DTU employs two working languages: Danish and English. You are expected to be fluent in at least one of these languages, and in time are expected to master both.
You will be assessed against the responsibilities and qualifications stated above and the following general criteria:
- Documented experience and quality of teaching and curriculum development
- Research impact and experience, funding track record and research vision
- International impact and experience
- Societal impact
- Innovativeness, including commercialization and collaboration with industry
- Leadership, collaboration, and interdisciplinary skills
- Communication skills
A full professor position is available at the Section for Ultrasound and Biomechanics (USB) at the Department of Health Technology.
Your responsibility will be to conduct and lead research in advanced ultrasound imaging, obtain funding for expanding the research group, and teach on our Biomedical Engineering programme with emphasis on imaging, programming, and signal processing at all levels.
Responsibilities The research is conducted at the Center for Fast Ultrasound Imaging (CFU) in the USB section. The focus is on researching advanced ultrasound imaging methods and translating them from the basic acoustics all the way to the clinic. The current emphasis is on super resolution 2-D and 3-D imaging using synthetic aperture methods for anatomic and flow imaging. The research includes developing estimators and processing methods for beamforming, motion estimation, and image quantification for both traditional arrays as well as CMUT and row-column arrays. Of major importance is the implementation on advanced research scanners and the clinical evaluation in collaboration with hospitals. The scientific contributions, thus span from advanced simulations of the acoustics to implementation, laboratory experiments, and validation. You are expected to be able to be part of the leadership of the research and expand the research portfolio.
You must be able to significantly contribute to fund raising, the innovation in the above fields, and be a research leader at the highest international level. This entails being the main advisor of PhD students, writing papers and patents, raising research funds for hiring PhD students and postdocs, developing new strategic initiatives within research and teaching, and maintaining the international level of the research facilities at CFU and the USB Section.
You value visionary and meaningful communication, and you are motivated by delivering and taking the lead in engaging teaching at the BEng, BSc, MSc, and PhD levels. The position will involve teaching in existing courses and developing new relevant course materials by bringing the newest results from your research into our teaching to educate the new generation of engineering graduates within medicine and technology.
Teaching is conducted in collaboration with relevant DTU departments and external partners on topics within advanced ultrasound imaging and general medical imaging. You will develop teaching activities to support DTU’s ambition of having Europe’s best engineering education.
