Assistant Professor System identification & process control for multi-physics systems

TU Eindhoven (TU/e) is a mid-size technical university located in the heart of the high-tech industry in the Netherlands, named the Brainport region. Eindhoven is the fifth largest city in the Netherlands, and including suburbs it has about 420,000 inhabitants. TU/e is a highly ranked university both in research and education.

This vacancy is within the group Control Systems Technology, CST (pillar Dynamics and Control).

The Control Systems Technology group of the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the TU/e seeks to hire an outstanding assistant professor, which should play a leading role in addressing these modelling, estimation and control challenges in general and applying them in plasma control, nuclear fusion (tokamaks), future fuels and thermal systems. The successful candidate should hold a PhD degree in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, systems and control, (applied) mathematics, computer science or physics. Core disciplines that are envisioned to be needed are:

  • Systems and control
  • Data-driven modelling (system identification and/or machine learning) and first principles modelling of multi-physics dynamical systems
  • Partial differential equations and their control
  • Model predictive control (MPC)
  • Distributed and decentralized control
  • Knowledge or interest in relevant application domains, for instance, in nuclear fusion, renewable (solar) fuels, etc.

Tenure track for Assistant Professor in electromagnetic energy conversion systems

Technische Universiteit Eindhoven

The Electromechanics and Power Electronics group is one of the nine research groups of the Department of Electrical Engineering at TU/e. The group is the main center for research in electromechanical power conversion and power electronics in the Netherlands. The research is aligned with the three main strategic research themes of the Eindhoven University of Technology, i.e. Energy, Health and Smart Mobility. The four research tracks of the EPE group are high-tech motion systems and robotics, power electronics systems, smart mobility and advanced modeling. 

 

The tenure track position in electromagnetic energy conversion systems open in the EPE group of TU/e, is one of the 16 positions within the DeSIRE program, in the 4TU Centre for Resilience Engineering.

In the framework of the DeSIRE program, TU/e is looking for an assistant professor (tenure track) who will perform fundamental and application-oriented research into electromagnetic energy conversions in terms of design tools and ultrafast 2D and 3D analytical (numerical) multiscale and multiphysical models of static and dynamic fields. His/her tasks are to:

  • Carry out fundamental and applied research in the forefront of multiphysical modeling of electromagnetic devices.
  • Contribute to the acquisition and management of (inter)national research projects.
  • Cooperate with industrial and academic partners.
  • Teach and supervise students on all academic levels, i.e. BSc, MSc, PDEng and PhD level.
  • Publish in renowned scientific journals and conferences.
