We are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate who will support the Sensors and Controls Group in the Energy Science and Technology Directorate (ESTD) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) with expertise in modelling, sensor management, and process monitoring. The incumbent of this position will support research in water treatment process control, advanced manufacturing, and energy systems.
The chosen candidate is expected to perform research that expands the state-of-the-art for data- and model-based techniques for process supervision 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 algorithms and software tools for online identification of water treatment system models, smart manufacturing controls approaches for energy-intensive 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.
