LIST website - Job offers https://www.list.lu/ Latest job offers from Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology website. Student internship in collaborative crowd technologies (M/F) Crowd computing is a research field at the intersection of crowdsourcing, social behavior modeling and computational systems, and in parallel a rising multi-billion industry. From the mass volunteer participation in Wikipedia or OpenIDEO, to the numerous paid crowd workers of Amazon Mechanical Turk, crowd computing is harnessing the power of people to perform tasks that are difficult for individual users or computers to do alone, and is transforming the way that we produce knowledge services. One of the latest trends in crowd computing is the creation of crowd teams to work on knowledge-intensive tasks that require collaboration and cannot be addressed by independent individuals, such as product design, idea filtering, knowledge synthesis, and innovation production. Despite the potential of collaborative crowd technologies to constitute the “next frontier in crowd computing”, forming such teams is nothing but easy. Crowd workers are people with different personalities, needs, expertise, skills and availabilities, who have usually never worked together before. The goal of this project is to develop and experiment efficient computational methods to form ad-hoc, elastic crowd teams in a manner that accounts for the particularities and constraints of the involved human workers while guaranteeing a high-quality final result.

The specific objective of this internship is to design and experiment with one or multiple methods for efficient crowd team formation, including the development of the web tools that will support this experimentation. 
The trainee will be responsible of:
  • Getting acquainted with the state-of-the-art in crowd computing, online communities and virtual teams
  • Co-designing a series of experiments on crowd team formation and team building optimization 
  • Developing web-based software that will support the aforementioned experiments
  • Gathering and analyzing the experimental data, participating in the writing of publications

Master student internship in the synthesis of innovative polymer electrolytes for Li batteries (M/F) The lithium battery industry is undergoing rapid expansion, now representing the largest segment of the portable battery industry and dominating the computer, cell phone, and camera power source industry. However, the safety of the present batteries is questionable for the large-scale batteries needed for hybrid electric vehicles. This is caused by several reasons: one of them is the utilization of electrolytes based on organic flammable solvents, while the second refers to the so-called dendrite growth. Over the course of battery charge/discharge cycles, particularly when the battery is cycled at a fast rate, microscopic fibers of lithium, called “dendrites,” sprout from the surface of the lithium electrode and spread across the electrolyte until they reach the other electrode. An electrical current passing through these dendrites can short-circuit the battery, causing it to rapidly overheat and in some instances catch fire. 
In order to solve this problem it is planned to synthesize new polymer electrolytes that will show high ionic conductivity, demonstrate excellent mechanical properties and will serve as a protection layer for the Li anode’s surface. The intern will take part in on-going efforts in this direction, and will be engaged in the design, preparation and optimization of novel polyelectrolytes at the Materials Research & Technology (MRT) department.   

The trainee’s task will be to:
  • Synthesize unique polymers that simultaneously possess high ionic conductivity and excellent film forming ability
  • Investigate structure-properties relationship and optimize polyelectrolyte macromolecule with the aim to gain the desired merits
  • Perform characterization of obtained materials (NMR, IR, GPC, DSC, TGA, impedance, etc.)
  • Assemble half cells and test them in collaboration with partner institutions  
The job opens the opportunity to learn organic synthetic techniques (monomers synthesis), basic polymer modification principles, specific knowledge on polyelectrolytes preparation, skills on materials characterization via modern methods and state of the art experience in electrochemical devices.

Bachelor or master student internship in Big Data technologies for Remote Sensing Data exploitation (M/F) The intern will be integrated in the e-Science unit, which focuses on data analytics & visualisation and their application to environmental and biological sciences.
There are more and more sensors that collect data about our environment. Remotely sensed imagery is one of the most promising, very fast growing sources of such data. The Copernicus Sentinels e.g. will soon produce 10TB of open data per day, such as SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) and Optical images of high quality.

This data can be combined with “in-situ” data from airborn devices, and other sources.
The exploitation of this data is a huge challenge. The sheer volume is one of the biggest. Furthermore, a lot of “algorithmic intelligence” is necessary to benefit from the new quality of the raw material that comes more frequently, with higher resolution and from more sources.

ERIN is working on many aspects of the necessary innovation in this fast growing domain. From optimized and new algorithms for image processing up to infrastructure and general data analytical platforms for remote sensing and related data. The necessary “Big Data” software infrastructure is investigated, designed and put in place by ERIN’s E-Science unit.

