PhD student position in optimizing lyophile reconstitution

We will employ pore-scale modeling and simulations, in combination with validation experiments, to investigate the connection between the product microstructure and material properties and the reconstitution behavior. The desired outcome of the project is a methodology to predict the impact of product physical attributes on the reconstitution time of products.

We are therefore looking for a creative new colleague that wants to take on this challenge together with us. We are offering a position as a PhD student in the Multiphase Flow group at the Division of Fluid Dynamics. The group has approximately 15 members of varying backgrounds and research interests. The project is carried out in close collaboration with Astra Zeneca.

Information about the projectLyophilisation (freeze-drying) is typically applied to maintain and improve pharmaceutical stability of proteins that may be unstable when formulated as liquids. The process makes aqueous solutions into solid, porous structures typically termed “cakes”. Prior to patient administration, cakes must be reconstituted back into a solution. Some lyophilised products have very long and unpredictable (and variable) reconstitution times, which is undesirable from a drug administration perspective. A major challenge here is to understand the connection between the product microstructure and the reconstitution behavior (time).

In this project we will use pore-scale numerical simulations to understand the effect of a number of process parameters and cake properties on the reconstitution time. More specifically, our ambition is to investigate how the reconstitution time is affected by the degree of crystallinity of the cake, wettability of solids comprising the cake, the ability of the liquids to penetrate the cake, cake disintegration tendency and properties of cake microstructure (pore size distribution).

The position also includes teaching or other departmental duties corresponding to 10-20 % of working hours and is time limited up to 4.5-5 years depending on the amount of teaching and departmental work during your doctoral project.

Major responsibilities
Your major responsibilities as a PhD student is to pursue your own doctoral studies. You are expected to develop your own scientific concepts and communicate the results of your research verbally and in writing. Your research will be supervised by several well-reputed senior researchers and experts from industry, offering a supportive environment for performing cutting-edge research. The position generally also includes teaching in undergraduate level courses.

Qualifications
To qualify as a PhD student, you must have a MSc degree in a relevant field. The position requires sound verbal and written communication skills in Swedish and English. If Swedish is not your native language, you should be able to teach in Swedish after two years. Chalmers offers Swedish courses.

You are self-propelled and highly motivated, and you plan and think strategically. You are creative and like to put new ideas into practice. You have a solid interest in scientific computing and a strong natural curiosity with a genuine wish to learn more and develop your skills and knowledge further in the fields of research, research communication and project management.

PhD student position in Optimal usage and properties of second life batteries for energy storage

This PhD position gives a unique possibility to reach absolute specialist competence in battery research and combine this with automatic control, both fields with very strong job markets in the foreseeable future. You will be working in an internationally well-reputed group of about 15 researchers developing battery management algorithms improving battery performance and lifetime, and aiming for a more sustainable future.

Project description
Second life batteries are batteries that have ended usage in their first application but are in a sufficiently good condition to allow a second application. Soon there will be very large quantities of such batteries from electric vehicles. That and their short response-time make them highly interesting for power grid applications, where they can be used for power peak shaving, frequency control, and to compensate for variations in renewable energy sources, all utterly important in the development towards a fossil free energy system. Optimal battery management of such systems, however, is still poorly studied and highly challenging because of the large variability in the properties of old cells, and a general lack of knowledge of the ageing of 2nd life batteries. Development of general self-adapting ageing models will therefore be an important topic of the research.

This project is part of a new National research centre, Swedish Electricity Storage and Balancing Centre, administrated by the department. To ensure appropriate relevance you will work with specialists in the involved partner companies, Volvo GTT, Volvo Energy and BatteryLoop Technologies.

Information about the division and the department
The position is with the Automatic Control group, comprising about 35 researchers at the division of Systems and Control, which has about 100 employees and is the largest division of the Department of electrical engineering. Aiming for a sustainable world, the group is involved in many research projects on energy savings using automatic control methods. In general, the projects are carried out in collaboration with other research groups, institutes and industry, and often in interdisciplinary constellations. The BMS (battery management system) team, within Automatic Control, is the leading team on BMS research in Swedish academia, with a successful focus on modelling, estimation and control. For its battery research, the team has received the Volvo Car Technology Award and has published over 40 top tier journal papers and several patents. The working environment is international and characterized by openness.

Major responsibilities
Your major responsibility is to pursue research in line with the project, publish, and present scientific articles, and take part in discussions. As part of your PhD you will receive further education by courses relevant for your research, research project, automatic control in a wide sense, and your future career. You will also be expected to participate in teaching activities in the field of Automatic Control.

Qualifications 
To qualify as a PhD student, you must have a master’s level degree corresponding to at least 240 higher education credits preferably in control, electric power engineering, computer science, engineering physics or similar. Previous experience of battery management systems, data science and power systems is a merit.

The position requires sound verbal and written communication skills in English. If Swedish is not your native language, Chalmers offers Swedish courses.

Contract terms
The position is a full-time temporary employment for four years of PhD studies extended up to five years to accommodate teaching performed at the department.

