The Department of Automatic Control at KTH conducts fundamental and 
applied research in system identification, optimization and control of 
wireless networks, networked systems, and systems theory. The department 
is internationally well established, has many research collaborations 
with excellent partners worldwide, and is involved in several European 
and national projects. Industrial projects involve partners such as ABB 
Corporate Research, ABB Process Automation, BillerudKorsnäs, Ericsson 
Research, and Scania. We have a large academic network and collaborate 
with researchers at MIT, Harvard University, UC Berkeley, Stanford, TU 
Eindhoven, and Université de Lyon among others.

The department has one open postdoc position within model based 
optimization of biopharmaceutical production by mammalian cell systems.  
We seek candidates with  background from modeling of reaction networks, 
parameter estimation and  off- and on-line optimization (Model 
Predictive Control), preferably with applications in bioproduction. The 
project is carried out in collaboration with the School of 
Biotechnology, KTH, and several industrial partners.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. or be near Ph.D. defense, in Electrical 
Engineering, Chemical Engineering or Biotechnology. The candidate should 
have a strong background from at least one of the areas bioprocess 
modeling, system identification or Model Predictive Control, and 
experience from at least one more of these areas.

The successful applicant should have an outstanding research and 
publication record. Well-developed analytical and problem solving skills 
are a requirement. We are looking for a strongly motivated person, who 
is able to work independently. Good command of English orally and in 
writing is required to present and publish research results.
