Associate/Full Professor in Advanced Electromechanical Systems
Would you like to be part of one of the leading institutes in electromechanics
research? Contributing to specialized, unconventional, and high-performing
electromechanical actuation systems for high-tech semicon, medical, transport,
and energy conversion systems? In this position, your research will keep
pushing the physical limits of such actuation systems to meet and realize the
ever-increasing demands from industry and society.
This unique opportunity gives you the chance to live and work in one of the
most powerful technology hubs in the world: Brainport Eindhoven. Globally, we
stand out when it comes to collaboration with advanced industries. Together
with the university-wide institutes (e.g. EAISI and EIRES), we form a
thriving ecosystem with one common aim – to improve the quality of life
through sustainable innovations. Setting up strong, strategic collaborations
within TU/e and with industry in the areas of high-tech systems, health,
energy, and mobility are enabled through our involvement in these institutes.
This provides the opportunity to expand your network to other groups and
departments at TU/e. In addition, you will be linked to the external network
of companies, research organizations, funding agencies, and collaborative
As a newly appointed faculty member, you will be working in the
Electromechanics and Power Electronics (EPE) group at Eindhoven University
of Technology (TU/e). Next to your research quality, your educational skills
are very important as you will develop and teach courses at both undergraduate
and graduate level.
We look forward to welcoming electromechanical and mechatronics scientists
with either a strong electrical or mechanical background, complemented with
electromagnetics expertise. The knowledge of advanced materials, energy
conversion engineering, and modern IT tools would be an added value. We see
future electromechanical systems as a part of cyber-physical systems, and with
these competences, you are well-equipped to contribute to formulating our
corresponding scientific and educational roadmap.
Electromechanics and Power Electronics Group
The Electromechanics and Power Electronics (EPE) group has the most advanced
electromechanics and power electronics laboratories in the Netherlands (680+
m2 floor space). It contains the state-of-the-art facilities for testing and
validation of electromechanical and power electronic systems: Various
permanent magnet and reluctance rotary and spherical motors; highly accurate
linear and planar magnetic levitation systems; high-voltage and
superconducting actuators; electromagnetic suspension and vibration-isolation
systems; high-speed and flux-switching machines, and; integrated actuation and
wireless energy-transfer systems, with a wide variety of power electronic
converters with advanced embedded control.
The EPE group is one of the nine research groups of the Department of
Electrical Engineering at TU/e. The group is the main center for research in
electromechanical power conversion and power electronics in the Netherlands.
The five research tracks within the EPE group are:
Advanced multi-physical modeling, including materials.
Electric mobility and transport.
High-tech, cyber-physical, and mechatronic systems and robotics
(including cryogenic, wireless, and advanced drives concepts).
Energy conversion systems.
Artificial intelligence and digital twins of cyber-physical systems.
Furthermore, the EPE group is one of the founders of the High-Tech Systems
Center in which all mechatronic knowledge of the TU/e is bundled.
A PhD degree in Applied Physics, or Electrical, Power, Mechatronics, or
