PhD position summary/title: Doctoral Candidate to join the Computational Chemistry group

In this position, you will have a chance to be a part of research project that is focused on developing explainable artificial intelligence (XAI) based tools to accelerate the development of redox flow battery (RFB) chemistries. Specifically, we will develop DFT based computational screening and machine learning (ML) tools to facilitate rapid evaluation of RFB materials to identify the most promising candidates. We will use new Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) methods to rationalize the vast amount of computational data. With DFT methods we can compute the structures and properties of tens of thousands of molecules, and XAI will then enable us to pinpoint the important molecular features contributing to the redox potential and other properties such as stability and reactivity. Armed with this information, we can design selected sets of new promising molecules and evaluate their properties more rigorously with computational methods. The computational group will work in close collaboration with flow battery group in University of Turku (Prof. Peljo) and organic chemistry group in University of Jyväskylä (prof. Pihko).

PhD position summary/title: HICT: Doctoral Candidate in Civic Agency in AI? Democratizing Algorithmic Services in the City (CAAI)

The public sector is increasingly embracing algorithmic decision-making and data-centric infrastructures to offer innovative digital services to citizens. The CAAI project conducts research to assess wide ranging and conflicting perspectives and practices among experts, providers and citizens. The European Commission’s proposed Artificial Intelligence Act has raised vigorous deliberations regarding the implications of  implementing this regulatory framework across the EU. The diverse and contested discourses among AI experts, regulators, public actors, and citizen advocates, offer a timely window of opportunity to critically examine their implications, while promoting citizen participation and civic agency in shaping the AI Act and its governance in Finland and the EU. In this project we examine discourses through the theoretical lens of Critical Discourse Analysis to gain insights on diverse values, narratives, and positions, while Natural Language Processing methods are used to contextually examine salient topics.

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral candidates in Quantum Nanomechanics

In another project, the goal is to touch a hundred-year-old mystery of physics: Despite its success at describing phenomena in the low-energy limit, quantum mechanics is incompatible with general relativity that describes gravity and huge energies. The interface between these two has remained experimentally elusive, because only the most violent events in the universe have been considered to produce measurable effects due to the plausible quantum behavior of gravity. We aim at detecting gravitational forces for the first time within a quantum system. We use mechanical oscillators loaded by milligram masses, and bring two such gravitationally interacting oscillators into nonclassical motional states. Initially, we measure the gravitational force between gold particles weighing a milligram, representing a new mass scale showing gravitational forces within a system.

About Aalto University, Finland –Official Website

Aalto University  is a university located in Espoo, Finland. It was established in 2010 as a merger of three major Finnish universities: the Helsinki University of Technology (established 1849), the Helsinki School of Economics (established 1904), and the University of Art and Design Helsinki (established 1871). The close collaboration between the scientific, business and arts communities is intended to foster multi-disciplinary education and research. The Finnish government, in 2010, set out to create a university that fosters innovation, merging the three institutions into one.

The university is composed of six schools with close to 17,500 students and 4,000 staff members, making it Finland’s second largest university. The main campus of Aalto University is located in Otaniemi, Espoo. Aalto University Executive Education operates in the district of Töölö, Helsinki. In addition to the Greater Helsinki area, the university also operates its Bachelor’s Programme in International Business in Mikkeli and the Metsähovi Radio Observatory in Kirkkonummi.

Aalto University’s operations showcase Finland’s experiment in higher education. The Aalto Design Factory, Aalto Ventures Program and Aalto Entrepreneurship Society (Aaltoes), among others, drive the university’s mission for a radical shift towards multidisciplinary learning and have contributed substantially to the emergence of Helsinki as a hotbed for startups.Aaltoes is Europe’s largest and most active student run entrepreneurship community that has founded major concepts such as the Startup Sauna accelerator program and the Slush startup event.

The university is named in honour of Alvar Aalto, a prominent Finnish architect, designer and alumnus of the former Helsinki University of Technology, who was also instrumental in designing a large part of the university’s main campus in Otaniemi.
