Post Doc in the growth and diffusion of technologies and infrastructures


What is the potential for new and emerging technologies and infrastructures such as negative emissions technologies and hydrogen to contribute to to the energy transition? A post-doc position tackles this question as part of a broader research agenda on understanding the feasibility of climate action. The post-doc will focus on analyzing this questions through a combination of empirical research, statistical analysis, and computational experiments. The researcher will be part of the POLET research group with wide international collaboration.

Information about the divison and the research
The Department of Space, Earth and Environment
contains five divisions, with research and education spanning from global challenges related to sustainability and energy supply to astronomy and space sciences. The department is host to two major infrastructures, Onsala Space Observatory and Chalmers Power Central, and consist of about 250 employees.

The division of Physical Resource Theory conducts research and provides education on solutions to major environmental challenges such as global warming and sustainable land use. Our research is challenge-driven and interdisciplinary building on both technical and social sciences and using a range of quantitative and qualtitative methods. The division has around 50 staff members, faculty and PhD-students with diverse expertise, including engineers, natural and social scientists.

The POLET Research Group works on the feasibility of climate action and speed of energy transitions with partners at Chalmers University, Lund University, University of Bergen, and Central European University. Technologies needed to decarbonize the electricity system are already commercially available. Yet while we know how to solve climate change in mathematical models, it’s an open question whether this can be done in the real world given the socio-political and technological constraints in different countries and regions. The POLET group on the political economy of energy transitions seeks to answer this question by exploring the actors and contexts of energy transitions and combining knowledge on the socio-technical, political and techno-economic mechanisms that shape energy transitions.

Currently, we are recruiting one Post-Doctoral position to examine potential growth paths for new and emerging technologies and infrastructures to support the low-carbon transitions. In particular, we aim to understand how technological characteristics shape the growth phases of large technologies with insights from historical technological analogues.

The position is part of an ERC Starting Grant project (MANIFEST) which focuses on cross-national differences in feasibility of energy transitions as well as on its temporal dimension and therefore involves comparative and longitudinal analysis. It also contributes to the MISTRA Electrification which works on understanding the non-technical feasibility constraints to rapid electrification and decarbonization in Northern Europe.

Major responsibilities
Your major responsibility as postdoc is to perform your own research in a research group. You will examine potential growth paths for new and emerging technologies to support the low-carbon transitions. The position may also include teaching up to 20%. 

Qualifications
You must hold a PhD degree in engineering, technology studies, sustainability, or related fields of natural and social science with a specialization in technology assessment, energy systems analysis, or energy transitions at the graduate level, awarded no more than three years prior to the application deadline (according to the current agreement with the Swedish Agency for Government Employers). Proven experience with data analysis and programming (e.g. python or R) is also a must. Experience of writing in English with a strong motivation and commitment to scientific inquiry.

The position requires sound verbal and written communication skills in English. Swedish is not a requirement but Chalmers offers Swedish courses.

Contract terms
This postdoc position is a full-time temporary employment for two years, with possibility of extension. Start date November, 2022 (negotiable).

Recently, an umbrella notion of quantum materials has emerged. It encompasses condensed matter systems with emergent electronic properties, either because of strong correlations or topological order. The emergence may be inherent to the material itself, for instance high-temperature superconductors, or engineered through nano technology into heterostructures between different materials. Our own expertise lies in self-consistent studies of unconventional superconductors applied to describing their thermodynamic ground state, transport properties such as charge and heat conductivities, describing tunnelling probes, vortex states and mesoscopic devices. We are curiosity driven and we connect our efforts to ongoing relevant experimental and theoretical activities at Chalmers and elsewhere.

Within this project we will develop theoretical methods and numerical algorithms to study complex order and transport in quantum matter and low-dimensional strongly correlated electron systems. The focus for this postdoc position is to work in close collaboration with the experimental groups of Yasmine Sassa, Attila Geresdi and Saroj Dash at Chalmers and to provide theoretical support and modelling of quantum skyrmions. Together we propose to investigate magnetic materials exhibiting skyrmion ordering. We will focus on two key breakthroughs:
• Strong coupling between a planar skyrmion lattice and a superconducting resonator.
• Individual coherent control and readout of a single skyrmion.

Two postdoc positions on the experimental aspects of this project are also open for applications (see here and here).

Information about the department 
At the division Applied Quantum Physics Laboratory (AQP lab) at the department of microtechnology and nanoscience (MC2), we work on theoretical aspects of future high-performance nano-electronic systems. Our research covers a broad spectrum of problems, everything from the fundamental problems to the very applied ones.
We work in close collaboration with experimental groups, both at MC2 and at other universities. Our major research interests cover quantum information processing with superconducting electronics, mesoscopic superconductivity and transport in nanostructures, and graphene and other 2D materials.

The MC2 Department houses a state-of-the-art Nanofabrication Laboratory cleanroom facility. The QDP/QT Labs has the most modern equipment for experiments at low temperatures (millikelvins) and with microwaves.

Major responsibilities
This postdoc position is aimed at theoretical modeling of quantum materials and devices. The work will be performed mainly in a theory team and in close collaboration with experimental work at Chalmers.

