PhD Research Fellow in 2D materials

The Mads Clausen Institute, University of Southern Denmark, in Odense seeks a suitable candidate for a 3-year position as PhD Research Fellow within the area of theoretical condensed-matter theory for 2D materials with the starting date September 1, 2022, or as soon as possible thereafter.

The position is supported by a research grant from the Independent Research Fund Denmark (DFF) awarded to Prof. N. Asger Mortensen (SDU) and Prof. Nuno M. R. Peres (University of Minho) for research in “Polaritons in twisted bilayer materials”.

The proposed project is concerned with theoretical explorations of two-dimensional monolayer and bilayer materials that are hosting intriguing electronic and opto-electronic phenomena, where in particular the twist angle of bilayers offering a new knob that can change both single-particle properties as well as many-body properties of the electron system. This has already manifested in the intriguing observation of superconductivity in twisted graphene bilayers. This project expands beyond condensed-matter physics and into the domain of optical sciences by hypothesizing that the twist angle can also be used to manipulate opto-electronic properties. In particular, the project focuses on semiconducting 2D materials, such as hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) or transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), that can interestingly host excitons even at room temperature. The aim is to theoretically explore the formation of electron-hole pairs in twisted bilayers and to investigate how the excitons manifest in polaritons when hybridized with light fields.

Potential candidates for the fully funded 3-year PhD-scholarship are expected to have a relevant MSc degree in physics or engineering and with expertise in condensed-matter theory.

Candidates should motivate their application in a cover letter.

Contact information

PhD position in Multi-scale, multiphysics, mechanical focused modelling of solid oxide cell stacks

Electrolysis and power-to-X (P2X) are becoming key energy technologies in the green transition, as they will essential for us to replacing fossils. The solid oxide electrolysis technology is a very promising technology because of the high efficiency and hereby lower operational cost. However, while the performance of solid oxide electrolysis cells is the most efficient of all electrolysis technologies, the robustness of the technology must still be improved.

The core of the solid oxide cell technology is the solid oxide cell stacks, which are operated at high temperature (600-850ºC). Besides the ceramic cells the stacks are made up by coated metal components and they are joined at high temperature using a glass-ceramic sealing material. With the flow of water vapor, air and hydrogen and electro-chemical reactions and currents, the temperature will vary inside the stack but also over time as the operational conditions are changed. All in all, the thermal stresses inside the stack varies in time and space with a risk of failure.

Responsibilities and qualifications
The current PhD study aims towards minimizing the risk of failure. This will be done through adding to an already developed multi-scale and multiphysics model of the stacks. This model uses so-called homogenization / localization to step between scales. This development has been made to make fast computation of various physical fields available on the stack scale and make transient modelling possible. Because of the computational efficiency the methodology has been adopted by most European solid oxide cell stack developers. The stack scale model will not reveal the local stresses, which are needed to investigate if any failures occur. The aim of the PhD project is to research and further develop on the mechanical part of the multi-scale model, to map global (average) stresses from the stack scale model to local models, in order to investigate for failure.

There will also be an opportunity to work in the high temperature mechanical laboratory, if certain material parameters are needed. Here it would be possible to conduct anything from simple strength characterization to creep and fracture mechanical investigations.

This PhD project will be carried out in a group with colleagues who are working with developing other parts of the model as well with colleagues, who are more experimentally oriented and works with the characterization of the cells and stacks. The PhD project will be funded through a project with an industrial partner (Topsoe) with which a strong collaboration exists.

You should thus preferably be:

  • Strong background in solid mechanics, and preferably also fracture mechanics
  • Extensive knowledge on finite element modelling
  • Knowledge about multi-physics modelling
  • Be a good team-worker – be happy to share thoughts and receive feedback from others
  • Have a background in technical sciences or engineering, i.e. mechanical engineering, civil engineering, physics or other relevant background

You must 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.

If you work as a doctoral student with us you receive the benefits of support in career development, networking, administrative and technical support functions along with excellent employment conditions. See more information at:
https://www.umu.se/en/department-of-computing-science/

Is this interesting for you? Welcome with your application before 14th of August 2022.

Project description 

Because of privacy concerns around user data, and related legislation around handling user data, there has been an increased interest in using edge devices such as mobile phones, to process user data without storing them at a central location. This has also been a major concern in privacy-sensitive areas such as in medical applications of machine learning, where sharing patient data between hospitals raises privacy issues since patient data virtually always contain private information.

There has therefore been much interest lately in federated learning, a class of optimization algorithms used mainly to train a global machine learning model at disparate heterogeneous sites without sharing data between the sites. It is possible to frame federated learning as an operator splitting problem, and within the operator splitting framework, it is possible to simultaneously solve many of the problems that arise when training large-scale machine learning models on e.g., medical images or other data from multiple sites.

The doctoral student position is offered within a research project financed by the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP). The project is a collaboration between Tommy Löfstedt, Docent and Associate Professor at the Department of Computing Science, Umeå University, and Alp Yurtsever, Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics, Umeå University.

