Two postdoctoral positions are currently available in the Process Systems Engineering 
Laboratory at MIT. 

Position 1: This project involves the development of numerical methods and codes for 
computing generalized derivatives of the solutions of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) 
and differential-algebraic equations (DAEs) with nonsmooth right-hand sides. This is based on 
very recent theoretical developments in this area. The successful candidate will join the 
Novartis-MIT Center for Continuous Manufacturing working as part of a team focusing on 
novel campaign continuous operating strategies for pharmaceutical manufacturing plants. 

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in computational science and engineering with expertise in 
numerical methods for ODEs, DAEs and sensitivity analysis. 

Position 2: The successful candidate will join the Novartis-MIT Center for Continuous 
Manufacturing working on software, theory and numerical methods for parameter estimation 
in dynamic systems using global optimization, and reachability analysis for dynamic systems. 
The project is sponsored by a major international corporation and the candidate's 
responsibilities will include frequent interaction with and reporting to the sponsor, including 
deployment of software to the sponsor.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in chemical engineering or computational science and 
engineering with expertise in the areas mentioned above; in particular, experience with 
complex numerical software is desired.

Interested applicants should send a detailed curriculum vitae and a list of at least three 
referees to:

Paul I. Barton
Lammot du Pont Professor
Process Systems Engineering Laboratory
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 66-470b
