The topic of the project concerns behavioral modelling of bicyclists in the transport network with particular focus on long-distance and e-bicyclists preferences. Cities all over the world are currently investing in bicycle infrastructure. However, bicyclists are generally under-prioritized or completely overlooked in strategic transport models used in city-level mobility planning, which makes it difficult to prioritize funding for bicycle transport and adapt the network to different types of bicycle users. This project seeks to improve the methodological progress, digital networks and real-life observations relevant for the modelling of bicyclists as this is far from as developed as other transport modes, e.g. cars and public transport.

Responsibilities and tasks
The aim of the project is to develop state-of-the-art behavioral realistic route choice models for bicyclists, which at a detailed level takes into account both network characteristics, individual characteristics and bicycle type as well as temporal variations such as weather and bicyclists stress level (e.g. from congestion).

The project is part of a larger project regarding cyclist’s behavior with focus on long-distance trips and e-bikes including also Israel Institute of Technology (Technion). The candidate will work closely together with the supervisory team and researches from Technion and will be take part in both data collection, preparation of digital road network characteristics, methodological development, modeling preparations such as alternative generation and in developing the final models.

During the project, we will give methodological contributions within digital network preparation, passive and active data collections, model preparation and by formulating a disaggregate theoretically well-explained model for bicyclists behavior. Specifically, the tasks for the candidate and the supervisory team include:

    Preparation of digital network characteristics, primarily GIS data for Tel-Aviv and Copenhagen which will serve as main digital infrastructure for the processing, analysis and modelling of cycling routes Collection of new long-distance and e-cycling data in Tel-Aviv and Copenhagen by using an application developed within the project and post processing of these data. Quantitative data analyses to model the effects of both network specific and individual specific factors on the bicyclist’s route choice with particular focus on individual characteristics and differences between short and long distance trips and conventional and e-bike users. Analyse and model how improved bicycle facilities may change mode choice and travel behavior in general Prepare manuscripts for high level journal publication

Qualifications
Candidates should have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree. The degree should be within Transportation Modelling, Applied Mathematics and Statistics, Data Science, Behavioural Studies, or related;

    Excellent background in statistics and probabilities is required Skills in geoprocessing tools, e.g. ArcMap is preferedExcellent programming/data management capabilities are preferable, e.g. in SAS, R or Python. Transportation modelling disciplines in the education background are preferable

PhD scholarship in Modelling Sustainable Maritime Fuels

The Energy System Analysis group at DTU Management invites highly motivated candidates to apply for the PhD position in Modelling sustainable maritime fuels. This is a 3-year scholarship. The project will build on recent research works and achievements in integrated energy systems and market-based flexibility management at DTU.

Maritime transport emits around 1000 million tons of CO2 annually and is responsible for about 3% of annual global greenhouse gas emissions. On 13/4-2018, the IMO’s Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) announced that its member state delegates have agreed on a target to cut the shipping sector’s overall CO2 output by 50% by 2050. On 4/12-2018 Maersk announced their net zero CO2 emission target by 2050. To realize the massive emission reductions targeted, ship propulsion must be based on carbon-neutral fuels. The question is which fuels to go for and to develop engine and storage solutions for. This depends on the potential fuel costs and availability, and the cost of retrofitting or new-building ships, which then can run on the various fuel alternatives. Mathematical modelling of energy systems will contribute to analyzing the current and potential future costs and availability of sustainable fuels.

Responsibilities and tasks
The objective of this PhD project is to analyse and compare future renewable maritime fuels by mathematical modelling of production and consumption. The tasks involve assessing potential availability and costs of sustainable maritime fuels including costs on ships. The PhD student will closely collaborate with industry partners of related projects, and other researchers.

The responsibilities and tasks associated with the position include:

    Active participation in the research environments at DTU; Develop models, algorithms, and methods; Present research results at project meetings, and international conferences/workshops; Publish research results in peer-reviewed scientific journals/conference proceedings; Contribute to teaching.

Qualifications
Candidates should have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree.

The ideal candidate should be holding a Master’s degree in Energy Engineering, Mathematical modelling or related fields. The successful candidate has strong analytical and problem-solving skills, is proactive, self-motivated with critical thinking. Strong programming skills are required, preferably in GAMS and Python.

