Copenhagen: CATS

Postdoctoral Research Associate

The Center for Chaos and Turbulence Studies has a theoretical and/or experimental opening at post-doctoral level for research in classical and quantum chaos, non-linear chemical dynamics, hydrodynamical and chemical turbulence, and complex systems in physics, chemistry and biology. The research is carried out at the Niels Bohr Institute, the Department of Chemistry at the University of Copenhagen, and the Physics Institute at the Technical University of Denmark, often in close collaboration with other groups, such as the astrophysics, nuclear, particle and condensed matter physics, chemistry, biology and neural networks groups. Further information about the Center can be obtained via the World Wide Web,

Control Eng/Mech Eng

Research Associate

Applications are invited for the above post, tenable for three years from January 1st 1996 or shortly thereafter. The project will involve an investigation into the estimation, analysis and synthesis of nonlinear systems in the frequency domain. The study will be based on a Volterra series representation and identified nonlinear models and will involve a mix of theoretical analysis and the practical application of the algorithms to engineering systems. Applicants should have a good honours degree and should hold or expect to hold a PhD in Control Engineering, Signal Processing, Mathematics or a related field. Experience in Volterra series and the anlaysis of nonlinear systems in the frequency domain would be highly desirable.

Commencing salary within the range
