(01) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD in Iron Age textile manufacture

The main objective of this PhD project should be to achieve novel knowledge of Iron Age textile production by using a combination of archaeological, experimental and/or archaeometric research methods. The manufacturing of wool and textiles of high quality involve a long and complex production sequence, based on a wide spectrum of knowledge, beginning with the breeding of sheep, feeding and grazing regimes, the plucking, sorting and dyeing of the wool, to the finished cloth or tablet woven band. Empirical knowledge of the operational chains and the spectrum of actors involved in prehistoric textile production is needed. Rather than focusing on one specific textile production technique, the successful candidate with take into account the whole complex of the production sequence and from there, zoom in on aspects of the process (production, use, deposition, context). Studies aiming to identify wool colours and thus the aesthetic and visual aspects of the Iron Age dress are also welcomed.

Deadline : 21st November 2022

(04) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD fellowship in Media and Communication

The PhD student will be researching under the broad area of “Responsible media technologies for a sustainable future,” which aims to cover overarching themes cutting across the areas of media technologies, energy and environment, and management. The aim of this project is to strengthen the consideration for technological sustainability in the Norwegian media industries and in digital policy formation, contributing to a more sustainable future in media technology development and application. We are particularly interested in submissions that investigate the role of sustainability during the production, distribution, and consumption of media content and services, both from a social and technological perspective. This includes the environmental impact of hardware production, e-waste management, and physical infrastructures such as cables and cell towers, as well as the managerial and leadership aspects that can lead to industry and policy change.

(05) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD Fellowship in Computational Fluid Dynamics and Drill String Mechanics

The drilling of wells is performed by applying weight and torque to the drill bit at the bottom of a long and slender drill string, while a fluid is circulated through the well to ensure hole cleaning and lubrication of the drill string. As the drill string can be in a complex state of vibration, and exhibit both axial, torsional and lateral vibrations, it is essential to understand how drill string vibrations affect fluid hydraulics and particle transport along the well. This research project will focus on the modelling of fluid flow and particle transport within confined, annular geometries, such as the annulus between a drill string and the borehole wall, with the goal of improving our understanding of fluid dynamics and drill string mechanics. The research will address the interaction between the solid and fluid phases by solving the coupled governing equations, and will investigate the roles of fluid rheology, flow regime and borehole inclination on the transport of particles and the drill string motion. The industrial motivation for the study is to develop more efficient diagnostics of drill string vibrations, and to enable control of particularly lateral motion of the string through new downhole tools.

Deadline : 4th November 2022

(06) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

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

The PhD Fellow will be affiliated with the following project “Ultra-linear Digital-to-analogue Conversion” (ULDAC). 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. High-resolution digital-to-analogue conversion and control has a wide array of applications, including adaptive optics, semiconductor lithography, fabrication, and inspection, laser interferometry, metrology (measurement science), imaging and manipulation in microbiology, chemistry, materials science, and scanning probe microscopy in general. Furthermore, methods relating to analogue-digital conversion will have major impact in renewable energy production and distribution, communications technology and other fields.

Deadline : 3rd November 2022

(08) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

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

The PhD Fellow will be affiliated with the following project “Ultra-linear Digital-to-analogue Conversion”. 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. The ability to use control signals to smooth non-linearities has been known in control engineering since the 1940’s, and was successfully applied to reduce friction (mechanical lubrication) in cannon turrets and quench limit cycles due to non-linear valves in hydroelectric power plants. In more recent years such methods has been extensively used in power electronics to improve power quality and reliability, to achieve “super-resolution” in digital signal processing: e.g. for image processing (most notable the Hubble space telescope), distortion-free re-quantisation between data types, or high-fidelity audio recording.
