A postdoctoral position is currently available in the Control Systems Engineering Laboratory at 
Arizona State University (CSEL, This position is in support of two US National 
Institutes of Health grants focused on applying system identification, dynamical systems, and 
control engineering principles to develop novel time-varying interventions for chronic, relapsing 
disorders in behavioral health. These interventions play an increasingly prominent role in a wide 
variety of areas of public health importance, including drug abuse, HIV/AIDS, cancer, mental 
health, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular health, and aging.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in an engineering discipline with strong demonstrated analytical 
and computing skills. An ideal candidate has expertise in the following areas: system 
identification, model predictive control, and simulation and optimization of stochastic systems. 
Activities associated with these projects will be performed in a highly interdisciplinary environment 
involving psychologists (clinical, quantitative, developmental), statisticians, and computer 
scientists. Strong communication skills and the ability to interact in a diverse intellectual 
environment are a must. Women and underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged to 
apply. Additional information regarding CSEL's efforts in this area can be found in

A competitive salary is available for well-qualified individuals. The initial appointment is for one 
year, renewable for additional years based on performance and continued availability of funds. 
Interested individuals should apply to Professor Daniel E. Rivera, Program Director, Control 
Systems Engineering Laboratory at [log in to unmask] Please include a CV, a list of three 
references, and a brief statement of research interests. Copies of significant authored publications 
in themes relevant to the projects are welcome.
