    Faculty of Engineering Science and Technology - CeSOS – Sintef Fisheries and Aquaculture

    Subsea operations may involve anchor handling, fish trawling, subsea system installation, heavy lift operations, etc. Such operations may represent a significant risk due to operational errors and demanding environmental conditions. Several accidents have taken place in connection with such operations. Most notable in recent years is the Bourbon Dolphin accident. One of the major issues is to handle emergency situations within a limited time frame. In this project, existing and extended tools for simulating loads and responses of structures and equipment during relevant subsea operations will be applied to study aspects of how accidents develop into catastrophic consequences. In particular, the consequences of fault situations will be assessed. These studies will serve as a basis for further development of training simulators for crew and will contribute in optimised operations planning in order to limit the risks. This work will be complementary to a study of human factors aspects of the risk and other related work in the project Safe Operations of Subsea Systems managed by SINTEF Fisheries and Aquaculture.

    Application deadline: 17.01.2010

    A cost efficient exploitation of wind energy in shallow water is based on fixed wind turbines. In deeper waters floating turbines provide an attractive alternative. The present research project will focus on the analysis and development of wind turbines in intermediate water-depths, comparing fixed and floating concepts. This involves both establishing a set of concept evaluation criteria and applying these in a conceptual evaluation of wind turbines for water depth 50-100 m. While the focus will be on buoyant support structures such as tension leg or catenary-moored spar or semi-submersible systems, bottom-fixed or articulated wind turbine concepts will also be considered. An important part of this study will be the assessment of the dynamic behaviour of the whole system under wind and wave forces.

    Project team and contact:

    The work in this project supported by Statoil, will be carried out with Professors Paul Sclavounos, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Torgeir Moan, CeSOS/NTNU as principal investigators. The work will be integrated in ongoing research related to renewable offshore energy conducted at CeSOS and in the Offshore Wind Technology Centre (Nowitech).

    Are you interested in contributing to leading-edge research and developing top competence in automation of manufacturing systems? We encourage you to apply for a 3 year Post Doc fellowship or a PhD scholarship within the research area manufacturing systems at NTNU, Faculty of Engineering Science and Technology, Department of Production and Quality Engineering.

    Modern manufacturing systems are based on advanced technology and high levels of automation. The system’s ability to produce effectively at high level of automation under constantly changing demands is a key to competitiveness. Such ability does not exist yet for small batch manufacturing. The research challenge is to develop automation solutions around industrial robots to create flexibility and automatic reconfigurability to enable very fast changeovers between production batches for different products, and thus more effective and competitive manufacturing systems.

    We are looking for a person with relevant PhD or master’s degree and interest in robotics and flexible automation in manufacturing. The fellowship holder will become part of an active, industry-focused research unit at NTNU/SINTEF within manufacturing systems. The work will be carried out within the industry led research program KUPP. The industrial partners in this program are the companies KA Raufoss and Teeness, and research partners are SINTEF Raufoss Manufacturing and NTNU.

    PhD fellowship within Modelling of European energy markets for low emission scenarios (IME-071-2009).

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    LinkS is an international multi-disciplinary project combining global top-down climate related research and bottom-up regional energy system design. The main objective is to develop an integrated decision support framework for more sustainable energy infrastructures.

    Within this project, models need to be developed for optimization and simulation of European gas and power markets and their interaction. The basis for these models will be the results from the global climate models, which need to be disaggregated to country levels. A transition to a large share of renewable energy production will necessitate the transfer of large quantities of gas and electric power across Europe. A significant share of the research work will be targeted towards the development of simulation models to asses the optimal investments in the power and gas networks to enable these energy transfers within Europe. Subsequently these models will be used to analyze alternative developments of the European energy markets with a time horizon of several decades.

    The PhD study will be conducted in close cooperation with the Department of Industrial Economics and Technology Management at NTNU, SINTEF Energy Research and SINTEF Applied Economics. A background in operations research is preferred, but candidates with a strong background in power engineering or mathematics/physics and experience from and/or interest in energy market modelling can also be considered.

    A post doctor position for 2 years in the field of Cryptology and Network Security is now open at Department of Telematics (ITEM) , Faculty of Information Technology, Mathematics and Electrical Engineering, The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).

    Hi,

    Theo mình biết thì 2 năm đầu làm việc (dạng Ph.D or PostDoc) có lương tháng cố đinh được ưu tiên giảm thuế vì là người nước ngoài nên mức thuế được giảm khoảng 2,8% so với người bản xứ có cùng mức lương ( Link: http://www.skatteetaten.no/en/taxno...ardfradrag---inntektsaret-2008/#kapitteltekst ). ~ 28% thuế hàng năm.

