Position funded by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) (two years, 2006-2007)

A two-year post.doc. position is available at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, Norway. Candidates should have a strong background in process control. Important subject areas are large-scale systems, optimization and control structure design, The project goal is to "model the optimal solution" and from this develop feedback control strategies for near-optimal operation of chemical processes. The overall objective is to develop a systematic procedure for plantwide control (= control structure design for complete chemical plants). The candidate will work in a group of more than 10 Ph.D. students and post.doc's. Annual salary is about 40.000 Euros. Candidates should preferably be no more than 35 years old.

Application deadline: 01 December 2005
Please send application with CV and copy of grades and recommendations by email to Professor Sigurd Skogestad, Department of Chemical Engineering, NTNU, Trondheim, Norway.
