PhD scholarship in Learning Design for Agile Computational Tools in Systems Engineering Education

A PhD position is available in the frame of a research funding from EU Erasmus+ Capacity Building Program and Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark. The PhD project will be carried out the at the Process and Systems Engineering Centre which is globally renowned for development of systematic methods and tools in various areas of chemical, biochemical and pharmaceutical engineering. The PhD project sets out to develop learning design for agile and emerging computational tools that will need to be brought into real-world practice in near future, such as quantum computing and artificial intelligence.

Today, our society is facing an ever-increasing set of challenges as the process systems to deliver products and services are becoming more complex. Moreover, new computational tools are emerging, such as quantum computing and artificial intelligence, which are not yet embedded in the current engineering curricula. Therefore, one way to tackle this challenge is to develop agile learning design based on a qualitative assessment of students’ needs, their learning performance and curriculum development while taking into account their emotional response. Therefore, the focus is on enhancing individual learning skills. This means creating critical thinking, intuition and addressing various students’ needs that they may not be facing at the learning phase. However, they need to be understood once the complex concepts are brought into practice.

The chemical and biochemical industry is a major discipline that drives many products, processes and services to address societal needs. Over the past decades and with introduction of bioprocesses to produce an array of commodity, specialty and pharmaceutical products, the technological landscape has been dramatically changed. Moreover, there has been a lot of attention towards using quantum computing and artificial intelligence for increased productivity. However, there has been little to no attention paid to the use of these tools in education and developing training-support tools to be used by future engineers.

The goal of this project is to make a qualified roadmap for introducing agile computational tools and their corresponding learning design and tools into engineering education with a focus on (bio)chemical processes. This roadmap will be devised as a comprehensive assessment of current curricula and teaching methods and how to best introduce emerging computational tools into the education.

Responsibilities and tasks
The PhD student working in this project will make a qualified roadmap for introducing agile computational tools and their corresponding learning design and tools into engineering education with a focus on (bio)chemical processes. This roadmap will be devised as a comprehensive assessment of current curricula and teaching methods. The goals of the project are: 

  • Identifying the needs, challenges and opportunities for embedding quantum computing and AI in engineering education.
  • Establishing a robust approach that relates student needs to on-demand learning objectives that may be subject to an evolving technology.
  • Providing an unbiased perspective to potential advantages and disadvantages of AI in learning design, meaning an intuitive guideline for implementation that can be easily extended to other educations and domain applications.
  • Participation and dissemination of the work in organizing workshops, focus groups, peer-groups and different interpersonal activities related to the project
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 should ideally hold a degree in an engineering or science discipline, pedagogy or psychology. Additional skills beneficial to the position include: 
  • Demonstrated ability in carrying out qualitative surveys and statistical analysis of the results
  • Familiarity with mathematical modelling and engineering computer-aided tools
  • Strong understanding of human-technology interactions
  • Ability to devise, interpret and model the statistical results
  • Knowledge of computer-aided tools such MATLAB and familiarity with concepts of computer programming
We also expect you to be a team player and to enjoy being part of a dynamic multidisciplinary research team.

PhD scholarship in atomic scale simulations of the oxygen reduction reaction at the solid-liquid interface

The Section for Atomic Scale Materials Modelling at DTU Energy, Technical University of Denmark (DTU), invites applications for a PhD scholarship on atomic scale simulations of the oxygen reduction reaction at the solid-liquid interface in fuel cell cathodes.

 

Liquid electrolytes are important in several electrocatalytic reactions, where solvated ions in the electrolyte are known to affect reaction rates, thereby modifying catalyst activity and selectivity. Simultaneously, atomic scale simulations based on Density Functional Theory ( DFT) have provided key insights into reaction energetics and kinetics, usually employing simple models neglecting the dynamics of the solid liquid interface and/or solvated electrolyte ions. Therefore, accurate understanding and prediction of reaction activity and selectivity remains a challenge.

