3 PhD Game Theoretic Control Complex Systems of Systems Operator Theory

A new PhD position in mechanical engineering is available at Delft University of Technology. There is no application deadline for this position.

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 candidates 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 PhD positions are in the context of the research projects “Complex Network Games: The Scenario Approach” (OMEGA), funded by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) as TOP grant in Mathematics, and “Game theoretic Control for Complex Systems of Systems” (COSMOS), funded by the European Research Council as ERC Starting Grant.

We arelooking for 3 talented, outstanding candidates with an M.Sc. 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).

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. PhD students will receive a competitive salary and benefits which are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities. Assistance with accommodation can be arranged.

As a PhD candidate you will be enrolled in the TU Delft Graduate School. TU Delft Graduate School provides an inspiring research environment; an excellent team of supervisors, academic staff and a mentor; and a Doctoral Education Programme aimed at developing your transferable, discipline-related and research skills. Please visit http://www.tudelft.nl/phd for more information.
