What will the energy mix look like after the phasing out of nuclear power and coal, and the expansion of renewable energies? Which technologies will have to be introduced or further developed? What consequences will result from the change in transportation? What could a climate-neutral energy supply look like that makes economic sense and at the same time offers sufficient security of supply?In order to be able to answer these and other questions scientifically, numerous models are being developed at the Institute of Energy and Climate Research - Techno-economic Systems Analysis (IEK-3), in the research field of energy system analysis, with which energy systems can be represented and examined. Energy system analysis faces the challenge that a large number of complex models have been developed in the past, which are very heterogeneous in their objectives, methods and level of detail. It is therefore becoming increasingly difficult to identify the models best suited to answer a specific research ques-tion and to understand their respective differences and specificities.</p> <p><strong>Your Job:</strong></p><p>First, you will design a semantic framework for the description and categorization of energy system models and their underlying methods.

In order to support the selection of a workflow, you will develop technical and content-related comparison criteria as well as methods for their measurement.

The Department for Space Weather Impact focuses on the investigation and mitigation of socioeconomically adverse space weather effects. These include the impairment of critical technical infrastructures such as high-frequency communication and GNSS-based navigation.&nbsp;Pulsating aurora (PsA) vividly express a particular mode of space weather at which resonant wave-particle interaction in the equatorial magnetosphere causes energetic electron precipitation into the polar ionosphere (see image). This precipitation affects not only technical systems but potentially also our climate through the destruction of mesospheric ozone. The investigation of PsA hence receives considerable international attention which is further fueled by advancements in camera technology as well as in ground-based and spaceborne plasma observations.&nbsp;The proposed PhD project aims to advance our understanding of the physical systematics associated with PsA based on a novel combination of observations from the northern Fenno-Scandinavian sector. The main efforts will be directed towards (1) the identification of the relation between the optics (e.g., shape, velocity, pulse freqeuncy) and the F-region ionospheric plasma signatures, and (2) the interpretation of the results under consideration of the relevant magnetospheric processes, i.e., the scattering and precipitation of plasma sheet electrons.&nbsp;&nbsp;Your work load of 19.25 hours per week is compensated according to 75% of German TVöD group 13.

Accordingly, it can be assumed that diseases can spread to different degrees in areas with different air quality. In Germany, too, the air quality is neither spatially nor temporally constant, but varies greatly depending on emissions and meteorology. Against the background of the Covid-19 pandemic, these relationships are of great interest. Initial publications suggest that the spread of Covid-19 infections is facilitated by fine dust.</p><p>As part of a DFG project, the relationship between air quality and infections with influenza or COVID-19 is being investigated on the basis of health data from Baden-Württemberg. The statistical analysis of these disease data in connection with historical air quality data form the basis for the position advertised here. The aim is to investigate the influence of fine dust on influenza and Covid-19 infections, as well as the possible influences of other stressors such as nitric oxide, sulfur dioxide and temperature. For this purpose, suitable statistical models should be selected and adapted to the available data. The results will then be used within the DFG project, among other things, to adapt dispersion models to the available data.</p><p>The DLR offers doctoral students comprehensive and interdisciplinary training in various areas. The scientific training takes place in cooperation with various universities in a dynamic and excellent scientific environment at the most modern facilities and within the framework of pioneering, innovative projects. Postgraduate students will learn how to develop integrated concepts to explore health issues in aviation and manned spaceflight, as well as related disease patterns on Earth. In addition, the conditions for life in extreme environments are researched in order to better understand the earth's ecosystem and to enable the search for life on other planets in manned and unmanned missions.</p><p><strong>Your tasks:</strong><br/><br/>Your task as a doctoral candidate in the project will be the statistical analysis of the available environmental and disease data. The focus is on Covid-19 and influenza. In particular, a comparison of these two infections is of interest in order to be able to draw possible conclusions for future pandemics.</p><p><strong>Our offer:</strong></p><ul class="list"><p class="bodytext"> <li>a doctoral position according to TVöD (E13 / 2)</li> <li>a state-of-the-art research environment</li> <li>effective support from a team consisting of two supervisors and a mentor</li> <li>an interdisciplinary training program</li> <li>Cologne - a lively city with a rich cultural life, successful scientific centers of innovation and a dynamic corporate world</li></p></ul><p class="bodytext"><strong>Please send us:</strong></p><ul class="list"><p class="bodytext"> <li>motivation letter</li> <li>curriculum vitae with certificates</li></p></ul><p><i>This research center is part of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers.

