PhD position Mathematics in Decentralized Energy Management

The Operations Research group of the Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Twente has a vacancy for a full-time PhD position in the AGILE project “Self-organising marketplace to realise a self-organised sustainable power system”. This project has as goal to design self-organising market mechanisms and corresponding distributed software to enable a smart and sustainable energy system.

The candidate of this vacancy will focus on mathematical aspects. In particular, the candidate will work in the general area of stochastic off-line planning and scheduling, on-line dispatching, self-configuration and self-optimization and will contribute as one of two PhDs to AGILE project, which is a collaboration of University of Twente, Eindhoven University of Technology, and industry partners.

Besides a strong Operations Research and Mathematic background an affinity with engineering and applications would be appreciated. A strong background in power systems engineering is not essential – the other PhD student in the project will focus on those aspects.
