In the Power Electronics Laboratory (PELe) of the Electromechanics and Power Electronics group at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), we are attempting a change in the way Power Electronics research is viewed and conducted. Would you like to join our Laboratory to become a significant contributor to this change? We are looking for a new academic staff member. Although there is a preference for candidates that have research experience in power electronics hardware related topics, we are open to other power electronics related topics as well. Surprise us! We welcome applicants from all areas of Power Electronics and across different seniority levels.
The focus will be on fresh and innovative ideas. Your compelling vision for shaping the research landscape over the next ten years, along with your track record of delivering will be essential. Next to your research quality, your educational skills are very important as you will develop and teach Power Electronics courses at both undergraduate and graduate level.
TU/e research towards 2030
TU/e has identified Complex ‘High Tech Systems’ and ‘Renewable Energy’ as two of the key multi-disciplinary research opportunities in the taskforce TU/e 2030. Power Electronic Systems play an enabling role in these domains. There is an ongoing initiative, both at the university level and the department level, to strengthen the research and education in these directions.
Electromechanics and Power Electronics Group
The research in the EPE group has strongly grown in the past years because of the industrial demands for innovative and energy-saving conversion systems. The research has been greatly supported by the national and international programs. The research in the group is carried out in three main directions:
This research lines address applications across a broad range of industries, such as high-precision motion systems for the semiconductor and biomedical industries, fast car charging and on-board energy management for automotive and e-mobility, electric drives for industrial applications, grid-connected power electronics for power quality, and others.
The Electromechanics and Power Electronics (EPE) group has one of the most advanced electromechanics and power electronics laboratories in the Netherlands (680+ m2 floor space). It contains state-of-the-art facilities for testing and validation of electromechanical and power electronic systems. Moreover, the group has a leading role in establishing the Eindhoven Grid Laboratory (EGL) of the TU/e, a multi-million research facility with Medium Voltage capabilities that couples power electronics with electrolysis systems for Hydrogen production, in a unique environment for end-to-end research in electrochemical energy conversion.
A meaningful job in a dynamic and ambitious university, in an interdisciplinary setting and within an international network. You will work on a beautiful, green campus within walking distance of the central train station. In addition, we offer you:
Eindhoven University of Technology is an internationally top-ranking university in the Netherlands that combines scientific curiosity with a hands-on attitude. Our spirit of collaboration translates into an open culture and a top-5-position in collaborating with advanced industries. Fundamental knowledge enables us to design solutions for the highly complex problems of today and tomorrow.
