Postdoctoral Researcher (Optimization and Machine Learning for Power Systems)
The SCHOOL OF ELECTRICAL AND COMPUTER ENGINEERING at CORNELL UNIVERSITY, Ithaca, New York, is seeking exceptional candidates with expertise in optimization, control, and/or machine learning to join our lab as a postdoctoral researcher.
