Advanced Grant “DYCON – Dynamic Control”

The Chair of Computational Mathematics led by E. Zuazua of the DeustoTech Research Center in Bilbao (Basque Country, Spain) offers a postdoctoral position to carry out mathematical and computational research, with excellent facilities within a world-wide academic and industrial-technological network.
This position is funded by the European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant “DYCON – Dynamic Control”.
Research activities will be focused in some of the priority lines of the project, that will be identified accordingly to the candidate's profile.

The European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant “DYCON – Dynamic Control”, coordinated by Enrique Zuazua at DeustoTech (University of Deusto, Bilbao – Basque Country – Spain), aims to develop a multifold research agenda in the broad area of Control of Partial Differential Equations (PDE) and their numerical approximation methods to contribute with new key theoretical methods and results, and to develop the corresponding computational software.

This project identifies six key topics:
- Control of parameter dependent problems.
- Long finite time horizon control.
- Control under constraints.
- Inverse design of time-irreversible models.
- Memory models and hybrid PDE/ODE models.
- Links between finite and infinite-dimensional dynamical systems.

The chosen postdoc researcher will carry out mathematical and/or computational research, with excellent facilities and world-wide academic and industrial-technological network, in DeustoTech (Bilbao – Basque Country – Spain) in some of the priority lines of the project, that will be identified accordingly to the candidate's profile.

- PhD Thesis in Mathematics, Physics, Informatics, Engineering or closely related areas, with emphasis on Partial Differential Equations, Control theory, Numerical Analysis and/or Scientific Computing.
- Able to work in a highly motivated environment.
- Strong team working & communication skills.
- Good written English skills.
- Driven, independent personality.

We offer:
A temporary contract in Bilbao, University of Deusto, at a stimulating work environment within a highly motivated multidisciplinary team. Possibilities to continue a research career depending on performance

Dear Prof. Castellanos,

I am a recent PhD graduate in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from UC, Davis currently working at the Jet Propulsion Lab as a visiting researcher. I have a background in spacecraft dynamics and controls and am interested in the postdoctoral position that has been advertised in your group. I was wondering how I can go about formally applying to the position as there are no details on this page such as links to a formal applicaiton. I can be reached at: with more information.
