PhD position at TU Berlin on "Compositional Methods for the Control of Concurrent Timed Discrete-Event Systems"

Reference number: IV-197/19 (starting at 01/05/19 / until 30 april 2022 / closing date for applications 15/04/19)

DFG (German Science Foundation) and GACR (Czech Science Foundation) will fund a new joint research project on ‘‘Compositional Methods for the Control of Concurrent Timed Discrete-Event Systems" at Technische Universitaet (TU) Berlin, Friedrich-Alexander Universitaet (FAU) Erlangen-Nuernberg and the Czech Academy of Sciences. In the context of this project,a PhD position at TU Berlin is available. The successful candidate will closely collaborate with another PhD student at FAU Erlangen and a postdoctoral researcher at the Czech Academy of Sciences Branch at Brno. S/he will be supervised by Joerg Raisch from the Control Systems Group at TU Berlin. The appointment will be for 3 years.