PhD scholarship in Data-Driven Prediction of Added Resistance on Ships in Waves

DTU, Department of Mechanical Engineering has an open PhD position focused on data-driven prediction of added wave resistance on ships. The main objective is to develop a tool that combines machine learning algorithms and ship motion dynamics for accurate estimation of the added resistance on ships sailing in seaway. The present research project will be carried out in the maritime group of the Section of Fluid Mechanics, Coastal and Maritime Engineering. The research of the maritime group includes, among other topics, loads on and responses of ships sailing in waves, resistance and propulsion, sea state estimation, and risk and motion prediction; all with the main objective to improve safety and energy efficiency of ship designs and marine operations at sea.

Reducing emissions in shipping is a common goal for all stakeholders involved in the shipping process. This is reflected through, for instance, the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) developed by the International Maritime Organization that urges improvements in energy efficiency not only through design by use of more energy efficient machinery, equipment, and hull details, but also during operations at sea. Notably, speed reduction is an effective way to improve energy efficiency. As a consequence recent trends towards slow steaming have led to increased interest in the prediction of added wave resistance on merchant ships. This increasing interest relates to the fact that the added wave resistance plays a (much) more significant role, relative to the other resistance components, when the vessel’s advance speed is reduced. Reliable prediction, not to mention a proper understanding, of added wave resistance is therefore essential to ensure improved energy efficiency of ships sailing in waves. In the same context, as a result of regulations aimed at reducing installed engine power, the associated risk of designing under-powered ships is of key importance.

There is a large literature focused on theoretical approaches for the prediction of added wave resistance. However, it is generally accepted that added resistance is difficult to [theoretically] predict, regardless what [numerical] approach is taken, especially in short or oblique waves (Bertram, 2016). Furthermore, it is stated that accurate models for added power in waves only make sense if more accurate data for the ambient seaway is also obtained. In this view, it is relevant to study data-driven methods for the prediction of added wave resistance, while, at the same time, using the data for extracting information about the ambient seaway, referring to the on-site wave system.

Responsibilities and tasks
This project should study machine learning algorithms for predicting the added wave resistance on a ship sailing in a seaway; without restrictions on the operational and/or environmental conditions. As a byproduct, the project is expected to develop a data-driven method to estimate the wave system characterizing the seaway. Mathematically, the solutions to the two developments are independent, but, due to the nature of the governing physics, the solutions are physically interrelated. Hence, the solution to the former will complement the latter, and vice versa. Overall, the project thus aims to develop a tool for reliable prediction of added wave resistance; hence, making the project’s expected results important for shipping companies in their drive towards reducing CO2 emissions and fuel consumption.

There is no (single) sensor that can measure the added wave resistance and neither is there one that can measure the seaway. However, from a physical point-of-view, most of the measured signals on a ship, e.g., shaft torque, shaft RPM, rudder angle, speed-through-water, wave-induced motions and accelerations, hull girder flexure, are directly affected by the seaway which in turn affects the added wave resistance. In other words, there exist correlations among the signals, where some of the correlations are theoretically well-known and observable while other correlations are physically evident but without any known theoretical explanations, and yet there may be unknown hidden correlations, since their structure and mutual dependence are not observable from a limited amount of data. Usually, means for the prediction of added wave resistance are purely model-based, as are the procedures for the estimation of the seaway, although the latter procedures for estimating the seaway are combined with measurements. In contrast, this project will have prime focus on signal-based approaches using machine learning algorithms for the analysis of the measurements from some, or all, of the sensors introduced above.

Qualifications
Candidates should have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree.

The candidate must have a master’s degree in naval architecture, mechanical engineering or a related field, with a focus on ship motion dynamics. Candidates with a (strong) background in signal processing, sensor fusion, and data analytics will be prioritized.

PhD scholarship in Collaborative Container Terminal Optimization

Container terminals play a central role in the efficient distribution of goods. They are interface between the sea and the hinterland, and they are continuously pressured to improve their performance. This pressure is particularly high for container terminals handling international trade, where large and larger vessels are deployed to exploit economy of scale. The focus of this PhD scholarship is the study of planning synergies among a group of collaborating terminals. We will, in particular, look at how berthing operation can be improved when multiple terminals are planned at the same time.

The academic literature presents an indication that such collaborative planning results in overall improved operations. We will be studying what amount of data the terminals will need to share, and consequently identify operational research methods to provide decision support for the planners. In collaboration with the industry, the project will demonstrate the quantified planning improvements on real data, thus bridging the gap between academia and industry.

Responsibilities and tasks
Are you hard working, interested in mathematical modelling, heuristic implementation, and do you enjoy solving difficult puzzles? The you might be the candidate we are looking for!

