DTU Engineering Technology invites applicants for a position as Associate Professor/Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in Electrical Power Systems and Components. You will join the research group “Electric Energy”, which currently consists of seven colleagues with a mix of research and industry experience. In this group, we possess a robust research and development foundation that aims to facilitate the green transition and decarbonization of society through collaboration with industry. Our group’s research encompasses the operation, control, and testing of low- and high-voltage electrical grids, integration of renewable energy into smart grids and microgrids, and the assurance of electricity supply security and quality.
The ideal candidate is expected to be an experienced researcher with experimental background and a strong track-record in most of the following topics:
- High-voltage components and systems
- Short-circuit tests and analyses
- Transient phenomena in power systems
- Protection systems and switchgears
- Implementation processes and lab testing of high-voltage and high-power AC systems and components
Responsibilities and qualifications
DTU Engineering Technology provides 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. We have a strong focus on technology implementation, hands-on experience, and problem solving. This approach drives our research and teaching, while we aim to qualify our graduates to detect, analyse and find solutions to the real-world problems. The pedagogical concept is based upon the internationally recognized concept Conceive-Design-Implement-Operate (CDIO).
Your primary tasks will be:
- Teaching courses and supervising student projects linking theoretical foundation with experimental tests and industrial collaborations
- Contributing to the development of the research group including funding, research, innovation, lab facilities expansion and PhD supervision
- Scientific management and technical coordination of industrial tests in High-Voltage and High-Power Labs at DTU Engineering Technology
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 a PhD degree (or equivalent). If you are applying for the associate professor position, you should also have academic qualifications equivalent to those obtained by holding an assistant professorship and documented didactic/pedagogic training.
