2. Fully Funded PhD Position in active self-organization of DNA-coated vesicles

Summary of PhD Program:

In this project, you will produce an experimental model of DNA-coated vesicles with controllable stickiness to learn about the role of adhesion changes on cell motion. To grow from a shapeless clump into an intact animal, cells must move by pushing each other out of the way. How strong the cells stick together plays an important role in this process, but it is unknown how exactly changes in their stickiness affect their movement. You will address this question.

13. Fully Funded PhD Position in robot world models and building digital twins

Summary of PhD Program:

Mobile robots rely on skill-specific world models to perform tasks efficiently. These models, essential for path-planning, obstacle avoidance, and action planning, require regular updates to be able to describe the true state of the world reliably. In multi-robot systems, this update process becomes time-consuming and resolutions of conflicting world representation by different robots need to be resolved. In this Ph.D. project we will explore approaches to create building digital twins (BDTs) that are robot-independent and represent the geometry as well as the semantic of the environment at hand.

21. Fully Funded PhD Position in Statistics and AI for quantitative crowd dynamics modeling

Summary of PhD Program:

Whenever our safety and comfort in public areas are at risk because of dense crowds, crowd management failed. Even quite recently these dysfunctions have cascaded into unacceptable catastrophic events. This PhD position is part of the project AICrowd: AI-Based Pedestrian Crowd Modelling and Management, aimed at significantly improving the quantitative modelling of human crowd behavior, and fueled in part by having access to a massive amount of individual pedestrian data obtained through extensive (past an ongoing) experimental campaigns. The project involves two PhD candidates and encompasses three outstanding challenges: quantitative stochastic modeling of crowds, scalable model learning, and optimal actuation for experimental design and control.

22. Fully Funded PhD Position in Magnetic sensing devices with tuneable detection range

Summary of PhD Program:

The next generation of sensing tools are expected to deliver top performance for high precision detection, whilst having tuneable properties, being ultracompact and multifunctional, and provide seamless integration in hybrid platforms. Magnetoresistive sensors can fulfil the requirements of high sensitivity and spatial resolution in magnetic field detection, ideal to leverage applications. Still, their operation parameters are set to fit (usually narrow) final requirements. These are defined and imprinted during thin-film deposition and fabrication. Being able to manipulate, as needed and during operation, the sensing device properties has the potential to push further the limits of performance, broaden applications of spintronic sensors, or possibly extend their lifetime.

24. Fully Funded PhD Position in alkaline water electrolysis

Summary of PhD Program:

The PhD position will focus on the behavior of an electrolyzer when it is turned off. This is especially relevant for electrolyzers that are coupled to variable renewable electricity supply, such as sun and wind that are not always available. When an electrolyzer is shut down, there is still a lot of energy inside the electrolyzer, which will slowly dissipate in a self-discharge process. This can potentially be detrimental to the electrodes and can lead to a poorer performance when the electrolyzer is taken into operation again. Goal of the PhD position is to elucidate the self-discharge process.
