Postdoc in Software Engineering - Human-AI Interaction

Doktorand
Läs mer Jun 25
As a PostDoc researcher in the Division of Interaction Design and Software Engineering you will be part of a team of researcher with a focus on Software Engineering, AI Engineering and Human Computer Interaction. The candidate will benefit from our many ongoing collaborations with academia and industry and the opportunities for further professional development.

Project Description
A key aspect of human-AI interaction, which is neglected when designing AI systems, is the human decision-makers. In essence, the human’s perception of the communication received from the AI is core to this interaction. AI systems that are developed to bridge the gap between AI and humans, where humans are the consumers of AI system predictions, are intended to improve the quality of decisions. However, humans often make less than optional decisions since they are distorted by their cognitive biases, thus AI systems can reinforce biases or improve the way humans think about a situation. Thus, we argue that it is natural to use the dual-process theory as a lens to understand human cognition when designing AI systems that are intended to augment human intelligence.

In this project we seek to augment human intelligence by not only develop effective explanation techniques, but also by identifying ways to increase humans cognitive motivation for engaging analytically with the explanations from an AI system when designing AI systems that are intended to augment human intelligence.

Post-doc position on modelling of impaired micromobility riding

Forskarassistent
Läs mer Maj 27
Approximately one in four of all e-scooterists seeking medical care after a crash is intoxicated. Further, In Sweden, 20% of the cyclists who die in traffic have alcohol above the permitted level. We have the technology to prevent these crashes with intelligent applications. However, for this technology to deliver the expected benefits we need to understand the behaviour of intoxicated riders and teach machines how to recognize it. Would you like to help us out saving cyclist and e-scooterist lives?

Information about the division and the department
In the Vehicle Safety Division at the Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences we apply human factors and engineering to better understand the safety problem, find solutions, and assess the impact of both problems and solutions on safety. Specifically, within the research area of road user modelling, we develop computational model that may support intelligent applications and automated driving. Within the micromobility group, the research activities range from computational modeling of rider and driver behavior to how to integrate such models into intelligent and communication systems. This post-doc position will focus on modelling of cyclists and e-scooterist behaviour to support active safety applications.

Our mission is to understand why crashes happen and how they can be prevented, with a special focus on technological solutions. Our research is at the border between human factors and engineering and leverages a large network of transport stakeholders, including road authorities (e.g., Trafikverket), industry (e.g., Bosch), insurance agencies (e.g., Folksam), and municipalities (e.g., Göteborg Stad).

Major responsibilities
You will be devoted to micromobility research and specifically to running experiments, performing data analysis, and writing up results about intoxicated riding. We foresee large experiments with a motion analysis system, where intoxicated (and not intoxicated) participants will ride bicycles and e-scooters and perform different avoidance maneuvers. These experiments will be the basis to gather data for modeling road user behaviour and devise predictive models that may help machines understand human behaviour and prevent intoxicated riders to cause harm to themselves or other road users. Supervision and co-supervision of master and PhD students will also be part of your responsibilities. A small amount of teaching is also envisioned. Presenting research results in oral and written form is fundamental for this position to make sure results from the experiments are properly disseminated. Finally, you will also support writing new research grants on micromobility and intoxicated riding for different national and international sponsors.

Qualifications
To qualify for this position you:


• must hold a doctoral degree in engineering by the time the position starts, and awarded no more than three years prior to the application deadline, Exceptions from the 3-year limit can be made for longer periods resulting from parental leave, sick leave or military service*.
• must have excellent knowledge of the English language (both oral and written).
• must have extensive experience in programming (e.g., Python) and modeling human behaviour.
• must have experience in planning and running controlled experiments, including participants recruitment, preparation of applications for ethical approval, and data collection in a laboratory set-up.

Project work and work experience in the following domains is meritorious: a) computational rider modeling, b) work with time-series behavior data, c) micromobility safety.

As the work will be conducted in a highly multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary environment, cultural awareness and good collaboration and communication skills are fundamental. It is equally important that you are quality-conscious and a problem solver. As a post-doctoral fellow you also have to be responsible, creative, and curious.

* The date shown in your doctoral degree certificate is the date we use, as this is the date you have met all requirements for the doctoral degree.

