Open Position

Ph.D. Position available in the area of “Control of Energy Storage Systems” at Electrical Engineering, University of Colorado Denver.

Description: Energy storage systems are ubiquitous in modern engineering applications such as electrified transportation, renewable power grids, and consumer electronics. Intelligent management/control of such energy storage systems is essential for safe, reliable and efficient operation. In this context, we are developing real-time control/estimation/diagnostics algorithms for advanced energy storage systems such as batteries, ultracapacitors, and fuel cells. The student is expected to conduct research on one or more of the following areas focused on energy storage systems:

  • State and/or parameter estimation
  • Optimal and/or robust control
  • Fault diagnosis
  • Optimization
  • Experimental studies

The successful Ph.D. applicant will be awarded a competitive scholarship covering both tuition and living expenses.

Expected Start Date: Fall 2018

Ideal Candidates should satisfy the following criteria:

  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree with major/specialization in electrical, mechanical, civil, mechatronics, controls, or any other relevant engineering/science discipline [Master’s degree is preferred but not required]
  • Strong background in linear systems, controls, applied mathematics
  • Strong MATLAB programming experience

If interested, please send an e-mail to Satadru Dey ( with the subject “Ph.D. Position | Energy Storage Controls”. Attach a copy of your transcript(s) and detailed CV.