Increasingly, this need is being addressed by data-driven models due to their inherent flexibility. However, data-driven models are usually trained based on uniform prediction accuracy. Models trained in such fashion do not necessarily match the requirements for a specific deployment imposed by an expert modeler. The scope of this project is to develop a method for training neural network-based dynamic reduced-order models in an integrated framework that allows (i) automated consideration of system requirements in the model training and (ii) optimal representation of the models for use in numerical methods.Your tasks in detail</p><ul class="list"><p class="bodytext"><li> Develop a framework for data-driven dynamic reduced-order modeling of energy systems</li><li> Extend the framework to account for training criteria based on systems knowledge about the target applications of the reduced-order models</li><li> Integrate the framework into our in-house energy systems optimization environment COMANDO</li><li> Apply the new methodology and models to challenging design and operations problems</li></p></ul><p class="bodytext"><strong>Your Profile:</strong></p><ul class="list"><p class="bodytext"><li> High interest to apply your data science knowledge to energy science</li><li> Excellent Master`s degree in energy/process systems engineering, computational engineering science, simulation science, or a relevant discipline</li><li> Expert knowledge of at least one programming language (preferably Python)</li><li> Expertise in modeling, simulation and (applied) machine learning</li><li> Excellent skills in spoken and written English (TOEFL or equivalent evidence)</li><li> Excellent organizational skills and the ability to work independently</li><li> Excellent cooperation and communication skills and ability to work as part of a team</li><li> High level of scholarship as indicated by bachelor and master study transcripts and two reference letters</li></p></ul><p class="bodytext"></p> <p><strong>Our Offer:</strong></p><p>This HDS-LEE PhD position will be located at IEK-10, Forschungszentrum Jülich.

The Institute for the Protection of Maritime Infrastructures focuses on this challenge and develops new concepts, approaches and technologies that may be used to analyse and enhance the safety and security of maritime infrastructures regarding people, technologies and systems.<br/><br/>One focus of the Department of Maritime Security Technologies is anomaly detection by means of machine learning to analyse data resulting from maritime focused detector systems. Developed algorithms are used to identify rare events in data from tomographic scanning systems as well as in the analysis of time series from various optical and acoustic sensor systems. The aim of this work is to improve the overall level of safety and security within a maritime infrastructure through the identification of events and patterns which might not be directly detectable by eye, but which may indicate a threat or illegal activity.<br/><br/>This position involves the development of algorithms for the detection of rare anomalies in density distribution resulting from tomographic reconstruction of data from a prototype container scanner based on muon tomography. The technology is expected to enable fully automated threat detection and support decision making without the need to offload cargo, whilst the passive nature of the radiation makes the technology harmless for use in the presence of humans. Anomalies in data may be the result of hazardous or contraband items hidden among similarly dense materials within a shipping container. In parallel, the extent to which these methods can be transferred to other maritime detector systems (e.g. optical or hydroacoustic systems providing continuous monitoring of regions of interest) will be investigated and if possible implemented and evaluated in that context. The option to perform a PhD study in the context of this work can be supported.<br/>Your tasks will include:</p><ul class="list"><p class="bodytext"> <li>development, implementation, optimisation and comparison of suitable algorithms for anomaly detection and rare event identification</li> <li>profiling of developed algorithms to determine and optimise the computational power and execution time per data frame</li> <li>testing and validation of implemented algorithms; comparison of predictions of developed algorithms on data known to contain anomalies and data free of anomalies</li> <li>integration and testing of positively evaluated algorithms into the final analysis chains of existing instruments and systems</li></p></ul><p><i>This research center is part of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers.

