Postdoc in audio-visual information retrieval for artistic processes

Ref 2022/2714

Employment information

Employment: Temporary employment
Scope: Full time
Closing date for application: 2022-12-31
Campus location: Västeras
School: School of Innovation, Design and Engineering, (IDT)

Position description

In close cooperation with the Royal College of Music in Stockholm and with Spotify, Ericsson, and teenage engineering, we are looking for a postdoctoral fellow for the Information Retrieval in Embedded Systems for Audiovisual Artistic Processes project with funding from the Knowledge Development Foundation.

The project explores interaction design as a tool to demonstrate how, even in distributed music performances, you can create a sense of immersion and exchange between participants and audience in merged reality. When space and participation are physically dissolved, other sensory parameters, such as the spatial properties of sound, become even more important. The hypothesis is that immersion requires access to continuously relevant musical information and that this is available to the system and to all participants. Well-designed information retrieval, integrated with creative flows, is essential to the artistic process.

You will explore and develop designs and interactive prototypes that enable artists to use and reuse artistic material from their own previous work and from large databases. This material supports reflection on artistic decisions made in the moment during rehearsal or performance.  The tasks include experiential and participatory design, sketching and implementation of interactive prototypes, which includes media programming, merged reality, artificial intelligence and distributed systems. The whole project is situated between interaction design research and artistic research in music and intermedia.

Although the position is formally at Mälardalen University in Västerås you are expected to be prepared to do research at Royal College of Music in Stockholm.

Qualification requirements

The applicant is required to have a PhD degree in computer science, media technology, electronics or an artistic doctorate with a focus on electroacoustic music and intermedia or equivalent. The applicant must have completed the degree no more than three years before the end of the application period.

You must be able to demonstrate breadth in both knowledge and abilities and demonstrate that you can combine design, technology and artistry. Even if, for example, you have a focus in computer science, you must be able to demonstrate your ability in design and art.  

Decisive importance is attached to personal suitability. We value the qualities that an even distribution of age and gender, as well as ethnic and cultural diversity, can contribute to the organization.

Merit

In addition to academic merits, publishing of phonograms, concerts, installations, portfolio of works, publishing of software, or innovations in electronic musical, or video instruments are meritorious for employment.

Employment information

Employment: Temporary employment, 2 years
Scope: Full time
Closing date for application: 2022-11-30
Campus location: Västeras
School: School of Business, Society and Engineering, (EST)

Position description

The School of Business, Society and Engineering is looking for a postdoctoral researcher in energy and environmental engineering. The position involves working within the research specialization Future Energy Center (FEC). The work is part of the research activities conducted in numerical modeling in fluid mechanics and heat transfer under the project ModFurn at FEC. 

ModFurn project focuses on the development of a computational fluid dynamic (CFD) model capable of simulating high temperature multiphase mixtures in large processing furnaces. The CFD model based on ANSYS, OpenFoam or other platforms, should address the reaction kinetics and the phase change phenomena in such complex processes. Supported by the available experiments and field measurements, the model will improve the knowledge of the high temperature processes and their inherent physicochemical and other phenomena occurring during operations. 

ModFurn project will also serve as a platform to evaluate using AI/ML as physics informed neural networks (PINNs) to strengthen/complement the CFD simulations. The academic and industrial partners will support the project with available data and deep process knowledge.  

A large part of the work will be done at – or in close contact with – several partner organizations including Boliden, Linde and Luleå University. The successful candidate is therefore expected to have a good engineering background with profound skills in computational fluid dynamics and modelling tools as ANSYS Fluent and OpenFoam and be able to interact effectively with partner research institutes, industry, colleagues and other stakeholders. The postdoctoral researcher is expected to take initiatives, develop own ideas and work independently, as well as take responsibility for the work. As the project interacts closely with other researchers and industrial partners, the applicant needs to have high collaborative skills. 

The position may also include teaching in courses related to energy and/ or environmental engineering.

The position is a temporary employment of 2-3 years.

Qualifications requirements

The applicant is required to have a PhD degree in Computational Fluid Dynamics. The applicant must have completed the degree no more than three years before the end of the application period.

The school will select the most suitable candidate for this position following a combined evaluation of competence and skills, in addition to documented qualifications. Decisive importance is attached to personal suitability. Personal suitability will be judged in relation to the candidate’s capacity to effectively carry out the research work in this area, to integrate and contribute to a positive development of the research environment at MDU, as well as deliver value to the partner organizations.

In general terms the assessment criteria shall be based on the ability to cooperate as well as the ability and suitability otherwise required fulfilling the duties well. MDU continuously strives to be an attractive employer.   

Decisive importance is attached to personal suitability. We value the qualities that an even distribution of age and gender, as well as ethnic and cultural diversity, can contribute to the organisation. 

Merit

You are open-minded and interested in collaborating across borders within and outside MDU. Research experience as a post-doctoral or equivalent stay at an institution other than the one where your PhD was awarded are considered merits. Teamwork, leadership, organizational and entrepreneurial skills are advantages. 

Further merits for the position are:

  • Experience on numerical modelling in the areas of fluid mechanics (CFD), heat transfer, process engineering.
  • Experience in numerical modeling of combustion flows or reactive flows in general.
  • Experience in experimental measurements in the field of fluid mechanics and heat transfer.
  • Experience and interest in interaction with various international partner organizations and professional management and cooperation, including representing MDU at project meetings abroad.
  • Knowledge of, experience with, and/or interest in programming languages and modeling and analysis tools such as C++, Python, Fortran Open Modelica, and/or Matlab.
  • Knowledge of, experience with, and interest in using and developing open-source software.
  • Experience in teaching at the university level in energy engineering and/or mechanical engineering.
  • Ability to collaborate with other researchers as well as work independently.
  • Curious, goal-oriented, flexible, ambitious, and communicative personality.
  • Interest in developing methods and bringing them into different application areas.

A substantial part of the research conducted at MDU is externally funded. Experience from coordinating applications for, and working in, externally funded projects is therefore of high merit. You should have a good number of peer reviewed articles within the stated areas published at leading conferences and highly ranked international journals.
