Updated: about 2 months ago
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 01 Jul 2021

As part of DTU Compute ’s strategic focus on AI-driven digitalization research, the section for Dynamical Systems at DTU Compute is looking for a talented researcher for a position as Assistant Professor or Associate Professor in Stochastic Adaptive Control with a focus on Applications to Energy Systems.

The Dynamical Systems section conducts fundamental, advanced, strategic and applied research in the area of dynamical systems. This involves both deterministic and stochastic systems, discrete and continuous systems, deductive and inductive model building, forecasting, optimization and control. We do research in both linear and non-linear systems modelling, forecasting and control within a range of applications. The main themes are energy, water, smart cities, medicine, and biology. As a colleague in the Section for Dynamical Systems you will be part of a large, vibrant and welcoming environment which is internationally rooted. The university is located in the greater Copenhagen area, which is acknowledged for its excellent standards of living, childcare and welfare system.

The assistant professor position is part of DTU’s Tenure Track program. We offer a rewarding and challenging job in an international environment. We strive for academic excellence in an environment characterized by collegial respect and academic freedom tempered by responsibility. We develop talent by offering a career mentor, state-of-the-art research infrastructure, and postgraduate teacher training. DTU’s Tenure Track is an appointment of at most six years, during which you will receive career support in the form of professional and personal guidance. At the end of the tenure track appointment you will be evaluated by an external assessment committee, who will assess your appointment to a permanent Associate Professorship.
