3. PhD Research Fellow in Sedimentary Geology – NFR Centre for Sustainable Subsurface Resources (CSSR)

Summary of PhD Positions:

There is a vacancy for a PhD Research Fellow in the field of sedimentary geology at the Department of Earth Science.The position is for a fixed-term period of 3 years with the possibility of a 4th year with compulsory other work (e.g. teaching duties at the Department). The position is part of the Center of Sustainable Subsurface Resources (CSSR).

4. PhD position in physical oceanography at the Geophysical Institute

Summary of PhD Positions:

This PhD project will focus on melting ice and changes in wind and ocean currents related to global warming in Disco Bay on Greenland. In Disco Bay Jakobshavn Glacier enters the ocean, and greatly impacts the seasonal hydrography, sea ice and circulation in the bay where the locals fish and hunt. The objective will be achieved primarily through analysis of available and new observations, numerical simulations, and theoretical considerations. The available observations are hydrographic profiles from local research vessels, helicopters and possibly from the sea ice during winter. The processes of interest include freshwater runoff, air-sea-ice interaction, sea ice growth, inflow of warm Atlantic water, and related biological processes in the pelagic ecosystem.

5. PhD Position in Actionable Knowledge

Summary of PhD Positions:

The position is part of a transdisciplinary research program and initiative for establishing an international Centre of Excellence on actionable knowledge: AcKnowledges (for more information, see https://www.uib.no/en/acknowledges). The problem addressed is the following. Pressing complex issues such as pandemics, chemical risks, climate adaptation and biodiversity loss exemplify society’s heavy reliance on institutionalised expertise to inform and justify action. But in deploying knowledge for action, a narrow selection of knowledge is privileged, while other knowledge is silenced. Faced with uncertainty, high stakes, disputed values and urgent decision-making, a plurality of knowledges must be considered when finding ways to properly scope the decision space. The research will explore and assess whether a turn to a more inclusive and socially robust knowledge base, attentive to epistemic pluralism, can expand the range of policy options, avoid addressing the wrong problems and reduce unforeseen impacts.

7. PhD Research Fellow in Informatics – energy informatics, optimization and data science

Summary of PhD Positions:

All employees are expected to contribute to excellence through high quality research and teaching. The working environment for this position will be at Optimization research group, which conducts research and teaching in Operations Research, analytics, and data science. In recent years, supply chain and logistics observe increasing concerns on energy usage, climate gas emissions, wastes, and environmental considerations. The project “Sustainable Multimodal Transport Planning in Smart Cities” addresses central challenges in climate and energy transition – how do we achieve more efficient transport systems, to reduce emissions and other costs on society and to improve land use? The future state of transport systems in smart cities, where all information is connected and shared, requires taking advantage of innovative solutions such as intelligent and integrated multimodal transportation fleet (e.g. using autonomous electric trucks, cargo vessels, trains, plains, and drones) and novel solutions that deal with multimodal data (e.g., data analytics, machine learning and AI) in order to promote an effective use of resources and space and to have socially acceptable, and environmentally and economically sustainable transport systems for long-term performance.

9. PhD Research Fellow in acoustics

Summary of PhD Positions:

The candidate shall take part in the Acoustics research group’s activity on “Diffraction and dispersion effects in interaction of sound beams with viscoelastic and leaky ultrasonic guided waves”. The work aims to investigate and explain phenomena that have been observed in transmission of an ultrasonic beam through a solid plate immersed in a fluid. The phenomena are closely related to diffraction effects in beam excitation of the backward-wave branches of the associated Lamb wave modes. The PhD work will seek to reveal the precise mechanisms that connect the backward Lamb mode branches and the observed phenomena, using numerical modelling in comparison with experimental measurements. The numerical analysis will be based on complex eigenvalue analysis, in comparison with finite element modelling of the electroacoustic measurement system. The analysis will explore the energy flow and propagation of stress and displacement fields in backward- and forward-propagating leaky Lamb modes. Improved understanding and utilization of these mechanisms can significantly influence current and future industrial measurement methods.

11. PhD Research Fellow in Physical Chemistry of Pharmacy

Summary of PhD Positions:

The aim of the project is to develop new lipid nanoparticle (LNP) system for oppositely charged oligonucleotide-LNP delivery. Many cationic and ionizable lipids were developed for oligonucleotide delivery over the past couple of decades. The literature highlights direct links between the structure of the lipid and the resultant delivery efficiency and tolerability of the LNPs. To unleash the potential of DNA/RNA therapies, we intend to design novel lipid structures and LNP systems with increased delivery efficiency along with a metabolic and toxicity profile that would enable chronic dosing.

14. PhD Research Fellow in biostatistics of anti-microbial resistance

Summary of PhD Positions:

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a global threat, as disease-causing bacteria evolve resistance to our drug treatments. If we can learn how this evolution happens, we will be better equipped to design treatments and strategies to beat these diseases. Large-scale genetic data exists on AMR in different bacteria worldwide, and our collaborators are generating more. However, mathematical and statistical approaches to learn evolutionary behaviour from these data remain limited. Our group has recently developed several approaches for inferring evolutionary dynamics from diverse data, with successful applications to diverse biological and medical questions. This project will adapt, develop, and harness these approaches to learn how AMR evolves from existing and new data. Global comparison and application is a key aspect of this project: we will develop approaches that can be used by everyone, anywhere, to better inform clinical strategies given some observations. Biological experience is not required (training in the biological aspects of the project will be provided), but enthusiasm for engaging with biology and biological/medical collaborators is essential.

15. PhD Research Fellow in Quaternary geology and paleoclimate

Summary of PhD Positions:

The PhD Research Fellow is a part of the project “Past behavior of the Southern Ocean`s atmosphere and cryosphere (SOUTHSPHERE). The project seeks to deepen our understanding of the natural range of atmospheric climate variability in the Southern Ocean. We are particularly interested in the past behavior of the Southern hemisphere westerlies: powerful winds that regulate Earth`s climate by spurring ocean circulation, storing anthropogenic carbon, and exchanging heat. The southerly westerly winds play a very important role in the global climate system. Observations show that they also play an important role in today’s global warming. To reconstruct the climate system, the project will use glaciers as a climate indicator through studies of lakes. To make continuousreconstructions of the glaciers, one will use various proxy methods that include CT scanning and cryptotephra analysis to ensure the most robust reconstructions possible. All sediment samples were collected during the field season of 2019.
