PhD in System Identification and Control at ETH Zurich

ETH Zurich is offering PhD position. This fellowship is available for all students around the world. Applicants should apply as soon as possible.

Automatic Control Laboratory (IfA) is a part of the Theis a part of the Department of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering (D-ITET) at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich, Switzerland. We are located in the central campus, close to the city centre. The focus of the laboratory is research and teaching in the field of automatic control systems and we have an extensive research record in both the theory and application of control technology. The lab has four faculty: John Lygeros (head), Florian Drfler, Roy Smith and Maryam Kamgarpour and three Emeriti Professors: Adolf Glattfelder, Mohamed Mansour and Manfred Morari. We have approximately 10 postdoctoral students and over 30 PhD students. new position.This position is part of a larger research effort, led by Prof. Roy Smith, and is focused on the modeling, identification and control of systems characterised by periodic behaviour. Both theoretical and application topics will be studied with the application work addressing several areas in the energy domain: multiple grid energy systems; autonomous kites for airborne wind energy; and thermoacoustic machines. There are two Ph.D. positions available within this project. The positions are open from June 2018 and will remain open until filled. The positions are fully funded for four years.

Candidates must have strong mathematical skills and a completed (or close to completed) Masters degree from an internationally recognised university. The focus of the Masters degree can be in either control systems, optimisation, modeling and identification, or a related field. Candidates may have either a theoretical or an experimental background. The working language of the lab is English, therefore a working knowledge of English is required.
