Functieomschrijving

Senior researcher dynamic systems & control

You develop advanced controllers for smart and interconnected systems (machines, robots and vehicles).

Develop advanced model predictive, learning and robust adaptive control algorithms

  • Set up research projects in advanced control technologies and
  • tackle challenges in multicontext adaptive control, robust control, learning control, control of systems of systems, interconnected systems,… ;
  • for a wide scala of industrial applications (e.g. collaborative robot, autonomous vehicle, forklift, weaving machine, agricultural robot, 3D printer, suspension in a car, hybrid drivetrain…)

Function

As an expert in dynamic systems & control, you:

  • Question the industry challenges;
  • Set up a dynamic model of the plant system and propose a control strategy (system approach);
  • Develop and implement the new controller (Matlab, Simulink, C++);
  • Validate the results in cooperation with validation engineers;
  • Work in a multidisciplinary team (sensing, actuation, validation…).

Experienced engineers will also coach young researchers and lead projects.

Profile

You have

  • A Master or PhD in Control Engineering or another relevant domain (Mechanical, Electronical, Electrical, Automotive, Modelling & Simulation, Mechatronics, Robotics, …);
  • Strong theoretical background in the field of modelling, simulation and control;
  • Practical experience in at least two advanced control technologies on dynamical systems;
  • Track record in research (in academy or industry) where you applied theoretical concepts on practical case problems.

You are

  • An expert user of modeling software (Matlab, Simulink).
  • A conceptual thinker inspired by research problems and technological innovation;
  • A good listener and communicator who can build sustainable relationships;
  • Pro-active and taking initiative;
  • Enthusiastic about developing new project ideas.

Creative flexible work environment

  • Flanders Make gives you the opportunity to develop yourself in the network of top industry and universities and research institutes;
  • An open-minded, flexible and challenging working environment;
  • A warm atmosphere and top colleagues;
  • An attractive salary with fringe benefits.