Master Student Internship in Visual Sequence Mining (M/F) "Environmental Research and Innovation" (ERIN) department of LIST has an opening for an Intern position. The intern will be integrated in the e-Science unit, which focuses on data analytics & visualization and their applications.
Society at all levels is creating massive amounts of data at unprecedented rates. In particular, the share of unstructured data including text, audio and video, has become dominant. The automation of information extraction from large document collections is clearly a necessary step towards letting the user digest and make sense of their content. Traditional text mining approaches adopt a bag-of-words model where the words occurring in documents are taken as features, i.e. documents are considered as sets of words, without any notion of order. In contrast, sequential patterns retain the sequential nature of textual data and can be leveraged efficiently in the context of text classification. One of the most recurrent drawbacks of sequential pattern mining is yet the overwhelming number of resulting patterns.

During this internship, the successful candidate will investigate the use of state-of-the-art interactive data visualizations to carry out post-hoc analyses of sequential pattern mining results. The implemented system will allow the user to see, in situ, which documents match the patterns. The system will be evaluated against state-of-the-art competitors in the topic modelling field. In particular, the intern is expected to interact with LIST researchers specialized in plant cell wall biology in order to develop a tool supporting their literature review work. ]]>

Master student Internship in forest hydrology (M/F) Context of intervention

The successful candidate will join the “Environmental Research and Innovation” (ERIN) department. With a team of more than 170 scientists and engineers from life science, environmental science, and IT science, the department has the necessary interdisciplinary knowledge and skills to tackle major environmental challenges our society is facing today: climate change mitigation, ecosystem resilience, sustainable energy systems, efficient use of renewable resources, environmental pollution prevention and control.

Background and mission of the internship

The hydrological processes play a crucial role in the sustainable management of the forest ecosystems. As an example, they control the availability and exchange of nutrients at the interface between the regolith and the vegetation. Identification of water flow paths and quantification of water fluxes within the regolith is essential to understand the potential loss of nutrients to the rivers.

The objective of this internship is to quantify the nutrients and related trace element export to the groundwater and streamwater in a forest ecosystem. The selected candidate will combine the models NUTSFOR (to estimate transpiration fluxes) and HYDRUS-1D (to estimate drainage fluxes in the regolith profile) in order to better constraint the water exchanges between the regolith and the vegetation. She/he could rely on five years of intense hydrological (rainfall, throughfall, soil moisture and temperature, groundwater level, stream discharge) and chemical (nutrient and trace element concentrations) monitoring performed on a forest experimental site in Luxembourg.

Moreover, the selected candidate will be involved in the development of new field experiments for monitoring vegetation activity in forests (sap flow sensors + dendrometers). ]]>

Master student internship in Remote sensing (Reduction of predictive uncertainty in hydrological modelling using satellite soil moisture observation) “Environmental Research and Innovation” (ERIN) department. With a team of more than 170 scientists and engineers from life science, environmental science, and IT science, the department has the necessary interdisciplinary knowledge and skills to tackle major environmental challenges our society is facing today: climate change mitigation, ecosystem resilience, sustainable energy systems and efficient use of renewable resources, environmental pollution prevention and control.
The successful candidate will join the "Remote sensing and eco-hydrological modelling" group. The collaboration between remote sensing scientists and hydraulic modellers is targeting the extraction of hydrology-related information from satellite Earth Observation (EO) data as well as the reduction of numerical modelling-based hydrological predictions.
Motivated by climate change and its impact on the scarcity or excess of water in many parts of the world, several agencies and research institutions have taken initiatives in monitoring and predicting the hydrologic cycle at global scale. Such a monitoring/prediction effort is important for understanding the vulnerability to extreme hydrological events and providing early warnings. This can be based on a combination of hydro-meteorological models and remote sensing, in which satellite data can be used as forcing data, as calibration datasets or for regularly updating the model states. Many advances have been made in these domains and the near future will bring new opportunities with respect to remote sensing as a result of the increasing number of satellites suitable for monitoring water resources.

In the context of the internship, the main objective will be to investigate to what extent innovative techniques that allow for the estimation of soil moisture from satellite can help in reducing errors and uncertainties in hydro-meteorological modelling.

A conceptual hydrologic model requiring limited computational efforts will be used, thereby enabling early warnings for large areas. Such a model is generally calibrated using only discharge measurements. During his/her internship the candidate will set up a multi-objective calibration procedure based on both discharge measurements and satellite soil moisture observations in order to evaluate the added value of remotely sensed soil moisture data in the calibration process.

As a follow up of the internship, there is potentially an opportunity for the successful candidate to receive funding for a PhD grant in the same area of research.

