Qualification Details

To qualify as a PhD student, you must have a master's level degree corresponding to at least 240 higher education credits in mechanical engineering, automation, applied mechanics, aerospace engineering, applied physics, or similar. Interest in applied, industrial, product development, along with a strong interest in modelling, simulation and computational methods and tools. Good written and oral communication skills in English is required, and in Swedish meriting. We believe that you are curious and open for interdisciplinary challenges, collaborative oriented both with academic and industrial colleauges. You possess a passion for combining theory and practice. The position requires sound verbal and written communication skills in English. If Swedish is not your native language, Chalmers offers Swedish courses.

- Good written and oral communication skills in Swedish.
- Knowledge in Data Analytics and Machine Learning and AI methods, combined with knowledge in statistical software (e.g., JMP) and ML/AI software platforms (e.g. TensorFlow).

Responsibilities/Job Description

We seek to strengthen the group in the areas of Digital Twin Driven Design of novel and radical technologies and solutions. Product development, especially in the space industry, needs to explore a large variety of design concepts, and to identify the most robust design alternative. However, exploring and predicting the performances of many different designs through physical testing is a very costly approach. As a PhD student you will learn and develop new methods and tools for exploiting the results from physical testing in digital models, as a means to reuse the results from physical testing to validate new designs and their ranges of validity. You are expected to develop your own scientific concepts and communicate the results of your research verbally and in writing, both in Swedish and in English.

The methods and tools are a part of building next generation digital design and engineering capabilities (exploiting AI and Machile Learning) for product development, targeting a wider and faster exploration of the design space.
