Position: Postdoctoral researcher
Deadline for receipt of applications: March 24th, 2023.
The Chair of Computational Mathematics led by E. Zuazua of the Fundación Deusto in Bilbao (Basque Country, Spain) offers a postdoctoral position to carry out mathematical and computational research, with excellent facilities within a world-wide academic and industrial-technological network.
This position is funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation Ministry Strategic Projects Focused on the Ecological and Digital Transition”(2021) through the project titled “Data science for power grids”.
Research activities will be focused in some of the priority lines of the project, that will be identified accordingly to the candidate’s profile.
The aim of DASEL (Data science and electric networks) project is to develop data driven modelling, simulation and control methodologies for electrical networks. One of its goals is to contribute to the integration of distributed generation systems of renewable origin such as photovoltaic, wind or hydroelectric energy, which represent a priority strategic objective for a more sustainable society of the future.
The main research fields covered by DASEL are:
-Partial Differential Equations
This project is funded by the Spanish Ministry for Science and Innovation, in its commitment to develop greener and more sustainable solutions and advancing digitalisation through science and innovation. With the aid of European funds from the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan, the Ministry aims to promote R&D activities to increase the competitiveness and international leadership of Spanish science and technology through the generation of scientific knowledge and through quality research aimed at the green and digital transition.
In this context DASEL aims to combine the know-how on Applied Mathematics and Data Sciences. Digital technologies have become an important part of our daily routine, impacting the way we interact with people and do business. A more productive and environmentally friendly economy requires a methodical and applied research and innovation strategy with an integrated vision of the future. Data science and machine learning are players in this technological innovation due to the importance of using these tools to transform data into a competitive advantage by redefining their products and services. Although data science and machine learning are present today basically in any type of industrial and technological applications, many constitutive aspects of these disciplines are still only partially understood. This has opened a new and very fertile field of research for applied mathematicians who, in recent years, have widely taken advantage of this possibility to develop new branches of pure and applied innovative research.
Under this perspective, DASEL aims to contribute to the ecological and digital transition by addressing some specific questions in data science and machine learning from the point of view of applied mathematics in the field of energy.
