Doktorand i fysik/PhD position in physics


Welcome to Linnaeus University! A place for knowledge, ideas and development. For growth potential and a belief in the future. In Småland and in the world.Research focus

Problems in electromagnetics and signal analysis originating from power engineering.


The PhD position is situated at Linnaeus University, Department of Physics and Electrical Engineering, Växjö.

Research environment

The research group carries out research in waves and signals, a mutlidisciplinary collaboration between the areas of applied mathematics, mathematical physics and signal processing. The research focuses on electromagnetic problems relating to direct and inverse problems in science and engineering. Typical application areas are within industry and medicin such as microwave tomography, imaging, parameter estimation, detection and surveillance. The research team collaborates closely with several other research teams in Sweden, and have many international contacts.

The PhD project

The PhD position is a prestige position as part of a large grant from the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF) in a collaboration between Lund University, Stockholm University, the Royal Institute of Technology and the Linnaeus University. The project and the groups also have a close connection with Swedish industry. The overall SSF-project will have four PhD students in the subject area of "complex analysis and convex optimization for EM design", and it runs over a period of five years. There are hence very good possibilities of collaboration and exchange between these groups.

The PhD project at the Linnaeus University will be concerned with problems in electromagnetics and signal analysis originating from power engineering. In particular, the problems are relating to direct and/or inverse problems regarding the design and/or surveillance of high-voltage power cables, such as with the minimization of power losses or with fault localization. The research methods include electromagnetic modeling, numerical methods, optimization and statistical signal processing, and is aiming to increase the mathematical/physical understanding of the related direct and inverse problems, their physical limitations and optimal performance. The research will be carried out in close collaboration between the academic partners and industry, and in particular with ABB High Voltage Cables AB.
