The Department of Thermal and Fluid Engineering at the University of Twente is currently seeking for an Assistant Professor in advanced heating and cooling technologies for industry and the built environment.
We are concerned with questions related to advanced applications of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, reactions and new materials.
Using a combined approach of theoretical analysis, numerical calculations and experimental investigations, the department aims to develop new and advanced knowledge for applications in industry and the built environment.
Priority is given to the efficient use of energy and the minimization of environmental impact of our future energy systems
Highly flexible heating and cooling technologies that adapt their operation to the supply of green electricity will play an important role in the energy transition of the coming years, using carbon-free electrical energy to heat and cool our homes, offices, and to provide heat and cold for industrial applications.
Your research may focus on the optimization and / or integration of heat pump systems, but also on the development of new advanced heating and cooling technologies based on e.
g., thermoacoustic, magnetocaloric, adsorptive, chemical and thermomechanical principles. We have a well-equipped laboratory for experimental research and powerful computing facilities for numerical research.
You will also be involved in teaching of courses on BSc- and MSc-level (e.g. Energy Conversion Technology, Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer, Energy systems) and the supervision of students for their assignments.
Are you ready to contribute to a sustainable future with new advanced energy technologies in the built environment and industry?
You will be appointed for two years, with the prospect of a permanent position after a positive evaluation within a very stimulating scientific environment.
The university offers a dynamic ecosystem with enthusiastic colleagues in which internationalization is an important part of the strategic agenda.
