DESIGNING AQUEOUS DEEP EUTECTIC MIXTURES BY DATA-INTEGRATED SIMULATION

The Cluster of Excellence "Data-Integrated Simulation Science" (EXC 2075) is an interdisciplinary research center with more than 200 scientists performing research towards a common goal: We target a new class of modeling and computational methods based on available data from various sources, in order to take the usability, precision and reliability of simulations to a new level.

THE PROJECT

The goal of the project "Designing aqueous deep eutectic mixtures by data-integrated simulation" is to develop and apply a design strategy for deep eutectic solvents by combining molecular dynamics simulations and machine learning strategies. Deep eutectic solvents (DES) are promising solvents in biocatalysis, because they are designable, renewable, biodegradable, and cheap. Thus, they are considered as an alternative to organic solvents for enzyme-catalyzed reactions that involve hydrophobic substrates. The thermophysical properties of aqueous DES mixtures such as density, melting point, viscosity, substrate solubility, and thermodynamic activity of water can be designed by varying the components, their mole fraction, and the temperature. Thus, a very large design space is available. Molecular dynamics simulations provide an atomistic understanding of thermodynamic and transport properties, which is essential to guide the design of DESs. To reduce the computational expense of screening the design space, a combination of MD simulations with machine learning methods will be applied.

YOUR TASKS

  • Follow best practices in sustainable software development and apply and further develop a scalable workflow environment to perform large-scale simulations on a HPC infrastructure
  • Follow the F.A.I.R. data principles and systematically compare thermophysical properties obtained from simulations to published experimental data by using ThermoML
  • Use the simulation results for machine learning and for improving the force fields of the compounds in the complex mixtures.
  • Design novel deep eutectic solvents and validate the predictions in collaboration with our experimental project partners
  • Contribute to the teaching activities of the host group

WE ARE LOOKING FOR

We seek strong applicants with a Doctorate in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Biotechnology, Physics, or a closely related field ideally with a specific focus on molecular simulation and experience in machine learning techniques. We value diversity and want to specifically encourage applications from underrepresented groups. Successful candidates should be curiosity-driven, ambitious, creative, and passionate about interdisciplinary research in the area of simulation and data sciences. Strong team working and critical thinking skills, aptitude for independent and creative work, as well as fluent English written and presentation skills are essential.

AUTONOMOUS DRIVING AND PASSENGER INJURY RISK: EXPERIMENT AND SIMULATION

The Cluster of Excellence "Data-Integrated Simulation Science" (EXC 2075) is an interdisciplinary research center with more than 200 scientists performing research towards a common goal: We target a new class of modeling and computational methods based on available data from various sources, in order to take the usability, precision and reliability of simulations to a new level.

THE PROJECT

Autonomous driving increases the risk of injury due to changed occupant positions (e.g. rotation of the head and trunk) and the distraction of occupants from the driving situation (e.g. by conference calls). This project aims to enhance the existing human models in driving simulations by implementing realistic head and body rotations. Therefore, experiments (muscle activation via EMG, 3D motion analysis) in a driver-in-the-loop setup (driving simulator) need to be performed to determine model parameters and to validate the human body model. Based on these data, the influence of head rotation on injury risk during accidents will be assessed in silico by human model simulations (digital human twin).

YOUR TASKS

The position offers a diverse collaborative working environment in close cooperation with SimTech researchers at all career levels. In addition, it provides excellent opportunities to enhance the candidate's personal research profile with additional novel topics. In collaboration with other SimTech researchers, you will enhance an existing human model to analyse the influence of head rotation on injury risks during simulated car accidents. A part of the position is dedicated to designing a experimental setup for measuring muscle activity and 3D motion during car accidents in a driving simulator. In particular, this includes data processing and analysis. Based on these data, the finite element human model will be validated.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR

We seek applicants with a Doctorate in computer science, engineering, natural science or related research areas. Preference will be given to candidates with a PhD in fields related to simulation science. Applicants must have a strong proven background in the following areas:

  • Internationally visible research in computational science (e.g. FE modelling), biomechanics; ideally combined with data-driven methodologies such as machine learning
  • Broad skills in the development, maintenance, and use of simulation software (e.g. LS-Dyna)
  • Experience in the use of experimental methods such as electromyography and motion analysis would be an asset.

WE OFFER

If you work with us,

  • you will enter into a team of motivated and supportive colleagues
  • you will work in the dynamic environment of the Cluster of Excellence SimTech and be part of the largest research alliance at the university
  • An inspirational and supportive research environment at the Cluster of Excellence SimTech