    Theo thu nhập của một số bạn Ph.D bên này thì nhà cửa thuê của trường tầm 500$ + chi phí ăn uống 500$ nữa là OK. Vị chi hết 1000$/tháng.

    Với mức lương Ph.D 360 000 - 400 000 kr./năm thì mỗi tháng lương sau khi trừ thuế rồi sẽ có được khoảng 22 000 - 24 000 kr. tháng ~ 3500$ - 4000$.

    [FONT=&quot]Information about the department is also available at: http://www.geo.uio.no [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Job description[/FONT][FONT=&quot] Applications are invited for a research fellowship (PhD) position in reservoir characterization at the Department of Geosciences, University of Oslo, Norway.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]The position is available within the Norwegian Research Council funded Center for Environment-friendly Energy Research (CEER) SUCCESS - a state-of-the-art research centre and provider of innovative solutions for CO2 storage. The objectives of the centre are to develop and provide a sound scientific base for CO2 injection, storage and monitoring, to fill gaps in exizting strategic knowledge, and provide a system for learning and development of new competence.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Geological reservoir characterization[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]The storage capacity and performence of a reservoir depends on its overall architecture including seals and not least its internal geological heterogeneities, determining both invasion and trapping of CO2. Depositional and structural (faults and fractures) heterogeneities may lead to compartementalization and preferential fluid flow. Reservoir heterogeneity exists on all levels from pore geometry, textural (grain size, sorting, cement), strata heterogeneity ([/FONT][FONT=&quot]shale beds/laminae, sedimentary structures), to sandbody geometry and dimension, stacking pattern and bounding surfaces. [/FONT][FONT=&quot]Fluid flow behaviour and trapping efficiency is to a very large extent determined by reservoir heterogeneity, and the geological reservoir model should include heterogeneities at different scales. A geological reservoir model for CO2 must be based on analogue studies, [/FONT][FONT=&quot]conceptual models and sequence stratigraphy, together with [/FONT][FONT=&quot]reservoar geophysics and inversion modeling. [/FONT][FONT=&quot]Formation properties from dynamic (production history, well, time-lapse seismic etc) data should also be incorporated into the geological model, as well as integration with reservoir flow modeling.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]The PhD study will involve multidisciplinary methods and both field and theoretical work needed to characterize reservoirs and their behavior during CO2 storage.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Compulsory service (teaching etc) shall represent 25% of the total hours of work. [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Required qualifications: [/FONT][FONT=&quot]The candidate should have a general background in geology. Experience in sedimentology, reservoir characterization, hydrogeology and fluid flow modeling is also beneficial. The candidate will cooperate with national and international partners within SUCCESS CEER.[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]with a well internationally recognized quality. The department does, together with five other departments at SLU, form the Uppsala BioCenter (SLU - BioCentrum - SLU Uppsala and SLU - Institutionen för växtbiologi och skogsgenetik).[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Carbon metabolism and allocation are one of the core issues in plant science due to their high importance in design of plant production for different applications both in agriculture and industry. As new techniques and concepts in plant biotechnology emerge, it is now possible to direct carbon flux to different fractions of carbon polymers such as starch, fructan, beta-glucan, cellulose and oil in higher plants. We are focusing on two currently hot topics in plant biology, bioenergy and functional food. Our research goals are to use high technology in metabolic engineering such as transcription factor technology to reprogram carbon metabolism and produce required carbon polymers for many industrial purposes in bioenergy and functional food. For the details of our research please visit our website (http://vaxt.vbsg.slu.se/research/sun/).[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]You will be supported by a postdoctoral stipend for the first half year and by a salary for the rest of one and half years. The objective of your research is to understand carbon allocation in cereal endosperm at a level of molecular biology and provide a theoretical support on breeding of cereal crops for production of functional food and bioenergy. You will work on how carbon flux is directed in developing cereal endosperm with techniques mostly used in molecular cell biology including employing isotopes as a tool.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Applicants should be highly motivated and interested in molecular cell biology. Knowledge and technical skills in analysis of gene and protein expression such as Real- Time PCR, microarrays, 454 sequencing, proteomics and in carbohydrate research will be considered as good merits.[/FONT]

    Available PhD position with the group of Networks and Distributed systems at UiO

    The group of Networks and Distributed systems at the Informatics Department, University of Oslo has one available PhD position in the area of Middleware for Distribution and Dissemination.
    The deadline for applications is 31th March, 2010.
    The research will be carried out in collaboration with the Computer Systems group of VU University Amsterdam, in particular with the group headed by Maarten van Steen.
    PhD Project

    The position is in the general area of middleware for distributing and disseminating information in large-scale dynamic systems.
    We are witnessing a dramatic increase in the use of data-centric distributed systems such as the dynamic Web, sensor networks, network-monitoring systems, and various publish-subscribe systems. The ubiquitous presence of such systems creates very large application networks that spread over large geographical areas and diverse intra- and inter-organizational domains. The visions of massive demand-driven data dissemination, intensive processing, and intelligent fusion in order to build dynamic knowledge bases that seemed infeasible just a few years ago are about to come true.