The candidate will likely use the Murrumbidgee basin in Australia as a test case. ]]>

Master student internship in Flood mapping algorithm using optical and SAR data “Environmental Research and Innovation” (ERIN) department. With a team of more than 170 scientists and engineers from life science, environmental science, and IT science, the department has the necessary interdisciplinary knowledge and skills to tackle major environmental challenges our society is facing today: climate change mitigation, ecosystem resilience, sustainable energy systems and efficient use of renewable resources, environmental pollution prevention and control. The successful candidate will join the "Remote sensing and eco-hydrological modelling" group. The collaboration between remote sensing scientists and hydraulic modellers is targeting the extraction of hydrology-related information from satellite Earth Observation (EO) data as well as the reduction of numerical modelling-based hydrological predictions.
Frequently updated flood extent maps represent crucial information in the framework of disaster risk reduction and flood risk mitigation. However such maps cannot be obtained from field surveys alone.

In this general context, spaceborne Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) sensors such as the ones on board Sentinel-1 and COSMO-Skymed represent an important source of globally consistent and coherent information due to the microwave radiation’s sensitivity to the presence of surface water. Moreover, they provide synoptic views and are capable of quasi all-weather day/night observations. In SAR images, a high contrast between flooded and non-flooded terrain is due to the fact that smooth water surfaces reflect the incident radar signal in the specular direction.

Optical images such as Sentinel-2 and Landsat, can be used as well. Efficient methods for mapping flood extent using optical images rely on the possibility to distinguish water and non-water areas based on reflectance characteristics at different bands. Identification of water bodies can be conducted using indexes extracted from multispectral images, such as Normalized Difference Water Index.
 
The remote sensing scientists and hydraulic engineers at LIST have recently developed an automatic flood mapping algorithm based on SAR images. In the framework of the proposed internship we aim to continue developing the algorithm with the objective to increase its performances, especially in urban areas. To this aim, it is planned to include optical imagery in the processing chain in order to increase the classification accuracy.

As a member of the team the candidate will further contribute to the ongoing effort to create a collection of flood extent maps at global scale. ]]>

Master student internship in Evapotranspiration Partitioning Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) covers the domains of materials, environment and IT. As a Research and Technology Organisation and with its interdisciplinary impact-driven approach, LIST contributes to the development of Luxembourg’s economy and society. The successful candidate will join the “Environmental Research and Innovation” department. With a team of more than 170 scientists and engineers from life science, environmental science, and IT science, the department has the necessary interdisciplinary knowledge and skills to tackle major environmental challenges our society is facing today: climate change mitigation, ecosystem resilience, sustainable energy systems, efficient use of renewable resources, environmental pollution prevention and control.
One of the major uncertainties in catchment or regional water budget originates due to dubious measurements or modeling of transpiration (ET) components of evapotranspiration (E). Theoretical approaches and measurements from multiples disciplines revealed the occurrence of complex feedback between ET, soil moisture, and biophysical state variables that modulate the soil, vegetation and atmosphere interactions. These feedbacks are nonlinear and put limitations to directly model ET by using the land surface parameterisations.

However, partitioning of E into its component fluxes in physically-based analytical modeling framework could be advantageous due its capacity to overcome the uncertainties in empirical parameterizations that are generally used to specify some of the internal states governing transpiration. Such modeling efforts need rigorous investigations before being used for large scale applications.

The proposed research will extensively test and evaluate the E partitioning framework of a physically-based E model (STIC1.2: Surface Temperature Initiated Closure, version 1.2) over a breadth of hydrologically heterogeneous landscapes and also across aridity gradients of Australia, North America and Africa in order to accurately characterize transpiration in a variety of natural ecosystems. This involves, (1) combining thermal remote sensing with Penman-Monteith and Shuttleworth-Wallace model to partition E and estimating evaporation (EE) and transpiration, (2) testing and evaluating the STIC1.2 E partitioning scheme using both tower as well as satellite-based land surface temperature, radiative and meteorological forcings, and (3) quantify uncertainty in ET estimates due to data and modeling uncertainties. ]]>

Master student internship in Remote Sensing (Creating water depth maps using satellite Earth Observation data) “Environmental Research and Innovation” (ERIN) department. With a team of more than 170 scientists and engineers from life science, environmental science, and IT science, the department has the necessary interdisciplinary knowledge and skills to tackle major environmental challenges our society is facing today: climate change mitigation, ecosystem resilience, sustainable energy systems, efficient use of renewable resources, environmental pollution prevention and control. The successful candidate will integrate the “Remote sensing and eco-hydrological modelling” group.

