The research group has a vacancy for 1,0 fte for an assistant professor/ a tenure track Quantitative Asset Modelling (QAM)

Engineering Asset Management (EAM) is dedicated to the development and application of engineering and managerial solutions to make physical assets as part of (public) infrastructures safe, effective, economic efficient and environmentally-friendly. EAM is all of the activities and processes used to ensure that new and existing infrastructure assets provide balanced performance levels, for a specified time frame, accounting for the entire life-cycle phases (from design to demolish). From an engineering asset to the entire infrastructure system, it uses this life cycle approach at different scales of intervention. The EAM group has a quantitative, data driven modelling and simulation approach connected with the construction management and engineering domain.

The QAM tenure track focuses on integral asset planning and simulation models and service logistics techniques (e.g. Linear/Dynamic Programming, Mont-Carlo simulation, System Dynamics, Serious Gaming and LCC/A engineering models). Challenges for the position includes the development of latest asset information and decision support systems technologies (including BIM). Close cooperation with partners in industry and other scientific partners is key. The tenure track includes publishing in peer reviewed journal papers, acquiring funding for research (industry EU, NWO and TTW) and contributing to EAM courses on MSc level.   


We seek a colleague with an outstanding scientific track record, who is able to integrate quantitative modelling with construction management and engineering challenges and who through his/her research, management skills and teaching qualities can inspire co-workers and students alike. Successful candidates are expected to establish a strong, externally funded research programme and to be committed to excellence in teaching at undergraduate (Dutch or English) as well as graduate level (English). Candidates should hold a master degree with a quantitative orientation (e.g. econometrics, applied mathematics or quantitative engineering sciences), as well as PhD and additional experience in a postdoctoral or industrial position. Programming skills would be highly recommended. The applicant should be able to work in a team environment and possess good organisational and communication skills. He/she 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 leaders 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. 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 have less than five years of experience and do not yet have your teaching certificate, we allow you up to three years to obtain this.
