PhD position summary/title: PhD positions – High-performance Simulation and Optimization of Energy Systems

In response to the urgent demands arising from climate change in an ever-growing global economy, as well as the goal of reducing dependence on imported energy sources and raw materials, the European energy system is facing a paradigm shift: away from a system based on the import of fossil fuels and relying on centralized utilities operated by large power plants, towards a dynamic, supply- and demand-driven approach, often organized in local energy communities where renewable energy is the main source. To maintain an efficient, sustainable, and stable energy supply, the integration of different infrastructures such as the electricity, gas and heat sectors and the fluctuating availability of energy pose complex challenges for both the European energy system and local energy systems.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position – Electronic system design and modeling for qubit initialization and readout in a scalable quantum architecture

To make the vision of a universal quantum computer reality, we are working on scalable electronic architectures based on semiconductor spin quantum bits (qubits). For ultimately scaling up the number of qubits into the millions, it is crucial to move parts of the control electronics closer to the qubits. To achieve this, we design and implement integrated cryogenic circuits for qubit control and readout in state-of-the-art CMOS technologies. Since the qubits are extremely sensitive to disturbances and operate in temperatures down to a few hundred millikelvins, the requirements on power consumption, noise and area are severe. For this reason, it is necessary to develop new and groundbreaking architectures and circuit topologies. Modeling electronics and their interfaces to qubits in this challenging environment is an essential part of this. Specific tasks are

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position – Robust Energy Supply: The impact of disruptive events on the security of supply of the integrated German energy system

Current political events highlight the vital importance of a robust and affordable energy supply. This thesis will primarily address questions pertaining to the security of supply of the existing and future sector-coupled German energy system within both a European and global context. In the course of this research, you will investigate which disruptive events and crises could endanger the security of supply and what an effective strategy for a robust energy supply could look like.
Thereby, you will identify potentially disruptive events from the perspective of energy demand and derive short- and medium-term scenarios so as to be able to investigate them using existing energy system models from the IEK-3. In doing so, you will explore questions such as: What black swan events, natural disasters, political decisions or crises, and what technological innovations, would be conceivable and how can these be modeled? How would these affect the energy system, and how would the energy system need to be designed for a robust energy supply? To answer these, you will contribute to the further development an existing energy system model based on Python. Your tasks include:

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral Project Opportunity – Local Self-Supervision for Closed-Loop Visual Reasoning

The institutes PGI-15 and INM-6 have a common aim to understand brain function from a computa-tional point of view, and use this knowledge to create new technologies. Despite the success of recent AI models, the brain is still unparalleled in its ability to adapt to complex environments, and does so in a highly energy-efficient manner. This project aims to combine local learning and neuro-morphic computing to achieve energy efficient networks that can reason in complex environments. You will work on layer-local self-supervised learning rules in context-modulated network architec-tures. We will test these learning rules in a brain-inspired multitask setting, where a single network should learn to solve large numbers of tasks in a context-dependent manner. We will then embed the networks in a closed-loop visual reasoning architecture. The resulting system will be imple-mented on neuromorphic hardware, such as memristive crossbar arrays and/or Intel Loihi.

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral Project Opportunity – Lattice Damage by Hydrogen at Sub-Threshold Ion Energies

Hydrogen (H), the most prospective carbon-neutral energy carrier, is a ubiquitous impurity in crystalline solids exhibiting many unique properties upon interactions with lattice atoms and/or crystal defects. One such unique property is the unexpected formation of lattice damage and in turn H-supersaturated surface layers (HSSL) in metals exposed to H plasma/ion irradiation with sub-threshold ion energies. Sophisticated experimental design and advanced techniques are available to ‘see’ H retained at defect microstructures in the nanometer-thick HSSL and to further explore its formation mechanism, microstructure evolution process, including but not limited to transmission electron microscopy (TEM), nuclear reaction analysis (NRA) and atom probe tomography (APT). The project will be jointly supervised by experts from the Institute of Energy & Climate Research (IEK-4: Plasma Physics) and the Ernst Ruska-Centre for Microscopy and Spectroscopy with Electrons (ER-C-2: Materials Science and Technology).

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral Project Opportunity – An Organoid Co-Culture System as a Model for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is driven by diffuse astroglial and neuronal injury followed by secondary injury cascades of cellular toxicity, inflammation, and aggregation of toxic proteins. However, the complex interplay of glial cells remains to be elucidated in both trauma and regeneration. Our current mechanistic understanding of TBI in in vitro models has been primarily derived from two-dimensional models. Nevertheless, the in vivo situation is much more complex and warrants 3D impact platforms, addressing the spatiotemporal details of cellular injury strains on human interconnected neuronal-astroglial networks. Using 3D brain organoids incorporating microglia (INM-3) combined with fast forming, simplified neural co-culture systems (IBI-2), the doctoral researcher will use both systems to apply defined strain and compression signals simulating TBI.

PhD position summary/title:  PhD Position – Development of new UHV Technologies for the “Einstein Telescope for Graviational Waves Detection”

Gravitational waves from colliding black holes, exploding stars or maybe from dark ages of the universe tell us about the evolution of our cosmos. Following the Nobel Prize in physics of 2017, we are now planning the next generation of even more sensitive observations. The so-called “Einstein-Telescope” (ET) is European`s future in gravitational wave detection. It might be built in the Euregio. For more information, see https://www.einsteintelescope.nl or https://www.et-gw.eu . Gravitational waves are detected by laser interferometers based on the concept of the Michelson Interferometer. The ET will include six of those interferometers with arm lengths of 10 km each in an underground, triangular configuration. To avoid interaction of the laser beams with air or any residual gas the laser beams will travel in ultrahigh vacuum tubes (UHV) with a diameter of approximately 1 m. In total, there will be 120 km of those tubes. It will be by far the largest UHV system ever built. You will work on the design of the vacuum system.
