2 PhD positions at the Delft Center for Systems and Control (TU Delft)

2 PhD positions at the Delft Center for Systems and Control at Delft 
University of Technology, the Netherlands funded through the ERC 
project SENTIENT (Scheduling of Event-Triggered Control Tasks).

— Project description:

The SENTIENT project will develop efficient scheduling methods for 
networked control systems, implemented in event-triggered form. The 
objective is to abstract the traffic of such control systems in the 
form of timed-automata. The resulting models will then be employed 
in the synthesis of schedulers. The research will require the use 
of interdisciplinary skills in the fields of control of hybrid 
systems, communication networks, and timed-automata theory. Two 
test-beds will be employed in the research, each assigned to one PhD:

  *   PhD1: will apply his/her research to a wireless control system *
      of a (scaled-down) water distribution network.
  *   PhD2: will apply his/her research to a control bus in an 
      real-time industrial automotive simulator.

— Requirements:

  *   An MSc degree in systems and control, applied mathematics, 
      electrical engineering, computer science or related fields.
  *   Basic knowledge of control systems theory (maybe waived if 
      the candidate is particularly skilled on theoretical computer 
  *   Strong analytical skills and ability to work at the 
      intersection of several research domains, in particular 
      control systems theory and computer science.
  *   At least some basic programming skills in C/C++ are expected.
  *   A good command of the English language and good communication 

— Conditions of employment:

We offer the opportunity to do scientifically exciting research in a 
multi-disciplinary research group. The appointment is for a period of 
4 years. As an employee of the university you will receive a 
competitive salary: between approx. EUR 2100 (first year) and 
EUR 2700 (4th year) gross per month based on a full-time 
appointment, as well as excellent secondary benefits in accordance 
with the Collective Agreement (CAO) of the Association of 
Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU). Assistance with accommodation 
can be arranged.

— Application procedure:

Submit your application to Irina Bruckner (application-3mE@tudelft.nl<mailto:application-3mE@tudelft.nl>) refering to vacancy number 3ME17-48 before November 15th, 2017. Include a cover letter along with:
(i) a detailed curriculum vitae,
(ii) a separate motivation letter stating why the proposed research 
     topic interests you, names and contact of referees, and other 
     information that might be relevant to your application.
(iii) academic transcripts of both your BSc and MSc degrees.

Starting date is: February 1st, 2018
