The department’s relationship with the high-tech industry in the Brainport region means that staff and students can contribute directly to the development of technological innovations with real-world relevance. The unique positioning in one of Europe’s leading tech regions also means excellent job opportunities for spouses.
Research in Electrical Engineering: ambition meets opportunity in Eindhoven
The department has identified three focus areas (“zwaartepunten”) in research in Electrical Engineering:
Our nine disciplinary-oriented capacity groups in the department participate in one or more of these focus areas.
This results in the following vacant position:
Assistant Professor in “High-tech Multi-physics Systems & Control”
The modeling, control and analysis of high-tech systems requires an increasing coupling of different physical fields and different physical properties of processes in engineered systems. Electromechanical, thermal, thermo-fluidic, optical and chemical properties of materials need to be understood simultaneously and in terms of their mutual interaction. This position aims at providing novel tools to facilitate the integration and abstraction of multi-physics phenomena as they occur in the high-tech industry. Strong interaction with industrial partners in the high-tech sector will warrant the relevance of the research.
What we are looking for
We seek to appoint academic staff in the three focus areas who are passionate about research as well as teaching. We welcome excellent candidates that can contribute to any of our current areas as well as candidates that bring new research directions to the department. We have openings at all levels, ranging from tenure track assistant professor positions, to associate and full professor positions. The working language in the department and across the university is English. There is no requirement to speak Dutch for applying for these positions.
An important aspect of TU/e’s vision on education is that research and education go hand in hand, both at Bachelor and Master level. Next to your research, education is an important part of your job. The TU/e helps its scientific staff to further develop their teaching skills by offering a training program that leads to an official teaching certification from Dutch Universities (University Teaching Qualification).
Furthermore, we require:
