Do you have experience in the modelling of novel, advanced civil engineering (CE) materials in order to offer solutions to current societal challenges regarding safety, durability and sustainability? More specifically, do you have the computational mechanics skills to model manufactured CE materials? We are seeking an assistant professor for this specialization.

To benefit from the flexibility offered by manufacturing technologies, a new class of computational techniques is required to support the analysis and design of products, materials and processes. Especially 3D-printing of CE-materials will be a key technology to meet future demands on materials and structures with tunable properties, in view of the advantage of freedom of shape, customisation and on-demand production. The MSM tenure track focuses on development of multiscale modelling techniques to predict (i) residual stress/disortion, surface topology and microstructure including defects, (ii) post-production hydration processes, (iii) microstructure anisotropy due to printing direction, and (iv) the mechanical response of interfaces. Close cooperation with partners in knowledge institutions, other scientific partners and industry is important. The tenure track includes publishing in peer reviewed journal papers, acquiring funding for research (industry, EU and NWO) and contributing to courses on MSc level.


We seek a colleague who has the dedication to pursue a career in academia. You have a scientific track record, and are able to build and give a firm scientific contribution to our knowledge and understanding of modelling of manufactured CE materials. You can, through your research, personality and teaching qualities, inspire co-workers and students alike. Our future colleague is expected to establish a strong, externally funded research programme and is committed to excel in teaching at undergraduate (Dutch or English) as well as graduate level (English).


  • You hold a master degree in civil or mechanical engineering, as well as a PhD and additional experience in a postdoctoral or industrial position.
  • Experience in modelling of mechanical characteristics of printed materials would be highly recommended.
  • You like to work in a team, like to work in a cooperative and amicable environment and possess good organisational and communication skills.
  • You must be proficient in spoken and written English. International applicants are encouraged to acquire knowledge of Dutch.


At the start of the tenure-track you will be appointed as Assistant Professor for the duration of six years. Section leader, department leader and you will agree upon expected performance and (soft) skills. You will receive a start-up package and formal feedback on performance and skills during annual assessment meetings and the mid-term evaluation. If the performance and skills are evaluated positively at the end of the tenure track, you will be appointed in a permanent Assistant Professor position.

TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount for health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged and parttime employment is possible. An International Children’s Centre offers childcare and an international primary school. Dual Career Services offers support to accompanying partners. Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.

TU Delft sets specific standards for the English competency of the teaching staff. TU Delft offers training to improve English competency.

Inspiring, excellent education is our central aim. If you do not yet have your teaching certificate, we allow you up to three years to obtain this.
