Offer Description

Join our pioneering Department of Analytical Chemistry and Chemometrics, where we transform chemical data into valuable insights for industrial sustainability using the newest hybrid AI. Collaborate on exciting projects with industrial partners, develop new methods, and grow as a data scientist in a diverse and dynamic team. You have a part to play!

As a postdoctoral researcher, you will be involved in two projects. In the first project, you will work together with several colleagues within the department and with other researchers in Environmental Sciences and in Educational Sciences to create interpretable and explainable 'industry 4.0 models' that provide both economic and environmental predictions and that may be adopted by companies. The second project aims to reduce energy consumption in our faculty through development and implementation of AI in energy management. This project revolves around interdisciplinary collaboration among researchers from several domains of natural sciences to together provide value to our own backyard.

Your work includes developing new quantitative methods and disseminating them in papers and presentations. It will involve intensive collaboration with colleagues from academia and industry, so teamwork is a must! You will supervise student internships in the line of your own research and you will also be involved in teaching MSc and BSc students. Your research will require infrequent national travel to industrial partners.

Specific Requirements
  • You have a PhD degree in either Chemometrics or Chemical Engineering or in Data Science/Artificial Intelligence with demonstrable interest in quantitative analysis of physical/chemical data.
  • You have experience in or affinity with analysing industrial process data.
  • You have experience with programming in MATLAB/R/Python or similar.
