The Faculty of Engineering Technology at the University of Twente is currently seeking to appoint full professor in the area of Computational Design of Structural Materials. The position contributes to work in the Department Mechanics of Solids, Surfaces & Systems (MS3), in the area of micro-mechanics-based material design and optimisation.
The new research chair addresses the relations between the microstructures and the macroscopic properties of a wide range of engineering materials, including metals, polymers and composites.
The research chair aims to develop and utilize advanced numerical techniques to describe process-structure-property relations for heterogeneous and polycrystalline structural materials, with the objective to propose new material designs with improved properties in terms of performance and processing.
The research chair will have access to and collaborate with the ThermoPlastic composites Research Centre, a leading and unique international research institute on thermoplastic composites (www.tprc.nl). The TPRC is a is a public private partnership, bringing together experts in the field focusing on increasing knowledge of these materials and of their behaviour, product design and processing technologies. University of Twente is a host institution of the TPRC.
Working in close cooperation with the other professors in the Faculty and Department, the candidate will play a leading and inspiring role in strengthen and broaden our fundamental research portfolio and teaching programs in (structural) material engineering. As such, applicants will be selected based on their potential to initiate and lead novel scientific research, develop and contribute to modern educational programs and invest in international networks. Thus, the successful appointee will be expected to:
The university offers a dynamic ecosystem with enthusiastic colleagues in which internationalization is an important part of the strategic agenda.