Postdoc Position – FeatureCloud: Federated Machine Learning for Complex Multi-OMICS Data

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Southern Denmark for the Computational Biology laboratory chaired by Associate Professor Richard Röttger invites applications for a postdoctoral position within the field of federated machine learning and AI to be filled by 1 September 2022 or soon thereafter for a period of initially 15 months with the prospects of being prolonged. Application deadline: 1 August 2022.

The research is part of a large European effort, FeatureCloud, to establish privacy-aware federated machine learning approaches to enable the mining of distributed, sensitive data. Currently, one major roadblock of biomedical research is that the valuable data is scattered around the globe and sharing, and consolidating, data is simply not possible due to privacy concerns. With FeatureCloud we are seeking to elevate this prohibitive problem by allowing federated machine learning, i.e. we leave the data on the safe harbour of storage and train local models at the sites; thereafter only the model parameters are consolidated in a central instance to create a model of capabilities similar to a conventional model trained on all the available data. 

The successful candidate will develop novel approaches for federated machine learning of systems medicine and multi-OMICS data in particular. The candidate will be embedded in a highly international and powerful consortium as a member of the Computational Biology group which offers a wide expertise in machine learning on biomedical data, both in the realm of unsupervised and supervised learning. We also provide the candidate with direct access to state-of-the-art computing facilities optimized for deep learning and distributed computing. 

We are seeking outstanding candidates with strong analytical and problem-solving skills, who are strong in written and oral communication (in English), and have documented experience in data science, machine learning and software development of complex systems. Expertise in the analysis of biological data is an advantage, but not a requirement. Expertise in computer security and data privacy are welcome, but not required.

Place of work:
Computational Biology Group (Associate Professor Richard Röttger, roettger@imada.sdu.dk), Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, located at the main campus of the University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark.

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.

Application must include the following documents:
1. Letter of motivation and proposed project description, outlining the candidate’s ideas of how to approach the project (max. two pages).
2. Curriculum vitae, including information on previous employment, list of programming skills mastered by the applicant, and teaching and supervision experience.
3. A list of publications stating the scientific publication(s) on which the applicant wishes to rely (if available).
4. A certified copy of your PhD degree certificate.
5. At least one letter of recommendation from supervisors or previous employers.

Shortlisting may be used in the assessment process.

Incomplete applications and applications received after the deadline will neither be considered nor evaluated.

To qualify you must have passed a PhD or equivalent. Applications will be assessed by an expert assessor/committee. Applicants will be informed of their assessment by the university.

The University wishes our staff to reflect the diversity of society and thus welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background.

Applications must be submitted electronically using the link "Apply online". Attached files must be in Adobe PDF or Word format. Each box can only contain a single file of max. 10 Mb. We strongly recommend that you read How to apply before you apply.

PhD scholarship in the characterization of fatigue damage processes at various length scales

The Department of Environmental and Resource Engineering (DTU Sustain) invites applications for a PhD scholarship in the fields of experimental mechanics and fatigue testing, starting from October 1, 2022.

This project aims to understand the basic mechanisms of fatigue in heterogeneous materials to enable a physics-based approach for modelling and characterization. We will achieve this aim seamlessly integrating in situ x-ray microtomography, novel digital volume correlation techniques, and innovative finite element and multiscale modelling approaches to assess the evolving 3D displacement and strain fields at various length scales. The project will thereby have a significant impact on the field, predicting the emergent behaviour of heterogeneous materials without resorting to phenomenology but rather directly unravelling the micro-mechanical origin of macroscopic behaviour.

The successful candidates will join an ambitious international research team and gain access to world-leading research facilities, such as the Villum Center for Advanced Structural and Material Testing (CASMaT) as well as the 3D imaging centre (3DIM) at DTU.

Responsibilities and qualifications
The PhD study will be involved in the following tasks:

  • investigate structural changes during the fatigue damage process at the micro/mesoscale and relate these to the stress-strain relation at the macro-scale
  • conduct low-cycle and high-cycle fatigue tests under monotonic, cyclic fatigue loading in compression to investigate the fatigue damage process at the micro-, meso-, and macro-scale systematically
  • characterize the fatigue damage process at the various length scales, novel techniques and tools will be complemented with traditional (destructive and non-destructive) measurement techniques, such as scanning electron microscopy, acoustic emission, conventional strain measurements, and surface DIC.
  • utilize various measurement techniques to relate the influence of macroscopic fatigue deterioration on crucial material properties and material behaviour of cement-based materials
  • study the influence of the size effect on the fatigue behaviour and the corresponding fatigue damage process by performing fatigue tests on specimens with varying dimensions
  • participate in the teaching and dissemination activities of the department.

Candidates should have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) in civil engineering, materials science, or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree. Candidates with a proven background in experimental mechanics and a keen interest in fatigue crack growth in heterogeneous materials will be prioritized.

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 DTU’s rules for the PhD education.
