of Decision and Control Systems at KTH is
collaborating with the department of Biotechnology and several
pharmaceutical companies on developing solutions for future
optimal continuous bioprocesses based on mammalian cells. This
involves developing methodologies for learning biochemical network
models from time-series data and optimization and control of cell
metabolism in perfusion cultures. We are looking for candidates
with a strong background in bioprocess control, modeling of
reaction networks and/or real-time optimization including model
predictive control. Candidates should have a PhD, or be near PhD
defense, in Control, Chemical Engineering or Biotechnology.
