The Department of Mathematics and Systems Analysis at the School of Science is seeking a Postdoctoral researcher in Optimisation under Uncertainty for Energy Systems Planning to work in Prof. Fabricio Oliveira’s research group. The group’s research is focused on developing models and methods for analysing energy systems and exploring potential development pathways in face of more stringent carbon emission limits and the expansion of intermittent renewable generation. In particular, the group’s research concentrates on understanding how policy shifts, market settings, technological developments, among other aspects, can influence the transition to a more (environmentally) sustainable energy system. To achieve this objective, we develop and employ models based on data-driven adaptive/robust optimization, stochastic programming combined with efficient computational methods based on decomposition and parallelization. Some of the current themes our group has been working on includes but are not limited to:
The selected applicant will contribute to the research activities in the group (i.e., publishing papers, participating in events and in grant applications, and co-supervising students) and collaborate with other partners institutes in Finland and abroad. Opportunities for teaching and self-development (courses and training offered by Aalto) are also available.
We are looking for scholars who can demonstrate:
