Lighthouse offers occasional opportunities for researchers to use our data and methods while preparing academic papers or doctoral dissertations. We have a summer vacancy for a researcher with skills in optimisation, discrete time systems and linear multi-variable control systems. The research fellow will be based at our London headquarters from June 15th until September 18th.
Applicants should have graduate and masters degrees in an Engineering subject or in Mathematics, Physics or Computer Science as well as an appetite for solving the problems of non-expert users. Prior work experience in technology-driven multinationals, customer-facing work and proven ability in system modelling and design, MATLAB and C++ will be advantageous. Preference will be given to doctoral candidates at London universities. Candidates with only limited post-doctoral experience and those who are becoming established scholars in their field may also apply.
Fellows benefit from shared office space, internet and telephone, printing, photocopying and computer facilities, free access to our events, and access to the university libraries and other facilities at South Bank.
The main function of the non-stipendiary fellowship is to offer researchers who have already secured external funding at a London university the chance to participate in business life and enjoy the application of their skills to live business problems. Applicants must therefore have external funding support for the period.
To apply for this opportunity, please send your covering letter and CV to email@example.com. Because of the high number of applications for these roles, we are not able to acknowledge every application. Please do not telephone.
