Czech Technical University in Prague now offers a new fellowship program, the CTU Global Postdoc Fellowship. This new and attractive two-year fellowship-program offers excellent researchers who have recently completed their PhD the chance to continue their research career at CTU. Fellows receive a two year fellowship and become members of a team led by a mentor.
Control of vibration and motion of flexible mechanical systems is a difficult task due to many/infinite number of DOFs. Two promising approaches are proposed: multiple frequency absorber by time-delay feedback control (improvement of delayed resonator) and/or wavebased control. Both delayed resonator and wave-based control are well established control concepts. The proposed research is to investigate new advanced modifications of these concepts. The open problem for delayed resonator is to reach solution with direct design procedure ideally tunable in real time as well as experimental demonstration of its tuning. There are proposed several approaches how to reach that: discretized delayed system or replacement of delay by time derivatives. The wave-based control has demonstrated impressive result in stable and motion of many flexible mechanical systems. The open problem is how to apply this control to any flexible mechanical system. The condition of stability has been derived. And this condition can be used for enlargement of flexible systems that can be stably controlled by wave-based control. The proposed approach is to use frequency shaped feedback instead of simple one. Both topics promise interesting research and publication opportunities.

The fellowship aims primarily at external international scientists who are currently conducting research abroad. Applicants must have completed their PhD within the last seven years (eg. 2015 or later). The fellowship aims at authors (co-authors) of two or more publications in a journal with IF. The mentor has a strong vote in the selection process.
Applications should be sent to: email@example.com
