The department of Electrical Sustainable Energy is offering a tenure track position at the level of at the level of Assistant Professor for the research group IEPG.

- DigitalEnergy:

In future power systems, a flexible mesh of energy resources forms a self-organizing scalable, clean, fair, resilient, and affordable power system. The candidate understands the individual nodes and overarching system-behaviour in order to design and optimize future systems for resiliency, optimization, efficiency, and fairness.

The candidate will work with hardware-in-the-loop (HiL) real time digital grid simulators to develop new types of protection, controls, and management, both in distribution and transmission systems. In order to run a 100% renewable, low-inertia grid reliably and safe, it is the goal to bring digital technology such as IEC 61850 and fast dynamics (EMT) together. The candidate is expected to possess advanced knowledge in electromagnetic transient simulations, smart grids, software coding, protective relaying, real time simulations, controls, and HiL testing. Experience in RTDS is of advantage as the department operates a large RTDS cluster with ancillary equipment such as amplifiers, digital commercial relays, and power electronic converters. The candidate is also expected to have teaching experience and to develop new courses on future power systems and their applications.as well as practicals on HiL testing. Teamplaying is important, since the research group cooperates with complementary groups covering Mathematics or Power Electronics.

The position is intended to strengthen our research line in Digital Power Systems. 


Candidates should have (1) a PhD degree in Electrical Engineering or a closely related discipline, with outstanding academic credentials, (2) several years of working experience as a Postdoctoral Researcher in an academic institution, and (3) the ambition to be a future scientific leader in the area of Digital Energy.

An excellent academic track record reflected by publications in the leading international journals is required. You should have a demonstrated ability to initiate and direct research projects and to obtain external funding. Experience in teaching and mentoring is considered an advantage. You also have an open personality and good communication skills. Demonstrated ability in written and spoken English is required. Knowledge of the Dutch language is an advantage.


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 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.