 

Responsibilities and tasks

The successful candidate will use DFT and ab initio molecular dynamics simulations in combination with machine learning approaches to understand key properties of the liquid electrolyte that affect activity and selectivity for the electrochemical reduction of oxygen in fuel cells and metal air batteries. The project will be linked to other ongoing computational projects in the section working on electrocatalyst design and materials modelling.

  • Your research could include the development of accelerated computational approaches to sample reactions of solid-liquid interfaces
  • Your research could include development of algorithms or protocols to predict the behaviour for oxygen reduction catalysts under operating conditions
  • You will be responsible for the daily progress of your research project
  • As part of the PhD education, you will follow courses and assist in teaching activities
  • You are expected to spend at least 3 months at a foreign research institution
  • You will disseminate your work in international peer reviewed journals and at professional conferences.

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.

 

We favour candidates with a degree in physics, chemistry or materials science or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a master’s degree in engineering. Experience with computational/theoretical physics, chemistry or related areas are an advantage.

PhD scholarship in Micro-Inductors for High-Frequency Power Converters

The Department of Electrical Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) invites applications for a 3-year PhD position to join the project “Towards Integrated Nano-Magnetics for High Frequency Power Supplies (HiFMag)” supported by the Danish Council for Independent Research within the Electronics group (ELE).

Today magnetic components such as inductors and transformers of power supplies are large compared to other electronic components. The challenge in realizing smaller, faster and in turn greener power supplies – e.g. for cell phone chargers – is integration of magnetic materials that can operate efficiently in the components at high frequencies (>10 MHz, to be used in switch mode power supplies).

The HiFMag project aims at designing and integrating new magnetic materials – with low power losses and high permeability at high frequencies – into microfabricated chips of lithographically patterned coils and circuits. For this, we combine expertise at DTU (Physics, Nanolab, and Elektro) on magnetism, microfabrication and electrical engineering.

Responsibilities and tasks
As a PhD student, you will contribute to designing and optimizing inductors as well as power converters. Your tasks include design of circuits and magnetic components (shape, dimension, coil…), as well as measurements and tests. During the project, you will collaborate closely with the other HiFMag team members in order to fabricate the inductors and integrated power converter prototypes in DTU Nanolab clean-room.

The PhD project will be supervised by Associate Professor Ziwei Ouyang from DTU Elektro and co-supervised by Professor Cathrine Frandsen from DTU Physics, Associate Professor Marco Beleggia and Deputy Director Anders Michael Jørgensen from DTU Nanolab.

Most of the PhD project will be carried out at DTU campus in Lyngby. The project additionally includes a 3-6 month external stay at the power electronics research center PERC at National University of Ireland, where the candidate will extend his/her work on the design of the coupled inductors as well as core loss measurements in collaboration with Centre Director Dr. Maeve Duffy.

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 with outstanding results.

Postdoc in Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Neuronal Currents

A range of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) techniques are widely used for mapping of brain function, but they have a major limitation in common: Rather than mapping actual electrical brain activity, they record indirect measures such as blood oxygenation changes. Following our recent successes in mapping of injected currents with unprecedented sensitivity, we will develop a new MRI technique for mapping of tiny magnetic field changes caused by fluctuating neuronal currents. The method is expected to open novel avenues in basic and clinical neuroimaging, e.g. improved localization of malformed brain areas causing epileptic seizures.

We have ideas for how these goals can be achieved, but we need your help designing the measurements, conducting experiments and publishing the results. You will be the daily responsible for the project, and will design, plan and conduct experiments giving the best chance of success. These may include both MRI, EEG and brain stimulation methods.

You will work in close collaboration with experienced researches in the fields of MR physics, MR current density imaging, brain stimulation and neurophysiology of activation, particularly Assoc. Profs. Axel Thielscher and Lars G. Hanson.

Responsibilities and tasks
Our aim is mapping of natural neuronal currents in humans. Your tasks include analysis and experimentation with respect to sensitivity to neural architecture, stimulation paradigms, EEG correlates, MRI sequence choices and validation. Simultaneously, you will advance your scientific career by learning and developing new techniques and publishing the results.

