Smart Optics Systems (SOS)
is 1 of the 4 innovative Nationwide research programs recently approved by the
Dutch National Science Foundation.
The 6.7 MEuro research program lasts for 5 years and unites
the Dutch scientific leaders in the
development of the next generation of smart optics systems for use in
health and life sciences,
industrial imaging and laser processing, lithography and astronomy.
Within the program different multidisciplinary teams,
bringing together experts from technology development side
(such as DM and WFS technology)
with experts in mechatronics, control engineering, lasers
and domain experts.
These teams will bring together in total
approximately 15 PhD students
from different research organizations in the Netherlands.
The unique feature of the program is to make smart optics technology more industrially attractive. For that purpose the program forsees to create a new trend change in the development strategy. A trend change that optimizes the integration between passive and active components taking domain specific constraints (resolution, cost and product complexity) into account.
Within the group leading the SOS program, the Delft Center for Systems and Control, there is a career perspective for an ambitious postdoctoral researcher at the interface of Physics (optics) and control for integrated system optimization. The successful candidate is expected to effectively lead PhD projects, interface with industrial partners, perform and publish innovative research results and develop innovative course and laboratory programs within the university.
Research directions of interest are:
– Robust Adaptive real-time control of Multidimensional systems for image enhancement via active optical components.
– Identification of Multidimensional disturbance models.
– Multi-criteria optimization in the design of smart optics systems via virtual prototyping.
The position is initially a two year appointment, but upon successful progress an extension towards a permanent position can be negotiated.
In case of an already esteemed research profile and interest to become a leader in smart optics systems control it is possible to directly contact Prof. M. Verhaegen and discuss the potential for a tenure track position from the start.
Closing date: Until filled.
Interested applicants should contact Prof. Michel Verhaegen. Please indicate with a cover letter your expertise, motivation and experience most relevant to the position. Include a cv with highlight publications, and the names of three professional references.
