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.
Applicants should possess the following qualification and attributes:
With a strong background in the broad area of Signal Processing & Information Engineering, preferably having expertise in one or more of the following (but not limited to):
The tenure-track position is offered for six years. The section leader, department leaders and the successful candidate will agree upon expected performance and (soft) skills. Formal feedback on performance and skills will be provided during annual assessment meetings and the mid-term evaluation. Based on the performance indicators agreed upon at the start of the appointment, a decision will be made by the fifth year whether to offer a permanent faculty position. If the performance and skills are evaluated positively at the end of the tenure track, a permanent Assistant Professor position will be offered.
