Post doctoral Contract in Dynamic Control (DyCON)

Estado de la convocatoria: Cerrado

Plazo de solicitud: Hasta el 15 de noviembre de 2018

The European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant “DyCon – DynamicControl”, coordinated by Enrique Zuazua, aims to develop a multifold research agenda in the broad area of Control of Partial Differential Equations (PDE) and their numerical approximation methods to contribute with new key theoretical methods and results and computational software.
This project identifies six key topics:
1) control of parameter dependent problems;
2) long finite time horizon control;
3) control under constraints;
4) inverse design of time-irreversible models;
5) memory models and hybrid PDE/ODE models,
6) and the links between finite and infinite-dimensional dynamical systems
and gathering all contributions develops a Computational Software platform.


Description
The European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant “DYCON – Dynamic Control”, coordinated by Enrique Zuazua, aims to develop a multifold research agenda in the broad area of Control of Partial Differential Equations (PDE) and their numerical approximation methods to contribute with new key theoretical methods and results, and to develop the corresponding computational software.
The chosen postdoc researcher will carry out mathematical and/or computational research on some of the main scientific priorities of DYCON in a multidisciplinary and international environment with excellent facilities.
The duration of the contract is of 12 months, with a possible extension to one or two more years.
