Power Grid Modeling Research using Julia (Los Alamos National Lab)

Come join the best and brightest minds in the world at one of the most innovative and creative multidisciplinary research institutions engaged in strategic science on behalf of national security. The work we do at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) matters to our country and the world.

The Information Sciences and Modeling group is looking for outstanding candidates in the field of electrical engineering. The researcher will support projects that are focused on solving emerging and challenging problems in the areas of phase unbalanced power distribution systems and microgrid modeling, simulation, and analysis using Julia. The candidate is expected to work in an interdisciplinary environment with significant collaborative research. A successful candidate is expected to publish in peer reviewed journals and present their research at high profile conferences and workshops.

This position is part of LANL’s Advanced Network Science Initiative. We perform basic and applied research focused on modeling and understanding the nation’s critical infrastructures, such as electric power and natural gas. Our expertise covers statistics, stochastic methods, machine learning, control theory, dynamical systems, discrete and continuous optimization, statistical physics, and graphical modeling. We ensure the scientific and technological validity of our approaches by working closely with physicists, engineers, mathematicians, statisticians, computer scientists, and economists through interdisciplinary collaborations.

We have two open positions at the level of Postdoc and Scientist. See the specific requirements at and apply at https://lanl.jobs:
