Postdoc in Active Flow Control for Wind-propelled ships


 Project description

Wind-propelled/assisted ships have emerged as a crucial component to achieve the GHG cuts set out by the IMO, the International Maritime Organisation, for maritime transport. Harnessing wind energy, Wind Propulsion Technology can replace a part of engine power to reduce fuel consumption and emissions; this combined with alternative fuels can lead to the vision of fossil-free shipping. This is a cross-disciplinary challenge involving aero- and hydrodynamics, structures, operations, metocean conditions, and more. This research aims to improve performance and operationability of wind assisted vessels by developing innovative flow control systems to increase the thrust and operation window and reduce structural issues with the sails.

We are offering a position as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the field of active flow control for wingsail performance and operation utilising artifical intelligence/machine learning. The objective is to design innovative techniques to control the flow over the wingsails and hull and superstructure of ships in order to maximise the aerodynamic performance and reduce vibrations occuring especially in unsteady metocean conditions.

To achieve this objective, the flow around sails close to and beyond stall as well as around the hull will be studied and characterised using CFD  as well as experiments. Flow control algorithms, using both passive and active systems, should be developed that are effective in a range of flow conditions for the vessel; here, machine learning/AI will be used in the design of the control system. The research group has well established cooperation with other researchers in the area of wind-assisted propulsion and flow control that will be brought into the research.

Information about the division and the department
The Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences (M2) conducts fundamental and applied research in all modes of transport to achieve sustainable technological solutions. It offers and contributes to bachelor and master programs in areas such as Shipping, Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering, Automotive and Mechanical Engineering, to mention a few. The department continuously strives to establish and develop collaboration between academia, industry, and society, for improved knowledge transfer in both directions. M2 is characterized by an international environment with employees and students from around the world, as well as outstanding research and world class education. M2 consists of seven divisions within the areas of engineering and maritime sciences, and one division of administration and support.

Major responsibilities
Your major responsibility as postdoc is to perform your own research in the research group. You are expected to develop your own scientific ideas and concepts, and to communicate the results of your research verbally and in writing. You will be guided by senior researchers at the involved departments and companies. The position may also include teaching on undergraduate and master's levels as well as supervising master's and/or PhD students to a certain extent. The position is meritorious for future research duties within academia as well as industry/the public sector.

Postdoc in Quantum Information Science with Superconducting Circuits


Postdoc position in Quantum Information Science with Superconducting Circuits

We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to join our ongoing research efforts in experimental quantum information science using superconducting circuits. The expected start date for this position is September 1, 2023. We will start reviewing applications on June 25 and continue until the position is filled.

About the division
At the Quantum Technology division of the Microtechnology and Nanoscience (MC-2) department, we pursue state-of-the art research in quantum information science, microwave quantum optics, and mechanical quantum devices. We are also part of the Wallenberg Centre for Quantum Technology (WACQT), a 12-year initiative to advance Swedish academia and industry to the forefront of quantum technology, and to build a Swedish quantum computer. In our research group, the 202Q-lab, we use superconducting circuits to explore fundamental and applied questions in the areas of quantum information processing, microwave quantum optics and communication, and quantum thermodynamics. Our research is funded by WACQT, the Swedish Research Council, the European Research Council (ERC), and the European Innovation Council (EIC).

Project description
The successful candidate will join our experimental team in advancing our capabilities on quantum information processing of superconducting bosonic modes, also called continuous-variables systems. Compared to two-level superconducting qubits, the bosonic architectures may bring advantages such as longer coherence times, resource-efficient quantum error correction, and well-understood loss channels. Our group recently demonstrated the preparation, manipulation, and tomography of a logical qubit encoded in a highly coherent bosonic mode. Now we plan to exploit the high dimensionality of the bosonic mode Hilbert space to both investigate quantum error correction protocols as well as scaling up to multiple cavities to demonstrate a verifiable quantum speed up advantage. Although our group's initiative is focused on bosonic modes, the designs, workflows, fabrication processes, measurement procedures are closely related to that of traditional qubits. Hence, we work in close collaboration with the core effort within the WACQT center to build a large-scale quantum computer.

