As a PhD candidate you will work on a project within the department of Analytical Chemistry. The PhD project is conducted together with Teijin, and aims at developing measurements and sensors of professionals in high-risk environments (Fire Department, Police) to measure, assess and manage their safety in real-time during operations, and on a higher level throughout their career. This requires implementation of smart sensors on their professional equipment and local measurements of the worker’s health and their environment. The project will primarily involve the development of advanced data analysis methods, to be embedded in new robust analysis technology solutions. The candidate will closely interact with the researchers, companies and professionals involved in the project. We expect a strongly result-oriented attitude from the candidate to provide increased safety to high-risk professionals, together with a well-developed academic curiosity to bring analytical technology to the next level.
