About the job

For a position as a PhD Candidate, the goal is a completed doctoral education up to an obtained doctoral degree. 

Wireless embedded sensor nodes can perform increasingly complex inference tasks directly on the device. This makes such devices suitable for instrumenting a large number of machines, equipment or other items with the goal to detect anomalies in their operation. The problem remains to learn what constitutes anomalies that should be reported and distinguish them from normal changes in operation or variations between devices. Together with partners in the NorwAI SFI, the candidate will work on methods and prototypes to detect and classify anomalies, study transfer learning between devices, and explore how expert knowledge can be considered in the specific setting of distributed and streaming sensor data. 

We anticipate the starting date for the candidate is during spring 2023. 

Your immediate leader is the leader of NorwAI SFI.

About the job

The Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (MTP) has a vacancy for a PhD candidate in the materials research group, with special focus on the design and development of hydrogen resistant metallic materials by additive manufacturing.

Hydrogen is considered as a clean energy carrier for the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy. However, the application of hydrogen energy can be decelerated due to the inevitable embrittling effect when hydrogen interacts with metal. Additive manufacturing (AM) has shown its uniqueness in producing complex multifunctional components for existing applications. It has also been proposed as a promising approach to develop metallic materials that can tolerate hydrogen damage, not only in the hydrogen value chain, but also for subsea service in the oil and gas sector. Nevertheless, little is known about hydrogen embrittlement resistance of AM materials. In this project, you are expected to employ the state-of-the-art testing techniques developed at MTP, to study both the AM and conventional metallic materials, for instance high-strength steels and nickel alloys, on:

(1)    Hydrogen uptake, diffusion and trapping. Because testing in hydrogen gas is expensive and requires dedicated experimental setup, an equivalence between gaseous and electrochemical hydrogen will be established;

(2)    The effect of hydrogen on macro- and micro-mechanical properties;

(3)    The effect of AM parameters on hydrogen embrittlement resistance.

For a position as a PhD Candidate, the goal is a completed doctoral education up to an obtained doctoral degree.

Your will report to Associate Professor Xu Lu. 

Duties of the position

  • study hydrogen diffusion behavior using hydrogen permeation and thermal desorption spectroscopy techniques
  • establish an equivalence between gaseous and electrochemical hydrogen charging
  • study and compare hydrogen effect on mechanical properties of AM and conventional materials using tensile testing and micro-mechanical testing approaches
  • materials characterization using SEM, XRD, FIB, etc.
  • write journal papers
  • present scientific work at conferences

Required selection criteria

  • you must have a professionally relevant background in materials science/engineering, metallurgical engineering, mechanical engineering, experimental physics, or related fields
  • your education must correspond to a five-year Norwegian degree program, where 120 credits are obtained at master’s level
  • you must have a strong academic background from your previous studies and an average grade from the master’s degree program, or equivalent education, which is equal to B or better compared with NTNU’s grading scale. If you do not have letter grades from previous studies, you must have an equally good academic basis.

  • you must meet the requirements for admission to the faculty’s doctoral program 
  • you must have relevant experimental skills in mechanical testing and materials characterization
  • you must have a scientific background relevant to the planned research activities
  • you must show the ability and willingness to conduct research in a multidisciplinary setting and team
  • you need good written and oral English language skills

The appointment is to be made in accordance with  Regulations concerning the degrees of Philosophiae Doctor (PhD) and Philosodophiae Doctor (PhD) in artistic research national guidelines for appointment as PhD, post doctor and research assistant  

Preferred selection criteria

  • prior knowledge/experience in hydrogen embrittlement phenomenon of structural materials
  • prior knowledge on additive manufacturing or power metallurgy
  • knowledge of programming basics like Python, Matlab, etc.

About the job

We are seeking for a highly motivated PhD candidate in the Department of Biology at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) to join the group of Basil el Jundi (www.insectnavigation.com). The candidate should have a solid background in sensory ecology, neuroethology, and/or neuroscience. A strong interest in insect navigation, an excellent track record and experience with performing behavioral experiments or electrophysiological recordings and programming would be desirable. The group aims to create an international work environment and therefore encourages international applicants to apply.

For a position as a PhD Candidate, the goal is a completed doctoral education up to an obtained doctoral degree. The ideal starting date is 01.05.2023, but a later date is negotiable. The deadline for applying is 15.02.2023.

In the el Jundi lab we are interested in understanding the behavioral and neural mechanisms of spatial orientation and navigation in insects and how these mechanisms are shaped by an animal’s ecology and lifestyle. Currently, the main focus of the lab is to unravel the mechanisms behind the annual monarch butterfly migration. Each fall, millions of monarch butterflies migrate over thousands of kilometers from North America to certain trees in the mountain ranges of Central Mexico. How exactly these animals find these trees at the end of their journey is completely unknown.