Qualifications
To qualify for this position you must hold a PhD in Physics, Applied Physics, Theoretical Physics or equivalent, awarded no more than three years prior to the application deadline (according to the current agreement with the Swedish Agency for Government Employers).

Desired qualifications:
* Documented supervision skills are a merit.
* Experience of developing new solution strategies in the description of quantum materials and quantum devices.

Contract terms
This postdoc position is a full-time temporary employment for two years.

PhD student position in energy and environmental systems analysis of hydrogen for transport


We invite applicants to join our team of researchers within the area of environmental and energy systems analysis focusing on the transition towards a sustainable transport sector. This PhD position allows you to work within the rapidly developing scientific area of hydrogen technology. It gives you the potential to develop a strong research profile collaborating across several interrelated PhD and postdoc projects within the new competence centre Technologies and innovations for a future sustainable hydrogen economy (TechForH2).

Information about the research and the divisionOur research aims to provide long-term, and most often global, perspectives on future renewable fuels for transport. We seek to rigorously analyze the feasibility of energy transitions, utilize empirical as well as estimated data, and explore whether and under what conditions changes can occur as well as the cost-effectiveness and environmental effects of such changes. Research tools include techno-economic assessments, life cycle assessment, and cost-minimizing models where all energy sectors compete for the same primary energy sources in a future carbon constrained world. Currently, we have a special interest in the role of hydrogen and electrofuels (fuels produced by combining energy from electricity, hydrogen from water via electrolysis, and carbon, or possibly nitrogen, into liquid or gaseous hydrogen-containing end-fuels) in the fuel mix, meeting ambitious climate targets.

To meet future climate targets, aviation, and shipping as well as road transport need to reduce their climate impact. The use of renewable fuels needs to increase for all transport modes. Biomass-based fuels, electrification, hydrogen and electrofuels are being developed for different parts of the transport sector.

The research within the position will focus on answering the following over-arching question: what are the potential roles of hydrogen in achieving cost-effective, energy efficient and sustainable transport? This question is part of an even broader research agenda on understanding the feasibility of climate mitigation targets.

For hydrogen, storage and distribution represent challenges. Your initial task will be to develop a European model for hydrogen infrastructure requirements. The model will develop different future European hydrogen demand scenarios by modelling cost, efficiency, small scale versus large scale hydrogen production, tank stations/bunker terminals etc. Results from this model will be used as input data to the Global Energy Transition (GET) model and other existing models, developed and used by researchers at Chalmers.

The Global Energy Transition (GET) model is a cost minimizing “bottom-up” systems engineering model of the global energy system used in our team. It can be used to study carbon mitigation strategies while minimizing the discounted total energy systems cost for the period under study. The model focuses on the supply side and has five end use sectors: electricity, transport, feedstock, residential -commercial heat and industrial process heat, and generates fuel mix scenarios, for different transport modes, that meets the modeled constraints at lowest cost.

The position will be hosted by the unit of Maritime Environmental Sciences at the department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences. Our research team, presently consisting of three senior researchers, three PhD students, and two postdocs, is embedded in an interdisciplinary environment where we have close collaboration with other research teams at Chalmers such as technology experts, systems engineers, natural and social scientists carrying out research on solutions to major environmental challenges. We also collaborate with international organizations within academia and industry.

Major responsibilities

You are expected to develop your own scientific concepts and communicate the results of your research, both orally and in writing, in English. Your research will be supervised by well-reputed senior researchers at the unit Maritime Environmental Sciences at the department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences. Your work as PhD student is performed in collaboration with researchers, industry professionals, and other PhD students. The position is part of the competence centre TechForH2 focusing on hydrogen for transport in which several PhD students and postdocs will be engaged. More than 90% of your time will be dedicated to research and doctoral courses required for obtaining a PhD, which include reviewing literature, participating in the design of research studies, interacting with companies and authorities, collecting and analysing empirical data, and disseminating research results in scientific journals and reports as well as to industry and public.

The position generally also includes teaching on Chalmers’ undergraduate level or performing other department duties corresponding to up to 10% of working hours. 

Qualifications

Knowledge of alternative transport fuels is beneficial. You are, further, expected to have excellent oral and written communication skills in English and strong commitment to scientific inquiry.

We are looking for a motivated and independent researcher with good analytical skills who is interested in the transport sector transition, interdisciplinary research with a holistic systems perspective. We also believe that you have a strong curiosity and a genuine wish to learn more and develop your skills and knowledge further in the fields of research, research communication and project management.

Post Doc in the economics and speed of energy transitions


How will the economics of energy technologies shape the unfolding energy transition? What is the role of the cost of technologies, policies and other factors in shaping the profitability of renewable technologies? A new post-doc position tackles these questions as part of a broader research agenda on understanding the feasibility of climate action. The candidate will focus on analyzing these questions through a combination of empirical research, statistical analysis, and computational experiments. The researcher will be part of the POLET research group with wide international collaboration.

Information about the division and the research The Department of Space, Earth and Environment contains five divisions, with research and education spanning from global challenges related to sustainability and energy supply to astronomy and space sciences. The department is host to two major infrastructures, Onsala Space Observatory and Chalmers Power Central, and consists of about 250 employees.

