At the Division Distributed Control in Interconnected Systems (Prof. Dr. Andreas Rauh), Department of Computer Science of the University of Oldenburg, there is one vacancy as

Doctoral Candidate (m/f/d)

(E 13 TV-L, 100 %)

This post is available immediately, for a fixed term contract, 3 years.

The position is suitable for part-time work.

The position serves as a qualification of junior scientists and offers the possibility to perform research as a doctoral student (PhD candidate).

What you have to do in the Project Reliable Fractional-Order Models for the Control of Energy Systems:

  • Modeling, control, and state estimation on the basis of fractional differential equations for electrochemical energy storage
  • Development of decentralized control and estimation procedures
  • Development of novel techniques for a model-based fault diagnosis and isolation
  • Continuous-time, discrete-time and event-triggered design techniques
  • Systematic comparison with integer-order system representations
  • Research on innovative set-valued and stochastic approaches for uncertainty modeling
  • Design and instrumentation of laboratory-scale test rigs for the experimental validation of the developed methods
  • Teaching in the areas of robust and nonlinear control as well as control-oriented modeling of dynamic systems to an extent of 4 hours weekly 

What you need:

  • Master’s degree, diploma or equivalent in a research-oriented university study program on computer science, electrical engineering, mechatronics, or mechanical engineering with above-average achievements
  • Solid mathematical background with respect to modeling and simulation of dynamic systems
  • Affinity to control-oriented software design and modeling
  • Solid experience in programming languages such as Matlab, C++, Python
  • First experience in the fields of robust and nonlinear control, Kalman filtering, or interval analysis is advantageous 

The University of Oldenburg is dedicated to increasing the percentage of female employees in the field of science. Therefore, female candidates are strongly encouraged to apply. In accordance with Lower Saxony regulations (§ 21 Section 3 NHG) female candidates with equal qualifications will be preferentially considered.

Applicants with disabilities will be given preference in case of equal qualification.

Applications can be sent electronically as one PDF ( with reference "VRivS No 1" and should include a full CV, copies of certificates and two references, and the earliest possible starting date. Applications close 23.01.2022 (5pm GMT).