PhD student position in Materials Physics
We are searching a highly motivated PhD student, with a strong background in physics, who will be investigating fundamental key properties of novel energy related materials, using advanced neutron scattering techniques at international large-scale neutron sources

Project description
Lighting stands for 16.5% of the world’s electricity consumption. Novel and energy efficient lighting is therefore needed to reduce the impact on the environment originating from this enormous energy consumption. Phosphor-converted LEDs have become mainstream for many lighting applications, but commercially used LED phosphors contain rare-earth ions that belong to the EU critical raw materials, therefore, new lighting solutions are urgently needed. This PhD project focuses on the investigation of a novel class of phosphors, called hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites, which are free from rare-earch ions, with the overall aim to unravel relationships between local structure, dynamics, and optical properties in these materials. The project will involve the use of advanced neutron spectroscopy techniques at, e.g., the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source in U.K., Institut Laue-Langevin in France, Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex, and the future operating European Spallation Source in Sweden. Furthermore, the PhD student will perform first-principles calculations to investigate the structural, electronic, and dynamical properties of the materials, to compare with the experiments.

Information about the division and the department
The project will be conducted within the research group of Prof. Maths Karlsson at the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. The group focuses on characterization of structure and dynamics in “functional” materials, with a view towards their implementation in energy-relevant technologies, such as LEDs, solar cells, batteries and fuel cells. The primary tools to this end involve the use and development of techniques at large-scale neutron and photon sources, vibrational spectroscopy, optical techniques, and computer modelling. Most of the work is carried out in close collaboration with other leading research groups, in Sweden and in many other countries. Of specific relevance here, this PhD student project is partly funded and connected to the ISIS PhD Studentship Program at the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in the U.K.

Major responsibilities
Your major responsibility will be to carry out the PhD project, as described briefly above. You are expected to develop your own scientific concepts and communicate the results of your research in a wide context, e.g., through meetings, seminars, national and international conferences, and in the form of informal reports, and peer-reviewed publications. As a PhD student, you will as well take courses corresponding to 60 ECTS and be involved in teaching on the undergraduate level corresponding to about 10% of your time.

Read more about doctoral studies at Chalmers here.

Qualifications
To qualify as a PhD student, you must have a master’s level degree corresponding to at least 240 ECTS in a relevant field such as physics, materials science, or chemistry. To be successful, you need to be highly motivated and have high analytical and communication skills. Since the position is connected to the ISIS PhD Studentship Program, it is envisaged that the PhD student will spend in total 12-18 months at ISIS out of the total 48 months for the PhD student position.

Postdoc position in spectroscopic characterization of nanocellulose

Doktorand
Läs mer Jul 11
Project description
This postdoctoral position is a full-time temporary employment opportunity for two years. The project is a part of the Wallenberg Wood Science Center (WWSC). The goal of the project is to explore and adjust the dielectric properties of nanocellulose.

Nanocellulose is used in various applications due to its impressive mechanical properties, thermal stability, and degradability. The high symmetry of nanocellulose results in the generation of high net value dipole moments of C-H and C-OH bonds.  This leads to high dielectric properties that, when interacting with electromagnetic waves impact light absorption, reflection, refraction, and transmission of the waves. The main tasks of the project will involve surface modification of nanocrystalline cellulose, creating films from it, and characterizing the dielectric properties using broadband dielectric spectroscopy and other relevant methods.

In the project nanocrystalline cellulose (CNC) will be used as the cellulose material. An initial part of the project is to characterize and surface functionalize the CNC. The surface modification is intended to promote uniform CNC aggregation during film formation. Since the alignment of crystals depends on how the film is prepared, different methodologies for film formation must be considered. The overall goal is to find correlations between dielectric properties, alignment of the crystals, and the surface properties of the crystallites in order to design films with tailor made dielectric properties. A key parameter in this process is to develop methodologies for creating interphases that provide the overall structure with flexibility, strength, and excellent optical properties such as transparency or uniform (tunable) structural color.

The Wallenberg Wood Science Center (WWSC) is a research center dedicated to achieving scientific excellence in the development of new materials from trees. The center aims to generate knowledge and build competence and expertise to drive innovative and sustainable value creation from forest resources. WWSC is a multidisciplinary collaborative effort between KTH, Chalmers, and Linköping University, made possible by a donation from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. The forest industry also supports WWSC through the national platform Treesearch.

Information about the division and the department
The project will take place at Chalmers department of Chemistry and chemical Engineering, Division of Chemistry och biochemistry under Professor Gunnar Westman. Division of Chemistry and Biochemistry has research within analytical, physical, theoretical, inorganic and organic chemistry. It is an interdisciplinary group with appr 10 research groups focusing on synthesis and characterization of materials. Our goal is to correlate molecular structure with properties, function and activity of studied materials and systems.

