PhD fellowship in Legume and Perennial Crop Root Phenotyping

Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences, Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen invites applicants for one (potentially two) PhD fellowship in “Legume Crops’ Root Development and Carbon Storage”. The project is part of the research project “KlimaProtein”, which is financed by Promilleafgiftsfonden.

Start date is January 1st, 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The project
Legume crops are important for protein production. However, their root systems are typically less extensive than that of other crops, reducing their resilience as they are sensitive to drought conditions. Perennial crops are of renewed interest due to their known ability to sequester high amounts of C into the soil, through their permanent root growth and activity. In both cases this lead to an interest in breeding for improved root systems, and thus for root phenotyping.

Within the PhD project, root phenotyping of faba bean and white clover genotypes will be made, quantifying the root growth itself, as well as differences in drought stress and deep water uptake. Root growth will be phenotyped using rhizoton techniques, including minirhizotrons in the RadiMax semi-field root phenotyping facility at University of Copenhagen. Root data will be obtained using the AI based image analysis software RootPainter. The RadiMax facility will also be used to do phenotyping for water stress and deep water uptake, using stable isotope labelling techiques. White clover will be studied growing in pure stand, and in mixture with grasses, as the crop is normally grown.

For soil C sequestration of perennial crops, there is a lack of relevant phenotyping methods, allowing estimates of genotypic differences in soil C contribution at a rate relevant for plant breeding purposes. We want to develop new phenotyping methods for the soil C deposition of perennial ley crop species, to allow breeding for this trait, and to study differences in root C contribution among ley crop species, commonly used species as well as relevant alternatives.

Our group and research
The research group Crop Physiology and Production Systems aims to do research focusing on plant growth and quality at the crop, crop rotation, and cropping system level. We work with the development of plants for food, feed, and biomass production. Optimization of crop production and quality include improvement of plant potential through breeding, based on studies of genetic diversity including new crop species. More information about the research group is available at: https://plen.ku.dk/english/research/crop_sciences/crop_physiol_prod/

Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Sustainable Battery Technology for Renewable Energy Systems

Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Sustainable Battery Technology for Renewable Energy Systems

Job description

A Postdoctoral Research Fellow position is available at the Department of Technology Systems (ITS) of the University of Oslo (UiO).

The fellowship is a full-time position with a fixed-term period of three years, of which 10% can be devoted to teaching-related compulsory duties.

An extended load of compulsory duties may be offered at the time of appointment, for candidates who can and want to contribute to teaching and supervision at the department as well as the EMPOWER project administration and management. In this case, the appointment period could be extended to four years, the compulsory duties will then be spread out over the full contract period, averaging 25% per year. 

Starting date: as soon as possible.

No one can be appointed for more than one Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the University of Oslo.

Job & project description:

We seek a research enthusiast with a PhD, who presents appropriate work performance and interest in investigating the potential of end-of-life batteries used in mobility (e.g., in electric vehicles (EVs) & micromobility) as an energy storage solution in renewable energy systems.

The study will include:

1)  an experimental part, focused on characterization of second-life battery performance and their operation in laboratory-scale microgrids

2)  a theoretical part, focused on extended analysis of sustainability & circular economy perspectives in the EV/micromobility battery production and application

The position is associated with the project EMPOWER: Sustainable Batteries in Mobility – (Em)powering a Net-zero Energy Transition. This initiative has been recently funded by UiO:Energy Convergence Environments and will run over the period 2022-2027. EMPOWER takes interdisciplinary research and education perspectives to investigate the role of electric vehicle batteries in enabling a sustainable net-zero energy transition in Norway.

EMPOWER offers early career scientists an inspiring interdisciplinary research and education environment. You will be a part of a fantastic team at the University of Oslo, composed of eight senior researchers/professors and six early career researchers across four faculties and six departments, as well as a wide range of industry and international partners. The main supervisor(s) are named under each job advert, and you will be co-supervised by at least one core member from another discipline.

