Two Postdoctoral Research Fellow positions are available in the School of 
Chemical Engineering at The University of New South Wales, Sydney,
Australia.
 
Position 1: Postdoctoral Research Fellow
REF.# 10832
Salary: AUD$83K - AUD$89K per year (plus 9.5% employer superannuation and
leave loading)
 
A Postdoctoral Research Fellow position is available for work in the field
of process control on an Australian Research Council funded project. This
project aims to develop a new control approach to distributed energy
storage, utilising one of the most promising flow battery technologies -
Vanadium Redox batteries. This is the first attempt of a storage centric
approach that includes (1) an integrated approach to design and control of
Vanadium flow batteries to achieve optimal charging/discharging conditions
and (2) a scalable distributed energy storage and power management approach
incorporating energy pricing for storage dispatch that allows distributed
autonomous controllers to achieve optimal local techno-economic performance
and microgrid-wide efficiency and reliability. This is a multidisciplinary
research project. The successful applicant will be supervised by and
working with Prof. Jie Bao (Process Control), Prof. Maria Skyllas-Kazacos
(the inventor of Vanadium Batteries) and Prof. Vassilios Agelidis (Power
Electronics).
 
Essential criteria: a PhD in Engineering or Mathematics; good knowledge of
and research experience with process control and modern control theories
including model predictive control; strong mathematical modelling skills;
ability to work independently; excellent oral and written communication
skills; a solid track record of research publications.

Desirable criteria: Good knowledge of and research experience with: (1)
flow batteries and electrochemistry; (2) dissipativity control theory,
distributed model predictive control, and large systems theory; (3) power
electronics.

https://www.jobs.unsw.edu.au/postdoctoral-research-fellow-15
 
Applicants are required to apply for this position online at the above
website, addressing the selection criteria found in the position
description.
 
This is a full-time fixed term position for 12 months, with potential for a
further 12 month extension. It is available immediately.
 
An applicant may be required to undergo pre-employment checks prior to
appointment to this role.
 
Enquires may be directed to Professor Jie Bao on telephone +61 (2) 9385

Application close: 21st June 2015
 

Position 2: Postdoctoral Research Fellow
REF.# 10830
Salary: AUD$83K - AUD$89K per year (plus 9.5% employer superannuation and
leave loading)
 
A Postdoctoral Research Fellow position is available for work in the field
of process control on an Australian Research Council funded project. Based
on the behavioural approach to systems and dissipativity theory, this
project aims to integrate nonlinear control theory with distributed
optimization to develop a novel distributed predictive control approach for
complex industrial processes. The outcomes will include a framework and the
fundamental control theory for distributed autonomous model predictive
control that achieves improved scalability, flexibility and robustness.
 
Essential criteria: a PhD in Engineering or Mathematics; good knowledge of
and research experience with modern control theories including nonlinear
control theory; strong mathematical skills; ability to work independently;
excellent oral and written communication skills; a good track record of
research publications.
 
Desirable criteria: good knowledge of and research experience with the
dissipativity theory, large systems theory, chemical process control and
thermodynamics.
