clinical proteomics for the diagnosis of the disease, the stratification of patients according to their disease endotype or to monitor therapeutic responses to specific treatments in individual patients, personalized medicine.

Location of the project:
The project is located in the research group of Professor Martin R. Larsen, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Southern Denmark.
The Larsen research group is part of the Protein Research Group (PRG) at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) in Odense, Denmark. Odense is located only about one hour from the main capital of Denmark, Copenhagen. The PRG was founded 44 years ago by the recognized protein and biological mass spectrometry researcher Professor Peter Roepstorff and is internationally recognized for their contributions within biological mass spectrometry, proteomics, biomedical research and clinical proteomics. The PRG consist today of a large research environment with nine individual research groups and more than 60 scientists, postdocs and students who share facilities and research environment. The PRG has a fantastic student environment with many multicultural inputs.
The PRG has the newest mass spectrometers for biological mass spectrometry applications including two Fusion Lumos, three Q-Exactive HF and one Q-Exactive HFX. In addition, the PRG has a large fully equipped protein chemistry/proteomics laboratory, cell laboratory facilities and bioinformatics that will be available for the present project.

The Larsen group has for the past 20 years developed a large number of methods for assessment of PTMs in proteomics, including the Titanium Dioxide method (Larsen MR et al., Mol. Cell. Proteomics 2005) used by many research groups worldwide for isolation of phosphorylated peptides for characterization of signal transduction pathways in mammalian systems. The Larsen group research focus is centered on investigation of the role of PTMs in system biology and biomedicine and development of new innovative methods for assessment of PTMs in biological samples. The Larsen group has a significant amount of national and international collaborations and is publishing in higher ranging journals.

Professor Larsen is head of the Centre for Clinical Proteomics (CCP) in Odense which is a collaboration between the University of Southern Denmark and the Odense University Hospital. Through CCP we have access to a large number of patient cohorts and human clinical samples.
Qualifications
A successful candidate would have a PhD degree in biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology, proteomics or a related field and is highly motivated and innovative. A candidate with significant experience in functional proteomics, post-translational modification analysis, LC-based mass spectrometry and bioinformatics is preferable. Excellent communication and writing skills and an ability to interact socially and scientifically with other laboratory members and collaborators are essential. Previous postdoc experience and a strong publication record are also strong merits.
Starting date: 1 September 2019 or soon after. The position is limited to two years’ duration. Application deadline: 15 August 2019.
For further information please contact Professor Martin R. Larsen, PhD, e-mail: mrl@bmb.sdu.dk.

PhD Position in Bioimaging of Artificial Skin Models

A PhD scholarship in Bioimaging and Artificial skin models is available in the laboratory of Associate Professor Jonathan R. Brewer, situated at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Southern Denmark. The position is to be filled by 15 August 2019 or soon thereafter. Application deadline: 19 July 2019.

Outstanding candidates with experience in 3D cell culturing and optical microscopy techniques, such as live cell spinning disk/confocal and Coherent anti Stokes Raman Scattering, with an education in molecular biology, biochemistry, bio-physics and similar areas are invited to apply. Candidates should have a strong background in molecular biology. Knowledge and experience of advanced optical microscopy is desired, but can be acquired during the PhD.
The selected candidate will be working on an interdisciplinary project combining molecular biology, and bioimaging to develop and quantify artificial skin models. Artificial skin models offer unique possibilities of studying cellular behaviour in skin-related diseases. Different artificial models exist, the most complex termed full-thickness. Full-thickness models consist of both epidermis and dermis and is generated by seeding epidermal keratinocytes on a collagen matrix in which dermal fibroblasts are embedded. This type of model therefore enables studies of the interactions between these two cell types. In this research project, the aim is to establish an artificial full-thickness skin cancer model with the purpose of studying tumor growth in skin. The first step in this process will be the successful generation of a full-thickness model based on human keratinocytes and fibroblasts. Once one such model is established, the next step is to incorporate cancerous skin cells into the model to establish a tumor. The project will make use of advanced bioimaging techniques to elucidate the cellular mechanisms upon tumor growth as well as the consequences that follow for both the epidermis and the dermis.
For further information please contact Associate Professor Jonathan Brewer, tel.: +45 6550 3505, e-mail: brewer@bmb.sdu.dk.

Application, salary etc.
Appointment as a PhD Research Fellow is for three years. Employment stops automatically at the end of the period. The holder of the scholarship is not allowed to have other paid employment during the three-year period.

The successful applicant will be employed in accordance with the agreement of 10 November 2015 on salaried PhD scholars between the Ministry of Finance and AC (the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations). Please check links for more information on salary and taxation.

The successful candidate will be enrolled at this university in accordance with faculty regulations and the Danish Ministerial Order on the PhD Programme at the Universities (PhD order).

Doctoral student in sociology, in the research project “Determinants of social trust among adolescents”

Lunds universitet, Samhällsvetenskapliga fakulteten, Sociologiska institutionen

Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University has 40 000 students and 7 600 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.

The Faculty of Social Sciences at Lund University is one of the leading education and research institutions in Sweden and operates both in Lund and Helsingborg.

The Department of Sociology is home to Pedagogics, Social Anthropology and Sociology, with significant teaching commitments in all three disciplines. Research in the department span from empirical studies of contemporary social issues to critical theory, and the development of theory and methods.

This PhD position is linked to the research Project “Determinants of social trust among adolescents”, co-funded by the Crafoord Foundation (grant number 20190862) and led by associate professor (docent) Jan Mewes. While ever more recent studies suggest that social trust, the belief that most other people, including strangers, can be trusted, is very stable during adulthood, we know surprisingly little about the factors that shape individuals’ social trust during adolescence and early adulthood. Using a broad range of already existing quantitative data longitudinal and comparative survey studies, the research project will provide valuable answers to the question as to how social capital can be sustained and promoted. Do not hesitate to contact the project’s principal investigator Jan Mewes (jan.mewes@soc.lu.se) for more information.

Duties
Within the research project “The determinants of social trust among adolescents”, the appointed PhD student is expected to analyze a range of quantitative data from time-series, longitudinal and comparative survey data.

The PhD program consists of 240 credits (equivalent to four years of full-time studies) and is concluded with the public defense of a doctoral thesis. The appointed doctoral students will receive a salary from the University during four years, and their primary obligation is to complete their PhD studies. The position may involve departmental duties, mainly in the form of teaching, up to 20 per cent of full-time working hours, in which case the appointment will be extended by the equivalent number of hours. The terms of employment for doctoral students are regulated in the Swedish Higher Education Ordinance (HF), Chapter 5, Sections 1– 7.

The doctoral student shall be present and actively participate in the research and teaching environment at the department. The main language of the PhD program is English. However, non-Swedish speaking students are expected to acquire basic skills in Swedish during the period of employment. There are opportunities to participate in language courses taught at the University.

The doctoral studentship will commence on 1 September 2019 or later. The general syllabus and other information about the PhD program in Sociology is available at: http://www.soc.lu.se/en/research/research-studies/handbook

Eligibility/admission requirements
The requirements for admission to third cycle courses and study programs (in accordance with HF, Chapter 7, Section 35) are that the applicant (1) meets the general and specific entry requirements that the higher education institution may have laid down, and (2) is considered in other respects to have the ability required to benefit from the course or study program (Swedish Code of Statutes 2010:1064).
