Are you a researcher with a strong focus on multi-physical numerical modeling technique? Would you like to be part of one of the leading institutes in electromechanics research? Your research will be contributing to specialized, unconventional, and high-performing electromechanical actuation systems for high-tech semicon, medical, transport, and energy conversion systems. In this position, your research will keep pushing the physical limits of such actuation systems to meet and realize the ever-increasing demands from industry and society.
Electromechanics and Power Electronics Group (EPE)
The EPE group is one of the nine research groups of the Department of Electrical Engineering. The group is the main center for research in electromechanical power conversion and power electronics in the Netherlands. The four research tracks of the group are high-tech motion systems and robotics, power electronics systems, smart mobility, and advanced modeling. Furthermore, the group is actively participating in the EAISI program as well as being one of the founders of the Cyber-Physical Systems Center (CPSe) in which all computation and mechatronic knowledge of TU/e will be bundled for tackling problems around e-grids, e-mobility, and high-tech systems applications.
This group has the most advanced electromechanics and power electronics laboratories in the Netherlands (680+ m2 floor space). It contains modern facilities for testing and validation of electromechanical and power electronic systems including, various permanent magnet and reluctance rotary and spherical motors, highly accurate linear and planar magnetic levitation systems, high-voltage, and superconducting actuators.
The research output of the group is well known for the state-of-the-art numerical modeling techniques for both 2D and 3D systems. These are based on harmonic models, magnetic charge models, magnetic equivalent circuits, spectral elements, isogeometric analysis, and hybrid combinations of these models.
The EPE group is looking for an assistant professor (tenure track) who will perform research into advanced cyber-physical electromechanical systems with a strong focus on multi-physical numerical modeling. The tasks are to:
Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) is ranked as one of the most innovative universities located in the heart of the high-tech industry in the Netherlands, the Brainport region. The unique positioning in one of Europe’s leading tech regions also means excellent job opportunities for spouses. TU/e actively facilitates career opportunities for partners of successful candidates. Eindhoven is the fifth largest city in the Netherlands, and including suburbs, it has about 420,000 inhabitants.
Our training and research programs are highly regarded, and we foster close relationships with companies, organizations, and research institutes in the Brainport region and beyond. Fundamental and applied research are equally valued here. The high rank of the TU/e is due to the impact of its scientific research and also to its scientific co-publications with industry. TU/e is a social and inspiring university with a vibrant culture. Surrounded by people who share your scientific ambitions, we translate our basic research into meaningful solutions. The TU/e currently has nine departments, with over 11,000 students in total.
