Positions for Postdoctoral Researchers in Mechanical Engineering
We seek highly qualified and motivated individuals with enthusiastic attitude towards high-quality research to work as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Mechanical Engineering. The positions are for a period of 3-years, with a mid-term review by the end of the first 12-months, and should start on 1st August 2023. The positions are intended for full-time work.
Positions are part of a larger funding scheme from the Department of Mechanical Engineering that covers altogether 3 positions in the current call. The Postdoctoral Researcher’s principal task is to conduct high-quality and multidisciplinary research in one of the following main research focus, or strategic flagships, of the department:
Sustainable Energy Vectors
- Encompassing hydrogen-based vectors in power-to-x and x-to-power applications.
- Encompassing both experimental and numerical modelling, with ice and/or cold climate as key-element.
Digital Twin World
- Encompassing digitalization applied to materials science and/or manufacturing and/or product design.
Teaching duties of the position are limited to about 10% of working hours and maybe related to Bachelor and/or Master’s programs of the Department. In addition, some activity in fund raising and advising doctoral and master students is also expected. In specific, during the 3-years period, the postdoc in each of the three strategic flagships, will have funding to hire four to eight master students (6-months period each). These master students will be co-operationalizing the postdoc’s research plan, locally at each of the four areas of research focus of the Department of Mechanical Engineering.
