Technology and society is a third-cycle subject that encompasses multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary studies of technology's role, interplay and importance in different sectors of society.

Project description

The highly interdisciplinary project explores how AI transparency relates to consumer trust and can enable fair and accountable uses of applied AI in consumer markets. We will study i) how AI is governed in consumer markets at large; ii) the consumers' norms and understanding of AI, especially with regards to transparency, and iii) how AI explainability can be developed in the intersection between social, legal and technical aspects in order to strengthen consumer trust.

Specifically, we are looking for a doctoral student to study issues of explainable AI and transparency from a social scientific perspective. This is located in the intersection between technical aspects of making machine learning applications explainable and what types of explanations would be required, in a legal and social context, to gain an appropriate level of consumer trust.

Methodologically, this could be pursued both through qualitative or quantitative studies. Synergies will be striven for together with other research projects with similar challenges in other domains, the WASP-HS program or the AI Lund research network.

PhD Position Stabilization of Crystal Hydrates for Thermal Energy Storage

Eindhoven University of Technology is delighted to offer a PhD position in polymers. Applications will be evaluated on a continuous basis.

The Eindhoven University of Technology has a PhD position in Stabilization of Crystal Hydrates for Thermal Energy Storage.

/ Fifty percent of our daily energy usage is in the form of thermal energy. In view of the energy challenges ahead of us, compact heat storage could offer opportunities to bridge the mismatch between availability and consumption of energy. Inorganic crystal hydrates have the potential to be used as storage media. Discharge happens via hydration reactions involving a phase transition of the crystal lattice due to water incorporation.

/ Stabilize the crystal hydrates to prevent pulverization and deliquescence. The hydrates undergo volume changes during (de)hydration cycles.

/ You will develop inorganic/organic composites consisting of a crystal hydrate and a polymeric binder or coating. To understand the impact of the organic stabilizer on the crystal hydrate, you will investigate the hydration/dehydration reactions in presence of the stabilizer: the width of the metastable zone, the nucleation and growth characteristics and the phase change kinetics with TGA-DSC, XRD and NMR. In a second step you will investigate the behavior of the newly developed inorganic/organic composites in a reactor bed.

Information about the research and the project

Computing technology is at a challenging inflection point where transistor scaling is tapering off and where increased performance must come from novel use of hardware resources as accelerators. At the same time, data-centric applications are driving the computing scene with AI and Data Analytics being an important application driver. A new project focusing on systems composed of multiple Processing in Memory (PIM) chips realizing a parallel computer is being launched. The goal is to investigate principles for a new data centric programming model in which computations move to data instead of data moving to processing units. The vision is that by moving computation close to the memory, it will be possible to substantially increase performance as expensive data transfers can be avoided. The challenge, however, is in understanding the principles for how to support the new programming model in a way that both ease programming and take advantage of the PIM model.

The project will be run in the Division of Computer Engineering within the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. The High-Performance Computer Architecture Group, within the Division of Computer Engineering, under the leadership of Professor Per Stenstrm, is conducting frontier research on design principles for the next generation computer systems. To ease the programming task and yet achieve high and predictable computational performance at as high an energy efficiency as possible is an important objective in the knowledge generation process that the group contributes with. To this end, the group has a solid track record and a long-term focus on contributing to design principles of parallel computers. Four faculty members, two postdocs and thirteen PhD students are engaged in research in computer architecture.

PhD Scholarship in Ar/vr Interface Design for Rehabilitation By Exoskeleton

Outstanding international students are invited to apply for a PhD scholarship in sustainable development at Technical University of Denmark. The funds for this fellowship are available for 3 years. Candidates are welcome before January 05, 2020.

The Department of Technology, Management and Economics at DTU-Technical University of Denmark invites applications for a 3-year position in rehabilitation by exoskeleton, funded by the Horizon2020 EU project called ReHyb – Rehabilitation based on Hybrid neuroprosthesis. This includes the design of an active exoskeleton that allows flexible training and mobility of the stroke patients plus active control through functional electrical stimulation (FES). Such hybrid systems are advantageous because the users' own muscular activity initializes the movements.

