In Sweden, as much as 1.5 million people fish annually for recreational purposes with an expenditure around 15 billion SEK per year. Moreover, recreational fishing is an important element of the nature-based tourism sector in Sweden that supports small and medium size entrepreneurs, mostly in rural areas. Maintenance of viable fish populations and sustainable management of fisheries are necessary prerequisites for long-term provisioning of recreational activities, and economic and rural development. The challenges to fish stocks include both environmental problems and habitat loss, and increasing pressure from recreational fishing itself.

13. Fully Funded PhD Position in grid connection of renewable energy systems

Summary of PhD Program:

The integration of renewable energy into the electricity grid is increasing. An important difference for the grid connection of traditional electricity production such as nuclear and hydropower, which dominates the Swedish grid, and renewable energy, is that the generator can be connected synchronously to the grid. For intermittent energy sources, such as ocean, wind and solar energy, the connection must be made with an intermediate step with power converters. By connecting to the grid with power converters, the inertia from the generator is not transferred to the grid, leading to a power grid that is more sensitive to differences in produced and consumed power, causing frequency fluctuations.

18. Fully Funded PhD Position in Physics

Summary of PhD Program:

One peculiarity of polymers is the pronounced non Newtonian behavior or in other words the change in viscosity for different shear rates. The distinctive changes in the shear and loss moduli can be explained by microscopic properties like the structure or internal relaxation of the molecules. However, experimental data on the changes in the local dynamics of polymers under shear load are scarce or even missing our days. Still such information is essential to draw a complete picture of flow in polymers.

In this PhD, we will apply high resolution neutron spectroscopy to polymers under flow. The experiments will be complemented by small angle scattering experiments probing the microscopic structure and rheology. We will reveal phase transitions under shear and trace possible changes in the topological interactions of the polymer chains for higher shear rates and advance our understanding of viscoelasticity on a microscopic level.