We offer Chalmers offers a cultivating and inspiring working environment in the coastal city of Gothenburg

PhD student position in fluid mechanics of turbulent clouds

Climate change is a socio-economic challenge, and climate simulations are the only tool to predict our planet’s future climate. Clouds are crucial for weather and climate predictions. According to the IPCC, cloud modelling is one of the least understood domains in climate sciences and is “listed as one of the most urgent problems requiring scientific attention”. Clouds are considered the largest source of uncertainty in climate predictions because it is complicated to accurately model the small-scale process (microphysics) inside clouds occurring in a range from meters to nanometers in a global climate model where the resolution is of the order of Kilometers. This project will address this challenge by using novel multiscale techniques developed for general multiphase flows that allow us to accurately solve the small-scale cloud turbulence and its impact on nucleation, evaporation and collisions of cloud droplets.

Project description
The Department of Mechanics and Maritime Science at Chalmers University is offering a doctoral position to investigate, quantify, and model the impact of turbulence on the dynamics of water droplets/aerosols inside warm ice-free clouds. The methodology combines different numerical techniques including Direct (DNS) and Large-Eddy (LES) Simulations, together with stochastic models to predict the water droplet number and size spectra inside clouds and the mechanics of rain formation. The aim is to measure the main microphysical processes that determine, in combination with turbulence, the cloud droplet sizes: nucleation of cloud condensation nuclei (CCN), growth by condensation of water vapor, growth by collisions/coalescence induced by turbulence and gravity. The project is highly interdisciplinary and involves interactions and collaborations with statistics and atmospheric physicists.

Information about the division and the department
The position will be open at the Fluid Dynamic division of Mechanical and Maritime Science department. The research at the Division covers turbulent flow (both compressible and incompressible), multiphase flows, aero-acoustics and turbomachines. Our tools include both computations and experiments. The research covers a wide range of topics. In some research projects the smallest turbulent scales are studied whereas in others the function of a complete gas turbine is analyzed and modelled. The Division of Fluid Dynamics is part of Chalmers Sustainable Transport Initiative, Chalmers eScience Initiative and Chalmers Energy Initiative.

Major responsibilities
As a PhD student, you will be central to the development of the project, and also be responsible for the implementation, validation and data analysis of the numerical tools.

You are expected to learn to develop your own scientific concepts and communicate the results of your research verbally and in writing. Your research activities will contribute to enhanced knowledge in the scientific field, in particular by presenting your results in scientific journals and at international conferences.

The position also includes teaching courses within Chalmers’ undergraduate level corresponding to up to 20 percent of the working hours
Qualifications
To qualify as a PhD student, you must have a master’s level degree corresponding to at least 240 higher education credits in a relevant field. You also need a MSc in Mechanical Eng., Naval/Maritime Eng., Chemical Eng., Physics, Math. Eng., Aeronautics or any corresponding MSc. The position requires sound verbal and written communication skills in English. If Swedish is not your native language, Chalmers offers Swedish courses.

Contract terms
Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of 4,5 years.

Three doctoral students on Edge Computing


Information about the project and the research
The team working on this project, consisting of the PI with three new PhD students, will revolutionize edge computing operating systems and edge software design. The team will work across the entire edge stack, (re-)defining how edge systems are designed, built, and operated. Together, we will start with a clean-slate design to edge systems, with the aim of answering the following four Research Questions:

1. What is the right architecture to build a distributed edge cloud, taking into account the tradeoffs between cost, performance, bandwidth, and energy.
2. How to design adaptive edge applications that can utilize the full potential of the edge infrastructure given the multiple edge constraints.
3. How to manage the workload dynamics of real-time edge cloud applications taking into account mobility, load spikes, failures, and performance inversion.
4. How to manage and process massive data of edge applications in real-time while maintaining the requirements on data privacy and security.

We will produce open-source code for an edge operating system. We will aim to deploy and test some of our designs in real-life systems.
This project is funded with a Future Research Leaders SSF grant. You will work closely with the rest of the team members, and your supervisor Ahmed on some of the hardest (and most fun!) problems today in computer systems. The division of Computer and Network Systems where you will be employed has top-notch faculty and students covering all fields of computer systems. The department of computer science and engineering is one of the best computer science departments in Sweden and Europe.

Major responsibilities
Your major responsibilities are to pursue your own doctoral studies. You are expected to develop your own scientific concepts and communicate the results of your research verbally and in writing. The position generally also includes teaching on Chalmers’ undergraduate level or performing other duties corresponding to 20 per cent of working hours.

Mandatory qualifications
Finished or working towards a M.Sc. degree or did a five years program in computer science or any related field.

Meritourious qualifications
Grades are not everything, industrial experience, open-source contributions, and/or other achievements will all be highly valued.

The position requires sound verbal and written communication skills in English. If Swedish is not your native language, Chalmers offers Swedish courses.

Contract terms
Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of five years.

We offer Chalmers offers a cultivating and inspiring working environment in the coastal city of Gothenburg