The PhD position will be based in the Innovation Division and specifically in the research group Engineering Systems Design. The Engineering Systems Design group is characterised by a vibrant and supportive research environment with engaged staff and strong research collaborations with leading universities and industry worldwide. Our research focuses on understanding and improving the ways in which complex socio-technical engineering systems are designed and managed throughout their life cycles. We have a number of health innovation research projects and are members of the Copenhagen Center for Health Technology (CACHET). The research field is advanced interface design, and design for behaviour change. The objective is to design, develop and test a prototype of an AR/VR interface for a patient-specific, assist-as-needed device which maximises the training efficiency during home-based rehabilitation via, for example, serious gaming, and offers a pleasant user experience by supporting patients in daily life activities. In addition to the European research partners, here at DTU, new positions connected to the project also include a Post-Doc project on Digital-twin patient system modelling for rehabilitation by exoskeleton. You will become part of a research team working intensively with design and development of parts of a robotic device for neurorehabilitation for stroke patients. The focus for the PhD study will be to design and develop feedback to the user and the therapist with a multimodal approach where visual guidance to the patients are given in AR glasses, acoustic cues are given via headphones and haptic and vibrotactile signals are transmitted from the robot. The therapist will be able to monitor the training session on an interface showing current training status, active user feedback and logs of previous training sessions. In particular, you will be designing multimodal interaction for the patient, who will use arm- and hand movement, plus gaze and head to control the robot. Candidates should have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree. A relevant background could be a master's degree in electrical engineering, computer science, interaction design, engineering design, game design or a degree in other areas with additional qualifications relevant for the responsibilities and tasks.

The scholarship for the PhD degree is subject to academic approval, and the candidate will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes at DTU.

PhD Scholarship in Aerodynamic Analysis and Optimization of Future Jet Engine Fans

Applications are invited for a PhD position in mechanical engineering to join Chalmers University of Technology. The initial contract for this position is 5 years. Applications are welcome before December 15, 2019.

Information about the project

You are hereby invited to apply for a PhD student position in the project Fan Alternatives for Next Generation Aero Engines. The project is run as a collaborative effort between Chalmers and GKN Aerospace and is a project funded by the Swedish National Aeronautical Research Program (NFFP). The most important work revolves around developing new fan concepts for future civil aero engines and analyse them with respect to their aerodynamic, mechanical and system level properties.

Geared engines (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geared_turbofan) are now increasing their share of the market of civil aero engines. The gear allows the fan to be designed rather independently from the turbine that drives it. In addition, as the fan size grows in size geometric variability becomes a more attractive design option. The key activities in the project focuses on developing geometry and performing aerodynamic analysis and optimization of several competing concepts to understand limitations and opportunities with new fan technology. Supporting analysis of the mechanical design of the system will also be performed and aircraft and propulsion system simulation tools will be used to study the operation of the fan component under a number of flight conditions.

The research group that you will be involved with has a very strong research position in the area of propulsion integration with several ongoing projects in the area, both on national and on EU level in collaboration with academia and industry. This helps to build a case for a future academic career, alternatively it establishes contacts with a wide range of potential future employers in the aircraft engine industry. It is also the intention that, as part of the Ph.D. position, a 2-4 month research stay at an internationally well established university will be made.

On a societal level the research is expected to contribute to lighter and more efficient fan components, which in turn reduces fuel burn and CO2 emissions for future aircraft. This will have a positive impact on the global climate and also make it easier for the aero engine business to transition to more expensive but sustainable fuels such as biofuels, hydrogen or other types of electrofuels.

About the division

This PhD position will be a part of the division of Fluid Dynamics. Our research at the division covers turbulent flow (both compressible and incompressible), aero-acoustics and turbomachines. Our tools include both computations and experiments.
