To be a doctoral student means to devote oneself to a research project under supervision of experienced researchers and following an individual study plan. For a doctoral degree, the equivalent of four years of full-time doc

PhD student in deep learning for edge devices

  Mälardalen University is growing and evolving due to increased research funding from the Swedish Government. Join our team on this exciting journey towards MDU`s vision, to be a progressive and collaborative University where together we shape a sustainable future. You can make a difference. Together, we can create a sustainable future through knowledge and innovation. We believe that knowledge and new perspectives are best attained and reached together in collaboration with others – our colleagues, students, the private and public sectors, both nationally and internationally. Around 20 000 students are currently studying courses and programmes with us in the various domains. We offer education in areas such as design and communication, economics, health, engineering and technology, preschool and compulsory school teacher training as well as in chamber music and opera. In most of our areas we also offer programmes entirely taught in English. We conduct research in all disciplinary

PhD-student position 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 Phd-student position in our lab. Information about the division and the department The project is part of a larger collaboration with the chemical industry in western Sweden and addresses their need for deeper knowledge on the thermochemical conversion of plastic waste. Particularly, the heterogeneity of real waste streams and the technological consequences are in the focus.  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

PhD student position in Modelling of vehicle motion during operations where tyre models cause singularities

  The fields of research will be in mechanics and mathematics with the aim to model, simulate and control friction phenomena in vehicles with respect to tyre, brake and propulsion systems when the vehicle speed is low or zero. This also includes driving with wheel rotational speed close to zero. The aims of the project are: (i) setup a flexible minimal model for analysis (analytic and numeric) of jerk singularities; (ii) setup and analyse a full-scale vehicle model that display the expected behaviours and compare them with predictions from the minimal model; (iii) develop requirements on both numerical simulations and measurements to capture the jerk phenomena; (iv) develop algorithms to detect ensuing jerk during driving; (v) develop control methods utilizing the developed models to minimize the jerk disturbance. Information about the division and the department The PhD student will be employed at the Department of  Mechanics and Maritime Sciences  (M2). The main supervisor is located

PhD student position in Operations Management: strategies for sustainable operations

  The division of Supply and Operations Management is looking for a PhD candidate with interest in strategies for sustainable operations. Project description In this project you will be investigating strategies for sustainable operations in the wood manufacturing industries, with focus on remanufacturing. Remanufacturing is the process of industrial refurbishment of products. The research has a starting point in the relevant practical as well academic problem of combining remanufacturing and manufacturing of new products in an effective and sustainable way. We want to achieve environmental sustainability by increasing the raw material usage and by better utilization of manufacturing resources. This should be achieved in a cost-effective way to reach economic sustainability. For creating a socially sustainable work environment we need to build suitable competences and ergonomical workplaces. The aim is to explore strategies where the new manufacturing and remanufacturing are coordinated
