As an Assistant/Associate Professor your focus will be on the following tasks:

Research in Electrical Sustainable Energy in the field of the design and control of electromechanical devices, including supervising PhD and Master students. The focus will be on innovative theoretical and experimental research on design and control of electromechanical and electromagnetic devices. Breakthroughs are expected from system integration of the electromechanical and electromagnetic devices, advanced real-time control, and methods to increase reliability and availability.

Education: Contributions to teaching in the BSc Electrical Engineering programme and the MSc Electrical Sustainable Energy programme, with a focus on electrical machines and electrical drives.

Management: Acquisition and management of national and international research projects. Establishing strong collaborations with industrial partners.

Participation in international bodies such as IEEE. A holistic approach, in which design, implementation, deployment, and analysis are integrated, is strongly desired; we expect the applicant to actively collaborate with other researchers from academia and industry to realise this aim.


You must have a PhD degree in Electrical Engineering related to electromechanics or control of electrical drives. Overall knowledge and experience with experimental implementation of real-time control of electrical drives, as well as previous work experience in one of these areas, is required.
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.


A tenure-track position is offered for six years. Based on performance indicators agreed upon at the start of the appointment, a decision will be made by the fifth year whether to offer you a permanent faculty position.
The 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.
The TU Delft sets specific standards for the English competency of the teaching staff. The 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.

Technische Universiteit Delft


Delft University of Technology (the TU Delft) is a multifaceted institution offering education and carrying out research in the technical sciences at an internationally recognised level. Education, research and design are strongly oriented towards applicability. The TU Delft develops technologies for future generations, focusing on sustainability, safety and economic vitality. At the TU Delft you will work in an environment where technical sciences and society converge. The TU Delft comprises eight faculties, unique laboratories, research institutes and schools. Electrical Engineering, Mathematics & Computer Science The research in the Department of Electrical Sustainable Energy is inspired by the technical, scientific and societal challenges originating from the transition towards a more sustainable society and focuses on three areas:
• DC Systems, Energy Conversion and Storage
• Photovoltaic Materials and Devices
• Intelligent Electrical Power Grids
The Electrical Sustainable Energy Department provides expertise in each of these areas throughout the entire energy system chain.

The DCE&S group is responsible for research and education in the fields of DC systems, high voltage technology, energy storage, electronic power conversion (power electronics), and electromechanics. DC systems is a multidisciplinary field of research, exploring the electronic power conversion of electrical energy for different applications. The group is currently active in applications such as Direct Current distribution grids and microgrids, electrification of mobility (charging of electric vehicles), and renewable generation of electrical energy (such as wind and solar energy).
