PhD student position in time-resolved spectroscopy on proton- and hydride-ion conducting perovskites for energy applications

HR_Kollage_15_600x150px.jpg

Information about the research/the project/the division
The PhD student will join the dynamic research group of Professor Maths Karlsson at the Energy and Materials Division of the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at Chalmers. Our research, within the field of experimental materials science, focuses on investigations of key fundamental properties of atomic-scale structure and dynamics of energy relevant materials, such as ionic conductors and luminescent materials, with a view towards their application in present-day and future energy technologies (e.g., fuel cells, batteries, hydrogen storage, solar cells, and white light emitting diodes).

For further information about our research group, please see our poster describing some of our research

https://www.chalmers.se/SiteCollectionImages/Energi%20och%20%20material/Maths%20forskning3.png

Major responsibilities
Proton- and hydride-ion conducting oxides show promise as electrolytic materials for several emerging energy technologies, such as fuel cells, batteries, hydrogen sensors, and for catalytic processes. However, a too low conductivity renders them impractical for applications. The development of new, better materials depends on a fundamental understanding of the ion (i.e. proton or hydride-ion) conductivity mechanism, but such an understanding is lacking. This PhD project aims to develop a thorough understanding of the conductivity mechanism underpinning both proton- and hydride-ion conducting oxides (both bulk and thin films). More specifically, the aim is to unravel the coupling between vibrational dynamics of the H species and of the oxide host lattice and how they relate to H transport. This will allow for the development of design criteria for new materials with certain levels of proton or hydride-ion conductivity towards the application of these materials in specific applications.The primary tools to this end will involve the use of advanced time-resolved (pump and probe) spectroscopy techniques based on X-rays, UV, and infrared (IR) light, which are available at international large-scale facilities and in our own laboratories at Chalmers. Additionally, the student will perform computer simulations of key structural and vibrational properties, such as vibrational relaxation mechanisms and possible H diffusion pathways, to model the experimental data as well as to guide future experiments. The research program is further supported by the collaboration with both experimental and theoretical groups, with complementary expertise and/or infrastructure of importance for the project. This PhD position offers an exceptional opportunity to perform top notch basic research in a very important and timely research field related to the development of next-generation energy technologies, using state-of-the-art techniques at large-scale photon sources, and in close collaboration with leading experimental and theoretical research groups.  

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, both in Swedish and in English. The position generally also includes teaching on Chalmers’ undergraduate level or performing other duties corresponding to 10 per cent of working hours.

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

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 (Physics, Chemistry, or Materials Science), or you expect to complete your MSc education at the latest in September 2020. To be successful, you have to be highly motivated, self-propelled and have a high analytical ability. As the student will spend a significant period of time at international large-scale facilities (several experiments a year and attend international conferences, it is important that he/she has a flexible approach towards travelling. The position also requires sound verbal and written communication skills in English. Experience in advanced optical spectroscopy techniques is an asset.

12_ChalmersGU.png


The department of Computer Science and Engineering is strongly international, with approximately 270 employees from over 30 countries. The department is a fully integrated department with the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology as principals. The position is placed in the Formal Methods Division at the department, with the University of Gothenburg as the employer.

Job assignments
Third-cycle studies are equivalent to four year full-time and lead to a Degree of Doctor. Those appointed to doctoral studentships shall primarily devote themselves to their studies. Those appointed to doctoral studentships may, however, work to a limited extent with educational tasks, research and administration. Before a PhD degree has been awarded, duties of this kind may not comprise more than 20 per cent of a full-time post.

The candidate will work on the project “X-LEGAL: Smart Legal Contracts” financed by the Swedish Research Council (VR) which aims at legal automation, by integrating two notions of “contracts”: legal contracts, i.e., legally binding normative documents establishing mutual agreements between competent and freely participating parties, and “smart contracts”, computer programs executed in the blockchain.

More concretely, we will define a structured restricted version of English (a “controlled natural language” – CNL) in order to express unambiguous legal contracts understandable by non-technical persons. The CNL will be readable and have legal value while at the same time being amenable to queries by the involved parties, and to translation into a (modelling) and programming language. The latter will be a smart contract language, which will be compiled into the blockchain as to be executed. Both the CNL as well as our smart contract language will have reasoning systems in order to make queries and prove properties to increase confidence in their correctness (both from the contractual as well as from the operational point of view).

Eligibility
To be eligible for third-cycle studies, the applicant must meet both the general and, where applicable, specific entry requirements.

A person meets the general entry requirements for third-cycle studies if he or she:
1. has been awarded a second-cycle qualification
2. has satisfied the requirements for courses comprising at least 240 credits of which at least 60 credits were awarded in the second-cycle, or
3. has acquired substantially equivalent knowledge in some other way in Sweden or abroad

Assessment
In selecting between applicants who meet the general and, where applicable specific entry requirements, their ability to benefit from third-cycle studies shall be taken into account.

Employment
After admission to third-cycle studies you will be appointed to doctoral studentship. Regulations for employment of doctoral students are given in SFS 1993:100. The initial appointment may apply for no longer than one year. An appointment may be renewed for no more than two years at a time.

Marie Curie project – PhD student in Computational Interaction Models for Automated Driving

HR_Kollage_14_600x150px.jpg

Information about the project
We are offering a position as a PhD student in the field of modelling road user behaviour in interaction with automated vehicles. This position is one of 15 PhD-students to be recruited across six universities in Europe to be part of a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action (MSCA) Innovative Training Network (ITN), funded by the European Commission.

