Do you have academic or industry experience with technology implementation of mechanical engineering, leadership ambitions and talent for collaborating with industry, researchers, and students?
We offer a rewarding and challenging job in an international environment. We strive for academic excellence in a work climate characterized by collegial respect and academic freedom tempered by responsibility. We develop talent by offering a career mentor, state-of-the-art research infrastructure, and postgraduate teacher training.
Responsibilities and qualifications
Your overall focus will be contributing to DTU’s strategic aim towards being Europe’s best engineering education. We provide courses and instruction that feed into a number of DTU’s Bachelor in Engineering Programmes (BEng) as well as a range of continuing education formats, including Diploma Programmes. Our approach is research and development-based with a strong focus on practice, hands-on experience, and problem solving. This approach drives our research as well as our teaching, while we aim to qualify our graduates to detect, analyse and find solutions to the real-world problems of the digital transformation and a sustainable future. The pedagogical concept and the BEng programmes are based upon the internationally recognized concept CDIO.
Your primary tasks will be:
- Take leadership in defining the research strategy for the group, that answers future’s need for technology implementation within mechanical engineering with focus on mechanisms, materials and process technologies
- Create teams and pull in contributions to make excellent research
- Take leadership at different stages of project development, including the seeding of ideas to identify scientific knowledge gaps of relevance and match with funding opportunities
- Execute multidisciplinary projects with diverse team members from different institutions
- Lead your research topic area and be highly visible in the international networks of relevance though publications and collaborations.
- Teaching courses and supervising student projects within Mechanical Engineering
You must be responsible for the teaching of courses. DTU employs two working languages: Danish and English. You are expected to be fluent in at least one of these languages, and in time are expected to master both.
As formal qualification you must hold an MSc or a PhD degree (or equivalent) as well as academic qualifications equivalent to those obtained by holding an assistant professorship and documented didactic/pedagogic training.
