PhD student position in multiphase flow

HR_Kollage_14_600x150px.jpg

Information about the project
You will be active in a research project at the Division of Fluid Dynamics at Chalmers University of Technology. The project will be carried in out in cooperation with the Fraunhofer-Chalmers Research centre. With help of detailed simulations we will look at the fundamental principles behind efficient removal of contaminants from self-cleaning surfaces. The technology of self-cleaning continually attracts considerable attention from both fundamental research and practical applications. There are numerous applications of such a technology: e.g. cleaning of solar panels, car windshields and camera lenses; preventing fouling of heat-exchanger surfaces, anti-icing and anti-sticking surfaces.

Through resolved microscale simulations and modelling at nanoscale, we will explain the fundamental role that condensed water droplets, properties of surfaces and different wettabilities of particles play in the process of self-cleaning on superhydrophobic surfaces. We will work with two mechanisms of self-cleaning: the lotus effect and the one with the self-propelled jumping condensate.

PhD student position in quantum optics with giant atoms

HR_Kollage_15_600x150px.jpg

QUANTUM OPTICS WITH GIANT ATOMS

Information about the research and the Applied Quantum Physics Laboratory
This PhD position will explore the theory for quantum optics with giant atoms. In quantum optics, it is common to assume that atoms can be approximated as point-like compared to the wavelength of the light they interact with. However, recent advances in experiments (at Chalmers, MIT, and other places) with artificial atoms built from superconducting circuits have shown that this assumption can be violated. Instead, these artificial atoms can couple to an electromagnetic field at multiple points, which are spaced wavelength distances apart. Such systems are called giant atoms. The main novelty of giant atoms is that the multiple coupling points give rise to interference effects that are not present in quantum optics with ordinary, small atoms.

The study of giant atoms is still in its infancy. There are many phenomena in quantum optics that need to be revisited for giant atoms, to see whether the added interference effects give rise to new physics. The goal of the PhD project is to find one or more such areas where giant atoms make a difference. Thanks to our collaborations with experimentalists at Chalmers and MIT, there will be excellent opportunities have interesting findings tested in experiment.

At the Applied Quantum Physics Laboratory (AQP lab), we work on theoretical aspects of future high-performance nano-electronic systems. Our research covers a broad spectrum, from fundamental problems to very applied ones. We work in close collaboration with the experimental groups, especially within the Wallenberg Centre for Quantum Technology (WACQT), which is a 10-year, 1-billion SEK effort to advance quantum technology in Sweden and build a quantum computer at Chalmers. Our major research interests cover quantum information processing with superconducting electronics, mesoscopic superconductivity and transport in nanostructures, molecular electronics, and graphene electronics.

Major responsibilities
The main responsibilities of a PhD student at Chalmers consist in pursuing doctoral studies by conducting research within your project, in collaboration and independently, leading to results that you will publish in journals and present at meetings and conferences. Your studies also include coursework in your field and common core courses on generic and transferable skills. The position generally also includes teaching on the undergraduate level or other duties corresponding to up to 20 per cent of working hours.

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

Qualifications
Required:
*MSc in Physics, or equivalent
*Excellent communication skills in written and spoken English

Desired:
*Experience from working on quantum optics

Information about the project
We are offering a position as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the field of active flow control for drag reduction utilising artifical intelligence/machine learning. The objective is to design innovative techniques to control the flow over the superstructure of ships in order to maximise the aerodynamic performance of the vessel and reduce the total energy consumption and improve vessel comfort and safety. Previous projects have shown both that the flow over a ship like structure may be complex and difficult to control, but also that machine learning algorithms are a promising way to overcome this challenge.

To achieve this objective, several components are necessary to master. The flow around generic ship models will be further studied using scale resolved CFD (PANS and LES) as well as experiments at Chalmers Flow Laboratory. Flow control algorithms, using both passive and active systems, should be developed that are effective in a range of flow conditions for the vessel; here, machine learning/AI will be used in the design of the control system. The aim of your research project will be to develop new flexible and efficient ML schemes for active flow control that can improve aerodynamics performance of ships.

The project is a cooperative project between Prof Sinisa Krajnovic and Prof Rickard Bensow at the divisions of Fluid dynamics and Marine Technology respectively.

You are expected to develop your own scientific ideas and concepts, and to communicate the results of your research verbally and in writing. You will be guided by senior researchers at the involved department. Your major responsibility as postdoc is to perform your own research in the research group. The position may also include teaching on undergraduate and master’s levels as well as supervising master’s and/or PhD students to a certain extent. The position is meritorious for future research duties within academia as well as industry/the public sector.

Position summary
The position is full-time temporary employment. It is limited to a maximum of two years, starting with a one-year employment, followed by an evaluation, if the work is proceeding sufficiently well the employment will be extended for a second year.

Qualifications
To qualify as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the current project, you must have a PhD degree in a relevant field and not older than three years. You like to work independently and you plan and think strategically. You are creative and like to put new ideas into practice. You have a solid interest in fluid dynamics, and an ability to perform both experimental and simulation work of high quality. You like to work in interdisciplinary projects and you have the ability to discuss and communicate your work with people of different backgrounds.
