This exciting PhD post, within a creative and productive team is about latest developments at the cross section between numerical simulation, cloud computing and ANN technology.

  • Creative, independent an high-quality aR&D at the crooss section between numerical simulation, cloud computing and ANN technoloogy
  • Development of ANNs to (partially) take oover the functionality of advanced numerical simulation software
  • Develop and apply Invertible Neural Networks (INNs) to solve forward and inverse problems correlating numerically predicted physical properties of porous media to material parameters
  • Establish cloud-computing-based workflow to allow users to train their own ANNs/INNs by creating simulation data online
  • Develop solutions for software based integration of numerical simulation tools and ANN technoloogy into a high yield cloud platform
  • Interpret experimental results and simulated results regarding physical properties of porous media
  • Master Degree in Engineering Sciences, Software Development, Mathematics or Physics
  • Knowledge about and application experience concerning Artificial Intelligence Software is a must
  • Knowledge about and application experience concerning Numerical Simulation Software is a bonus, where knowledge of OpenFOAM is counted as big bonus
  • Knowledge about and application experience concerning Cloud Technology is a bonus
  • Advanced skills in software development are a big bonus
  • Drive to quickly move R&D results to application
  • High committment towards excellency
  • 100% fluency in written and oral English is a must, skills in German are a bonus
  • Good in presenting
  • Willingness to spend 12-14 weeks (= one lecture semester) at partner University (UiT Arctic University of Norway), if need be

Duties:

  • Self-efficient, high-quality R&D in the cited fields
  • Regular presentation of advances to development partners from industry and colleagues in academia, at scientific conferences and regular (online) meetings
  • Finding creative, efficient and mainly: working solutions
  • Always find ways to consider inputs from supervisor(s) and development partners
  • Simultaneously focus on industrial as well as academics requirements
  • Actively push work towards publishable results; Publishing results in high-quality journals is essential