Flexibility and self-motivation are desired skills. In addition, we expect you to be interested in collaboration and take personal responsibility for your work. We offer substantial academic sparring in an informal atmosphere.

Qualifications
Candidates should have a PhD degree or equivalent.

A strong background in technical aspects of MRI development and analysis is required. Prior experience with MR sequence development, and especially EEG, neuro-architecture and specifics of neural activation are advantageous. MR sequence development and testing will be conducted using the JEMRIS/Pulseq MRI development environments or similar, and vendor-specific scanner programming is therefore of limited importance. Prior experience with these tools is not essential.

We offer
DTU is a leading technical university globally recognized for the excellence of its research, education, innovation and scientific advice. We offer a rewarding and challenging job in an international environment. We strive for academic excellence in an environment characterized by collegial respect and academic freedom tempered by responsibility.

Salary and terms of employment
The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed upon with the relevant union.

The project including your 2-year employment is mainly funded by the Lundbeck Foundation. The project is conducted in collaboration with the Danish Research Centre for Magnetic Resonance (www.drcmr.dk/) located at Copenhagen University Hospital Hvidovre, Denmark, where the experiments will be conducted.

You can read more about career paths at DTU here.

Further information
The employment and primary activity will be at the Center for Magnetic Resonance, Department of Health Technology at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in Lyngby, just North of Copenhagen that is characterized by a very international atmosphere and is globally recognized as a very attractive site for settling.

PhD scholarship in Carbon Emissions of Ships

DTU Management invites applications for a 3-year position as PhD student in the Operations Management Group. In the group, we focus on effective planning of resources and activities in production and service companies from the strategic to operational level. Particular attention is paid to quantitative methods, the use of information technology, and manufacturing philosophies such as Lean and Complexity Management. The Operations Management group covers a broad spectrum of industrial sectors, including maritime transport.

The PhD position is in Environmental Studies in the maritime sector with a focus on indicators for monitoring carbon emissions from ships. The existing indicators are either technical or operational in nature. Our objective with the project is to combine these approaches in order to develop an indicator that can effectively reflect all attributes of a ship’s energy efficiency. Emphasis will be placed on the effect of weather conditions on indicator values. We will also investigate the possibility of applying the devised indicator on a fleet of vessels in order to capture the network effect on ship performance and increase cost effectiveness in meeting the carbon reduction target set out by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO).

Responsibilities and tasks
The overall objective of the PhD project will be to contribute to the policy debate on greening international shipping by developing a carbon intensity indicator that combines both technical and operational aspects of the energy efficiency of a ship. More specifically, you will be involved in analysing detailed technical and operational data of container ships in order to: 

  • estimate the effect of weather on fuel consumption;
  • design a weather-normalized indicator;
  • define typical operational cycles (in terms of cargo on board, speed, port time, etc.) for different ship sizes;
  • apply the normalized indicator on such typical cycles and assess its effectiveness as a ship benchmarking tool;
  • apply the indicator on a fleet of vessels to capture the network effect on ship performance; and
  • draw recommendations on investments and policy measures that meet the IMO targets at minimal cost for the ship operator/owner.
The application of the devised indicator on a fleet of vessels will initially cover the containership segment, where networks comprise a key operational feature. Other challenges include the handling of energy consumed by reefers, the need to reposition empty containers, etc. If successful, the concept can be applied easily to other segments of the shipping industry.

As a successful candidate, you will work in close collaboration with the supervisors, but will also be expected to carry out research tasks independently. In particular, you will be responsible for developing the methodological framework for the new indicator and analyzing the data provided by a leading Danish containership operator.

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.

A relevant background could be a degree in Naval architecture and marine engineering, Mechanical engineering, Industrial engineering or Mathematics and Computing. Good knowledge of and experience with statistics is a prerequisite. Knowledge/experience in programming and machine learning will be an advantage.

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.

Assessment
The assessment of the applicants will be made by Assoc. Prof. Michael Barfod and Researcher George Panagakos.

