PhD student position in Computational Sustainable Design

The Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering has about 290 employees encompassing a broad theoretical knowledge base, from engineering science to the social sciences to the humanities, as well as design-based, artistic research. The combination of all of these perspectives allows for great interdisciplinary advancement in the field and a broader discussion of various aspects of sustainability. Together, we provide a comprehensive environment for architecture and civil engineering, well equipped to take on the common challenges of building a sustainable future.


Information about the research
The built environment is central to the reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and resource consumption and the building sector is one of the least digitalised of all sectors. Furthermore, the built environment has a big influence on people’s wellbeing and social interactions. However, in early design phases, little information is available and decisions are mostly guided by intuition. Therefore, the newly established research stream Computational Design within the research group Sustainable building focusses especially on digital approaches to support the early design phases of sustainable buildings and cities.

The PhD project will be part of the research stream Computational Sustainable Design. The objective is to propose novel, digital solutions that support different stakeholders to take well-informed decisions in the most influential early design stages. Research topics include quantitative and qualitative methods for sustainability assessment, application of optimisation algorithms, and machine learning, amongst others. Furthermore, the interactions in virtual design environments, both between computers and humans but also between different human stakeholders, such as architects, engineers, clients and future users could be included. Finally, the objective is to implement the newly developed methods in digital tools and test them with stakeholders in real projects. The research builds on previous projects and knowledge within the research group.

The Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering (ACE) represents a broad field of knowledge theory ranging from natural sciences and engineering to social sciences, humanities and design-based artistic research. These different perspectives enable strong interdisciplinary development and a broad research approach to different aspects of sustainability.

Major responsibilities
The successful candidate for this position has the qualifications and abilities to contribute to the research area of Computational Sustainable Design on an international level. A major part of the work includes developing novel methods and implementing these in tools. Benefits of novel digital methods will ultimately be tested with stakeholders in real-life projects. Interdisciplinary collaboration with other PhD students and labs at Chalmers, such as Virtual City@Chalmers or the BIM lab as well as external partners is expected. The position may include teaching or other departmental duties up to a maximum of 20%.

Position summary
You will be employed by Chalmers on a full-time temporary contract. The employment is limited to four years’ effective time on the PhD project, plus additional time spent on teaching and other departmental duties up to a maximum of five years. The employment is tied to successful progress of the doctoral studies, as evaluated throughout the project.

Qualifications
Applicants should have a Master’s degree in Architecture, Engineering, Computer science or a similar field, preferably with a strong interest in sustainability and digitalisation of the design process of the built environment. We are seeking an innovative, self-motivated candidate with brilliant analytic and computational skills, who will be able to work independently in interdisciplinary teams and pursue new ways for digital design solutions. Expertise in programming, computational design and software development are therefore  important. The position requires excellent verbal and written communication skills in English. The person assigned to the position is expected to acquire sufficient knowledge to be able to communicate in Swedish in two years. As important merits will be considered design skills and expert knowledge of digital tools such as Grasshopper/Rhino or Dynamo/Revit and common formats in the built environment, e.g. IFC, gbXML, cityGML, etc.

You are expected to take initiatives and take responsibility for your work. Furthermore, the project interacts closely with adjacent disciplines and industrial partners. Thus you need to have significant collaborative skills. Finally, you need to be able to disseminate results and knowledge within existing and new networks. This includes academia, industry and society at large.

Information about the research
Embodied Artificial Intelligence is a multidisciplinary area that requires the cooperation of different fields such as computer science, engineering, robotics and dynamical systems. This PhD thesis will develop a novel learning algorithm to allow high-level intelligence, such as problem-solving and reasoning to be applied to real-world physical systems, e.g. robots. Mainly, this work will be focused on investigating learning methods on the semantic aspects of intelligence to develop general purpose solutions for robotic applications.

The goal of this PhD thesis is to develop compact and flexible model representations to allow robots the transference of their past experiences to current situations. These compact models should be human-readable to provide adequate feedback to the person interacting with the intelligent agent, e.g. a robot. This feedback should provide information to users, in an efficient form, about possible hazardous situations and potential errors, by predicting ahead-of-time the actions performed by either a human or a robot to infer their potential consequences. Thus, the communication between the users and the robots should be meaningful and bi-directional.

The position is with the Mechatronics group at Chalmers, where a team of PhD students, post-docs and senior researchers is working on semantic-based methods and advanced decision-making algorithms in the area of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics. The group is a part of the Department of Electrical Engineering (E2), which to a large extent deals with the modeling and development of efficient systems for extracting and processing information.

Major responsibilities
Your main responsibility as a PhD student is to pursue your own scientific studies and to develop your abilities and knowledge within the research fields covered by the project. You are expected to develop your own scientific concepts and communicate the results of your research verbally at scientific conferences and in written journal articles. The position also includes certain departmental duties, typically in form of teaching, corresponding to about 20% of working hours.

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

Qualifications
By the starting date, the applicant should have a Master of Science degree or equivalent in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Applied Math or in a related discipline. A successful applicant should have a strong background in machine learning methods and robotics as well as be familiar with reasoning methods and tools. Programming skills in C++ are strongly required and knowledge in ROS (Robot Operating System), Python, Unity, and Prolog are welcome. A genuine interest and curiosity in the subject, excellent oral and written English communication skills are needed.

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.

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.

Information about the project

Human-robot collaboration is one of the most promising applications of autonomous robots. For this, robots need to interact with humans in a meaningful, flexible and adaptable manner, especially when new situations are faced.  Currently, the new emerging technologies such as virtual reality and wearable devices allow capturing natural human movements of multiple users. Then, the next generation of learning methods should take advantage of and bootstrap the learning of new activities by adapting to the massive processing of information obtained from these enhanced sensors.

The goal of this PhD project is to develop semantic-based learning algorithms able to cope with a large amount of data generated from multi-modal/multi-level sensors and react to dynamically changing environments in real-time to produce robots with enhanced autonomy levels and manipulation capabilities. The massive collection of data will also contain information about the different styles of human demonstrations which will help in developing a more human-centred control solution.

The position is with the Mechatronics group at Chalmers, where a team of PhD students, post-docs and senior researchers is working on semantic-based methods and advanced decision-making algorithms in the area of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Robotics. The group is a part of the Department of Electrical Engineering (E2), which to a large extent deals with the modeling and development of efficient systems for extracting and processing information. For more information on E2, see also www.chalmers.se/E2/.
