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.
