The Delft Center for Systems and Control (DCSC) of Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), The Netherlands is seeking a qualified candidate for a one-year PostDoc position within the research area of integration of model-based and learning-based control, with the application in urban network traffic control.
The current state of the art for efficient and green urban mobility can be divided into two parts: system- optimum oriented approaches mainly target dynamic control of traffic lights to decrease congestion in urban areas; and user-optimum oriented approaches mainly focus on developing individual driving assistance systems for eco-driving in urban areas. In this project, we aim to target system-optimum and user-optimum by making traffic lights and vehicles work together while we address scalability, model uncertainty and fluctuations in traffic demand.
We achieve these goals by means of an integrated approach combining model-based (e.g. Robust MPC) and learning-based control techniques (e.g. reinforcement learning).
The department Delft Center for Systems and Control (DCSC) of the faculty Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering, coordinates the education and research activities in systems and control at Delft University of Technology. The Centers' research mission is to conduct fundamental research in systems dynamics and control, involving dynamic modelling, advanced control theory, optimisation and signal analysis. The research is motivated by advanced technology development in physical imaging systems, renewable energy, robotics and transportation systems.
We are looking for a talented, outstanding Postdoc researcher with a PhD degree (or close to completion) in Systems and Control, Applied Mathematics, or a related field, with theoretical background and/or interest in automatic control, numerical optimization, and/or machine learning. Knowledge on urban traffic control is a plus but not required. A good command of the English language is required.
Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities (salary indication: €3.491 - €4.402 per month). The TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount on health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged.
For international applicants we offer the Coming to Delft Service and Partner Career Advice to assist you with your relocation. An International Children's Centre offers childcare and there is an international primary school.
