Background/ Objective: Obtaining quick & accurate thermal performance data is always a huge challenge, the traditional approach is to build a prototype, and carry out the real validation, which requires long lead-time and costly, with multiple iterations of validations, that might potentially impact the whole development. With the CFD simulation software, helps to reduce the development lead-time significantly, and by incorporating machine learning techniques, that provides a more accurate prediction of thermal performance data. More importantly, the digital thermal model is scalable to be used for different packages & hardware designs. Scope of Work: Students will build the digital thermal model with thermal CFD simulation software (Fluent or others), and use deep learning approach to train the model. Study & understand the governing equations behind the background of software solver. Build the detailed geometry/structure of a chip, and system-level thermal model in CFD environment. Establish & define the thermal properties in the CFD model & boundary condition. Run CFD model with multiple iterations and use the empirical data to train the model, and improve it, as part of the correlation. Analyze the result, identify the hot spots, plot the 3D dynamics/flow of thermal profile. Involve in the actual experimental setup, data collection or measurements. Study the resistance network of the entire system, and establish the full digital thermal resistance network model. Establish the scalable thermal model with a quick turn-around time, strong correlation of output with respect to inputs. The candidate will receive: A monthly stipend of S$4,000 Full sponsorship of school fees Your profile To be eligible for the IPP Scholarship, candidates must: Be a Singaporean Citizen or Permanent Resident at the time of application Be eligible for full-time PhD studies Have an interest in thermal management for IC packaging Knowledge in power semiconductor application Be able to work independently by using thermal analysis software Knowledgeable & hand-on experience in 3D-CAD and CFD simulation software Part of your life. Part of tomorrow. We make life easier, safer and greener – with technology that achieves more, consumes less and is accessible to everyone. Microelectronics from Infineon is the key to a better future. Efficient use of energy, environmentally-friendly mobility and security in a connected world – we solve some of the most critical challenges that our society faces while taking a conscientious approach to the use of natural resources.

    The offered position is part of the new European research and innovation project DARKO, to be coordinated by Örebro University.

    Project description

    The topic for this position is aligned with contemporary research topics in mapping and localisation for autonomous mobile robots. Specifically, the successful candidate will be expected to contribute to research on (1) representing and using maps of dynamics for ”flow-aware” robots that can learn, e.g., how people tend to move, and plan their motions to move safely and efficiently together with people; and (2) reliability-aware mapping and safe localisation, enabling robots to better self-monitor the quality of their mapping and localisation systems.

    Research in this project will be performed in close interaction with other doctoral students and senior researchers at Örebro University, and will also involve substantial collaboration with our international and national research partners from academia and industry.

    The successful candidate is autonomous, shows strong and independent problem solving and critical analytical abilities. Furthermore, the candidate has the ability to co-operate and possesses personal maturity. Fluent spoken and written command of English is essential, while knowledge of Swedish is not necessary. Excellent programming skills are also required, as in a keen interest in mathematics, computer science, and robotics. Prior knowledge in probabilistic methods is beneficial. Experience with robotic sensing and control, machine learning, and relevant software frameworks are other valuable merits.

    Supervision: The doctoral student will be supervised by Dr Martin Magnusson and Professor Achim J Lilienthal.

    The programme and the doctoral studentship

    The position is with the Centre for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS) at Örebro University and is funded through the DARKO research and innovation project (Dynamic Agile Production Robots That Learn and Optimize Knowledge and Operation). The doctoral student will belong to the MRO (Mobile Robotics and Olfaction) lab at AASS. The AASS centre (http://www.oru.se/aass) is a strong research environment and internationally known for its expertise within artificial intelligence and robotics. Nationally, the research in AI and Robotics at Örebro is leading, and this is evidenced by the University’s involvement in a number of high profile initiatives related to AI (see oru.se/ai).  Örebro University is highly active in the relevant European forums and platforms, and several EU-funded research projects. Örebro University is a modern, broad-based, and growing university. We endeavor to be an attractive place of work where members of staff feel a sense of pride and satisfaction. Currently, 1,500 employees and 17,000 students come to work and study at Örebro University.

    The doctoral programme consists of courses and an independent research project that you will present in a doctoral thesis. The programme concludes with a doctoral degree and comprises 240 credits, which corresponds to four years of full-time study.

    Our ambition is for your doctoral studies to be stimulating and purposeful throughout the programme until you have obtained your doctoral degree. A thorough introduction will therefore get you off to a good start and provide a solid foundation on which you can build your studies. As a doctoral student at Örebro University, you will be offered a specially tailored seminar series, covering matters ranging from doctoral programme rules and careers to stress management and networking.

    The place on the programme is linked to a full-time doctoral studentship for the duration of the study programme. More information on doctoral studentships, part-time studies and part-time doctoral studentships can be found in the Regulations Handbook. The initial salary for a doctoral studentship is SEK 28 100 per month.

    The doctoral studentship is a tailored form of employment for students enrolled on a doctoral programme. It guarantees employment for the duration of the doctoral programme (given that the studies progress).

    Entry requirements and selection

    For admission to doctoral studies, applicants are required to meet both general entry requirements and specific entry requirements. In addition, applicants must be considered in other respects to have the ability required to benefit from the programme. For a full account of the entry requirements, refer to the admissions regulations as well as to annex 2 to the general syllabus for computer science.

    Applicants meet the specific entry requirements for doctoral studies in computer science if they have been awarded a Degree of Master of Science in Engineering or a one-year Master’s degree from a programme within the subject field or related subjects, or if they have received a passing grade of at least 120 credits, including an independent project on the second cycle, in a main field of study of relevance to the computer science field. A person who has acquired substantially corresponding knowledge, in Sweden or abroad, also meets the specific entry requirements.

    Information

    For more information about the programme and the doctoral studentship, please contact Prof. Achim J. Lilienthal (achim.lilienthal@oru.se) and Dr. Martin Magnusson (martin.magnusson@oru.se) or Head of Unit Prof. Lars Karlsson +46 19303355 (lars.Karlsson@oru.se).

    It is essential that you have clear and ambitious plans for your future research and are able to develop research proposals and effectively manage subsequent awards.  It is also essential that you are an effective communicator of new and complex ideas, in both verbal and written form, and that you can engage the interest and enthusiasm of the target audience.

    A successful applicant at Lecturer level will have some experience of teaching and, with some guidance, will be able to deliver teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. It is expected that your research is at an appropriate level for your career stage.  At Senior Lecturer level, successful applicants will have a proven research track record and will be able to deliver teaching and assessment with limited guidance. You will also have a record of mentoring and developing staff, including successful supervision of PhD students to completion.