This position is part of the Crash Analysis and Prevention (CAP) unit within the Vehicle Safety division (Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences). In the Vehicle Safety division and CAP, researchers conduct world-leading research on topics related to traffic safety. The mission of the unit is to understand why crashes happen and how they can be prevented. This includes understanding crash causation mechanisms related to the road-user behavior as well as (e.g., automated) vehicle and environment factors. We leverage on a deep understanding of these strategies to build effective driver support, active safety, and vehicle automation. We evaluate these strategies using conceptual and mathematical models developed with naturalistic and experimental data. The research group has strong ties to the Swedish automotive industry and participates in national and international projects (EU, US and Japan).

We teach courses in the master’s program in Automotive Engineering at Chalmers University on both the technical and behavioral aspects of traffic safety, active safety systems, and vehicle automation. Student projects at the Master’s and Doctoral level are also conducted at CAP.

The overall goal of this 15 student PhD-project, called SHAPE-IT, is to enable rapid and reliable development of safe and user-centered automated vehicles (AVs) for urban environments. Vehicle automation has been identified as a game-changer in transport, promising substantial reductions in road-traffic fatalities while improving mobility. However, the processes to integrate automation in transport have been primarily technology-focused, with insufficient consideration given to how users both inside and outside of the AVs will interact with AVs.

The main objective of SHAPE-IT is to facilitate the safe, acceptable (and, ideally, desirable) integration of user-centered and transparent AVs into tomorrow’s mixed urban traffic environments, using both existing and new research methods, designing advanced interfaces and control strategies.

The project aims to deliver a future generation of human factors researchers and engineers with an excellent multidisciplinary (cognitive and behavioral psychology, computer science, and engineering) education.

Specifically, this PhD candidate will expand previous research within CAP on modelling for road-user interaction. Building on state-of-the-art methods for modelling human behaviour, this PhD candidate will investigate how cyclists communicate their intentions in traffic, and which cues they use to predict the behaviour of other road-users and to communicate their intent. This will include modelling cyclist behaviour, to enable AVs to predict cyclist intent, enabling AVs to meet human expectations and not transgressing human comfort boundaries.

The research will be conducted in close collaboration both with the other 14 PhD students in the SHAPE-IT project, and with senior researchers at Chalmers and the other universities involved in SHAPE-IT. The position includes 2-3 longer (1-3 months long) secondments/visits to both industry and other universities. During SHAPE-IT all 15 PhD candidates will join several project wide training activities, covering multiple aspects of the design and assessment of automated vehicles, including human factors and artificial intelligence, in the context of automated vehicles1.

We strongly encourage female applicants to all of these multi-disciplinary research positions, where working together and sharing knowledge and experience across a diverse group of people is fundamental to reach the project goals to build a future of safe and trusted vehicle automation in cities.

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 (primarily in English, but at the end of your studies, also at least orally in Swedish). Your research will be supervised by well-reputed senior researchers at the involved department. The PhD studies also includes a number of doctoral courses, reviewing literature, interacting with both industrial companies and other PhD-candidates and senior researchers in the SHAPE-IT project, as well as analysing empirical data, and modeling and using models of human behavior.

As part of SHAPE-IT you are expected to collaborate with other PhD-students in the project, and providing project level training for the other PhD-students on safety assessment methods.

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

Position summary
The position is a full-time temporary employment limited to a maximum of 4.5 years.

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. The position requires sound verbal and written communication skills in English.

The applicants must, at the date of recruitment, be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers (counted from being awarded the MSc degree) and have not been awarded a doctoral degree.

A suitable applicant should be able to work independently, be creative, and look at technical issues as an opportunity to learn new skills. You should have an interest in human behavior and modelling, be a proficient programmer, be able to collaborate and work in a multidisciplinary and international environment. We look for an open minded, self-driven candidate with excellent analytical abilities and a passion for understanding how human behaviour and technology work together.

A Bachelor or Master thesis including courses in any of the following areas is meritorious: statistics, active safety, human behavior modelling, crash analysis. It is meritorious with programming skills in multiple languages, experience in developing systems based on single board computers, experience from cycling safety projects.

Chalmers continuously strives to be an attractive employer. Equality and diversity are substantial foundations in all activities at Chalmers.

Postdoctoral position in Machine Learning Driven Air Flow Control for Reduced Drag of Ships

HR_Kollage_14_600x150px.jpg

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. The research in these groups is related to turbulent flows in vehicle design on land and in water with a well established international network. It is also expected that the people working in the project will collaborate with other AI researcher at Chalmers AI competence center CHAIR.

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.

Information about the Research Project
We are looking for a highly motivated postdoc who will model reactions using micro-kinetics and/or kinetic Monte-Carlo methods, coupled with species transport equations, to predict catalytic output. The modelling shall account for the characteristics of the rarefied gas flow (velocity and pressure) through the dedicated nanofabricated reactor. The fundamental scientific questions that need to be addressed are primarily related to the nature and role of the flow-chemistry coupling  in nanoscale reactive systems.

The project will be part of a larger research program that involves several other research groups at the Chemistry and Physics Departments of Chalmers. The overall goal of the project “Single Particle Catalysis in Nanoreactors” is to further push our understanding of catalytic reaction to the single particle level.

As a postdoc in this project, you will be working at the Division of Chemical Physics, and in close collaboration with the Division of Fluid Dynamics. Working as a postdoc requires a great deal of creativity and ability to think “outside the box”. Furthermore, as the current project involves close cooperation with theoretical and experimental partners at two divisions, collaborative and communicative skills are essential.
