Post-Doc position in Control Systems Research Laboratory

This position offer has expired. Please see the new offer.

We invite applications for one post-doctoral position in application of intelligent control methods. The main objective of this research is to develop an industrial software framework for control engineers. It will serve as an assisting environment that is supposed to significantly simplify implementation of advanced control techniques in the industry.

The project will be focused on the combination of classical control techniques with intelligent control methods and its application to control of complex nonlinear systems. The proposed research aims to:

  • Determine the most suitable (with respect to predefined control criteria) control strategy for particular industrial system by means of (i) experimental data analysis, (ii) analytical and numerical modeling, and (iii) computer based simulation/verification;
  • Software implementation of the chosen intelligent control algorithm;
  • Validate the developed framework on the basis of laboratory prototypes of real industrial plants;
  • Incorporate the developed algorithms into practical applications.

 

Required qualification:

  • PhD in control systems engineering or relevant field;
  • Previous experience in control of industrial processes;
  • Knowledge of MATLAB/Simulink;
  • Knowledge of C/C++ and/or Java programming languages;
  • Familiarity with computational intelligence based methods;
  • Good communication skills in oral and written English.

 

We offer:

  • The appointment will be for a period of 1 year with a possibility to extend for the second year;
  • As an employee of the university, you will receive a competitive salary approximately 2600 EUR Gross Salary (2000 EUR Net Salary) per month;
  • Access to a variety of research equipment available in our laboratory.

 

The application should consist of:

  • A motivation letter stating why the proposed research topic interests you;
  • A complete CV with a full publication list;
  • Contact details of at least two reference persons.

These documents must be compiled into a single PDF file and sent to a-lab@ttu.ee with a subject “Post-Doc application of <Name> <Surname>”.

 

The deadline of the application is April 15, 2015.
Expected start of the project is September 2015.

The deadline of the application is extended to May 27, 2015.
Expected start of the project is Fall 2015.
