This project aims to develop models and solutions to identifying and mitigate potential threats and vulnerabilities specific to robotic systems.

The PhD project will, depending on the skills of the applicant, focus on one or more of the following topics: 

  • developing effective intrusion detection systems for robots, which requires a deep understanding of the robot’s behavior and environment, 
  • Machine learning techniques, including anomaly detection and pattern recognition, applied to identify deviations from normal robot behavior, 
  • next-generation security and privacy requirements, and solutions for cyber-safe robotics, 
  • human-robot interaction security.

The candidate is expected to collaborate with experts from diverse fields, such as robotics, law, and cybersecurity, to ensure a holistic approach to addressing the security challenges in robotics. The position is part of the project “Cyber-Safe Robotics” funded by Industriens fond.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position in Flexible Integration of Electrolyzers and Power-to-X Technologies into Smart Energy Systems

Flexibility is key to tackling the variability of renewable energy sources and a flexible electricity demand-side process can potentially reduce fuel production cost. Besides, the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of power-to-X technologies highly depend on the type of electrolysis technology and electrolyzer operating hours on the site. As demonstrated, flexibility in the electrolysis technology is crucial to integrate the massive fluctuating renewable capacities necessary to meet climate goals cost-effectively. This project compares the dynamic performance of different types of electrolyzers in a power-to-X system under the framework of high installed wind and solar power capacities that we will have in Denmark in the near future, and assuming the other varying background conditions, i.e. the hour-by-hour electricity price variations, seasonal variation of CO2 availability, seasonal and daily variation of district heating demand, 24-hour variations in electricity grid capacity at electrolyzer location and potential seasonal variations in heat supply from waste incineration at electrolyzer locations.

PhD position summary/title: Ph.D. position available: Stability of pharmaceutical suspensions

Pharmaceutical suspensions have a number of uses, most pronounced as formulations for the pediatrics population as well as long acting injectibles. Suspensions are disperse systems, hence they are thermodynamically unstable. The current framework to predict the stability of disperse systems relies on the Derjaguin-Landau-Verwey-Overbeek (DLVO) theory for aggregation of aqueous dispersions, however, there is surprising little novel investigation into the field of suspension stability and the application of AI and ML have not been extensively employed in the field.

PhD position summary/title: Ph.d.-stilling: Fama and Public Opinion in Kirkekampen/ The Church Struggle (1245-1302)

Om Projektet ”Fama in Medieval Denmark (c. 1240-1340): Rumors, Reputation and Public Opinion”
I middelalderens Europa blev en person defineret af sit famaFama omfatter omdømme, erindring, “hvad folk ved”, den offentlige mening, sladder, rygter, berømmelse og at være berygtet. Derfor havde fama en direkte forbindelse til en persons politiske og juridiske status. Fra ca. 1200 fik rygter og fama gyldighed som juridisk bevis på grund af pavemagtens bestræbelser på at finde og bekæmpe kættere.  Snart indså paver, biskopper og konger dog, at det også kunne bruges til at disciplinere uregerlige embedsmænd og undersåtter. Kulminationen indtraf i 1302, da den franske konge anklagede paven for kætteri på baggrund af rygter og en “offentlig mening”, der havde til formål at underminere pavens fama. FMD vil undersøge effekten af fama, rygter og den offentlige mening på politik og det øverste samfundsniveau i middelalderens Danmark, ca. 1240-1340. I denne periode oplevede riget politiske omvæltninger, der resulterede i magtkampe, oprør og sammensværgelser. Endvidere forsøgte nogle af landets gejstlige ledere at etablere sig som en “stat i staten”. Samtidig udvidede kongerne målrettet de royale magtbeføjelser. I historieskrivningen er denne kamp kendt som Kirkekampen. FMD’s hypotese er, at fama spillede en afgørende rolle i den danske elites magtkampe, da parterne forsøgte at konstruere og bruge rygter som våben for at påvirke den offentlige mening med henblik på at skabe eller ødelægge personers fama. Dette blev hjulpet på vej af en juridisk institutionaliseringsproces. I det 13. århundrede trængte den ind i alle aspekter af samfundet, og fama fik juridisk gyldighed. Dermed fik fama og rygter en øget betydning for, påvirkning på og endda skabelse af den offentlige mening.

Om Ph.d.-projektet
Ph.d.-projektet skal undersøge, hvorledes ledende danske gejstlige mobiliserede fama, rygter, den offentlige holdning etc. for at opnå maksimal personlig indflydelse i Danmark samt størst mulig grad af autonomi for den danske kirke som institution.

Gennem af kvalitative og semantiske studier af kildematerialet og med inddragelse af historisk-sociologiske metoder, skal projektet udforske udvalgte danske gejstliges strategiske brug af fama-relaterede ord og kommunikation til at fremme deres position såvel imod kongemagten som generelt i samfundet. Her spiller Kirkekampen (ca. 1241-1302) en central rolle, og projektet skal berøre aspekter af denne strid. Projektet kan i denne forbindelse for eksempel fokusere på udvalgte bispers retoriske strategier imod kongemagten, hvorledes krøniker og klosterannaler blev benyttet til at fremme bestemte gejstlige eller kirkelige institutioners fama og/ eller svække modstanderes ditto eller hvorledes kirkeretslige redskaber, f.eks. ekskommunikation og interdikt, blev benyttet til at styrke gejstlige personer eller institutioners magt, indflydelse og omdømme.