More about EMPOWER

Both the EU’s Green Deal and the EU Circular Economy Action Plan mention the centrality of batteries to sustainable futures. In Norway, transport is the highest greenhouse gas-emitting sector. To reach the vision of a Norwegian net-zero energy system by 2050, the decarbonisation of all transport segments is crucial. While batteries represent a central technology for zero-carbon transportation, they also pose complex socio-ecological problems. A holistic analysis of the battery role for sustainable transport in a net-zero energy system is still missing. EMPOWER will address this knowledge gap, proposing an interdisciplinary approach to study the diversity of challenges (social, environmental, material, market, legal) found in the design, production, use, re-use, and recycling of batteries. Using Norway as a case study, EMPOWER will focus on investigation of electric vehicle/micromobility batteries to: i) develop a common definition of sustainable batteries for mobility across industry and involved disciplines; ii) explore representations of this sustainability concept in EV production and utilization, including the energy system perspective; iii) determine how the inclusion of this interdisciplinary set of criteria, for the sustainability of EV/micromobility batteries, impacts the design of net-zero energy systems; and iv) co-design educational offer for young people and early career researchers to facilitate their interdisciplinary understanding of battery-cantered research.

We are looking for people who are motivated to work towards a sustainable transition and are excited to collaborate with researchers from various disciplines.

The main purpose of a postdoctoral fellowship is to provide the candidates with enhanced skills to pursue a scientific top position within or beyond academia. To promote a strategic career path, all postdoctoral research fellows are required to submit a professional development plan no later than one month after commencement of the postdoctoral period.

More about position

The focus of this postdoctoral position is twofold:

1)    To recognize and map the opportunities and challenges for the sustainable application of waste EV batteries in microgrids, with integrated renewable energy sources, (RES), e.g., solar and wind energy

and

2)    To identify the role of technology in enabling the development of sustainable EV battery value chains

In the first task, you will:

  • design, integrate and characterize the performance of battery packs, based on various types of second life battery cells/modules
  • test the engineered battery packs, integrated in a lab-scale microgrid, to explore their potential as an energy storage medium in RES. The research will involve comparative studies between new and second-life EV batteries, with a particular focus on battery technical performance as well as grid stability and resilience during load changes, failures and disruptive conditions

In the second task, you will:

  • apply a circular economy viewpoint to identify and describe current technologies utilized in the EV battery value chain (e.g., materials extraction, electrode/cell/module production, pack assembly, vehicle integration, use & reuse/recycle, etc.)  and look at them from a battery life cycle perspective. The work will be done in collaboration with research fellows from the other project work packages (focusing on social, environmental and legal aspects in the EV production and utilization) as well as industrial partners. This activity is envisioned to extend the battery life cycle perspective by a techno-economic input.

The research will be carried out at ITS/UiO and workshops of our industrial partners (BATTKOMP AS) in Norway. A part of the experimental study involving a micorgrid utilization will be conducted aboard, at the Renewable Energy Control Laboratory (REC), at Aalborg University (DK), which is one of the project academic partners.

At ITS, the research will be carried out within the Section for Energy Systems. ITS is a new and growing department at UiO, located in Kjeller, with internationally recognized research groups, which provide training and education for students and research fellows. The department is a part of the Kjeller Science Park, which is one of the largest research and development environments in Norway.

PhD scholarship in Dynamic Traffic Assignment with Integrated Behavioural Modelling

DTU Management at the Technical University of Denmark invites applications for a 3-year PhD position in the Network modelling group of the Division of Transport.

If you are interested in urban transportation systems, have a background in transportation, logistics, mathematical modelling, behavioral modelling or operations research and wish to establish a scientific career within this field, this PhD position is the right one for you. In the project you will push the frontier by developing Dynamic Traffic Assignment (DTA) models that embed realistic and consistent behavioural modelling incorporating considerations of travel time reliability. 

Urban transportation networks are plagued by traffic congestion and contribute to a significant share of societal energy consumption and emissions. Addressing this critical challenge through sustainable solutions for future urban mobility requires the development of robust, realistic, and accurate models of the transportation network. DTA models area a promising approach for this, by combining behavioural models of route and departure time choice (demand) with models that capture the temporal dynamics of congestion (supply). However, the critical issue of variability in the transportation system (due to weather, incidents, special events, etc.) has not yet been addressed, and this will be the purpose of your project. Moreover, you will advance the state-of-the-art by developing DTA models with behaviourally realistic route choice models incorporating travel time reliability, while considering the dynamic and stochastic nature of network travel times. 

Responsibilities and qualifications
Your overall focus will be to develop and implement models and solution algorithms for DTA that extend the start-of-the-art to incorporate behaviourally realistic models of route choice (including user perceptions of travel time reliability) and consider the day-to-day variability in travel times. Utilising unique large-scale data sources, you will also apply and calibrate these to a real-world network.

