POSTDOC POSITION within ERC-Advanced Grant

POSTDOC POSITION within the ERC-Advanced Grant
“From Open to Closed Loop Optimal Control of PDEs”
Institute of Mathematics and Scientific Computing
University of Graz

About the project: The project addresses a broad spectrum in optimal control of PDEs and focusses on some of the most pressing topics: High dimensional Hamilton Jacobi Bellman equations arising in feedback control, non-smooth, and possibly non-convex optimal control and related computational techniques. The use of optimal control techniques in data science applications can be another focus point for the future collaborator’s research.
Professional qualifications: Doctoral degree in a mathematical branch of study. Solid knowledge in applied mathematics, including PDEs, with specialization in either analytical or computational techniques. Experience in the numerical treatment of high-dimensional partial differential equations is especially welcome. Alternatively, specialization in optimal control, calculus of variations, or optimization is highly appreciated.
