(01) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title:  Postdoctoral Fellow in Solid Insulation Systems under Power Electronics Converter Stresses

The postdoctoral fellowship position is a temporary position where the main goal is to qualify for work in senior academic positions.

The Department of Electric Energy (IEL) at NTNU has a vacancy for a full-time 100% position as a Postdoctoral Fellow within the field of degradation and breakdown in solid insulation systems under power electronics converter stresses.

During the last decades power electronic converters (PECs) have been introduced to control and transform electric power – and permeate society for numerous applications: zero-emission transport, renewable energy, and transmission. The PEC is a key technology to succeed with the electrification of society and reach the climate goals set out by the EU and UN.

PECs function as on/off switches, resulting in sharp-edged square wave voltages with a high repetition rate. These sharp voltage flanks introduce different stress distributions internally in components and can induce or accelerate degradation and lead to premature breakdown. The SwoP (Impact of switched voltage waveforms on power components and grids) project will develop methods to measure, characterize, and predict the increased stresses and accelerated degradation of power components exposed to fast PECs.  Failure modes in electrical insulation will typically be partial discharges (PD), i.e., small local sparks that degrade insulation, and dielectric heating. PD measurements are feasible for quality assurance and factory assessment testing, as it identifies potential defects. However, there is no good documentation of the correlation between PD level and life expectancy. Performing ageing studies along with diagnostics (e.g., PD and dielectric spectroscopy) gives insight into the relevance and information that could be derived from PD measurement. This should be combined with analysis of the mechanical and chemical material deterioration that leads to decreased electric withstand strength. To manufacture novel and lightweight insulation systems for electric propulsion and renewable energy generation, knowledge is thus needed on degradation mechanisms and suitable insulation materials under PEC stresses.

(07) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoktor innen Samskaping og ledelse innen kommunal sektor

Postdoktorstillingen er en 2-årig kvalifiseringsstilling der hovedmålet er å kvalifisere for arbeid i vitenskapelige toppstillinger.

Har du lyst til å være med i et spennende team for å utvikle nye ledelseskompetanser og -verktøy som har implikasjoner for politiske og administrative ledelsesprosesser i kommunal sektor?

Sammensatte samfunnsproblemer kaller på radikalt nye former for samskaping mellom mange typer aktører. Samskapingsbegrepet brukes ofte pragmatisk, uten at forventninger til prosess eller effekter er tydelig avklart opp mot ansvar, styring, ledelse, strategi eller politiske prosesser. ​Dagens politisk-administrative system er fortsatt lite hensiktsmessig innrettet mot å mobilisere samskaping i praksis. Ulike styringslogikker anvendes ofte parallelt, noe som gjør at politiske og administrative ledere i kommunene møtes med legitime, men også motsetningsfylte og krevende forventninger om samtidig å skulle styre og involvere, og mellom å legitimere og stå til ansvar for beslutninger. Dette utfordringsbildet er lite utforsket og konkretisert med tanke på utvikling av ny ledelsespraksis i kommunene.

(08) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Post-doc Fellow in Fault Detection, Isolation and Recovery for Distributed-Parameter Systems

The postdoctoral fellowship position is a temporary position where the main goal is to qualify for work in senior academic positions.

As companies accumulate increasingly large amounts of data to monitor and potentially enhance performance across various facets of their business, there is a growing need for methods that automate data analysis and subsequent decision-making processes. The objective of this post-doctoral research project is to develop general methods for Fault Detection, Isolation, and Recovery (FDIR) in systems governed by hyperbolic partial differential equations.

Hyperbolic PDEs model processes such as flow in pipes, water/gas distribution networks, power grids, irrigation channels, and road traffic—essentially, systems with transport phenomena and delays. A challenge in estimating parameters and states, as well as controlling these systems, arises from the fact that measurements and actuations are typically confined to the boundaries of the domain. This limitation is evident in scenarios like oil well drilling, where sensing and actuation occur on the rig, while potential faults that may threaten the safety of personnel, equipment integrity, and the environment, occur kilometers away near the bottom of the well. Examples of applications relevant to this project’s FDIR focus include the detection and localization of washout (a leak between the drill string and

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Fellow on multi-scale and through process modelling of aluminium alloys

Development of new alloys and products in industry is to a large extent based on trial-and-error experimental approaches, which is both costly and time consuming. This becomes more critical for the metal and manufacturing industries, with application of more recycling-based metals in the production cycles and with the broader application of AM technology. To realize such computation-engineering-based alloy and product development, a series of through-scale and through-process physical models are necessary. More importantly, a full and effective coupling between individual microstructure, processing and property models must be achieved.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Researchers in Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience

There are a number of cyber test ranges available (including in Europe) but the federated approach and advanced cyber physical test range capability are two elements of the FACT project which makes it disruptive and unique. The focus on Operational Technology (OT) is increasing when it comes to military systems, and the cyber physical aspect is thus of greatest importance for the FACT project. Military platforms are not easily transferable to a relevant location for test. However, the federated approach in the FACT project will allow the physical part to be implemented at more than one location, and still make use of the full capability of the partners capabilities during the testing. To ensure that the equipment is used and has a required level of protection, the FACT project will design, prototype and demonstrate a federated cyber physical test capability which can be maintained and become a sustained capability to the European nations after the project. Our approach is fully user-centric, with the end-user’s needs as the starting point for the whole capability and every consideration. Examples of test scenario setups where the federated aspect of FACT is an advantage are numerous: larger partners wanting to cooperate in larger system deliveries, smaller companies cooperating with several partners within their complimentary field of expertise, sharing vulnerabilities and mitigating actions on equipment across partners and nations for shortening time to market.