PhD scholarship in Hyperpolarization of Water for Angiography and Perfusion

Hyperpolarized Magnetic Resonance is a new medical imaging modality with great potential. The method is enabled by the more than 100,000-fold enhancement of the signal from nuclear spins. It offers the possibility of studying disease at the biochemical level, allowing more accurate diagnosis and treatment for the individual patient.

The PhD project is part of a EU FET Open funded consortium targeting alternatives to conventional Gadolinium based MR contrast agents for angiography and perfusion imaging. The consortium pursues several approaches, but this PhD project specifically aims to develop and study hyperpolarized water by dissolution Dynamic Nuclear Polarization for perfusion and angiography. Hyperpolarized water can provide a signal that is several orders of magnitude stronger than the tissue signal, and could enable superior angiograph and perfusion imaging. The key idea in the project is to study formulations of the hyperpolarized water that can extend the relaxation time of the water protons after injection into the blood stream, e.g. through micro-emulsions. This would shift hyperpolarized water from being an invasive, intra-arterial method to becoming equivalent in use to conventional MR contrast agents as a non-invasive, intravenous agent.

HYPERMAG is part of the Center for Magnetic Resonance (www.cmr.healthtech.dtu.dk) that conducts research in MRI and NMR. Our research is conducted in collaboration with universities, hospitals and healthcare companies both nationally and internationally. Our main educational responsibility is within the BSc and MSc program in BioMedical Engineering in collaboration with the Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Copenhagen.

Responsibilities and tasks
You will be responsible for developing formulations that extend the T1 of the water protons and are well-tolerated, e.g. by additives, emulsifiers or containers. High degree of incorporation of the hyperpolarized water and preservation of nuclear spin polarization are key parameters.

You will be responsible for preliminary safety studies of selected formulations as well as validation studies in a pig model of angiography and perfusion. The studies will involve interaction with other consortium members with expertise in formulations of contrast agents and imaging.

You will be part of a larger team at DTU working on the hyperpolarization of water protons and the physics and methodology of dissolution-DNP.

You should be an outgoing person with enthusiasm, good spirit and be collaborative.

Qualifications
Candidates should have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree. The preferred candidate has a degree within biomedical engineering, physical chemistry, physics or similar. Basic knowledge of NMR or MRI is a requirement.

Approval and Enrolment
The scholarship for the PhD degree is subject to academic approval, and the candidate will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes at DTU. For information about our enrolment requirements and the general planning of the PhD study programme, please see the DTU PhD Guide.

Two PhD scholarships in Bayesian Analysis of Childhood Asthma

Two PhD positions are available at the Section for Bioinformatics, Department of Health Technology at DTU. DTU Health Tech engages in research, education, and innovation based on technical and natural science for the healthcare sector, with expertise spanning from bioinformatics and biological modelling, across imaging and biosensor techniques, to biopharma technologies.

The focus of the two PhD projects is Bayesian statistical modelling of paediatric asthma. The aim of the projects will be to integrate multiple types of data (genomic, microbiome, demographic, patient records, pathway, protein-protein interaction data, etc) in a systems biology framework to investigate the molecular mechanisms underlying the development of childhood asthma. The use of mechanistic, Bayesian models (e.g., using the probabilistic programming language Stan) will be an important tool.

Responsibilities and tasks
Most GWAS studies focus on single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) one at a time. However, the biological reality is likely to be that traits are typically influenced by the combined impact of several SNPs, each having a weak effect. An important part of the present project will be to develop methods for detecting such sets of interacting SNPs using methods from within the Bayesian, probabilistic modeling paradigm. The aim is to explore both hypothesis-free approaches as well as methods based on understanding of the investigated biological systems (e.g., basing the search for SNPs on knowledge of biological pathways or protein-protein interaction data).

Qualifications
Candidates should have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree. The applicant must have strong computational skills, and a solid background in bioinformatics and machine learning. It is required that the applicant has experience both in general purpose programming languages (e.g., Python or C++) and in machine learning frameworks (such as PyTorch and TensorFlow). Experience in probabilistic programming languages (e.g., Stan or Pyro) is considered a huge plus.

Approval and Enrolment
The scholarship for the PhD degree is subject to academic approval, and the candidate will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes at DTU. For information about our enrolment requirements and the general planning of the PhD study programme, please see the DTU PhD Guide.

We offer
DTU is a leading technical university globally recognized for the excellence of its research, education, innovation and scientific advice.
