Are you a game changer?
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. The Laboratory has an opening for a new academic staff member. There is a preference for profiles that carry research experience in power electronics hardware related topics, however, applicants from all areas of Power Electronics and across different seniority levels will be considered.
The focus will be on fresh and innovative ideas, a compelling vision for shaping the research landscape over the next ten years, and a track record of delivering. 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.
The position is open immediately, but the start date is flexible.
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 Electromechanics and Power Electronics (EPE) group has one of the most advanced electromechanics and power electronics laboratories in the Netherlands. 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.
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.
Eindhoven University of Technology is a top-ranking Dutch university that combines scientific curiosity with a hands-on attitude. Our spirit of collaboration translates into an open culture and a number 1 position in collaborating with advanced industries. Fundamental knowledge enables us to design solutions for the highly complex problems of today and tomorrow.
