Dynamics & Control Specialist
At S[&]T we are specialized in Business solutions for space, science, and defence. We live and breathe innovation, and are one of the few partners that work together with High Tech organizations in optimizing performance through projects on-site or in-house.
Our client, one of the most innovative in the Research field in the Netherlands, is looking for Dynamics & Control Specialist to join their Optomechatronics team in their office in Delft.
As a Dynamics & Control Specialist, you are an expert within the eigenfrequencies and eigenmodes of mechanical structures and have the know-how to process modal analyses to predict dynamic behavior. You are capable of can deriving multi-dimensional lumped-mass models of mechanical systems and can relate these to FEM and experimental results and can validate dynamic performance in practice.
Being familiar with control engineering terminology and knowing the basics of linear control theory and controller synthesis, both in the classical and mathematical sense, is definitely important, as you are able to think in the frequency domain and have the know-how to interpret Bode diagrams and Nyquist plots, relating these to the mechanical properties of the system.
You know how to loop-shaping techniques, assess the resulting closed-loop behavior of the whole system for both models and real systems, and recognize the dynamic error budgeting techniques.
It is also preferable that you have some experience with non-linear dynamics, and you can formulate and analyze specific nonlinearities in mechanical systems or new system concepts. Besides, you manage to translate the results into practical solutions. Adding to this, you understand more advanced synthesis techniques such as robust and adaptive control.
Master’s Degree, and preferably a Ph.D Degree, in the fields of Mechanical or Electrical Engineering with a focus on dynamics and control
4+ years of experience in the field whether in academia or industry
Fluency in English, both written and spoken
Keen on embracing scientific and engineering challenges
Team-player attitude that enjoys working with multidisciplinary teams, cooperating, and sharing knowledge among your team members
Solution-maker mindset able to communicate clearly and effectively with your colleagues and the company’s clients