The Division of Physical Resource Theory conducts research and provides education on solutions to major environmental challenges such as global warming and sustainable land use. Our research is challenge-driven and interdisciplinary building on both technical and social sciences and using a range of quantitative and qualtitative methods. The division has around 50 staff members, faculty and PhD-students with diverse expertise, including engineers, natural and social scientists.

The POLET Research Group works on the feasibility of climate action and speed of energy transitions with partners at Chalmers University, Lund University, University of Bergen, and Central European University. The Technologies needed to decarbonize the electricity system are already commercially available. Yet while we know how to solve climate change in mathematical models, it’s an open question whether this can be done in the real world given the socio-political and technological constraints in different countries and regions. The POLET group on the political economy of energy transitions seeks to answer this question by exploring the actors and contexts of energy transitions and combining knowledge on the socio-technical, political and techno-economic mechanisms that shape energy transitions.

Currently, we are recruiting a Post-Doctoral candidate to examine how the economics of energy technologies shape their growth. In particular, how is solar and wind growth shaped by investment, profitability, and policy support in different countries?

The position is part of an ERC Starting Grant project (MANIFEST) which focuses on cross-national differences in feasibility of energy transitions as well as on its temporal dimension and therefore involves comparative and longitudinal analysis. It also contributes to the MISTRA Electrification project which works on understanding the non-technical feasibility constraints to rapid electrification and decarbonization in Northern Europe.

Major responsibilities
Your major responsibility as postdoc is to perform your own research in a research group. You will explore how the economics of energy technologies shape their growth. The position may also include teaching up to 20%. 

Qualifications
To qualify for this postion, you must hold a PhD degree in economics, environmental science, sustainability, or related fields of natural and social science with a specialization in energy systems analysis, energy modelling, or energy transitions at the graduate level is mandatory, awarded no more than three years prior to the application deadline (according to the current agreement with the Swedish Agency for Government Employers).

PhD student in Energy system analysis


Information about the project
The successful candidate will work in the project “Logging of electric vehicles – characterization of charging patterns and grid impacts ” with the aim to increase the understanding of charging and driving patterns of electric vehicles (EVs) and use the new knowledge to investigate how EV charging can contribute to flexibiity in the electricity system.

The PhD position on offer will join a team of senior researchers, postdocs and PhD students dedicated to research with the aim to identify and evaluate different pathways toward sustainable energy and transport systems. In the project charging and driving data will be collected and analysed from 360 randomly chosen EV owners in Sweden. The PhD project is unique in terms of the number of electric vehicles being logged and that these are distributed geographically across Sweden. The PhD position will analyze capacity limitations in the local electricity grid when adding EV charging using the collected data together with analysing how the battery capacity is affected by the charging pattern from the different EVs. The PhD work will also develop and apply energy systems and power systems modeling to analyse how a strong ramp-up of electric vehicles can be integrated in the electricity system and the electric grid. These modeling builds on models which have been developed over several years within the research group at Energy Technology.

PhD student position in in Systems Engineering Design


Information about the division and the research 
The Systems Engineering Design Group, one of three research groups at the division of Product Development, and part of the Wingquist Laboratory focus our research on design and development of complex products in close collaboration with industrial partners, nationally and internationally. Topics include development methodologies such as Set Based Concurrent Engineering and Knowledge Engineering, development of methods and tools for platform based development and value driven design. The resesearch group is led by Professor Ola Isaksson and has presently 7 full time senior staff (2 professors) and 9 PhD students. The research team addresses highly interdisciplinary research problems and is well established both scientifically and industrially.

-The details of the departmental research activities may be found here.

Major responsibilities
We seek to strengthen the group in the areas of Digital Twin Driven Design of novel and radical technologies and solutions. Product development, especially in the space industry, needs to explore a large variety of design concepts, and to identify the most robust design alternative. However, exploring and predicting the performances of many different designs through physical testing is a very costly approach.

As a PhD student you will learn and develop new methods and tools for exploiting the results from physical testing in digital models, as a means to reuse the results from physical testing to validate new designs and their ranges of validity. You are expected to develop your own scientific concepts and communicate the results of your research verbally and in writing, both in Swedish and in English. 

The methods and tools are a part of building next generation digital design and engineering capabilities (exploiting AI and Machile Learning) for product development, targeting a wider and faster exploration of the design space.
 
Qualifications
To qualify as a PhD student, you must have a master’s level degree corresponding to at least 240 higher education credits in mechanical engineering, automation, applied mechanics, aerospace engineering, applied physics, or similar.

Interest in applied, industrial, product development, along with a strong interest in modelling, simulation and computational methods and tools. Good written and oral communication skills in English is required, and in Swedish meriting. We believe that you are curious and open for interdisciplinary challenges, collaborative oriented both with academic and industrial colleauges. You possess a passion for combining theory and practice.

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

Meritorious: 
– Good written and oral communication skills in Swedish.
– Knowledge in Data Analytics and Machine Learning and AI methods, combined with knowledge in statistical software (e.g., JMP) and ML/AI software platforms (e.g. TensorFlow).

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