Postdoc position: Wind farm turbulence

Are you fascinated by the effect of turbulence on wind energy production? Are you highly motivated to work in a dynamic research environment? We are looking for a postdoc to study the influence of atmospheric turbulence on wind farms performance using novel large-eddy simulations!

Advancements in wind turbine technology have resulted in growing use of wind energy to reduce carbon emissions. Modern wind turbines and wind farms are becoming so large that their performance is affected by atmospheric turbulence flow phenomena that are not yet well explored. You will develop novel large-eddy simulation techniques to study how atmospheric turbulence affects wind farm performance

PhD position: Interaction between wind farms

Are you fascinated by the effect of turbulence on wind energy production? Are you highly motivated to do a PhD in a dynamic research environment? We are looking for a PhD student to study flow dynamics in wind farms using state-of-the-art computer simulations!

Advancements in wind turbine technology have resulted in growing use of wind energy to reduce carbon emissions. Modern wind turbines and wind farms are becoming so large that their performance is affected by atmospheric turbulence flow phenomena that are not yet well explored. In this PhD project, you will develop novel large-eddy simulation techniques to investigate the interaction between different wind farm clusters, as is for example planned in the North Sea region, and the interaction with large-scale weather phenomena.

PhD position: Simulations of offshore wind farm turbulence

Are you fascinated by the effect of turbulence on wind energy production? Are you highly motivated to do a PhD in a dynamic research environment? We are looking for a PhD student to study flow dynamics in wind farms using state-of-the-art computer simulations!

Advancements in wind turbine technology have resulted in growing use of wind energy to reduce carbon emissions. Modern wind turbines and wind farms are becoming so large that their performance is affected by atmospheric turbulence flow phenomena that are not yet well explored. In this PhD project, you will develop novel large-eddy simulation techniques to study how atmospheric turbulence and wind-wave interactions affect the power production and structural loading experienced by wind turbines in an offshore environment.

PhD Position in Tunable Thermochemical Energy Storage Composite Materials

Are you fascinated to develop advanced materials for thermochemical energy storage applications? Do you have an experience on synthesis and characterization of functional materials?

We are looking for a 4- year PhD researcher to reinforce our team!

The challenge

Thermochemical heat storage system (TCHS) is a promising technology for the efficient utilization of renewable energy all over the year. One of the main challenges of the TCHS is to develop novel thermochemical storage materials (TCMs) based on the salt hydrates with desired thermal and physical properties and superb cyclic stability. The research will be carried out in collaboration with the UT Membrane Science Technology (MST) department and the University of Amsterdam's Van der Waals-Zeeman Institute (UvA). This role focuses on the development of new formulations of thermochemical materials and fundamental study on their cyclic performance. The position requires an individual with high level of experience and qualifications related to advanced materials, high level analytical capability with proficiency in experiments and an excellent set of skills in the use of relevant analytical equipment.

More in detail, the successful candidate will focus on:

  • Assessment of current TCM materials.
  • Fabrication and characterization of modified inorganic crystal hydrates for TCM applications.
  • Study the adsorption and desorption behavior of composite materials both at single particle and particle bed level.

During this exciting cross-disciplinary project you will acquire unique expertise and outstanding skills through close contact with academic collaborators.

Assistant Professor: Computational Modelling in Medical Robotics

The Department of Biomechanical Engineering at the University of Twente invites candidates for an assistant professor position to complement, extend and strengthen the department's competence in modeling with applications to haptic interactions with medical robots.

Medical robotics include robots assisting surgeons in the during interventions, bionic prosthesis for amputees, wearable exoskeletons to support workers or individuals with physical disabilities, or companion robots. In our department we have developed such robots and evaluated them in (pre-clinical) trials. In collaboration with industrial leaders we also conduct research with existing commercial medical robots to further improve the technology.

Medical robots interact with their environment in a variety of complex scenarios. The development of computational models to simulate and visualize these interactions is essential for the design and development of robotic systems. In order to model and control these systems, the dynamic behaviour must be well-understood and implemented in fast and accurate simulation models. The models can be subsequently applied to learning algorithms or simulators to render the physics in real-time for realistic haptic interaction.

We are looking for a promising female Assistant Professor who will be working on diverse projects in the area of computational modelling with applications to medical robots. The position is funded by a national program that strives for more female professors in engineering.

Candidates should have a successful scientific track record and be able to formulate an independent research program addressing current scientific and technological challenges. We are looking for a team player who proactively searches for collaboration within the faculty and within the cross faculty Twente Robotics Centre.

The candidate is expected to participate in the teaching of courses offered by the department at Bachelor and at Master level to the educational programs technical medicine, industrial design, mechanical engineering, biomedical technology and a new master program Robotics.
