The European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant "DyCon - Dynamic Control", coordinated by Enrique Zuazua, aims to develop a multifold research agenda in the broad area of Control of Partial Differential Equations (PDE) and their numerical approximation methods to contribute with new key theoretical methods and results and computational software.

Description The Chair of Computational Mathematics led by E. Zuazua of the DeustoTech Research Center in Bilbao (Basque Country, Spain) offers a postdoctoral position to carry out mathematical and computational research, with excellent facilities within a world-wide academic and industrial-technological network. The duration of the contract is of 12 months, with a possible extension to one more year. The chosen postdoc researcher will carry out mathematical and/or computational research on some of the main scientific priorities of DYCON in a multidisciplinary and international environment. The duration of the contract is of 12 months, with a possible extension to one more year. This position is funded by the European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant “DYCON – Dynamic Control”. This project identifies six key topics:


  • Control of parameter dependent problems
  • Long finite time horizon control
  • Control under constraints
  • Inverse design of time-irreversible models
  • Memory models and hybrid PDE/ODE models
  • The links between finite and infinite-dimensional dynamical systems and gathering all contributions to develop a Computational Software platform
