We invite applications for one post-doctoral position in networked control for Intelligent Transportation Systems. At the Mechatronics Group of the Electrical Engineering Department, we are engaged in both fundamental and applied research related to intelligent transportation systems. Ongoing research projects in this field focus, among others, on the design and the experimental validation of control algorithms for connected autonomous vehicles.

The successful candidate will join a team of post-docs and Ph. D. students, engaged in neighboring research, and is expected to contribute to the design of control algorithms for systems, subject to state and input constraints, communicating through lossy channels with limited capacity. If possible and relevant, the achieved results will be demonstrated through experiments on full-scale vehicles and in collaboration with our industrial partners.

The research project is strongly connected with ongoing research projects within the WASP (Walleberg Autonomous Systems Program).

Major responsibilities

The working time of post-doctoral staff is mainly devoted to research. Undergraduate teaching duties, not exceeding 20% of the working time, may include supervision of MSc students.

The appointment is a full-time employment (not a scholarship) for a period of not more than two years (1+1).


A PhD (or close to completion) in control theory, optimization and constrained optimal control or neighboring relevant field. Experience with automotive control applications will be preferred.

Ability to initiate new research collaborations is essential. Good communication skills in oral and written English are required.

To qualify for the position of postdoc, you must have a doctoral degree in a relevant field; the degree should generally not be older than three years. You are expected to be somewhat accustomed to teaching, and to demonstrate good potential within research and education.

The position requires sound verbal and written communication skills in Swedish and English. If Swedish is not your native language, you should be able to teach in Swedish on undergraduate level after two years. Chalmers offers Swedish courses.
