PhD position summary/title: PhD Candidate in Sociology or Political Science connected to the research group CHAIN

The PhD project will be based on CHAIN’s new “rotating module on the social determinants of health”, which is currently being implemented into the 11th round of the European Social Survey (ESS). This is a repetition of the module that was implemented in ESS7 in 2014 (First Pan-European Sociological Health Inequalities Survey of the General Population: The European Social Survey Rotating Module on the Social Determinants of Health | European Sociological Review | Oxford Academic (oup.com)). The module is the only international sociological health survey with a comparative focus, and the data from ESS11 will become available in November 2024. Until the data is ready, the PhD student should use other rounds of the ESS. The project will examine how effective countries with different welfare systems and pandemic mitigation strategies (such as school closures, social distancing, and measures at workplaces) have been in protecting their population’s health, and their social determinants through the pandemic, by applying ESS round 7 and 11). The Nordic welfare states are under pressure, but the pandemic may be seen as a natural experiment that can bring the real value of the Nordic model to light. For example, it could be worthwhile to examine how the Nordic countries differ from other European countries that do not have as widespread universal welfare schemes. One could expect that the Nordic countries have fared better because they have social support schemes that protect disadvantaged groups to a greater extent who also suffer from a higher proportion of chronic diseases. Within the Nordic region, it would be particularly interesting to compare Norway and Sweden, which chose very different pandemic strategies. ESS11 would allow for an examination of what the pandemic has meant for the socially stratified development of 1) lifestyles (e.g. alcohol and diet), 2) material prosperity (e.g. income, quality of housing), 3) work (e.g. unemployment and working environment) , 4) psychosocial factors (for example, perception of control), 5) use of health services (for example, alternative treatment and informal health care), and 6) health (especially mental health).

PhD position summary/title: PhD Candidate in Multi-scale characterization of metamaterial structures (METRAMAT MSCA – DC6)

We are looking for a PhD candidate for one of the ten PhD positions in METRAMAT project; a European Doctoral Network funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2022 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action (MSCA). The main objective of METRAMAT Doctoral Network project is to actively train young researchers to become skilled in metamaterial development by researching and creating a combined set of design, simulation, manufacturing, testing, reliability assessment and integration tools that will strengthen the European manufacturing industry and lead to a sustainable society. The manufacturing industry is fundamental to the technological sovereignty and competitiveness of the European economy. To maintain the leading position, the sector requires continuous innovations, exploring the limits of material properties. This is particularly the case in high-end technology applications, such as lithography machines and micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) industry, where the limits of conventional materials come into sight. Metamaterials, built up from rationally, pre-designed architected substructures, hold the promise to outperform conventional materials and redefine the boundaries of industrial design practices. The metamaterial potential can drive the much-needed transformational changes in European manufacturing industry. However, the wide-spread use of metamaterials is hindered by the lack of knowledge of (i) design-for-production principles for metamaterials, (ii) integration at component and system level and (iii) design-for-reliability of metamaterials. METRAMAT will train and deliver 10 researchers skilled in metamaterial development by researching and creating a combined set of design, simulation, manufacturing, testing, reliability assessment and integration tools. The involvement of MEMS, lithography and additive manufacturing industries ensures that scientific training is tuned to existing industrial challenges requiring new fundamental solutions, such as positioning accuracy, sensor sensitivity or shielding of external vibrational disturbances, with emphasis on design for manufacturability and reliability. Together with the transferable skills training, secondments and network, this will provide the doctoral candidates a strong basis for a successful career in industry or academia. The new scientific insights, engineering tools and educational programs to be developed within METRAMAT program will pave the way to wide-spread manufacturing and application of metamaterials in European industry, elevating it to the next level.

PhD position summary/title: PhD and PD positions in the HYDROGENi team

HYDROGENi is a Centre for environment-friendly energy research (FME) dedicated to the research and innovations within hydrogen and ammonia needed to meet the 2030 and 2050 goals of the Norwegian hydrogen road map. HYDROGENi’s activities are a collaborative effort from Norwegian and European partners (industry, universities, and research institutes) that cover the entire hydrogen value chain. Hydrogen’s role in the energy transition was previously thought to be a “clean” alternative to fossil fuels in cars. However, it can also replace fossil fuels in industrial processes, such as coal in the steel industry, and in the maritime sector. Hydrogen is now considered to be one of the main drivers of the green shift. To realise hydrogen’s full potential, there are important knowledge- and technology gaps that need to be filled.

(07) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD Candidate in Electric Insulation and Flow Dynamics in Power Transformer Windings

A secure energy supply requires a robust and resilient power and transmission system. Significant investment in electric power systems is needed in the coming decade to meet growing energy demands. Reinvestments should be done in a way that minimizes environmental impact and preserves reliability. Liquid-filled high-voltage power transformers play a crucial role in electric production, transmission, and distribution systems. The liquid serves as electrical insulation and cooling for the transformer windings. Mineral oils, derived from non-renewable crude oil with low biodegradability, have long been the dominant insulating liquids. However, new alternatives with environmental, HSE, and technical benefits have emerged. The NewLifT project, which this PhD position is associated with, focuses on the thermal properties of these new insulating liquids. The PhD will work with a multidisciplinary research team to examine the impact of liquid viscosity on cooling capabilities, particularly at low temperatures. The research may involve both experimental and numerical/analytic work, and the candidate’s background and interests will determine the balance. The PhD will focus on modelling and measuring liquid flow in a laboratory flow rig.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Candidate in life prediction of nickel-based alloys under hydrogen environment

A PhD position is available at the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering within the field of life prediction of nickel-based alloys under hydrogen environment. Nickel-based alloys are extensively used in the oil and gas industry owing to their excellent mechanical properties under harsh environment. Nevertheless, multiple field failures have been reported over the last years, indicating hydrogen-assisted cracking/hydrogen embrittlement (HE) caused by the presence of hydrogen in the environment. Alarmed by this “time bomb” scenario, the oil and gas industry in Norway is attempting to establish a practical guideline related to HE in nickel-based alloys. To meet the urgent industrial needs, microstructure-informed hydrogen embrittlement life prediction of nickel-based alloys (Helife) project, funded by the Research Council of Norway, aims to provide the scientific basis for establishing a practical guideline for HE assessment of both the existing components made of precipitation-hardened nickel alloys and the promising strain-hardened alloys for the subsea applications. The research will focus on investigating the mechanisms of selected materials with representative microstructures under controlled hydrogen environments and well-defined loading conditions, using multiscale mechanical testing and characterization approaches. We are looking for you who want to collaborate with industrial partners and conduct in depth research in this field.

(11) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD Candidate in Model-Driven Verification and Validation of Software Systems

The objective of this position is exploring new Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) techniques for the Verification and Validation (V&V) of modern software systems. The focus will be in particular on advancing techniques for systems developed with modern approaches, which include for example the integration of AI-based components and large language models (LLMs). Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) is a software and system development paradigm centered around structured models. Models are defined according to precise Domain-Specific Languages (DSL), so that they can be used as input to automated code generators and other automation tasks. MDE finds application in repetitive and complex manual tasks: it has been extensively used for V&V tasks, in which information on a complex system needs to be processed and transformed in different ways.While Model-Driven V&V practices are relatively established for traditional systems, the changes in software development practices in recent years raise new challenges and opportunities. On the one hand, new development techniques like continuous integration can synergize with MDE automated generation of artifacts. On the other hand, the spreading of generative AI techniques, like Large Language Models (LLMs), open up new opportunities for the development of DSLs, but also new areas of application.
