Job Title: Research Associate in Applied Mathematics (Optimisation/Control/SciML)

Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Physics Section, Department of Mathematics, Faculty of Natural Sciences

Location: South Kensington Campus

Salary: £40,858- £48,340 per annum*

Job Summary

The position is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council through the project Elastic Manufacturing Systems - A Platform for Dynamic, Resilient, and Cost-effective Manufacturing Services (EP/T024429/1).

The project aims at challenging traditional manufacturing systems science and to allow future manufacturing operations to be delivered as a service based on dynamic resource requirements and provision, thus opening manufacturing to entirely different business and cost models. The project team, including researchers at University of Nottingham, University of Cambridge, and Imperial College, as well as industrial partners, addresses this challenge from different theoretical and applied perspectives.

You will work on developing an applied mathematics methodology incorporating elements of computational optimisation, control theory, and scientific machine learning.

Duties and Responsibilities

You are expected to play a crucial role in the accomplishment of the following objectives:

• Establishing a mathematical formalism for elastic manufacturing systems, guided by concepts from operations research and hybrid systems control. • The development of a computational optimisation methodology based on multilevel optimisation and dynamic programming. • Risk and reward modelling, optimisation, and assessment of autonomous elastic services. • Testing and validation in data-driven scenarios. • Public engagement, and dissemination of results.

You will work under the supervision of Dr Dante Kalise and will regularly engage with a larger research team at University of Nottingham and in consortium-wide activities.

You will hold a PhD in Mathematics or equivalent level of professional qualifications and/or experience in at least one of the following areas: computational optimisation, operations research, control theory, and/or scientific machine learning.

Essential Requirements

• Research Associate: PhD in Mathematics or equivalent level of professional qualifications and/or experience in at least one of the following areas: computational optimisation, operations research, control theory, and/or scientific machine learning. • Research Assistant: Near completion of PhD in Mathematics or equivalent level of professional qualifications and/or experience in at least one of the following areas: computational optimisation, operations research, control theory, and/or scientific machine learning. • Experience in at least one of the following areas: computational optimisation, operations research, control theory, and/or scientific machine learning. • Verifiable proficiency in computing. • Ability to identify, develop and apply new concepts, techniques and methods. • Ability to keep accurate records of research results and activity. • Ability to carry out original research and to produce published research papers. • Commitment to meeting deadlines. • Discipline and regard for confidentiality and security at all times. • Willingness to undertake any necessary training for the role.

Further Information

The position is full-time and fixed term for 36 months, based at South Kensington Campus. The expected start date is 1 September 2021 or soon thereafter.

*Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as a Research Assistant within salary range £36,045- £39,183 per annum.

In addition to completing the online application, candidates should attach:

• A full CV • A 1-page research statement describing why the candidate’s expertise is relevant to this position and future research plans • The details of three referees.

For any specific queries regarding the post please contact Dr Dante Kalise (dkaliseb@ic.ac.uk).
