Are you passionate about Acoustics of Complex engineering systems? Is it your aspiration to function in a multi-disciplinary research environment? Do you have a strong affinity with application domains related to mechanical engineering? We seek an enthusiastic early career researcher who has the ambition to build their own research group, while encouraging a collaborative network with other academics working on the topic within the section, the department, the university and industry.
Excessive noise levels affect the economic and technological development of western countries in many ways. Overexposure to noise can lead to for example hart infarcts, high blood pressure or bad learning performance. As a consequence, noise regulations impose increasingly strict demands on noise emissions of transportation systems, machinery and consumer products (from cars to electric toothbrushes). At the same time, vibrations and acoustics can be a threat to the integrity and accurate operation of many engineered systems causing failure of sophisticated systems like turbines and limiting the performance of high-tech precision machinery. A complicating factor in the process of developing and implementing low-noise solutions is that in most applications the acoustic performance of the system is not the primary performance goal.
This research theme provides ample opportunity for fundamental, interdisciplinary research and valorization in a wide range of applications, many of which are strongly rooted in the Dutch high-tech & manufacturing industry, and the energy and transportation sectors.
You should have a proven background on at least one of the areas mentioned below:
Knowledge on relevant application domains such as, for example, transport systems, health applications, smart industry and energy, and experience with experimental validation is strongly appreciated.
We understand acoustics and vibrations as a key aspect of the dynamic behavior of engineering systems. Within the Dynamics and Control section of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, we foster the vision that the fruitful synergy between the fields of dynamical systems and control is highly beneficial in tackling the future societal and industrial challenges in the fields of high-tech systems, mobility, sustainability and health.
The main research areas at the Dynamics & Control section are: non-linear dynamics of mechanical systems, structural acoustics and noise control, non-linear control of mechanical systems, robotics, vehicle and tyre dynamics and control, and mechanical design.
