PhD position summary/title: PhD student – diagnostics and modeling of gas-solids flow

Modeling of gas-solids flow is currently limited by: i) insufficient reliability due to inaccurate descriptions of the flow parameters at the micro-scale, and ii) unaffordable computational costs of full-scale simulations. Having this, this project serves the purpose of developing reliable modeling of gas-solids flow by experimentally gaining novel knowledge of the gas-solids flow at the micro-scale and use it to improve the critical modeling expressions for sub-grid momentum transfer with validated descriptions. This is a critical aspect, since micro-scale gas-solids flow phenomena remain largely unknown despite they are recognized to govern the flow picture at the larger scales. To experimentally access the micro-scale, a unique and novel technique based on THz-radar will be employed which recently demonstrated unprecedented levels of resolution, accuracy, and penetration. Regarding the achievement of full-scale simulations at significantly lowered computing cost, the project will investigate application of state-of-the-art strategies in numerical modeling (recurrence computational fluid-dynamics and deep learning) to the field of gas-solids flow, departing from the improved flow formulation at the micro-scale.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Student Position in Generative models for Inverse Molecular Design

Inverse molecular design is the process of generating molecules with bespoke properties. Examples include a drug binding a specific biological target or an enzyme with high thermal stability. As such, inverse molecular design is a holy grail of chemical and biological engineering. However, the space of possible compounds or protein sequences is enormous, which excludes explicit screening or discriminative approaches. Here we seek to build a generative AI system that leverages multi-scalar and multi-modal data to generate compounds conditioned on their target properties. The selected candidate will join an interdisciplinary team in their efforts to target ion-channel proteins to modulate their function to a possible therapeutic effect.

Machine learning provides new exciting new opportunities in the natural sciences such as physics, chemistry, and biology. Its potential application areas span from designing new drugs against multi-resistant pathogens and understanding the impact of gene defects on a protein’s function to speeding up computer simulations to understand fundamental scientific phenomena and design optimal algorithms for near-term quantum computers. The path toward these applications can leverage the power of deep learning to represent and process high-dimensional data effectively and encode natural laws and symmetries.

PhD position summary/title: Ph.D. student position in privacy-preserving federated learning

Traditional machine learning methods rely on centralizing data in the cloud, often raising concerns about compromising user privacy and security. In response to these critical challenges, federated learning has emerged as a groundbreaking paradigm shift. Instead of centralizing raw data, federated learning prioritizes sharing knowledge (represented by trained models or gradients) while preserving the integrity of sensitive information. However, the shared models/gradients are susceptible to information extraction attacks that jeopardize the privacy of the users. Further, federated learning is also vulnerable to poisoning attacks where clients may deviate from consensus by steering the global model toward their own objectives.

PhD position summary/title: PhD student – Multi-physics modeling of structural cathode interphases

Your project will be part of the activities on Structural battery composites at Chalmers. Chalmers has pioneered this research for more than one decade. The research is performed in an interdisciplinary team across Chalmers and at our partner universities KTH the Royal Institute of Technology and Imperial College London. Currently, the teams at the three universities comprise approximately 40 people. The project is funded by The Swedish Research Council (VR).The PhD position is for five years, with research training spanning over four years, and an additional year involves teaching.

Batteries in electric vehicles constitute a large part of their weight, without providing any load-bearing functionality. A structural battery, on the other hand, is one that works as both a power source and as construction material in for example the car body, aircraft interior, etc. This is coined as “massless” energy storage, because in essence the battery’s weight vanishes when it becomes part of the load-bearing structure.

For structural batteries to be useful they must perform their electrical energy storage and supply functions under severe mechanical loads, and vice versa their mechanical integrity must be maintained for all states of charge. Here, we set out to develop fully coupled electro-chemo-thermomechanical models for analysis and design of structural battery composites, as well as electrochemical-mechanical tests for model validation and data generation. The main purpose of the project is to advance the predictive capabilities related to coated electrode material in such structural batteries. Thereby, we aim to establish a reliable tool for guiding the development of all-fiber structural batteries. More specifically, the following project aims will be targeted: (i) Development of an accurate and efficient numerical framework for computational upscaling of thin electro-chemo-mechanical interphases; and (ii) Establishment of a full cell electro-chemo-mechanical model of the proposed all-fiber structural battery.

PhD position summary/title: PhD position in polaron engineering for solar devices

We are looking for a PhD student to work on electronic structure modeling of polarons in materials for solar devices. The undeniable heart of a solar device is a specifically selected and engineered semiconductor. It serves as a photoabsorber, and converts solar photons to free electrons. Whenever we find a new material for this purpose, which improves on stability, sustainability, or efficiency, it often heralds a technological shift. In the field of solar cells the last such transition was brought on by halide perovskites, which are heavily researched for a number of applications. In the field of photoelectrochemical solar-to-fuel conversion, for instance through water splitting, complex metal oxides are the most promising. But to harness the full potential of emerging materials, we need to comprehend how they function, exactly.

Among the many quantum mechanical processes that occur between capturing solar photons and electricity in the grid, charge-lattice interactions emerge as possibly the most enigmatic, yet exceptionally influential. In polarizable solids, excess charges brought upon by photon absorption can localize in potential wells, self-generated by displacing the surrounding ions, creating quasi-particles referred to as polarons. The present project will focus on comprehensive modeling of the effect of polarons in materials for solar application. Advanced electronic structure methods like hybrid functionals and ab-initio molecular dynamics simulations will be used.

PhD position summary/title: PhD student position in modeling a superconducting quantum computer

Circuit quantum electrodynamics presents promising paths to building a quantum computer using superconducting circuits. The quantum dynamics of these circuits need to be modeled on a Hamiltonian level. The control of the circuits needs to be optimized.  You will develop these models and optimization techniques in the context of quantum information processing using continuous variables. Although the project is theoretical, it takes place in close collaboration with the ongoing experimental efforts. It requires both analytical and numerical work.

About Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden   –Official Website

Chalmers University of Technology  is a Swedish university located in Gothenburg that focuses on research and education in technology, natural sciences, architecture, mathematics, maritime and other management areas.
The university was founded in 1829 following a donation by William Chalmers, a director of the Swedish East India Company. He donated part of his fortune for the establishment of an “industrial school”. Chalmers was run as a private institution until 1937, when the institute became a state-owned university. In 1994, the school was incorporated as an aktiebolag under the control of the Swedish Government, the faculty and the Student Union. Chalmers is one of only three universities in Sweden which are named after a person, the other two being Karolinska Institutet and Linnaeus University.
