The solutions will be concretised into a prototype framework.

The postdoc researcher will focus on identify theories, methods and tools for blended and collaborative modelling, in terms of editing, visualization and synchronisation, of SPLs, and theories, methods and tools for continuous model-based development and analysis of product families. The position also involves teaching.

 The postdoc will work with the project team in MoDev, but is expected to manage her/his duties independently.

The post-doctoral researcher will focus on the interactional aspects of classroom participation and engagement, and explore- from micro-analytic, multimodal, and reflective perspectives- the ways digital tools encourage transformative reflections.

The researcher is expected to be involved in collection and analysis of audio-visual data from classroom settings, while also attending and taking active part in organizing regular activities of the research group, including data sessions, research seminars, and workshops.

The researcher will be expected to (1) transcribe and analyse pedagogical interaction data using (multimodal) conversation analysis, (2) annotate audio-visual data from reflection sessions, and (3) carry out thematic/content analysis of stimulated recall data and interviews. The post-doctoral researcher will be expected to work with the research group members in reporting research findings in international peer-reviewed publications and collaborate with the members of the group in disseminating research findings (e.g. presenting in and organizing research conferences/symposia as well as events for teachers).

The position is a temporary employment of 2-3 years.

Qualifications requirements

The applicant is required to have a PhD degree in educational sciences, applied language studies (e.g., applied linguistics, educational linguistics, (second) language education, TESOL) or related fields, with a focus on interactional aspects of learning and teaching, or discursive practices in institutional interaction in its broad sense. The applicant is also expected to be very proficient in English language, both in speech and writing. The applicant must have completed the degree no more than three years before the end of the application period.

The candidate should be able to demonstrate skills and expertise in using discursive methodologies, preferably (multimodal) conversation analysis, for analyzing interactions where learning is mediated, including, but not limited to, classrooms. The researcher should have in-depth knowledge and experience in the analysis of discursive data, demonstrated through published work and other academic activities. Experience in publishing research in international journals will be important in the decision. Personal qualities required include willingness to collaborate and (demonstrated) skills in collaboration; good communication skills; and the ability to take research initiatives and work independently.   

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 organisation.

Merit

In addition to the requirements listed above, the candidates who have knowledge and skills in analyzing classroom interaction may have an additional advantage. Furthermore, experience in the use of other discursive methodologies and analysis software are meriterous. Having taken part in data sessions, experience and skills in dealing with corpora, as well as video annotation tools may be advantageous.

Position description

The VINNOVA-funded project “AORTA: Advanced Offloading for Real-Time Applications” is announcing a PhD position in real-time cloud computing. The goal of AORTA is to develop a framework that allows offloading of real-time services and functionality to the edge and cloud, as well as integration of them with services in the edge/cloud computing nodes. The ambition is to support, for example, advanced robotics or manufacturing systems in utilizing non-local services in a predictable fashion. We will build upon recent advances in predictable communication and compute technologies, such as Kubernetes and 5G. A new real-time computing platform consisting of a portable real-time virtual machine or real-time containers that supports dynamic code migration for offloading. The project is a strong collaboration among Mälardalen University, Lund University, Ericsson, and Cognibotics.

In this context, the PhD student will focus on developing a new technique to allow holistic modelling of real-time applications that utilize edge-cloud computing continuum. The model should be expressive enough to model the application’s recourse information such as end-to-end timing, network bandwidth, memory, and computing resources. In addition, the PhD student will develop a framework that will continuously monitor the application’s resource requirements and based on the dynamic updates in the resource requirements, the application can be dynamically offloaded to the most suitable computer platform. The communication resources should be taken into account for the offloading decisions. The defined tasks will be done in close collaborations with Ericsson.

Qualifications

Only those who are or have been admitted to third-cycle courses and study programmes at a higher education may be appointed to doctoral studentships. For futher information see Chapter 5 of the Higher Education Ordinance (SFS 1993:100).
