Job Summary

Applicants are invited to apply for two Research Assistant/Associate positions funded by EPSRC to develop novel method for model reduction from data. In particular, the objective of this research programme is to lay the foundations of a new, data-driven, modelling paradigm which provides approximate models which retain specific properties of the underlying systems and are arbitrarily accurate for a set of user-selected operating conditions. This is accomplished by defining the so-called Loewner operators, their shifted versions, and by developing the Loewner calculus. The "Loewner perspective" allows describing complex dynamical behaviours in terms of functions (the Lowner operators, which are finite dimensional operators), "shifts" (which plays the role of the time-derivative or of a discrete-differentiator) and the Loewner calculus (which generates accurate, low-complexity models, from manipulations of the Loewner operators). The methodological results will be supported by the development of numerical methods for real-time implementation of the proposed algorithms and for the generation of data-driven control strategies guaranteeing safe, reliable, and optimal operation of the underlying system. 

Duties and responsibilities

You will carry out research programmes in the area of model order reduction for nonlinear systems with emphasis on data driven aspects based on, but not limited to, the so-called Loewner framework.

Essential requirements

You must have a good PhD in Electrical Engineering, Control Engineering or Mathematics (or equivalent) for appointment at Research Associate level and have previous experience in control engineering, with emphasis on nonlinear control systems, geometric methods, numerical methods, and data driven methods.

Further Information

*Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range £36,694- £39,888 per annum.

The posts are available from 01 February 2022 for 24 months in the first instance, with the possibility of extension. The posts are based in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Imperial College London (South Kensington Campus).

Informal enquiries about the post can be made to Prof. A. Astolfi (a.astolfi@imperial.ac.uk).
