Location:  Highfield Campus
Salary:   £34,980 to £42,978 per annum
Full Time Fixed Term until 31/03/2026
Closing Date:  Monday 04 March 2024

An exciting opportunity has arisen for you to join our collaborative team in the area of adaptive estimation as part of an EPSRC funded project. The research will look at developing adaptive estimation and control algorithms for systems containing uncertainties and nonlinearities which are not in the class of those typically considered by standard adaptive control and estimation algorithms. The research will look particularly at ways of combining adaptive estimation algorithms with approaches broadly from the robust control literature. An important part of the project is to develop algorithms which can be implemented in practice, for example on aircraft or certain classes of biological systems.

The successful applicant should have (or shortly be obtaining) a PhD in control systems engineering or a closely related field, ideally in adaptive control, robust control or similar. It is vital you have experience in Lyapunov/passivity-based stability analysis. A background in aerospace control would be advantageous. It is essential that you demonstrate the ability to apply sound control theoretic techniques to complex technical problems.

You will be working closely with Dr Matthew Turner and Dr. Andrea Lecchini-Visintini at the University of Southampton, UK and also with other colleagues associated with the project.

Applications will be considered from candidates who are working towards or nearing completion of a relevant PhD qualification.  The title of Research Fellow will be applied upon completion of PhD.  Prior to the qualification being awarded the title of Senior Research Assistant will be given.