Major responsibilities
As a postdoc, you will be expected to perform spectroscopic characterization of prepared Nanocellulose films, evaluate, analyze and interpret data from measurements. Furthermore, you will be responsible for experimental planning, sample preparation, characterization, data handling, writing of publications and communications of results from the project. You may also take part in supervision of PhD and master students.

PhD student position on Biotechnology solutions for fungal infections

Doktorand
Läs mer Jul 3
This role offers a unique opportunity to tackle the critical challenge of fungal infections by developing innovative diagnostic methods and potential therapeutic agents using cutting-edge biotechnology. As a PhD student, you will engage in pioneering research on fungal-based molecules with potential health benefits, supported by state-of-the-art infrastructure and a diverse, multidisciplinary team.

This position not only promises to advance your scientific skills through hands-on research, experimentation, and scientific communication but also enables you to contribute to meaningful advancements in human health.

Project description
In the past decade, fungal diseases have caused an estimated million deaths annually, and over one billion people suffer from severe fungal infections. Currently, there are few antifungal drugs approved for use in humans. The last antifungals approved for human use were characterized in 2002. On another hand, the timely detection of fungal infections remains challenging, and there is a need for the development of faster diagnostic assay methods.

The project will implement cutting-edge integrated fungal biotechnology to produce and characterize fungal-based molecules with potential immunomodulatory effects in cells of the human innate immune system, e.g., macrophages. The findings will provide an initial indication of their potential health-promoting benefits expecting to correlate the molecular structure of the oligomers based on a glycomic approach (enzymatic fingerprint coupled to mass spectrometry) to their immune response in human cells. The project includes a complete characterization of the fungal molecules obtained from the pathogen's cell wall to ensure that these can be used in future studies to improve diagnosis and prevent fungal infections in humans.

Information about the division and the department
The project will take place at The department of Life sciences (LIFE) and the Division of Industrial Biotechnology (IndBio) under the supervision of Assistant Professor Amparo Jimenez Quero. IndBio is an interdisciplinary group with appr 45 international researchers focusing on microbiology, enzymology, and molecular biology. Our goal is to use renewable resources for sustainable production of fuels, chemicals, and materials, contributing to a sustainable society and circular economy. LIFE consists of 5 divisions, and here you find potential collaborators as well as a range of scientific instruments, expertise and lab infrastructure. The PhD project will also offer a close collaboration with groups at Stockholm University, KTH and SciLifeLab in Stockholm.

Major responsibilities
As PhD student the main time of your working appointment is devoted to your research project, where you will be responsible for planing, running experiments and evaluation the scientific outcome. You are also expected to communicate your results in different settings, group and division meetings at Chalmers but also external events as workshop and conferences.

Post-doc in sensor perception modeling

Forskarassistent
Läs mer Maj 24
Advance Safe Automated Driving with Cutting-Edge Perception Models - join us as we drive toward a Vision Zero future!

Automated driving systems (ADS) promise a safer future on our roads, and we’re at the forefront of this revolution. Central to the operation of ADS is perception—the eyes and ears of autonomous vehicles. As the importance of perception models is moving to the forefront of both virtual and ADS development, we are seeking a postdoc to lead the charge into efficient and accurate (enough) perception models. Your mission: develop open-source, transparent, and efficient perception models that seamlessly integrate with stochastic optimal control and that can be used in virtual safety assessment. 

Project description
The position is at the Vehicle Safety Division with extensive collaboration with the Systems and Control Division, and will be in close cooperation with the Mathematical Sciences, and Computer Science and Engineering departments.

In the Vehicle Safety Division we perform research on both human factors and engineering to better understand the safety problem, find solutions, and assess the impact of both problems and solutions on safety. Specifically, within the research area of virtual safety assessment, we work on methodological aspects of prospective (predictive) traffic safety assessment of technologies and driver behavior. This post-doc position will focus on improving efficiency and accuracy of these virtual safety assessments. 

In the Systems and Control Division, department of Electrical Engineering, we are working on modeling and numerical optimization of problems in the areas of robotics, electromobility and autonomous driving. Also in this context, the post-doc focus is on efficient simulations.

In automated driving, perception systems are crucial for perceiving surroundings, localizing vehicles, and facilitating path planning and decision-making processes, which are essential for vehicle control. Perception technology must accurately detect traffic scenarios and, depending on the application, predict the behaviour of other road users. Perceiving them timely and accurately is a main challenge in automated driving, and addressing this challenge requires a considerable amount of research.

