Postdoc­toral Re­searcher on re­gister-based crim­in­o­lo­gical research

  The Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Helsinki, invites applications for the position of POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHER for a two-year, full-time, fixed-term period starting 13 September 2021 (or as agreed). The appointee will work at the Institute of Criminology and Legal Policy (KRIMO) in the research group of associate professor Antti Latvala. Latvala’s research utilizes nationwide register data from Finland and Sweden and family-based, genetically informed research designs, as well as other quasi-experimental methods to study criminality, mental health, and related factors. The appointee will contribute to a beginning project examining effects of parental incarceration on offspring mental health, criminality and developmental outcomes, or other criminality-related research projects. The appointee is expected to publish the results in top-level international peer reviewed scientific journals. The projects may include collaboration with researchers at Karolinska Institutet in S

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 sy
