Postdoctor in Modeling and Control for Bioproduction
KTH - Royal Institute of Technology - School of Electrical Engineering
The Automatic Control Lab at KTH has one open postdoc position for model based optimization in biopharmaceutical production by mammalian cell systems. We seek candidates with background from modeling of reaction networks, parameter estimation and off- and on-line optimization (Model Predictive Control), preferably with applications in bioproduction. The project is carried out in collaboration with the School of Biotechnology, KTH, and several industrial partners.
Candidates should have a Ph.D. or be near Ph.D. defense in Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering or Biotechnology. The candidate should have a strong background from at least one of the areas bioprocess modeling, system identification or Model Predictive Control, and experience from at least one more of these areas.
The successful applicant should have an outstanding research and publication record. Well-developed analytical and problem solving skills are a requirement. We are looking for a strongly motivated person, who is able to work independently. Good command of English orally and in writing is required to present and publish research results.
