The Sensors & Embedded Systems Research (SESR) Group in the Electrical and Electronics Systems Research (EESR) Division at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is seeking applications for a postdoctoral research associate with expertise in advanced control system theory and application to support research in water treatment process control, advanced manufacturing, and energy systems. Candidates should have demonstrated experience in: 1) the development of novel methodologies for model identification and automation; 2) generating creative solutions for complex systems monitoring and control; and 3) experimental deployment and testing of advanced control theory.
The chosen candidate is expected to perform research that expands current state-of-the-art control theory use in a diverse range of manufacturing, energy production and distribution, and water treatment application areas. The chosen candidate is expected to publish the results of their research. Representative activities include: the development and implementation of system identification algorithms to enable model-predictive control of water treatment systems, smart manufacturing controls approaches for energy intense manufacturing applications, and collaboration with other ORNL researchers to develop technical research strategies to solve problems proposed by the Department of Energy (DOE) and industrial partners.
