Assistant Professor (UD) in Energy TechnologyPosted by: University of Twente
Posted date: 2018-Jun-20
Important basic disciplines for you, as the new Assistant Professor in our group, involve thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, heat, momentum and mass transfer, energy conversion and storage as well as process technology in general. Your research quality has to be excellent, leading to both high-quality scientific publications and applications in industry as relevant for society. This requires high-level experimental and theoretical research, design and development of new computational tools and advanced thermal technologies. Examples of possible research subjects that you can execute are thermodynamic cycles, thermal conversion, renewable energy sources and especially solar heat and thermal hybrid PVT, new generation heat pumps, new energy storage concepts, contributions to the energy transition, etc.
Education and research are coupled and therefore you, as a member of our TFE department, will be involved in both the BSc- and MSc-programmes of Mechanical Engineering, the MSc-programme of Sustainable Energy Technology (SET), and the PDEng-programme Energy and Process Technology which is a 2 years post-master designer programme. You will have a major contribution in the education tasks of the TFE department.
We would like you to have:
You are a highly motivated and enthusiastic researcher with a PhD degree in mechanical engineering or comparable engineering backgrounds, with well-developed communication and project-management skills. A few years of (international) experience as postdoctoral researcher, and a significant publication record and teaching experience are a prerequisite. You can contribute to excellence in the field of thermal engineering, including experimental work as well as modelling.
Because women are still a minority in a number of fields, they are warmly invited to apply.Information and application
