PhD student position in Robotic Inspection Systems


The research group of Applied AI at Chalmers conducts basic and applied research on autonomous vehicles and robots. We are expanding our portfolio to include new sectors, such as railway. Through increased utilization, the capacity and productivity of the European railway network is improved, thereby consolidating the railway's role as the backbone for pollution-free transport of goods and people.

We offer you the opportunity to pursue your ideas in an inclusive work environment at one of Sweden's leading universities on the lively west coast city of Gothenburg.

Project description
The PhD project will be carried out in the Applied Artificial Intelligence (AAI) research group, and in collaboration with project partners in the European railway sector. A consequence of increased utilization of the railway systems is increased wear and increased risk of damage to the railway infrastructure. As a result, there's a strong need of maintenance and repair of the railway infrastructure. Digitalization, AI, and robotics have been identified as potential solutions. For example, a novel contribution to more efficient railway maintenance and repair are digital twins. These intelligent simulations can be used to more precisely predict when a preventive maintenance measure should be carried out. Thus, the risk of sudden, unexpected breakdowns, which can be very costly and dangerous, is reduced. Traffic disruptions due to maintenance activities can also be minimized. However, they need to be continuously updated with fresh data. Together with the Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket), the Applied AI (AAI) research group at Chalmers-M2 is developing an autonomous railway robot research prototype for data collection, inspection, and repair of railway infrastructure. In the PhD project, building on our previous research, we aim to further develop the robotics inspection and repair system.

The AAI group conducts research in a wide variety of topics, e.g. automated transportation (road, rail, and sea), mobile robots, and conversational AI, with interpretability as a common theme. In the field of conversational AI, the AAI group is working on several topics, e.g., text sentiment classification, dialogue managers for intelligent virtual agents, and natural language modelling in general, with applications primarily in health care (even though other applications may be relevant as well). The AAI group is part of the division of Vehicle Engineering and Autonomous Systems (VEAS) at the Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences (M2).

Major responsibilities
The main responsibility will be to pursue research within the project. You are expected to implement, extend, and test existing scientific ideas and concepts as well as invent new ones, and to communicate the results of your research verbally and in writing at leading conferences. You will be guided by senior researchers in the department. The position generally also includes teaching on Chalmers' undergraduate/Masters level or performing other duties corresponding to 20 percent of working hours.

Qualifications
To qualify as a PhD student, you must have a master's level degree corresponding to at least 240 higher education credits in a relevant field, such as complex adaptive systems, automation and control, mechatronics, artificial intelligence, or computer science.

You should also:
- have good grades and the ability to work independently.
- be creative and organized and like to put new ideas into practice.
- have the ability to discuss and communicate your work with people of different backgrounds.
- be highly motivated, with a strong curiosity and a genuine wish to constantly learn more and to develop your skills and knowledge further in the fields of research and research communication.

The position requires sound verbal and written communication skills in English. If Swedish is not your native language, Chalmers offers Swedish courses.

The Department of Technology Management and Economics broadly researches the interaction between technology development, industrial systems, society, people and the environment. Our research is linked to several of Chalmers' Areas of Advance. The Postdoc-position is most likely placed at the Division of Environmental Systems Analysis (ESA) which conducts research in the field of innovation and sustainability studies and assessment of environmental impact of technologies. We develop and explore theories and practices for understanding and transforming socio-technical-ecological systems to better meet environmental and resource constraints. Our research requires cross- and transdisciplinary efforts combining social science with various approaches for environmental assessment. The division has around 35 staff members with diverse expertise, including engineering, natural and social scientists. If the selected candidate would fit much better in the Material and Computational Mechanics group, the position might be placed there; either way, there will be strong collaboration between the groups.

Information about the project
The specific project you will work in aims to use cutting-edge knowledge from materials developers and put this in the systems context of environmental LCA in order to provide guidance on environmental challenges and opportunities. This position therefore offers the opportunity to further develop skills as a researcher in a rapidly developing field, potentially with major implications for society, in particular with regard to the transportation system. You should be interested in further developing LCA methods and practice as well as to contribute to materials and policy development around the new concept of energy storage in structural elements in a vehicle.

Major responsibilities
You will run this specific project that aims at performing and further developing LCA on the use of SBCs in vehicles. You will be supported by senior researchers from the two fields and collaborate closely with researchers in both groups. On parts of your time you might also contribute to other related projects depending on the funding situation. You will also teach in courses at the ESA division and participate in various division activities as well as seminar series or discussions in both involved groups.

Qualifications
You have a PhD in a relevant field which builds on a master degree in engineering or similar. You have a lot of experience of performing LCA and preferably in the context of vehicles, batteries or composites and for early stage technologies or in new materials development.
