Yes....(for the fixed-effects model) if the controls vary within panels (otherwise, they will be collinear to the dummies of the fixed-effects); if you wish to have time invariant controls along with fixed-effects, or you wish to include the fixed-effects in the random-effects estimator you use the "Mundlak" trick--i.e., do not include dummies for the fixed-effects but model the cluster means (at the j level) of all i-level variables.

See: Mundlak, Y. (1978). Pooling of Time-Series and Cross-Section Data. Econometrica, 46(1), 69-85.