This research project is on the domain of sensor perception modeling, within the application areas of virtual safety assessment of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and automated driving systems (ADS). The focus of the post-doc is on developing open-source, transparent, and computationally efficient perception models in the application areas. The work will also include integration of the perception models into the prediction module for optimal, model-based, stochastic control in ADS. Sensitivity analyses on how these models trade accuracy, complexity and computational efficiency in virtual safety assessment simulations and in model predictive control for ADS is also part of the project.

Information about the division and the department
At the Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences (M2), the engineers and researchers of tomorrow are trained with their eyes set on the transition to a sustainable transport system. Our research portfolio is unique and covers all modes of transport and contributes to environmentally friendly process technology and sustainable energy supply. Through collaboration with the society and industry, we strive to solve society's major challenges - together.


Major responsibilities
You are going to perform research on the topic of sensor perception modeling, and are expected to publish papers of high quality, visit and present at international conferences and collaborate with teammates across departments and organizations.

You are expected to take active part in teaching relating to educational programs in close connection to the area of the project. Another important aspect involves collaboration within academia and with society at large.

The position is regarded as a full-time employment with a competitive monthly salary and full social benefits.

Qualifications
- A PhD degree in a field relevant to the position is mandatory.
- Extensive experience with programming (for example, Python, Matlab, and/or C++).
- Good writing and oral skills in English.
- You should be comfortable with and good at interacting with others in international projects (across organizations).
- You are expected to be somewhat accustomed to teaching, and to demonstrate good potential within research and education.

If you have experience of working with sensor modeling, vehicle dynamics and sensor data (specifically time-series data), and/or experience with pre-crash virtual safety assessment, that is highly meritorious.


To qualify for the position of postdoc, you must hold a doctoral degree awarded no more than three years prior to the application deadline (according to the current agreement with the Swedish Agency for Government Employers). The date shown in your doctoral degree certificate is the date we use, as this is the date you have met all requirements for the doctoral degree.

The project will focus on discover and exploreenzymes for wood tailoring coupled to functionalization of wood polymers. A cornerstone in the research will be to understand the wood and the effect enzymatic action have on it.

Project description
In this WWSC project, our goal is to discover enzymes that can be used for tailoring and functionalization of wood polymers and wood-derived molecules. By applying characterization methodology of both the structure and the chemistry of the wood-derived streams, we can both identify how the enzyme act on the wood and understand their application potential. The overall aim is to identify glycosyl transferases (GTs) that can act on wood polymers and wood-derived molecules. The starting point will be to discover enzymes from the collection of filamentous fungi the lab has access to from studies of biodiversity in South East Asia. Identified enzymes will be carefully characterized and applied for functionalization.

The project involves molecular biology to clone and heterologously express genes of interest, protein production and purification, and detailed biochemical characterization of identified enzymes, including determination of substrate specificities using wood derived streams. Detailed structural and chemical characterization of the wood-derived streams will be an integrated part of the project. The project will also involve various systems biology approaches to identify new interesting enzymes to study. WWSC provides a network for collaboration with other researchers that are experts in different areas.

PhD student position in microwave hyperthermia cancer treatment

Doktorand
Läs mer Jul 4
We are looking for a newly graduated Master Student with interest in biomedical applications of microwaves that will work within the Biomedical Electromagnetic research group at the department of Electrical Engineering. The focus of this group is to develop new and more effective medical methods and systems for diagnostics and treatment. Stroke diagnostics, breast cancer detection, microwave hyperthermia treatment are a few examples. The main activities in the development towards these applications involve, signal processing methods, antenna systems design and design of measurement hardware. Construction of complete prototype systems for clinical tests is a key goal in all projects.  

Project description
In this project you will work in a team on developing a multi-channel hyperthermia system for focused heat delivery into deep seated tumors. Hyperthermia, i.e heating of tumour tissue in the range of 40–44°C, is applied in combination with radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy to improve clinical outcome. In recent years, the ability of hyperthermia to dramatically enhance tumour control rates and even increase patient survival rates for most common cancer types has been demonstrated. At Chalmers, in close collaborations with medical expertise at the Sahlgrenska Academy at Gothenburg University, we are developing microwave hyperthermia systems to improve the treatment outcome for patients with advanced cancer in head and neck (H&N) and for children with brain tumours. Deep penetration in the body is achieved by using constructive wave interference from a large number of antennas organized in multiple rings around the patient. The heat effect is developed in the tumor by the transmission of microwaves which are adjusted in time, frequency and amplitude to constructively interfer in the desired focus spot.

Using the numerical model of our HT system, we are the first group worldwide that has been able to achieve an adequate brain tumor temperature with desirable precision and without inducing unacceptable hot spots. In the next, inherent step, we aim to develop the prototype of the heating device to verify the achieved numerical results on anthropomorphic phantoms and bring the technology into clinical practice.

