Offer Description

We are looking for a junior researcher to join us in creating "Technology for a better society".

Together with our industry partners, we deliver applied research to uncover new knowledge and solutions that contribute to sustainable value creation, improved resource utilization and new market opportunities.

The Analytics and AI group is currently counting 10 researchers and 3 PhD students. We are now looking to expand the team further. As a researcher in our group, you will join a dynamic team of young, talented, and creative colleagues.

The group specialises in applied research within the following areas:

  • Hybrid AI: The combination of machine learning and other system information, such as mathematical models.
  • The combination of machine learning and optimization/planning, including reinforcement learning and model predictive control.
  • Industrial application of machine learning. Some examples of applications are the development of automated warehouse robots, decision support in wastewater treatment, hybrid models of wind turbines, and improved coordination of road construction machinery.

In particular, we are looking for early career researchers with experience in cybernetics and control theory combined with an interest in and talent for machine learning development. The ideal candidate is well experienced in programming, as well as familiar with software development in teams.
