Research Associate/Research Fellow - Optimal Control
Curtin University

School of Electrical Engineering, Computing, and Mathematical Sciences

Closing date: 19th July 2019

A unique opportunity exists for a postdoctoral researcher to work on a project funded by the Australian Research Council titled “Real-time global optimisation for distributed parameter control systems”.

The purpose of the project is to develop a new optimal control framework, underpinned by recent advances in constraint propagation, switching surface optimisation, and input regularisation, leading to cutting-edge control algorithms for replacing the inefficient manual operations endemic in Australia’s natural gas and mineral processing plants.

The role will involve

  • utilising your analytical skills in mathematical modelling and algorithm development to provide new insights into new and existing research and industry projects
  • assisting with student supervision
  • utilising your in-depth knowledge to enable and deliver new scientific discoveries, leading to international publications and practical impact
  • you will be widely respected for your collaborative qualities

You will work in a team led by Chief Investigators Professor Ryan Loxton, Associate Professor Lorenzo Ntogramatzidis and Dr Qun Lin in the School of Electrical Engineering, Computing, and Mathematical Sciences (EECMS) based at Curtin’s Bentley Campus, Perth, Western Australia. The position will provide opportunities to engage with collaborators and industry partners, both locally and internationally, and developing proposals for further funding.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a young, dynamic research team with a passion for translating new mathematical results into real-world outcomes.
