PhD student position in fluid mechanics of turbulent clouds

  Climate change is a socio-economic challenge, and climate simulations are the only tool to predict our planet's future climate. Clouds are crucial for weather and climate predictions. According to the IPCC, cloud modelling is one of the least understood domains in climate sciences and is “listed as one of the most urgent problems requiring scientific attention”. Clouds are considered the largest source of uncertainty in climate predictions because it is complicated to accurately model the small-scale process (microphysics) inside clouds occurring in a range from meters to nanometers in a global climate model where the resolution is of the order of Kilometers. This project will address this challenge by using novel multiscale techniques developed for general multiphase flows that allow us to accurately solve the small-scale cloud turbulence and its impact on nucleation, evaporation and collisions of cloud droplets.

Postdoc in mathematics

  The Department of Mathematical Sciences is searching for a postdoctor working on Diophantine approximation and homogeneous dynamics. Information about the project The postdoctoral project is “Quantitative Distributional Asymptotics in Metric Diophantine Approximation” and is funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg foundation. The aim of the project is to apply techniques from geometry of numbers, dynamical systems and representation theory to establish quantitative improvements of certain (almost sure and distributional) limit theorems which involve counting objects with Diophantine constraints. Examples of such limit theorems include, but are not limited to,  the central limit theorems for Diophantine approximants by Björklund and Gorodnik and the small scale distributions of diffraction measures associated with random quasicrystals.

Postdoctoral Researcher in MR Physics

  In our research group, located in the Dept. of Neuroradiology at the Karolinska University Hospital, we develop new pulse sequences and image reconstruction methods for clinical neuro MRI, both for adult and pediatric patients. This is done in close collaboration with the MR staff and neuroradiologists, and most of our developed techniques end up in clinical use. Our group has also developed a simplified pulse programming framework that has been shared to the MR research community and that has allowed for a short translation of ideas to prototypes and clinical production. Your mission The applicant should be able to independently drive clinically relevant projects related to brain and spine MRI synergistically with the research themes of the group. The research and development conducted should lead to technical scientific papers. Current focuses include high-resolution SWI-EPI, novel spine pulse sequences, and ultra-fast MRI, all of which also involve motion correction strategies. Yo
