The European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant “DyCon – DynamicControl”, coordinated by Enrique Zuazua, aims to develop a multifold research agenda in the broad area of Control of Partial Differential Equations (PDE) and their numerical approximation methods to contribute with new key theoretical methods and results, and to develop the corresponding computational software.

This project identifies six key topics: control of parameter dependent problems; long finite time horizon control; control under constraints; inverse design of time irreversible models; memory models and hybrid PDE/ODE models, and the links between finite and infinite-dimensional dynamical systems.

The chosen doctoral candidates will enroll the PhD Program of “Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM)”, and carry out mathematical and computational research on some of the main scientific priorities of DyCon in a multidisciplinary and international environment with excellent facilities.

The chosen doctoral candidates will carry out mathematical and computational research in the Mathematics Doctoral Program of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (Spain), with excellent facilities and worldwide academic and industrial technological network. The project team has a dual location, both at UAM and DeustoTech-Bilbao, the later offering added opportunitis for interaction with Computer Sciences and Industry.

Benefits

Starting date is 1.9.2018 or earlier if availability allows.

Starting salary is approximately 1500€/month. Full time doctoral candidates are expected to complete their theses in three-four years. The contract includes Spanish Social Secuity and healdthcare public plans.
