Assistant/Associate Professor Multi-dimensional Signal Processing and Control

Assistant/Associate Professor Multi-dimensional Signal Processing and Control

Published Deadline Location
19 Jun 31 Aug Delft

Job description

Global digitalization has greatly expanded the availability of high-performance multi-dimensional sensor systems. To increase the performance and robustness of such complex multi-disciplinary control systems in high-tech manufacturing, safety systems, aerospace, and the biomedical sciences, it is essential to exploit these vast amounts of data efficiently. The high-dimensional nature of these signals and systems poses great challenges in terms of signal processing, system identification, and control. A comprehensive approach, combining insights from several scientific areas, cross-fertilized with signal processing and control engineering, is essential.

This position is located in the Numerics for Control and Identification (N4CI) section within DCSC. The position should expand and/or strengthen N4C’s current activities in the area of signal analysis, identification, and control on one side and application areas including adaptive optics, microscopy, molecular imaging, mass spectrometry, fibre optics, and water waves on the other side.
