Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdocs in Nuclear Power Safety
Nuclear Power Safety (NPS) Division seeks two engaged postdocs to study (i) in-vessel corium melt retention (IVMR) in small modular reactor (SMR) of PWR type, and (ii) ex-vessel melt-coolant interactions and melt spreading. The projects are supported by Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (https://www.stralsakerhetsmyndigheten.se/) and APRI (https://www.apri.se/). The IVMR research will be towards adaptation of the conventional IVR methodology developed for and used in the medium- and large-power PWRs and its further implementation in new SMR designs. The expected results are demonstration of potential efficiency of the IVMR strategy, which can significantly improve SMR safety performance by preservation of integrity of reactor pressure vessel, i.e. the existing safety barrier. For the research on ex-vessel melt-coolant interactions and melt spreading, the experiments will be performed in the DEFOR and CoSMUS facilities at KTH (https://www.physics.kth.se/nps/research/facilities) toward understanding of relevant phenomena important to ex-vessel corium risk assessment.

(05) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc in correlative super-resolution MINFLUX imaging (EU proj. NanoVIB)
We seek an engaged postdoc to join our lab at KTH (http://www.biomolphysics.kth.se/, Widengren lab) to work within an ongoing high-profile EU research project (NanoVIB, https://www.nanovib.eu/). You will work with super-resolution MINFLUX imaging, recently installed in the lab, to expand this imaging technique into the near-IR and combine it with label-free stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) and two-photon excitation (TPE) imaging. As a lead application for this development, we will image surface proteins of pneumococci at molecular resolution, correlated to the morphology and chemical environment (SRS/TPE) of the bacteria, to understand their role in disease. This highly interdisciplinary project is performed in close collaboration with partners in Sweden (Karolinska), Germany (Abberior Instruments, Inst Nanophotonics, APE) and Switzerland (PI imaging), with good possibilities for research/exchange visits during the postdoc. Together with researchers and PhD students in the KTH research group (~10 persons), you will work on optimization of excitation and labeling schemes for MINFLUX, combine this with SRS and TPE imaging (with prototype instruments on place in the lab), and then demonstrate the combined use for bacterial imaging. We expect this work to lead to high-impact publications both on the methodological (bionanophotonics) and application (bacteriology) side.
(06) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdocs in Self-learning Systems for Automated Cybersecurity
The research involves mathematical and algorithmic modeling and analysis, as well as system design, implementation, and experimentation. The research follows an approach where cyberattacks and response actions on an IT infrastructure are modeled as a game between an attacker and a defender and where strategies of attackers and defenders co-evolve through self-play. The game model is based on attack graphs and system architecture models. Reinforcement learning techniques are studied to approximate optimal control strategies. In addition to analytical modeling and analysis, a testbed and a simulation environment is available and further developed for experimentation, training, and evaluation of control strategies. Cyber ranges hosting realistic IT infrastructure environments are also available. The successful candidate will join a group of researchers that work on topics related to this project.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc in Large-scale distributed machine learning
With the development of computing and communication technologies, and emerging data-driven applications, e.g., IoT based intelligent systems, social network analysis and vehicular networks, the volume of data for various learning systems increases explosively along with the number of involving computing nodes. Thus, large-scale distributed machine learning (e.g., federated learning, and alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM)) has been pervasive in our societies and industries. However, the practical performance of DML is often limited by various bottlenecks and is still far from theoretical upper limits. Thus, this project will develop efficient theories, algorithms and schemes to achieve reliable, secure and low-complexity large-scale DML. One key approach is to exploit network and channel coding schemes. Theoretical analysis will be performed using learning and communication tools (e.g., graph model, coding and information theory, optimization). The result will also be verified by simulations with true data. The project will be hosted by the Division of Information Science and Engineering, EECS school. The project is funded by Swedish Research Council (VR). You will have opportunities to work on cutting-edge information and data science and engineering.
