Lulea University


October 15, 2021


Luleå University of Technology experiences rapid growth with world-class expertise within several research domains. We shape the future through innovative education and ground-breaking research results. Drawing on our location in the Arctic region, we create global societal benefit. Our research is carried out in close collaboration with companies such as LKAB, Ericsson, Boliden, ABB and Epiroc and with leading universities around the world. Luleå University of Technology has an annual turnover of SEK 1.8 billion. We are today 1,770 members of staff and have 17,200 students.

In the coming years, investments amounting to many billions will be made in large projects in the regions of Norrbotten and Västerbotten in Northern Sweden. Luleå University of Technology is involved in several of these cutting-edge research projects and offers a broad range of courses and study programmes to match the skills in demand.

Electric Power Engineering in Skellefteå, Sweden, is a successful group at Luleå University of Technology led by Professor Math Bollen and Associate Professor Sarah Rönnberg.

The current research areas for the group are power quality in low, medium and high-voltage networks, integration of renewable electricity production and electric vehicle charging, smart grids and electricity markets. The group has a good national and international reputation for its leading research, is a world leader in power quality, and has a good national reputation for its undergraduate education in electrical networks. The group's research results have received, over the years, attention from both industry and academia.

Electric Power Engineering currently consists of 3 professors, 2 additional senior researchers, 2 research engineers and 19 doctoral students. The group consists of 16 men and 10 women.

Subject description Electric power engineering covers studies of sustainable systems for production of electrical energy, transport of electrical energy and the interaction between the power grid, electricity production and electricity consumption.

Project description We are recruiting a postdoctoral researcher on a project aimed at developing a measurement method for radiated emission in the frequency range below 150 kHz. This includes data analysis (including analysis of large amounts of data) and performance indicators for emission related to railway operation. The project is directed towards radiated emission from railway traction and it will be in collaboration with the Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket).

The postdoctoral researcher will collaborate with a postdoctoral researcher in a parallel project studying radiated emission from large charging installations.

Duties Your primary duties as a postdoctoral researcher are to perform research and education to prepare for future positions within the academy. The main part of your duties will be research-related, but teaching and other non- research duties may be part of your duties as well.

Qualifications The qualifying background for applicants is a doctoral degree in Electric Power Engineering or equivalent. Priority is given to candidates who have completed a doctoral degree within three years before the application date. You must be able to express yourself in English, at advanced level, in writing and orally.

You must have scientific knowledge that is relevant to the project. We are looking for a person with knowledge on radiated and conductive disturbances; measurement techniques for radiated emission in general and below 150 kHz in particular; analysis of large amount of measurement data; and/or knowledge of railway traction. People with other knowledge, skills and/or experience relevant to the project will also be considered for the position.

Further information The employment period for this position is two years with placement in Skellefteå, Sweden.

For further information about the position, please contact Math Bollen, or Sarah Rönnberg,

Union representatives: SACO-S Kjell Johansson, (+46)920-49 1529, OFR-S Lars Frisk, (+46)920-49 1792
