PhD position in low-power computer vision for drone systems, University of Southern Denmark (SDU), Denmark

The Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) Center, at the Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller Institute at the SDU, is offering:

A PhD position starting from October 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position is for three years.

The PhD will work on the TeamPlay project: Time, Energy and security Analysis for Multi/Many-core heterogeneous PLAtforms. The project was recently funded by the ICT-05 call: Customized and Low Energy Computing under Horizon 2020 Framework Program.

The goal of the TeamPlay project is to develop new, formally-motivated techniques that will allow execution time, energy usage, security, and other important non-functional properties of parallel software to be treated effectively, and as first-class citizens. This will be built into a toolbox for developing highly parallel software for low-energy systems, as required by drones, the internet of things, cyber-physical systems etc. The TeamPlay approach will allow programs to reflect directly on their own time, energy consumption, security, etc., as well as enabling the developer to reason about both the functional and the nonfunctional properties of their software at the source code level.

In the context of this project, we provide the following topic for the position: “Low-power computer vision for drone systems”. The focus will be on applying the TeamPlay platform to analyze, optimize, and implement the main energy-consuming computer vision software components in the drone system. The optimized applications will serve as use cases for the project as a whole and will be implemented on experimental drone platforms. The research activities will be focusing on methods for optimizing the energy usage of computationally heavy onboard vision applications, including the adaptive use of different algorithms for onboard vision and communication with the ground station.

The successful candidates will be expected to have:

  1. Master’s degree in embedded systems, computer engineering, applied mathematics, robotics or related fields.
  2. Strong background in computer vision; experience with deep learning, system integration, static analysis, microprocessors, or GPUs is considered an advantage.
  3. Good programming and modeling skills (e.g., Python, C, C++, Matlab/Simulink, UML, SystemC).

Additionally, the candidate should have excellent writing skills and be able to work independently. The successful candidate for the position will be affiliated with the UAS center at the Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller Institute, the University of Southern Denmark.

The applicant should provide a cover letter explaining his/her approach to the problem, and at most three articles illustrating his/her publication record and research interests, in addition to standard items such as CV, full publication list, etc. (see below).

Three PhD Positions in Chemical Biology / Biochemistry

Three PhD positions in chemical biology / biochemistry are available at the Department of Physics and Chemistry, University of Southern Denmark. Application deadline: 1 September 2018. Starting date of all positions will be as soon as possible thereafter.

Epigenetics most often refer to processes, such as enzymatic modifications of DNA and numerous posttranslational modifications of the associated histone proteins, that lead to the transfer of genetic information from generation to generation, without changes in the underlying sequence of DNA. In order to understand the enormous intricacy of the epigenetic language, it is necessary to deepen our knowledge, at the atomic level, of biomolecular recognition of posttranslational modifications of histones.

As a PhD student, you will work on the ERC funded project that aims to provide the most comprehensive and complete understanding of biomolecular recognition processes in epigenetics that play key roles in human health and disease. You will apply modern chemical biology tools to investigations of posttranslational modifications of histone proteins and you will examine how such modifications influence the complex nucleosome structure.
    
Requirements:
• an MSc degree in chemistry, biochemistry or molecular life sciences;
• experience with protein or peptide research;
• strong motivation and interest in working at the interface between chemistry and biology;
• excellent skills in written and spoken English.

For further information please contact Associate Professor Jasmin Mecinovic , e-mail: mecinovic@sdu.dk.

Application, salary etc.

Job description

The Centre for Integrative Innovation Management is a cross-disciplinary research group focusing on meeting the societal demands for strengthening the innovative capabilities and processes of Danish industry.

3. The role of digitisation in innovation – the focus here is on identifying the effects of digitisation and data on innovation. We are including how digitisation influences the existing business models.

The research strategy of the group further emphasizes the following subjects for the coming years: analysis and application of big data for innovation, commercialization of specific technologies like e.g. drones or 3D printing, project management for innovation performance, and sustainability and innovation. We are particularly welcoming project proposals within these themes.

As part of the PhD programme, an individual education programme within the field of marketing and management has to be completed. The successful candidates will be expected to complete a six-month stay at a research institution abroad and, over the period of the programme, to acquire experience of teaching or other types of presentation.
