Job description

The two-year postdoc position is part of the research project“Edge AI for High Stability-Robustness of Power Electronics in Modern Power Systems” funded by the Villum Foundation. The project aims at solving current instability problems with power converters in, e.g., wind turbines, by changing and modernising the control architecture. This will be achieved using AI at the edge(deep learning applied in microcontrollers), and is expected to push the boundaries and capabilities of state of the art through advances in signal processing and system identification theories.

A team of researchers will be collaborating in this project, and the main focus of this postdoc will be on the machine learning aspects of the project. The research team will be cross-disciplinary, and an important part of this postdoc position will thus be the engagement with the rest of the project team, e.g., in deployment of machine learning models on edge devices in the context of power converter control. 

Through this project, we are offering a unique opportunity to strengthen your research profile, and to collaborate with world-leading scientists in the different related domains. We offer freedom with responsibility, through flexible working hours, and an informal and curiosity driven research team at an internationally strong department.

To reach the ambitious goals of the project, we are looking for a postdoc who has

  • A PhD degree in one or more of the areas: machine learning, signal processing, statistical modelling, power electronics, and power systems.
  • Working experience with training and deployment of AI models.
  • Knowledge about power electronics systems.
  • Excellent communication skill(English), both spoken and written.
