The Technical University of Denmark solicits applications for the above position, created to support the further development of DTU Chemical Engineering.
The research background of a successful applicant should be within core disciplines of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering, with special focus on applied Bio-Thermodynamics understood as thermodynamics for biotechnology and bioprocesses, with emphasis on both experimental and modeling activities.
Both bio-separations (thermodynamics needed for chromatography and other important separations like crystallization), (bio)reactions (e.g. reaction feasibility - pathways) and also non-equilibrium thermodynamics are of importance as well as physical chemistry of biomolecules.
The suitable candidate is expected to develop cooperation with relevant industrial companies – and close collaboration with research groups of the Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering specializing in the areas of general thermodynamics and biotechnology.
Responsibilities and tasks
The research is expected to be closely related to present activities in applied thermodynamics and biochemical engineering at the department and close cooperation with colleagues both at the department and in other departments of DTU is expected.
The teaching will cover experimental and theoretical Bachelor-, Master- and PhD-level courses in Chemical and Biochemical Engineering as well as in-service training courses for industry. Bachelor courses are primarily taught in Danish, other courses in English. Most courses are taught in Denmark but the department is also responsible for a full Master’s program in Beijing, China, in the framework of Sino-Danish Center for Research and Education.
For international candidates, DTU offers Danish language courses for the purpose of being able to teach in Danish.
We expect you have experience with university research in close interaction with industry, that you have a good track record regarding attraction of external funding and you enjoy teamwork. As teaching and interaction with both undergraduate and graduate students is of vital importance in the job, we expect you to be an experienced teacher and supervisor enjoying the interaction with students.
In the assessment of the candidates, consideration will be given to:
DTU is a leading technical university globally recognized for the excellence of its research, education, innovation and scientific advice. We offer a rewarding and challenging job in an international environment. We strive for academic excellence in an environment characterized by collegial respect and academic freedom tempered by responsibility.
