2 Postdocs Game Theoretic Control Complex Systems of Systems Operator Theory

Delft University of Technology, Netherlands is inviting applicants to apply for a postdoc position in mechanical engineering. Applications should be sumbmitted as soon as possible.

The 3mE Faculty trains committed engineering students, PhD candidates and post-doctoral researchers in groundbreaking scientific research in the fields of mechanical, maritime and materials engineering. 3mE is the epitome of a dynamic, innovative faculty, with a European scope that contributes demonstrable economic and social benefits.

The department Delft Center for Systems and Control (DCSC) of the faculty Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering, coordinates the education and research activities in systems and control at Delft University of Technology. The Centers’ research mission is to conduct fundamental research in systems dynamics and control, involving dynamic modelling, advanced control theory, optimisation and signal analysis. The research is motivated by advanced technology development in physical imaging systems, robotics and transportation systems. The researchers will conduct theoretical and algorithmic research on complex multi-agent systems characterized by the presence of: (i) mixed cooperative and noncooperative agents; (ii) uncertain and stochastic variables; (iii) mixed-integer decision variables. The research will develop and build upon tools from game theory, monotone and fixed-point operator theory, statistical learning, distributed optimization and control. The main application areas are distributed control for smart power grids and multi-vehicle automated driving.

The PostDoc positions are in the context of the research project “Game theoretic Control for Complex Systems of Systems” (COSMOS), funded by the European Research Council as ERC Starting Grant.

We arelooking for 2 talented, outstanding research fellows with a PhD degree (or close to completion) in Systems and Control, or Applied Mathematics, Electrical or Mechanical Engineering, or related field, with theoretical background and interest in System Theory, Automatic Control, Optimization, Game Theory, and with good command of the English language (knowledge of Dutch is not required). Expertise in mixed-integer optimization is appreciated.

TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount for health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged. An International Children's Centre offers childcare and an international primary school. Dual Career Services offers support to accompanying partners. The research fellows will receive salary and benefits which are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.

Assistance with accommodation can be arranged.

- curriculum vitae;

- statement of motivation and research interests (up to one page);

- transcripts of all exams taken and obtained degrees (in English);

- names and contact information of up to three references (e.g. project/thesis supervisors);

- up to three research documents (e.g. thesis, conference/journal publication).

Applications or inquires shall be emailed to Dr. Sergio Grammatico (s.grammatico@tudelft.nl).

The starting date are flexible. The call for applications will remain open until the ideal candidates are found.
