(07) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral students in Computer Science with a focus on theoretical computer science

At the heart of computational complexity theory is the quest to understand the nature of efficient computation. What makes a problem computationally hard or easy? How can we show that every algorithm that solves a certain problem must necessarily consume a large amount of resources (such as time or memory, say)? The study of the potential and limits of efficient computation is about foundational, mathematical, research, but research results in computational complexity theory have had major impact in other areas of computer science and other scientific disciplines, and have given rise to some of the most important open problems in modern mathematics.

(09) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral student in Ethnology within the ERC project Conspirations: Conflicts Over Conspiracy Theories

In recent years, conspiracy theories have become an important issue not only to the people who propagate them, but also to those who fear their consequences and design initiatives to push back against the ‘post-truth’ era. The objective of CONSPIRATIONS is to analyse this growing tension over conspiracy theories in Europe. The project proposes an innovative approach which moves beyond an exclusive focus on ‘truthers’ to examine the perspective of ‘truth defenders’ as well. This approach goes beyond the question of who is wrong and what to do about it. Instead, it offers a deeper understanding of the conflicts themselves, which are clearly of urgent importance for contemporary Europe. The premise of this project is that the answer lies not in addressing the content of the conspiracy theories themselves, but rather the kinds of conditions that give rise to them. The secondary goal is to understand how these conflicts are influenced by social contexts, and how they unfold across diverse European settings. The objectives of this project will be achieved through ethnographic case studies

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral student in Aerosol Technology with focus on health relevant workplace emissions

Air pollution, especially airborne particles, is the primary environmental cause of death globally. To create a safe and sustainable society, we need to understand this exposure and its sources. At workplaces, air pollution levels are often particularly high, and herewe are also facing potential problems from emissions of new types of air pollution, for example from production and handling of manufactured nano materials, or recycling of batteries from the green transition.  From a health- and regulatory point of view, not only the levels of airborne pollutants are of interest, the physico-chemical properties (such as particle size, shape, and chemical composition) of the emissions govern their potential toxicity.

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral students in Electrical Engineering, two towards Cryptography and two towards Computer Security

PhDs in cryptography:

The primary duties of the two doctoral student positions are to perform research and teaching within the cryptology field. Two different main research directions are possible. The first direction is investigating the research topics of side-channel attacks on cryptographic algorithms. The student will conduct research on attacks that exploit a variety of side channels including timing, power consumption, and EM emissions, as well as fault injections. AI-assisted security evaluations of cutting-edge side-channel countermeasures are another focal research direction. The work involves developing a solid theoretical understanding of new vulnerabilities and launching real-world attacks on critical cryptographic algorithms. The direction encompasses a thorough investigation into the mathematical foundations and the safe implementation of fully homomorphic encryption (FHE). The student will investigate problems such as determining the concrete complexity of FHE security parameters as well as assessing and enhancing the efficiency and security of FHE bootstrapping. A key focus will be the methodical examination of major open-source FHE libraries, with a particular emphasis on identifying and mitigating side-channel vulnerabilities. This research is expected to involve not only the development of novel attacks but also the creation and security assessment of various protective methods. Senior researchers will be active in the project and provide supervision. The research project is funded by Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program, and the Swedish Research Council.

PhDs in computer security:

The primary duties of the doctoral student position are to perform research and teaching within the computer security area.  The research is devoted to researching security for dynamic resource allocation in next-generation mobile networks.  Dynamic task execution in future networks will require careful verification of target resources and new principles and protocols for execution target verification are needed. In addition, different protected execution environments for dynamic execution such as Intel TDX and AMD SEV have different isolation properties and side channel risks. Side channel attacks on dynamically allocated confidential tasks are within the research scope of the positions. Furthermore, the resource allocation functions can be subject to attacks, and identifying attacks and countermeasures is expected to be studied. The research method will be a combination of system studies, simulations, and experimental research. The research projects are funded by Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program, and a research project, which is a collaboration between Lund, Linköping Universities, and KTH.

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral student in Aerosol Technology: Investigating Exhaled Particles and Viruses in the Air

By aerosol we mean a particle suspension in a gas or gas mixture. The most common aerosol is our ambient air. Particles in our air environment have major effects on our health. For example, air pollution causes 9 million deaths globally each year. If smoking and airborne infection are included, the figure is more than twice as high. At the same time, airborne particles can be used for good purposes in, among other things, medical applications. Therefore, it is important to gain more knowledge about the effects of aerosols on our health.

The transmission of infectious diseases is one of humanity’s greatest health problems, yet there are large gaps in our knowledge of viruses in exhaled air and how viruses are spread in air. The purpose of the doctoral project is to gain deeper knowledge about these issues. What viruses can be found in the air? How do they get there? How long can they retain their infectivity? When is risk highest of disease spreading through the air? Is there interaction between viruses and other air pollutants? What can we do to reduce airborne infection? How does climate affect the ability of viruses to spread in the air?

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.
