Postdoc in audio-visual information retrieval for artistic processes

 In close cooperation with the Royal College of Music in Stockholm and with Spotify, Ericsson, and teenage engineering, we are looking for a postdoctoral fellow for the Information Retrieval in Embedded Systems for Audiovisual Artistic Processes project with funding from the Knowledge Development Foundation.

The project explores interaction design as a tool to demonstrate how, even in distributed music performances, you can create a sense of immersion and exchange between participants and audience in merged reality. When space and participation are physically dissolved, other sensory parameters, such as the spatial properties of sound, become even more important. The hypothesis is that immersion requires access to continuously relevant musical information and that this is available to the system and to all participants. Well-designed information retrieval, integrated with creative flows, is essential to the artistic process.

You will explore and develop designs and interactive prototypes that enable artists to use and reuse artistic material from their own previous work and from large databases. This material supports reflection on artistic decisions made in the moment during rehearsal or performance.  The tasks include experiential and participatory design, sketching and implementation of interactive prototypes, which includes media programming, merged reality, artificial intelligence and distributed systems. The whole project is situated between interaction design research and artistic research in music and intermedia.

Although the position is formally at Mälardalen University in Västerås you are expected to be prepared to do research at Royal College of Music in Stockholm.

Qualification requirements

The applicant is required to have a PhD degree in computer science, media technology, electronics or an artistic doctorate with a focus on electroacoustic music and intermedia or equivalent. The applicant must have completed the degree no more than three years before the end of the application period.

You must be able to demonstrate breadth in both knowledge and abilities and demonstrate that you can combine design, technology and artistry. Even if, for example, you have a focus in computer science, you must be able to demonstrate your ability in design and art.  

Decisive importance is attached to personal suitability. We value the qualities that an even distribution of age and gender, as well as ethnic and cultural diversity, can contribute to the organization.

Merit

In addition to academic merits, publishing of phonograms, concerts, installations, portfolio of works, publishing of software, or innovations in electronic musical, or video instruments are meritorious for employment.

Postdoc in thermo-chemical recycling of plastic waste

 Our group at the division of Energy Technology together with our partners in industry work towards laying the foundation of the next generation of chemical recycling for mixed plastic waste. If you're a team player, interested in widening your scope on chemical plastic recycling, enjoying combining theory with pilot scale experiments and are curious about the details to make it work we can offer you a postdoc position in our lab.


Project description
The project is part of a larger collaboration with the chemical industry in western Sweden and addresses their need for deeper knowledge on the thermo-chemical conversion of plastic waste and side streams of petrochemical production. The division of Energy Technology has its own pilot scale facility for pyrolysis and gasification trials and advanced analytics for product characterization which is the backbone of our research. Complementary experimental lab facilities are available to investigate specific aspects isolated.

Your project will in particular deal with investigation the reaction pathways during thermo-chemical conversion of plastic waste and its derivates with a particular interest in the role of alkali in the mixture. The reactions are thermally induced and occur through bond breakage and free radical mechanisms. Ideally, such reactions should be initiated by swift heating and a controlled quenching, hence, we consider allothermal fluid beds and thermal plasma as heat sources in this project.
The position will include tight interaction with scientific and industrial partners both nationally as well as internationally.
