Doctoral student in Bridge Engineering – new concepts for high speed tracks

School of Architecture and Built Environment at KTH

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

Project description

Third-cycle subject: Structural Engineering and Bridges

Construction of new and restauration of existing railway lines for higher train speeds demands bridges built with minimized environmental impact. This motivates studies of new design and construction solutions contributing to reduced resource consumption and reduced emissions. The development of fossil free steel has reached far and steel bridges can be made lighter than conventional concrete bridges, which gives positive effects such as reduced transport volumes, easier construction, and less complex foundation arrangements. Further environmental benefits can be attained if weathering steel is used, which do not have to be surface treated and painted over the intended service life.

A light steel bridge has properties that may cause problems with dynamic effects of passing trains, fatigue of welded connections, and noise emission. To enable a large-scale construction of steel bridges for high speed railways, these problems need to be analysed and solutions developed. The aim of the project is increased knowledge on bridges for high speed railways and optimization for minimized environmental impact. The work will include fundamental studies in railway bridge dynamics, material behaviour of weathering steel in high strength, fatigue, and noise emission. Moreover, these complications should be studied for a number of conceptual bridge solutions with steel as the main load bearing material.

Supervision: John Leander is proposed to supervise the doctoral student. Decisions are made on admission

Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

Project description

Third-cycle subject: Vehicle and Maritime Engineering

The research studies are part of KTH Naval Architecture’s ship dynamics program for modeling of ship motions and analysis of its impact on crew, equipment and cargo, as well as on the ship system’s operability in the variety of sea states.

We envision a starting point in ongoing model and method development for time domain simulation e.g. in direct stability assessment, following the new intact stability code IMO/SGISC. Another part of the seakeeping analysis, anticipated for the research studies, address the motions’ influence on work and mission performance at sea. This includes both modelling of the ship motions as such and how crew responds to them. In addition to numerical modeling, the project is expected to include experimental field studies in collaboration with ship crews and experts in fields such as occupational science. We also see an opportunity to study gender aspects that are sometimes addressed anecdotally in connection with seakeeping analysis but rarely scientifically explored. The perfect background is Naval Architecture with good knowledge in mechanics, hydromechanics, mathematics and programming. In addition, experience and interest in human-machine interaction and its importance for system performance and risk analysis.

Doctoral student in deep generative models for cancer research

KTH Royal Institute of Technology, School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

Project description

Third-cycle subject: Computer Science

Variational autoencoders (VAEs), a part of the Variational inference (VI) methodology, has recently become important in analysis of large single-cell and spatial bio data. Yet, employing them for posterior approximations in Bayesian phylogenetics is a difficult problem. Clear examples of successful applications are still outstanding. Following recent trends in VAE research, one may hypothesize that it may be addressed by incorporating inductive biases, modeling more advanced prior distributions, and/or via architecture design.

This project aims to explore the possibility of employing VAEs or other deep generative models in the setting of somatic cancer evolution and Bayesian phylogenetics. By doing so, the Ph.D. will simultaneously contribute to two highly impactful scientific fields: computational bio/cancer and Bayesian inference in deep learning.

Our group teaches and produces cutting-edge research in VAEs, VI and approximate Bayesian inference in general, especially for methods in phylogenetics. The group provides a fertile environment for the Ph.D.’s development. The group also has a national and international network including both methodological and cancer-research groups.

Doctoral student (lic) in dynamic train-track-bridge interaction

School of Architecture and Built Environment at KTH

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

Project description

Third-cycle subject: Structural Engineering and Bridges

There is a large national and international interest to increase the capacity on existing railway lines, especially to increase axle loads for freight transports. To allow for increased axle loads on existing railway bridges, comprehensive analyses are required. In many cases the load capacity is limited by theoretical exceedance due to dynamic effects, especially for short span bridges. The reason is that the current regulations for the train-track-bridge interaction is very simplified and potentially over-conservative in many cases.

This PhD-project will focus on the dynamic interaction of the coupled train-track-bridge system with application to freight traffic. The work will involve theoretical studies and simulations as well as processing larger quantities of collected data. The aim of the project is to increase the understanding of dynamic effects on bridges caused by freight traffic, especially related to track irregularities.

The candidate will be employed at the division of Structural Engineering and Bridges. The project is a cooperation with the Swedish Transport Administration.

Supervision: Andréas Andersson is proposed to supervise the doctoral student. Decisions are made on admission

What we offer

Admission requirements

To be admitted to postgraduate education (Chapter 7, 39 § Swedish Higher Education Ordinance), the applicant must have basic eligibility in accordance with either of the following:

  • passed a second cycle degree (for example a master’s degree), or
  • completed course requirements of at least 240 higher education credits, of which at least 60 second-cycle higher education credits, or