Typically, stationary sensor networks are used for such tasks. However, stationary sensor networks offer little flexibility in capturing highly dynamic nature of the gases being monitored.<br/>&nbsp;<br/>The research group Swarm Exploration at the Institute of Communications and Navigation&nbsp; investigates use of multiple cooperating robotic platforms - or swarms - to explore such processes. Specifically, we propose to use so-called in-situ as well as remote gas sensors to capture spatial gas concentration with using mobile robots.<br/><br/>The goal of this research is to</p><ul class="list"><p class="bodytext"> <li>develop efficient exploration algorithms based on the measurements of all agents in the swarm, appropriate communication and navigation tools, as well as sensing technology, and</li> <li>experimentally validate the developed algorithms.</li></p></ul><p class="bodytext">The exploration algorithms should be based on information-theoretic considerations and use estimation techniques that are also widely used in communications engineering. The multi-agent system consists of flying and ground-based robots. Multiple robots are needed to handle the high spatial dynamics of the gas dispersion process. To support robot deployment and decision making, gas dispersion is represented with a physical model of gas concentration dynamics. This model also permits probabilistic formulation, so that the probabilistic distributions of the model parameters – be it locations of the gas sources or the spatial gas concentration map - can be inferred numerically from the measured values. In this context, the probabilistic approach to model representation plays an important role: it allows to compensate for unavoidable model mismatches and serves as a basis for the intelligent behavior of the multi-agent system.</p><p>The developed algorithms should exploit a decentralized architecture and generate optimal measurement positions in real time by using distributed computing and communication resources on the robots. The methods should first be developed and tested using numerical simulations and later validated on robot platforms under realistic operations.</p><ul class="list"><p class="bodytext"> <li>Literature research in the field of autonomous swarm exploration, signal processing via networks and robotics, processing and evaluation of the state-of-the-art methods</li> <li>Development of theoretically optimal procedures for autonomous swarm exploration of gases as well as procedures based, among others, on artificial intelligence methods and their combination with model-based approaches.</li> <li>Theoretical and numerical analysis of the developed procedures</li> <li>Comparison and analysis of the performance of newly developed methods with that of the already known approaches by means of KPIs (key performance indicators) such as speed of exploration and energy consumption of the swarm elements</li> <li>Validation of the developed swarm exploration procedures in experiments</li> <li>Adaptation of the developed procedures to computing modules used on experimental platforms</li> <li>Integration of the algorithms on experimental platforms</li> <li>Design, preparation and execution of experiments in indoor and outdoor environments with rovers and flying platforms</li> <li>Evaluation of the results obtained in the experiments based on KPIs.

Within the DESY theory group on “Theory of Ultrafast X-Ray Science” we are developing novel X-ray spectroscopic and imaging techniques to unravel the electronic valence structure of solids. Within a combined experimental &amp; theoretical effort we are currently investigating parametric nonlinear X-ray processes such as X-ray optical sum/difference frequency generation and X-ray parametric down conversion. These nonlinear processes promise to combine the spatial resolution of regular X-ray diffraction with spectroscopic selectivity, suitable to probe valence properties. Besides imprints of single-particle excitations within the band-structure, the method should allow characterization of collective excitations (plasmons) on atomistic scale. Recently, we have developed a theoretical framework based on non-relativistic quantum electrodynamics for describing X-ray optical wave mixing [1,2]. Currently, the underlying electronic quantities are based on density functional theory (DFT) calculations. The heart of this project lies in the improvement of the electronic structure calculations, by successive inclusion of correlation effects. Starting from different flavours of Kohn-Sham DFT and calculation of the electronic nonlinear response functions (density – current density correlation functions) the successful candidate will successively improve on the description of correlation effects, by application of (linear response) time-dependent DFT, random phase approximation and adiabatic-connection fluctuation-dissipation DFT and will explore the applicability of other methods, such as time-dependent current density functional theory. The theoretical results will directly tie in with the experimental activities of the group and external collaborators.[1] C. Boemer, D. Krebs, A. Benediktovitch, E. Rossi, S. Huotari &amp; N.

