Position description

For this position, research will be conducted within project CPMXai – Cognitive Predictive Maintenance and Quality Assurance using Explainable Ai and Machine Learning.

CPMXai aims to develop a digital twin for cognitive predictive maintenance through automatic data labelling, AI/ML and Explainable AI (XAI) to reduce unwanted situations and enhance maintenance in manufacturing and production processes. CPMXai has 3 objectives i.e., 1) identify use cases in the industries, 2) develop a new automatic data labelling tool with the help of digital twin and lastly, 3) develop a self-monitoring, self-learning, self- explainable system to predict.

CPMXai is a Production 2030 project funded by Vinnova comprises with 8 different partners including 5 industries in Sweden.

The position focus is on computer vision, image processing, advanced data analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and signal processing; as well as data modeling for digital twin and cognitive predictive maintenance. The work requires theoretical studies on the state of art, together with software development and testing. As a PhD student, you are expected to develop independent ideas and to communicate research results in oral and written form. The employment includes collaboration and co-production within the industrials' partners.


Only those who are or have been admitted to third-cycle courses and study programmes at a higher education may be appointed to doctoral studentships. For futher information see Chapter 5 of the Higher Education Ordinance (SFS 1993:100).

The applicant must have a B.SC/M.Sc. or four years of study (240 higher education credits) with at least one year (60 credits) at second-cycle degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Proficiency in English, both written and oral, is required.

Knowledge/experience in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep Learning and knowledge/experience in computer vision and image processing is required.

Extensive programming experience is required, e.g., knowledge of Python, MATLAB, Tensorflow, Keras, Pandas, OpenCV, PHP, and SQL/MySQL.

Knowledge/experience in data analytics using artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep Learning based on signal data e.g. CT images, X-Ray Images, Spiral Drawing signals, IoT LoRa technology and Hybrid CNN-PCA Based Feature Extraction is required.

Decisive importance is attached to personal suitability. We value the qualities that an even distribution of age and gender, as well as ethnic and cultural diversity, can contribute to the organization.


Experience as a research engineer in the area of artificial intelligence.

Experience in Journal Publications e.g. IEEE Access.

Honors, and Awards are considered of merit.
