Faculty Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science

In de faculteit EWI komen drie disciplines – elektrotechniek, wiskunde en informatica – samen. Gecombineerd versterken ze elkaar en zijn ze de drijvende kracht achter de technologie die we in ons dagelijks leven gebruiken. Neem als voorbeeld het elektriciteitsnet. Dat wordt binnen onze faculteit klaargestoomd voor de toekomst. Ook werken we aan een wereld waarin mens en computer elkaar versterken. Aan het in kaart brengen van ziekteprocessen met behulp van single cell-data en aan het wiskundig simuleren van gigantische aspluimen na een vulkaanuitbarsting. Binnen de faculteit EWI is veel ruimte voor grensverleggend onderzoek. We leiden innovatieve ingenieurs op en beschikken over uitstekende labs en faciliteiten die onze sterke internationale positie onderstrepen. In totaal werken en studeren in deze uitdagende omgeving ruim 1.100 medewerkers en 4.000 studenten.

Research at the Delft Institute of Applied Mathematics (DIAM) centres around the analysis of mathematical models arising in science and engineering. This research is both fundamental and applied in nature, and is often inspired by technical applications. The department plays an active role in translating research results into concrete, practical applications. It maintains intensive contacts with other TU Delft departments, the major technological institutes, and the research laboratories of major companies. Within its own subject field, the department provides teaching for the Applied Mathematics BSc and MSc programmes, and also contributes to the teaching of mathematics courses within other academic programmes at the TU Delft and within national programmes such as “MasterMath”.

The Delft Institute of Applied Mathematics consists of six research groups: Analysis, Mathematical Physics, Numerical Analysis, Applied Probability, Statistics, and Optimisation.

Functie omschrijving

We are looking for a doctoral student to work on the modelling of multi-scale, multi-physics systems for the generation and detection of THz radiation. THz technology has important applications in wireless communications and imaging in for example medicine and security. You will work on the design of efficient and accurate boundary element methods and finite element methods with special focus on the inclusion of non-linearities and the use of domain decomposition methods. You will work on the formulation of physical processes as mathematical problems, the design of numerical methods for their approximate solution, and the implementation of those methods on modern high performance computing infrastructure. You will collaborate with colleagues in different disciplines across mathematics, engineering, and computer science at different international institutes.

This position is for 6 years with a 30% teaching load. In special cases the teaching load can be reduced to 15% for a 4 year period.

Functie eisen

Master in Science, Applied Science, Applied Mathematics or equivalent.

Arbeidsvoorwaarden
