Challenge: Develop sensor systems for climate monitoring and agricultural applications.
Change: Drive high-yield, low-emission food production.
Impact: Climate resilience, precision farming, sustainable agriculture.
As the world’s population increases and our climate changes, more efficient and sustainable agricultural methods are needed. To accelerate innovation, the large-scale monitoring of key chemical and biological parameters such as CO2, methane and ammonia levels, soil pH, moisture and nutrient levels is crucial. At the TU Delft, you will be working at the forefront of research into robust, low-cost autonomous sensor systems that will integrate everything from sensors, energy scavengers and packaging to interface electronics, microprocessors and wireless communication systems.
As an Assistant/Associate Professor you will conduct scientific research, developing your vision and your scientific domain. You will grow your team to three or four PhD students whom you’ll be supervising to completion. For your research you’ll build your network of industrial partners and attract funding. You’ll be increasingly involved in teaching and supervising master’s students and possibly bachelor’s students. And you’ll develop academically challenging courses, helping us continuously improve our curriculum.
You’ll join our highly motivated, supportive and cohesive team of professors, teachers, technicians, PhD students and master’s students in the Electronic Instrumentation (EI) and Electronic Components, Technology and Materials (ECTM) groups. At EI and ECTM you’ll find a welcoming and open atmosphere. We have a track record of nurturing talent at various academic levels and will give you all the support you need to evolve in your tenure-track position, including a generous start-up package. Sharing a drive to contribute to the fields of sensors, interface electronics and packaging, we are proud of our ground-breaking research. Our world-class facilities include the fully equipped EKL and Kavli Nanolab cleanrooms, as well as dedicated labs for micro-system assembly, biochemical measurements and sensor characterization
You thrive on generating and realising ground-breaking research, which you may demonstrate by e.g., peer-reviewed publications or patents. You’ll leverage your communication skills to connect with colleagues throughout the faculty, helping us to strengthen our faculty as a whole. You also have the ability to build relevant networks and attract funding. In addition, you enjoy teaching and supervising students.
