PhD position on model driven systems integrationPosted by: University of Twente
Posted date: 2019-Dec-20
The prime objective for this project is building an integration framework for the railway system. As a researcher, you need to conduct scientific research on integration beyond the combination of system elements. The focus is on challenges for design, operation, and management of interorganizational systems. Within this project, you will have the opportunity to participate in the development of the integration platform which is able to properly store, effectively share, and optimally use the available knowledge for decision-making purposes. With the support of industrial partners, you deal with real challenges in the complex, dynamic, and multi partner environment of the rail sector, and you will be able to develop your model and continuously test it in the industrial context and improve the outcome. This project is the result of collaboration between University of Twente, ProRail, Netherlands Railways, and High Tech Materials and Systems (HTSM).
You will be able to present or publish your results at international conferences and journals. You will have the possibility to lead master students who do their final assignment on sub projects pertaining to your research.
You have obtained a MSc in Systems Engineering or another filed relevant to the position with interest in management and leadership. You have experience in model driven approaches, user interface design, and co-engineering practices. Prior knowledge and experience in system and software engineering, system safety practices or implementation of safety standards is a plus.
We welcome strong communication skills and interests for sharing knowledge, presenting at conferences and (project) meetings, and publication in peer-reviewed journals. Fluency in English is required, both spoken and written. Fluency in Dutch is an advantage.
The PhD project will be executed at the faculty of Engineering Technology under the Design, Production and Management (DPM) department, a team of approximately 65 academics and PhD’s which deal with the topics including but not limited to Human-Centered Design, Integrated Life Cycle Management, Multidisciplinary System Design and Maintenance.