    However, the realization of this potential demands adequate support from middleware that could be used to deploy and support such systems. At this time, both COTS middleware software and even state-of-art research middleware lack the technological foundations to cope with the enormous volume of data, constantly changing underlying network connectivity, and dynamic system organization. Typically, numerous information transmitters produce continuous data flows as well as massive unpredictable bursts of data at geographically dispersed locations. This data needs to be rapidly processed, routed, and classified by the degree of criticality, and intelligently fused. A large number of potentially mobile clients can issue multiple concurrent queries of varying urgency, priority, and precision requirements. In order to build a system that is capable of handling such a demanding situation, there is a clear need to develop new middleware technologies for scalable, mobility, adaptive, and reliable handling of these high-volume dynamic information flows.
    We are seeking a student who is interested in designing, developing, and evaluating techniques that address these issues.
    Suitable Background and Requirements

    Applicants must have a degree in Computer Science, or in a related study, with excellent results. They must also be able to demonstrate interest in scientific research. The ideal candidate for the position will have strong background in distributed computing.
    You may apply if you have not yet completed your degree, but expect to do so before the position starts.
    University of Oslo is an equal opportunity employer.
    Knowledge of Norwegian is not a prerequisite for application. English is our working language for research. The current PhD students and postdocs in our group are coming from more than 5 different countries.
    We expect the candidate to be internationally oriented and willing to do, for example, Summer internships abroad.
    Details about Employment

    A PhD position is a regular job with social benefits and with salary starting from 353.000 NOK per year.
    The currently open positions are for three years with a possibility to apply for extending the time period to 4 years. A 4 year position means that 25% of the time will be for duties beyond the normal research and project work, such as teaching and supervision of master students.
    Host Institution and Environment

    The University of Oslo is Norway's largest and oldest institution of higher education. Founded in 1811, today the University of Oslo has approx. 30,000 students and 4,600 employees. Four Nobel Prize winners indicate the quality of the research at the University. The Department of Informatics has been a home to a number of world-renown scientists, such as Turing Award recipients Prof. Dahl and Prof. Nygaard.

    PhD position in Food lipid structure (Aarhus University, DK)

    PhD position in Food lipid structure



    Applications are invited for a PhD position at the University of Aarhus, Faculty of Agricultural Sciences (DJF), Department of Food Science. The position is available for three years beginning as soon as possible.

    Research area and project description
    Vegetable oil is used in the chocolate and confectionery manufacturing to reduce raw material costs and processing time. As the oil crystallises, it becomes an important contributor to the texture and mouthfeel of the products. Crystallisation behaviour of oil blends is complex to understand as many species of triglycerides are present. The final network of crystallised fat depends on processing of the fat-based products, which involves cooling, heating and agitation. Today, the industry lacks knowledge of how non-isothermal crystallisation of oil/fats combined with shearing and addition of other compounds, affects the structure and functionality of their products.

    We are looking for a skilled PhD-candidate to study how relevant dynamic processes affect microstructure, rheological properties and sensory attributes of vegetable oil for use in chocolate and confectionery. The applied analytical method will be confocal laser scanning microscopy, oscillation rheology, texture analyzer and pulsed nuclear magnetic resonance analysis.

    Qualifications and specific competences
    Applicants to the PhD position must have a relevant Master’s degree (or graduate in the very near future – documentation for final thesis and date of examination must be enclosed in the application) or equivalent.

    The PhD candidate for this project must have a general background in food science, physical chemistry or corresponding qualifications. A study visit abroad is anticipated during the PhD.

    Application procedures
    Applications should be submitted online and include the following enclosures:

    • Motivation letter (application)
    • CV and publication list, if any
    • Diplomas including transcripts*

    *Note that you need to calculate your grade point average, both for the MSc part and for the BSc. Grade point average should be weighted relative to course credits, and is calculated as the sum of each grade times the course credits (e.g. ECTS) divided by the total sum of course credits. Pass/fail courses are not included in the grade point average. Information on how to transfer from ECTS/US grade equivalent to Danish scale and how to calculate grade point average can be foundhere.
