(01) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD Fellowship in Subsurface Geosciences

Geothermal energy exploration will play an important role in the future to alleviate CO2 emissions. The average geothermal gradient in the North Sea is 34.6 ℃/km, but geothermal gradients higher than 45℃/km have been identified in areas such as the Central Graben, and the central part of the Utsira High (Kubala et al., 2003; Marín et al., 2022). The reasons for these high geothermal gradients are poorly understood. High geothermal gradients have been related to shallow Moho because of Quaternary deglaciation, or the presence of salt diapirs (Kubala et al., 2003; Nolan et al., 2021). In addition, the key elements of the geothermal play concept are not well defined in the North Sea, and it is unknown whether economic geothermal production can take place. Preliminary observations suggest that different aquifer levels can be potential geothermal reservoirs in the SW Norwegian North Sea (Dyskeland, 2022). Some of these reservoirs were deposited during active faulting and salt tectonism, therefore their distribution and geometry are complex. The quality of these reservoirs and aquifers is uncertain, since many have not been the main target of hydrocarbon exploration.

(02) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD Fellowship in cancer metabolism using 3D tumour models

The PhD Fellow will be affiliated with the research group CellMet led by Assoc. Prof. Hagland and the project «3D tumor derived cancer spheroids for precision medicine (3D TUDEPOINT)», as well as collaborate with the Gastrointestinal surgical research group at Stavanger University Hospital (SUH). Our research focus is on how changes in the extracellular environment affect cancer cell metabolism and drug response. We study these changes using 3D cancer models (organoids, cancer spheroids) and correlate to clinical material together with our collaborators at Stavanger University Hospital.

Deadline : 15th July 2022

(03) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD Fellowship in Methods for Linearising Switched and Quantised Systems

The project aims to develop methods for linearising switched and quantised systems. Existing methods include pulse-width modulation, delta-sigma modulation, noise-shaping, dithering and model-predictive control. The project will aim at developing methods suitable for high bandwidth and low computational complexity.

(04) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD Fellowship in Control for Digital-to-analogue Converters and Switched Systems

The project aims to develop methods for digital-to-analogue conversion enabling a dynamic range in excess of 1 part-per-million (21 effective number of bits), at high speed and with low latency, using advanced control theory and dithering techniques in combination with the latest CMOS fabrication technology. This level of performance has never been achieved before and will define the new state-of-the-art in the field.

(05) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Phd in Iron Age textile manufacture: biography, apprenticeship and knowledge production

The main objective of this PhD-project should be to achieve novel knowledge of Iron Age textiles and wool production, by using a combination of archaeological, experimental and/or archaeometric research methods.  Wool is a central component in Iron Age textile products. The Museum of Archaeology wishes to activate and showcase an understudied material in the collection: our unique corpus of wool textiles from southwest Norway. The Migration period in particular stands out due to its wealth of information regarding textile production, in particular high quality textile products, such as the tablet woven bands. The material from south-western Norway can be the main focus of the study or can be compared with material from other regions in Norway or further afield. Applicants can also choose other geographical areas, materials and periods for comparison, if suited to meet the objectives

Deadline : 13th June 2022
