DTU Engineering Technology invites applications for a position as Assistant Professor in embedded systems and electronics in the newly started research group Electronics and Embedded Systems. Here you will contribute to research projects and support research objectives. It is noted, that DTU Engineering Technology focuses on practically oriented and applicable research, i.e., research results must be applicable in relation to companies and teaching, etc. Thus, you will contribute to the interpretation of performed research, conducted research, and the process of transforming this into teaching in one or more of the following areas:
- Optimization of wireless embedded IoT technologies with a high integration factor
- Advanced sensor principles, technologies and implementation
- Intelligent systems for data transformation and information extraction
- Application areas within IoT, such as: smart cities, smart homes, smart grids, industry 4.0, smart transportation systems, telemedicine, etc
- IoT systems that support and promote sustainability, including the UN's global goals
DTU Engineering Technology is located at DTU Ballerup Campus and is part of the Technical University of Denmark. We provide courses and instruction that feed into a number of DTU’s Bachelor in Engineering (BEng) Programmes as well as a range of continuing education formats, including Diploma Programmes. Our approach is research and development-based with a strong focus on professional practice, hands-on experience, problem solving and business readiness, qualifying our graduates to detect, analyse and find solutions to real-world challenges and technical problems across engineering disciplines and in practice-based, complex and development-oriented job functions.
DTU Engineering Technology has an extensive portfolio of industry-university collaborations at both student and faculty level. This forms the basis of our growing research field, technology implementation in engineering and engineering education, which focuses on synthesizing learnings from multiple single cases into the development of new methodology, theory and tools for technology implementation, primarily within the sectors of construction, production and supply infrastructure.
The pedagogical concept of the Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) Programmes is based upon the internationally recognized concept CDIO (Conceive, Design, Implement, Operate). This is a concept DTU has developed in global cooperation with other universities, ensuring that graduates have a high degree of professionalism and strong personal and interpersonal skills taught in an engineering context.
The position is part of DTU’s Tenure Track program. We offer a rewarding and challenging job in an international environment. We strive for academic excellence in an environment characterized by collegial respect and academic freedom tempered by responsibility. We develop talent by offering a career mentor, state-of-the-art research infrastructure, and postgraduate teacher training. DTU’s Tenure Track is an appointment of at most six years, during which you will receive career support in the form of professional and personal guidance. At the end of the tenure track appointment you will be evaluated by an external assessment committee, who will assess your appointment to a permanent Associate Professorship.
