  • 1.  Data Analytics Postdoc Position Available at Argonne National Laboratory

    Posted 10 days ago

    Center for Energy, Environmental, and Economic Systems Analysis (CEEESA) at Argonne National Lab is looking for motivated and qualified candidates in prognostics and data analytics to solve energy challenges.

    The postdoctoral appointee will work with a team of researchers on leveraging data analytics to solve challenging problems in energy sector, such as data-driven asset diagnostics/prognostics, optimization of operations, maintenance, and related logistics. The researcher will perform theoretical study and algorithm development that leverages data analytics for (i) predictive methods in data-driven reliability assessment/degradation modeling, and (ii) develop computational methods and uncertainty models for solving energy optimization problems and publish in peer-reviewed journal/conference publications. The postdoctoral researcher will develop asset management tools that use large-scale industrial data, build ML/optimization software packages and help disseminate research results to academic and industry community, draft research proposals and apply for funding from federal agencies (e.g., the Department of Energy and National Science Foundation), and perform other tasks required for this position.

    Position Requirements

    • A PhD in Industrial Engineering, Operations Research, Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, or other relevant domains.
    • Knowledge and independent research capability in optimization theories, computational algorithms with track records of publications.
    • Proficient in implementing optimization algorithms with mainstream programming languages such as Julia, Python, Java, C/C++, etc.
    • Proficiency in writing scientific research articles and presenting results at academic conferences.
    • A successful candidate must have the ability to model Argonne's Core Values: Impact, Safety, Respect, Integrity, and Teamwork.

    Argonne postdoc positions offer competitive salary, benefits and non-cap H1B sponsor.  CEEESA provides a supportive environment with intellectual freedom to pursue meaningful research as well as support for attending conferences and professional development opportunities.  Postdocs have the opportunity to build experiences in publishing, obtaining funding from federal agencies, and collaborating with other labs, academia and industry, with the possibility of progressing into permanent staff and leadership roles.
