PhD position in Kinetic and Thermodynamic Modeling of Gas Hydrate Systems

DTU Chemical Engineering invites applications for a 3-year PhD position in Kinetic and thermodynamic modeling of gas hydrate systems.

This modelling project is part of a larger initiative which considers the problem of using carbon dioxide to produce the vast resources of natural gas locked up as solid gas hydrates in permafrost and oceanic margin zones. The natural gas hydrates are converted to CO2 hydrates, thereby storing CO2 (the major greenhouse gas) while simultaneously releasing natural gas. This so-called “swapping” process, whereby methane (the major component in natural gas) in the hydrate is replaced by CO2, allows for production of natural gas from hydrate without adversely affecting the stability of the solid hydrate.

Responsibilities and tasks
The project will involve kinetic and thermodynamic modeling of gas hydrate systems and processes as well as molecular simulation, for example to probe the formation of CO2 hydrate and dissociation of CH4 hydrate in a production/storage scenario.

Qualifications

Candidates should have a master’s degree in chemical engineering or similar. A strong background in chemical process modelling (thermodynamics, reaction kinetics, transport processes) and molecular simulation is essential.

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

Assessment

PhD student for Privacy Preserving Blockchain Applications

The IT University of Copenhagen invites highly motivated individuals to apply for a 3 year PhD position starting in November 2019 or soon thereafter.

The position is part of the research Center for Information Security and Trust (CIST), placed in the Computer Science Department.

The project
Currently, most popular cryptocurrencies and smart contract systems such as Bitcoin and Ethereum offer no privacy guarantees. In practice, this means that all user data on transactions and contract execution is publicly available on the blockchain. The goal of this project is to develop new cryptographic protocols and techniques for privacy preserving blockchain applications, which guarantee that sensitive user data is never revealed. Besides guaranteeing user privacy, we also aim at developing new cryptographic techniques that allow for authorities to lawfully audit user activities in our privacy preserving protocols, which is an Important issue in current privacy preserving blockchain applications.

Towards this goal, we will investigate new techniques for constructing privacy preserving cryptocurrencies and smart contracts that do not leak user data on the blockchain but still allow for public verification of transactions and smart contract executions. While anonymous cryptocurrency systems such as Zcash solve the privacy issues of most current systems, they irrevocably hide all user activities, making it impossible to investigate illegal activities conducted in the system. Aiming at constructing regulation compliant protocols, we will investigate techniques for lawful auditing of user activities in privacy preserving blockchain applications.

The research in this project will focus on employing techniques from the areas of secure multiparty computation, zero knowledge and anonymous credentials to construct privacy preserving yet auditable cryptographic protocols for blockchain applications. More specifically, we will use these techniques to design and analyze provably secure protocols that implement cryptocurrencies with both privacy and auditability guarantees. We will also focus on improving the efficiency of such protocols aiming at practical applications.

The successful applicant should:

  • Have a strong background in computer science or mathematics, with a focus on complexity theory, number theory, algebra and probability theory
  • Have previous research experience in security and cryptography (specially in cryptographic protocols) is most welcome
  • Be motivated and enthusiastic about theoretical research in cryptography

Qualification Requirements
The following qualifications are required:

  • 3 year programme: candidates should have an MSc (or equivalent)
  • 4 year programme: candidates should have a BSc

Application
The application must be in English and must include:

  • A cover letter;
  • A statement of purpose, which provides evidence of independent thinking, novelty and originality, and a state of the art grasp of the targeted research field matching the project description above;
  • Documentation of academic degree(s); grade transcripts that documents outstanding academic achievement;
  • Curriculum Vitae, which must include two professional/academic references;
  • Applications may also include a relevant scientific publication written by the applicant, or the applicants master thesis. Letters of recommendation can also be included in the application

Applications without the above-mentioned documents will not be assessed.

It is understood that even highly qualified applicants will satisfy these requirements to varying degrees, for example because of differences in publication cultures in various research fields.

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.

 

The successful candidate is required to have:

  • Documented background in converter modelling and control
  • Documented background in at least one power engineering simulation tool, e.g. PSCAD, PowerFactory, Simscape Power Systems
  • Knowledge on wind turbine / wind power plant technology
  • Ability to work in a project team and take responsibility for own research goals
  • Fluency in communicating and reporting in English
  • Prior experience with Real time digital simulations and Hardware in the Loop Testing is appreciated.

The successful candidate must also fulfill the requirements for admission to a doctoral program at both DTU and NTNU.

 

Approval and Enrolment

The scholarship for the PhD degree are subject to academic approval, and the candidates will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes of DTU. For information about the general requirements for enrolment and the general planning of the scholarship studies, please see the DTU PhD Guide.

 
Assessment

The assessment of the applicants will be made by Prof. Nicolaos A. Cutululis from DTU and Prof. Elisabetta Tedeschi from NTNU.

 

We offer

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.

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.

Application, salary etc.

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