You will work with an inter-disciplinary team of experts within the topic and be part of the Network Modelling group within the Division of Transport at DTU Management. The division also consists of research groups within transport demand, machine learning for smart mobility, transport economics and transport psychology. As part of your responsibilities, you will disseminate your research through journal publications and international conferences and participate in teaching activities.

This project is a partnership with the Israel Institute of Technology (Technion), and you are expected to do an extended research visit to Professor Shlomo Bekhor at Technion.

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. The degree should be within Transportation Modelling, Applied Mathematics and Statistics, Data Science, Behavioural Studies, or related.

Furthermore:

  • Knowledge in statistics and probabilities is required
  • Transportation modelling disciplines in your educational background are preferable
  • Programming capabilities are preferable, e.g. in Python

The following soft skills are also important:  

  • Good communication skills in English, both written and orally
  • Willingness to engage in group-work with a multi-national team

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

Assessment
The assessment of the applicants will be made by shortly after the application deadline.

We offer

PhD scholarship in Broadband MRI Radiofrequency Coil Development

The Electromagnetic Systems group at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) seeks a qualified candidate for a Ph.D. position in broadband MRI radiofrequency coil development. The project will be conducted in collaboration between DTU and the University of Queensland (UQ), Australia.

A standard clinical MRI scanner consists of a strong electromagnet where radiofrequency transceiver with coils is used to image water molecules. Different biological tissues have different water content, therefore MRI is particularly suitable for medical diagnostics, though other applications also exist. MRI is a versatile technique and can image nuclei and molecules other than water, which opens up completely new possibilities. For example, by imaging carbon nuclei it is possible to follow metabolic processes, which can tell so much more about the function of the human body. Imaging other nuclei, however, requires additional new radio frequency coils.

The objective of the Ph.D. project is to demonstrate MR imaging of nuclei other than hydrogen by building MRI coils, which can cover frequencies of multiple nuclei.

Responsibilities and qualifications
The main outcome of the project will be a broadband/multinuclear coil array technology ready to be implemented in clinical environment.

  • Design and implement multinuclear radiofrequency coil for MRI;
  • Imaging experiments:
  • Coordinate efforts on mechanical and electrical safety tests end approval for clinical use;
  • Disseminate the project results to the public and exchange of knowledge with society.

The applicant will take part in research-based teaching.

Contributing to the development of a good work atmosphere and a thriving environment is essential.

You must have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) in engineering, preferably in electrical engineering or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree.

The University of Helsinki is among the leading multidisciplinary research universities in the world. In addition to its 11 faculties, the University includes several independent institutes, some of which are jointly operated with other universities. Some 35,000 students are currently pursuing an undergraduate or a postgraduate degree at the University of Helsinki. Measured in number of students and teachers, the Faculty of Science at the University of Helsinki is the largest science faculty in Finland. There are some 6,000 students taking a basic degree. Out of them, some 1,000 are postgraduates. There are some 500 international students, and over 200 researchers and teachers from abroad.

 

We are looking for a motivated Doctoral Researcher (PhD candidate) to join our research group that is studying Galactic molecular clouds and star-formation processes. The work will be carried out at the Department of Physics, University of Helsinki. The University of Helsinki welcomes applicants from a variety of genders, linguistic and cultural backgrounds.

 

The Department of Physics is a large and multidisciplinary department that offers the most varied university programme in the physical sciences in Finland. At the beginning of 2022, the department employs about 200 people, of which 2 are academy professors, 20 are professors and 5 associate professors or assistant professors. The research at the department and the research-based teaching follow a high international standard, are nationally significant, and promote the mental and economic wellbeing in society.

 

Description

The Doctoral Researcher will be employed for up to 46 months, to complete PhD studies in the Doctoral Programme in Particle Physics and Universe Sciences. The PhD work will take place in the context of an Academy of Finland -financed research project that seeks to understand the initial conditions and processes of Galactic star formation, using a combination of observations and numerical simulations.

The employed PhD student will concentrate on observational work. This involves the analysis of observations of dust continuum and molecular spectral lines, from optical to radio wavelengths. The studied objects range in scale from cloud complexes to individual protostellar cores. The general goal is to characterise the physical and chemical evolution patterns along the star-formation process. The work can start with existing data (e.g. from JCMT, ALMA, and other ESO telescopes), but the student is also expected to be active in leading new observing-time proposals. In addition to the observational work, the student can participate in the modelling of the observations and in their comparison with numerical simulations and paradigms of low-mass and high-mass star formation.
