Openings for Research Scientist Positions

Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, Moscow, Russia invites applicants for a postdoctoral position of research scientist in the interdisciplinary area of Applied Math and Computational Science broadly defined, with an emphasis on applications to Power Systems for a period of up to 3 years.

Job Description

The candidate is expected to conduct research in the area of interest and in collaboration with other members of Skoltech Center for Energy Systems. Successful candidates will have considerable freedom in pursuing their research interests.

Priority Research Areas

Complexity of modern Power Systems requires an ever-increasing sophistication of theoretical methods to support their safe and effective operation and control. Skoltech Center for Energy System is a hub for development of new original mathematical approaches to analyze and control Power Systems. Current topics of interest include static and dynamic stability, assessment of risk, and data-driven analysis. Underlying mathematical methods vary greatly depending on the project and range from optimization methods and mathematical modeling to algebraic geometry and machine learning. We especially encourage to apply applicants with expertise or strong interest in one of the following topics:

Numerical and Computational Methods
Dynamical stability
Mathematical Optimization and Mathematical Programming (convex optimization, LMI)
Convex geometry
Machine Learning
Statistics and stochastic processes
The work requires close collaboration with MIT in the area of mathematical modeling and optimization.

Minimal Qualifications

Successful candidates will have

a PhD in mathematics, applied mathematics, computer science, theoretical physics, or similar discipline
experience of conducting independent research at graduate level
How to apply:

Interested candidates should send their curriculum vitae, a publication list, a research statement, and reprints of a few selected publications and arrange for 3 recommendation letters to be sent, to Polina Rumyantseva (p.rumyantseva@skoltech.ru). Please include in the Subject Line: YourLastName Application for Postdoctoral Position.

The position is available immediately, and the starting date is negotiable. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Selected applicants will receive a highly competitive compensation package (salary commensurate with experience, qualifications and previous publication record, housing allowance in case relocation to Moscow will be needed, medical insurance). Excellent travel and computing support will be provided. For further information, including research-related questions, please contact Dr. Anatoly Dymarsky (dymarsky@skoltech.ru).
