The Process Dynamics and Operations Group has several vacancies for PhD students or PostDocs in the field of optimizing control of chemical processes, among others in the context of the recently awarded ERC Advanced Grant Project MOBOCON – Model-based Optimizing Control – from a vision to industrial reality.

The ideal candidates will have a good knowledge of control theory and optimization algorithms as well as of the dynamics of chemical processes. Candidates with strengths in one area who are interested in and able to deepen their knowledge in the other fields are also encouraged to apply. We are looking for candidates with a high research potential that is proven by previous success in course work (significantly above average grades) by a high quality thesis.

Applications should include at least:

  • Letter of motivation
  • CV
  • Transcripts of all academic degrees
  • For Germans: Abiturzeugnis
  • List of publications
  • Letters of recommendation (not mandatory but recommended).

Please send your application at the earliest convenience to:

Professor Dr. Sebastian Engell
Process Dynamics and Operations Group
Biochemical and Chemical Engineering Department

TU Dortmund

Emil-Figge-Str. 70
44221 Dortmund

Or by email to Prof. Dr. Sebastian Engell