PhD Position in Data Analytics in Production

DTU Compute would like to invite applications for a 3-year PhD position starting September 1, 2020. The position is financed by DTU, and is part of the joint doctoral degree program together with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). The candidate is required to spend at least one year in total at each of the institutions. The successful candidate will be offered a three-year position.

Project Description
The term Big Data seems to be ubiquitous in many fields of applications and industrial production is no different. However, in production this can be somewhat misleading as it often refers to process data which is obtained through automated data collection schemes with minimal manual interference. Product related data is usually scarcer particularly in high volume production due to cost of inspection. This creates an imbalance in the amount of available data which can in times be quite substantial. Yet in many cases, predictive modeling relating process variables to product characteristics is sought after. Therefore it will be beneficial to guide the data collection schemes for product characteristics through a real time sampling methodology. This methodology should actively dictate when and how the new product data would be collected. In this project, we will investigate multivariate data analysis and process monitoring methods to trigger the need for product data collection when this approach detects out-of-the ordinary circumstances. The project will involve an industrial partner for immediate applications of developed methodologies.

Opportunities
During your PhD project, you will be part of a group of researchers in data analytics and have the chance to interact with individuals with similar research interests. The group is currently engaged in many industrial projects, which will allow you to observe various application cases of the methodological developments we are working on. The project will also involve another PhD candidate and a professor from NTNU with whom you will have the opportunity to collaborate to further your research.

As a PhD candidate, you will have the opportunity to teach BSc/MSc students in our regularly offered courses in data analytics. You will also have the opportunities to develop your teaching skills in our distance learning and continuing education programs through short courses offered primarily for the industry.

Requirements
You must have a master degree in engineering science or natural science or equivalent academic qualifications. You must have a very strong background in data analysis, mathematical modelling, and computing and if you have practical experience with large datasets and machine learning methods we highly encourage you to apply. Furthermore, prior knowledge in software packages such as R and Python as well as proficient coding skills will be required. You must be fluent in English, both speaking and writing with great communication and presentation skills.

Approval and Enrolment
The scholarship for the PhD degree is subject to academic approval. You will be enrolled in the DTU Compute PhD School as the host institute. For information about the general requirements for enrolment and the general planning of the scholarship studies, please see the
DTU PhD Guide

PhD scholarship in Advanced Coil Development for Ultra High Field MRI

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the most versatile medical imaging platform that exists today, but interaction between the RF signals and the human body obstructs the full potential of state-of-the-art MR imaging, especially when moving towards higher magnetic field strength. The increased interactions cause images to show severe shading and poor quality over large areas unless fully compensated.

The proposed research project will investigate how to resolve and control these RF field interactions in order to unleash the full potential of ultra-high field MRI. This include innovative RF coil design which are capable of shaping the static magnetic field (B0 shimming) as well as the transmit field (B1 shimming). This novel B0 and B1 shim enabled MRI transceive array coil will be used for greatly improved structural, functional and metabolic imaging at 7 tesla MRI. To achieve this we have teamed up in an exciting collaboration between Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Danish Research Centre for Magnetic Resonance (DRCMR) and Technical University of Eindhoven (TU/e). The PhD project is part of the EuroTech Universities Alliance stipend from DTU, which promotes knowledge transfer between the institutions.

Center for Magnetic Resonance (www.cmr.healthtech.dtu.dk) 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.

Danish Research Centre for Magnetic Resonance is one of the leading research centers for biomedical MRI in Europe (www.drcmr.dk). We are an interdisciplinary research centre and our mission is to triangulate MR physics, basic physiology, and clinical research. Approximately 70 researchers from a diverse range of disciplines work together to pursue basic and clinically applied MR research with a focus on structural, functional, and metabolic MRI of the human brain and its disorders. DRCMR houses the first and only human ultra-high field MR system in Denmark, which will be used in this project.

Department of Electrical Engineering, Center for Care & Cure Technology Eindhoven promotes health-related R&D and education at various levels: through complementary, multi-disciplinary health-related projects within Electrical Engineering, working in synergy with part-ners and participating in TU/e flagship programs.
