(05) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Post-doctoral fellow in ecology
Formulation of sustainable forest policies requires solid understanding of environmental and economic impacts of alternative forest management. This postdoc links efforts of two research projects (ForestPath and Green Pole) to investigate how to balance biodiversity, climate, social values and economy as affected by forest management and policy. The postdoc will focus on predicting consequences for biodiversity of alternative forestry practices and assist in tracing them to underlying policy changes. This requires development of robust ways to relate biodiversity to forest structures that are affected by decisions on both how production forest is managed and to what extent areas are excluded from forestry. To this end, existing data will be used to develop models able to predict how management and policy options impact biodiversity in Swedish and Nordic forests.

(09) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Post-doctor in numerical analysis
In many modern applications, like medical image reconstruction, the solution of interest is described by a discontinuous function. Unfortunately, it is a priori unknown where the discontinuities are located and their location has to be determined numerically. In fact, computing discontinuities wrongly or inaccurately could be either fatal (as in obstacle and tumour detection) or scientifically costly. In this project, we solve image reconstruction problems by constructing methods that automatically adjust to the discontinuities of the underlying (observed) data. This adjustment leads to methods, which adaptively (in an iterative manner) reduce the reconstruction error, allowing to obtain the discontinuities more accurately and hence yield qualitatively better reconstructions than state-of-the-art methods, while keeping the computational complexity of the underlying problem on a manageable size.
Project 2: Randomized time stepping schemes
In this project, we focus on the temporal approximation of evolution equations. We aim to construct and analyze randomized time-stepping methods. In the past, randomized methods have been a popular tool for machine learning applications and also quadrature rules in the form of stochastic optimization schemes and Monte Carlo methods. Compared to deterministic methods, they can lead to an increased convergence order or lower computational costs depending on the type of randomization. We plan to apply these successful randomization tools in the field of temporal discretization of differential equations. In particular, we will concentrate on including splitting methods in this context.
This project is funded by the Crafoord Foundation. Read more:

Project 3: Convergence analysis of neural/universal differential equations
Here, we will study and develop numerical methods for so-called neural differential equations and more generally, universal differential equations. These are differential equations with embedded universal approximators such as neural networks. Such equations have recently proven to be very useful e.g. for data-driven model discovery and for solving high-dimensional partial differential equations. To use them effectively, they require accurate, stable and fast methods for both forward- and backward-integration of the underlying differential equation, corresponding to evaluation and training of the neural network. Most of the focus in the literature so far has been on implementation issues and on maximising speed, while less effort has been made on quantifying errors. You will help us remedy this situation by performing rigorous convergence analyses in appropriate functional analytic frameworks for both existing methods and for novel methods to be developed within the project.
This project is funded by Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP). WASP is Sweden’s largest individual research program ever, a major national initiative for strategically motivated basic research, education and faculty recruitment. The program addresses research on artificial intelligence and autonomous systems acting in collaboration with humans, adapting to their environment through sensors, information and knowledge, and forming intelligent systems-of-systems.

(10) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Post-doctor in Legal Theory or International law ref. to Quantum Computing
The Faculty of Law is advertising one post-doctoral position within the research project QSHIFT: Decision-making in the age of Quantum Computing. QSHIFT is an interdisciplinary research group located in Berlin (Neuroscience, Charité), Copenhagen (Law), St. Gallen (Media & Communication) and Lund (Law). The aim of QSHIFT is to explore the cultural, social and legal significance of quantum computing for human decision-making. The activities of QSHIFT at Lund are coordinated by Dr. Valentin Jeutner. The three-year project is funded by FORTE / CHANSE. The Lund team explores the legal significance of quantum computing within the context of human decision-making. The overarching question is whether the availability of information and technological expertise impacts a human’s ability to make independent decisions in a legally relevant manner. Specific questions in the context of quantum technology include but are not limited to, for instance, whether human decision-makers at times of crisis (e.g. war, pandemic, natural disasters) have a duty to defer to recommendations generated by quantum models; whether the emergence of highly sophisticated technologies like quantum computing undermines the decision-making autonomy of ordinary individuals; whether existing legal standards for decision-making are also applicable to quantum technology; whether the legal analysis concerning the way in which general AI impairs/enhances a human decision-maker’s decision-making process can be applied to quantum technologies.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral fellow with focus on studying the Milky Way as a galaxy using large surveys
The employee will mainly do research. The main area of research will be Galactic Archeaology, the study of the Milky Way as a galaxy. The group is working extensively with results from large spectroscopic stellar surveys of the Milky Way stars. By using these data we build an understanding of how the Milky Way formed and evolved. During the coming five years we will focus our studies on the stars-formation history of the Milky Way and how that is influenced by the merger of the Milky Way with smaller galaxies. Essential for success in this work is the continued development of age determinations for individual stars as well as for stellar populations and how the so called selection function of the surveys influence the interpretation of the results.
Deadline : 08.Nov.2022

About Lund University, Scania, Sweden – Official Website
Lund University is a prestigious university in Sweden and one of northern Europe’s oldest universities. The university is located in the city of Lund in the province of Scania, Sweden. It traces its roots back to 1425, when a Franciscan studium generale was founded in Lund. After Sweden won Scania from Denmark in the 1658 Treaty of Roskilde, the university was officially founded in 1666 on the location of the old studium generale next to Lund Cathedral.
Lund University has nine faculties, with additional campuses in the cities of Malmö and Helsingborg, with 40,000 students in 270 different programmes and 1,300 freestanding courses. The university has some 600 partner universities in nearly 70 countries and it belongs to the League of European Research Universities as well as the global Universitas 21 network. Lund University is consistently ranked among the world’s top 100 universities.
Two major facilities for materials research are in Lund University: MAX IV, a synchrotron radiation laboratory – inaugurated in June 2016, and European Spallation Source (ESS), a new European facility that will provide up to 100 times brighter neutron beams than existing facilities today, to be opened in 2023.
The university centers on the Lundagård park adjacent to the Lund Cathedral, with various departments spread in different locations in town, but mostly concentrated in a belt stretching north from the park connecting to the university hospital area and continuing out to the northeastern periphery of the town, where one finds the large campus of the Faculty of Engineering.
