Post-doc position in mechatronics at ULB

The deadline for submission is December 15th 2019.

The position is for 18 months, starting early 2020.

The Precision Mechatronics Laboratory (PML) at ULB, Université Libre de Bruxelles, invites applications for a postdoctoral research position in electromechanical engineering.

The successful candidate will be working of the development of instrumentations and methods for controlling actively structural vibrations. The research will include both theoretical investigations and experimental validations.

The suitable profile should hold a PhD in electromechanical engineering or equivalent, and have a strong background in structural vibration theory, in modeling of mechatronics systems, and in feedback control. A solid background in electronics and a capability to conduct experiments are assets for this position.

PML focuses of precision control of structures like gravitational wave detectors, satellites, deployable space telescopes, aerospace structures and light sources. The diversity of challenging applications forms an exciting and multidisciplinary environment, ideal for cross-fertilization of novel ideas.

The group is hosted in the BEAMS department of ULB, which has many facilities for preparing and conducting experiments.

Applications should be sent directly to Prof. Collette (ccollett@ulb.ac.be ) and should contain:

  • Cover letter
  • List of publications
  • Detailed curriculum vitae
  • Name, affiliation and email address of three referees

For more information, please contact Prof. Collette.
