Thus the post doc will thus have an opportunity to interact within the dynamic and highly international research environments at University of Helsinki.

The starting date is 1.11.2021, but a later starting date can be negotiated.

The overreaching aim of the project is to understand the role of anticipatory plastic responses to environmental stress, both within and across generations, using the Glanville fritillary butterfly as a study organism. The project builds on an on-going work (in collaboration with Dr Vicencio Oostra at University of Liverpool, UK) indicating that both individual’s own developmental conditions and those experienced by its mother shape its phenotype. Furthermore, epigenetic and transcriptomic analyses suggest that within- and transgenerational responses are mediated by distinct pathways.

We are now seeking a post doc to continue this project in order to understand the potential adaptive and anticipatory nature of stress responses and/or the impact of paternal condition in the trans-generational stress responses. The successful candidate will participate in planning and conducting experiment(s), analyse the phenotypic (and genomic transcriptomic and/or ATAC-sequencing) data, and lead the writing of the resulting manuscript(s). There is also potential for analysing part of the existing data prior obtaining own results. The successful candidate is expected to have a strong background in evolutionary ecology and experimental approaches. If interested in combining phenotypic experiments with genomic analyses, then demonstrable experience in bioinformatic analyses of genomic data are also expected.

The successful applicant should have completed a PhD in evolutionary ecology or a related field, and have strong statistical (and bioinformatics) skills. We seek candidates with excellent written and verbal communication skills, and the ability to conceive, execute and complete research projects, and to think independently and creatively. The post doc will work as a part of a team and thus good social skills are also required.

For more information, contact assoc. prof. Marjo Saastamoinen by email: marjo.saastamoinen@helsinki.fi

The salary of the successful candidate will be based on level 5 of the demands level chart for teaching and research personnel in the salary system of Finnish universities.

PhD scholarship in Large-Scale Structural Optimization for Hearing Systems

DTU, the Department of Mechanical Engineering and the Center for Acoustic-Mechanical Microsystems (CAMM) invite highly motivated and talented graduates to apply for a 3-year PhD where you will explore novel ways to apply large-scale structural optimization methods to explore the performance improvements in hearing aids considering the full multiphysics setting. CAMM facilitates and connects research in acoustic-mechanical interaction, numerical methods and optimization, materials microfabrication, and acoustic measurement techniques. In collaboration with three world-leading Danish companies in hearing aids and electroacoustic devices, we combine strong expertise from DTU Electrical Engineering and DTU Mechanical Engineering.

Shape and topology optimization can be powerful tools to improve the performance of acoustic-mechanical systems by reshaping the geometry to achieve specific physical objectives. This project focuses on the vibroacoustic understanding of a whole hearing aid system to define suitable objective functions instead of only looking at individual parts. A main approach is investigating feedback loops between design of objective functions and constraints to match physical goals. The project will answer the question how to define objective/constraints functions for broadband responses in the audible spectrum. We will investigate reduced order models for broadband frequencies, and also look at transient formulations. Specific attention will be paid to the suspension systems and the beading on the interior of hearing aid shells. Additionally, the simultaneous design/study/modelling of non-homogeneous, anisotropic materials and their use in stability (feedback) will be investigated.

Responsibilities and qualifications
In this project you will build on knowledge obtained through previous projects and codes and you will be responsible for the development of:

  • Large-scale modelling and advanced finite element methods for vibroacoustics problems in 3D, including lumped models, reduced order models and efficient solvers.
  • Numerical model validation through experiments (or by use of experimental data)
  • New shape and topology optimization formulations targeting the performance of full hearing systems
  • Investigate the design space for the full hearing system and determine performance bounds based on extensive numerical investigations.

Prior experience within one or more of these disciplines is considered beneficial to your application. For these tasks you will take responsibility for project planning, data management, computational experiments and comprehensive documentation. You are also expected to be able to work in a highly collaborative environment inside CAMM and in close contact with our company partners. Close exchange between DTU Electrical Engineering and DTU Mechanical Engineering is expected. Fluent written and spoken English is essential.

Your PhD project will result in scientific publications of your results. You will present at international conferences as part of your research training and you can also sharpen your didactics skills through experience as teaching assistant.

As a PhD student in CAMM and the Department of Mechanical Engineering, you will benefit from our strong expertise in mechanics, vibrations, finite element methods, large scale numerical modelling, optimization, acoustics and microfabrication technologies. This will allow you to:

  • Be a part of a creative and stimulating scientific environment
  • Develop your theoretical and experimental skills
  • Collaborate with experts in topics related to your project

You must have a two-year master's degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master's degree in engineering, physics, material science, or related fields. Only candidates with documented experience in at least one and preferably multiple of the following areas will be considered: structural optimization, high performance computing, programming, vibroacoustics, vibrations and numerical methods. Familiarity with programming languages such as C/C++, MPI, OpenCL and/or CUDA will be considered an advantage.

Approval and Enrolment
