Duration: 3 y        Workload: 100%
Duties: The purpose of this post is to develop novel statistical and computational methods to track the transmission of bacterial pathogens using genomic data. Bacterial pathogens are responsible for some of the deadliest human diseases such as tuberculosis, tetanus, meningitis, pneumonia or even stomach cancer. Understanding the evolution and epidemiology of these bacterial pathogens is therefore of major biomedical importance. In particular, a good understanding of transmission routes is necessary to design control measures that can effectively limit the number of individuals becoming infected

Department: Department of Electrical Engineering; Centre for Electric Power and Energy
Duration: 1+1 y
Duties: Forecasting of renewable energy generation has evolved from placing emphasis on single wind farms and solar power plants, with limited amount of data as input, to directly predict generation at a large number of sites (tens for portfolio management and hundreds for network management) with massive amount of varied data as input. While predictions were mainly issued in a deterministic framework a few years ago, today one expects a complete probabilistic description of future power generation at each and every site of interest, but also of dependencies among sites and lead times. The objective is to build on recent research works and achievements in the development of large-scale datasets and open-source platforms for wind and solar power forecasting. This will translate to proposing cutting-edge methodological developments for simultaneously predicting power generation at hundreds to thousands of sites
Minimum Requirements: Candidates should have a PhD or equivalent. Consideration will be given to documented experience (at high international level) with at least one of the following topics: nonlinear and high-dimensional modeling with application to energy analytics and market-related problems; modeling and forecasting of renewable energy generation (or electric load, market prices, etc.); programming skills in one or more of the following: R, Python, Matlab
