Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral position in modelling atmospheric phenomena in wind energy
The focus area of this position is the study of the physical features of particular events occurring in the Atmospheric Boundary Layer (ABL) that have a high impact in the dynamics of wind parks and affect their performance. Examples of these events are low level jets, shallow ABLs and wind turbine blockage. This task is mainly accomplished by implementing computational models to represent the aforementioned atmospheric conditions over different regions and their interaction with wind turbines located in wind parks. The regions of interest comprise both offshore and onshore, with a particular interest in complex and forested terrains. The models that will be implemented and used for the CFD simulations should be of sufficient resolution as to represent the turbulence motions across a wind park (including rotor wakes) as well as the changes during the diurnal stability transition. Due to these demands, Large-Eddy Simulations should be employed.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Researcher in cybersecure machine learning
Machine learning is becoming a key component in many modern devices and services, ranging from personal mobile devices to autonomous vehicles or smart grids. To improve the underlying machine learning models, it is often crucial that devices share data among each other or with a central authority. This raises several privacy and cybersecurity issues and it must be ensured that both user data remains safe and that user’s privacy is ensured. In this project, we investigate how these challenges can be addressed using modern privacy-preserving approaches such as federated learning, differential privacy and machine learning using encrypted data.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral position in evolutionary ecology
This postdoctoral position forms part of the Human Frontier Science Program project “Bridging robotics and buzz pollination: Reconstructing a bee’s buzz through microrobotics” (2022-2025). It represents a collaboration between the research groups of Dr. Mario Vallejo-Marin (Uppsala University, Sweden) and Dr. Noah Jafferis (University of Massachussetts, Lowe, U.S.A.). Our project exploits new advances in micro-robotics to study a fundamental interaction between bees and flowers during buzz pollination, a phenomenon that includes thousands of plant and bee species around the world. During buzz pollination, bees from as many as 11,000 species use their indirect flight muscles to generate vibrations to shake pollen out of flowers. Buzz pollination captures one of the most striking and widespread examples of floral convergence, occurring in more than 20% of flowering plant families, including crops, such as tomatoes, which depend on vibration-producing bees.

(22) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: One researcher in software principle and technique for on-body sensory signal processing
Human body can be equipped with wearable electronic devices that generate, process and transmit data in real time to monitor health conditions and perform neurosurgical treatment for patients, for instance, suffering from Parkinson’s disease (PD), essential tremor, dystonia and other neurological conditions. One challenge to realizing such a system is to create a software toolkit for on-body secure, low-power processing and computing signals generated by sensors and actuators. The research assigned to the position has a focus on developing machine learning (ML) modules to process tactile and tremor signals generated by neuromorphic electronic skin (ne-skin). The ne-skin converts analogue tactile signals into electrical pulses, thus encoding the mechanical signals in spike timing. ML algorithms based on artificial neural networks (ANN) will be developed for processing data streams from the ne-skin. The ML algorithms mimic the computation function in the afferent nervous system prior to the brain. To support low-power and high-efficiency signal processing, ML based on spiking neural networks (SNN) will be developed to achieve local, low power signal processing on signals about tremor and tactility.

About Uppsala University, Sweden –Official Website
Uppsala University is a research university in Uppsala, Sweden. Founded in 1477, it is the oldest university in Sweden and all of the Nordic countries still in operation. It has ranked among the world’s 100 best universities in several high-profile international rankings during recent years. The university uses “Gratiae veritas naturae” as its motto and embraces natural sciences.
The university rose to pronounced significance during the rise of Sweden as a great power at the end of the 16th century and was then given a relative financial stability with the large donation of King Gustavus Adolphus in the early 17th century. Uppsala also has an important historical place in Swedish national culture, identity and for the Swedish establishment: in historiography, literature, politics, and music. Many aspects of Swedish academic culture in general, such as the white student cap, originated in Uppsala. It shares some peculiarities, such as the student nation system, with Lund University and the University of Helsinki.
Uppsala belongs to the Coimbra Group of European universities and to the Guild of European Research-Intensive Universities. The university has nine faculties distributed over three “disciplinary domains”. It has about 44,000 registered students and 2,300 doctoral students. It has a teaching staff of roughly 1,800 (part-time and full-time) out of a total of 6,900 employees. Twenty-eight per cent of the 716 professors at the university are women. Of its turnover of SEK 6.6 billion (approx. USD 775 million) in 2016, 29% was spent on education at Bachelor’s and Master’s level, while 70% was spent on research and research programs.
Architecturally, Uppsala University has traditionally had a strong presence in Fjärdingen, the neighbourhood around the cathedral on the western side of the River Fyris. Despite some more contemporary building developments further away from the centre, Uppsala’s historic centre continues to be dominated by the presence of the university.
