Postdoc in Test and Design of Wind Turbine Structures

Technical University of Denmark is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a new opening postdoctoral position. The deadline for applying is March 31, 2019.

Do you want to be part of a team that develops the future structural design tools and testing methods for very large wind turbine structures? Do you want to contribute to the scientific development of a new and unique facility for testing large structures such as wind turbine rotor blades? Do you want to be working in a large project on blade design, testing and digitalization: RELIABLADE – Improving Blade Reliability through Application of Digital Twins over Entire Life Cycle?

A postdoc position is available at the section Wind Turbine Structures and Component Design at DTU Wind Energy. We focus on the integration of the simulation models and the testing process to develop uniform digital twin platform to provide reliable results for specific cases for knowledge development and research validation.

In the team, we develop methods of integrated testing and sensing to reduce the time and financial effort of physical full-scale blade testing through increased use of virtual testing and development, and investigation of more complex testing methodologies for improved aeroelastic and vibration driven blade response identification. We develop methods and measuring equipment for testing at full scale and sub-component.

The postdoc will have the opportunity to join a cross-disciplinary, international team working on developing design tools and testing methods for wind turbine structures and components.

Good communication skills, patience and a positive attitude to working in a team are essential requirements for the successful applicant.

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.

The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed with the relevant union.