Information about the division and the project
In this project you will participate in research to develop the present UWB hyperthermia system into a clinical prototype that will be used in clinical evaluation of cancer treatment of brain tumors. In particular you will:


• develop electromagnetic models with commercial software tools (e.g. CST, Comsol) and use them as a tool to improve the antenna system as well as its mechanical design,
• develop the water bolus and its cooling system,
• develop a feedback control of the amplifier system in direct connection to the antenna system,
• performing measurements and calibration of the antenna systems.

The work will be carried out within the Biomedical Electromagnetic research group at the department of Electrical Engineering. The group has its own state-of-the-art Bioelectromagnetic lab at Chalmers and is one of several partners in the newly built SahlBEC laboratory located at the Sahlgrenska University Hospital. Such clinical environment enables development and faster transition of new medtech technologies into clinical practice.

At the Department of Electrical Engineering, we conduct internationally renowned research in biomedical engineering, antenna systems, signal processing, image analysis, automatic control, automation, mechatronics, and communication systems. We offer a dynamic and international research environment with about 200 employees from more than 20 countries, and with extensive national and international research collaborations with academia, industry and society. The department provides more than 70 courses, of which most are included in the Master’s Programs ”Biomedical Engineering”, ”Systems, Control and Mechatronics”, and ”Communication Engineering”.

Major responsibilities
Your major responsibilities are to pursue your own doctoral studies. You are expected to develop your own scientific concepts and communicate the results of your research verbally and in writing. The position generally also includes teaching on Chalmers' undergraduate level or performing other duties corresponding to 20 per cent of working hours.

Read more about doctoral studies at Chalmers here.

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 (physics, mathematics or computer science).

Post doctoral position within cell wall accessibility characterization

Forskarassistent
Läs mer Jun 30
We are looking for a driven postdoctoral researcher who will join two multidisciplinary teams at Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at Chalmers working jointly on valorization of biomass and focus on developing an essential methodology for assessing the cell wall accessibility, through confocal laser microscopy and fluorescence recovery measurements.

The fundamental knowledge gained through this methodology will broadly open up for improved design of separation and functionalization processes for forest biomass.

Project description
The position is located at the Chemistry and Chemical Engineering department at Chalmers where we have a long tradition of multidisciplinary approach to valorization of biomass ranging from chemistry and technology of traditional pulping processes to novel routes of separating, fractionating and functionalizing forest biomass components in the spirit of biorefinery and biomaterials development. Apart from extensive collaborations with forest industry, the presence of the world-leading Wallenberg Wood Science Center has during the past 13 years strengthened the collaborative environment and facilitated access to extensive research infrastructure. In that context, development of novel methods for characterization of cell wall accessibility is an essential component in gaining the fundamental mechanistic understanding for the separation (and also valorization) processes applied on wood and forest biomass in general.

This project will be conducted with two research groups (Anna Ström's and Merima Hasani's groups) working jointly on valorization of biomass all the way from primary separation of the components to their functionalization towards specific applications. Our complementary competences will ensure a broad collaborative scientifc approch and strong practical experimental support. Moreover, the project will be financed and conducted within the framework of the Wallenberg Wood Science Center that will provide a wider impact of the work and open up for further development and collaborations.

Wallenberg Wood Science Center (WWSC) is a research center striving for scientific excellence with a focus on new materials from trees. The center creates knowledge and builds competence for an innovative and sustainable future value creation from forest raw materials. WWSC is a multidisciplinary collaboration between KTH, Chalmers, and Linköping University. The base is a donation from Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, and the forest industry is supporting WWSC via the national platform Treesearch.
An important part of the center's scientific work is development of analytical tools related to separation and recovery of wood components, which is the core of this postdoctoral project.


Major responsibilities
The main responsibility of the postdoctoral researcher will be to work on developing methodology for assessing the wood cell wall porosity, whether native or partly processed. The main focus will be on adapting the confocal microscopy investigation of the fluorescence recovery after bleaching to wood material, but complementary analytical methods will also be of high relevance. The work will require a multidisciplinary and collaborative approach and will be closely related to the previous and the ongoing work/collaborations in our two research groups.

Qualifications
To qualify for the position, you must have a PhD degree (the PhD degree must not have been earned more than three years prior to the application deadline) within the field of biomass processing and valorization or solid biomaterial characterization. Experience of working with advanced microscopy and/or other imaging techniques, FRAP in particular is highly meritorious. As a person you are self-motivated, structured and have a problem solving attitude along with a great ability to collaborate.
