(03) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position for exploring the usage of neuromorphic technologies in precision Farming

We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic PhD student to work on a project funded by the Digital Society Initiative of Zurich regarding the use of neuromorphic technologies in the field of precision farming.

The project is broad enough to encompass several possible research directions, according to the interests and experience of the PhD student. It involves utilizing both digital and mixed analog-digital neuromorphic technologies to optimize greenhouse agriculture management. The idea is to proceed on two parallel levels:

  • Exploiting analog technologies developed in the NCS group for the integration of sensing, actuation, and management (primarily of water and nutrients) on a small scale in greenhouse cultivation in an extremely low-power manner.
  • Leveraging digital neuromorphic technologies (such as Loihi or implementations on RISC-V) for monitoring and optimizing greenhouse conditions. Ideally, by the end of the project, there should be communication and integration between these two levels.

Deadline : Open until filled

(06) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD – Investigating Earth’s surface properties and their evolution using optical and radar observations

The PhD candidate will explore the potential of using remote sensing data from multiple sources and related applications in the field of cryosphere and forestry. The project aims to investigate surface properties, dynamics, and tracking changes over time by integrating multi-source remote sensing data.

(11) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD Student Position: Meaning In Life in the Digital Society

This research project investigates the risks and opportunities presented by virtual reality technology (VR) and generative AI (GenAI) for meaning in life. In the last four decades, philosophers have increasingly emphasized that, contrary to a widely held philosophical position, humans are not only motivated either by self-interest or moral demands but additionally, by a pursuit of meaning in life. Digital technologies such as VR and GenAI may contribute to a meaningful life or make our lives less meaningful. However, the conceptual and normative issues around meaning in life in the digital society have been widely neglected so far. The project addresses this research gap and provides a conceptual and normative analysis of how VR and GenAI contribute to or disrupt meaning in life. The research project focuses on the impact of VR and GenAI on meaning we may achieve through relationships, creating art, and playing games. The PhD student is free to develop their own research project within the topic area of meaning in life through art and games, either in the field of general ethics (e.g., do games contribute to a meaningful life?) or applied to digital technologies (e.g., is creating art with generative AI meaningful?).

(13) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD Researcher

The “A War Without End” project, located at the intersection of history, sociology and international relations, explores the memory of the Cold War in Russia after the break-up of the Soviet Union and how it became formative of national identity. It examines how the assessment of the Cold War evolved from the Boris Yeltsin to the Vladimir Putin eras while it integrated collective memory and what role the memory of the Cold War has played in developing and supporting national narratives. It analyses how the Cold War has featured in Russian public discourse and society since 1992 and how Russian far-right, leftist, nationalist, liberal, Orthodox and other ideological groups and mnemonic communities such as Soviet-Afghan War veterans, former communist elites and victims of Soviet repressions have taken hold of the Cold War. In parallel, it examines these groups’ social prominence and influence on the Kremlin. It asks how understanding Russian elites’ complex relationship to the Cold War’s legacy helps make sense of Russia’s neo-imperial policies in Ukraine and elsewhere.

The PhD project focuses on how Russian history textbooks have treated the Cold War. It will examine Russian history textbooks production and their representation of the Cold War since 1992. It will at the same time engage with the broader topic of the instrumentalization of history for political legitimacy in Russia over the past thirty years. The project will furthermore deal with broader methodological and theoretical experts as it explores how collective memory and history interact. The successful applicant will conduct their independent research project with the support of Dr. Vassily Klimentov and Prof. Dr. Jeronim Perovic.

Deadline : 31 May 2024.
