Technical University of Denmark - DTU Wind and Energy Systems

Location: Roskilde - Denmark
Salary: based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent, Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 6th December 2023

Are you passionate about meteorology and would you like to use your knowledge and skills to contribute to the green energy transition? Then a researcher or senior researcher position at DTU Wind and Energy Systems could be the next step in your research career. 

Responsibilities and qualifications

The position is in the Meteorology and Remote Sensing section at DTU Wind and Energy Systems. We conduct our research on how remote sensing techniques can be used for wind energy applications. You will be part of a team that works with satellite observations of meteorological parameters such as wind, rain, and lightning. You will use the satellite observations and ground based remote sensing data to map wind resources offshore, in order to investigate wind farms and their impact on the wind climate around them, and to predict the damaging effect of rain and lightning on wind turbine blades. 

An important aspect of your daily work will be to participate actively in our current research projects, where you will manage projects and work packages, and interact with internal and external stakeholders. We expect  you  have profound experience in seeking funding for new projects to realize your own ideas and research objectives. You will have a large degree of freedom to plan, execute, and publish your research in collaboration with colleagues as well as external partners from the wind energy industry and other academic institutions. 

Your primary responsibilities and tasks:

  • Retrieve wind, rain and lightning information from satellite observations.
  • Analyze satellite-based data sets in combination with other data types such as ground based remote sensing observations, in situ observations, and outputs from weather models.
  • Disseminate your results in international peer-reviewed journals and conferences.
  • Participate in national and international research projects and take a coordinating role, when needed.
  • Contribute to the ongoing teaching and training activities offered by DTU Wind Energy. 

As a formal qualification, you must hold a PhD degree (or equivalent). Furthermore, good English language communication skills are essential. Applicants should be highly motivated, ambitious, and eager to seek and share knowledge, whilst willing and able to work as part of a team as well as through interdisciplinary collaboration with industrial partners and across the different sections of DTU Wind and Energy Systems. 

More specifically, you should have the following qualifications: 

  • A strong background in meteorology, geophysics or similar.
  • Experience with analysis of spatial data sets from satellites, ground based remote sensing, or weather models.
  • Excellent project management skills including a flair for stakeholder management and coordination of complex projects and activities.
  • Competent programming skills in Matlab or Python.
  • Experience with High Performance Computing (HPC) is an advantage.

Further information may be obtained from Professor Charlotte Bay Hasager (cbha@dtu.dk) or Professor, Head of Section, Jakob Mann (jmsq@dtu.dk).
