Phd Scholarship 
Kjeller 
Description:

The position is at the department of Computational Materials Processing at IFE and in collaboration with the University of Oslo (UiO). The topic of the work will be within the field of Reduced Order Modelling (ROM) for creating digital twins of industrial processes.

The department of Computational Materials Processing (MatPro) conducts research and development on industrial processes, reactors and devices based on mathematical modelling of the underlying physical and natural phenomena. Numerical methods, especially the Finite Element Method, are important tools employed by the department. The department has more than 30 years of experience with the Finite Element Method and we have developed our own mathematical models in various projects with national and international industries. Our tools are used worldwide.

The University of Oslo is Norway’s oldest and highest rated institution of research and education with 28 000 students and 7000 employees. Its broad range of academic disciplines and internationally esteemed research communities make UiO an important contributor to society. The group “Mechanics” at the Department of Mathematics conducts research in applied, experimental, theoretical and computational mechanics with a focus on fluid mechanics. Of particular relevance to this call is the groups work on the software library FEniCS, a finite element library with an international user and developer base and its reduced order toolbox RBniCS.

Qualifications:
  • MSc in physics, mechanics, materials science, cybernetics, mathematics, numerical methods or equivalent.
  • Good background in numerical modelling and good programming skills
  • Knowledge of data analysis and numerical algorithms for solving particle differential equation (PDE), the finite element method (FEM) in particular, is preferable

The norm for grade requirements is as follows:

  • the average grade point for courses included in the Bachelor’s degree must be C or better in the Norwegian educational system
  • the average grade point for courses included in the Master’s degree must be B or better in the Norwegian educational system
  • the Master’s thesis must have the grade B or better in the Norwegian educational system
  • English requirements for applicants from outside of EU/ EEA countries http://www.mn.uio.no/english/research/phd/application/application.html
Prefered profile:
  • Good communication and presentation skills
  • Teamworking skills
  • Creativity, curiosity, and a drive to find the best solutions

PhD candidate in corrosion modelling 
Kjeller 
Description:
We offer a PhD position in the Corrosion Technology Department. The position is fully funded for 3 years and is part of a joint research project between IFE and the University of Stavanger. The project is funded by the Research Council of Norway and oil and gas companies.
 
You will join a dynamic group focused on applied corrosion science. We are working to assure safe transport of oil, gas and CO2 in pipelines and strive
for better models to predict corrosion rates.
 
You will work in a project to expand knowledge on corrosion occurring top-of-the-line in pipelines transporting unprocessed natural gas. Your contribution will involve carrying out lab experiments, setting the results in context with existing knowledge and developing models to predict corrosion rates. The results of the work are planned to be published in peer-reviewed international scientific journals and presented at international conferences in corrosion and materials science.
Qualifications:
  • Master’s degree or MSc in chemistry, physics, materials science or closely related disciplines
  • Knowledge of corrosion or electrochemistry 
  • Experience with characterisation of materials is a plus
  • Experience with tools for modelling chemical and physical processes is a plus
Prefered profile:
We need a motivated person who has excellent problem-solving skills and who will be an active participant and collaborator in our group. You will have the chance to gain knowledge and skills that will support and extend the opportunities for us as a research group and for you as a developing scientist. We focus on delivering technology needed by our partners and by society.
