Postdoc position on Digital Twin for real-time monitoring and anomaly detection of complex systems

Your mission :
The objective is a monitoring tool for complex mechanic systems that detects precursors of potential failure mechanisms, and proposes the safest set of actions to avoid failure in real time with the minimum necessary number of probes. The idea of this project is to establish a very fast digital twin of the tested machine that captures all the relevant physical phenomena and their links by combining mathematically-based and data-driven surrogate models. The digital twin will then be used for real-time assessment of new data collected during operation of the machine and their deviation from the predicted behavior.

Your mission is the development, implementation and testing of this digital twin.

Start date : As soon as possible

Postdoc position: “Edge AI Devices for DigiPredict, Exposome and Beyond”

Your mission :
The successful candidate will lead innovative research projects in a stimulating, open, and international research environment with a highly talented and motivated team, embedded in a strong network of academic and industrial collaborators.
The candidate will work in collaboration with 3 labs on program co-funded by the EPFL Center for Intelligent Systems (CIS):

  • David Atienza (STI), head of the Embedded Systems Laboratory (ESL),
  • Adrian Ionescu (STI), head of The Nanoelectronic Devices Laboratory (NANOLAB),
  • Martin Jaggi (IC), head of Machine Learning and Optimization Laboratory (MLO).

This Postdoc will be affiliated
by to two of these EPFL laboratories (NANOLAB and ESL), and will work in cooperation with additional international medical partners. The topic to be developed in this post-doctoral position is multidisciplinary and includes the linking between Nanolab and ESL through the development of edge AI systems from the software mapping and architecture to the inclusion of new sensors and technologies.

Start date : The starting date is flexible, but an earlier start date is preferred.