Job description/Responsibilities
You will perform experimental research, both individually and as part of our team, in the field of bosonic quantum information processing with superconducting circuits. Depending on your background and interests, you may contribute to aspects such as the following:

· conceive and design novel quantum devices;

· execute microwave measurements with nearly quantum-limited noise performance;

· work on customized solutions to control bosonic modes;

· work on scalability aspects of bosonic platforms;

· perform material studies and develop nanofabrication processes to advance the state of the art in qubit lifetime and coherence;

· fabricate superconducting device for your own project as well as for other teams in our group;

· contribute with your fabrication expertise as a senior member of our fabrication team.

In doing so, you will take advantage of the extensive infrastructure and expertise available in our team and division. Your research will benefit from regular interactions with our theory collaborators based in neighboring divisions as well as in other institutions in Sweden and abroad. As a postdoc we expect you to contribute to the informal supervision of younger graduate students.

Qualifications
You hold a PhD degree in Physics, Engineering Physics, or Applied Physics, or you plan to defend your PhD thesis before Sep 1, 2023. You have a strong interest in at least two of the following: experimental realizations of quantum processors, quantum information science, quantum optics, superconducting devices, microwave engineering, nanofabrication. You see yourself as pursuing a career in research & development or education, either in academia, or in industry. You are driven by scientific curiosity and by a desire to make a difference. You can confidently read, write, and discuss science in English. We will consider outstanding candidates with a proven track record in any field of physics, engineering physics, nanotechnology. Previous experience in nanofabrication, especially of superconducting circuits or mesoscopic electronic devices, will be regarded as an asset. Acquaintance with experimental condensed-matter physics, atomic, molecular, and optical (AMO) physics, microwave measurements, and quantum optics is also appreciated.

Contract terms
This postdoc position is a full-time temporary employment for three years.

Postdoctoral fellow in communications and coding for channels with memory

Our modern society depends entirely on global networks for high-capacity data communications, in which almost all data is carried by optical fibers. The physical layer algorithms in such communication systems are traditionally optimized for transmitting bit streams and are not optimal for modern packet-oriented applications. The aim of this project is to bridge this gap by designing innovative coding and decoding algorithms, inspired by a similar paradigm shift in wireless communications. The project is led by Professor Erik Agrell (IEEE Fellow) and funding is provided by a prestigious grant from the Swedish Research Council.

Information about the project and the division
Fiber-optic channels usually have a long memory due to the physical properties of lightwave propagation in combination with signal processing algorithms in transmitters and receivers. The traditional approach to such channels is to make them virtually memoryless by interleaving, and then apply classical physical-layer techniques optimized for memoryless channels. In this project, we will instead omit the interleaver and design channel-aware physical layer algorithms. Specifically, innovative coding, decoding, and channel estimation techniques are expected. The performance will be evaluated in terms of packet error rate theoretically and in simulations (no experiments), when applied to simplified optical channel models with memory.

At the Department of Electrical Engineering, we conduct internationally renowned research spanning many fields and including information and communication theory, machine learning, and signal processing. We offer a dynamic, supportive, international research environment with about 150 employees from more than 20 countries and an extensive national and international collaboration network that encompasses both other academic partners and industry. Our working language is English.

You will belong to a strong team of researchers in optical communications, organized in the research center FORCE. This center brings together researchers in communications, photonics, and electronics to solve hard problems in optical communications through a cross-disciplinary approach. The collaboration bridges traditional discipline boundaries and includes the whole chain from components to networks, from analysis to experiments.

Major responsibilities
Your main responsibility as postdoctoral researcher is to perform research and to present your results in major journals and conferences. You will have the freedom to independently formulate and solve research problems, within the general scope of the project. A limited amount of teaching and supervision may also be included in the position, depending on your preferences. Another important aspect involves collaboration within academia and with society at large. The position is meritorious for future research roles within academia as well as industry/the public sector.