The project represents a strong and close cooperation with the department Biological Barriers and Drug Delivery (Prof. Dr. Claus-Michael Lehr) at the Helmholtz Institute for Pharmaceutical Research Saarland (HIPS) in Saarbrücken.</p><p>Thus, the successful candidate will have the challenging task to work at the interphase of nanocarrier design and immunology to develop new mRNA-based vaccination strategies. The candidate will design and perform immunisation studies using the murine model, isolate primary cells to be tested in different immunological assays and analyse the stimulated humoral and cellular immune responses. The respective assays comprise ELISA, hemagglutination inhibition (HAI) and enzyme-linked lectin (ELLA) assays, microneutralisation, ELISPOT and FACS analysis. The candidate will also travel to our collaboration partners (national) to exchange and share techniques and reagents.</p>Prerequisite:<p><strong>Qualifications:</strong></p><p>•&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Master’s Degree or equivalent in biology, or a related field within the life sciences</p><p>•&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Excellent English communication skills (written and spoken)</p><p>•&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Ability to work independently and as part of an international team</p><p>•&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Experience on immunological assays and tissue culture</p><p>•&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; A strong interest in immunology and vaccinology as well as some experience with flow cytometry and/or fluorescence microscopy are highly beneficial</p><p>•&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The project demands a well-structured and communicative working style</p><p>Disabled persons are given preference in the case of equal professional qualification.

Many interesting and open problems in these areas need to be addressed to successfully deploy such systems in modern application domains. As an example, the most urgent questions about cooperative distributed machine learning are highlighted in the following.</p><p>The number of devices that interact with the real world (semi-)autonomously increases strongly, not least because of the rise of the IoT. Machine learning techniques are more and more commonly used to guide these interactions. Thereby, every device collects experiences at run-time that shall be used to continuously train the employed machine learning models. Learning is performed distributedly on every device where the experiences are collected. However, realizing devices in large quantities requires low cost, low electrical power, and low energy, leading to resource-constrained devices that cannot perform exhaustive training of complex models. The research question addressed in this project is: How can a system with resource-constrained devices learn in a cooperative and distributed manner? One aspect of this question is how to cope with the resource constraints. Should training still be performed locally by reducing the computational complexity of the training, or should parts of the training process be offloaded to other devices? Developed techniques must be scalable because the number of devices may be large, and may be prone to reliability requirements where central coordination as a single point of failure is not allowed. Additionally, privacy concerns may require that the learning is performed in a way that no device can reverse-engineer information about experiences made on another device, even though all devices cooperatively learn a joint model. Such open research questions for cooperative distributed machine learning shall be investigated and addressed in this research project.</p><p><i>This research center is part of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers.

For example, the range of simulated effective climate sensitivity - the change in global mean surface temperature for a doubling of atmospheric CO2 - has not decreased since the 1970s. A major cause of this is differences in the representation of clouds and other processes occurring at spatial scales smaller than the model grid resolution. These need to be approximated through parametrisations that represent the statistical effect of that process at the grid scale of the model. This impacts the model’s ability to accurately project global and regional climate change, climate variability, extremes and impacts on ecosystems and biogeochemical cycles. High-resolution, cloud resolving models alleviate many biases of coarse-resolution models for deep clouds and convection, wave propagation and precipitation, but they cannot be run at climate timescales for multiple decades or longer due to high computational costs. New approaches are required that exploit opportunities from increasing computational power while building on and expanding the knowledge gained from theory and observations and continuing the inclusion of missing processes in the models.</p><p>While efforts are underway to develop convection resolving high resolution global climate models where some of the physical processes can be explicitly modelled, smaller scale effects will continue to be parameterized in models covering long time periods or in those that require additional complexity beyond the traditional physical model setup.

