Science jobs from TU Delft:
In the scope of the ERC Advanced Grant Integrated Feedback Control and High Resolution Imaging Prof. M. Verhaegen of the Delft University of Technology - Department of Systems and Control is seeking an outstanding Postdoc in Objective 2 of the ERC program.

Distributed Control for Exterme Adaptive Optics

Extreme Adaptive Optics is real-time feedback control problems with degrees of freedom (sensors, actuators and systems dynamics) in the order 10.000 or more. In the group of Prof. M. Verhaegen new data driven methods for identification and control of large scale systems are being developed. Some of these developments have lead to prestigious prices such as the best PhD in Europe in the field of Control for Complex and Heterogeneous Systems in 2011. The goal is to built on this expertise to develop 2D distributed control methodologies and validate these methods for the Extreme Adaptive Optics problems of the future, such as in the European Extreme Large Telescope (E-ELT).

The ultimate goal of this research program is to develop a 2D data driven control design methodology for integrated real-time and post-processing image restoration. This comprises both research on methods that can be distributed as well as on the distributed implementation of these methods using state of the art developments in GPUs.

Successful completion of this project will lead to a fundamental step forward in both the identification of large scale network connected systems as well as in the data driven control of these methods.

We seek a candidate with a strong background in distributed control (MPC-adaptive), numerical method development for large scale systems and their implementation on GPUs; a researchers who is eager to invent new solutions for challenging new problems.

The position is a 3 year research position and will be mainly carried out at the Delft Center for Systems and Control, the Netherlands as short term visit to international renowned institutes are also possible.
