DTU Tenure Track Researcher in Topology Optimization of Architected Materials and Structures - DTU Construct
Kgs. Lyngby, Denmark
Job Description

Applications are invited for a DTU Tenure Track Researcher starting summer of 2024 within the field of shape and topology optimization at the Department of Civil and Mechanical Engineering, Technical University of Denmark (the TopOpt group ). The project is funded through the Villum Investigator Project AMSTRAD granted by the Villum Foundation.
AMSTRAD is a six-year research project aimed at developing advanced numerical inverse design tools that allow for systematic investigation and design of materials and structures with disorder and defects, either by design or as introduced by non-perfect manufacturing processes. The research projects involve modelling and design of non-linear multiphysics systems and structures as well as realization using additive manufacturing techniques and experiments.
Responsibilities and qualifications
The project involves extensive development and implementation of numerical algorithms for shape and topology optimization. Hence, it is a prerequisite that candidates can document extensive experience with non-linear finite element programming to receive full consideration. Preference will be given to candidates with documented experience in several of the following areas: computational solid mechanics; finite element methods; multiphysics modeling, numerical optimization methods; shape and/or topology optimization.
We envision that:

  • You have an open mind and can think creatively in mathematical, mechanical and programming contexts
  • You are eager to elaborate on the newest research results, improve the ideas, and test them by implementation
  • Your research will include extending and contributing to various in-house codes, including the development of our parallel computing framework based on the PETSc library using the c++ computing language as well as interactive design platforms on mobile devices
  • You know and have in-depth experience within topology optimization and nonlinear finite element analysis and are committed to improving state-of-the-art 
  • You preferably have insights into uncertainty modelling and modelling of random materials and structures

You must contribute to 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).
You will be assessed against the responsibilities and qualifications stated above and the following general criteria: 

  • Research experience
  • Experience and quality of teaching 
  • Research vision and potential
  • International impact and experience 
  • Societal impact
  • Innovativeness, including commercialization and collaboration with industry
  • Leadership, collaboration, and interdisciplinary skills
  • Communication skills

Salary and terms of employment 
The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed upon with the relevant union.  Starting date is July 2024 (or according to mutual agreement). The position is a full-time position. 
The position is part of DTU’s Tenure Track program. Read more about the program and the recruitment process here .

Application procedure
Your complete online application must be submitted no later than 28 April 2024 (23:59 Danish time). Applications must be submitted as one PDF file containing all materials to be given consideration. To apply, please open the link "Apply now", fill out the online application form, and attach all your materials in English in one PDF file. The file must include:

  • Application (cover letter)
  • Vision for teaching and research for the tenure track period 
  • CV including employment history, list of publications, H-index and ORCID (see http://orcid.org/ )
  • Teaching portfolio  including documentation of teaching experience 
  • Academic Diplomas (MSc/PhD)

Applications received after the deadline will not be considered.
All interested candidates irrespective of age, gender, disability, race, religion or ethnic background are encouraged to apply.
