A postdoc position, starting 1 June 2019, is available to: (i) performscreening and data analysis of experimental results from a novel developedsensor; (ii) development and application of machine learning algorithms forprocessing of sensor data; and, (iii) modelling and optimization of biochemicalprocesses by applying mathematical programming.
The postdoc project is part of Beer Fingerprint Project (BFP) funded by theInnovation Fund Denmark and Professor Krist V. Gernaey and Assoc. Proff UlrichKrühne will supervise it.
The successful candidate will join an innovative, collaborative, internationaland multidisciplinary team, which is a part of the Process and Systemsengineering Research centre (PROSYS) at the Department of Chemical andBiochemical Engineering at DTU.
For a successful development and progress of the BFP, DTU will make use ofmachine learning techniques, mathematical programming and chemical engineeringknowledge to explore relevant relationships for the overall optimization ofbeer fermentation. Thus, one of the goals of this research project is tomeasure and analyse flavours and aromas in beer, by developing and applyingmethods for fast and dependable assessment of ﬂavours in complex mixtures.
Responsibilities and tasks
Consequently, the research activities in the proposed postdoc project, assumethat you are able to:
- Work independently on development of machine learning algorithmsActively participate and take lead on the dissemination of the obtained results, in high-impact scientific journals and in international conferences;Participate in co-supervision of PhD and master students;Participate in writing of project proposals.
Candidates should have a PhD degree or equivalent.
You are expected to have:
- A chemical engineering degree, with a flair for biotechnology (and experience);Strong background in modelling and optimization, especially with extensive knowledge in mathematical programming (PhD on the topic would be preferable);Experience with machine learning techniques, both supervised and unsupervised learning;Experience in process tools and integration;Experience in Matlab, Python and GAMS;Experience in mathematical modelling and optimization is a benefit.Experience with the elaboration and publication of scientific papers in view of successful dissemination of research results.
Furthermore, you thrive in a highly ambitious research centre; you areenthusiastic and a team player, result oriented and structured. Good communicationskills in both written and spoken English are expected.
