Responsibilities and qualifications
The research is conducted at the Center for Fast Ultrasound Imaging (CFU) in the USB section. The focus is on researching advanced ultrasound imaging methods and translate them from the basic acoustics all the way to the clinic. The current emphasis is on super resolution imaging in 2-D and 3-D using synthetic aperture methods for anatomic and flow imaging. The research includes developing estimators and processing methods for beamforming, motion estimation, and image quantification for both traditional arrays as well as CMUT and row-column arrays. Of major importance is the implementation on advanced research scanners and the clinical evaluation in collaboration with hospitals. The scientific contributions, thus, spans from advanced simulations of the acoustics to implementation, laboratory experiments, and validation. It is the expectation that you will be able to contribute with innovative ideas in these fields and be a research leader at the highest international level. This entails guiding PhD students, writing papers and patents, raising research funds for hiring PhD students and postdocs, and maintaining the international level of the research facilities at CFU.

You value visionary and meaningful communication, and you are motivated by delivering and taking the lead in engaging teaching at the BEng, BSc, MSc, and PhD levels. The position will involve teaching in existing courses and developing new relevant course materials by bringing the newest results from your research into our teaching to educate the new generation of engineering graduates within medicine and technology.

Teaching is conducted in collaboration with relevant DTU departments and external partners on topics within advanced ultrasound imaging and general medical imaging. You will develop teaching activities to support DTU’s ambition about having Europe’s best engineering education.

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.

You will be assessed against the responsibilities and qualifications stated above and the following general criteria:

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