PhD Position in the Research Group Systems, Data, Simulation & Energy (ONE4ALL)
A PhD position is available at the newly established research group Systems, Data, Simulation & Energy (SYDSEN) at the AIFB Institute. The SYDSEN research group deals with the use of data for providing decision support and enhancing energy efficiency, reliability and other performance metrics of cyber-physical systems, such as energy systems or smart manufacturing systems. In particular, our focus is on the development of new methods and approaches for data-driven modeling and simulation and its seamless integration with expert knowledge.
The research will be linked to the project ONE4ALL (Horizon Europe 2022), which aims to boost manufacturing plants’ transformation, especially SMEs, towards industry 5.0 (I5.0), reinforcing their resilience under unexpected changes in social needs. This will be done through a human-and-sustainability-centred development of plug-and-produce reconfigurable cyber-physical production modules (RCPMs). Those will consist of self-reconfigurable mobile collaborative robots embedded with IIOT devices for real-time monitorisation and interconnectivity. Our part in this project is the digital replication of the physical modules and processes through data-driven digital twins and controlled by a self-learning AI-based distributed and multidisciplinary decision support system (DSS).
Your activities will include research related to the noted project, mainly focusing on data-driven digital twins. In addition to the research work, you will be also active in coordination and teaching of courses that are offered by the research group, and you will be involved in science administration.
- A master degree in computer science, software engineering, data science or similar,
- Strong interest in working with data-driven approaches,
- Interest in working with formal methods, and modeling and simulation,
- Strong ambition towards excellence in science and technology at the highest international level is expected,
- Good knowledge of German or the willingness to learn it,
- Good command of English.
The remuneration occurs on the basis of the wage agreement of the civil service in EG-13, depending on the fulfillment of professional and personal requirements.
