Postdoctoral Researcher in Optimisation under Uncertainty for Energy Systems Planning

Postdoctoral Researcher in Optimisation under Uncertainty for Energy Systems Planning

Aalto University - Department of Mathematics and Systems Analysis

Espoo and Helsinki, Finland

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:

  • Modelling and assessing flexibility alternatives in the Nordics and Europe;
  • Investigating market power shifts in the presence of storage alternatives and transmission expansion;
  • Modelling welfare maximization in competitive market settings.

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.

Requirements

We are looking for scholars who can demonstrate:

  • To be completing (by the end of 2019), or have completed within the past 5 years, their doctoral studies in a relevant field of study (Operations Research, Applied Mathematics, Industrial Engineering, Computer Science or related fields);
  • Strong background in optimisation/mathematical programming and demonstrable research expertise in the field of energy systems planning;
  • Experience in some of the following topics: parallel computing, decomposition methods, stochastic programming, and robust optimization;
  • An excellent command of English language, both spoken and written.
