Research assistant to nanoplastics-research project (Master thesis project)

Image
  The Biodiversity Unit is looking for a research assistant to develop methods to find nanosized plastic trash from water samples. University of Turku already has a strong tradition in measuring the amounts and type of microplastic from our waters. Now we are expanding our skills to go even smaller: from microplastics down to nanoplastics. You can watch a video from our research here (in Finnish only)  https://areena.yle.fi/1-50996026 . The selected person will work in a project where we test different methods to extract nanoplastics from water samples, and then identify and quantify them. The identification and quantification are done using Raman and/or electron microscope. The final tasks will be matched with the applicant’s skills and preferences. Research assistant´s tasks are required to be connected to a master's thesis work. We are looking for a person who would be interested in the topic and who would have passed suitable studies that give enough background for the task

PhD positions in physics-driven machine learning and quantum computing

Image
  We are looking for highly motivated candidates who are excited about physics-driven machine learning or quantum computing, and who can contribute to developing various kinds of AI-assisted frameworks and tools. Potential projects include: Physics-driven machine learning which combines physical models (e.g. differential equations) with neural network and Gaussian process models. Applications include meteorological forecasting, industrial processes, and various AI systems. Development of fast distributed and parallel computing methods for machine learning, state-estimation, and control. Applications include tracking systems, model predictive control, and health technology. Development of quantum machine learning algorithms (e.g. quantum Gaussian processes) in collaboration with VTT’s quantum computing experts who are developing quantum computer hardware.   Research group The position is available in the growing Sensor Informatics and Medical Technology ( Sensori-informatiikka ja lää

Master’s Thesis Position: Development of control system software for a very low field MRI system

Image
  Department of Electrical Engineering and Automation, Electromagnetics in health technologies group, is looking for a Master thesis worker in the topic described below.  Description Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is one of the best ways of examining body tissue and obtaining information about injuries and illnesses. However, MRI scanners are typically large, heavy, and very expensive devices. In the accessible MRI (AMRI) project of Aalto University, a new type of MRI technology is developed, which enables lighter, cheaper, and more mobile solutions for future imaging applications.    The first prototype device of the AMRI project is currently being built and testing of its subsystems has commenced. The prototype is a low-field MRI device which is based on permanent magnets. To acquire magnetic resonance images, particular settings of pulse sequences are used. These sequences include radio frequency pulses to excite nuclear spins and gradient field pulses for spatial information e