Qualifications
Mandatory
  • Ph.D. degree (or close to completion) in digital communication systems, with focus on physical-layer algorithms
  • The Ph.D. degree should normally not be older than three years, excluding periods of parental leave, sick leave, and similar circumstances
  • Courses and experience in error-correcting coding
  • High grades in relevant Master’s and Ph.D. courses
  • Knowledge of optical or wireless communication systems (not necessarily both)
  • Experience in mathematical analysis and numerical optimization
  • Experience in implementing and simulating communication systems
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills in English
  • Publications as first author in IEEE and/or OSA journals
  • An open, creative, and collaborative mind

Desirable

  • Courses and experience in coded modulation, shaping, information theory, and estimation and detection theory
  • Courses and experience in signal processing, fiber-optic communications, networks and protocols, and stochastic processes
  • Experience in cross-layer system design
  • Experience in channel modeling
  • Experience of channels with memory, for example bursty channels
  • Other publications
  • Interdisciplinary collaboration
  • Research visits, conference participation, and other international experience

Swedish language skills are not required for this position.

Contract terms

Postdoc in AI-driven optimization of variational algorithms for near-term quantum computers


Project description

Variational quantum algorithms (VQAs) seek to make the most of noisy intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) devices currently operating at academic and industrial labs around the world. VQAs are hybrid algorithms where NISQ devices are controlled via optimization algorithms implemented on classical computers. VQA algorithms have promising near-term applications including in quantum chemistry and optimization.

The application of VQAs to quantum chemical problems is currently limited by both software and hardware – in this project the selected candidate will address two key limitations on the software side:
- Warm-start for VQAs using the underlying structure of molecules and their Hamiltonians – to minimize the number of quantum-classical computer cycles needed for convergence.
- Learning functions to map molecules to bespoke hardware-efficient circuit Ansätze – to lower the demand on the number of qubits necessary to accurately compute ground state energies.

The selected candidate will be embedded into an interdisciplinary environment between the Chalmers departments of Computer Science and Engineering as well as Chemistry and Chemical engineering, and the Wallenberg Centre for Quantum Technology (WACQT).

Postdoc position in optical spectroscopy


We are recruiting highly motivated postdocs to be part of an EU-financed project targeting photochromic probes for fluorescence microscopy. The node at Chalmers will be responsible for the design and the spectroscopic characterization of the target compounds, using absorption and fluorescence techniques.

Information about the research and the project
The secret life of molecules is the main theme of our research and teaching at the Division of Chemistry and Biochemistry. We are studying how small and large molecules can be produced, their interaction with one another in material or in living cells, and how they can capture and convert energy. The projects are chosen to fulfill the requirements of the highest scientific standard, and the know-how they create on a molecular level is generally of importance for solving many advanced problems as well as for future practical applications. The span of potential applications is extremely wide: from life sciences to materials sciences.

Andréasson research group is focusing on the synthesis and spectroscopic characterization of molecular photoswitches (photochromic molecules). Today, the main focus is on how to gain photonic control of energy transfer (FRET) reactions in these systems, which in turn will change the fluorescence properties. We use this scheme for many different applications, and the successful candidate will partake in an EU-financed consortium project aiming at boosting the performance of probes for fluorescence microscopy by cleverly designed photochromic constructs.

Now we invite applications for a Postdoc position (2-3 year position) in the field of optical spectroscopy. In this multidisciplinary project, fluorescent molecular photoswitches will be designed, synthesized, and characterized using spectroscopic and microscopy techniques. The daily work will be performed at Chalmers University of Technology, in close collaboration with University of Gothenburg (Sweden), University of Huelva (Spain), and KU Leuven (Belgium).

Major responsibilities
Your major responsibility as postdoc is to perform your own research in a research group. In this position, you will focus on the design and the spectroscopic characterization of the target compounds. Absorption and fluorescence spectroscopy, in both the steady-state and the time-resolved regimes, will be the main techniques.

Qualifications
The applicant for this Postdoc position should have a PhD degree in physical chemistry, biochemistry, biophysical chemistry, or an equivalent education, awarded no more than three years prior to the application deadline (according to the current agreement with the Swedish Agency for Government Employers).
The position requires sound verbal and written communication skills in English. Swedish is not a requirement but Chalmers offers Swedish courses.

Skills in absorption and fluorescence spectroscopy (steady-state and time-resolved techniques such as TR-SPC and ns transient absorption) are mandatory.

Meritorious qualifications:
Experience in working with photochromic compounds (molecular photoswitches).
Experience in studying energy transfer (FRET) reactions.
Previous Postdoc experience.
