Doctoral student in computer science

Logo for Lunds universitet

Lund University, Faculty of Engineering, LTH, Department of Computer Science

Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University has around 44 000 students and more than 8 000 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.

LTH forms the Faculty of Engineering at Lund University, with approximately 9 000 students. The research carried out at LTH is of a high international standard and we are continuously developing our teaching methods and adapting our courses to current needs.

Subject description
The PhD student will be working in the Mathematical Insights into Algorithms for Optimization (MIAO) group headed by Jakob Nordström, which is active at both Lund University and the University of Copenhagen.

The MIAO research group has a fairly unusual profile in that we are on the one hand conducting deeply theoretical, mathematical research on the foundations of efficient computation, and on the other hand working on the design of state-of-the-art applied algorithms that are meant to run blisteringly fast in practice. Much of the activities of the group revolve around powerful algorithmic paradigms such as, e.g., Boolean satisfiability (SAT) solving, Gröbner basis computations, integer linear programming, constraint programming, and semidefinite programming. This leads to classic questions in computational complexity theory—though often with new, interesting twists—but also involves work on devising new algorithmic approaches that can exploit the power of such paradigms in practice.

On the theory side, most of our work is in proof complexity. Proof complexity has connections to foundational questions in computational complexity theory, but another important motivation is algorithm analysis. All algorithms use some kind of method of reasoning to compute solutions to problems, and proof complexity can be used to analyse the potential and limitations of such methods (and thereby of the algorithms using them).

On the practical side, one problem of interest is to gain a better understanding of, and improve, the performance of current state-of-the-art SAT solvers based on conflict-driven clause learning (CDCL). We are even more interested in exploring new algebraic or geometric techniques, such as Gröbner bases or 0-1 integer linear programming (also known as pseudo-Boolean solving), that can sometimes be exponentially more powerful than CDCL, and that can also be used to solve optimization problems.

Another research area of interest is how to verify the correctness of state-of-the-art algorithms for combinatorial optimization. Such algorithms are often highly complex, and even mature commercial solvers are known to sometimes produce wrong results. We want to redesign state-of-the-art combinatorial solvers to make them certifying, i.e., so that they output not only a solution but also a simple, machine-verifiable proof that the claimed solution is correct and complete.

Work duties
The main duties of doctoral students are to devote themselves to their research studies which includes participating in research projects and third cycle courses. The work duties can also include  teaching and other departmental duties (no more than 20%), in which case the position is prolonged accordingly.

Doctoral student in physics with focus on biophysics and characterization of protein-based artificial molecular motors

Logo for Lunds universitet

Lund University, Faculty of Engineering, LTH, Department of Physics

Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University has around 44 000 students and more than 8 000 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.

LTH forms the Faculty of Engineering at Lund University, with approximately 9 000 students. The research carried out at LTH is of a high international standard and we are continuously developing our teaching methods and adapting our courses to current needs.

The Department of Physics is with a staff of about 350 scientists and educators one of the largest departments within Lund University. There are seven research divisions and a number of research centra within the department. The research activities at the department cover a broad spectrum of modern physics. www.fysik.lu.se/english.

Solid State Physics

The research at the division of Solid State Physics within the physics department is focused around different aspects of semiconductor physics, ranging from materials science to quantum physics, and different applications. The division plays a major role in NanoLund, the major interdisciplinary research environment within nanoscience and nanotechnology at Lund University, and it hosts Lund Nano Lab, a central key facility for fabrication of material and devices on the nanoscale. The division is also heavily involved in the undergraduate education, especially within the “Engineering Nanoscience” program.

Research Area
A significant part of the research at the division is in the area of nano-biotechnology, where we develop new methods to investigate biological systems, and to use biomolecules in nanodevices. The department hosts the ERC Synergy Grant ArtMotor (PI Heiner Linke), which aims at designing and building functional, synthetic protein motors, and to detect their movements along a DNA-track. As a first step, the partners will construct relatively simple protein motors that will require external control in the fluid to achieve motility. The final goal is to construct, step by step, an autonomous protein motor capable of transducing energy from ATP to move along a track.

More information can be found at: www.ftf.lth.se, www.nano.lu.se, www.nano.lu.se/heiner-linke,

https://www.physchem.lu.se/people/seniors/joensson/

https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/951375

Work duties

The PhD project’s focus will be to develop and improve, based on fundamental biophysical principles, solutions to detect and control nanoscaled stepwise movements of passive motor-types. The long-term goal is to research motility of autonomous, ATP-driven motor types. The molecules are artificial protein motors and will be provided by the collaboration partners Birte Höcker (University of Bayreuth, Germany) and Paul Curmi (UNSW, Sydney, Australia).

Thus, the project tasks are to

  • 1) Develop a fluorescence-based method to detect individual steps of motors at nm-scale precision,
  • 2) Use this to optimize and characterize the motor while it moves along a defined DNA track.

Methods may include bioanalytical and biochemical methods, fluorescence microscopy, TIRF, microfluidics, surface modification, nanofabrication, and image analysis.

The PhD position is in the research groups of Prof. Heiner Linke at the department of solid state physics and Assoc. Prof. Peter Jönsson at the department of physical chemistry, both at Lund University. Prof. Linke has long-term experience in the development of molecular motors and is a PI in the ArtMotor project in the frame of which the PhD project is located. Assoc. Prof. Peter Jönsson is an expert in high-resolution fluorescence microscopy and single molecule studies. The PhD project will also be done in close collaboration with the other ArtMotor partners Birte Höcker (University of Bayreuth, Germany) and Paul Curmi (UNSW, Sydney, Australia) and research visits to one or both of the collaborator’s groups can be part of the project.

The PhD student is expected to work independently as well as in close collaboration with the other partners in the project.

Our data and methods allow us to study gradual and complex changes of a settler economy at a level of detail never done before. The program is divided into four themes; i) inequality and social mobility, ii), slavery and labour coercion, iii) networks and elite formation and iv) economic development and living standards. The program currently employs 9 senior researchers and 3 post-docs from Sweden, Netherlands, South Africa and USA.

The aim of the project is to study the effects that colonial rule had on the indigenous Khoesan population. With help with micro-level tax censuses and wage records for the Khoesan population we are aiming to conduct longitudinal quantitative and qualitative studies of issues related to living standards,  inequality of ‘free’ Khoesan and Khoesan labourers as well as the use of coercion of Khoesan labourers. The findings will uniquely contribute to the debate on colonialism and its legacies for a colonized population.
