PhD position summary/title: PhD position in recovering metals and materials from end-of-life Lithium-ion Batteries (LIBs)

We are looking for a motivated person who is interested in joining our team as a PhD candidate to work within the project HolE-LIB – Developing a Holistic Ecosystem for Sustainable Repurposing and/or Recycling of Lithium-ion Batteries (LIBs) in Norway and EU, funded by NTNU Sustainability Call 2021. A total of 5 PhDs will be working within the scope of the project across four faculties and six departments at NTNU. The successful candidate will be working at the Mineral Processing Laboratory at NTNU. Research and education at the Mineral Processing Laboratory at NTNU provide vital knowledge on sustainable processing of ores and minerals and the recovery of valuable components from industrial waste. The laboratory is unique in Norway and plays a strategically important role in the shift towards a greener and more circular economy. From Norway’s perspective, the battery value chain can be seen as an exceptional sustainable value creation opportunity primarily based on Norway’s comparative advantage with a competence-driven materials sector based on renewable power. The sustainability depends in part on the ability to reuse and recycle batteries and the compounds they contain. Research into factors which affect customer acceptance in case of repurposed batteries is so far extremely limited. On the other hand, a robust recycling process needs to be developed that can cater to different battery types, designs, chemistries, etc. for competitive disruption of the battery market. Currently, there exists no techno-economically efficient Li recycling process and further, the graphite from lithium-ion battery (LIB) anodes is not recycled. Development of innovative separation processes are expected to positively impact the circular economy and enable sustainable business model (SBM) innovation.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Candidate in Environment- and Task-specific Evolutionary Design of Aerial Robots

Aerial robotics have scored significant successes yet – interestingly – they have long employed designs that merely represent miniaturizations of manned aviation concepts or have resorted to biomimetic concepts. An alternative paradigm however is possible if we combine the forces of evolutionary robot design (airframe, sensing) and data-driven navigation policy learning in an iterative loop that can allow us to identify the novel designs and autonomy functionalities necessary towards aerial robots that are best tailored to their environment or a certain task of interest. Within this broader scope, the PhD candidate in this position will work on the challenging problems of a) defining the process for evolving aerial robot designs (genotype/phenotype and evolutionary algorithms) that build upon rotary propulsion, incorporate airframe softness and embed diverse sensing, alongside b) the automated composition of the simulation environments needed to offer the diverse “training worlds” necessary to tailor the body and autonomy of such aerial robots in a class of environments or tasks of interest (e.g., fast flight under the canopy of a forest or inspecting industrial facilities). The fitness signal to guide the evolutionary algorithms shall be based on the performance of a learned navigation policy tailored to the evolved robot designs. The collective work will be undertaken by a team of researchers in our lab and through our collaborators. The envisioned contributions will break new ground in the domain of purposeful and environment/task-specific robot design and autonomy. The activity will be part of European project that includes extensive university and industry collaboration and thus many opportunities for international collaboration. The position is part of the Autonomous Robots Lab activities in resilient robotic autonomy across diverse operational conditions and environments. The Autonomous Robots Lab has leading research in robotic autonomy and demonstrated performance in a collection of world-class projects funded by both European and US sources.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Candidate in Semantics-aware Exploration & Inspection of Marine Vessels using Aerial Robots

Robotic inspection of large-scale marine vessels, such as tanker ships or floating production systems necessitates efficient behaviours that are attuned to the specific information that certain structures of the facility offer for the assessment of its overall health. However, existing autonomy methods fail to incorporate the specific information associated with certain “semantics” in the environment (e.g., structures in the context of marine vessel inspection). Therefore, the state-of-the-art in tasks such as exploration or inspection treats the environment in a unified way without explicit focus on the areas that truly matter from the perspective of top-down motivations (e.g., for an inspection mission).  Motivated by the above, in this position we call for a PhD candidate who will investigate the exciting problem of semantics-aware exploration and inspection path planning. This shall involve two core research directions, namely a) developing hybrid metric-semantic environment representations, and b) developing relevant planning policies through the combination of sampling-based algorithms and deep learning strategies for informative planning. The developed algorithms shall be deployed onboard high-end collision-tolerant flying robots tasked to explore ballast water tanks of diverse real vessels using both remote sensing techniques and contact-based non-destructive testing. This PhD position is within a European project that includes extensive university and industry collaboration and thus many opportunities for international collaboration.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Candidate in Redefining Multi-Robot Search And Rescue Autonomy

Search And Rescue (SAR) has long represented a core challenge and opportunity for robotics. Despite the efforts, however, robots are rarely and sparsely used in real-life SAR operations. Beyond logistical aspects or issues of social acceptance the fact is that SAR tasks are extremely demanding, time-critical and often take place in particularly harsh environments. Building upon our experiences from the DARPA Subterranean Challenge, and within the scope of a new soon-to-start European project on Search and Rescue, this PhD position calls to redefine how diverse multi-robot teams undertake SAR missions autonomously. Focusing on the collaboration of legged and flying robots, in this research we seek to equip such robots with semantic reasoning, enhanced multi-modal perception and the planning & decision-making autonomy that shall render robots “mission-complete” for real-life complex SAR missions. Alongside algorithmic contributions, there is a major element of field deployments within the scope of this position. The position is part of the Autonomous Robots Lab activities in resilient robotic autonomy across diverse operational conditions and environments. The Autonomous Robots Lab has leading research in robotic autonomy and demonstrated performance in a collection of world-class projects funded by both European and US sources.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Candidate in Human Geography with a focus on just and sustainable energy-transitions

Department of Geography at NTNU has a 3-year vacancy for a PhD position in human geography with the possibility for an additional year for teaching duties. The PhD is thematically focused on just and sustainable energy transitions. The goal of this position is to complete a doctoral education leading to the attainment of a doctoral degree. The successful candidate is expected to develop a PhD project that investigates the interplay between policies for green energy transitions in Norway and the EU, and the extraction of critical minerals in the Global South. Of particular importance is examining the role of civil society organizations in shaping political and corporate governance strategies concerning energy transitions and mineral extraction Today, green energy transition in Norway and the EU sits at a critical conjuncture. Recent warnings by the IPCC about the need to hasten transitions in energy production and the EU commitment to fight climate change, underline the need for policy makers and industries to act. The Russian-Ukrainian war has put further emphasis in the EU on diversifying energy sources and to secure energy independence. Large scale regional energy transitions rely on a steady increase of raw material supplies, including critical minerals essential for developing renewable energy. Consequently, pressure is put on both resource rich regions in the Global South to expand and open new sites of mineral extraction, and to open sites for mineral extraction within Norway and the EU. The speed and impact of this development has given rise to increasing conflicts and social tensions on different geographical scales, resulting in strong engagement from civil society organizations both in Europe and the Global South posing questions about the fairness and sustainability of energy transitions.

To realize this several PhD candidates with partly overlapping competences will work closely together, each focusing on one of the following areas: 1) baseline Digital Mobility Twin (DMT) using site surveys and available geo-located data, 2) dynamically updated DMT using IoT, sensors, 5G and edge computing, 3) BigData and AI to create value from all the sensor data sent from the physical twin, e.g. in the form of decision support and automation, 4) autonomy and simulation (this PhD position) to train AI agents and simulate “what-if” scenarios, and 5) XR and Visualization to interact with the DMT throughout its life-cycle (construction and use) and increase citizens engagement and feedback before things have been built physically.