Duties of the position

The PhD candidate will perform behavioral experiments on the sensory ecology of monarch butterflies. Using a flight simulator in the field and in the lab, the relevance of different cues from the overwintering site, such as certain chemical compounds from the overwintering trees, will be studied to unravel how exactly the butterflies localize their migratory destination. Thus, the PhD candidate is expected to perform experiments at the NTNU and to participate on annual research trips to the US/Mexico. In addition, the PhD candidate has the possibility to combine her/his behavioral experiments with neurophysiological methods (e.g. intracellular recordings, multichannel tetrode recordings) to study how the different cues are processed in the butterfly brain.

Required selection criteria

  • Educational requirements: 5 years of higher education (BSc and MSc) in Behavioral Ecology, Animal Physiology, Neuroscience or another related field.
  • Strong scientific background in relevant area, good communication- and analytical skills.

About the job

We are looking for a motivated person who are interested in joining our team as a PhD student at The Cancer Imaging and Multi-Omics Research Group (CIMORe, former MR Cancer Group – https://www.ntnu.edu/isb/cimore#/view/about) at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.

CIMORe focus on the use of medical imaging and molecular analyses to describe functional and metabolic characteristics of cancer. Our overall aim is to contribute to improved and patient-tailored management of the disease. Our translational approach to cancer research benefits from the close integration between NTNU and St. Olavs University Hospital. The group is highly interdisciplinary with research scientists, Post Docs and PhD candidates with backgrounds from medical physics, molecular biology, medicine, bioinformatics, pharmacy, chemistry, and data science.

The project will be headed by professor Tone Frost Bathen. 

Duties of the position

The position will be a part of a multidisiplinary team employing precision imaging for improved patient management. For prostate cancer, standard imaging modalites (MRI, CT) have low sensitivity for detection of disease outside the prostate. The most promising alternative is positron emission tomography imaging (PET) with prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA)-based tracers. The successful candidate will analyze data from PSMA-PET/MRI/CT-studies of prostate cancer, provided from ongoing clinical trials organized by the 180°N Norwegian Nuclear Medicine Consortium. 180°N is a collaboration between the hospitals and universities in Trondheim, Tromsø and Bergen (https://180n.no/wp/clinical-wp1/). More specifically, the tasks will be related to assessing the benfits and limitations of the imaging modalities in high risk and recurrent prostate cancer to ensure future optimal imaging protocols for personalized diagnostics. Interest in and experience from data/image analysis and medical statistics will be a benefit. Moreover, we expect the radionuclide therapy agent Lu-PSMA to be approved in Norway soon. PSMA directed radionuclide treatment depends on PSMA-PET imaging to plan and assess the response to treatment (theranostics). Thus, the candidate will also investigate factors affecting the PSMA uptake using histology and immunohistochemistry as a gold standard.

Required selection criteria

  • You must have a professionally relevant background such as Master of Science in medical physics or biomedical engineering, alternatively an MB degree (medicine)
  • Experience with clinical medical imaging, in particular PET, MRI and/or CT
  • Your education must correspond to a five-year Norwegian degree program, where 120 credits are obtained at master’s level, or a Norwegian MB
  • You must have a strong academic background from your previous studies and an average grade from the master’s degree program, or equivalent education, which is equal to B or better compared with NTNU’s grading scale. If you do not have letter grades from previous studies, you must have an equally good academic basis. If you have a weaker grade background, you may be assessed if you can document that you are particularly suitable for a PhD education.
  • Master’s students can apply, but the master’s degree must be obtained and documented by 31/7-2023
  • You must meet the requirements for admission to the faculty’s doctoral program 
  • Good written and oral English language skills
  • Preferred start in this position is August 2023

The appointment is to be made in accordance with  Regulations concerning the degrees of Philosophiae Doctor (PhD) and Philosodophiae Doctor (PhD) in artistic research national guidelines for appointment as PhD, post doctor and research assistant  

Preferred selection criteria

  • Documented hands-on experience in medical imaging and medical statistics
  • Experience in image and data analysis (e.g. using Matlab, R, Python)
  • Experience from interdisciplinary teamwork
  • Interest in science communication to peers and public
  • Motivation for the position

Personal characteristics

  • Enthusiastic and highly motivated
  • Good team player and collaborative skills but also the ability to work independently
  • Good work ethics, management and organisational skills

Emphasis will be placed on personal and interpersonal qualities.
