The department of materials and manufacturing today consists of 35 researchers and PhD students with background in material science, chemistry, mechanics and physics. The research is interdisciplinary and includes the whole chain from casting and coating process and material properties to materials science as well as modelling and simulation. There are 4 main research areas that work closely: Al and other light alloys, cast iron, surface technology and simulation and optimization technology. They form a cutting edge research group at Jönköping University and School of Engineering and have a well-equipped experimental lab for both manufacturing processes and materials characterization. Besides their fundamental research requirements, most of our research projects are industrial oriented and involve high-tech industrial partners.

We are looking for a researcher:

  • Responsible for the development experimental and research activities related to non-permanent moulding materials at casting of metals.
  • Responsible for development of moulding material recycling at casting.
  • Active development of network with industrial partners including casting producers and industrial suppliers.
  • Submission of research applications and research plans in collaboration with industrial partners.
  • Leading and performing advanced research activities involving both academic and industrial participants.
  • Responsible to develop experimental facilities and methods belonging to non-permanent moulding materials at casting of metals.
  • Some teaching, supervision and institutional activities will be included.

Qualifications

The candidate must have a PhD degree in materials engineering field and experience from research projects in the field of non-permanent molding materials performed in collaboration between universities and industrial participants. You need to be fluent in English, both orally and written. 

The successful candidate is truly interested in experimental work, pays attention to the reliability and quality of the produced work, has passion for research and eagerly welcomes new challenges, is self-driven, result-oriented and can conduct teamwork in an international and multicultural environment in a respectful manner.

It is merited if you have:

  • a specialization within foundry technology
  • practical experience in characterization and investigation of thermal and mechanical properties of granular minerals: quartz, olivine, chromite and zirconium-based sand.
  • experience of thermal analyses and numerical interpretation of casting phenomena.
  • skills in modelling and simulation of phenomena related to casting of metals.
  • experience from teaching in related topics and pedagogical education for teaching in higher education.  
  • passable skills in Swedish, both orally and written

PhD Student in Computer Science

The School of Engineering, Computer Science and Informatics

The School of Engineering is one of four schools within Jönköping University. We offer attractive technical education at undergraduate and graduate levels and conduct advanced research in several technological areas. The School of Engineering is able to award doctorates in the area of industrial product realization. We collaborate with the surrounding society to develop new technology and spread knowledge to strengthen the competitiveness of companies. Working with us, you are close to colleagues in an international environment with great opportunities to influence and develop.

At the department of Computer Science and Informatics research is conducted in the field of computer science and informatics. The newly established Jönköping AI Lab (JAIL) consists of two full professors, three associate professors, assistant professors and affiliated PhD students and laboratory engineers. The main research area is applied artificial intelligence (AI) in collaboration with the surrounding society and industry. The focus is on theory and method from data mining, machine learning and semantic technologies. JAIL is currently the largest research group in the department and is developing and growing stronger.
The department offers education at undergraduate, graduate and research levels. The teaching is conducted through bachelor, master and engineering programmes that span from graphic design to software development and artificial intelligence. The research conducted in the department supports the educational programmes. There are approximately 30 staff at the department and about half of the staff have an earned Ph.D.

Position description

We announce a new PhD student position in computer science with focus on interactive and interpretable machine learning systems. Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technologies are increasingly used by people, societal functions, and corporations. One weakness of many of today’s systems is that the models which are generated by the machine learning algorithms are opaque or too complex to understand for users. The purpose of guided and interactive machine learning is to make it possible for the user to take an active part in the machine learning process. Tools and techniques from visualization and human-computer interaction can be used to enhance user experience and to increase our understanding and trust of AI-based systems. As PhD student, you will take part in the research project Mining Actionable Patterns from complex Physical Environments using interpretable machine learning (MAPPE), jointly funded by the Knowledge Foundation, Jönköping University, and two industrial partners. The purpose of the project is to explore and develop methods for interpretable models and automatically generated explanations of predictions for two interesting use cases that concern sensor-based perception of human behavior and performance in complex, physical environments.

Within the scope of the project, the selected candidate will be able to frame the research topic and approach to suit the candidate’s background profile and personal interests.

Work description

As PhD student, you will focus primarily on completing your research education in computer science. Typical work assignments include participation in the MAPPE research project, basic teaching tasks in the form of lab work, exercises, and supervision of undergraduate theses. More generally, you will support the advancement of the research environment and the development of new programs and courses in AI and machine learning at the department.

Qualifications

Candidates must have completed a master’s degree in computer science or a related area. Strong command of English is a requirement. Basic proficiency in Swedish at the time of employment is desired.

Candidates need to demonstrate excellent skills in technical writing, programming, and problem solving as well as significant knowledge and skills within at least one of the following areas: machine learning, data mining, AI, and at least one of the following areas: visualization, VR, human-computer interaction.

Suitable personal qualities

We are looking for candidates who are independent, analytical, creative, and committed. Generally, excellent candidates should demonstrate strong organizational, literacy, and numeracy skills as well as passion and diligence for the work at hand.

Employment
The employment is limited to 4-5 years, 80-100 % in accordance with applicable collective agreement. Salary is also regulated in collective agreement.

Start date April 1, 2019 or as agreed upon.
