Research topic

The research topic is in the area of Control Engineering. More specifically, the position will require research activities in the areas of system modeling, monitoring, optimization and control applied to process industrial and energy systems. Examples of applications that may be considered are unit processes in the mining industry, hydropower turbines, waste-heat recovery in data centers etc.


You will perform research in a collaborative environment with industry partners and other academic researchers, where theoretical research is combined with practical applications. The results should be published in highly reputed peer-reviewed international journals and conferences. The position will include supervision of MSc and PhD students, to acquire funding for research projects from research funding agencies/councils, EU framework program or industry, and to participate in the teaching activities of the research group. You will need to represent the group at different events, both in Sweden and abroad.As a post doctor, you are expected work independently and engage pro-actively in ongoing research efforts at the research group with your specific expertise.