The position is limited to three years.<br/><br/>GERICS develops science-based prototype products and services in support to government,<br/>administration and business in their efforts to adapt to climate change. It builds up a<br/>national and international network structure in order to integrate existing competences and<br/>knowledge, and to link various actors within the complex area of climate change.<br/><br/>In the Helmholtz research program "Changing Earth - Sustaining our Future" of the Research Field Earth and Environment, seven Helmholtz Centers (AWI, FZJ, GEOMAR, GFZ, Hereon, KIT, UFZ) are collaborating to gather deep insights into the complex relationships between the processes that take place on our planet. They are pooling their competencies to research the natural foundations of life in a systemic approach, from the land surface to the oceans and to the polar regions. For only with sound knowledge of the Earth system, with innovative technologies and strategic approaches and recommendations for politics the path to a sustainable future is possible. Within the framework of this program, the project CASCO is one of four "innovation pool projects". These serve to strengthen the cooperation between the centers, to promote innovative ideas of young scientists, and to provide flexibility in dealing with current, socially relevant themes. <br/><br/>The main goal of the CASCO project is to develop new integrated methods and models for multi-hazard risk assessment of coastal urban areas, subject to extreme geophysical and climatic events. This project is carried out jointly with GFZ, GEOMAR and AWI.

They are pooling their competencies to research the natural foundations of life in a systemic approach, from the land surface to the oceans and to the Polar Regions. For only with sound knowledge of the Earth system, with innovative technologies and strategic approaches and recommendations for politics the path to a sustainable future is possible.<br/><br/> Within the framework of this program, the project “P-LEACH: Impacts on ecosystem functions and human health by environmental plastics and associated chemicals”, is one of four "innovation pool projects". These serve to strengthen the cooperation between the centers, to promote innovative ideas of young scientists, and to provide flexibility in dealing with current, socially relevant themes. <br/><br/> The project P-LEACH which aims to study the effects of chemicals from globally increasing environmental plastic pollution on ecosystem functions and human health, invites applications for <strong>2 positions </strong>as <strong>Post Doc (f/m/d).<br/><br/> Position 1: Analysis of micro- and plastics formed by environmental plastics<br/> (Chemistry)<br/><br/> <strong></strong></strong>Position 2: Physiology and metabolomics of bivalves (Biology) (link)<strong><strong></strong></strong><br/><br/>Background and Tasks<br/>Since the 1950’s the increasing production of plastics resulted in a progressive accumulation of plastic litter in the oceans with manifold consequences for marine life. Plastics impact ecosystems as a new habitat for colonization (“plastisphere”), and weathering leads to fragmentation towards micro and nano sized particles as well as leaching of chemicals, including harmful additives (e.g., plasticizers, bisphenols, metals). Such sized particles and plastic-associated chemicals have frequently been highlighted as (eco)toxicologically important compounds, but have not been adequately addressed. Our multidisciplinary consortium will jointly characterize these pollutants, identify harmful chemicals and investigate their synergistic impacts on ecosystem functions. <br/><br/> Within in the project the emissions of micro-, sub-micro- and nanoplastics from plastic litter from mesocosms simulating different environmental transport pathways and endpoints of large items shall be investigated. Within this scope it shall be determined which sizes and shapes are formed for these various conditions. Moreover, the weathering state of the materials shall be determined and investigated with environmental parameters collected during the mesocosmn experiments.

