This position creates an inclusive environment to closely work with the Swedish industry in developing methods and tools for cabin noise reduction, which is a critical aspect for modern vehicle development. It also provides an excellent education environment to gradually develop competence and profound knowledge in scientific research and group work.

Information about the division

This position is set at the division of Marine Technology in Chalmers University of Technology, and meanwhile maintained with direct co-research/-education with the division of Fluid Dynamics in the same university. The Marine Technology division carries out fundamental and applied research to enable the development and improvement of marine technology, such as ships, subsea systems and renewable energy solutions. We support industry and societies world-wide with knowledge, understanding and solutions that minimize emissions from shipping, improve the life time and reduces maintenance need for equipment in the harsh ocean environment, and ensures safe operations. Our activities are related primarily to development and application of numerical modelling, e.g. CFD, FEA, FSI, optimization, ML, but we are also involved in both experiments and real life monitoring to support our findings. Besides research, our division is also involved in education at Master's and doctoral level.

We are involved in the master program Mobility Engineering (Naval Architecture – Marine Technology profile) and we are part of the Nordic Master in Maritime Engineering. The research group consists of senior researchers, post-doc and PhD student. During the course of the project, supervision of master and bachelor thesis projects will be involved. Close communications with the Swedish marine industry will be conduced in a regular base.

Major responsibilities

As a full-time position, the PhD student should be able to independently develop numerical methods and codes, and collaborate with senior researchers/engineers and other students to solve problems. The position needs frequent communication, including meetings and workshops, with the industry and research organizations. Coding scripts and computing with CFD, FEM and acoustics computer programs will be required to complete daily tasks. The student should gradually develop competence in writing technical reports, and publishing high-quality scientific papers in journals or conferences.

Other duties:

  • Teaching duty and other department duties for the minimum amount of 10% of total working hours.
  • Full-time temporary employment for 4-5 years depending on the amount of department duties, where 10% is a minimum.