The collaboration between the teams’s remote sensing scientists and hydraulic modellers is targeting the extraction of hydrology-related information from satellite Earth Observation (EO) data as well as the reduction of numerical modelling-based hydrological predictions.
Enhanced methods for monitoring temporal and spatial variations of water depth in rivers and floodplains are very important in operational water management. Currently, variations of water elevation can be estimated indirectly at the land-water interface using sequences of satellite EO imagery in combination with topographic data.

In recent years high-resolution digital elevation models (DEM) and satellite EO data have become more readily available at global scale. The successful applicant will join our internationally leading team working on developing a recently introduced approach for efficiently converting remote sensing-derived flood extent maps into water depth maps using a floodplain’s topography information.
These developments should enable large scale and near real-time applications and only require readily available EO data, a DEM and the river network as input data. The ongoing research targets the implementation of a hierarchical split-based approach that subdivides a drainage network into segments of variable length with evidence of uniform flow.

Further testing should evaluate the impact of the resolution and accuracy of the EO data and the DEM on the results. For this reason different DEM data sets, including the recently published high resolution high precision TanDEM-X data set, will be considered in the processing chain. Moreover, different satellite EO data sets, such as Sentinel-1, TerraSAR-X and Envisat ASAR will be used and results inter-compared.

A comprehensive evaluation of the obtained water depth maps with hydrodynamic modelling results and in situ measured water level recordings will be carried out on a number of test sites in the United Kingdom and Mozambique. ]]>

The successful candidate will be affiliated to the RDI Unit on Water Safety and Security (WSS). World-wide, water resources are increasingly put under pressure by climate and land use change as well as anthropogenic pollution. We strive to:
  • Better understand how catchments store and release water and pollutants, using new generations of environmental tracers and remote sensing methods
  • Develop innovative technological solutions and new real-time prediction tools for keeping our water resources safe and secure
  • Develop knowledge and transferable (software) technologies and practical methods for sustainable urban waste water management

Background

The sludge management in Waste Water Treatment Plants (WWTPs) is a cost-intensive operation. It can consume 20% to 60% of the total operating costs. The sludge management is handled through different stabilization technologies, such as aerobic digestion, anaerobic digestion, chemical stabilization, thermal stabilization (incineration). The management of such technological solutions requires the control of operational parameters (temperature, chemical additive, digestion time, ...). Often, in WWTPs, a SCADA system collects a huge set of information in real time. In order to achieve optimal control solutions, the decision makers need a tool/methodology to detect inefficiencies to decide for more optimal solutions.


Internship objectives

The goal of this M.Sc. project is to develop a data-driven decision making approach for the management and control of the sludge stabilization process in WWTPs. In his/her work, the student will review the literature to identify the most important operational parameters and evaluate the performance of the process. The student will develop a methodology based on a virtual environment and will test the approach on a data of real WWTPs.
The work will be developed by the candidate according to this working plan:

1)    Define preliminary Thesis structure (Problem statement, objectives, expected outcomes)
2)    Literature review of important KPIs and sensors
3)    Set up a simulated WWTP using available software (for example Matlab Simulink, Simba, STOAT )
4)    Develop a method/approach to compute and analyse KPIs of simulated WWTP
5)    Test method/approach for KPIs on data base of an existing WWTP
6)    Write thesis

Master Student Internship in Advanced Materials(M/F) Context of intervention

The electrocaloric (EC) effect is a variation of temperature appearing in some highly polarisable materials when one applies an external electric field. This temperature change is reversible. In the context of finding new solutions for cooling applications, this EC effect could play an important in the near future as 1) its cooling power could be very efficient and 2) there is no need for using greenhouse effect refrigerant gases. However, this solid state effect needs a lot of investigations before being assessed properly.
Trainee mission Title: Heat pump based on the electrocaloric effect

In this study, we propose to develop a heat pump prototype based on EC materials. We have already selected optimized materials exhibiting large EC heat variations. These materials have to be shaped and arranged in order to exhibit large heat exchange with a dielectric fluid carrying heat in the pump prototype. Heat exchange, energy efficiency and large temperature variation are keywords in this internship. Temperature change and electrical characteristics of the used EC elements will also be determined in this study. LIST is well equipped in terms of specific characterizations – dielectric set-ups, IR camera, DSC – and owns a large and state-of-the-art platform dedicated to structural and chemical characterizations.