Typical examples are the production of lime and cement, the phosphate treatment, and several other processes related to the mining sector. Reducing greenhouse gas emission is becoming a critical issue for these industries, leading to a sharp increase in efforts to replace fossil energy sources with renewable ones. One promising option is the utilization of concentrated solar energy for the high temperature particle treatment in a solar reactor, since this can provide the temperatures of up to 1000 °C required in the processes. Such a solar heated rotary kiln was already tested at the DLR in a solar simulator.&nbsp;For the description of the processes, numerical models with varying level of detail are required: detailed and often computationally expensive models for the in-depth analysis of special phenomena on the one hand and fast and efficient models for process analysis on the other hand. The process models can usually be improved by the knowledge gained from the detailed models. Relevant phenomena in the reactors are for example radiative, convective and conductive heat transfer, gas flow and two-phase flows, chemical reactions, sintering of particles and the particle motion. Experimental data have already been obtained at the DLR, providing a good basis for numerical analyses. A key aspect of a directly irradiated rotary kiln is to keep the utilized window at the aperture free of depositions or in case of an operation without a window to avoid the loss of material through controlled gas flows, like an air curtain.&nbsp;The PhD tasks are:</p><ul class="list"><p class="bodytext"> <li>CFD modelling of a solar rotary kiln with a special focus on the gas flow and particle flow. An extension with a DEM model is also an option.</li> <li>optimization of the kiln design for higher efficiency and improved product output</li> <li>development of a solution to operate in a closed system, like a window or air curtain</li> <li>validation of the models with experimental data and performing of additional experiments</li> <li>support in experimental campaigns with an up-scaled solar rotary kiln in the solar simulator Synlight in Jülich</li> <li>application of the models to investigate the reactor design for further application on a solar tower, together with a techno-economic analysis</li></p></ul><p class="bodytext">The PhD candidate will be part of an interdisciplinary and international team of engineers, physicists, chemists and material scientists.

For further information on the project, please see: <a href="http://www.improve-etn.eu/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer">www.improve-etn.eu</a></p><h3><strong>Project description:</strong></h3>The objectives of this project are to deploy a network of several multi-parameter stations around the Krafla geothermal system, in North Iceland (gravity meter, broad-band seismometer, GPS, meteorological station, …) in order to determine subsurface mass and energy transfer from multi-parameter continuous signals; develop a model of mass (fluid) displacement in the hydrothermal reservoirs, so that the relative roles in mass and energy transfer of anthropogenic (injection/extraction) and natural sources can be deciphered. It is expected that the project will be developed in collaboration with other partners from IMPROVE, with exchange of information, data and knowledge. The successful candidate will benefit from the work performed by other ESR projects at Krafla and Etna volcano (Italy) and contribute to their project as well.<h3><strong></strong></h3><h3><strong>Required skills and experience</strong></h3>We welcome applications from candidates who fulfill the following criteria:<ul class="list"><p class="bodytext"><li>A completed research-oriented university degree, such as a Master's degree or BSc Hons, in a Geosciences, Geophysics, Physics, or related disciplines</li><li>Experience in academic or scientific environment</li><li>A good command of English, both verbal and written</li><li>Dedication and enthusiasm for research, combined with scientific curiosity, reliability and the capacity to teamwork in an interdisciplinary environment</li><li>Experience with field work</li><li>Demonstrate numerical modelling experience and ability and commitment to do so</li><li>Strong programming ability (python, matlab, or any advanced language)</li><li>Motivation to work in an interdisciplinary and international team</li><li>Willingness to spend time in the field in Iceland under possibly harsh conditions</li><li>Willingness for research visits of several weeks at partner institutions of IMPROVE</li></p></ul><p class="bodytext"></p><p>Please ensure that you fulfill the following <strong>eligibility criteria</strong> for ESR (Early Stage Researcher) positions in H2020 MSCA-ITNs, as ineligible candidates cannot be considered.</p><p></p><p class="bodytext"><a href="http://www.improve-etn.eu/index.php/2021/06/22/15-early-stage-researcher-positions-available/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer">www.improve-etn.eu/index.php/2021/06/22/15-early-stage-researcher-positions-available/</a></p><p>The position will last for three years, <strong>starting from March 2022.</strong></p><p><strong>Who can apply?</strong> Candidates must meet the following requisites:</p><p>Be of any nationality, but not having resided or carried out their main activity (job, studies, …) in Germany for more than 1 year in the past 3 years.<br/>Be within 4 years from the degree that in their country, or in the country of appointment, gives access to a PhD.<br/>Not having completed a PhD at start of the contract.
