[DMANET] PhD position University of Twente


*PhD Researcher at University of Twente in the NWO project**
´*Self-organising marketplace to realise a self-organised sustainable
power system* (AGILE)´
(see also!/414850/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. 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-optimisation 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.

The PhD candidate will be employed at the chair Discrete Mathematics and
Mathematical Programming at the University of Twente (see and for the
energy management related research) but the project is carried out in
cooperation with the Stochastics and Power systems engineering groups at
Eindhoven University of Technology.

Please apply before November 1, 2018 via the webpage!/414850/phd-position-mathematics-in-decentralized-energy-management
